Fandango’s Provocative Questions – 2 November 2022

For the first time, I am participating in this challenge Fandango’s Provocative Questions

This is what Fandango says, “Let’s have some fun this week. Or what I hope you’ll think is fun. My question is simple. It’s all about favorites. If you were asked to name your absolute favorite in each of the following categories, what would they be?”

Here are my answers:-


Lady in Red by Christo Burgh is ‘Our Song’

Musical artist or group

I’m sorry to be boring but I am almost 70 and grew up with The Beatles, Elvis, Cliff Richard – so yes – they’re still my favourites.


Oh my – what a question! I have so many favourites. But the one book that sticks in my mind, most people probably haven’t even heard of. It’s 84 Charring Cross Road by Helen Hamph


You would think that one of my favourite books would be written by my favourite author but not so! My favourite author is Anne Tyler. I have read all her books and will continue to do so until she retires or dies.


This is a tough one. Everyone says the book is always better and usually that is true – but my favourite book and my favourite movie are the same – 84 Charringcross Road is also a movie and I loved watching it as much as I enjoyed the book. But you do need to read the book and its sequel, The Duchess of Bloomsbury Street, first.

Television show

Well – once again so many – Murder she Wrote, Magnum PI etc. But my absolute favourite of all time – Sex and the City. Just loved it because it was all about female friendship which I totally related to.

Movie or TV actor (male & female)

My favourite movie actors are – Julia Roberts and Richard Gere!

Stage play or musical

Jesus Christ Superstar was awesome.

Live concert

I haven’t attended many music concerts but I did see Chris de Burgh live and it was absolutely amazing.

    Some of your answers had me smiling: Elvis has been my favourite since I was about nine. I remember being so chuffed when one of my brothers gave me the LP with his golden hits when I turned 13 [what is an LP some of your readers may ask!] I enjoyed the novel, ’84 Charing Cross Road’ much more than the film, although the latter was beautifully produced [books are usually better 🙂 ]

      I agree, Anne – the book is always better but when I came across the 84 Charringcross Road film, I watched it on my own and just loved the story all over again.
