Thematic Emotions Trivia Questions

1. "In The Mood" was a signature song of what bandleader of the 1930s and 40s?

From Quiz
Prepare to Meet Your Mood!

Answer: Glenn Miller

The melody of "In The Mood" was based on an older tune called "Tar Paper Stomp", composed by Wingy Monone who recorded it in 1930. Miller was not the first to record "In The Mood". It had previously been recorded by Edgar Hayes and His Orchestra as well as Artie Shaw. Glenn Miller bought the song in 1939. Although Miller is believed to have perished in a plane crash in 1944 an orchestra bearing his name has continued to perform.

2. ANIMALS: 'lovebirds' is a word for a happy couple, but there is an actual type of bird called the lovebird. In which continent would you find it?

From Quiz Love Is All Around

Answer: Africa

Lovebirds are actually a type of small parrot, usually green in colour, although several subspecies have pink/red or grey patches or markings on their heads and faces. They get their name because of the strong monogamous bond between male and female pairs, who often sit together for long periods. They are native to Africa, with some species being native to specific countries (such as Madagascar's grey-headed lovebird, or Ethiopia and Eritrea's black-winged lovebird). Colonies of feral peach-faced lovebirds also live in Phoenix, Arizona. Lovebirds can be kept as pets, but need plenty of socialisation and toys to keep them occupied, or it affects their mental health. Black-collared lovebirds have a very specific diet of native figs which can only be found in their home territory of Equatorial Africa.

3. Gavin MacLeod played the captain on the original version of "The Love Boat". What was his character's name?

From Quiz Labor of Love

Answer: Captain Stubing

Fresh off his stint as Murray Slaughter on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" Gavin MacLeod got a starring role as Captain Merrill Stubing on "The Love Boat". He became a born-again Christian in the mid-1980s and has appeared on several Christian television shows to discuss his life and conversion. He appeared in every episode of "The Love Boat" as well as three made-for TV movies based on the show. The show ran for nine seasons, from September 1977 to February 1987.

4. The term "Going Postal" first appeared in print in an article by Karl Vick in the St. Petersburg Times. Do you know in which American state is St. Petersburg?

From Quiz Going Postal

Answer: Florida

St. Petersburg is a city in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. The St. Petersburg Times were renamed to Tampa Bay Times on January 1, 2012. In his article Karl Vick described a symposium regarding violence at work which was sponsored by the US Postal Service. In his article he mentioned that "....in some circles excessive stress is known as 'going postal'...".

5. In Douglas Adams' "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", which species of creature escaped from the Earth shortly before its destruction, leaving only the message "So long, and thanks for all the fish"?

From Quiz The QMG Gives Thanks

Answer: Dolphins

This, according to Adams, only went to prove that dolphins were far more intelligent than humans thought. He subsequently used the phrase as the title of the fourth novel in the "Hitchhiker" series of books. Question by stedman, who is very thankful for the hours of pleasure Douglas Adams' works have given him over the years.

6. Hoop-rolling, a game using a stick to roll a hoop along, has been around for a while. When did it originate?

From Quiz Fun, Fun, Fun

Answer: In ancient Greece, China and Africa (before 1000 AD)

Grecian vases from the 5th century BC depict people rolling hoops, and there are Roman texts from 2 BC that describe hoop-rolling (their term was "trochus") as a mentally and physically therapeutic activity. In China, there is evidence that the game may date as far back as 1000 BC!

7. Hope Lange played the role of Irene Sperry in which 1961 Elvis Presley film?

From Quiz Hope Springs Eternal

Answer: Wild in the Country

Elvis played a troubled young man who was referred to a psychologist, played by Hope Lange, who encouraged him to follow his dream of a becoming a writer. The film also starred Tuesday Weld, and was one of the last 'proper acting' roles for Elvis, with most of his subsequent ones being lightweight musicals.

8. Which popular song, recorded many times but most notably by the Righteous Brothers, includes the word "hungered"?

From Quiz The ''Hunger'' Quiz

Answer: Unchained Melody

"Oh, my love, my darling I've hungered for your touch A long lonely time" Also recorded by Perry Como and Jimmy Young among many others, the song was written in 1955 by Alex North and Hy Zaret. The Righteous Brothers were Bobby Hatfield and Bill Medley, and their version was produced in 1965 by Phil Spector. It's probably the best known of all of the versions and, although nominally attributed to the Righteous Brothers, the recording is actually a solo by Bobby Hatfield.

9. Burl Ives sang this happy song at Christmas: "Have a holly ______ Christmas It's the best time of the year." What word is missing?

From Quiz Laughing at Life

Answer: Jolly

When you think of someone who is jolly, you think of them laughing and happy and gay, maybe cheerful and festive too. James Caan played the role of Jolly in the movie, "Kiss Me Goodbye" with Sally Field too. It's a great comedy about Jolly coming back to haunt his wife in a good way.

10. The title for this quiz "Vanity of Vanities" comes from a quote in which book of the Bible?

From Quiz Vanity of Vanities

Answer: Ecclesiastes

"Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity" is found in Ecclesiastes 1:2. Some modern translations replace vanity with the word "meaningless". The older meaning of vanity referred to the transience of life, especially material possessions. In Milton's "Paradise Lost" there was a fair in a town called Vanity, which distracted people with all sorts of material possessions.

11. 'Don't Talk To Me (I'm Shy)' was the 'B' side to the single 'I'm In Love With A German Film Star' released in February 1981 by which British electro-pop band?

