Frankie Laine, Guy Mitchell & Pharrell Williams is correct.

(I recall that Bohemian Rhapsody reached number one twice and I would argue that Band Aid Band Aid 2 and Band Aid 20 were different acts)

Cheers david!

Better late than never, here's a new question....

Sophie Ellis-Bextor's 2001 debut solo hit Take Me Home had (albeit in a slightly different version) previously been a US Billboard Top 10 hit in 1979 for which legendary singer?

It is indeed Cher, NPQ ! (I was sorry to have missed your quiz, incidentally - I had something else on that weekend - next year maybe?!)

Anyway, over to you for the next question.

Thanks Colin, incidentally there is another national Pop Quiz starting in May, PM me with your details and I'll email you the form, it's for teams of 4, got a few places left.Daniel Fullard a member on here is trying to raise a team but struggling for players. The venue is in Wakefield and all group matches are on Thursday evening, be great to have you along if you're not too far away.
Anyway popsters here is your next challenge - Who are the only two artists to have had seperate UK hit singles with 'King' and 'Queen' in the title ?

Ooh, this is a tough one, NPQ!

I'm guessing one of them is Neil Sedaka (King Of Clowns & The Queen of 1964). I've drawn a blank on the other one, though!
