Thank you, BCB!)

Not a clue.



Beatles All You Need is Love on the grounds that there may have been some music on the round the world broadcast.



or

India Morning Raga by Ravi Shankar just because


or

England Fantasia on a Theme of Tallis, John Barbirolla & friends.



Are they all from a film? Too early for clues, don't answer yet. Intriguing.

Well, I don't see anything English in that list, so I'll guess "My Mother Was A Friend Of An Enemy Of The People" by Blurt.

Is that the Voyager Golden record?
Is the answer Johnny B Goode by Chuck Berry?

Nine people scored their only British number one single as a soloist after their deaths: two in the 60s, one each in the 70s 80s and 90s, and four in the noughties.
First to name all four from the 21st century or all five from the 20th gets it.

Two of those are right. One never had a number one, and two had several.

Buddy Holly, Jim Reeves, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon but I can’t think of the 90s one.

I'm pretty sure Rest Petite went to no. 1 in the 90s. The claymation video. Lennon went to number one with, I think, Woman after he died. I see I misread the question: their only number one. Did Imagine also get to no 1?

I thought La Bamba got reissued on the back of the movie and I remembered it getting to no.1, but thinking back it was a Los Lobos cover.

Not until after Lennon died, no, but he did have three posthumous number ones, with Starting Over, Imagine and Woman

Got it! ( I think) - Sam Cooke 'Wonderful World'. It was re-released back in the 80s as part of the Levis ad campaign.

So the artists are Buddy Holly, Jimi Hendrix, Jackie Wilson, Jim Reeves and Sam Cooke

Three of those are right. One never had a number one, one had another number one before his death.
