This is not a chart forum quiz, or something I put together, Iím actually revisiting content from an old application that ceased to exist many years ago now from Android and iOS. It was called SWYS, and despite a kickstarter campaign last year to try and bring the game back, it was unsuccessful at securing enough funding. sad.gif

As someone who formerly owned this game, I was delighted to find you can see play along on the website for a handful of canvasses, and guess the answers. So I thought Iíd share this canvas from the site, it was made 10 years ago, so bear that in mind, and it contains 50 UK Chart Toppers, and see how many you can guess correctly!

As a disclaimer I didnít make the quiz, Iím not affiliated with SWYS, and I donít have all the quiz answers, but play along with me and see how many you can guess correctly from the clues!

Full link to the quiz is here;

When the app still existed you could click on a clue and get a hint using credits from correct answers. Obviously thatís not the case anymore, so Iím struggling this time around, but I reckon Iíve figured out about 18 correctly so far. You really have to think a lot about it.

I havenít figured it yet but maybe Al Green or Cee Lo Green if that fits? The only other ďAtlanticĒ artist I can think of is Twin Atlantic which doesnít fit. laugh.gif

I spent ages looking for song titles because it said to find the "chart toppers" laugh.gif I now realise we're looking for music acts, but because it says chart toppers, do you know if they all have to have had a number one single? Or is it more of a generic term?

You can check the answers by typing them in - Cee Lo Green is right and fits the clue. I thought that was just rainbow at first! The one that is annoying me is Whitney Houston - it says it's wrong but the girl with the white knee holding the 1 ton house fits the clue!!

The website also says Billboard chat topping acts but it is definitely UK focused / not the US charts.

No artists only sorry! But when you consider for example those two friendly looking flames kink.gif youíll realise they never had a #1 single (possibly an album though).

I'm struggling with this, only got about half of them! I remember there was a similar one to this published in the Daily Mail (I think?) about 15 years ago, which I think might have been the original one of these. Does anyone remember that one? I'll see if I can find it at some point.

Yes - the first 44 are confirmed on the site - the last 3 I think should be right but it says they're wrong!

Did you have to spell no. 44 differently for it to be accepted? Because it's not accepting it for me (and I can't see what the clue for it is either!)

Iím not sure where these are on the picture, and I canít figure out how you got them! laugh.gif

45. Map Ė Flo Rida?
46. Whitney Houston?
47. Sheryl Crow?

Flo Rida is definitely correct as I remember that map in the corner troubling me many years ago until I figured out it was him, and Iím sure about ďWhite Knee House TonĒ being correct too.

Which clues are you stuck on in the picture that may relate to a chart topper?

Lady Gaga is the mad woman by the sink
Kid Rock is the baby with the stick of rock

No idea about Celine Dion

I also have no idea where clues are for Michael Jackson, Cheryl Cole and Plan B

The clues in the picture I'm stuck on are:
The trumpet/trombone
The rocks at the top wearing old-fashioned headwear
The crow and guitar (which could be Sheryl Crow or Cheryl Cole but neither of them quite make sense)
The drip with the letter D on it
The plate with the diamond and whatever the black things are
The man holding up the baby
The reels next to the tailor - I thought they were Bangles but that isn't right, so they could just be sewing reels and not a separate clue
The map of Florida (this surely can't be anything other than Flo-Rida so I'm not sure why that isn't accpeted)
