Coupla clues: these guys..by most accounts were the ultimate cheese. They had one big hit...and that was it.

Name that band....

In some ways I was hoping I was wrong. Oh well.

Oh and thanks a lot, now I got that lame Afternoon Delight song stuck in my head...

HA!

Starland Vocal Band are one of those quintessential 'here today-gone tomorrow' situations that I wish would happen to alot of the pop artists that exist today. They had a mega-giant hit with "Afternoon Delight", were nominated for 5 grammys and won the grammy for "Best New Artists" and from all of that...based on one song...they even had a variety show on CBS for a short time, with a young David Letterman as one of the regulars. After that? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. They went nowhere. Pretty amazing. Why can't that happen to Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Ashlee Simpson? You'd figure after so much lambasting in the press and the obviousness of their lack of talent that they'd be history by now...BUT THEY'RE STILL AROUND and they still have an audience. What gives?? Total 'Teflon Idol' situation. They should all have the Starland Vocal Band curse!!!!

Yep, probably Tommy Tutone.

But it does look a little like Billy Vera and the Beaters.

What's the story, Unga?


Keep this thread alive!

OK, here's the business: I got this off the internet some time ago, but it's a killer band ID quiz.

Download it here:

http://rapidshare.de/files/7411612/band_quiz_2.xls.html

It's an excel file. 270 questions. It's pretty tough. It was made in the UK, so expect it to be very brit-centric. Also very current, which killed me. Lots of boy bands, etc.

See how well you can do, and DON'T CHEAT. Post your scores here.

I got 140.
