Hey SFly,

Yeah, I knew you would love the Song of the Week.

Apologies for posting this bit by bit, but I keep getting interrupted by work:mad:


Jolly Hockeysticks
29th Apr 2002, 05:54
scran, I think f. is another of your multiple possible answers, but we have to guess the one you first thought of;)

My best shot so far is that he's been to Sugar Hill, Rio de Janeiro.

Rio De Janeiro - Barry White


29th Apr 2002, 23:19

By my reckoning, all we need are:

Lyrics - 2 (It's a Google beater!)

More info on 9, 11 and 14 (full answers not here yet!)

Trivia - f (OK Jolly, I hear you) - A Hint, it's a Barry Manilow song

and a bonus point up for grabs on a (didn't answer the whole question Jolly)

Scores so far:

Jolly - 27 (Music quiz for next week in good hands!)
Pigboat - 18
Jet Dragon - 14
SFly - 12 (Jolly stole Marmalade when you were not looking!)
Cooda - 4
Kenny - 4

29th Apr 2002, 23:35
I suppose it's OK that JH did that, or I'd be at 13 again! :eek:
I really should try harder on these music quizzes.

f. Rio - de Janeiro ?


Jolly Hockeysticks
30th Apr 2002, 03:06
Sorry I missed the obvious bit on a.
Streets of London - Ralph McTell


Jolly Hockeysticks
30th Apr 2002, 03:56
9. Poison Ivy - The Coasters (1959)
14. Put A Little Love In Your Heart - Cilla Black

Jolly Hockeysticks
30th Apr 2002, 05:39
For f. a couple of possibilities:

New England, to long rocky beaches and by the bay
Weekend In New England - Barry Manilow

Up, down, tryin' to get the feeling again, All around, tryin' to get the feeling again
Tryin' To Get the Feeling Again - Barry Manilow


30th Apr 2002, 05:51

Getting closer. You won't believe the answer. Then again, it might be a miracle if anyone gets it................(some hints there):D

I'll give you 2 points for 9 - Pigboat had the title, but a later group. And a point for the bonus on a in trivia.

With respect to 14, while Cilla is probably a correct answer, was there an earlier version? Maybe the first person to release that song?

And still looking for the artist in 11 I believe....;) :p

Jolly Hockeysticks
30th Apr 2002, 05:55
scran, are you saying 11 is NOT Harry Belafonte. (Kenny said that earlier on)?

30th Apr 2002, 05:59
Did he release the original version? If so, I'll give it to him, but I thought there might have been another (group) version released first.......:confused:

HHHmmmm....OK....might have made an error her.....Kenny, you get another 3 points for Harry on 11..:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :cool: :D

Kenny Carter

Actually I should have 14 pts because I got 5 for my answer on #8, then 8 for the song of the week = 13, plus one for giving the year on #8 = 14!!!!

But judges decision final!:D
Coming back May 24 scran? I will be away from PPRuNing for a month starting May 25th!

What a turn of events!

:eek: :D

1st May 2002, 02:13

Well, strictly speaking, you get 13.

I didn't agree to an extra point for the year with Lyrics 8!!!!!!!!

HOWEVER - to avoid having that score (13) again this week, (and the fact that I'm going away on a good trip starting friday!) I'll allow the bonus point and let you have 14 for your score.

Last opportunity to bid for the following as well -

Arriving London AM 4 May (flight ex Sydney to be confirmed –either BA16 or QF31), London area till AM 9 May then train to Paris, staying till AM 16 May, then BA305/BA223 to Washington DC, and there until PM 21 May when its QF3086 (an American code share)/QF108 home.

Anyone want to catch up for a drink and a chat, e-mail me please.
