MTftSB #2: How many of the UK Number 1s from the last year


#1

… could you sing a line of?
(If you’re tone deaf, I’d accept a monotone rendition).

Here is the list:

  • Sam Smith “Writing’s on the Wall”
  • Justin Bieber “What Do You Mean?”
  • KDA featuring Tinie Tempah and Katy B “Turn the Music Louder (Rumble)”
  • Adele “Hello”
  • Justin Bieber “Sorry”
  • Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir “A Bridge over You”
  • Justin Bieber “Love Yourself”
  • Shawn Mendes “Stitches”
  • ZAYN “Pillowtalk” RCA
  • Lukas Graham “7 Years”
  • Mike Posner “I Took a Pill in Ibiza”
  • Drake featuring Wizkid and Kyla “One Dance”
  • Major Lazer featuring Justin Bieber and MØ “Cold Water”
  • The Chainsmokers featuring Halsey “Closer”
  • James Arthur “Say You Won’t Let Go”

I reckon I could do 8 of the 15.


#2

Only that Adele one.


#3

all of these have a line that is the title. the rest, no fucking clue


#4

Not Lewisham and Greenwich or James Arthur but all the others.

I’m the only one on my music pub quiz team who has any clue about current stuff so I listen to radio 1 occasionally to swot up.


#5

Unless Adele’s been covering Lionel Richie I have literally no idea how any of those go at all :confused:


#6

Zero. No fucking idea whatsoever.


#7

I’d definitely heard all of these, just can’t remember how they go.


#8

good mumble my way through a line of stitches, I reckon.


#9

I’m not sure if I have heard a single one of them.


#10

None. Thought The pub guy had the hit with Spectre last year?


#11

These ones:

Sam Smith “Writing’s on the Wall”
Adele “Hello”
Justin Bieber “Sorry”
Shawn Mendes "Stitches"
ZAYN “Pillowtalk” RCA
Lukas Graham “7 Years”


#12

Daniel Craig: Pub Guy


#13

Only these two.

The first cos I’ve heard a horrifically bad cover of it by my local X Factor reject. The second has been everywhere but I wouldn’t have remembered it existed or know the title or artist if it hadn’t come up in conversation recently.

I’ve heard Adele and Sam Smith but don’t remember much about them anymore and would have to look them up first. Probably heard some more without realising.


#14

Can’t believe you didn’t do this as a poll tbh:

I could hum/sing along to a bit of…

  • Justin Bieber “What Do You Mean?”
  • KDA featuring Tinie Tempah and Katy B “Turn the Music Louder (Rumble)”
  • Adele “Hello”
  • Justin Bieber “Sorry”
  • Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir “A Bridge over You”
  • Justin Bieber “Love Yourself”
  • Shawn Mendes “Stitches”
  • ZAYN “Pillowtalk”
  • Lukas Graham “7 Years”
  • Mike Posner “I Took a Pill in Ibiza”
  • Drake featuring Wizkid and Kyla “One Dance”
  • Major Lazer featuring Justin Bieber and MØ “Cold Water”
  • The Chainsmokers featuring Halsey “Closer”
  • James Arthur “Say You Won’t Let Go”

cheers.


#16

vaguely know the Drake tune. I mean, listened to it like, once. not great - big fan of his otherwise, tho.


#17

definitely heard most (or at least more than 50%). I can’t remember any of them though

so:

0


#18

You needed a “none of the above” option else your percentages are going to be all over, aren’t they? Or can you vote without selecting any options?


#19

i’ve just youtubed all of these and turns out i’m also very familiar with Sorry, Closer and Stitches, but even less familiar with the Sam Smith and Adele ones than i realised.


#20

The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS choir one is a conflation of A Bridge Over Troubled Water and Fix You, so everyone probably knows a bit of that one

(It was Christmas number 1. I bought it because it was for charity, I’ve never listened to it)
