CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:290:00:32

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

0:00:370:00:41

Yes, you've all been frozen in time, as you can see.

0:00:410:00:44

Smaller hair, no shoulder pads,

0:00:440:00:46

probably no more idea about the answers

0:00:460:00:48

than we had back in the day either.

0:00:480:00:49

The first episode of Pop Quiz was broadcast at 6.15, Saturday,

0:00:490:00:53

4th of July, 1981,

0:00:530:00:56

and featured one of tonight's guests.

0:00:560:00:58

35 years later, and the show is back for a special '80s edition.

0:00:580:01:02

Tonight we're fielding six pop icons, some of the most

0:01:020:01:05

memorable musicians from an era that defined a generation.

0:01:050:01:09

They're still touring, they're still recording,

0:01:090:01:11

and they're still doing Pop Quiz, so let's meet them.

0:01:110:01:13

From Haircut 100, it's Nick Heyward.

0:01:130:01:16

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:01:160:01:18

And from Bucks Fizz, Cheryl Baker.

0:01:180:01:20

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:01:200:01:22

And sandwiched between them, one half of soul/funk duo Linx,

0:01:220:01:25

their skipper, David Grant.

0:01:250:01:27

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:01:270:01:29

Let's have a look at them in all their '80s glory.

0:01:290:01:31

# Fantastic day today

0:01:310:01:38

# Fantastic day... #

0:01:380:01:42

# Run for the sun, little one

0:01:420:01:46

# You're an outlaw once again

0:01:460:01:48

# Time to change, Superman

0:01:480:01:51

# He'll be with us while he can... #

0:01:510:01:54

# Intuition

0:01:540:01:56

# Intuition

0:01:580:02:00

# Intuition... #

0:02:010:02:03

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:030:02:06

They've barely changed.

0:02:060:02:07

I remember Duran Duran flying in to do Top Of The Pops once

0:02:070:02:10

in a helicopter, and landed at TV Centre.

0:02:100:02:12

You wouldn't be allowed to do that now,

0:02:120:02:14

but, Nick, I think you came to Top Of The Pops once in an aeroplane.

0:02:140:02:17

Yeah, they said, "We're going to have to fly you to Top Of The Pops."

0:02:170:02:20

So, we thought, "Private jet," you know.

0:02:200:02:23

And we got there, and there was, like, seven of us, and we all...

0:02:230:02:26

And it was like a Cessna, one of those little four-seater things,

0:02:260:02:30

and the pilot was, erm...

0:02:300:02:33

Well, he was drunk.

0:02:330:02:34

No other word for it, and he had a bottle of Scotch down by his feet,

0:02:350:02:38

and he was swigging Scotch, and I remember thinking,

0:02:380:02:41

"This is not what I'd expected, really."

0:02:410:02:44

The private jet, the glamour...

0:02:440:02:46

Cheryl, a few acrobatics from you there,

0:02:460:02:49

but you once played the part of a fairy.

0:02:490:02:51

That's not Nick, no, that's you, definitely. Er, yes.

0:02:510:02:54

Was that just for fun or a fancy dress party?

0:02:540:02:56

No. Do you know, the BBC used to have a costume department, and they

0:02:560:03:00

made our costumes, made that for me, and said, "So you want to fly?

0:03:000:03:03

"D'you you want us to put you on wires for Land Of Make Believe?"

0:03:030:03:06

And I went, "Yes!" So they did. I thought it was hilarious.

0:03:060:03:10

I was doing the routine in the air, I loved it.

0:03:100:03:12

It was just in the glory days of the BBC.

0:03:120:03:15

Did you test the wires first, just to make sure?

0:03:150:03:17

I shouldn't think so for a minute, no!

0:03:170:03:20

David, you've been on before and you were on with a legend.

0:03:200:03:23

I was. I remember the very first time I did Pop Quiz.

0:03:230:03:26

You know, I'd had a few hits and met a few people, and there I was,

0:03:260:03:29

walking into the studio, and Cliff Richard bumped into me!

0:03:290:03:33

I was like, "Hello!" And he went, "Hi!"

0:03:330:03:35

It was like, "Whoa! This is Cliff Richard!"

0:03:370:03:39

And then I thought, "I wonder if I'll see him again,"

0:03:390:03:42

and they sat me beside him.

0:03:420:03:43

So I was trying to be really cool, like...

0:03:430:03:46

Cos I'd been watching him since I was born, you know,

0:03:460:03:48

it's like, Cliff Richard, and it was just amazing.

