Cody from Great Neck, NY wins a clean and comfortable Songfacts T-Shirt.
Here are the answers:
What song mentions a "Real Estate Novelist"?
- "Piano Man" by Billy Joel
What famous band has a member who is a pilot and owns a collection of classic airplanes?
- Pink Floyd
Dave Gilmour owns a company called Intrepid Aviation. A great answer on this one was Iron Maiden, since Bruce Dickinson is a pilot. To the best of my knowledge, he does not own classic planes. (note - this was Cody's guess, and the only one he got wrong. If we gave credit for Maiden, it would not have changed the outcome.)
What famous singer has a child named "Paris"?
- Michael Jackson
What was the last Australian group to have a #1 hit in the US?
- Savage Garden
They hit #1 in 1998 with "Truly, Madly, Deeply."
Worldwide, what is the best-selling album recorded in the '60s?
- Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles
The guess that showed up more than a few times was The White Album.
What famous singer played the role of a well-known actress in a 2004 movie?
- Gwen Stefani
She played Jean Harlow in The Aviator.
What famous guitar player died in a plane crash in 1982?
- Randy Rhoades
What popular group had a member named Keren?
The group is much more popular outside the US, so this was a tough one for folks in The States.
What famous song has 3 separate numbers in the title?
- 25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago
What hit from the '80s has a title that is a Greek word?
It's Greek for "Lord, have mercy." By far, the most popular wrong answer was Xanadu. That ain't Greek.
