Good Question doing the rounds.

Can you name the only song that ALL members of the Specials and ALL members of the Sex Pistols played on? Clue: Terry Hall & Johnny Rotten shared lead vocals.

No need. I'm sweet enough...

PS

Rico and Dick didn't play on Rat Race, so technically it's not all of The Specials..

I'll just get me coat......

Ok. Well done Trojan.

Aside from the fact they are all alive etc what does Terry Hall share in common with Neil Diamond, and Sophia Loren and Barbra Streisand?

No, I think Sophia Loren was raised as a Roman Catholic.

The link Terry, Sophia, Neil and Babs is connected with entertainment (nothing to do with race or religion).

Any guesses?

The answer has nothing to do with music venues or hair cuts.

I'm surprised Sugarman hasn't guessed

They all sang songs about Dreamed or Dream in the song titles, I know it’s a long shot but it’s all I can come up with? Smile

The answer is they are all fans of Herbert Kretzmer who is the man who wrote the lyrics for, Les Misérables.
Many singers including Susan Boyle and Neil Diamond have had hits with Le Mis songs such as, "I Dreamed a Dream"
Herbert's first hit was, "Goodness Gracious Me" (by Peter Sellers and Sophia Loren) and he also wrote the words to “When You Gotta Go” which is the song Barbra Streisand closes her concerts with.
Herbert's best known song ("She") was written for a TV theme tune and sung by his close friend, Charles Aznavour. Many famous singers have had a go at recording 'She' including Elvis Costello, Jack Jones, and Jeff Lyne but the best version of"She" was the version by Dave Stewart and Terry Hall (a.k.a Vegas).
Check out this video for the song which should have been the Xmas number one in 92.

I would never have got in a million years.

Here's one.

What are the three connections between 2 Tone and James Bond?

The 2-Tone Band Selecter released a song called James Bond, More Specials features Sock It To Em J.B. (which lists all the films) and Terry & co perform All The Time in The World (from Her Majesty's Secret Services)
