Can someone please explain how "lampost" is an acceptable abbreviation for "lamp post"?
I questioned this on Facebook after seeing the strange-looking "lampost" there. Is it a post for a lam, or an ost for a lamp? Remember, if there is only one "p" it can only belong to "lamp" OR "post", one or th...

Why do some bands get away with STEALING an older band's name?
Worse even than that, why do the NAME-STEALERS usually end up with more success than their victims (i.e. the ones whose names they've STOLEN)? Classic example: NIRVANA. This is the only band with any rights to be called Nirvana:

What is your favourite song for Halloween?
This one is mine. It was a seasonal hit too, it got to number 2 in the Halloween week of 1971. Only Rod Stewart stopped it from being number one.

Why don't some people realise that the only way to make America great again is to bring back the 60s, bring back the hippy movement
and bring back Woodstock? At the very least, why don't the powers-that-be try it and see?

What is your favourite John Lennon song?
It can be a Beatles song or one of his solo songs. I like this one best, but it has to be this version (as opposed to the "White Album" version). This one was on the other side of the "Hey Jude" single.

Do you automatically think of Green Day every time you see a cement mixer on the road?
I saw two cement mixers on the road this morning and I couldn't help thinking of the song "Wake Me Up When September Ends". I'm sure it was the cement mixers that reminded me of it and not the date.

Why do we never hear the word "divers" meaning "various" or "several" any more?
The last person I heard saying it was my grandad, who passed away in 1984 and it was a few years before then I heard him say it. Why did it fall into disuse?

Would you say a record is a top ten hit if it peaks at number 13 in the charts?
And if the next single by the same singer gets to number 5, would you say his second hit is "another top ten hit" after his first one stopped at 13? I personally wouldn't, but one of the music papers did.