0:03:480:03:50

-Well, look at your face.

-Yes, I am looking kind of like...

0:03:500:03:53

"That's Cliff Richard!"

0:03:530:03:55

-And Rick Parfitt!

-He looks like he's beating Rick Parfitt up there!

0:03:560:04:00

"Take that, Rick!"

0:04:000:04:02

-Kung fu on Rick.

-"Leave David Grant alone!"

0:04:020:04:04

And their opponents are a triple whammy of '80s superstars.

0:04:040:04:07

We have, from The Beat, Ranking Roger.

0:04:070:04:09

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:04:090:04:11

And squaring up against her

0:04:110:04:13

band-mate from Bucks Fizz is Jay Aston.

0:04:130:04:15

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:04:150:04:16

And between them, holding the team together, is their team captain,

0:04:160:04:19

from T'Pau, Carol Decker.

0:04:190:04:20

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:04:200:04:22

And let's have a look at them from the archives as we go down

0:04:220:04:25

Memory Lane to the 1980s.

0:04:250:04:27

# The mirror in the bathroom I just can't stop it

0:04:270:04:30

# Every Saturday you see me window shopping

0:04:300:04:33

# Find no interest in the racks and shelves

0:04:330:04:35

# Just 10,000 reflections of my own sweet self, self, self, self... #

0:04:350:04:40

# You gotta turn it off

0:04:400:04:42

# And then you gotta pull it out

0:04:420:04:45

# You gotta be sure that it's something

0:04:450:04:47

# Everybody's going to talk about... #

0:04:470:04:50

# Don't push too far

0:04:510:04:53

# Your dreams are china in your hand

0:04:530:04:56

# Don't wish too hard because they may come true

0:04:580:05:02

# And you can't help them... #

0:05:020:05:05

APPLAUSE

0:05:050:05:06

You've got to admit it, a few classics there, and Roger,

0:05:060:05:09

you did that, I remember, at a very famous club, didn't you, that video?

0:05:090:05:12

We did, we did it in a club in Birmingham called The Rum Runner,

0:05:120:05:15

and it belonged to Duran Duran, believe it or not,

0:05:150:05:18

and we were kind of arch enemies at the time because they were

0:05:180:05:21

the New Romantics, if you like, and we were the ska stars,

0:05:210:05:25

or "ska-sters," and they put us out of business, but anyway,

0:05:250:05:28

you know, we used their nightclub to make the video and it was a classic.

0:05:280:05:32

Jay, your skirt-ripping thing, was that an accident or was it a

0:05:320:05:35

commercial design, where they said, "That'll be a clever thing to do?"

0:05:350:05:38

We didn't design it. It was kind of a compromise.

0:05:380:05:41

Cheryl wanted to wear the long ones, long skirts, and I wanted the

0:05:410:05:44

mini-skirts, because I thought it would win us a few more points.

0:05:440:05:49

-And thank heavens for Velcro!

-Absolutely.

0:05:490:05:51

Well, it worked, whatever it was.

0:05:510:05:53

And, Carol, I mean, your name, T'Pau, came from Star Trek,

0:05:530:05:55

but surely you're not a Trekkie, are you?

0:05:550:05:57

Not a Trekkie, but I did sort of use to watch it if it was on,

0:05:570:06:01

and, er, we had the album, Bridge Of Spies, in the can,

0:06:010:06:04

but we didn't have a name for the band,

0:06:040:06:06

and every time we sat down to try and decide we could never agree.

0:06:060:06:10

So I heard this word in this episode,

0:06:100:06:12

"T'Pau, T'Pau, T'Pau," I really liked the word.

0:06:120:06:15

And it's the one the band hated the least,

0:06:150:06:17

and we were in a rush, so...

0:06:170:06:18

LAUGHTER

0:06:180:06:20

We have to point out that you have broken your arm,

0:06:200:06:23

so the arm wrestling round is going to be a real struggle for you.

0:06:230:06:26

I know! And I so would have won.

0:06:260:06:28

I so would have kicked everybody, but, you know, what can you say?

0:06:280:06:31

OK, Round One coming up, and it is the '80s.

0:06:310:06:33

As they say, if you remember it, you weren't there!

0:06:330:06:36

Of course, there are points, but there'll be also extra points

0:06:360:06:39

for sycophancy, bribery and corruption.

0:06:390:06:42

So, if everyone's ready,

0:06:420:06:43

let's put your '80s musical memories to the test.

0:06:430:06:45

Let's play Pop Quiz.

