# Pop Quiz! #

0:00:320:00:33

All right, that's enough. Good evening.

0:00:400:00:42

I'm Mike Read, and this is the return of Pop Quiz.

0:00:420:00:45

Yes, Pop Quiz: The Comeback!

0:00:450:00:47

First broadcast in 1981, now back after more than 35 years.

0:00:470:00:50

As a tribute to that wonderful era,

0:00:500:00:52

tonight's show is an '80s special, complete with six '80s pop stars.

0:00:520:00:56

I could probably get away with using the same questions, but we won't.

0:00:560:01:00

Pop Quiz, of course, was the BBC's prime-time Saturday night show,

0:01:000:01:03

the sort of Strictly of its day, without sequins,

0:01:030:01:06

except when Leeee John was on. But tonight, no sequins.

0:01:060:01:09

Talking of which, let's introduced tonight's guests.

0:01:090:01:12

A top trio of tremendous talent. From the Thompson Twins, Tom Bailey.

0:01:120:01:15

-Hello.

-APPLAUSE

0:01:150:01:19

The original queen of the beehive, Mari Wilson.

0:01:190:01:21

APPLAUSE

0:01:210:01:22

And their team captain, hoping to lead them to victory,

0:01:220:01:25

from Imagination, if I can read his writing,

0:01:250:01:27

the talented and strikingly good-looking -

0:01:270:01:29

yes, I can read his writing - Leee John.

0:01:290:01:31

CHEERING

0:01:310:01:34

OK, let's have a look at how they were back in the day.

0:01:360:01:39

# Doctor, doctor

0:01:390:01:42

# Can't you see I'm burning, burning

0:01:420:01:45

# Oh, doctor, doctor... #

0:01:470:01:49

# Just what I've always wanted

0:01:490:01:53

# Oh-oh, just what I've always

0:01:550:01:58

# Wanted. #

0:01:580:02:00

# Could it be that

0:02:000:02:02

# It's just an illusion

0:02:020:02:05

# Putting me back

0:02:050:02:07

# In all this confusion... #

0:02:070:02:09

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:02:090:02:12

-All right.

-LEEE LAUGHS

0:02:120:02:14

Mari, we saw you there with your famous beehive.

0:02:180:02:20

Someone told me your beehive was so big you had a car with a sunroof.

0:02:200:02:23

I had an Austin A40 with a sunroof,

0:02:230:02:25

and my hair could poke through. It was very handy.

0:02:250:02:27

And you would hear the Jaws theme as I was coming down the road.

0:02:270:02:30

Tom, I wondered about your altercation with Grace Jones.

0:02:320:02:35

Russell Harty had one. I know you had one as well, didn't you?

0:02:350:02:38

It wasn't an altercation,

0:02:380:02:40

just, the first time I met Grace, I was working in a studio

0:02:400:02:43

late at night, and to take a break, went into the reception area.

0:02:430:02:47

And a limousine arrives and out steps Grace, and of course,

0:02:470:02:51

she thinks I'm the night porter, so she said, you know,

0:02:510:02:55

"Which room am I in? Take my bags to my room."

0:02:550:02:59

So, you know, she's quite an imposing person, I thought,

0:02:590:03:01

"I'd better just behave." Took her bags, and then later,

0:03:010:03:04

when she tried to tip me, I said,

0:03:040:03:06

"No, actually, I'm one of the musicians playing in the studio."

0:03:060:03:08

-Should have taken the money!

-It was only 50p, I think.

0:03:080:03:11

LAUGHTER

0:03:110:03:13

Leee, you've had some outrageous outfits.

0:03:130:03:15

You've toned down a little for tonight, I see.

0:03:150:03:16

Yeah, I knew I was coming here.

0:03:160:03:18

I mean, this one here, look at those legs. Don't they look good?

0:03:180:03:21

I still got them.

0:03:210:03:23

But... One of them, actually, we have a track called Burning Up,

0:03:230:03:27

and when we were live on stage, it actually caught on fire.

0:03:270:03:30

And I was burning up, literally.

