Blue Trivia Questions

1. What is a blue moon?

From Quiz
All Things Blue

Answer: A second full moon within a calendar month

A "blue moon" occurs when there are two full moons in any calendar month. In a normal year, there are twelve full moons. A "blue moon", therefore, would be a thirteenth full moon in a calendar year. The expression is also used to describe a rare event, as in "Once in a blue moon".

2. "The Blue Danube" Waltz was composed in 1866 by Strauss. In the Strauss family there were several musicians; which one composed this waltz?

From Quiz Beyond the Blue Horizon

Answer: Johann Strauss II

"The Blue Danube", the common English name for the German "On the Beautiful Blue Danube", was composed in 1866 by the Austrian musician Johann Strauss II (1825-1899) known as Johann Strauss Jr, the Younger, the Son and "The Waltz King". After Strauss II had written it, the poet Joseph Weyl added the words. Subsequently minor changes were made to an orchestral version, which was presented in 1867 at the World Fair in Paris. Since this date it has been one of the most popular pieces of classical music. The instrumental version is the most commonly performed today. Its performance lasts around ten minutes, having a seven-minute main piece, followed by a three-minute coda. Stanley Kubrick used this song in the movie "2001: A Space Odyssey", in 1968.

3. While playing Funtrivia, my monitor suddenly went dead. (During a timed game, of course) I shook my mouse in desperation and started "turning the air blue". What in blue blazes was I doing?

From Quiz Old Farts Turn The Air Blue

Answer: Swearing

Swearing. According to Macmillan dictionary, it means "to swear many times or use a lot of rude words when angry". It seems to have been around at least since the 1800s (Farmer & Henley, Slang and Its Analogues 1890). This did happen to me once, and I ended up with a miserable three hour time score. The cat had hit the off switch on one of my power bars that was on the floor. The poor cat hid under the bed during the cursing. As "Old Farts Turn The Air Blue", is the name of this particular quiz, this question seemed appropriate. Question by Hermit007

4. [Humanities] What alternative adjective might one use to describe a movie that has been referred to, idiomatically, as 'blue'?

From Quiz All About Blue

Answer: Pornographic

The idiom 'blue movie' is indeed used when referring to a movie that is pornographic in nature. Although plenty of theories exist regarding its origin, according to "The Oxford English Dictionary", the first confirmed example of this usage was in 1818's "The Adventures of Johnny Newcome in the Navy", a poem written by John Mitford under the pseudonym Alfred Burton. The words "Blush, Pluto! Blush as brimstone blue! This bluer Town can boast like you a 'facilis descensus' too" certainly does seem to point to "brimstone blue" as a reference to sin. However, it should also be pointed out that the cheap film used to shoot early, so-called X-rated movies had a tendency to make them look bluish in colour, which may also have led to the perpetuation of this idiom.

5. Which state did Elvis sing about in 1961?

From Quiz Blue is the Colour, Football is Our Game

Answer: Blue Hawaii

Sung by Bing Crosby in the 1937 film "Waikiki Wedding", the original song, "Blue Hawaii", was written by the Oscar-winning pairing of Leo Robin and Ralph Rainger, who were also responsible for Bob Hope's "Thanks for the Memory". The Elvis film of the same name, featuring his cover version of the song, produced a soundtrack that perched at number one in the US album chart for 20 consecutive weeks. Although only 10 years older than the then 26-year old Elvis, Angela Lansbury famously played his mother in the film.

6. Blue Cross/Blue Shield Insurance Association originated separately before merging in 1982. What types of workers were they first insuring?

From Quiz Why Be Blue?

Answer: teachers, lumber workers and miners

In 1929, the predecessor of Blue Cross originated in Texas. It insured teachers for 21 days of hospital stay for $6.00 per year. The predecessor of the Blue Shield plans insured miners and lumber workers in the Pacific Northwest region of the U.S., and the first Blue Shield plan was instituted in California in 1939. In 1982, the two plans merged and grew, collectively insuring over 100 million Americans by 2014.

7. What is the astronomical phenomenon known as a "blue moon"?

From Quiz A Blue Moon

Answer: second full moon in a calendar month

A full moon occurs once every 29.53 days, roughly once a month. Occasionally two full moons may occur during a month; the second full moon of the month is called a blue moon.

8. Which shade of blue is also the name of one of the Bellflower Bunnies?

From Quiz Shades of Blue

Answer: Periwinkle

"The Bellflower Bunnies" is a French cartoon. The bunnies are named Poppy, Pirouette, Periwinkle, and Dandelion. Periwinkle is also a pale blue shade.

