Since the desire has been expressed that this be in a new thread, I'll start off with today's:

18/36/1

Which is odd, as the contestant rather impressively got 36 on the first round, in the face of some really obscure questions.

Unusually, I had an uninterrupted run.

I was on my bike on Friday, rushing to catch a train, but I'm back today:

24/30/3*

Actually 5, but Hall & Oates had a lot of hits.  And was it just me, or were the bonuses mostly remarkably easy today?

I like Manfred Mann, but not so much Janet Jackson.

Today is significant in that I actually got the right year in the first round, breaking a long run of One Year Out.  Don't worry, though, I was OYO again in the second round :-[

15/24/2

And both years correct! :o

But were they the worst pair of contestants ever?  Had either of them ever heard any popular music?  9 points each and one of the longest tie-breakers in history.

Though I have to confess I didn't know which album those George Michael singles came from.

I got one of the years correct, but only because of the Bowie/Jagger Dancing in the Street, which was an obvious help. And of course I knew the George Michael question.  ;D

I hadn't ever twigged before that Michael Jackson did the backing vocals on that Rockwell single but now I know, it's so obvious I can't believe I never noticed before.

Just checked Wikipedia.  I'd never have got more than two for the three in ten, even on a very good day.
