Sticking with Bananarama, in which music video by which Band do Bananarama plus future member Jackie O' Sullivan appear?

I only know cos I cheated and looked it up. So it's not fair of me to answer.

LoveMySituation Sun 03-Nov-19 16:13:00

So did I fudge. Kept hoping someone would answer on here but they haven't grin

WildRosie Sun 03-Nov-19 19:51:08

I'll relaunch once more, if I may. Name Captain Sensible's three top twenty hits.

LoveMySituation Sun 03-Nov-19 20:13:25

Happy talk is the only one I know I think. Does with the damned count? thlwink

Ok. I'll give a clue re: Bananarama appearance in a video. It is a duo which had the spouse of one of the Bananarama girls. Not Wham if that helps.

BareKneesDeCourcy Sun 03-Nov-19 23:42:22

Who’s that girl? Eurythmics.

I’m sorry I had to look it up.

BareKneesDeCourcy Sun 03-Nov-19 23:45:37

Wrong thread but DID YOU KNOW that Captain Sensible and Paul O’Grady were probably separated at birth?

BareKneesDeCourcy Sun 03-Nov-19 23:54:44

Who was it that said having a number one single felt like vaguely nothing, like having a cup of tea?

(I remember reading it in Smash Hits back then!)

xsquared Sun 03-Nov-19 23:54:48

I only know Happy Talk by Captain Sensible.

xsquared Sun 03-Nov-19 23:55:39

Bareknees I vaguely remember that. Was that Hollie Johnson or Neil Tennant?

LoveMySituation Mon 04-Nov-19 00:11:20

I thought it was Boy George @bareknees, about sex grin

MsPepperPotts Mon 04-Nov-19 00:47:49

And all the roads jam up with credit
And there's nothing you can do
It's all just bits of paper flying away from you.

Do you know which song these lyrics are from?

BareKneesDeCourcy Mon 04-Nov-19 01:01:22


Neil Tennant!

BareKneesDeCourcy Mon 04-Nov-19 01:03:35


Oh apparently Boy George said he’d rather have a cup of tea than sex.

These pop stars are so British!

Tartyflette Mon 04-Nov-19 02:16:08

Boy George has subsequently admitted that the cup of tea thing was a big fat lie...

wowfudge Mon 04-Nov-19 07:15:51

Glad it's all Over was another Captain Sensible hit.

Road to Hell by Chris Rea is the lyrics.

Name three hits of the 80s or 90s written by the artists as teenagers.

xsquared Mon 04-Nov-19 07:27:24

Careless whisper by George Michael is one of them.

BareKneesDeCourcy Mon 04-Nov-19 10:37:31

Debbie Gibson, Only in my dreams.

PS surely we can make sexy sex, THEN have a cup of tea?

WildRosie Mon 04-Nov-19 17:51:00

Wot was the other Captain Sensible hit.

BareKneesDeCourcy Mon 04-Nov-19 17:55:39

I dunno WildRosie wot was it, ha ha ha!

WildRosie Mon 04-Nov-19 20:01:00

Larf. With which 70s punk band was Tenpole Tudor associated ?

xsquared Wed 06-Nov-19 08:05:43

Sex pistols?
