Sounds For Sunday Part Two


A little pop quiz for part two:

Three tracks by Martha Reeves And The Vandellas.

Dancing In The Street
In My Lonely Room
Hitch- Hike

Ok, Dancing In The Street inspired which classic rock tune/riff?
In My Lonely Street was ripped off by which Mod icon for one of his excellent b-sides? And name the song...
And finally the Rolling Stones cover of Marvin Gaye's version of Hitch-Hike inspired which 80s Indie anthem?

I'd go wiv PM on the Weller front.

I'm suprisingly adept on Grand National winners since '69.

Me and Mrs H have just done quite well on that smartarse BBC4 Victoria Coren Connections thing, mostly because we knows our potatoes, US time zones and precious stones.

*Cough* Light and bitter?
