Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "April gave us _____"

3. "We stood on the crest of _____"

"Seven Separate Fools" was the eighth studio album from Three Dog Night, which featured the song "Pieces of April." The album was released in 1972 in the US, reaching number six on the Hot 100. Other tracks from the album are "Black and White" (a Pete Seeger song), "Freedom for the Stallion" (Allen Toussaint), and "Prelude to Morning" (Jimmy Greenspoon).
4. "You stand beside me _____"

Answer: now

"You stand beside me" is from the fifth verse, second line of the song. The whole verse is as follows:

"But it must be then that
You stand beside me now
To make me feel this way
Just as I did in April
But it's a mornin' in May."
5. "Beneath an oak that blossomed _____"

Answer: green

Three Dog Night is an American band that got together in 1967. The original line-up consisted of Cory Wells, Chuck Negron, Danny Hutton, Michael Allsup, Joe Schermie, Floyd Sneed, and Jimmy Greenspoon. The band's debut album, titled "Three Dog Night," was released and recorded in 1968 in the US.

On the US Billboard 200, the album peaked at number 11 on the chart.
6. "But it's a mornin' in _____"

Answer: May

"It's a mornin' in May" is from the third verse, fourth paragraph.

The song is the story of the memories of a broken love affair that began in April and ended in May. Was this a one-sided love affair? You decide!
7. "But it must be then _____"

Answer: that

"But it must be then" is the first line from verse five of the song.

There was a slight problem recording the track "Pieces of April." Chuck Negron, the singer for Three Dog Night, claims that two members of the group, Danny Hutton and Cory Wells, left London before the "Seven Separate Fools" album was finished, so Negron had to record the album's last two tracks, which included "Pieces of April," without them. This problem also happened in 1969 with the song "Try a Little Tenderness," when two of the band members were not present.
8. "We would laugh it _____"

Answer: off

"We would laugh it off" is a line from the second paragraph's last line.

Personnel from the album "Seven Separate Fools," in which the song "Pieces of April" is featured, are Mike Allsup on guitar, Jimmy Greenspoon on keyboards, Danny Hutton on lead vocals (tracks 1, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10), background vocals, Chuck Negron on lead vocals (tracks 4, 5, 6, 9, 11), background vocals, Joe Schermie, bass guitar; Floyd Sneed, drums; and Cory Wells, lead vocals (tracks 2, 5, 7, 8, 9), background vocals.
9. "I keep them in a memory _____"

Answer: bouquet

"I keep them in a memory bouquet" is from the third paragraph, second line.

Danny Hutton, Chuck Negron, and Cory Wells are all vocalists for the band. There are not many bands that have three lead singers in one band. I can think of a few, but they're sparse. The three singers were not known for playing musical instruments, although Cory Wells could play the guitar and harmonica.
10. "Not really knowin' what it _____"

Answer: means

Not really knowin' what it" is the last line in the lyrics, paragraph four.

Numerous other artists have recorded "Pieces of April," most notably Andy Williams, who included the song on his 1972 album "Alone Again (Naturally)." In 2017, Johnny Mathis included a bonus version of the song on his CD "Me and Mrs. Jones." Twiggy also covered "Pieces of April" for her 1976 self-titled album. Twiggy was a model in the 1960s.
