Often wonder where the dig them up Phil. We had one in our local bowls club that was so high brow "Eggheads" would have struggled. Our team of regular quizzers got 7 of 20, normally would have expected 17/18. It was all Greek Mythology ,Classical music and remote history. Nearly caused a riot ( if 70 year olds can riot) and even the Vicar was heard to curse :roll: :lol: K

I used to do pub quizzes and I would hope for the majority of teams to get 60-70% of the questions right. You don't want to make it too hard as to make people look thick, Ken but you do have to make them think.

Wow Graham, that must have been a tough quiz. You're right, Ken, I was just hoping there were no other teams named after explorers :D

Apologies Bill; I've only just seen your answer. Apparently there are other football teams. :oops: I'll have to give it to Ken though as that was the team i was thinking of. I'll have to stop thinking of questions by myself. :D

Actually a good answer by Bill, Livingston never occurred to me but I have seen Vasco play in Brazil so that immediately came to mind. Question follows. Ken

As an aside on the theme of holiday quiz nights - in Gran Canaria several years ago we won the bar quiz and looked forward to our prize - an Italian meal for two. Imagine the disappointment when presented with a tin of Spaghetti! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ta, Ken. Here is a pop question that I heard on Tony Blackburn's show this morning.
What record"s lyrics, consist of just questions?

I'll let it run a day or two, Ken, if it's too specialised I'll ask another. I just found it fascinating that I've heard this record, countless times but did not make the connection :shock:

Could it be that ? Ken

Not that one Ken, there are some lyrics saying "you make me sad, you make me glad, you make me wanting something I've never had." The clue is, 99% of the lyrics are questions, including the title. :)

Phil, I was listening to Sounds of the Sixties, presume you were.
I know we can't Google, I didn't, but did use another route so will let it run overnight. K :D

Not that one Bill, here are some of the lyrics.

You know someone said that the world's a stage
And each must play a part.
Fate had me playing in love you as my sweet heart.
Act one was when we met, I loved you at first glance.

Hi Phil, they are just the lyrics on the Elvis version.
The song was written by Lou Handman and did not include those words. The Mavericks and others have recorded it with just the original lyrics.

Yes ok Bill; I'll cede to your extensive general knowledge. I've Googled the Mavericks version and you are right. Even with Tony Blackburn's help I can't set a definitive question. :)

My answer was the Three Degrees with, When will I see you again. Hence my pedantry with Ken. So once bitten, twice shy, its your turn. Well done Bill. I should have known though, my wife is a big Mavericks fan. I think I'll pinch my next question out of the many quiz books I have, but I'll set it with the proviso that the quiz master is always right :D :lol:

Although I listened to Tony in the AM; i heard the record on Pick of the pops in the PM. :oops: Your record doesn't count Ken, as it has thesr lyrics. :D

Save my love through loneliness
Save my love for sorrow
I'm given you my oneliness
Come give your tomorrow

Hi Phil, after looking at the lyrics of ' When will I see you again' I have to concede that it has more questions in it than 'Are you lonesome tonight' but I will still set th next question.

What was the name of the land of the Giants in Gullivers Travels?