0:03:300:03:33

It was like, I called it the Green Hornet,

0:03:330:03:35

cos it was like a cloak, and I be going,

0:03:350:03:37

# I'm burning up # and I was like this, "Aargh!"

0:03:370:03:39

And it went on fire.

0:03:390:03:40

And the audience thought it was part of the show.

0:03:400:03:43

Up against Leee John's team, a three-pronged hit machine

0:03:430:03:46

featuring, from Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark,

0:03:460:03:48

Andy McCluskey. APPLAUSE

0:03:480:03:52

From Spandau Ballet, Steve Norman.

0:03:520:03:54

-Thank you.

-APPLAUSE

0:03:540:03:57

And doing her best to keep them in order,

0:03:570:04:00

it's not a mystery. It's Toyah.

0:04:000:04:02

APPLAUSE

0:04:020:04:04

And let's have a look at them as they were back in the 1980s.

0:04:070:04:10

# Enola Gay

0:04:110:04:13

# You should have stayed at home yesterday... #

0:04:130:04:16

# Oh, it can't describe

0:04:160:04:19

# The feeling and the way you lied... #

0:04:190:04:24

SAXOPHONE SOLO

0:04:240:04:27

# It's a mystery

0:04:340:04:36

# Oh, it's a mystery

0:04:360:04:39

# I'm still searching

0:04:390:04:42

# For a clue... #

0:04:420:04:43

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:04:430:04:46

Oh. All our yesterdays.

0:04:460:04:49

You know, songs can be very useful,

0:04:490:04:52

not just at bringing in royalties and letting you go out on the road

0:04:520:04:54

and play, but Andy and the gang once had their lives saved, I believe,

0:04:540:04:58

by one of your songs, didn't you, when you were touring abroad?

0:04:580:05:01

We did, it was quite terrifying, actually.

0:05:010:05:04

We were driving in this customised small American bus,

0:05:040:05:06

and we didn't realise that the Red Brigade terrorists

0:05:060:05:09

used the same type of bus.

0:05:090:05:11

We got surrounded, machine guns, dragged off to a police station.

0:05:110:05:14

Fortunately, Enola Gay had been a huge hit,

0:05:140:05:17

and we got out of jail by waving this magazine around

0:05:170:05:20

with our faces on it, going "Enola Gay, pop. Not terrorists."

0:05:200:05:24

It was... I mean, if it hadn't been terrifying,

0:05:240:05:26

it would have been funny.

0:05:260:05:27

But it was actually terrifying at the time!

0:05:270:05:29

Well, you escaped from Italy, and Stephen,

0:05:290:05:31

you escaped from Spain, having... I mean, you are a good sax player,

0:05:310:05:34

but it doesn't work out like that every night, does it?

0:05:340:05:37

Oh, my goodness.

0:05:370:05:39

So we're going back, this is about the late '80s,

0:05:390:05:41

and we're playing in front of the King and Queen of Spain,

0:05:410:05:45

and this is one of the most important gigs of my life.

0:05:450:05:49

I knew my future wife was going to be there, for example, watching it.

0:05:490:05:52

And the royalty, in front of Montjuic Palace,

0:05:520:05:55

the fairy lights are going, I've got a big solo,

0:05:550:05:58

they're buzzing, all of a sudden, there I am.

0:05:580:06:01

And as opposed to this really cool muted trumpet,

0:06:010:06:04

"the lady loves Milk Tray" kind of sound,

0:06:040:06:07

this machine decided to jump a step up to the next programme,

0:06:070:06:11

which was a harmonica tuned half a tone down,

0:06:110:06:15

and you can imagine how excruciatingly painful that is.

0:06:150:06:19

Not just to witness it, but to hear it in front of

0:06:190:06:22

the whole of Spain, live for the whole of Spain.

0:06:220:06:24

-And you're still in the band?

-Thanks for reminding me about that!

0:06:240:06:28

We had been talking about Duran versus Spandau,

0:06:280:06:30

-the rematch, haven't we?

