Big Summer Quiz Category 6 – Number Ones!

No, not Goalkeepers. Something a little different for this round.

For the first 5 questions, I will give you an event in Saints history and I want the song that was number one in the UK charts at that time. One point for the correct song title and one point for the correct artist name.

For the second 5 questions, I will give you a song and artist, I want you to name the moment in Saints history that occurred while that song was number one in the UK charts. Simple.
