So here we go, the answers to the first Buzzjack ‘Answer Smash’. Thanks to all those that played we had 36 players in the end and it seems to have really split opinion, as some found it easy and others really difficult! I hope everyone enjoyed it as a concept though.

For the scoring, as mentioned in the original post, the main scoring is 5 points for a correct answer and 1 point for getting either the picture or written questions correct, but not giving the full answer. I’ve also decided to give out some discretionary points, for example if someone has answered both parts correct but not smashed the answer I have awarded 4 points. Other discretionary points will be given during the course of the answer reveal.

Question 1



“Derek and the Domino’s song, that Eric Clapton wrote about George Harrison’s wife Patti (who he was in love with!)”

Picture: Coldplay
Written question: Layla
Answer Smash: Coldplayla

Commentary
This was a fairly easy picture with a slightly more obscure question. Apparently Eric Clapton fell in love with George Harrison’s wife Patti Boyd and this song was written about his unrequited love for her – they eventually got together and married (and then divorced). *Some genius guesses of song titles, smashed with Coldplay, though – Lay your love on me, Play that song & Play the Game!!

Five points: Awardinary, Paulgilb, xajnipi, Adele, TS0301, jlj, CianS92, M4NGO, lordp, chrissmith276, ultrafolklore, dj_tim_e, AaronTM, King Rollo, n4yr, ...ready for it, Cremey, MiichaelKing21, MrAndrewMa, Riser, RabbitFurCoat, jimwatts, Jade, Jester, Jahq, dandy*, Chez Wombat, dan-G, Bré

Four points: Bjork

One point: PeteFromLeeds (Coldplay your love on me)
Ansel (Coldplay That Song)
vancey (Coldplay the game)
Vibe (Coldplay)

Half a point: Mack. (ColdPatti)

No points: oof

That was the perfect introduction for me! I'm a huge Beatles fan so knew that trivia about George's wife and Coldplay are another of my favourite bands too laugh.gif

Question 2



Who sang ‘When everything's made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am’?

Picture: Kajagoogoo
Written question: Goo Goo Dolls
Answer Smash: Kajagoogoo Dolls

Commentary:
A slightly harder photo, especially for younger players, but Kajagoogoo had a fairly iconic look so hopefully not too obscure. The question refers to lyrics from a very well-known song, Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls.

Five points: Awardinary, Paulgilb, xajnipi, Adele, CianS92, M4NGO, lordp, dj_tim_e, AaronTM, PeteFromLeeds, Mack., Ansel, King Rollo, ...ready for it, vancey, MrAndrewMa, Riser, RabbitFurCoat, Jade, Jester, dandy*, Chez Wombat, dan-G, oof, Bré

Four points: Bjork (KajagoogooGooGooDolls)
jimwatts (Kajagoogoo Goo Dolls)

One point: TS0301 (Goo Goo Dolls)
jlj (Wake me up before you Goo Goo Dolls)
chrissmith276 (Goo Goo Dolls)
n4yr (Goo Goo Dolls)
Cremey (Goo Goo Dolls)
MiichaelKing21 (Frankie Goes To Hollywoo Goo Dolls)
Jahq (Goo Goo Dolls)

No points: ultrafolklore (boybandiris idk haha)
Vibe (Duran Duran )

I didn't know the song lyric but Goo Goo Dolls was the only act that I could think of that would fit for that one.

Question 3



The Carpenters phoned ET on this top 10 hit single

Picture: Dizzee Rascal

Written question: Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft

Answer Smash: Dizzee Rascalling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft

Commentary:
I think this is one of my favourite answers!! Although he hasn’t really troubled the charts lately, with 5 number ones to his name, the photo should be a fairly recognisible one of Dizzee Rascal. The question relates to the Carpenter’s cover version of ‘Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft’, a song originally by Canadian group Klaatu. *A few people ran with the ET phone home theme and tried to slip that into their answer!

