Weekly Quiz – Number Five – Part One. First Lines Of Songs.

This is a very long Quiz so I’m splitting it into two, Part two will be published next week.


1 point for song, 1 for singer/group = max 140 points. If there are several versions just put the most popular one, but any recorded version will get you the point. It is easy to cheat by feeding these lines into Google or having Alexa in your team, but where’s the satisfaction in that? Stick at it and the answer will come, possible at 4.00am!