0:06:450:06:47

OK, we're kicking off with the Intros Round.

0:06:510:06:54

I'll play each of you the opening few seconds from an '80s hit.

0:06:540:06:56

Your job is to simply name the track

0:06:560:06:58

and the original artist for a point each.

0:06:580:07:00

Individual round, so no conferring, and, Nick, you are underway first.

0:07:000:07:05

OK, here comes yours.

0:07:050:07:07

FUNKY DISCO TRACK PLAYS

0:07:070:07:09

It sounds like me at home.

0:07:140:07:16

LAUGHTER

0:07:160:07:17

-It could be.

-Erm, I haven't got a clue!

0:07:170:07:19

-You probably heard it.

-I could sing over it, I could make something up,

0:07:190:07:23

it sounded like a good backing track. It was nice.

0:07:230:07:25

God, wow, what is that?

0:07:250:07:27

Yeah, anyone?

0:07:270:07:28

Is it D.I.S.C.O?

0:07:280:07:30

-By...?

-Can't remember!

0:07:300:07:32

Do we split the point, if you get the artist...?

0:07:320:07:34

-Go on, then.

-Ottawan.

0:07:340:07:36

Ottawan, OK, one point each. It's a good start.

0:07:360:07:39

I do not know that song. How weird that I don't know that!

0:07:390:07:43

Nobody will admit to dancing to it, of course.

0:07:430:07:46

We go over to the other team now, and Ranking Roger, here's yours.

0:07:460:07:50

SYNTH POP TRACK PLAYS

0:07:500:07:52

Sounds like Soft Cell, but I know it's not.

0:07:580:08:01

You've probably danced to it a few times.

0:08:010:08:03

I can't say that I know that one, who it is.

0:08:030:08:06

-OK, we'll whizz it over. Anybody? Bonus point?

-Yazoo?

0:08:060:08:09

And?

0:08:090:08:10

-# Ding-ding-ding-ding-ding-ding. #

-# We all need... #

-Divine Inspiration?

-Divine Inspiration?

0:08:140:08:16

-No.

-Ah!

0:08:160:08:18

-Page In Your Diary?

-Nobody's Diary.

0:08:180:08:20

I'll give you another point each

0:08:200:08:22

just to get you settled in there, OK?

0:08:220:08:23

You can have a point each.

0:08:230:08:25

APPLAUSE

0:08:250:08:27

OK, back over to David's team, and, Cheryl, take a look at this.

0:08:280:08:31

PULSING SYNTHESIZER PLAYS

0:08:310:08:33

-Full of knowledge, bursting to get out, look, there it is.

-Shut up!

0:08:450:08:49

-You know them?

-Yeah.

0:08:490:08:51

Oh, it's "them." OK, it's not "him," then.

0:08:510:08:53

LAUGHTER

0:08:530:08:56

-Oh, blimey.

-Shall I give you a small clue?

-Yes, please!

0:08:560:08:58

It can be a large clue if you like.

0:08:580:09:00

You used to go for curries with them.

0:09:000:09:03

Not that you remember that, of course!

0:09:030:09:05

I'm going to throw it over. Oh, you're looking confident.

0:09:070:09:10

Well, I know the band, but I can't actually remember the song.

0:09:100:09:14

-Human League.

-It is the Human League.

-Course it is!

0:09:140:09:16

-Did you or did you not go for curries with them?

-Yeah, we did.

0:09:160:09:19

-But Nick knows the song.

-Oh, do I?

0:09:190:09:21

LAUGHTER

0:09:210:09:23

-What's the song?

-Love Action.

-Love Action.

0:09:230:09:25

Love Action, OK. Point each, then.

0:09:250:09:28

APPLAUSE

0:09:280:09:30

They're playing by their own rules, of course. Jay, here comes yours.

0:09:320:09:36

"Gosh, wish I'd got that one, Mike, and not Jay!"

0:09:450:09:48

Down Under.

0:09:480:09:50

-By...?

-Erm... Oh, my God, the Australian band.

0:09:500:09:54

I can skip the whole thing and just give you a point each!

0:09:540:09:56

Yeah, go on, cos we know who it's by!

0:09:560:09:59

-Yeah.

-Down Under. The...

0:09:590:10:01

-The...

-Something like work.

0:10:010:10:03

That's exactly it, you're close.

0:10:030:10:05

-Something work.

-Getting warmer.

0:10:050:10:07

-Go on, OK.

-Men At Work.

0:10:070:10:08

-Men At Work, sorry!

