Bands beginning with 'B'

Post by Hipper » Sat Nov 21, 2020 10:23 am

First a story. Beware that I'm an old git and I may have told this before!

The Square

When I was at junior school, aged ten or so, I was in the playground when this girl, Lesley Humphreys who I never liked, came up to me and said 'you're a square'.

I didn't know what this was but the way she said it made it seem not a good thing to be. 'No I'm not'. I said.

'OK, how many Beatles are there?' (this is 1963). Well, at least I'd heard about the Beatles but I hadn't a clue how many there were.
'Three' I said.

'No, there are four. You're a square'. What could I say.

When I got home that day I asked my Mum what a square was....... Yup, I was a square. I still am although a bit more rounded now!

Thinking about this later I recalled that other bands beginning with 'B' had three members - The Beverley Sisters, The Batchelors (me a square?) - so The Beatles must have had three as well. I found out later that there was apparently a 'fifth Beatle'. That girl was wrong - there were five. Indeed at any time there might have been one, two, three and higher so I could have been right afterall.

Anyway, this quiz is about bands beginning with 'B'. I've mentioned the Beverley Sisters. Here they are singing 'I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus':

There's a football connection. Joy married Billy Wright of Wolves.

The aircraft the Blackburn Beverley is no relation. It got its name from the founder of the aircraft company that built bit and a place called Beverley near Hull, where the last remaining Berverley is on display:

Right, enough of this twaddle - Bands beginning with B plus a song by them.

As for the Beverley Sisters - there was very little in life that my dad didn't like, he never got upset with much, but the mere mention of the Beverley Sisters drove him mad. He'd switch off the TV if they came on.
