Ireland? My Mother did (and still does) love Matt Monro ... personally I could never see the attraction!

Too easy, this is one of my favourite Beatles tracks. '68 from the album 'The Beatles'. Funnily enough, this was written by McCartney only, but credited as 'Lennon/McCartney"
in the credits But then, they composed so much good stuff I imagine nobody cares!

This much have been from 'War' from '83? Unless you include live albums (Unforgettable Fire from 1984 - brilliant live album, probably makes it onto my top 10 'live' albums ... sometimes!)? mmm, still stuck and I'm quite a fan of U2 and seen them many times. If you do include 'live' albums, then I will go for India.

Absolutely no idea, unless you're talking about The Style Council (Paul Weller - ex The Jam)? If so, let me know and I can probably find it if I dig around my albums/cd's.

Not a clue!

Is this a trick question?

San-Fran.

Winchester Cathedral ... Frank Sinatra and about a million others!

On the New Jersey Turnpike! This was the first Simon and Garfunkel song I ever learnt on guitar. Now I'll be singing "
Kathy, I'm lost,"
I said, though I knew she was sleeping ... I'm empty and aching and I don't know why"
all afternoon.

Thanks Ash

Guys and Dolls ... and I believe that Walter Matthau once played this character in New York?

That's me done ... harder than I expected without Googling! Keep 'em coming Ash, I love music quizzes.