-OK, Men At Work.

0:10:080:10:10

APPLAUSE

0:10:100:10:13

Yeah, so it will be a point each, then.

0:10:130:10:15

LAUGHTER

0:10:150:10:17

-Snap!

-That's the way it goes. OK, David, here comes yours.

SKA MUSIC PLAYS

0:10:220:10:25

LAUGHTER

0:10:300:10:32

-Roger was like, "Why didn't he give that one to me?"

-Exactly, yeah.

0:10:330:10:36

-JAY:

-Oh, you know that?

-Oh, yeah.

0:10:360:10:38

Give me a clue. Go on, give me a clue.

0:10:380:10:40

I never had curry with him, did I?

0:10:400:10:42

OK. Well, you don't have to do anything to get the answer.

0:10:420:10:45

Oh!

0:10:450:10:47

-No. I know I'm going to be kicking myself.

-Black-and-white, really.

0:10:480:10:51

HE DRUMS HIS FINGERS

0:10:510:10:55

-No.

-Throw it over.

0:10:550:10:57

Do Nothing by The Specials.

0:10:570:10:58

Do Nothing by The Specials, bonus point, Roger. Very good.

0:10:580:11:01

Very good.

0:11:040:11:06

OK, Carol, here comes your specific question.

0:11:060:11:09

FUNK MUSIC PLAYS

0:11:090:11:12

Candy Girl.

0:11:200:11:21

-By? Yes.

-I want to say Jackson 5 or Michael Jackson.

0:11:210:11:24

No, the singer was married to somebody very famous, though.

0:11:240:11:28

# Candy girl! #

0:11:280:11:29

Throw it over for the band.

0:11:300:11:32

-New Edition.

-New Edition is right. One point each.

0:11:320:11:35

It won't always be like that.

0:11:390:11:41

At the end of that round, David's team on five, Carol's team on six.

0:11:410:11:45

-CAROL'S TEAM:

-Oh!

0:11:450:11:47

OK, round two is Face Swap.

0:11:510:11:53

No '80s pop quiz, of course, would be complete without

0:11:530:11:55

a look back at the great fashion of the time.

0:11:550:11:57

Eat your heart out, Ralph Lauren, we had Mr Byrite,

0:11:570:12:00

we had Man At C&A and we had...

0:12:000:12:02

Midge Ure.

0:12:020:12:04

LAUGHTER

0:12:040:12:07

Keeping one step ahead of the fashion police.

0:12:070:12:10

Or maybe one step behind, I don't know.

0:12:100:12:12

We're going on to round two, a team round.

0:12:120:12:14

We've all done it on our phones where you faceswapped.

0:12:140:12:16

We've done a sort of triple faith swap.

0:12:160:12:18

We're going to show a face made up of three different '80s artists.

0:12:180:12:21

You get a point for each person you can identify.

0:12:210:12:23

So there's a top bit, a middle bit and a bottom bit.

0:12:230:12:26

So, David's team, here is your '80s composite face.

0:12:260:12:30

Nick, Cheryl and David,

0:12:300:12:32

have a look at that very attractive person there.

0:12:320:12:35

Who do you think the hair might be for a start?

0:12:350:12:37

-The hair?

-The eyes are definitely Phil Collins.

-You think so?

0:12:370:12:40

-The eyes are who?

-Phil Collins.

0:12:400:12:41

He's very attractive.

0:12:410:12:43

I'm not an eye person, I'm a mouth person.

0:12:430:12:45

You think you might know the mouth?

0:12:450:12:47

We think the mouth is Morrissey.

0:12:470:12:49

-OK, you think you might have the mouth.

-Yeah.

0:12:490:12:51

OK, what about the rest of it?

0:12:510:12:53

-The hair!

-Any ideas?

0:12:530:12:54

It looks a bit like Jay Aston.

0:12:540:12:56

I beg your pardon!

0:12:560:12:58

LAUGHTER

0:12:580:13:00

Mine was bigger than that, darling.

0:13:000:13:03

-It is big hair.

-Oh, I know.

-Oh, it's not Tina Turner, is it?

0:13:030:13:06

-Yeah, Bonnie Tyler.

-That's Bonnie Tyler's hair.

0:13:060:13:08

-We think the hair's Bonnie Tyler.

-Bonnie Tyler's hair.

0:13:080:13:11

Let's have a look and see if it is in fact Bonnie Tyler's hair.

0:13:110:13:14

-THEY GROAN

-I said... I said Tina Turner.

