Adele - Someone Like You
Elvis Presley - Blue Suede Shoes
Chic - Good Times
Madness - Our House
Beyoncé - Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)

You have until 3pm today to state your guesses in the thread below. (or you can PM them to me if you’re worried about people copying your answers). No Googling, please!