-We have. Yes.

0:06:300:06:33

Well, I mean, not a lot of people know that

0:06:330:06:36

they were a little bit liberal with the truth.

0:06:360:06:40

-What you're saying is they cheated?

-They did.

0:06:400:06:42

Toyah, you've been a bit of a wild child as well.

0:06:420:06:45

Adam Ant swung from a chandelier in a video,

0:06:450:06:47

but you actually did it for real.

0:06:470:06:49

Apparently, I did it for real in a hotel in Manchester,

0:06:490:06:52

and I now have a lifetime ban from the hotel.

0:06:520:06:55

We'd just played Manchester Apollo and it was just a fantastic concert,

0:06:550:06:59

and the thing is, you've then got all night at a hotel.

0:06:590:07:03

You never go to sleep, you're just revved up,

0:07:030:07:05

so by five in the morning, we were being chased around the hotel,

0:07:050:07:09

five in the morning, by the security,

0:07:090:07:11

cos we'd already stolen a life-size zebra and put it on the tour bus.

0:07:110:07:17

And I thought, "I'm not going to go in the lift,

0:07:170:07:19

"I'm not going to go down the stairs,

0:07:190:07:21

"I'm going to get down to the reception by chandelier."

0:07:210:07:25

And I dived off this balcony and I hung on to the chandelier.

0:07:250:07:31

-You're not staying there tonight, are you?

-No, I'm banned!

0:07:310:07:33

Just checking.

0:07:330:07:34

Tonight's show, as you may have spotted, is an '80s extravaganza,

0:07:350:07:38

so all the questions will be from that era.

0:07:380:07:41

Give me a correct answer and I will give you a point.

0:07:410:07:43

I once gave Meat Loaf a bonus point,

0:07:430:07:45

for which he thanked me in his own tender way.

0:07:450:07:47

If everyone's ready, time to get your '80s brains and lips in gear.

0:07:480:07:51

Let's play Pop Quiz.

0:07:510:07:52

APPLAUSE

0:07:520:07:55

# Pop quiz! #

0:07:550:07:56

OK, Round One. I'll play you a few seconds from the start of a song.

0:07:590:08:03

You have to name it. Better known as the intros round.

0:08:030:08:06

I want to know the track and the original artist. A point for each.

0:08:060:08:09

It's an individual round, so no conferring.

0:08:090:08:12

OK, so, Tom, yours is first. Here comes your intro.

0:08:120:08:16

0:08:290:08:32

0:08:370:08:39

DRUMS CRASH AND SYNTHESIZER PLAYS

0:08:390:08:42

OK, Andy. Any ideas?

0:08:500:08:51

Is it Prince?

0:08:510:08:53

-GROANS FROM AUDIENCE

-No? No.

0:08:530:08:56

If it's not electronic, I haven't a clue.

0:08:560:08:58

I won't give you a point, but I'll pass you over. Do you know?

0:08:580:09:00

-Easy Lover.

-It's Easy Lover. Yes, Phil Bailey.

0:09:000:09:03

-And Phil Collins!

-You mean Phil Collins?!

0:09:030:09:06

Phil Collins and Phil Bailey.

0:09:060:09:07

-Oh, yes. Philip Bailey from Earth, Wind and Fire.

-They did it together.

0:09:070:09:11

Yeah. Can I just go now, cos I'm not going to score any?

0:09:110:09:13

LAUGHTER

0:09:130:09:15

It is, in fact, yes, Easy Lover, Phil Bailey, Phil Collins.

0:09:150:09:17

And back to your team. And, Mari, here comes your intro.

0:09:170:09:20

MID-TEMPO PERCUSSION AND SYNTHS

0:09:200:09:24

HE HUMS

0:09:320:09:34

THEY SING

0:09:360:09:37

I've got no idea. I have to be honest.

0:09:370:09:39

Oh, Leee's in the groove, he's in the groove.

0:09:390:09:42

HE SINGS It's coming to him.

0:09:420:09:44

But it's not his question, so it's irrelevant!

