Ok Andrew.

The first single we're looking for is by a solo artist, but he doesn't sing.

The 2nd one is by a group.

Their lyrics commence with the title of the first one.

Can't make it much easier than that !

Is the first one an instrumental?

Telly Savalas - If

Was followed by the Bay City Rollers with Bye Bye Baby, according to a website i found. Obviously i'm not au fait with their work - does it start with 'If'???

That's it !

The Bay City Rollers' Bye Bye Baby starts with the immortal words:

"If you hate me after what I say"

It replaced Telly Savalas' If at No.1 in March, 1975.

Well done even if you did need a few clues !

I did warn that it was 'a bit of a cheat'

And it was only a 'bonus' item, not a 'proper' Trivia Quiz question.

Another Tivia Quiz soon !

You think that's uncanny!


When Duran Duran had a #1 hit with "Rio"
my cousins stopped by to watch Blame It On Rio
and one was wearing an REO Speedwagon t-shirt
