  • Hints for Quiz B:
    Only #1 is music related
    #2, #3 and #4 are in reference to a TV show in which #1 is the theme song

    As for Quiz A - Bruckman is correct.
    I wonder just exactly which works of these masters would be wafting from her room -
    I have a few suggestions ...

    1. Wagner ... would HAVE to be "Ride of the Valkyries"
    2. Beethoven ... my guess is his Symphony No. 6, "The Pastoral"
    3. Puccini ... his opera "La Bohème" would be a good choice
    4. Verdi ... perhaps "La Forza del Destino" would be a telling tune
    The tacks won't come out! Well, they went in ... maybe they're income tacks.

    Other Hints for Quiz B:
    #2 can be further refined to mean "a completely naked person in the UK", and the meaning is the same as the title of of a 1997 movie.
    #4 Le Cirque Du Soleil is a veiled reference to barnstorming as a popular form of entertainment in the 1920s in which stunt pilots would perform tricks with airplanes, often in groups.

  • OK, B is "Monty Python's Flying Circus".

    I was trying to figure out how the Liberty Bell fit into this (#2 is obviously a ref. to "The Full Monty" though I think you may have given the game away w/the assistance). Then I remembered the opening music playing under the opening titles is John Philip Sousa's "Liberty Bell March", et voila! - there ya go.

  • Bruckman wins the cupie doll ...
    Here's the song the 2. Monty 3. Python 4. Flying Circus troop used for their theme song (minus the "squished-with-a-giant-foot" sound at the end. I suppose there are many that have never heard the entire song.

  • Put on yer thinkin' caps!
    This next quiz question refers to the 1964 movie Baby The Rain Must Fall starring Steve McQueen as a brawling, guitar-pickin' ex-con who tries to start over with his wife and daughter, but runs into one roadblock after another.

    The quiz question is, name the artist who sang the theme song for that movie. (posted below)
    Extra points if you can name the trio he sang with before becoming a solo artist.

  • Hard to come up with hints for this one ... but here goes:

    This artist began his career with a folk trio in 1959 who had contemporaries such as The Kingston Trio and The Weavers, and remained with the group until 1976, despite launching his own solo career in the mid 60's. The group began by performing at the Hungry-I in San Francisco after the trio had honed their act from a small club in Aspen, Colorado called The Limelite.

    I'll post some pics from the web as soon as I can resolve some upload problems I'm having at present.

  • Its time for the next quiz ...
    The topic is musical "duos" ... List the GROUP name from the following first names of the band members:

    1. Phil and Don
    2. Dick and Tom
    3. Paul and Art
    4. Daryl and John
    5. Lester and Earl
    6. Per and Marie

    Speaking of Phil and Don ... can anyone name the popular song in 1976 that these first names were used in?

    2. The Smothers Brothers
    3. Simon & Garfunkle
    4. Hall & Oates
    5. Flatt & Scruggs
    6. Roxette
    Admittedly I had to look that last one up...never heard of them. Is the "Phil & Don" song McCartney's "Let 'Em In"?

  • Roxette had a short burst of popularity in the early 90's with their hit songs It Must Have Been Love and Joyride, then faded into the woodwork.

    The song that references "Phil and Don" is indeed Paul McCartney's tune Let 'Em In.

  • Since garystooge knocked that one out in jig-time, we'll press on ... and we'll also stick with the 90's:
    Name the song/group from this snippet of lyrics:

    You say to me I don't talk enough
    But when I do I'm a fool
    These times I've spent, I've realized
    I'm gonna shoot through
    And leave you

  • *Hints*
    If you were born between 1973 and 1975, you would’ve been an acne-ridden teenager when this hit song was a chart topping single in 1991. The band, consisting of five young British males, formed in 1989 in Cinderford, England. All five were “veterans” of the local music scene before founding the band. The 1991 album Schubert Dip was also successful, spawning another hit single in Lies. (The LP also garnered considerable press when Yoko Ono objected to the group's use of a voice sample of Mark David Chapman, the murderer of John Lennon; the offending sound bite was later removed from future pressings.)

    Okay ... the answer to the quiz:
    The title of the song is Unbelievable performed by the group EMF in 1991.
    Here's a music video of the tune, and ...
    [youtube=425,350]kV1mmggE29I[/youtube]

    ... an mp3 of the same tune.

  • Here's an "Oldie-But-Goodie" (in the true sense of the phrase) that will test your brainpower ...

    Give the name of the song (easy part) AND the name of the group that performed it (hard part), and try to restrain from using the internet instead of your memory for a few hours before answering.

    Quadruple-Extra-Bonus-Points if you can name the year the song was released!

  • Hint#1:
    After four albums for Roulette, the group -- which was as known for its between-song comedy and banter as it was for its repertoire -- broke up in 1964.

  • I'll make a post just so the 17th won't be devoid ... what a bunch of dilatory, indolent and languid folks you are! (that takes care of my quota of big words for the day)  ;D  :D

    Okay ... since only three of you even bothered to download the tune, I'll give ya the answer.

    The group is "The Playmates" ...
    The Playmates were a late 1950s vocal group lead by pianist Carl Cicchetti and drummer Donny Conn (Donald Claps) of Waterbury, Connecticut. Signed to Morris Levy's Roulette Records in 1958, they released two notable singles -- Joanne and Don't Go Home -- before having a surprise #4 hit with the tempo-changing novelty record Beep, Beep (The Little Nash Rambler) lyrics that became a regular spin for Dr. Demento.

  • Sorry, I wanted to try, but I couldn't get the song to play. I had a problem with my computer. Too much security. I finally got fed up and straightened it all out . I uninstalled the "Webroot", "AdAware", "Widows Defender" and the biggest pain in the ass of all "Norton".  I then downloaded "McAfee", everything is all right now.

  • You can easily guess who sang this song ... but tell me the TITLE! (not a hard chore)
    (extra points for for knowing which tune was covered ... and TRIPLE extra points for knowing the album name of the cover singer.)

  • ... a piece of yak, er ... cake. The song is a parody of Leader of the Pack by The Shangri-La's.

    The Cosby tune came from my mother's LP title "Silver Throat - Bill Cosby Sings". The Little Ole Man song is the best one on the album. All the rest of the songs I classify as a "Tin Throat".

    BTW ... some interesting facts about The Leader of the Pack, as reported by a quick search of the net:

    This is a tale of young love and parental disapproval.
    The sound of the motorcycle is the engineer's Harley Davidson.
    A young Billy Joel played the piano on this song.
    The metal band Twisted Sister covered this song in 1985 on their album Come Out And Play.
