Mick Jones was with Foreigner, Allan Clarke with the Hollies and Billy Bremner with Rockpile. I'll guess Terry Cooper played with Tommy James. Anyhoo, it's LUFC players

Great answer John, the missing member was Eddie Gray in Tommy James and the Shondells but you answered correctly, well done. I await your next question.

I have no idea, as I didn't even know it wasn't written by them until now, but I do know a little bit of trivia - that at the time of the release of The Carpenters version, it was the longest title of any UK hit single ... "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft (The Official Anthem of World Contact Day)". Don't know if it's been beaten since.
I can't wait for the answer, so I'm off to Google.

I remember when I played the original in a Quiz years ago ( I collect original versions and have over 1000 ) and one team put Klandu as the answer. They were close but not close enough, the name of the artist is Klaatu.
