Roxy Music  (OK so I googled after I had a guess, right?  I am now correct so I move on and ask a question?)


What singer from a British band sang the lead vocal for Style Council's "The Paris Match"? 

Uh, Miss Dark Angel, I see you did not google to confirm your answer! Paul Weller was in the Style Council but the lovely song was sung so beautifully by Tracey Thorne from Everything But The Girl.  Oh I'll give you a pass on that one because it is old and unless you liked those bands you would have no way of knowing it. Paul Weller was a good guess. Just take this advice from your forum mother- GOOGLE! ;)

Sorry, back to original members of Jackson Five?

OK, I'll try Jermaine, Jackie, Tito, Marlon and Michael.  (Google now-Yes, I am correct ;D)


Well this one is hard but you can research it. What was the name of the 50's style band that featured
Cyndi Lauper as lead singer before she went solo way back in the 80's?

Well you said wrote and recorded, so I think it is the Byrds (not Doobie Brothers).

Which band did the Talking Heads' Tina Weymouth and Chris Franz form on their own in 1980?  (Kind of easy)

Well either this thread is dying a fast death or perhaps I've stumped you. I will give it away so the next person can move on.

H I N T:   They like to Rock the Casbah ;)  I think this band threw the Prunes off the stage at this gig.

The Clash!!! I watched that music video the other day... I love the armadillo...

Who's Eno collaborating with currently? (As in, the artist is beginning to tour again. Not U2, obviously.)

I'll hint if needed, but I doubt you guys will need it, 'cause you're all so clever...