0:09:440:09:46

LAUGHTER

0:09:460:09:47

I can throw it over.

0:09:470:09:48

We think it's Bananarama.

0:09:480:09:50

And...

0:09:510:09:53

-You don't get a point. Just for the kudos, this.

-Oh, OK.

0:09:530:09:57

I can tell you a funny story about Bananarama.

0:09:570:09:59

LAUGHTER

0:09:590:10:00

-It's the only way I'm going to get any points.

-OK.

0:10:000:10:03

We did a charity show two weeks ago with them,

0:10:030:10:05

and the guy doing the monitors came up to me and I said,

0:10:050:10:07

"I don't like these, can I change them?

0:10:070:10:09

"But have Bananarama already sound checked?"

0:10:090:10:11

And he went, "I thought you WERE Bananarama."

0:10:110:10:14

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:10:140:10:16

Well, looking forward to your new album, then, Andy!

0:10:190:10:22

LAUGHTER

0:10:220:10:23

No points for that, but I can, in fact, reveal it is Cruel Summer.

0:10:230:10:26

-Cruel Summer!

-Cruel Summer!

0:10:260:10:28

OK. Over to Toyah's team, and Steve, here's your intro.

0:10:280:10:31

UPBEAT PIANO AND HORNS PLAY

Wow.

0:10:340:10:35

Oh, my goodness. It's a...

0:10:410:10:43

Is it Kid Creole And The Coconuts?

0:10:430:10:45

AUDIENCE: Yes.

0:10:450:10:46

It is? But I don't know what it's called.

0:10:460:10:48

-Can I... Can I mime?

-We'll give you one for the artist.

0:10:480:10:50

Bawk-bawk-bawk.

0:10:500:10:52

Doesn't make that sound. That's a chicken!

0:10:520:10:54

I'm sitting on a windowsill.

0:10:540:10:56

If you want to help, I wouldn't do the mime.

0:10:560:10:58

LAUGHTER

0:10:580:10:59

Sit on your stool.

0:10:590:11:01

It's an individual question, of course...

0:11:020:11:04

LAUGHTER

0:11:040:11:05

-Any ideas?

-Pigeon.

0:11:070:11:09

LAUGHTER

0:11:090:11:11

-What?

-No pigeons or stools involved in this one.

0:11:110:11:14

I'm A Wonderful Thing, Baby.

0:11:140:11:16

Oh!

0:11:160:11:17

OK. Over to Leee's team.

0:11:180:11:20

Leee, your intro coming up. Here it is.

0:11:200:11:23

UPBEAT DRUMS AND GUITAR RIFF

0:11:310:11:34

# I wanna reach out and grab ya. #

0:11:340:11:35

That's it? That's it?

0:11:350:11:36

AUDIENCE: Yeah.

0:11:360:11:38

-It is, it is.

-By?

-Steve...

-Steve Miller.

-Miller.

0:11:380:11:41

OK, and just tell me the title of the track.

0:11:410:11:44

And we need a long version there.

0:11:440:11:45

Abracadabra.

0:11:450:11:46

Is the right answer for the points, yes. Well done.

0:11:460:11:49

APPLAUSE

0:11:490:11:50

All right. So, finally in this round, over to Toyah.

0:11:520:11:54

Toyah, here comes yours.

0:11:540:11:56

DISCO DRUMS AND SYNTH RIFF

0:11:560:11:58

Is it Eddie Grant? Electric Avenue?

0:12:060:12:09

It is!

0:12:090:12:11

APPLAUSE

0:12:110:12:12

So, the end of that round, Andy, Toyah and Steve are on three,

0:12:140:12:18

and Mari, Leee and Tom are on four.

0:12:180:12:20

APPLAUSE

0:12:200:12:21

# Pop quiz! #

0:12:220:12:24

Now time to look at some more famous faces

0:12:240:12:26

for the game we call Face Swap.

0:12:260:12:27

In this round, you need to work as a team this time.

0:12:270:12:30

I'm going to show you a face made up of three different '80s artists.