0:13:140:13:16

-Did you?

-Oh, no.

-You didn't say it to us.

-I said Tina Turner.

0:13:160:13:19

-Didn't I say Tina Turner?

-You did.

0:13:190:13:20

-I did.

-It is Tina Turner in a Bonnie Tyler wig.

0:13:200:13:22

-But you should've said it to us!

-I said it to everyone, to the world.

0:13:220:13:26

OK, let's get on to the eyes then.

0:13:260:13:28

Nick is quite confident that they belong to Phil Collins.

0:13:280:13:31

Phil Collins. Let's have a look and see

0:13:310:13:33

whether they are in fact Phil Collins's eyes.

0:13:330:13:35

And Nick is right. Here it comes.

0:13:350:13:37

-Yeah!

-Come on!

0:13:370:13:40

Wow!

0:13:410:13:42

We think nose and mouth, Morrissey.

0:13:430:13:46

OK, let's see if it is Morrissey.

0:13:460:13:49

-Yes!

-Yes.

-Fantastic.

-Yes!

0:13:490:13:52

-Well done, you!

-I'm good on mouths.

-You are. You rocked it.

0:13:520:13:55

So two points out of three, well done. Well done.

0:13:550:13:58

OK, your face swap is coming up, Roger, Carol and Jay.

0:13:580:14:02

Top bit, middle bit and a bottom bit. Who is this '80s composite?

0:14:020:14:07

Very quite a wide face there.

0:14:070:14:09

-That is George Michael's eyes.

-OK.

0:14:090:14:11

-Any ideas?

-We know the mouth. Roger thinks he has got the eyes.

0:14:110:14:15

-The hair...

-You've got somebody?

0:14:150:14:16

I think the darkest haired in Bananarama was Keren.

0:14:160:14:20

You think you know for the hair?

0:14:200:14:21

-The eyes, what do you think?

-I know the mouth.

0:14:210:14:23

-You know the mouth.

-We know the mouth.

0:14:230:14:25

I think the eyes are George Michael's.

0:14:250:14:27

-Who do you think?

-George Michael.

-Let's go through them one by one.

0:14:270:14:30

-So the first bit, you think, for the hair?

-That hairdo...

0:14:300:14:33

-Lisa Stansfield, possibly?

-Possibly.

-You're going for what?

0:14:330:14:36

Possibly Lisa Stansfield for the hair?

0:14:360:14:38

-Van Halen?

-Lisa Stanfield!

0:14:380:14:40

Put your other ear piece in.

0:14:420:14:43

You're wrong either way. Let's have a look and see who the hair is.

0:14:430:14:47

-I know that hair, I can't....

-THEY GASP

0:14:470:14:49

-I would never have guessed that, cos I love Kate.

-It is Kate Bush.

0:14:490:14:52

Kate Bush, so no points there.

0:14:520:14:53

-You went, I think, Roger, George Michael for the eyes?

-Yes.

0:14:530:14:56

Are they George Michael's eyes?

0:14:560:14:59

-Yay.

-Yeah, George Michael's eyes.

-Well done.

0:14:590:15:01

Well done.

0:15:010:15:02

-You know the mouth?

-We know the mouth.

-Madonna.

-That's Madonna.

0:15:050:15:07

OK, Madonna's chin, Madonna's lips, Madonna's teeth.

0:15:070:15:09

-Know that beauty spot anywhere.

-Yeah.

0:15:090:15:11

Let's see whether... Yes.

0:15:110:15:13

Well done. At the end of that round,

0:15:150:15:17

David's team on seven points and Carol's team on eight points.

0:15:170:15:21

And now it's time for the famous lyric round,

0:15:250:15:27

the fence on which many famous have fallen in the past.

0:15:270:15:30

I'm going to show you some lyrics and you need to name the song.

0:15:300:15:33

Two points for a correct answer.

0:15:330:15:34

If you're struggling, I can give you a clue,

0:15:340:15:36

but it will cost you a point.

0:15:360:15:38

Nick, take a look at these lyrics.

0:15:380:15:40

-That's Madonna, isn't it?

-No, no, no...

-Oh, hold on, hold on.

0:15:470:15:50

And now you tell me you're having my baby,

0:15:500:15:52

I'll tell you that I'm happy if you want me to.

0:15:520:15:54

-Do you want a clue?

-I can sing it, but...

0:15:540:15:57

Well, sing it if you like. Yeah.

