City of origin of the band ‘they might be giants’... and go...

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

Sex pistols?

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

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

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

I dunno WildRosie wot was it, ha ha ha!

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

Wot was the other Captain Sensible hit.

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?

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

Careless whisper by George Michael is one of them.

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.

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

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

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!

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


Neil Tennant!

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?

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

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

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

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

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

I only know Happy Talk by Captain Sensible.

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!)

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 23:42:22

Who’s that girl? Eurythmics.

I’m sorry I had to look it up.

xsquared Sun 03-Nov-19 23:30:40

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.

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

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

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 16:13:00

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

wowfudge Thu 31-Oct-19 11:29:50

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

xsquared Thu 31-Oct-19 09:00:19


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

xsquared Mon 28-Oct-19 20:51:58

Sorry Mhairi Fahey played Eileen.

xsquared Mon 28-Oct-19 20:51:17

Mhairi Fahey okayed Eileen, who is Siobhan's sister of Bananarama.