0:12:300:12:33

You get a point for each person you can identify.

0:12:330:12:36

Leee's team, here comes your face.

0:12:360:12:38

-There we are.

-OK.

-A rather attractive face. Who is it?

0:12:400:12:43

Look at the top part, look at the hair.

0:12:430:12:46

There's a 'tache there, as well.

0:12:460:12:48

The eyes may be a clue.

0:12:480:12:50

We're thinking the hair is David Bowie, aren't we?

0:12:500:12:52

Is David Bowie.

0:12:520:12:53

Annie Lennox, and Lionel Ritchie.

0:12:530:12:56

Let's have a look at the hair, and see whether it is David Bowie.

0:12:560:12:59

-Ah, yes.

-Yes, it is.

0:12:590:13:01

APPLAUSE

0:13:010:13:03

It's tricky, cos he had so many hairstyles, really, didn't he?

0:13:030:13:06

So, number two, you're going for...?

0:13:060:13:08

-Annie Lennox.

-Annie Lennox.

0:13:080:13:10

Let's have a look and see whether they are indeed Annie Lennox's eyes.

0:13:100:13:13

-Hooray!

-Yes.

0:13:130:13:14

APPLAUSE

0:13:140:13:16

And the chin, whose chin?

0:13:170:13:19

Lionel Richie.

0:13:190:13:21

Yes, it is. APPLAUSE

0:13:230:13:24

-Yeah!

-Well done.

0:13:240:13:26

What a group that would have made! So you get all the points.

0:13:280:13:31

Fantastic.

0:13:310:13:32

Are you ready, Toyah's team,

0:13:320:13:34

to take a look at your fabulous '80s college?

0:13:340:13:37

-Not related to any of you, this person, I don't think.

-Oh, my!

0:13:370:13:39

-Oh, God.

-It looks like a very ugly woman, at this point.

0:13:410:13:45

-It could be a lady or a bloke.

-A bloke, absolutely.

0:13:450:13:47

-It could be...

-With that little flick fringe,

0:13:470:13:49

-you really believe that would be a bloke?

-There's a guy in there.

0:13:490:13:52

It's not Kim Wilde, is it? No. It's not Kim Wilde's hair?

0:13:520:13:54

-Oh.

-She doesn't have that tattoo, that's for sure.

-No.

0:13:540:13:56

No, just the hair.

0:13:560:13:58

OK, so we could have Kim Wilde,

0:13:580:14:01

we could have... Who's that lovely Welsh singer that...

0:14:010:14:04

-Bonnie Tyler?

-Bonnie Tyler.

0:14:040:14:06

I think it may be more Bonnie than Kim.

0:14:060:14:07

I think it's more Bonnie, cos Kim was really...

0:14:070:14:09

I've heard the name bandied around.

0:14:090:14:11

Kim was platinum blonde and incredibly sexy,

0:14:110:14:13

and Bonnie was a little bit more family, so shall we go for Bonnie?

0:14:130:14:17

You're saying Bonnie Tyler?

0:14:170:14:18

-Yes.

-Let's have a look.

0:14:180:14:19

Ohhh!

0:14:200:14:21

-Well played, excellent.

-Well done.

-APPLAUSE

0:14:210:14:23

Excellent. Well done. OK.

0:14:230:14:27

It is Bonnie Tyler's hair, indeed. Now, the eyes, the eyes.

0:14:270:14:30

What do we think about the eyes?

0:14:300:14:32

I think that's Kevin Rowland, Dexys Midnight Runners.

0:14:320:14:35

You think Kevin Rowland's eyes?

0:14:350:14:36

-OK.

-OK, let's have a look.

0:14:360:14:38

Oh, no!

0:14:410:14:43

-Oh, my God.

-No! No, come on.

0:14:430:14:47

Oh. Well-known Dexys frontman Simon Le Bon!

0:14:470:14:50

How could you make Simon Le Bon's eyes so unsexy?

0:14:500:14:54

LAUGHTER

0:14:540:14:55

-You did on purpose, didn't you?

