Know the Naomi song well enough but not familiar with Silver String one ..must be the H10 song.


Koh Daisy
A7, B3, C5, D9, E6, F8, G1, J4...Haven’t heard of H and I so it’s a guess based on song title I2 and H10😀

Stephen Han

WOW, Daisy and Stephen, bravo. You are both experts in your field of 50s pops. I am more in Daisy's category and not too familiar with local pops [surprise] but Stephen takes the cake with an all correct answer. thanks to Daisy and Stephen. Others listen to some of these songs. They are GOLDEN POP CLASSICS.

Andy Young
To be honest Irene Yap and Tan Tee Peng scored earlier but missed on two each, So overall winner is STEPHEN HAN. Thanks guys. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2F4FiTm-YDk

Thanks all for quick participation.
I think I have to make these quizzes more difficult
There are very dedicated people who are well-versed with local and overseas pops.
Enjoyed it much.

PLEASE JUST TRY THE QUIZ FOR FUN.
DON'T CHECK THE ANSWERS UNTIL LATER.

Except for CHEE CHEE OOH CHEE and DARK MOON
the rest are familiar songs to me.
Sang some and musicians I've worked with sang them too.

Thanks Irene.
You got all correct except the two you mentioned
since you're not familiar with them.
Thanks for being so sporty.
Appreciate all the other readers who gave their answers.
Thank you all very much.

Perhaps, Andy, you should have announced or confirmed the results in 4 or 5 days late, i.e. not the next day. This will give more readers a chance to try out the quiz. Just a suggestion only. Btw, I got low score for the quiz as I was too young then to know old songs' lyrics unless the songs are very very popular ones ! Cheers !

Hi FL
First my apologies for the late reply.
The computer's been acting up again.

Second, yes you are right.
The answers came too early because
I thought it was tough for many.

Third, thanks for your enthusiasm
and concern; I appreciate that you
made these suggestions.

We shall have another quiz soon,
this time it would be around the
Cliff Richard and Bee Gees era.

Cheers FL and others on this page reading.
