    Like Tubthumping by Chumbawamba (One of my favourites - well what would you expect from someone who likes a whisky drink and a cider drink!)

    Put that, Bohemian Rhapsody and We All Stand Together together and you have 3 of my top favourites.

    Two of my favourite for this would have to be "Estranged" by G'n'R and "Immigrant song" by Led Zeppelin. :)
     
  3. Good ones :) A couple more- Hymn for the Weekend, and Annie's Song. :D
     
  4. Classics - Baba o Riley by The Who, Bowie's Space Oddity, Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit. And in the spirit of your trivia questions, I'll add the following:

    Which band gave titles to over 25% of their songs which did not appear in the song's lyrics - at least 25 out of 87 recognized tracks by the group?

  10. Ah, good ones- sorry Imissed that question! My guess would have been Madness- not sure why though.

    Cardiac Arrest from Madness doesn't mention the ttitle in the song- but hints at it as a crossword clue. :p Think of 7 letters, begin and end in c....like a big American car but this spelt with a d...

    One more question- How many Kings have been crowned King of England?

    Maybe about 30? Was thinking nothing past the Stewarts count, James I being king of England and Scotland? (Perhaps I'm over thinking the question though lol)

    Hmmm.... church history + growing up in Alfred The Great's capital means I'm interested in this one.
    Some say that Alfred was the first King of England. But others say there were Saxon kings before him who qualify as Kings of England. So, counting them, I think the answer's 54.
    There were 2 uncrowned Kings of England, I think. Edward VIII was one and I've in mind another who I don't think was actually crowned many centuries ago. I could be wrong about that other one.....
    @nickjee Our James I was James VI of Scotland, so does qualify as a King of England.
    We did have a joint monarchy once (i.e. a King and a Queen at the same time.... not talking joint monarchy as in King of more than one country jointly).

  19. For the Kings: How many KINGS have been crowned King of England? Just one- King James VI . All the rest where Princes , Dukes etc when they were crowned!

    Although, debatable. :p