From Quiz The Seven Dwarfs: Bashful

Answer: The Passions

The new wave one-hit wonders The Passions were formed in 1978 in Shepherd's Bush, London and existed for just five years, splitting in 1983. Releasing a total of eight singles, they are best remembered for the 1981 hit single 'I'm in Love with a German Film Star' which reached its highest position at number 25 in the UK Singles Chart, was their only single release to make an impression in the charts and featured the song '(Don't Talk to Me) I'm Shy' on its 'B' side. For those much younger players who may be unfamiliar with vinyl records, this old medium had, in its 7" format, and in most cases, a single song recorded on each side! Question courtesy of Sister Seagull, not to be confused with those other Eighties new wave songsmiths, A Flock Of Seagulls.

12. I'd like to cheer you up with some rousing music, but I've picked up 'Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now'. Who brought us this happy little ditty in 1984?

From Quiz No Fun Here

Answer: The Smiths

The Smiths' vocalist was Steven Morrissy, although he used only his surname, with Johnny Marr on guitar. 'Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now' reached number ten on the UK Singles charts, although the band had only minor success in the USA. Other uplifting offerings from The Smiths include 'Girlfriend in a Coma' from 1987 and 'How Soon is Now?' from 1985. The other bands listed were all around in the 1980s.

13. The revenge taken on Michael Douglas by Glenn Close in "Fatal Attraction" could be said to sum up a certain saying. Can you complete it? It starts "Hell hath no fury like....

From Quiz "Revenge" Is In Style

Answer: A woman scorned

In "Fatal Attraction" Michael Douglas has a one night stand with Glenn Close. When he rejects her further advances she starts to stalk him and his family and becomes more and more obsessed with him. Probably the most famous scene from this 1987 film is where she kills the pet rabbit and leave it boiling on the stove. This gave us the phrase "bunny boiler".

14. The song "I Want to be Happy" comes from which 1925 musical by Vincent Youmans (music) and Irving Caesar and Otto Harbach (lyrics)? It contains the song "Tea for Two".

From Quiz The Seven Dwarfs: Happy

Answer: No, No, Nanette

Neither "I Want to be Happy" nor "Tea for Two" were in the pre-Broadway run of "No, No, Nanette", but were added for its Chicago run and became its most popular numbers. The musical had a very successful Broadway revival in 1971, with a substantially re-written book by Burt Shevelove. Question posed by stedman.

15. "Le Misanthrope" is a play that gives us one of the great classic portrayals of a grumpy old man. Which French playwright wrote it?

From Quiz The Seven Dwarfs: Grumpy

Answer: Molière

Alceste, the misanthrope of the title, tries in vain to fight against the prevailing hypocrisy of life in society and at court. Of course, he has to fall in love with Célimène, a flighty young woman who embodies all the vices that he hates. Eventually, having been convinced of the infidelity of his beloved, and having lost the considerable sum of 20,000 francs in a lawsuit in which he had justice entirely on his side, he resolves to flee from Parisian society and live in retirement in the distant provinces. However, as the curtain falls, his true friends Philinte and Éliante are determined to dissuade him, and somehow we feel that they will succeed: we grumpy old men can't really be happy with nothing to grumble about! Question created by TabbyTom, who agrees that if you can see light at the end of the tunnel it is undoubtedly a train coming the other way.

19. They fell in love even though one was betrothed to King Mark of Cornwall. Their love affair continued after the marriage, until one was banished, whereupon they both ultimately died of broken hearts. One lover was Tristan. Who was the other?

From Quiz Ten Famous Lovers

Answer: Isolde of Ireland

This woeful tale took place in medieval times. After Tristan was banished, he married Iseult of Brittany because she had a similar name to Isolde (a likely story) but, unfortunately, he couldn't perform his conjugal duties. Then he fell ill and sent for Isolde to come and cure him. To herald her arrival and her undying love, he asked that the ship's sails be white. If not, black. Alackaday, his wicked wife told him the sails were black, and Tristan died of grief. When Isolde arrived and discovered her lover was no more, she promptly died of a broken heart as well. Nobody knows who wrote this tragic tale, but its roots go far back into the mists of antiquity to the time of King Arthur. It has been retold many times since in various legends and manuscripts in many countries.

23. "We all have a love of trivia," says Patricck, "and look at each other's badges with lust, I'm sure. But, what does Matthew 5:28 say about anyone who even looks at a woman with lust in his eye?"

From Quiz Guild-y as Sin: Lust

Answer: He has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Patricck adds, "Different versions of this are: "But I tell you that anyone who even looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart." "But I say unto you, That whoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart."

Gee, I sure hope I haven't committed trivia adultery, Patricck!

24. Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill" series follows a character known as 'The Bride' as she vows to kill her ex-boss, ex-lover, and the father of her child. Who plays Bill in the films?

From Quiz 'Revenge' and the Llamas

Answer: David Carradine

Starring Uma Thurman as 'The Bride', the first film follows the main character as she begins crossing names off her list of people to exact her revenge upon. See, Bill and his Deadly Viper Assassination Squad (three women and one man, a group of trained assassins) walked in on her wedding day and killed the entire chapel before leaving her for dead. Waking up from a coma, The Bride vowed to take the lives of those involved in killing her husband and unborn child. Bill, played by David Carradine, has some cards up his sleeve though. Quentin Tarantino split this film into two parts, both released six months apart. With revenge as its main theme, Tarantino explores many different styles of film from martial arts fare to the spaghetti western and more. Both films have consistently appeared on the IMDB Top 250. Tarantino has also filmed and directed "Pulp Fiction", "Inglourious Basterds", and "Reservoir Dogs" to critical acclaim. "Kill Bill Vol. 1" and "Vol. 2" are no exception to this trend.