Five points: Awardinary, Paulgilb, xajnipi, TS0301, M4NGO, lordp, chrissmith276, dj_tim_e, AaronTM, King Rollo, Cremey, Riser, jimwatts, Jade, Jester, dandy*, Chez Wombat

Four points: Bjork

One point: PeteFromLeeds (Dizzee Rascall me)
Ansel (Calling Occupants )
vancey (Dizzee rascalifornia dreaming)
Vibe (Disee rascal home)
RabbitFurCoat (Dizzee Rascall Me)
Jahq (Dizzee Rascal)
dan-G (??? Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft)
Bré (Dizzee Rascal something or other)

Half a point: Mack. (DizzeeComeHome)

No points: Adele, jlj, CianS92, ultrafolklore, n4yr, ...ready for it, MiichaelKing21, MrAndrewMa, oof

Question 4



Tiffany from Eastenders took this song to number one

Picture: Cyndi Lauper

Written question: Perfect Moment

Answer Smash: Cyndi Lauperfect Moment

Commentary:
The picture caught quite a lot of people out being of 80s icon Cyndi Lauper. Apologies to the non-Brits for the Eastenders reference but the character of Tiffany was memorably played by Martine McCutcheon, who in turn took her debut single, Perfect Moment, to number one.

Five points: Paulgilb, xajnipi, M4NGO, lordp, chrissmith276, dj_tim_e, AaronTM, Ansel, King Rollo, Vibe, MiichaelKing21, Riser, jimwatts, Jade, Jester, dandy*, oof

Four points: Bjork

One point: jlj (Perfect Moment)
CianS92 (Cyndi Lauper)
Mack. (FlorencePerfectMoment)
n4yr (Cyndi Lauper Alone Now?)
Cremey (...perfect moment)
vancey (Something perfect moment! )
RabbitFurCoat (...Perfect Moment)
Jahq (Perfect Moment)

No points: awardinary, Adele, TS0301, ultrafolklore, PeteFromLeeds, ...ready for it, MrAndrewMa, Chez Wombat, dan-G, Bré

Question 5



The Barenaked Ladies sang about an instance of 7 days on this single

Picture: Boyzone

Written question: One Week

Answer Smash: Boyzone Week

Commentary:
This tuned out to be the most correctly answered question. The picture shows a fresh-faced, mid-90s Boyzone. What surprised me the most was how many people remembered the Barenaked Ladies and their top 5 hit, One Week, which is obviously a collection of 7 days!

Five points: Awardinary, Paulgilb, xajnipi, Adele, TS0301, jlj, CianS92, M4NGO, lordp, chrissmith276, ultrafolklore, dj_tim_e, AaronTM, Mack., Ansel, King Rollo, n4yr, ...ready for it, Cremey, vancey, Vibe, MrAndrewMa, Riser, RabbitFurCoat, jimwatts, Jade, Jester, Jahq, dandy*, Chez Wombat, dan-G, oof, Bré

Four points: Bjork

No points: PeteFromLeeds, MiichaelKing21

One Week is such a tune - remember trying to do at karaoke and the verses are so fast... Managed pretty well until the section where it goes:

Gonna get a set of better clubs
Gonna find the kind with tiny nubs
Just so my irons aren't always flying off the back-swing

thankfully there wasn't anything else that could've been mashed with Goo Goo Dolls cos I'd never have recognised a picture of Kajagoogoo. Couldn't think of anything for the Dizzee Rascal question though, it's been so long since he was last relevant that I didn't recognise him.

Question 6



The Buggles hit number one with this song

Picture: Craig David

Written question: Video Killed the Radio Star

Answer Smash: Craig Davideo Killed the Radio Star

Commentary:
This was the only question where every player scored a point. A young, early 2000s, Craig David can be seen in this photo, from his Born to Do it era. The answer refers to the biggest and most well-known song from the Buggles, Video Killed the Radio Star. *Mack. drops points for not including the surname (it no longer smashes) and MiichaelKing21 switched the order for something weird!!

Five points: Paulgilb, xajnipi, Adele, TS0301, CianS92, M4NGO, lordp, chrissmith276, ultrafolklore, dj_tim_e, AaronTM, PeteFromLeeds, Ansel, King Rollo, n4yr, ...ready for it, Cremey, vancey, Vibe, MrAndrewMa, Riser, RabbitFurCoat, jimwatts, Jade, Jester, Jahq, dandy*, Chez Wombat, dan-G, oof, Bré

Four points: Bjork

Two and a half points: Mack. (Craig Video Killed The Radiostar)

Two points: MiichaelKing21 (Video Killed The Craigdio Star)

One point: awardinary (Craig David)
jlj (Video Killed The Radio Star)
