Here are the answers to the quiz:

Nelson - "(Can't Live Without Your) Love And Affection" (#1)

Styx - "Babe" (#1)

2. What group that released a song in 2011 which became a Top-10 U.S. Hot 100 hit has a female drummer?

Neon Trees

Their song, "Everybody Talks" peaked at #6 in the U.S.

3. What different songs with the same title were U.S. Hot 100 #1 hits - first in the '80s with an all-male group, then in the '90s with a female solo artist?

"The Power Of Love" - Huey Lewis & the News (1985), Celine Dion (1994)

4. What U.S. #1 hit (Hot 100) features a video with a rapping cat?

"Opposites Attract" by Paula Abdul

5. What singer, who released her first album as a teenager, released her 13th studio album in 2011?

We had a problem with this question.

The question should have read:

What singer, who released her first album as a young child, released her 13th studio album in 2011?

The answer would have been LeAnn Rimes.

Since the word 'teenager' was used by mistake, and LeAnn Rimes released her first album well before she was a teenager, there is no correct answer for this question.

Therefore, we are giving every entrant credit for question #5.

6. What popular singer plays an alcoholic brother on a few episodes of an American TV sitcom?

Josh Groban - he appeared on The Office.

7. Other than Spinal Tap, what famous band used a replica of Stonehenge as part of their stage show?

Black Sabbath

8. What popular '80s group had a male lead singer that used just his last name and went on to a successful solo career?

The Smiths (Morrissey)

9. What Rock group made a video in the '80s with one member dressed as Napoleon and another as a cowboy?

Van Halen - "Pretty Woman"

10. Who recorded the first rap album to top the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart?

Beastie Boys - Licensed to Ill

Their album reached the top on 3/07/1987 and spent seven straight weeks at #1.

Congratulations to Brian and thanks to all who entered this month's Mighty Songfacts Trivia Quiz. :thumbsup:
