5 Tea Time Theme Time quizzes

As recently posed on Facebook, here are five Tea Time Theme Time posers, as you'd usually hear on Mark & Radcliffe (sorry, Radcliffe and Maconie) on BBC 6 Music. Answers at the foot of the page.

5) Got a new mega Tea Time Theme Time for you. What links these 6 records?
Green Green Grass Of Home - Tom Jones
Martha's Harbour - All About Eve
If You Leave Me Now - Chicago
Hi Hi Hi - Wings
Good Morning Starshine - Oliver
An Englishman In New York - Sting

(and a slight return, because no-one was guessing the first one correctly...)

1) (Take Two) I'm delighting in the fact that no-one, but no-one, can get my 8-part Tea Time Theme Time, here are some extra clues. Any one of these would also work as a clue to the puzzle I gave earlier...

Love Plus One - Haircut 100
Favourite Shirt - Haircut 100
Sawan Ma Kahina - Milan
Party Party- Elvis Costello
Cars - Gary Numan
Wherever I Lay My Hat That's My Home - Paul Young
The Lovecats - The Cure
Song For Whoever - Beautiful South

Come on. You must get it now.

And the answers are:

1) My Love, my shirt, Milan, this party, my car, my hat, my cat and this song are the 8 things that Right Said Fred are Too Sexy for.

2) Scott (Walker), Virgil (who wrote the Aenid), John (Wayne), Gordon (is a moron in Jilted John), and Alan (O'Day) are the various pilots and crew of the car that The Beach Boys will have Fun Fun Fun until her father takes it away - the T Bird, or Thunderbird.

3) Dave (Clark), (Kiki) Dee, Doe-si (doe your partner), (Captain) Beaky, Mick (Jones) and, er, Teach (In) had a number one with The Legend Of Xanadu in 1968.

4) Cousin Norman has a stammer like a hammer, you can't understand a w-w-word he says; Why don't you just f-f-f-f-fade away?; B-b-b-b-baby you just ain't seen nothing yet. All songs have a mock stammer in them.

5) Tom Jones (1963), All About Eve (1950), Chicago (2002), Wings (1928), Oliver (1968), and The Sting (1973) were all winners of the Academy Award for Best Picture.
