Color Songs Trivia Questions

1. Which singer sings the song "Black or White"?

From Quiz
Songs With a Color in the Title

Answer: Michael Jackson

Michael Joseph Jackson was an American singer and songwriter, and dancer. Some of Michael Jackson's albums include "Thriller", "Got to Be There", "Invincible", and "Music & Me". At the end of 1992, "Black or White" ranked number 14 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The song was written by Michael Jackson and Bill Bottrell. The genre is pop rock and hip hop.

2. What colour did Bobby Rydell call "magic", Ram Jam call "Betty" and the Rolling Stones want to "paint"?

From Quiz The Colour of the Song

Answer: Black

Ram Jam had "Black Betty", the rolling Stones wanted to "Paint it Black" and Bobby Rydell recorded a rock version of "That Old Black Magic". Ram Jam's recording of Leadbelly's "Black Betty" in 1977 was their only hit. "Paint it Black" was the Stones third Billboard Hot 100 number one hit and their sixth in the UK and fourth in Australia. "That Old Black Magic" was written by Harold Arlen with lyrics by Johnny Mercer written with Judy Garland in mind. Judy recorded the song in 1943. There are over 100 recordings of the song with versions by, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Billy Daniels, Sammy Davis Jr, Ella Fitzgerald, Dickie Valentine and Rod Stewart to name a few. The song was famously sung by Marilyn Monroe in the 1956 movie, "Bus Stop".

3. What sort of Monday did New Order sing about?

From Quiz Variations on a theme

Answer: Blue

One of their most popular songs ever, and one of their highest charting, New Order's "Blue Monday" is, at its heart, a sombre, almost funereal, in ways song with a muttered vocal in ways and a heavy, thumping disco beat that made it a favourite at clubs. Many people who are not fans of the band (including me) will tell you they like this song, such is its widespread appeal.

4. Which colour did AC/DC tell us to sink in their 1985 song?

From Quiz If My Crayolas Could Sing

Answer: Pink

"Sink the Pink" was released as a single in 1985 off the album "Fly on the Wall". The album did fairly well for the band, reaching position seven on the "UK Album" chart and number four on the "Australian Kent Music Report Albums" chart in 1985. "Sink the Pink" was also featured as part of the movie soundtrack for the 1986 movie "Maximum Overdrive" starring Emilio Estevez, directed by Stephen King.

5. Which tune was a hit by Sammy Turner in 1959? [Think about an herb of the mint family.]

From Quiz Colorful Oldies, Part II

Answer: Lavender Blue

"Lavender Blue" was hardly a new song. There were at least four versions that were popular in 1926. This version made it to Number Three on Billboard's Top 40 Hits. Turner's only other hit was "Always," Number 19 in 1959. [Lavender is a herb of the mint family.]

6. In Billboard's Top 40 Hits, this song was charted by The Platters at Number 36 in 1960. It was also recorded by Bing Crosby in 1935. [Soupy knows.]

From Quiz Colorful Oldies

Answer: Red Sails in the Sunset

Guy Lombardo (who, with his Royal Canadians played "Auld Lang Syne" on New Year's Eve for decades) also recorded it in 1935. The Platters, who were the only male group in the 50s to include a female singer, had many top hits, including at Number One in 1958 both "Twilight Time" and "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes." [Soupy Sales was a comedian best known for his children's television show "Lunch With Soupy Sales."]

7. This band put their album, "Dark Side of the Moon" on the Billboard Top LP chart for 741 weeks. The band's two word name consists of a color and a man's first name. What is the man's name that goes with the color?

From Quiz The Colors of Classic Rock Music, part 1

Answer: Floyd

Pink Floyd was founded by Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Roger Waters, and Richard Wright. David Gilmour joined in 1967. Both Barrett (2006) and Wright (2008) have passed away. Gilmour and Waters have a rocky relationship, so there is little hope of any new Floyd materiel being released.

8. What color is missing from these song titles? Rush songs: "___ Sector A", "___ Barchetta", "___ Lenses", "___ Tide" Neil Diamond and UB40 song: "___ ___ Wine"

From Quiz Colorful Songs

Answer: Red

"Red Barchetta" tells a story set in a dystopian future where vehicles have been prohibited by "the Motor Law". The singer's uncle has a red barchetta in prime condition and hidden at his farm. Each week, the singer sneaks out to his uncle's and goes for a joyride in the countryside. A couple of police see him and give chase. However, their aircars are wide, and cannot follow over a narrow bridge. The singer then returns the car back to his uncle's farm. "Red Red Wine", written by Neil Diamond in 1967, is sung from the point of view of someone who can only forget his troubles by drinking red wine. The song reached number 62 on the American Charts. In 1983, UB40 recorded a reggae version of the song.

9. There were 43 dead, 467 injured, over 7,200 arrested and more than 2,000 buildings destroyed. Canadian Gordon Lightfoot wrote and recorded this song that made these facts clear. What song is it?
