The answer to question 15. Elton John charted with "Nikita" at the same time as Sting had which coincidental hit? was this *cue video*

I didn't know it myself and I see why now (thanks Google/YouTube) ^)

03-03-20, 04:12 PM
Thank you oh wise Quizmaster, but surely thereís been some sort of calculation error?

03-03-20, 04:19 PM

Guys was wondering what type of quiz you would like next, general knowledge (harder or easier?) or some sort of themed quiz leave your thoughts here please :)

To be honest love, I love the quizzes - my family love the quizzes so we're just grateful for anything you put together as I know how much time and effort they take!

09-03-20, 09:11 PM
I love your quizzes Mike. I love springing bizarre questions on my family. Loved the pop quiz as it was definitely my era and because A and I have such varying music taste, between us we had a lot of the answers. Any topic is fab. X
