Bringing it all together...
Having spent quite some time researching one of David's postings I shall now try and bring it together with another one.

How many palindromes can you think of in pop, either artist name or song title or both? They must read the same backwards as forwards so The Grateful Dead's AOXOMOXOA would count, as would The Electric Light Orchestra's OLE ELO. Bela Fleck and the Fleckstones had the amusing titled UFO TOFU but these are all a little obscure. There are some much, much more obvious ones than that. So to get you all in gear for tonight's Pop Quiz try your hand at these easy ones:-

1. Can you name two very famous palindrome band names? One of these bands had a big hit with a palindrome song. Can you name that too?
2. Can you name Steely Dan's famous palindromic album?
3. Black Sabbath and The Misfits both had very similar palindromic titles. Can you name either?
