Doh.

I'm not going to feel too bad though I did start with 80 of the stupid clues and my knowledge of bands and singers is very limited.

Thanks, Clare

"Whats this for btw?" - MisterMickster

Every year church puts out a list of them to do for fun over the holidays.

Unfortunately it's the church where my parent's live and I go back to Durham tonight so I'll never get the answers and I hate not knowing.

Even when the answers are things I've never heard of Womback and Womback???? or Cockney Rebel?????

Last years was great famous books and the year before movies much better when it's on things I actually pay some attention to!

Love the Womack and Womack clue!

Thanks to everyone for all their help.

Love the Womack and Womack one. Would never have thought of that.
