Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my...
At the Retro Bar's Pop Quiz last night Wendy's outfit was a picture. Bunches, cowgirl jeans, faded blue gingham cotton shirt. See looked just like Dorothy from the Wizard Of Oz. So naturally our team name was... Friends of Dorothy. We teased her a bit during the quiz but she didn't cotton (geddit!!) on until the end. Out team had the full compliment of David, Dave, Juggy and me so hopes were high. Wendy tried to stir up a bit of friendly rivalry between us and The Reader's Wifes team which wasn't really there. That's to say the 'friendly' bit wasn't there. The rivalry was there in spades. The quiz itself had a theme. The alphabet. So answers were:-
ABC
Name the members of Dee-Lite (Lady Miss Kier, Towa Tei and Dimitri)
Eve
Aretha Franklin
Serge Gainsbourg
Lauryn Hill
Name the year Chris Isaak's Wicked Game was a hit (we got this wrong dropping a full point with 1991 - it was late 1990)
Johnny Cash / Grace Jones
Ronan Keating - Lovin' each day
Led Zeppelin - Black Dog (we got the band but not the song so dropped a half point)
Barry Manilow / Frank Sinatra
Stevie Nicks
Definitely Maybe
Perez Prado - Guaglione
Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, John Deacon
Michael Stipe
The Sopranos
The The - Matt Johnson
Ultravox - 1980
Visage
Robbie Wiliams - Supreme
X-ray Specs - Germ Free Adolescent
Yello - Shirley Bassey
Zombies - She's Not There
So we got twenty-two and a half out of twenty-four. The Reader's Wifes got twenty-three pipping us at the post (yet again). Luck smiled on us at the end though. They got the booby prize of Ronan Keating's CD.