0:15:570:15:59

# And now you tell me that you're having my baby

0:15:590:16:02

# I'll tell you that...

0:16:020:16:03

# And I'll tell you that I'm happy if you want me to. #

0:16:030:16:06

-That is George.

-Yes.

-That's George Michael.

-Yeah.

0:16:060:16:09

Oh, no, Wham!

0:16:090:16:11

Yes, and the song?

0:16:110:16:12

-We're not conferring.

-I'll give you a clue, do you want a clue?

0:16:120:16:15

Yeah, OK, I'll have a clue.

0:16:150:16:16

It'll cost you a point, though.

0:16:160:16:18

Kept off number one by Band Aid in 1984.

0:16:180:16:20

Oh, Everything She Wants.

0:16:200:16:21

Yes. Is the right answer, well done.

0:16:210:16:23

-Everything She Wants.

-Yeah, yeah.

0:16:230:16:25

-That was a big clue.

-OK, let's have a listen to it.

0:16:250:16:28

# And now you tell me that you're having my baby

0:16:280:16:32

# I'll tell you that I'm happy if you want me to. #

0:16:320:16:36

-Sheer relief, ain't it? Sheer relief.

-Absolutely.

0:16:360:16:38

Fantastic. Let's go over to the other team.

0:16:380:16:40

How do you know the name of my new album?

0:16:400:16:42

And, Roger, here's your lyric.

0:16:420:16:44

Oh, what?! That sounds pretty real to me.

0:16:500:16:52

LAUGHTER

0:16:520:16:55

-Yep.

-I would like a bit of help on this one.

0:16:550:16:57

She's from a very famous musical family.

0:16:570:17:01

American musical family.

0:17:010:17:04

Janet Jackson.

0:17:040:17:05

Song? What's the song?

0:17:050:17:07

Your only on one point, because I gave you a clue.

0:17:090:17:11

They conferred a lot, I think we should be able to chat a bit.

0:17:110:17:15

-We didn't confer!

-We didn't confer!

0:17:150:17:17

We simply sang to one another gently.

0:17:170:17:19

A lot of whispering going on...

0:17:190:17:21

No, no. Gentle encouragement.

0:17:210:17:24

All very good, but, Roger, have you got a title?

0:17:240:17:26

-I haven't got a title, no.

-You haven't got a title, OK.

0:17:260:17:28

I will reveal all after we've heard it. Here it is.

0:17:280:17:31

# Now it seems your dancing feet

0:17:310:17:33

# Are always on my couch

0:17:330:17:35

# Good thing I cook or else we'd starve to death. #

0:17:350:17:38

What have you done for me lately?

0:17:380:17:40

# What have you done for me lately? #

0:17:400:17:42

Well mimed to you by David as well. Go on, give us a verse.

0:17:420:17:44

BOTH: # Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah. #

0:17:440:17:47

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:17:470:17:49

No extra points, but jolly good fun.

0:17:510:17:53

Right, Cheryl, here comes your lyric.

0:17:530:17:56

I know it, don't I? I do.

0:18:020:18:04

Of course I know it. What is it?

0:18:040:18:05

I find it kind of funny I find it kind of sad

0:18:050:18:08

The dreams in which I'm dying Are the best I've ever had.

0:18:080:18:10

SHE HUMS

0:18:100:18:12

Bad, Sad, Bad World. Bad World. World.

0:18:120:18:14

-Bad World. Sad World.

-What kind of world?

-Mad?

-Mad word.

0:18:140:18:17

-CAROL GASPS

-Mad World!

-What?

0:18:170:18:20

I know it rhymes with ad.

0:18:200:18:22

-Mad World.

-You're absolutely right, it is Mad World.

0:18:220:18:24

Did you see? Such a cheat!

0:18:240:18:26

# And I find it kind of funny

0:18:260:18:28

# I find it kind of sad

0:18:280:18:30

# The dreams in which I'm dying

0:18:300:18:32

# Are the best I've ever had. #

0:18:320:18:34

Struggling to two points there, Cheryl,

0:18:340:18:36

but you got there nevertheless.

0:18:360:18:38

OK, Jay, can you do as well? Here is your lyric.

0:18:380:18:40

Oh.

0:18:450:18:46

-Hm.

-Do you want a clue?

0:18:480:18:50

Yeah, I need a clue.

0:18:500:18:51

Went to number one when it was reissued.

0:18:510:18:54

-1991.

-Oh, dear.

0:18:540:18:56

Why can't I cheat like David Grant did?

0:18:560:18:58

-LAUGHTER

-Yeah, can we cheat like they did?