-Just put Bonnie Tyler's wig on him!

0:14:550:14:58

LAUGHTER

0:14:580:14:59

And this other person's chin underneath, and their mouth.

0:15:000:15:03

Can we just go for the tattoo?

0:15:030:15:05

We've got a much better chance with the tattoo.

0:15:050:15:07

-That's...

-Well, the tattoo might give you a clue.

-Oh!

0:15:070:15:09

-It's Billy Idol.

-BOTH: Billy Idol!

0:15:090:15:11

That's it. The tat. It's his tat.

0:15:110:15:12

Let's have a look. Is it, in fact, Billy Idol?

0:15:120:15:14

It's his tat, yeah.

0:15:140:15:15

-Result!

-Yeah!

-Well done.

0:15:160:15:18

APPLAUSE

0:15:180:15:19

Salvaged. Well done.

0:15:190:15:21

OK, into Round Three we go.

0:15:340:15:35

As well as being a great era musically,

0:15:350:15:37

the '80s also produced some amazing lyrics.

0:15:370:15:39

Who can forget those great words

0:15:390:15:41

that could have been written by Shakespeare himself,

0:15:410:15:43

"Agadoo, doo, doo, shake pineapple..."

0:15:430:15:45

whatever it was? LAUGHTER

0:15:450:15:46

Quite simply, in this round, I'm going to show you some lyrics.

0:15:460:15:49

All you have to do is name the song.

0:15:490:15:50

You get two points for a right answer.

0:15:500:15:52

If you're struggling, you can ask for a clue,

0:15:520:15:53

but it will cost you a point.

0:15:530:15:55

Tom, time to word up, as they said in Cameo. Take a look at this.

0:15:550:15:58

I'm lost on this one.

0:16:040:16:06

Can I take a clue?

0:16:070:16:08

-It will cost your point if I give you a clue.

-Let's go for a clue.

0:16:100:16:12

A clue. OK.

0:16:120:16:13

I once auctioned something conical of hers.

0:16:130:16:16

LAUGHTER

0:16:160:16:17

Oh, it's a she.

0:16:170:16:18

-Madonna. Madonna.

-It is Madonna.

-The track?

0:16:180:16:20

Don't preach, Papa Don't Preach.

0:16:220:16:24

For some reason, just thought of Papa Don't Preach.

0:16:240:16:26

Papa Don't Preach is the right answer.

0:16:260:16:28

APPLAUSE

0:16:280:16:29

# But my friends keep telling me to give it up

0:16:330:16:37

Amazing. All that musicality,

0:16:370:16:38

I mention a conical bra, and they get it.

0:16:380:16:40

LAUGHTER

0:16:400:16:41

Extraordinary. Right. OK, Andy, here come your lyrics.

0:16:410:16:44

Would you like to marry me?

0:16:440:16:45

And if you like, you can buy the ring.

0:16:450:16:47

Would you like to marry me? And if you like,

0:16:490:16:50

-you can buy the ring.

-Do you want a clue? Cost you a point.

0:16:500:16:53

I'm going to have to have a clue, yeah.

0:16:530:16:54

OK. The front man has been on this programme.

0:16:540:16:56

Oh, that really narrows it down(!)

0:16:580:16:59

If somebody were to tell me was Nick Heyward, I'd say Nick Heyward,

0:16:590:17:02

but I don't think it is.

0:17:020:17:04

-No, it was the Smiths, and William, It Was Really Nothing.

-Oh!

0:17:040:17:07

# Would you like to marry me?

0:17:070:17:10

# And if you like, you can buy the ring. #

LAUGHTER

0:17:220:17:23

I bought it in Primrose Hill from a bloke from Brazil.

0:17:230:17:27

It's the metre. I'm reading it in a different metre there.

0:17:270:17:30

If I read it in the right metre, you'd get it.

0:17:300:17:32

I think we'll have to go for a clue, yeah, yeah.

0:17:320:17:35

I'll put the stress in it.

0:17:350:17:36

I bought it in Primrose Hill, from a bloke from Brazil.

