Music A-C: 'B' Trivia Questions

From Quiz
"Be Careful... I'm an Axe Victim!" - Be-Bop Deluxe

Answer: Public house

Be-Bop Deluxe made their first appearance as a band at 'Ye Olde Duke of Cumberland' a public house located in North Ferriby near Hull, Yorkshire, during August 1972. After rapidly building a reputation locally, Be-Bop Deluxe came to the attention of the great BBC disc jockey, John Peel and, after recording songs for Peel's show 'Top Gear' (No, not THAT 'Top Gear'!) they were signed by EMI Harvest records on the 22nd of February 1974. A reference to the venue at which the band began their career, locally known simply as 'The Duke', is made by the band in the lyric to the title track of the band's first album, 'Axe Victim' which was released in 1974.

The 1988 song "Don't Be Cruel" was the title track to Bobby Brown's second studio album.

From Quiz Blitzkid Lyrics

There is also the great lyrical take on the tagline from "Halloween"... "I'm comin' home tonight." This song is from the album "Let Flowers Die".

From Quiz The Music of Between the Buried and Me

Answer: Barbie and Ken dolls

The rest of the choices would certainly be bizarre, but the Ken doll protagonist was an unusual enough choice for a heavy metal video. Especially when he was shown traversing a city very much resembling the cardboard cut-out handiwork of small children.

From Quiz Susan Boyle Dreamed a Dream

Answer: A standing ovation

She got a standing ovation. Her voice has been called spellbinding, amazing, and magical. The song "I Dreamed a Dream" seemed to represent Susan's own life and struggle, as in these partial lyrics: "All the tigers come out at night, with their voices soft as thunder. And they tear your hopes apart, as they turn your dreams to shame..." Susan's mother had died in 2007, her siblings had moved away, she never married and her dreams did seem to be torn apart.

107. The Beloved set the listener a riddle at the start of the song. "Consider, if you will this great big question, unanswered still oh, can you spot the difference that lies between the colour _____ and the colour _____". Which colours?

From Quiz Anatomy of a Song: "Hello"

Answer: Blue and green

A complicated riddle that is answered later in the song - "What's the answer? It's plain to see - blue is blue and always will be". So now you know! Of course the difference between blue and green, as anyone who knows their primary colours will be aware of, is the colour yellow, which just happens to rhyme with "Hello". Coincidence? I think not.

Anita started performing at jazz clubs in Detroit by the time she was 16. She joined "Chapter 8", quitting school after the bass player for the band heard her sing. They had one hit and the band was dropped by Ariola Records because Anita lacked "star quality". I bet they kicked themselves years later.
