And the winner is...............Dave with 9/15.

Mind you, this could well have something to do with the fact that he was the only one who replied!

For the rest of you, here are the answers:

1) Baby, here I am, I’m the man on the scene
I can give you what you want, but you got to come home with me
Otis Redding – Hard to Handle

2) I once had a girl
Or should I say
She once had me
Beatles – Norwegian Wood

3) The indians send signals from the rocks above the pass,
The cowboys take position in the bushes and the grass
Squeeze – Cool for Cats

4) Monday morning feels so bad
Everybody seems to nag me
Easybeats – Friday on my Mind

5) I, I love the colourful clothes she wears
And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair
Beach Boys – Good Vibrations

6) Over bridge of sighs
To rest my eyes in shades of green
Small Faces – Itchycoo Park

7) There she is again stepping out of her limousine
Looking like the cover of a $20 magazine
Humble Pie – Natural Born Boogie

8) You get a shiver in the dark,
It’s raining in the park,
But meantime
Dire Straits – Sultans of Swing

9) She would never say
Where she came from
Yesterday don’t matter
If it’s gone
Rolling Stones – Ruby Tuesday

10) Make me a deal and make it straight,
All signed and sealed, I’ll take it
Roxy Music – Virginia Plain

11) Walking round the room singing “Stormy Weather”
At 57 Mount Pleasant Street
Crowded House – Weather with You

12) My make-up is dry and it cracks on my chin,
I’m drowning my sorrows in whisky and gin
Dave Davies – Death of a Clown

13) Know it sounds funny but I just can’t stand the pain,
Well I’m leavin’ you tomorrow
Commodores – Easy

14) Oh, life is bigger,
It’s bigger than you,
And you are not me
REM – Losing my Religion

15) Your everlasting summer
You can see it fading fast
So you grab a piece of something,
That you think is gonna last
Steely Dan – Reelin’ in the Years

That was neat, but way to hard for me!
Thanks for the effort though; I did try, but looking at your answers I only got one right :cry:

What a shame you didn't get more entries, Mike. It was a really good quiz and it would be a pity to waste your efforts, so here's my suggestion.

Quizzes are very popular on our main website - ie with people just looking for trivia rather than wanting to participate on a discussion forum. With your permission, I'd like to copy your music quiz onto BE's trivia section:

http://britishexpat.com/category/leisure/trivia/

Please let me know if this is OK with you.

BTW, we used to have "Pub Quizzes" in Chinwags too. They tended to get a bit more response - as long as they were general knowledge and not too difficult. I did one on Thailand but didn't get much response either. :)

Why not have a go at a Pub Quiz? Don't make it too hard, though. :D
