Songs of the Cities

"I've a pretty senorita waitin' for me down in old Mexico If you're ever in Alaska stop and see my cute little eskimo Oh my sweet fraulein down in Berlin town makes my heart start to yearn And my China doll down in old Hong Kong waits for my return Pretty Polynesian baby over the sea I remember the night When we walked in the sands of-a Waikiki an I held you oh so tight" "Travelin' Man" was written by Jerry Fuller. It was number one for two weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 for Ricky Nelson in 1961. It peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart as a double A-Side with "Hello Mary Lou" the same year.

2. MUSIC. Two musical giants teamed up 1987 in to sing about the capital of the Catalonia region of Spain. Who were this Barcelona loving pair?

From Quiz Travel Europe With Just A Song

Answer: Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe

Although many remember his track from Mercury and Caballe, it is often forgotten that this was just the title track to a complete album the pair recorded together, also called "Barcelona" (1988). Originally the album was just a hit in UK, but when it was re-released in 1992 to coincide with the Barcelona Olympics, it became a huge hit in Asia and Australia as well as Europe.

3. Which European capital city appeared in the title of a 2011 song by Jay-Z and Kanye West?

From Quiz International Cities in Music

Answer: Paris

The song, edited for radio as "In Paris" or "Paris", was taken from the album "Watch the Throne" by Jay-Z and Kanye West. The Grammy winning song made the official charts in a number of countries.

4. "London calling to the faraway towns Now war is declared and battle come down London calling to the underworld Come out of the cupboard, you boys and girls..." Which British new wave band had a hit with a song called "London Calling"?

From Quiz We Built This City On Rock And Roll

Answer: The Clash

This doom-ridden song was mainly written by Joe Strummer about the number of ways the world could end. The album, also named "London Calling", was judged by 'Rolling Stone' magazine to be the best album of 1980. The single reached number 11 on the Official UK Charts, and number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100.

5. Streets of ___ (1994)

From Quiz Round the World in Song

Answer: Philadelphia

Written by Bruce Springsteen for the film 'Philadelphia', which starred Tom Hanks and was released in 1993, 'Streets of Philadelphia' garnered an Academy Award for Best Original Song. The song was released as a single in 1994 and was a big hit for Bruce, reaching number one on the charts in several European countries as well as achieving a number nine position on the US Billboard Chart. The Boss is Springsteen's nickname.

6. Which act had an unlikely transatlantic hit in 1966 with the novelty song 'Winchester Cathedral'?

From Quiz A Musical World Tour

Answer: The New Vaudeville Band

The New Vaudeville Band came into existence when songwriter Geoff Stephens hired a group of session musicians to go into the studio to record his novelty song 'Winchester Cathedral'. Much to Stephens' surprise the record became a hit, reaching the top ten in his native UK and topping the singles chart in the USA. Such was the popularity of the single that it led to requests for the band to tour in the USA. Unfortunately, since the band did not strictly exist, being only session musicians hired for the one-off recording session, Stephens was obliged to act quickly to recruit a live band. One of the members of The New Vaudeville Band was Bob Kerr, formerly of The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. The band did go on to have a few more hit singles in both the UK and USA, but their fame was short-lived and 'Winchester Cathedral' remains by far their most famous song.

7. What was the Murray Head song "One Night in ..."?

From Quiz Cities in Song

8. "Get Back" was released by the Beatles in April 1969 and reached number one in the USA and UK. In the lyrics, which city did Jojo come from?

From Quiz Cities and Songs: Part I

9. "Vienna" is the name of a song by which British new wave band?

From Quiz It's a European City

From Quiz Songs Referencing New York

Answer: Ace Frehley

British musician Russ Ballard composed "New York Groove" which was covered by Ace Frehley on his 1978 solo album. A group called Hello was the first to record the song on their debut album "Keeps Us Off the Streets". In 1978 each member of KISS recorded a solo album and Ace included the cover tune on his album which was subsequently released as a single. The song made the US Top Twenty and became part of the group's touring lineup. During their 1996 reunion tour KISS performed "New York Groove". Songwriter Russ Ballard was a guitarist for British groups including Unit 4 + 2, The Roulettes, and Argent. His vocals can be heard on Argent's hit single "Hold Your Head Up".

