please empty your brain below

No more than two guesses each please.

13 -> 2 much
24 -> 2 become 1

(spice 4ever!!!)

1 - Bohemian Rhapsody
4 - Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)

At last, I've got an answer!

30 - Something Stupid (Robbie & Nicole)
18 - Don't You Want Me? (Human Leauge)

11 - Mistletoe and Wine
17 - Feed the World?

Dear Mr Geezer, sir

When was No.16 a Christmas No.1? Seems to be from "Saving all my love for you" by Whitney Houston. Right artist but wrong song?


Dear Ms Jones-Rowbottom

No 16 was indeed a Christmas number 1 for the aforementioned Ms Houston, in 1992.

But Mr Geezer, sir

In 1992 Ms Houston had a number 1 with a certain song from the film "The Bodyguard" which did not contain those lyrics, the one she sang in 1985, did though!

Mandy x

Ah, drat.
Ok, hang on while I change that and stick the proper lyric in instead.

Grrr, I'm then going to have to renumber part of the quiz. Don't worry, nobody will notice.


9) Can We Fix It?
14) Sound of the Underground

Oh, good, another Xmas lyric competition

7. Slade-Merry Xmas Everybody
8. Mud-Lonely This Christmas

25 - Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End) - Darkness

27 - These Are The Days Of Our Lives - Queen

20 is Abba - the song is I have a dream - I think.

29 just has to be from a song called Ebeneezer Good - not sure who sings it - but he's a philosopher is a great "geezer" !!!

2) A Child is Born (but I don't remember who it was by).
5) Save Your Love - Renee and Renato.

Is it really only two guesses each, or will you extend that if not enough answers are given?

Jag - 20's the right song but wrong group.
And 29 definitely isn't Good

10 - Shakin' Stevens (1985 I think without looking it up)

15 - Mary's Boy Child
10 - Merry Christmas Everyone (Shakin Stevens)

i hope

20 I have a dream - Westlife

3 - Goodbye - Spice Girls

29 - Mr Blobby's The Blobby Song

12 - Mull of Kintyre - Macca & the bagpipes
23 - Only You - Yazoo

So many memories sob

oops! - What was that you were saying about the Darkness being #1?

Thankfully the result is altogether more pleasing.

Just updating the blog entry as we speak

22- Mad World

Oh hooray - I'm just back from work and there's still some left to answer!

#6 is Micheal Jackson's Earth Song, while #28 is on the tip of my tongue. Oo, going to annoy me all day now!

No 26 is Saviors day by Cliff Richard

No 21 is Reete Petit by Jakie Wilson

I'll try again a write it porperly
No 21 Reet Petite - Jackie Wilson

Baby if you've got to go away, don't think I could.. etc etc.

#28 is Stay Another Day by East-17. On the playlist in another department at work today, I knew I'd heard it recently. Quite like that one.

I like that one too.
Which just leaves number 19, anyone?

There's no one quite like grandma?

St winifrids school choir

I know this is my third....Oh dear.... St.Winnifreds and "No-one Quite Like Grandma" I fear..... still IMHO this years is nearly as bad. I know 'tis one you've been championing but I don't get it.. maybe as they seem to have been playing it for the last 6 months on XfM I've had too much... and at least the Tears for Fears version was over quicker (sorry, not a fan and I rather liked the absurdity of the Darkness one).

AND I'm in big trouble as I'd told my kids the Darkness WERE #1 for Xmas... even more evidence that dad doesn't know what he's talking about!

Doh! And I took so long to write it I got beaten anyway, rats!

That's the lot!
Full set of answers here.
Merry Xmas Everybody

what happened to the top of your post? last night it looked different.

Er, everyone assumed The Darkness were going to win the Xmas No 1 race, by miles, so originally I went along with that. Like so...

I was underwhelmed by The Darkness when I saw them at Knebworth back in August. Maybe that's what comes of spending too many hours of my life in Lowestoft. Nevertheless that's no musical turkey they've pulled out of the hat this Christmas, and singer Justin's glam bravado will win the band a coveted place in the festive chart hall of fame later this afternoon. Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End) will be the first Christmas record to top the Christmas chart since 1990, and also only the sixth Christmas number one in 50 years to mention the word 'Christmas' in the title.

And then everyone turned out to be wrong, and Gary Jules slipped in instead, so I rewrote the intro. Damn, somebody noticed
