Sunday Is So Special (And the USA – What A Great Place It Was)

If you like it cool and easy, the best quizzes of the week are Sunday nights

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: One of the answers in the music round is Van Halen. See video below if you want to hear the (rocking) tune.

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is Wimbledon.

The video was made when rock was big, brash and best served American. I’m talking about the 1980s. We’re feeling Ronald Reagan, hamburgers, the Dukes of Hazzard and loads of denim jackets. We’re talking about working in a steel mill all week long and living for Sunday Night Football.

We’re liking Van Halen and Beverley Hills Cop and freeways and cheap gas and french fries in fact freedom fries. We’re talking Space Shuttles and Back the The Future and cheese that isn’t strictly a food.

This is the USA.

That was the USA.

Then the commies spoiled it all. Or something like that.
