    Excellent. questions. In question 10 I believe Millennium Prayer suprisingly did not make Xmas number1 in the UK in1999. Question 33 I believe should be Harry Belafonte in 1957.

    • Glad you enjoyed them.
      In answer to your comments: According to everyhit.com (the reference I used when I compiled this) The Millennium Prayer did reach number one in the UK in November 99; You are correct with Harry Belafonte – now corrected.
