I think this is an excellent idea for a series, i do hope you would make more of these in the future. I do have a suggestion: You listed Celine Dion by her first name, but you have Clapton and Chopin listed by their last, i think it should be kept to one format. Great work nonetheless, keep the series going!

In today's world Dion DiMucci could marry Celine and his name would be Dion Dion.

Celine Dion's husband is much older than she is too. Probably not as old as DiMucci, but still...what could have been!

Agreed it is not like she is commonly know as Celine. Like Beyonce is simply known like that without Knowles.

Never heard of that caribbean music style. Looking it up I noticed there are more styles starting with a C. Wikipedia also mentions cadence-lypso, chutney, chutney-soca and compas. Although they are all new to me, it might be good to add them as alternative answers.

Calypso is by far the most well-known of any of the others you listed, though.

Really? Calypso was extremely popular in the states with Harry Belafonte fronting it. Calypso pants were popular in the early sixties. I had a pair.

my first (and only) guess was chachachá, which is Cuban so I guess it should be accepted

Yes agreed. Cha-cha originated in Cuba (and hence the Caribbean) in the 1950s and should be accepted as well.

Under no scenario should Clapton's clue be about a song that he covered not when there is a mountain of other clues that could have been used. How about "Slowhand" or "Only person to be enshrined in the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame three times" or "'God', according to popular 1960s London Graffiti"?

Ah I was already confused, huh is that by clapton???

I agree that clue should definitely be changed. I suggest using "Layla" or "Wonderful tonight" or "Tears in heaven" those are what he is most known for.

Shouldn't Céline have an accent on the "e"? Or does she remove it on the international stage?

Yes her name has an accent aigu on the first e. It's written that way on her website it looks like.

I spent so much time thing of Elton John songs, I forgot about Cello. I didn't even see that question until time was up. that was the only one I missed. I am greatly ashamed of myself. I need to sit in the corner and think of what I have done.

I was going to complain that Cyndi Lauper should be accepted as a "C" name who sang "Turn Back Time" (as in, "If only I could turn back time, if only I had said what I still hide," that one). My world was rocked to find that that was actually sung by Aqua, of "Barbie Girl" fame. Am I the only one who always thought that was Cyndi Lauper, or is that a Mandela Effect thing going on?
