"Whitney Houston", not "Witney Houston". And do we have to "Paul M & Stevie Wonder" exactly like that?

Thanks for the corrections, I have changed Witney to Whitney and the other one too
Level 35

Also "Bucks Fizz" not Buzz Fizz, the Flying "Pickets" not the Flying Pockets, Joe "Dolce" Music Theatre, not "Joe Dance".

Oh, and you might want to get it to just accept "Yazz", since I'm not sure how many people remember the Plastic Population, and ever fewer of them will think to phrase their answer "Yazz the plastic population". And the answer to "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" is displaying as Culture Club, but it won't accept it as an answer...

Oversight on the Yazz answer, have made the change you recommended, also Culture Club I have fixed the answer, the was an error, thanks for pointing these out.

Nice quiz- there are a few times when just typing the last name won't work but the first will, which is a bit odd. Especially given how lenient you have been with eg "Frankie", "Dexys" etc.

Can you accept just The Spinners as they were known at the time as well as the Detroit Spinners and even the Motown Spinners LOL! Confusing! Also can you accept Yazoo for "Only You" it went to number 2 in 1982. Also "Power of Love" was also a hit for Frankie Goes to Hollywood... went to number one the week for before Band Aid in December 1984. This really was a fun quiz by the way, challenging! Nice Job!!

It's 'Dave' Stewart and Barbara Gaskin, not 'David'.

Ditto to Renee & Renato (I used "and") and David Stewart (I used the correct nomenclature of "Dave").
