Songs With Same Word Trivia Questions

1. 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door', was released in 1973 by which Nobel Prize winning singer/songwriter?

From Quiz
Knockin' on Heaven's Door

Answer: Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan, (birth name Robert Allen Zimmerman), was born on 24th May 1941. In 2016 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature for his 'poetic expression' in songwriting. The song, 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door', was written by Dylan for the soundtrack of the film 'Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid'. Cover versions of the song have been performed by many artists, including Eric Clapton, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Guns N' Roses.

2. It actually did come easy for which artist, when his good friend George Harrison gave him a "practically complete" track and full writing credit for "It Don't Come Easy"?

From Quiz I Will Ease Your Mind

Answer: Ringo Starr

When Harrison gave the track to Starr it contained his "scratch track" (a recording used as a reference). Ringo's vocals were added with Harrison's backup. Recorded in 1971, this was Ringo's first big hit and would later be followed by "Photograph" and "You're Sixteen". Music critic Robert Christgau said that Ringo performed the song "as though he still couldn't quite believe his own good fortune". The song has enjoyed a great "shelf life" as Starr continues to include it in his "All Starr Band" tours and in 2020 Peter Frampton covered it as a tribute to Ringo Starr's 80th birthday.

3. Queen had a top twenty hit in 1991 with "The Show Must Go On". What inspired guitarist Brian May to write this song?

From Quiz The Show Must Go On

Answer: Freddie Mercury's failing health

Brian May wrote this song for their album "Innuendo" (1991) when he knew his friend Freddie Mercury was dying from AIDS. When the album was released Mr Mercury's condition was not public knowledge so the significance of the song was not apparent. The song tells of the imperative to continue on and make the most out of life while you are still able to enjoy it. In the 2011 documentary, Brian May explained "Freddie never moaned, he never said 'my life is [bad], this is terrible, I hate it.' He had an incredible strength and peace." This was deliberately placed as the final song on the album as it was generally thought that this would be the last album Mercury would be healthy enough to perform on before he died. However he remained well enough to record enough tracks for the posthumous album "Made In Heaven" released in 1995. And for Queen the show did go on, albeit without Freddie Mercury but the band was never the same. This question was penned into the quiz by Phoenix Rising's big disgrace, 1nn1, waving his banner all over the place.

From Quiz Another Damn Quiz

Answer: Tongues And Tails

"Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover" was a huge hit in 1992, from which it seemed there was no escape, and it was one of the first mainstream lesbian love songs. The album though just could not catch a break with the record buying public. Music reviewers praised the album on the whole, likening her vocals to those of Belinda Carlisle and singling out her cover of Bob Dylan's "I Want You" for special praise, but the album failed to chart anywhere, other than USA where it reached number 51 on the Billboard 200.

Answer: Last Train To Clarksville

"Last Train To Clarksville" was number one for one week on the Billboard Hot 100 for The Monkees in 1966. It peaked at number 23 on the UK singles chart in 1967.
