Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Harry the Hairy Ape

Answer: "What record?"

Ray Stevens sang a song about an ape who escaped the zoo. It jumped at people in the park. One person who saw the ape was a nearsighted disc jockey who thought Harry was a rock and roll singer. He promised to play Harry's record because Harry was "too cool". "The DJ played Harry's record." "What record?" "Shut up.

It was a hit and he became a star." Harry wore tight breechers and went on tour playing the guitar.
2. Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Answer: "Tough cookie"

Pat Benatar sang, "Well, you're a real tough cookie with a long history of breaking little hearts like the one in me. That's okay. Let's see how you do it. Put up your dukes. Let's get down to it. Hit me with your best shot." I guess she's comparing a love affair to a fist fight. Do you get the feeling she doesn't like sex? Look at her song titles. ("Sex As a Weapon", "Love Is a Battlefield", "Anxiety", "Heartbreaker")
3. Lola

Answer: "Broke my spine"

The Kinks sang, "Well, I'm not the world's most physical guy, but when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine, oh, my Lola." The song describes a man meeting a woman at a club, but she turns out to be a man.
4. Yellow Rose of Texas

Answer: "Belles of Tennessee"

This is a song which originated in the 1800s. Various singers, including Roy Rogers, have covered it and changed some of the more racist lyrics. One line that survived is "You may talk about your dearest Mae and sing of Rosa Lee, but the Yellow Rose of Texas beats the belles of Tennessee."
5. Rubberband Man

Answer: "Blow your mind"

The Spinners sang, "Hand me down my walking cane. Hand me down my hat. Hurry up and don't be late 'cause we ain't got time to chat. You and me we're going down to catch the latest sound guaranteed to blow your mind so high you won't come down." Great music telling the story of people going to see the rubberband man perform.
6. Fly Like an Eagle

Answer: "Shoe the children"

Steve Miller sings about wanting to fly like an eagle. Then he talks about the problems of the world. "Feed the babies who don't have enough to eat. Shoe the children with no shoes on their feet. House the people living in the street."
7. Love Is a Battlefield

Answer: "Making me stay"

Pat Benatar sang, "You're begging me to go. Then making me stay. Why do you hurt me so bad? It would help me to know. Do I stand in your way, or am I the best thing you've had?" Here's another bad relationship. The two people seem confused.
8. Take the Money and Run

Answer: "Robbing his castle"

Steve Miller sang, "They headed down to old El Paso. That's where they ran into a great big hassle. Billy Joe shot a man while robbing his castle. Robbie Sue took the money and run." The movie "No Country For Old Men" had a similar story to this song. (In the movie someone found money and looked for a woman while a criminal and a lawman separately looked for the man with the money.)
9. Money for Nothing

Answer: "Chicks for free"

The Dire Straits sang, "Now look at them yoyos. That's the way you do it. You play the guitar on the MTV. That ain't working. That's the way you do it. Get your money for nothing and your chicks for free." The words are said to have come from a delivery man commenting on a music video.
10. Folsom Prison Blues

Answer: "Watch him die"

Johnny Cash sang, "When I was just a baby, my mama told me, 'Son, always be a good boy. Don't ever play with guns.' But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die. When I hear that whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry." The narrator is in prison singing about how he wished his life had turned out differently.
