    1. You're really going for it - apart from De La Soul! Remember Family Fortunes, which started on ITV in 1980? Well, for that answer you get the funny electronic noise that incorrect answers always got on that show! :)

  2. I was so sure of the De La Soul track, haha. Though I wasn't born till after the 80's had ended so I have an excuse there, Lol!
    I do remember Family Fortunes though in the mid-late 90's and thank you! :)
