Becky's Island Music Trivia Quiz #215 - 4/6/05

"But They're Huge In England"

Sometimes, music can get lost in translation. The following is a list of U.S. Top Forty by artists that were much more popular in the United Kingdom than in the United States. Granted, all of them had some degree of U.S. success - but their real popularity happened "across the pond."

1. "You're My World" (1964)
2. "Pictures of Matchstick Men" (1968)
3. "Bang A Gong (Get It On)," (1972)
4. "Rock and Roll Part 2" (1972)
5. "Fame" (1975)
6. "You Sexy Thing" (1976)
7. "Bohemian Rhapsody" (1976)
8. "Devil Woman" (1976)
9. "After The Lovin'" (1977)
10. "Take A Chance On Me (1978)
11. "Stumblin' In" (1979)
12. "Run Runaway" (1984)
13. "Chains Of Love" (1988)
14. "Champagne Supernova" (1996)
15. "Never Ever" (1998)
16. "Swear It Again" (2000)
17. "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" (2002)

Bonus: This American singer had Number One hits in the UK with "Bright Eyes" and "I Only Have Eyes For You," but never had that same solo success in the US. Who is he?

Good Luck!!!
