With the 'di' part and the 'opia' part, I'll hazard a guess at seeing double?

With Valentine's Day nearly upon us, 5 loved up questions;

1. What song are the lyrics below from and who sang it;

And I don't know if I'm being foolish
Don't know if I'm being wise
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when I look in your eyes


2. The first mention of Valentine's Day in a romantic context was made in a poem published in 1382. Who wrote that poem, and which British king's engagement anniversary was it honouring?

3. In what year was the infamous St Valentine's Day massacre in Chicago?

4. In 1996, which football (soccer, if you prefer) manager famously said, "I will love it if we beat them! Love it!", and who are the "them" he is referring to?

5. Which mammal in the order Rodentia has genera called Arvicola and Lemmiscus (amongst others) and why is it relevant to the theme of this quiz?

Good luck (especially with number 4 if you're not a Brit )

1. Yes - correct on both parts.
3. No, not 1932

Yes - correct on both parts. You can certainly have an extra point for knowing Kev's birthday is Valentine's Day (I wish I could say that I knew that and that it was deliberate on my part, but I didn't and it wasn't).

So far then, 2 points to orlok and 3 to TGS.

Both correct. What does the answer to 5 have to do with the theme of this quiz though?

So it's 3 points for TGS, 2 for orlok and 2 for Stitchawl so far. Still 3 points up for grabs though.

Voles is an anagram of loves?

Yes that's it (or 'vole' and 'love'). Pretty spurious, I know, but it fits the theme.
