Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. It's 1962. Arthur Alexander's girl says the other guy loves her more. What can he do? Every girl breaks his heart. So Anna, do which of these?

Answer: Anna (Go to Him)

"Anna (Go to Him)" written and recorded by Arthur Alexander, was released by Dot Records in 1962, climbing to #10 on the Rhythm and Blues listings, but it became more famous in 1963 as a Beatles song, when Lennon changed Alexander's soulful resignation into deep pain. This is one of 11 songs recorded in one session with Lennon's voice roughened by a bad cold. The Beatles covered "Anna" on their debut album, "Please Please Me".

An unusual achievement, Alexander wrote songs covered by three greats--Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones and the Beatles. Although the title is "go to him" the lyrics are "go with him": "...every girl that I ever had, Just broke my heart and then left me sad...But if he loves you more, go with him, Anna, go with him..."
2. 1972: Bon Scott sings about this girl with "problems" whose daddy goes after him with a shotgun. Which girl's daddy is packing? (Her namesake took a rocket to the moon).

Answer: Annabelle

"Annabelle" was written in 1972 by lead guitarist Mick Jurd and keyboard player John Bisset while in their group Fraternity. Annabelle sends the singer a telegram warning that her father has a gun and is coming after him. Some sources claim the song later came true when Bon Scott (more famously of AC/DC) slept with a teen. Her father attacked Scott and beat him badly. Scott died in 1980 when a lady named Alistair put him into her parked car to sleep off another drinking binge, but he never woke up.

"...she said her daddy's on his way, with a loaded shotgun, he'll be arriving here today. Annabelle's got problems, you know the doctor's can't repair..."

The band Rocket to the Moon also wrote a song called "Annabelle". She's pretty, but superficial and untrustworthy.
3. Helen Reddy gave us which 1974 odd, eerie, hit song about a girl, her radio, and a missing young man?

Answer: Angie Baby

In 1974 Alan O'Day's "Angie Baby" was offered to Cher, but Australian Helen Reddy took it instead, to number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Angie is a "little touched", so her only companion is the radio. One day a boy "with evil on his mind" seems to be sucked into Angie's creepy reality, via her radio.

"Lovers appear in your room each night, And they whirl you across the floor, But they always seem to fade away, When your daddy taps on your door...It's so nice to be insane, No one asks you to explain, Radio by your side, Angie baby."
4. "Sometimes I wish I could stop you from talking..." sings Elvis Costello, about a floozy who takes up with another man. Frustrated and angry, his 'aim is true'. Whom does he seemingly want to kill?

Answer: Alison

In 1977 new wave Elvis Costello debuted with the album "My Aim is True". His song "Alison" didn't chart then, but it eventually made Entertainment Weekly's top ten Costello songs. His work is by turns called cynical, clever and prickly (Allmusic.com), and clearly he's unhappy with Alison, but Costello denied this song suggests murder, despite its famous line: 'I think somebody better put out the big light, Cuz I can't stand to see you this way...".

"My Aim is True" came out before Costello formed his backing band the Attractions. It was Clover who accompanied him in 1977.
5. 1982: Kid Creole & the Coconuts released "Annie, I'm Not Your Daddy". Kid sings of a woman's "search for love" that just got her "used" and pregnant. What's Kid Creole's real name?

Answer: August Darnell

August Darnell released his song "Annie, I'm Not Your Daddy" in 1982, on the album "Tropical Gangsters". While far surpassed by Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" (January, 1983), Annie was a hit for Kid. The tone is smooth, upbeat pop, with a hint of sad compassion in the lyrics for the mother who "had a fall or two", and wistful explanation to the little girl. Conversely, his video features the mother as a floozy Marilyn Monroe look-alike.

August Wilson was a prize-winning American playwright, August Mobius a German astronomer, and August Strindberg a Swedish playwright.
6. 1991: Bob Dylan. "I tried my best to love you but I cannot play this game", he sang. "Oh, ______, do I need your permission to turn the other cheek?"

Answer: Angelina

"Angelina" was written in 1981 but not released until 1991 ("The Bootleg Series, Rare and Unreleased"). Like most songs Bob Dylan, the lyrics are haunting and obscure, the melody stirring. The meaning? Some say this is about Bob, Sara and their divorce; or is it about Christianity? Maybe it's a message derived from Bob's grief, on the pain of the human condition? Whichever, he describes "the body of a woman well endowed" that has the "head of a hyena". That can't be good.

"Farewell, Angelina" is another Bob Dylan song recorded only once by him, in 1965, also released on the 1991 bootleg album. Perhaps a simple love and break- up ballad, it was often sung by Bob's one-time love and mentor, Joan Baez.
"Call me any name you like, I will never deny it, Farewell Angelina, The sky is erupting, I must go where it's quiet...".
7. Sarah McLachlan felt blue when she dated her best friend's former boyfriend. Meaning "God's Gift" what was her friend's name, the title of a 1997 song?

Answer: Adia

In her 1997 album "Surfacing" Sarah Mclachlan sings "Adia". It's about feeling empty and down, because her choice to date (and then marry) her best friend's ex put their friendship on the rocks. That's bluesy and floozy, right there.
8. Silverchair's "Ana's Song" by lead singer Daniel Johns gives a name to his bluesy floozy obsession. Which disorder do we most often associate with too-thin women?

Answer: Anorexia

In 1999 the Australian band silverchair (who prefer their name in small letters) released a song by lead singer Daniel Johns. "Ana's Song" expressed his blues, and his addiction to the eating disorder Anorexia, which he named Ana.

"And I miss you now somehow, And I need you now somehow...And you're my obsession. I love you to the bones, And Ana wrecks your life..."
9. 2001: "Adrienne" just spends your money and takes advantage of you. Which band laments "all the crazy things you've been putting me through"?

Answer: The Calling

"Adrienne" was released in 2001 by The Calling. Though Adrienne is not a real person, the band said everyone has had a person in their lives who is a seducer and taker--a floozy--and you "can't get over them no matter how much you try". In their video all the singers and a long line of lip-synching folk--representing the many everyday people who get taken by these types--fall down in the end.

"...once again you used me".
10. 2009: Jarvis Cocker has a bad case of the wants over this woman named in the title of his song. Who is "mobile poetry"?

Answer: Angela

"Angela" appears on the album "Further Complications" (2009) by Jarvis Cocker. The album features "thwarted lust" which Cocker told Q Magazine "is something I struggle with" (June, 2009). Angela, he sang, is "an unfinished symphony" and "mobile poetry".

Cocker told New Musical Express that he was crooning his desire for Angela via the new song when he noticed his keyboard player Simon looking strangely. "Why are you singing about my girlfriend?" Simon asked. Jarvis had forgotten that Angela was dating Simon. Sounds like Jarvis was the floozy, here?