12. "Viva Las Vegas" was released by Elvis Presley as a b-side single in 1964. The record enjoyed modest success without breaking into the top ten of the charts. On what movie's soundtrack did Elvis include the song?

From Quiz Hey, Baby, Let's go to Vegas - Via Song

Answer: "Viva Las Vegas" (1964)

The movie and its soundtrack had the Elvis standard of universal appeal but both were met with new "competition" - from the Beatles. Though, it took an initial back seat to this new "British invasion" the song by Elvis would go on to become one of the most identifying anthems of the city of Las Vegas. It has been used in countless markets: film, TV, advertising, spoofs, etc.

13. 'I Left My Heart in San Francisco' was the signature song for which artist?

From Quiz City Names in Song Titles

Answer: Tony Bennett

Tony Bennett sang it for the first time in 1962 at the Fairmont Hotel, on Nob Hill, in San Francisco. Tony Bennett's version was released February 2, 1962 by Columbia. It was later recorded by numerous artists, from Frank Sinatra in 1962 to Mayer Hawthorne in 2010, but remains the signature song of Tony Bennett.

14. From what tune is this lyric fragment: "From Atlanta Georgia, goin' down to the border"?

From Quiz Cities in 60s Songs

Answer: Funky Street

Soul singer Arthur Conley first started recording in 1959, but it wasn't until 1967 when, under the tutelage of Otis Redding, Conley scored with his biggest hit "Sweet Soul Music." "Funky Street" made it to number 14 on Billboard's Top 40 chart in April of 1968. Conley relocated to Europe in 1975 and lived in England, Belgium and, finally, the Netherlands where he died of cancer in 2003.

15. The Kinks had a 1967 hit record entitled '... Sunset' the missing word is a famous London railway station can you tell me which one?

From Quiz London in Song

Answer: Waterloo

'Waterloo Sunset' by The Kinks, reaching #2 in the UK charts and hitting the top 10 in much of the rest of Europe, but not charting in the US, is the story of two lovers walking across a bridge spanning the Thames, the story being sung by a person watching them. (one of their best in my opinion). The song was originally to be named 'Liverpool Sunset' but Ray Davies thought there were too many songs about Liverpool already. (Thanks to Dalgleish for that little titbit). Waterloo Station was opened in 1848 and is the largest station in the UK and with 88 million passengers in 2008 is also the busiest. Strangely it doesn't feature on the original English Monopoly board.

16. The song "Murder on Music Row" is set in what Tennessee city?

From Quiz Tennessee Towns and Cities in Song

Answer: Nashville

George Strait and Alan Jackson paired up to sing this song during the 1999 Country Music Association's awards show. Although not released as a single the song reached number 38 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks chart. The song is not about an actual murder but it mourns the "murder" of traditional country music by the modernization of the genre. It was written by Larry Cordle and Larry Shell.

17. Known as the Red City which African city features in a song containing the lyric: "Looking at the world through the sunset in your eyes"?

From Quiz Musical Cities

Answer: Marrakesh Express

"Marrakesh Express", recorded by Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1969. Already a supergroup they were about to get even bigger with the addition of Neil Young in late 1969. The rest is history.

18. What pop rock band, named after the "windy city" of the midwestern United States, had hits including "If You Leave Me Now" & "Hard To Say I'm Sorry"?

From Quiz Music Geography: US Cities

Answer: Chicago

The group were DePaul University music students who jammed their way to fame with hits from the late sixties until lead vocal Peter Cetera went solo in the eighties. The group is still intact up to this time but with several member changes along the way.

19. This supergroup released "Another Rainy Day In New York City" in 1976, only to have another of their songs blow right by it on the charts. Who were these Midwesterners?

From Quiz Songs Of The "Big Apple"

Answer: Chicago

The song was written by founding member Robert Lamm, and was released as a single in 1976 off the album "Chicago X". Disc-jockeys who played the album liked "If You Leave Me Now", and that got more heavy airplay than "Rainy Day". As a result, this song only was able to muster a number 32 placing on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and the record company rushed "If You Leave Me Now" (which eventually went to Number One on the charts) out to stores as a single less than 2 months after the release of "Another Rainy Day".

20. "From the South Bay to the Valley From the West Side to the East Side Everybody's very happy 'Cause the sun is shining all the time Looks like another perfect day." Sure, "I Love L.A.," but who sings it?
