hi.gif sorry this has arrived a day later than I intended but here's my quiz, the final one of this chart forum quiz season so make sure you all enter for your final chance for leaderboard points xx

I have tried to make these questions decently challenging (to avoid having questions with an overwhelmingly obvious top answer) but hopefully not toooo hard to the point where it's difficult to find a valid answer for any of these. Let me know if the wording of any of these needs to be clarified also, but I hope it should be fine. x

Remember this is FAMILY FORTUNES which means you need to PM me the answer you think will be the most common to each question. Don't be the one person every time who sends in super obscure answers for every question thinking it's Pointless. x

1. Name a song that charted in the UK top 40 after becoming popular on TikTok.
2. Name an artist whose highest charting song in the UK peaked at #2.
3. Name an album which missed the UK top 40 despite containing at least one UK top 10 single.
4. Name a song that is a cover or heavily samples another song and charted higher in the UK than the original version.
5. Name an artist who has had UK top 40 singles in at least four different decades.
6. Name an artist from Europe, not including the UK, who has had a UK top 40 single this year.
7. Name a charity single which did not reach #1 in the UK.
8. Name an artist who has at least one UK #1 album, but their highest selling album did not reach #1.
9. Name a song which reached the top 40 in the UK for the first time after the artist's death (having been released during their lifetime).
10. Name two artists that BuzzJack would complain endlessly about if they made a song together.

I'll give everyone a week to enter, so will aim to do the results next Tuesday evening - I'll accept any answers that come in before I start a results thread but it would be good for me if you can aim to enter by Monday (8th June) at the latest.

Right, so this is DEFINITELY Family Fortunes? I know your description is pretty conclusive that it is, but from the leaderboard thread I was expecting a Pointless round from you, so just want to be 100% sure!

I’ll be entering this but need to have a think of some answers first!

Good questions here as I can’t think of a clear obvious answer (except from maybe #4 as I know this site really dislikes one cover of a BJ stanned artist).

I have entered, and question 9 didn’t seem to offer any obvious names that met the criteria of a single that had been released in an artists lifetime but peaked Top 40 after their death, but thankfully I found one but it probably wouldn’t get guessed by many others.

Also the answer I gave for question 3 is probably an only answer from me. laugh.gif

Hand me last place now.

For number 10, can it be a collaboration that has actually happened already or one that hasn’t yet?

Surely the words "would" and "if" means they haven't yet.

Can number 3 be a greatest hits album or does it have to be a studio album?

I hadn't even thought about greatest hits albums being eligible for that question but they're a valid answer if you think others may also interpret it that way ~ (though good luck banking on enough people finding any one particular such greatest hits album for that strategy to be much of a points winner laugh.gif)

There aren't any 'incorrect' answers in this quiz, the scores will be based purely on how many other people put the same answer as you.

Good set. I couldn't think of anything for q3 so had to put an incorrect answer (close tho tbf) and hope others do the same. Given this is FF hopefully there won't be an obvious landslide I've completely missed and the damage limitation will be real.

Entered!

Don’t know if there’s any real obvious answers I had to think for most of these.

Really intrigued at the no top 40 album with a top ten single. I said an album I LOVE for that but now think there’s another one from an artist this site loves what might fare better laugh.gif