9. 'There'll be bluebirds over, the white cliffs of Dover...' was a popular song by Vera Lynn during World War II. Meant to uplift the spirits of the allies, what was a bit unusual about the song?

From Quiz Blue, Blue and a Bit More Blue

Answer: Bluebirds aren't generally found in England

Vera Lynn recorded the song in 1942. Written in 1941 (before the US entered the war) by Walter Kent and Nat Burton, it was designed to uplift the spirits of the Allies in a time of very heavy German bombardment. Bluebirds aren't actually indigenous to England though - they are more commonly found in America since they prefer open grassland with scattered trees. (Mind you, I guess the song wouldn't have sounded quite the same with 'they'll be pigeons over, the white cliffs of dover' would it?)

10. What is the complement of blue on the HSV Colour Wheel?

From Quiz How Do You Do, Blue?

Answer: Orange

Some say this is so because yellow is a shade that corresponds to colours with red and green lights. However, on the traditional colour theory, the complementary colour to blue was considered to be orange. Not that I know what they're talking about with either theory. If it's blue, it's blue, and doesn't send letters to anyone.

11. This element, #27, on the periodic table of the elements is known for its dark blue coloring and is an integral component of vitamin B12.

From Quiz Something Blue

Answer: Cobalt

Cobalt comes from the German word kobald meaning goblin or evil spirit. It was so named because it was difficult to mine and was dangerous to mine. This is because arsenic trioxide is often found with Cobalt. In nature, it is only found in compounds.

12. What is the real name of the gemstone often called a water sapphire?

From Quiz Blue Is for Boys

Answer: Iolite

Iolite has been called water sapphire for many years because it was often found in shallow river beds, after it washed down from the mountains. In gemology it is called Iolite in mineralogy it is called Cordierite. The two names mainly indicate whether the stone is translucent enough to be of gem quality. Usually, it is not. It has been used as a sapphire substitute for hundreds of years.

13. Who would wear "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue"?

From Quiz Bluer than Blue

Answer: A bride

Wearing one of each of these items is supposed to bring good luck to a bride on her wedding day. In ancient times blue symbolised faithfulness, purity and loyalty. Brides often wear a blue garter or have blue flowers in their bouquet.

14. Who composed the waltz, The Blue Danube?

From Quiz Do You Know Your Blues?

Answer: Johann Strauss II

Johann Strauss II composed the waltz in 1866 but it was not very successful at first. Strauss was supposed to have said, "The devil take the waltz, my only regret is for the coda-I wish that had been a success!"

15. It's a cold winter's day and there you are, curled up in your armchair, listening to your old Roy Orbison long playing vinyl records (or even a digitally remastered CD version). Where, what or who was the singer going back to "some day"?

From Quiz Blue Notes from Around the World

Answer: Blue Bayou

"I'm going back some day, gonna stay on blue bayou Where the folks are fine and the world is mine on blue bayou Oh, that girl of mine by my side the silver moon and the evening tide Oh, some sweet day gonna take away this hurtin' inside I'll never be blue, my dreams come true on blue bayou." Roy Kelton Orbison (1936-1988) was born in Vernon, Texas and showed a keen interest in music from an early age. His prolific career included a UK tour with The Beatles in 1963, induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, and brief membership of the "Traveling Wilburys" immediately before his untimely death (the other members of the band were George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne and Tom Petty). "Blue Bayou" was released in 1963 on the Monument record label.

16. What is a "priest of the blue bag"?

From Quiz Am I Blue?

Answer: A junior British barrister

Barristers are the lawyers who handle court cases in the UK; lawyers who handle estates, wills, and all the other legal mundanities are called solicitors. A person can be both a barrister and a solicitor, of course. But why is a barrister called a priest of the blue bag? Traditionally, the junior barrister's court robes are carried to and from court in blue cotton damask bags (Q.C.'s have red cotton damask bags, because they're senior counsel!) The bag has a drawstring closing and is carried over the shoulder like a duffle bag. This has been going on for centuries, and I have absolutely no idea (nor, seemingly, does anyone else) why the term "priest of the blue bag" came into use, or who first used it.

17. In Australia, someone with this hair colour is often called Blue.

From Quiz Baloo's Blues

Answer: Red

Well, they are on the wrong side of the planet... See what I mean about confusing? If you want to live dangerously, call a member of the blue rinsed set 'Blue'....

18. 'She wore blue ______?' What is the word that fits this song lyric?

