Their third record to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 was "Hey Hey Bunny" which peaked at number 57 in 1968. That alas, was it chartwise for John Fred & His Playboy Band.

2. Which four lads sang these words? "I'll give you all I've got to give If you say you love me too"

From Quiz Whose Line Was It Anyway: UK Groups of the '60s.

Answer: The Beatles

The Beatles sang "Can't Buy Me Love". It was number one for three weeks on the UK Singles Chart for The Beatles in 1964. It was number one for five weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 the same year.

3. Which English band has been at the forefront of the funk scene with such hit albums as 'Emergency on Planet Earth' (1993), 'Travelling Without Moving' (1996) and 'A Funk Odyssey' (2001)?

From Quiz The Ballistic Sheep Band Together

Answer: Jamiroquai

Since soaring to the dizzying heights of number one on the UK Albums Chart for their debut album 'Emergency on Planet Earth' in 1993, Jamiroquai has gone from strength to strength in the funk/acid jazz scene. The band's frontman, Jay Kay, is notable for his unique headwear, which he wears during most live performances. 'Canned Heat', a track from their 1999 album 'Synkronized', is memorable for being the very song that the titular character in the film 'Napoleon Dynamite' does his strange yet unforgettable dance to. Other Jamiroquai songs to have featured in films include 'Deeper Underground' in the 1998 film 'Godzilla'.

4. The Icelandic singer Bjork is very known for her work as a solo artist. Before this she was in a very sweet band. What is the name of this band?

From Quiz Musical Kaffeeklatsch

Answer: The Sugarcubes

The Sugarcubes are an alternative rock band from Iceland, formed in 1986. Their singer Bjork Guomondsdottir would later go on to enjoy a successful solo career. Other band members included Einar Orn Benediktsson and Bragi Olafsson. They split in 1992, after releasing three studio albums. Some of their singles include "Birthday", "Regina" and "Planet".

5. They split up in 2000, came back together for the 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony, did a three month tour, and then split again, saying this time it was for good. Which girl group is this?

From Quiz Let's Get Together

Answer: Spice Girls

The Spice Girls formed in 1994 and quickly became the number one girl group in the world. Album and single sales were in the multi-millions and they simply could not put a foot wrong. They won Brit Awards, MTV Awards, Billboard Awards and every live performance was a sell out. In 1998 Geri Halliwell announced she was leaving to concentrate on a solo career, but the remaining four, Mel B, Mel C, Victoria Beckham and Emma Bunton, decided to carry on. This lasted until 2000 when they announced they were taking a break to allow each of them to develop solo careers. There was a brief reunion tour in 2007/08, but then they split again. In 2012 it was announced they were reuniting for the London Olympics, and their performance of their greatest hits was, for many, one of the highlights of the Closing Ceremony. A three month tour of Europe followed. A musical of their life, "Viva Forever", written by Jennifer Saunders opened in December 2012. They all co-operated with this, probably thinking that in the wake of the Olympics it would be successful, but it had disastrous reviews and closed due to poor ticket sales in June 2013. A potential 2014 tour was scrapped and they said they would never perform together again. Question by Christinap

6. Although the band started out with three members, only two remain. They have had hits such as "Sister Golden Hair", and "Daisy Jane", and won a Grammy for the best new artist in 1972. Name the band!

In 2010, Larrikin Records successfully sued Hay and Strykert, their record label (Sony) and their music publishing company (EMI Songs Australia) because of the appropriation without attribution of "Kookaburra" (a 1932 Australian nursery rhyme) for the flute line in "Down Under".

Answer: The Beatles

The official title for "last Beatles album" is up for debate. 'Let it Be' was the last album released by the band, but most of it was recorded before 'Abbey Road'. The Beatles, also known as John, Paul, George and Ringo, are arguably the greatest band of all time, despite only being together for a decade. What other band could have a compilation album ('The Beatles 1') released thirty years after disbanding hit number one on most of the major world charts?
