Quiz September 2003


Recommended Posts

Gerald from Stockton, CA wins a clean and comfortable Songfacts T-shirt for his efforts.

Here are the answers:

  • What popular group was once known as Feedback?
    - U2

  • What is the last song John Lennon sang at a concert?
    - "Whatever Gets You Through The Night"
    He performed it at Elton John's Madison Square Garden show in 1974.

  • What song became a hit when it was used in the TV show Family Ties?
    - "At This Moment" by Billy Vera and The Beaters
    I think Nick and Mallory got hot and heavy to it in that PG-rated kind of ABC sitcom way.

  • Among bands with at least one set of twins, which has sold the most albums worldwide?
    - The Bee Gees
    Nelson was the most popular guess. Milli Vanilli was wrong for too many reasons to detail here. The Olsen Twins was a great guess, but wrong.

  • What baseball player who is still playing recently released an album?
    - Bernie Williams of the New York Yankees
    He's lost a step in center field, but his music career is showing promise. Apparently he's a pretty good guitarist.

  • Who are the only 2 singers in both the Rock and Country Hall of Fame?
    - Elvis and Johnny Cash
    This question was posted before Johnny Cash died, and we'll take this opportunity to say that he stayed true to himself, his fans, and his music. That's a full life. Good guesses for this one included Hank Williams, Chet Atkins and Willie Nelson.

  • What still-active band has a name that means "A tendency to fade from sight"?
    - Evanescence
    Blur, although and excellent guess, was wrong.

  • What was the last comedy song to hit #1 in the US?
    - Disco Duck by Rick Dees and his cast of idiots
    Dees is a Los Angeles disc jockey who is still going strong. He had this hit in 1976 and still occasionally makes fun of it on his show. Dees was host of the TV show Solid Gold in 1984. We don't count "Macarena" as comedy, but give a few of you credit for trying.

  • What pop singer had a role in the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding?
    - Joey Fatone from 'N Sync

  • What is the only US #1 hit released by an artist who was not signed to a record label?
    - "Stay" by Lisa Loeb
    It became a hit when it was used in the movie Reality Bites

  • Tiebreaker: How many miles did Sara run in August?
    - 56. Many of them fast.

Thanks to everyone who took the quiz, and be sure to take the new one