From Quiz The Color Blue

Answer: velvet

It's a cool song, kinda cheesy though.

19. Hailing from Nova Scotia, Canada, this schooner was the fastest of her time and is pictured on the back of the Canadian dime?

From Quiz Feeling Blue?

Answer: Bluenose

The "Bluenose" won the International Fisherman's Trophy race held in the 1920s and '30s four times in just seven entries. She was immortalized on the Canadian dime in 1937, although the design was changed in 2001 (many older coins, of course still being in circulation). In 1955 both the "Bluenose" and her captain, Angus Walters, were inducted into the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame. The "Bluenose II," a replica of the original built to preserve heritage rather than race, was built in 1963 and sold to the province of Nova Scotia in 1971. She is now dry-docked in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, where she can be toured.

20. What was the name of the hit song sung by the band Eiffel 65 that contains the word 'blue'?

From Quiz Things That are Blue

Answer: Blue (Da Ba Dee)

"I'm blue da ba de da ba da..."

21. Argyria is a clinical condition caused by excessive exposure to which chemical element?

From Quiz Beyond the Blue Horizon

Answer: Silver

Argyria is an abnormal condition caused by ingestion or excessive inhalation of silver chemical compounds, over a long period, several months or years. In severe cases, the skin, eyes, nails, internal organs and gums of humans or other animals that have been exposed become blue or blue-gray, especially the parts exposed to sunlight. That color change is permanent. The word argyria comes from the Greek word "argyros" which means silver.

22. Which band had a 1968 hit with a heavy metal cover of Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues"?

From Quiz Old Farts Turn The Air Blue

Answer: Blue Cheer

Off their debut album, "Vincebus Eruptum", the song peaked at the number 14 position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was to be their only singles hit and has been cited by some as the very first heavy metal recording. The group was put together by Dickie Peterson in San Francisco as a power trio the year before. Question by njbruce

23. [Television] Which actress, who starred in "10 Things I Hate About You" and "Save the Last Dance" played the title character, Blue, in the online drama series of the same name?

From Quiz All About Blue

Answer: Julia Stiles

24. Which 6-time All-Star pitcher won both the Cy Young and the AL MVP in 1971?

From Quiz Blue is the Colour, Football is Our Game

Answer: Vida Blue

Vida Rochelle Blue Jr. was born in 1949 in the small city of Mansfield in northwestern Louisiana. It was just two years after joining the Oakland Athletics in 1969 that the former high school football star won both the Cy Young and MVP for the American League. In a 17-year Major League career, he played for the As, the Giants and the Royals. In 1978, he started for the NL team in the All-Star Game, thus becoming the first pitcher in Major League history to start an All-Star Game for both leagues. (He had started for the AL in 1971.) Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson and Roy Halladay have since equalled that feat.

25. What is the name of the sixth colour of the traditional rainbow?

From Quiz Shades of Blue

Answer: Indigo

The traditional rainbow colours are: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Indigo is also the name of a "Rainbow Brite" character.

26. The movie 'Blue Velvet' was written and directed by David Lynch. Produced in 1986, who was the psychotic criminal in the movie?

From Quiz Blue, Blue and a Bit More Blue

Answer: Dennis Hopper

'Blue Velvet' was an American mystery film. It was included in 'The New York Times' 10 Best Films of 1986 list upon its release and earned David Lynch an Academy Award nomination for Best Director. It was said to relaunch Dennis Hopper's career. (For those that haven't seen it, it was a bit out there.)

27. Which ancient 'cultured' culture didn't have a word for blue in their language?

From Quiz How Do You Do, Blue?

Answer: Greece

Homer was one of the most noted writers from that period of history. In his writings, for example, he would refer to the blue colour of the sea as wine black.

28. What color, when mixed with blue, creates brown?

From Quiz Something Blue

Answer: Orange

Blue and red create purple, blue and yellow create green, and blue and brown create gray. These are also the colors of the Chicago Bears, lending credence to the idea they are, in actuality, brown bears.

29. In what city did the 1980s American crime drama "Hill Street Blues" take place?

From Quiz Blue Is for Boys

Answer: The city is never identified

Never in its 146 episodes was the actual city ever mentioned. The show told the story of a police precinct in an unnamed city and explored the cases that were worked. The show was one of the first crime dramas to examine the interpersonal office relationships and the private lives of the detectives involved. The show starred Daniel J. Travanti and Veronica Hammil. The show received 98 Emmy nominations during its run on television. Much of the show was shot in Chicago.