0:17:360:17:39

Ha-ha ha-ha.

0:17:390:17:41

It's difficult to say without singing it.

0:17:430:17:44

Is it... Is it Madness?

0:17:440:17:46

There is a clue in the title, of course.

0:20:410:20:42

I'm going to show each team a compilation of three music videos

0:20:420:20:45

that all charted in the same year.

0:20:450:20:48

When you've seen the compilation,

0:20:480:20:49

I want to know the name of each track and the year,

0:20:490:20:52

starting with Leee's team.

0:20:520:20:53

Three songs, point for each, and a point for the year.

Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic, by The Police.

0:21:160:21:18

Spot on, Tom, yes, it is. Well done.

0:21:180:21:20

There they are in Montserrat.

0:21:200:21:22

And the second might have been Siouxsie singing Christine.

0:21:220:21:27

No, do you want to go for the third one?

0:21:270:21:29

Tweets.

0:21:290:21:31

-The Birdie Song.

-The Birdie Song.

-It's only the songs we want.

0:21:320:21:35

-It's the Birdie Song.

-Yes, the Birdie Song, yeah.

0:21:350:21:37

-The Birdie Song is the third one.

-She said, so proudly!

0:21:370:21:39

-"The Birdie Song, I know!"

-LAUGHTER

0:21:390:21:41

-"I know my stuff!"

-You bought it!

LAUGHTER

0:21:420:21:44

So we have two out of three, there.

0:21:440:21:47

-The second one, I can tell you, was Spellbound.

-Spellbound.

0:21:470:21:50

Siouxsie And The Banshees, Spellbound.

0:21:500:21:51

But what was the year? So you got two points.

0:21:510:21:53

For a third point, what was the year?

0:21:530:21:55

-'81.

-81 is spot on, Leeee. Well done.

0:21:550:21:56

-APPLAUSE

-Where did you get that?

0:21:560:21:58

-I was on Top Of The Pops with them.

-Well done.

0:21:580:22:00

You know that because that was the year the Birdie Song came out?

0:22:010:22:04

No, because we were on Top Of The Pops with Siouxsie!

0:22:040:22:06

Boom-boom!

0:22:070:22:09

So, to Toyah's team. Your compilation, three songs.

0:22:090:22:12

# Oh oh-oh oh-oh ohhh oh-ohhh

0:22:130:22:17

# Oh oh-oh oh-oh ohhh... #

# Needless to say

0:22:190:22:21

# I'm odds and ends

0:22:210:22:23

# But I'll be... #

0:22:230:22:25

# Oh, how you brought me down

0:22:250:22:29

# Down, down... #

0:22:290:22:30

-OK.

-We've got two. We've got two. We just don't know the first one.

0:22:300:22:33

-Well, we got the last one. Frankie.

-You've got...?

0:22:330:22:36

Frankie, the last video...

0:22:360:22:38

-OK.

-..as a song.

0:22:380:22:40

The first one, I'm clueless. Did you have anything?

0:22:400:22:43

-No, I have no idea.

-No idea.

0:22:430:22:46

-The middle one... A-ha.

-Take On Me.

-Take On Me.

0:22:460:22:51

OK. The first one you didn't get is Tarzan Boy, Baltimora.

0:22:510:22:54

-Did you know that?

-OK.

-Sorry, Tarzan Boy.

0:22:540:22:56

A big Roadshow favourite, that one.

0:22:560:22:59

The second one you did get,

0:22:590:23:01

which was A-ha - Take On Me, of course.

0:23:010:23:03

The third one... Absolutely right again.

0:23:030:23:05

Frankie, Sister Sledge.

0:23:050:23:07

OK, so, for the final point, the year.

0:23:070:23:10

Do you think it's '84 rather than '83?

0:23:100:23:12

Well, it's definitely middle '80s, not early. But... '83 or '84.

0:23:120:23:16

-You want to toss a coin?

-Eh...

0:23:160:23:17

How "mid" are you going to go?

0:23:170:23:19

-'84.

-'84, then.

