This is another sound-clip challenge.

I expect the SOTS fans will find it too easy as all the clips were No 1s. but I'm looking to see if this becomes the most viewed quiz Smile

OK I think we've had all our entries in for the 60s quiz.

So, ignoring that some did not include Gary Puckett with Union Gap, or thought it was Bobby Pickett.....

100% points for santafe, Rockitron, Mikeraphone, jennyw, dottiemay

95% for iknewdavidjacobsmum

90% for scorpio and Natasha

75% for toggy teaslurper

Less entries, less views but much better results

Thanks John,
Enjoyed doing that. I do hope my youth will be proved as I knew it was Jim Reeves, but not the song title (probably sent to bed before such a gloomy song was broadcast).
Santafefan, note I shall be posting my ID, ever seen the young Bonnie Langford?

I was born too late - but I'm making up for it by nicking my dad's vinyl collection a record at a time Laughing

Oooo...100%! Well, that's a first Laughing

Well I didn't expect 100% but thank you!

I was a teenager in the 60s and married the singer in a 'pop group' in 1969. Dad told me I wasted my life on music Sad
