Retroteasers Pop Quiz...
Last night the delicious Darren and I ventured along to The Retro Bar for the Retroteasers Pop Quiz. Why? We'd not been in ages, we had some bridges to build with Wendy and we just thought it'd be fun: we hadn't, we did, it was.
Joining us in team BOYZ PIN-UPS was hunky Boyz editor David Hudson and his glamorous boyfriend George.
The quiz was set by guest question setter Peter and was all based on official UK chart positions. There were four possible answers:
Top 3 (i.e. did it get to 1, 2 or 3)
Top 5 (i.e. did it get to 4 or 5)
Top 10 (i.e. did it get to 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10)
Flop (i.e. failed to make Top 10)
01. Girls On Film - Duran Duran
02. This Town Ain't Big Enough For The Both Of Us - Sparks
03. Make It Easy On Yourself - The Walker Brothers
04. Car Wash - Rose Royce
05. Fame - David Bowie
06. Mad World - Tears For Fears
07. Rocker Fella Skank - Fat Boy Slim
08. Get Down Tonight - K C And The Sunshine Band
09. Say A Little Prayer - Aretha Franklin
10. LSI - The Shamen
11. Roxanne - The Police
12. No Scrubs - TLC
13. Because The Night - Patti Smith
14. Girl From Mars - Ash
15. Bedsitter - Soft Cell
16. Kiss - Prince
17. Georgie Girl - The Seekers
18. Virginia Plain - Roxy Music
19. Blame In On The Boogie - The Jacksons

How well can you do?
We failed miserably and got just eight out of a possible twenty. The winners got sixteen and walked away with the semi-booby prize of CD singles of Rachel Stevens' More, More, More, Marilyn Manson's Personal Jesus and DJ Casper's Opps Upside Your Head. Lucky them.
