And your time starts .... now!

TJ's done a music quiz on his blog, and I don't know any of the answers at all. Therefore I've done my own music quiz, loosely based on the idea that if I am capable of setting these questions, then you should be well equipped to respond correctly. I wonder how many Kevin Ashman could get? I'll delay publishing any responses until 5pm at the earliest so that you're not tempted to look when the boy Masterton claims 20 out of 20. Here goes...

1 - Which song was written as a direct riposte to Southern Man by Neil Young?

2 - Who was the balding frontman of one hit wonders Classix Nouveaux who then had a similarly singular solo career?

3 - Rick Witter is the lead singer of which 90s band?

4 - Who provided the female vocals on the Prince hit Diamonds & Pearls?

5 - What was the question of considerable fuckwittery that Donna Air put to the Corrs on television?

6 - Which rock star's former careers included youth footballer with Brentford and gravedigger?

7 - Yootha Joyce appeared on the front cover of which Smiths single?

10 - Which is the only song to have been number one in the UK in four entirely different versions?

11 - Which actor did the hammed up "we have a dream" cobblers on Scotland's 1982 World Cup song?

12 - Working Man was a hit for who in 1990?

13 - Which song won Madness an Ivor Novello award in 1983?

14 - "I said that I would marry her, that pretty girl in the lower year..." is a line from which Top 10 hit of the 1980s?

15 - Which product did the Kinks have to remove from the lyrics of one of their songs in 1970?

16 - Which brother and sister sang Ain't Nobody together at the BRIT awards earlier this decade?

17 - "Hi, my name's Stereo Mike!" is the introduction on which 1999 hit?

18 - Which was the first single released off the Sterephonics' album Performance And Cocktails?

19 - A child called Abby Kimber uttered the closing line on which 1980s number one single?