0:18:580:19:01

-Any ideas of the answer? No?

-I don't know it.

0:19:010:19:04

I'm going to have to tell you that it is this.

0:19:040:19:07

# It's always tease, tease, tease

0:19:070:19:09

# You're happy when I'm on my knees. #

0:19:110:19:14

There we are, Should I Stay Or Should I Go,

0:19:140:19:16

from The Clash.

0:19:160:19:17

Everyone is bursting to tell you the answer.

0:19:170:19:20

No points. Sorry about that. But, David, here comes yours.

0:19:200:19:23

We can't even cheat now, we don't know it.

0:19:260:19:29

# But if it wasn't for your misfortune... #

0:19:290:19:32

Anything stirring in there?

0:19:320:19:33

-No, nothing.

-Clue?

0:19:330:19:34

-Yes, please.

-OK, down to one point.

0:19:340:19:36

The clue - still the UK's biggest ever selling 12-inch single.

0:19:360:19:41

-HE GASPS

-Oh, that's got to be New Order.

0:19:410:19:44

Blue Monday.

0:19:440:19:46

Is the right answer.

0:19:460:19:47

# But if it wasn't for your misfortune

0:19:470:19:50

# I'd be a heavenly person today. #

0:19:500:19:54

So one point there with the clue - Blue Monday, New Order. Well done.

0:19:540:19:58

And, finally in this round, Carol, your lyric.

0:19:580:20:01

Well, that's got to be...

0:20:060:20:07

And I did a gig with her three weeks ago and I broke my arm...

0:20:070:20:12

-AUDIENCE:

-Aw!

-Bonnie Tyler.

0:20:120:20:14

-And the song?

-And...

0:20:140:20:16

I've forgotten the title!

0:20:160:20:18

No, you haven't. No, you haven't.

0:20:180:20:20

# Always in the dark, livin' in a powder keg, givin' off sparks... #

0:20:210:20:25

It's worth two points. SHE HUMS

0:20:250:20:27

# Nothing I can do Total eclipse of the heart! #

0:20:290:20:32

# I don't know what to do I'm always in the dark

0:20:320:20:35

# Livin' in a powder keg And giving off sparks. #

0:20:350:20:40

Total Eclipse Of The Heart, two points.

0:20:400:20:41

So, at the end of that round, it is a very, very close.

0:20:410:20:45

We have Roger and Carol and Jay on ten.

0:20:450:20:48

And we have Cheryl, and David, and Nick on 11.

0:20:480:20:50

Hey! Wahey!

0:20:500:20:52

And onto her fourth round, which is Which Year.

0:20:540:20:56

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

0:20:560:21:00

all charted in the same years.

0:21:000:21:02

Four points in all - one for each track and one for getting the year.

0:21:020:21:05

David, we start with your team. That's Cheryl, David and Nick.

0:21:050:21:07

Three songs for you. What's the year, what are the songs?

0:21:070:21:10

-# I want your love

-I want your love

0:21:100:21:13

-# Give me your love

-Give me your love

0:21:130:21:15

# That's how I feel... #

0:21:150:21:17

# Into the sea, you and me

0:21:170:21:19

# All these years and no-one heard

0:21:190:21:21

# I'll show you in spring It's a treacherous thing

0:21:210:21:24

# We missed you. #

0:21:240:21:26

# Modern medicine falls short of your complaints

0:21:260:21:30

# Oooh

0:21:300:21:32

# Try a little harder. #

0:21:320:21:34

-APPLAUSE

-Oh, what's the year?

0:21:340:21:36

Three good songs, we only need the songs. What is the first one?

0:21:360:21:39

-The last one...

-OK.

-Oh. The last one was Too Shy Shy,

0:21:390:21:42

-or Too Shy.

-Yeah.

0:21:420:21:43

-Lovecats.

-Yeah, Lovecats by The Cure.

0:21:430:21:46

And IOU by Freeez.

0:21:460:21:48

-So the year?

-1983.

0:21:480:21:51

Is the right answer - a full four points.

0:21:510:21:53

Well done. Roger, Carol and Jay, here comes yours.

0:21:570:22:00

You want the three tracks, and we'd like the year as well.

0:22:000:22:04

# I'll never know how good it feels

0:22:040:22:07

# To hold you

0:22:070:22:09

# Oh, no. #

0:22:090:22:10

# What she asked of me

0:22:100:22:12

# At the end of the day

0:22:120:22:15

# Caligula would have blushed. #

0:22:150:22:18

# Baby, baby, when I look at you

0:22:180:22:21

# I feel a warm feeling inside. #

0:22:210:22:24

I'd say it was about... I'd say '84.

