I demand a recount! Not since the Gore-Bush fiasco has there been such confusion and chaos surrounding a result. I speak, of course - as every Wednesday morning - of the pop quiz. There were three of us this week: me, Darren and Jonathan. (Ian came along too, but sulked when no-one would listen to his preposterous guesses.) The bad news is: we lost by half a point. Yes, again. The good news is: The Team Of Seven had their celebrations cut short after it was mistakenly announced that they'd won. They hadn't either. That'll larn 'em, the cheating bastards. Bitter? Moi?

Among the questions we got right: spot the connection between "Just A Spoonful Of Sugar" by Julie Andrews; "Moon River" by Henry Mancini; and "On The Radio" by Martine McCutcheon. What are the first ten words of Adam And The Ants' "Stand And Deliver"? [Well done, Jonathan for that one.]

Among the questions we got wrong: give the year that the Tears For Fears album "The Hurting" was released. And the year the following were all hits: "Welcome Home" by Peters and Lee; "Angie" by the Rolling Stones; and "Never Gonna Give Ya Up" by Barry White. [We were a year out on each question. Again.]

Answers on an e-mail to the usual address.
