Clues come at random intervals, until someone guesses the song and artist.

The clues are harder at the beginning.

Some clues are facts, some are links and some are just plain cryptic.

Right, here we go.


TITLE AND ARTIST, EXACTLY, OF A WELL KNOWN SONG FROM YESTERYEAR.


Clue No. 1 :

Debut UK hit single.
Track starts off with drums for several seconds.

as far as i know there's more than ONE dead bee gee though. in fact i think at least 6 of them died, leaving a further 8 to continue assaulting our ears with falsetto cringe-a-delica.

according to the facts so far, only one person is dead.

wow, it's the ramones!! but which song??
