Australian Music Trivia Questions

1. What kind of jolly person camped by a billabong?

From Quiz
Waltzing Matilda: Anatomy of a Song

Answer: Swagman

A swagman is an Australian term for a person of no fixed abode who travels around doing what work is available where he goes. A billabong is a pool of water that was formerly part of a river. It only fills up with water from the river at the time of a flood.

2. Which band was in a world of their own when they became the first Australian band to hit the number one spot on the UK Singles charts?

From Quiz Red Rock

Answer: The Seekers

In 1964, London was considered to be the epicenter of culture on the globe and Beatlemania was in full swing. In the midst of this revolution an Australian band, considered too pop to be folk and too folk to be rock, found popularity and fame at a level similar to the Fab Four. Their single, "I'll Never Find Another You", written by Dusty Springfield's brother, Tom, found its way to number one in the UK and Australia and number four on Billboard's Hot 100. This also made them the first Australian band to have a top five hit in those three countries. Hits such as "A World of Our Own", "Morning Town Ride" and "The Carnival is Over" soon followed and, in 1965, The Seekers found themselves at Wembley Stadium on the same bill as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Animals. In January of 1968 they were announced as the "Australians of the Year" for their achievements in music, but the following month the band broke up after lead singer, Judith Durham, announced she wished to embark on a solo career.

3. Rickie Lee Jones was the original singer of "The Horses" and the songwriter along with Walter Becker but an Aussie had a great version. Who was the singer?

From Quiz Australian Musicians' Cover Song Medley

Answer: Darryl Braithwaite

Darryl Braithwaite was the lead singer of Sherbert where he obtained a lot of success and the band's song "Howzat" became a cricket anthem. I think this is his best solo song.

4. Where, when and how did Graeme Shirley Strachan die?

From Quiz Australasian Musicians' Demise

Answer: Queensland - 29 August 2001 - Helicopter Crash

Shirley was the lead singer of Skyhooks, who hit the big time in the 1970s. Shirley was a man of many talents; he became a television personality firstly with a kid's show, "Shirl's Neighbourhood" and later as a chippy on "Better Homes and Gardens".

5. Leon Russell toured in 1973 and performed at the South Melbourne football ground. Who was the Australian support act?

From Quiz Australian Music Medley

Answer: Kush

Leon and all the band came to see the unique Jeff Duff perform a fantastic set.

6. INXS have become one of the greatest rock bands from Australia, releasing many hit albums and singles. What was their first Australian top ten hit?

From Quiz Australian Bands and Singers

Answer: Original Sin

"Original Sin" was released in 1984 from the album "The Swing".

7. Which internationally famed Australian singer was born Helen Porter Mitchell?

From Quiz Australian Music

Answer: Dame Nellie Melba

Dame Nellie was an internationally feted soprano with a powerful and lyrical voice. She performed publicly between 1886 and 1928. Her choice of stage name was derived from the city of her birth, Melbourne. Melba was made Dame Commander of the British Empire in 1918 and had dishes named after her by the great French chef Escoffier. These included Peach Melba and Melba Toast. Other accolades include her being the first Australian to appear on the cover of Time magazine (1927), and more latterly her featuring on the AUS$100 banknote. Dame Joan Sutherland was a famous Australian opera singer of the mid-20th century and although dubbed La Stupenda, her parents had been born in Scotland, just as Melba's had been. Kylie Minogue and Olivia Newton John are of course more contemporary divas. Question added by Airmale.

8. What is the name of the Australian poet who wrote the words for "Waltzing Matilda"?

From Quiz Who'll Come a Waltzing Matilda With Me?

Answer: A B 'Banjo' Paterson

In January, 1895, "Waltzing Matilda" was created in the sitting room at Dagworth Station, Queensland. Christina McPherson, the daughter of the owners, used to play a zither and 'Banjo' Patterson, a young solicitor and poet, made up the lyrics to go with a Scottish tune that she used to play.

9. Which animal was named in the TITLE of a 1963 US Number Three hit by Australian singer Rolf Harris?

From Quiz U S Hits From Australian Artists

Answer: Kangaroo

"Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport" was a song abut a dying Australian stockman that hit the Top Ten in the US in 1963. Rolf Harris offered the backing musicians who helped him record the song co-writing credits but they opted to take the session fee, thinking the song would never be a success. Rolf was working for a television studio when he wrote and recorded "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport" in the late fifties. He also invented the wobble board, the unusual instrument heard on "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport". The song became a worldwide hit and Rolf even sang the song with different lyrics with the Beatles on the BBC radio show, "From Us to You" at the height of the song's popularity. "The Rolf Harris Show" debuted on the BBC in 1967. Rolf is also a talented artist. In 2008 he sang "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport" with other Australian musicians when he was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame.

11. Which album cover depicts drawn representations of the band members alighting from an aircraft which has the band's name on the side?

From Quiz Classic Australian Album Covers

Answer: "Living in the 70's" - Skyhooks

One of THE defining albums of Australian music to emerge in the seventies, Skyhooks took the local scene by storm with their 1974 debut album. Featuring the unique high-pitched voice of Graeme "Shirley" Strachan and the clever everyday-life lyrics of bassist songwriter Greg Macainsh, Skyhooks were the sharp-edged alternative to the softer melodic sound offered by Sherbet, their rivals in the mid to late 70s period. Two singles were lifted from the album, the title track and "Horror Movie". Six tracks were banned for commercial airplay, including "You Just Like Me 'Cos I'm Good in Bed", "Motorcycle Bitch" and "Smut". Sadly, Shirley Strachan passed away in August 2001 after flying a helicopter into the side of a mountain in Queensland, not far from this author's home.
