  • As per Dunrobin’s advice, in order to save space in the upload folders, I am altering the way the Quiz Corner threads are moderated. In particular, in the Music Quiz thread, only the previous quiz and the current quiz attachments will be displayed. All previously posted attachments in the thread will be deleted. This will keep the upload folder from becoming too large. Thanks



    Okay, folks - enuff of nitpicking for awhile. Let's have some fun with music trivia and lyrics.

    For instance, here are some television program theme songs from the 70's and 80's ...

    The Dastardly and Mutley theme is from a spinoff of an earlier cartoon show titled Wacky Racers, in which Dick Dastardly and his sidekick dog, Mutley, wreak havoc on the other racers with their dirty tricks.

    Of course, Dudley Do-Right is the bumbling Canadian Mounty who loves his horse more than Sweet Nell.

    The Bob Newhart Show ... a psychiatrist with his own problems at home.

    And, of course, the ever-famous Muppet Show.

  • More Hints:
    TV Theme Song #1:
    One of the principal characters went on to become a well known personality in the movie industry, including many starring roles ... one of the movies this person starred in was titled Twins.

    TV Theme Song #2:
    The lead character for this TV show was seen recently in TV ads addressing "your Medicare benefits concerning the new prescription drug plan".

    TV Theme Song #3:
    The principal character for this show was no newbie to television. This person appeared as the main character for TV shows as far back as 1957 when appearing as a gambler/reluctant hero in the American West, choosing to weasel out of trouble. Buy 'em a drink, offer a cigar, play a few hands of cards - anything but gunplay at which the person wasn't especially adept. A movie of this particular TV show was made in 1994 in which this person also starred.

    TV Theme Song #4:
    The misadventures of a cantankerous person who finds monetary enrichment in other people's throw-away stuff.

  • In the 1995 movie Tommy Boy, there was a scene in which Tommy and Richard had made their quota of brake pad sales and were returning to the factory in Richard's car. Name the three songs they sang along to in the car.

    extra points if you can name the artist(s)

    bonus points if you can name the song/artist(s) that they sang along to in the car on the way to their first sale.

  • Funny - I had no problem downloading #2, which I think is Barney Miller (1975-1982), starring Hal Linden, Max Gail, Abe Vigoda, Ron Glass and Steve Landesberg.

    bonus points if you can name the song/artist(s) that they sang along to in the car on the way to their first sale.

    A few hints:

    First song:
    This song was from 1983 by a band that had only one other notable hit song titled Geno.

    Second song:
    This song appeared in the band's album titled Document in the eighties and quickly rose up in the charts.

    Third song:
    This song was released in the USA in 1972 and rose quickly in the charts, even though the singer was relatively unknown and the words were not sung in English.

    Bonus song:
    This tune was released in 1971 and was one of the biggest hits by this brother-sister group, although they made many, many top hit songs before and thereafter.

  • Well, all three are by Tom Petty. #1 is "Running Down a Dream". #2 is "Free Falling". Can't remember title of #3. Thought the common link would be the album "Full Moon Fever" but #3 isn't off that album.

    BTW do I get extra points for knowing "Full Moon Fever" is a Tom Petty solo album on which only a few of the Heartbreakers were used?

    *Eureka! #3 is "Great Wide Open".

  • Bruckman,
    (You may be right, I think the first two songs were Tom without his heart broken, and the last one with his breakers)
    Since you supplied unsolicited info on Tom Petty, extra points are hereby granted.
    (pushes point redeption toy box forward)
    You may redeem your points by selecting a prize from the prize box.

    Neato, I'll take the Tren/Test dispenser w/the head of Jose Canseco (these steroid jokes would work better on Getbig.com).

    Hah, the big blockhead actually won a question on pop music, thanks to many hours of being subjected to Tom Petty as a passenger in crewcabs during his career in forestry. Just had to gloat over this!

    Wuzzup next - do I have to supply a quiz question seeing as I answered the last, or will someone else do it? Because I really got nothing, or else my selection will involve some western Canadian band no one else here's ever heard of.

  • Go ahead, Bruck, if you think it will help you get into the toybox, however, I got gobs of music questions left before I run low. Frinstance ...

    Name the song/artist from this snippet of lyrics
    (please be advised that a lot of the spellings are phonetic, since I have no idea what the true spellings may be)
    extra points if you can name the movie in the recent past a portion of this song was sung by a principal actor in.

    Sambo leajeh seji moya
    Yeah, jumbo jumbo
    Way to party, oh, we go and
    Oh, jumbolah
    Sambo leajeh seji moya
    Yeah, jumbo jumbo

  • Isn't that from some Lionel Richie lyric? (Shoot, where's Slipp when we need him?)

    I think "jumbo" is actually "jambo" (Swahili for hello, greetings, welcome, etc.) although to my ear the last two lines of the lyrics quoted always sounded like:

     "Don't ya leave for California,
     Hey, mumbo jumbo!"

    Title just came to me: "All Night Long". I put my street cred at risk for that. But I can't think of a movie in which it figured on the soundtrack.

  • Well ...
    It wasn't ON the soundtrack, but the recent movie it was used in was "Rush Hour" ... (Chris Tucker stops the bad guy at the first of the movie, dances in the street and sings this song - okay, so it wasn't USED in the movie, just quoted)

    Bruckman is racking up the points - if he saves them up, he could trade them in for an mp3 of The Curly Shuffle!!

  • Perhaps I can stump Bruckman with this one ...
    Name the song, group, and movie this tune is from:

    For six long years I’ve been in trouble
    No pleasure here on Earth I find
    For in this world I’m bound to ramble
    I have no friends to help me now

    I've got this one:

    "Man of Constant Sorrow" by the Soggy Bottom Boys, from O Brother, Where Art Thou.   (I love that movie, and I have the music video for the song.)

    (I was going to put the video on Youtube, but of course a number of people already have.   Here's one of them.)   ;)

  • Okee-dokee, den, Dunrobin ... you can trade in the wax lips along with the points you've earned and pick a prize from the ThreeStooges prize box, or you can take two socks of fives. (Be advised that Bruckman has already taken the Tren/Test dispenser w/the head of Jose Canseco)
