2) Which band recorded the song 'Eye of the Tiger'? (1 point)
3) What's the longest time a song has been UK number one? (in weeks, 3 weeks either side will still get you the point) (1 point)
4) Who wrote 'The Four Seasons'? (1 point) Vivaldi (Answered by Jakub)
5) What was the title of The Beatles first christmas number one UK hit? (1 point)
6) Which band did Brian Connolly front? (1 point)

You've obviously never done a pub quiz, they're generally quite obscure questions. If they were easy what would the challenge be?

And if you've never heard of Bob Geldof, oh my.