-The boss says '84.

-We're going to try '84.

0:23:190:23:23

-You should have gone more mid. It's '85, but very close.

-Oh!

0:23:230:23:26

Very close. So, at the end of that round,

0:23:260:23:28

we have Andy, Toyah and Steve -

You need to tell me the name of the album and the group who released it.

0:23:410:23:45

I'm going to show you a very small section for three points.

0:23:450:23:47

Enlarge it even more, you're down to one point.

So here comes your small bit.

0:23:530:23:55

OK, so this is Leee's team.

0:23:560:23:59

There's an ear for you and an earring.

0:23:590:24:02

Do you think you know it for three points?

0:24:040:24:06

-You want the album title?

-You need the title as well.

0:24:060:24:10

THEY WHISPER

0:24:100:24:12

You lose everything if you give a wrong answer to the album title,

0:24:120:24:15

so be very careful.

0:24:150:24:17

OK, I think you know who it is, but what's the title?

0:24:190:24:22

-It's Wham!, definitely.

-Yeah, I need both.

0:24:220:24:25

-You need the artist and the album.

-Young Guns?

0:24:250:24:27

-Go for it.

-Young Guns?

0:24:270:24:29

OK.

0:24:290:24:30

Or I can expand it for you.

0:24:300:24:32

It's not going to change your life, but, I mean, you know...

0:24:340:24:36

LAUGHTER

0:24:360:24:39

Oh, it's... Um...

0:24:390:24:41

No. Er...

0:24:410:24:43

-Young Guns...

-Go for it.

-Go for it.

-Young Guns Go For It.

0:24:430:24:48

Is that the one you're saying?

0:24:480:24:50

-Shall we go for it?

-You're the boss.

0:24:500:24:52

You're saying it's Wham!, and you're saying...

0:24:520:24:54

Young Guns Go For It.

0:24:540:24:56

You're not right. Let's reveal it. Let's have a look.

0:24:560:24:59

It is actually Wham!...

0:24:590:25:01

Fantastic.

0:25:010:25:02

It's like a second-hand vinyl store here. There we are. There it is.

0:25:020:25:05

Wham! and Fantastic.

0:25:050:25:07

OK. We'll be selling these afterwards, of course.

0:25:070:25:09

Right, over to Toyah's team for your little bit of an album,

0:25:090:25:14

and here it comes.

0:25:140:25:15

Three points if you get it on this.

0:25:150:25:17

Oh, my goodness!

0:25:170:25:19

You had an ear on the last one. You've got an eye on this one.

0:25:190:25:22

-Oh, oh, oh!

-Yes!

0:25:220:25:24

This brilliant young man has got it.

0:25:240:25:27

Yeah. I think we should go all in and crash or burn.

0:25:270:25:30

Human League - Dare.

0:25:300:25:32

-You're saying The Human League and Dare.

-Yeah.

0:25:320:25:34

Let's have a look, see if it is.

0:25:340:25:36

Indeed it is. Well done. Well done, yes.

0:25:360:25:38

APPLAUSE

0:25:380:25:40

And here it is.

0:25:400:25:42

Thank you very much indeed.

0:25:470:25:48

Here's the Quickfire Round.

0:26:040:26:05

International rules of TV state

0:26:050:26:07

that, to increase the dynamic tension,

0:26:070:26:09

the studio lights have to be dimmed rather, so we'll do that.

0:26:090:26:12

-I hope you can all still see. AUDIENCE:

-Ooh!

0:26:120:26:14

Fingers on the buzzers. One point for a correct answer.

0:26:140:26:16

0:26:160:26:18

0:26:260:26:27

And, of course, they'll be buzzing

0:26:270:26:28

just to hear their own song being played. We know that.

0:26:280:26:31

Right, here we go, then. Fingers on the buzzers.

0:26:400:26:42

This...Charming Man?

0:26:420:26:44

That very subtle sound tells me that I'm out of time in the game

0:27:420:27:46

and that it's the end of the show.

0:27:460:27:47

I can tell you that, in the lead
