Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "Have you ever thrown a fistful of glitter in the air? Have you ever looked fear in the face and said, 'I just don't care'" Did you hear that? My dianthus plants are in dire need of tending so you're on your own. Who tossed some "Glitter in the Air"?

Answer: Pink

"Glitter in the Air" was one of five singles from Pink's "Funhouse" (2008) album to reach the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. As a softer, love ballad, it is in contrast to its break-up song companions from the album, including "Please Don't Leave Me" and "So What," the latter having taken top spot on many music charts. Pink, born Alecia Beth Moore, chose her stage name from the movie "Reservoir Dogs" and its character, Mr. Pink.

Fun Fact: Some species of dianthus are known as "pink" because their flowers' edges appear perforated, as if they had been cut with pinking shears.
2. "If today was your last day, if tomorrow was too late Would you say goodbye to yesterday?" How about it, did you hear that? You owe me some change and I'm not giving any answers away until you return it. So tell me, who wondered "If Today Was Your Last Day"?

Answer: Nickelback

Nickelback's "If Today Was Your Last Day" first appeared on the album "Dark Horse" (2008). It was written by guitarist and lead singer, Chad Kroeger, whose half-brother Mike plays the bass guitar. The designation "Nickelback" came from Mike Kroeger's days of working at Starbucks: the phrase "Here's your nickel back" became a stock in trade as he gave change for a cup of coffee - and voila! A rock band's name is born.
3. "Listen, late last night, I heard the screen door slam And a big yellow taxi took my girl away" You've probably heard it before, but did you hear that remake? One Corvus brachyrhynchos, two, three Corvus brachyrhynchos, four - I'll never finish this tally! Go ahead and tell me, who offered a rendition of "Big Yellow Taxi"?

Answer: Counting Crows

With a message still as relevant as when Joni Mitchell wrote and recorded it in 1970, "Big Yellow Taxi" reminds listeners that parking lots are no fit replacement for the "paradise" of nature. One of many successful covers was that of Counting Crows, with background vocals by Vanessa Carlton. After appearing in the soundtrack to the film, "Two Weeks Notice" (2002), "Big Yellow Taxi" was featured in re-releases of Counting Crows' 2002 album, "Hard Candy," where it was originally a hidden track.

Fun Fact: "Corvus brachyrhynchos" is the scientific name of the American Crow, and means "short-billed crow."
4. "I'll keep you by my side with my superhuman might Kryptonite" Did you hear that? I'm tied up with trying to locate the group who sang it; maybe you can assist me. Where can I find the band behind "Kryptonite," according to their name?

Answer: 3 Doors Down

"Kryptonite" was 3 Doors Down's first hit single, making it to number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 charts. It was recorded for their debut studio album, entitled "The Better Life" (2000), along with the single "Be Like That." Having taken their name from a dilapidated sign missing some letters, 3 Doors Down consists of three band members from Mississippi: Matt Roberts, Todd Harrell, and lead singer Brad Arnold.
5. "You would not believe your eyes, if ten million fireflies Lit up the world as I fell asleep" Now, did you hear that one? Parliament's expecting me, so I've gotta run. Who spent a sleepless night playing with "Fireflies"?

Answer: Owl City

The synthpop creations of singer and songwriter Adam Young, under the name Owl City, initially gained popularity through the Internet's social networking sites. Following two self-released albums, Owl City's "Ocean Eyes" (2009) album was released through Universal Republic to considerable success, and the single "Fireflies" achieved worldwide recognition. In the music video to this cute song, Adam Young plays an organ as a bedroom full of toys awakens to life around him.

Fun Fact: A parliament is, not only a national legislature, but also a group of owls.
6. "And I would have stayed up with you all night Had I known how to save a life" Did you hear that? I'm busy trying to break up this noisy melee - can't help you now! Who detailed the steps of "How To Save a Life"?

Answer: The Fray

"How to Save a Life" (2005) was The Fray's debut album, and its first two singles -- "Over Your Head (Cable Car)" and "How to Save a Life" -- both had impressive top-ten showings in the Billboard Hot 100. Written by The Fray's founders, Isaac Slade and Joe King, the story of "How to Save a Life" was inspired by a seventeen-year old boy recovering from drug addiction at a home for troubled youths, whom Slade met while spending a weekend there as a mentor.
7. "Hey 15, there's never a wish better than this When you only got 100 years to live" You did hear that, I hope? An enthralling hockey game broke out during the aforementioned melee, so you'll need to answer this one too. Who sang of "100 Years"?

Answer: Five for Fighting

Following the platinum success of his album "America Town" (2000) and its hit single, "Superman (It's Not Easy)," Five for Fighting (otherwise known as John Ondrasik) released "The Battle for Everything" in 2003. Its introspective single, "100 Years," held the top spot of Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart for twelve non-consecutive weeks. With its soft rock style, "100 Years" emphasizes the brevity of life: from a young man's life at the age of 15, to his starting a family in middle age, to 99's final moment.

Fun Fact: "Five for fighting" is an ice hockey term for a five-minute penalty issued to a player for fighting.
8. "Hey soul sister, ain't that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo The way you move ain't fair you know" So, did you hear that? I'm late for my date with Amtrak, so you'll have to figure it out for yourself. Who performed "Hey, Soul Sister"?

Answer: Train

With an upbeat melody accompanied by the strums of a ukulele, "Hey, Soul Sister" was written for Train by its lead singer, Pat Monahan, and a Norwegian songwriting duo called Espionage. "Hey, Soul Sister" served as the lead single for Train's 2009 album, "Save Me San Francisco" (said city being Train's hometown), and was awarded quadruple platinum status, indicating sales of at least four million copies.
9. "We can do whatever we want to Hey there Delilah here's to you, this one's for you" Did you hear that, hmm? I've got to get out of this formal attire and into something more appropriate, so I'll leave you to it. Who sang "Hey There Delilah"?

Answer: Plain White T's

Written by the Plain White T's own Tom Higgenson, "Hey There Delilah" was originally released from the album "All That We Needed" (2005) and reached number one on many charts, including the Billboard Hot 100. The title lady of this love song was named in honor of distance runner Delilah DiCrescenzo, an acquaintance of Higgenson's.

The song was used in a Sesame Street parody, where animated "T"s sing about their letter.
10. "And I don't know how I can do without I just need you now" OK, did you hear that? It's the last one, but alas, studies of the U.S. before its Civil War are calling my name. Who pined away with the song "Need You Now"?

Answer: Lady Antebellum

Crossing the bridge between pop and country music styles, Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" was successful in both forums following its release on the 2009 album of the same name. The trio of Hillary Scott, Dave Haywood, and Charles Kelley reportedly decided on the name "Lady Antebellum" after photographing antebellum plantation homes in the southern United States.

Fun Fact: "Antebellum" is an adjective meaning pre-war; in the United States, it usually refers to the era before the American Civil War. The band has since changed its name to Lady A.