0:22:270:22:30

They are got three good songs, one year,

0:22:300:22:32

so four points if you get them all.

0:22:320:22:34

-Nikita, Elton John.

-That's Morrissey.

0:22:340:22:37

Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now, The Smiths.

0:22:370:22:40

And I Feel For You, Chaka Khan.

0:22:400:22:42

Absolutely. What about the year?

0:22:420:22:44

1984.

0:22:440:22:46

1984...is right!

0:22:460:22:48

Four points.

0:22:480:22:49

Amazing. They were there and they still remember it.

0:22:520:22:55

LAUGHTER

0:22:550:22:57

So, Carol's team - that's Roger, Carol and Jay - on 14 points.

0:22:570:23:01

And Nick, Cheryl and David on 15 points.

0:23:010:23:03

OK, moving on to round five, which is Album Covers.

0:23:080:23:11

I'm going to show you some album covers, not the whole cover, just

0:23:110:23:14

a little bit. If you get the little bit, you get three points.

0:23:140:23:18

If I have to expand it, you get two points.

0:23:180:23:21

If I have to widen it completely, you get one point.

0:23:210:23:23

I need the album and I need the artist as well.

0:23:230:23:26

So, Cheryl, David and Nick, here is your little bit of album.

0:23:260:23:30

Three points if you get it just from that.

0:23:310:23:34

-Would that be Madonna?

-I don't know.

-Any idea who's those hands are?

0:23:340:23:37

We'll have another bit, if that's all right.

0:23:370:23:39

You'll have another bit. Two points if you get it from this.

0:23:390:23:42

We are widening. There's a bit of red hair there.

0:23:420:23:44

-And a bit of black down in the corner.

-Yes!

0:23:440:23:47

-It's...it's... Yeah, that's... Is it Sweet Dreams?

-Oh, yeah!

0:23:470:23:50

Not with her arm in that position, it's not.

0:23:500:23:52

Well, we think it's the Eurythmics,

0:23:520:23:55

and we're trying to remember whether the album is Sweet Dreams...

0:23:550:23:58

-Or?

-Or not.

0:23:580:24:00

LAUGHTER

0:24:000:24:02

I can take you down to one point if you want to see more.

0:24:040:24:07

Will the title of the album be on it if we see more?

0:24:070:24:10

-Not that much more.

-I can do that for no points.

0:24:100:24:14

What do you think? Do you want to go for one point

0:24:140:24:16

-and take it up a bit more?

-Let's see a bit more.

-OK.

0:24:160:24:19

Let's reveal a bit more, down to one point.

0:24:190:24:21

Yeah, so it's definitely the Eurythmics,

0:24:210:24:23

and we still don't know what it's called.

0:24:230:24:26

-Go for one.

-It's the Eurythmics, Sweet Dreams.

0:24:260:24:29

It's not. Do you know, just out of interest?

0:24:290:24:31

It's the Eurythmics, and I think it was called Touch.

0:24:310:24:34

It is called Touch. There it is.

0:24:350:24:37

-So, sadly, no points, but lots of revealing. It was very good.

-Yeah.

0:24:420:24:45

OK, Carol's team, here comes one for you.

0:24:450:24:48

Three points from this little bit, two points if I widen it,

0:24:480:24:51

-and one point...

-Oh, come on!

-..if I have to widen it greatly.

0:24:510:24:54

-That looks very strange.

-That's fog!

0:24:540:24:56

-It looks like it's been quite a nice day.

0:25:010:25:04

Do you want to go for two?

0:25:040:25:05

-I haven't got a clue, you?

-We're going to have to.

0:25:050:25:07

-Very, very difficult...

-Let's widen it for two points.

-..to see.

0:25:070:25:10

I think this may give it away. This little bit in the corner there.

0:25:100:25:13

Oh, yes!

0:25:130:25:14

-It's...

-Dire Straits.

0:25:200:25:22

One of the best selling albums of all time.

0:25:220:25:25

0:25:260:25:29

at the end of the round - Cheryl, David and Nick 15 points,

0:25:290:25:32

0:25:320:25:34

-We're back, we're back.

0:25:340:25:38

So it is time for the quick fire around.

0:25:390:25:41

So, to get the tension and the drama going, let's dip the studio lights

0:25:410:25:44

so you can't see your mobile phones to cheat.
