Between 1998 and 1999, there were three songs with "kiss" in their title that reached Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Name the songs and the artists/bands.

^^^ Correct.

Hmmm, Beds are Burning is about Aboriginal land rights.

^^ First part correct. Now can you name the second hits for both A-ha and Aqua?

^ They did. (That was the difficult part of the question.)

Hint: one of them was from a film soundtrack.

“Stones sued The Verve for copyright infringement because the … track was based on a sample of the Stones' song The Last Time.
... The Verve had secured permission to use a five-note section of The Last Time.
The deal, brokered by… Allen Klein, would see the songwriting royalties split 50-50…
But the deal broke down when Klein accused The Verve of using more than had been agreed to...
"They rung up and said we want 100 per cent or take it out of the shops, you don't have much choice."

The Britpop act relinquished their rights.”

From this blatant 'Sweet Child o' Mine' rip off, name the song and artist.

Holy crap! I just saw where 'Cracked Rear View' stands in the all time highest selling studio albums in America.

1. Thriller
2. Hotel California
3. Led Zeppelin IV
4. The Wall
5. Back in Black
6. Cracked Rear View
(/>I remember hearing it was in the world's top 20 highest selling albums of all time.

(Funnilly, in my country Hootie and the Blowfish were basically a one hit wonder. I just saw their second album went to #12, but I really can't remember any song other than 'Let Her Cry'. (/ class="postlinks">Go To Top of page

I thought i would throw in some questions here.

What actress was the inspiration for the Rick James song "Cold Blooded"? It's a head turner.

What Group was 2Pac once a member of?

Almost everybody has heard of the lady known as Elvira, Mistress Of The Dark. What is the name of the group that did the song "Elvira"?


One hit pop chart wonders:

Believe It Or Not (Theme From The Greatest American Hero)
Heaven Help Me
Shake You Down
What's Up
Cars

Can you match the artists with these songs?

- Hmmm... is it Ray Parker Jnr ("Ghostbusters")?
For some reason, I thought this song was by Parker until I looked it up.

[Which American band had the hit 'Waiting for a Star Fall'?]
Correct. Wow! I'm impressed.

I didn't know and had to look it up. When I did, I saw that its members' wrote the 80s mega hit 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody"

Just quickly wanted to say pity Cars / Numan is known as a one hit wonder as I thought too before I listened to his first 2 albums Replicas & Pleasure Principle (album with Cars) which are both absolutely brilliant and perhaps overlooked for that reason.

Hmmm... I haven't heard that song in decades, so from my very vague memories:

Lionel Ritchie
Kenny Rogers
Willie Nelson
Al Jureau
Paul Simon
Michael Jackson
Paul Simon
Huey Lewis
Bruce Springsteen
Cindy Lauper
Kim Carne

Interestingly, I can't seem to remember Billy Joel or Madonna.

^ All right, I just found out that song wasn't a hit in America. Their biggest song in America was "Roll With It" (95). (For completeness, their third (and only other) hit was 'Kiss This Thing Goodbye'.)

Funnilly, in an interview in the late 90s Rob Thomas sighted this band as one of his favourites. The interviewer asked "Are they still around?

Next question: What was Sheryll Crow's first single (and what album was it from)?

I saw this on her Facebook page (I follow her on there) the other day. I'm happy for her and also happy that she announced she signed with BMG. She said she is writing new music so maybe she will have a new album by next year.
