Title: Saturday Night Pop Quiz LIVE!
Post by: DrGreggles on October 31, 2020, 04:33:08 PM
I suggested this in General Bullshit yesterday, so I thought I'd give it its own thread to see if there would be much/any interest.

It would essentially be a CaB edition of the pop quiz I've been doing most Fridays over the past few months over Webex*.

I posted the rounds of a previous one here (https://www.cookdandbombd.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,79077.0.html) if you want to see what the format was like.

Anyway, who fancies it?

*yes, I know, but it works

Might be up for it.

How much hassle is Webex to install? I'm incredibly lazy and only have Zoom.

How hard is the quiz?
Title: Re: Saturday Night Pop Quiz LIVE!
Post by: DrGreggles on October 31, 2020, 06:20:01 PM
Not very. Assuming you've heard some pop music in the last 40 years.

Can't do tonight.  Definitely potential to make this your 'here comes quizzm' though.  And by that I mean the questions are too hard, the quizzes arrive late and you drop it after 3 episodes.

Yeah, thanks all. Was fun. Special thanks to Dr Greggles for his amazing big quiz compilation skills.

To celebrate, I thought I should share this clip, where the poetic beauty of the Inverness accent can be enjoyed in full, uttering the most beautiful saying, 'that's nae a baunk machine, it's a fence'.

Take it from me Janie, I know very little else about any other subject. i just wanted to prove I actually exist as I've never taken part in any other CaB thing before. Enjoyed it though. And lovely to actually see that some of you actually exist as well. Soz for buggering off from the Zoom thing so soon but I really did need a dump.

Music was the only winner, Jockice, as always (although we had to sit through some rubbish like The Fall before we got to 2 Unlimited and Patrick Swayze).

We just assumed you'd found something more exciting to do with your Saturday evening.

It wasn't the winning that counted, it was the taking part.

Not sure if there's any interest in doing this tonight, but I've fucked off Adobe Connect (too many audio problems) and have a new platform which will be 100% web-based.
Whether it'll solve the issues on mobile devices, we'll have to see.
Otherwise I'll be crawling back to WebEx cap-in-hand...

Yes, it was that master of Desolation, chicory. Resoundingly. It was a brilliant quiz and even those of us who languish in SECOND last place (yes!) thoroughly enjoy it. Our awed gratitude to erudite and thoughtful quizmaster Dr Greggles cannot be overstated.

It won't be this Saturday BTW, for 2 reasons:

From another thread it appears the last pandemic pop quiz had a special guest, the one and only SARS-CoV-2.  Feels sort of like when the artist would come out on Jukebox Jury.

Hope you're feeling better now Dr G.

I've analysed the lyrics to all three songs, with a tab open for each so I could cross reference because I've got nothing better to do with my Sunday. Nothing! This is one humdinger of a Teatime Themetime, Janie.

What is the link?  It's lyrical.

OK then, What do Squeeze and Pulp have in common in the lyrics for two of their biggest hits? Lest we forget that both bands had two singles that got to number two, so it's one of them. For each band. Might be a bit too obvious but I've caught people out with it before.
Title: Re: Saturday Night Pop Quiz LIVE!

And, for added trickiness, both of Pulp's #2 hits were double A-sides!

Post by: Jockice on March 09, 2021, 08:10:22 AM
Due to the complete lack of interest in the answer I'm going to tell you anyway. It's that both bands had to do radio edits (of Cool For Cats and Mis-Shapes) to remove the word 'bleeding.' The former had it replaced with 'funny how the missus always looks the blooming same' and the latter with 'cos you're so very thick.'

Just watched the Top Of The Pops performances of both songs. Squeeze did the changed version, Pulp the original. But it was a good few years later. Just shows how times change.

And even later of course, Leona Lewis's Cunting Love topped the charts worldwide.
Title: Re: Saturday Night Pop Quiz LIVE!
Post by: Janie Jones on March 09, 2021, 12:32:01 PM
I WAS STILL PONDERING actually, but TBH I'd never have got it because I've never heard the censored version of either, or if I have I haven't clocked it and just autofilled with 'bleeding'.

I like these. Any more?

Meanwhile, name the two bands who in the same year released songs that mentioned pregnant women from a certain city by name.

Janie should think herself lucky. I've got sodding Spagna in my head now. It was also on Pick Of The Pops this afternoon. Gambo and Dr Greggles have teamed up to haunt my dreams with fright-wigged Italian women.

And on that note I'm off to bed. Thanks for a fun evening everyone. Call me. Call me. Do do do it. If you want. But the phone's firmly off.
