Question 1 of 10
1. This morning I argued with my young daughter. The title for track number one on the album is similar to a phrase that that a parent might say to a young child when in the middle of an argument (or meltdown!). What is it? Hint


Question 2 of 10
2. I didn't want to spend all morning arguing, so I needed to get this argument sorted as soon as I could. How did I turn this belligerent child back into the loving, caring person I know she is? Track number two's title will help here. Hint


Question 3 of 10
3. On the walk to school, my daughter sang the entire "Alphabet Song" to me. This was something I'd never heard her do before. Can you guess which emotion I felt at the time? It also happens to be the title of track three. Hint


Question 4 of 10
4. Skipping track four (with the title "You"), track five's title reminds me of something I can see in my daughter's eyes after telling her I think she's done an amazing job of learning something new. Which song is it? Hint


Question 5 of 10
5. Track six is more of a description of what my daughter and I did after taking a short time to investigate fish swimming in a roadside creek - because we really needed to get to school on time! Can you guess the song? Hint


Question 6 of 10
6. Finally arriving at school with a (now) exuberant instead of belligerent child, I realised that this daughter of mine fills me with joy and makes me feel what? Track seven is the one that will help you out with this question! Hint


Question 7 of 10
7. I head off home for a few hours before I return for after-school pick up. I can imagine my daughter in her class thinking about me and singing track eight. What's the title of this song? Hint


Question 8 of 10
8. As this quiz is about my daughter and me, I won't share the middle part of my day. Instead it's time for the walk home from school and my daughter shows me the kite she made today in class. If we went with track eleven what would she do with her kite when we got home? Hint


Question 9 of 10
9. When it comes to flying kites, it either works or it doesn't. So when we take the kite to the park, what could happen? Track twelve should give you a clue. Hint


Question 10 of 10
10. With no room in this quiz for tracks fourteen and fifteen; we will stop at track thirteen. Can you guess something my daughter and I do every day with each other? (Yes, the grammar is terrible here, but I couldn't resist!) Hint

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. This morning I argued with my young daughter. The title for track number one on the album is similar to a phrase that that a parent might say to a young child when in the middle of an argument (or meltdown!). What is it?

Answer: Let Me Talk

Reaching number eight on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs and number 29 on the UK singles chart, "Let Me Talk" was released as a single in 1980. It was one of the songs on this album to have a music video released. Maurice White shared writing credit for this song with five others.

Whilst the alternative answers were completely made up, a quick search has revealed that these song titles do exist! Toni Braxton told us "I Don't Want To" (1997), Meghan Trainor told us "No" (2016), and Weezer told us to "Go Away" (2014). Who would have thought there was so much belligerence in the music industry?
2. I didn't want to spend all morning arguing, so I needed to get this argument sorted as soon as I could. How did I turn this belligerent child back into the loving, caring person I know she is? Track number two's title will help here.

Answer: Turn It Into Something Good

"You can't hid forever just decide to make it better
Turn it into something good
Remember, you can choose, not to lose
Find your groove and be a winner."

Earth, Wind and Fire was formed by Maurice White in Chicago in 1970. There were many other members over the years. Wikipedia lists over twenty members.

The other options are songs by The Hippos ("Run Away and Hide") and Geko ("Lock the Door"). "You Just Can't Smile It Away" has been used by various artists.
3. On the walk to school, my daughter sang the entire "Alphabet Song" to me. This was something I'd never heard her do before. Can you guess which emotion I felt at the time? It also happens to be the title of track three.

Answer: Pride

"Mighty men have come and gone
But the pride lingers on"

The album "Faces" is categorized as falling within the genre of Contemporary R&B. Earth, Wind and Fire received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1995.

U2 also sang about Pride, although that was In The Name Of Love. For the other titles: "Envy" - Ash (2002), "Sadness" - Enigma (1990), "Worry" - several artists
4. Skipping track four (with the title "You"), track five's title reminds me of something I can see in my daughter's eyes after telling her I think she's done an amazing job of learning something new. Which song is it?

Answer: Sparkle

"You're my valentine
you create a rhyme all the birds can sing
our song divine
Sparkle like a star, sparkling you are
Glistening in my heart
you light my sky"

The kalimba, an indigenous African thumb piano, features on various songs released by the band. To play the instrument, the tines are plucked by the thumbs.

"Frustration" was sung by Sunny Kahlon, "Wonder" by Natalie Merchant and "Tears" by multiple artists including Clean Bandit and Ken Dodd.
5. Track six is more of a description of what my daughter and I did after taking a short time to investigate fish swimming in a roadside creek - because we really needed to get to school on time! Can you guess the song?

Answer: Back on the Road

"Time to get back on the road
Gonna leave these troubles behind
Time to carry the load
Of what my life is a true design"

This song was written by Maurice White along with Al McKay. Steve Lukather, best known for being part of the band Toto, played the guitar for this song.

The incorrect options are songs by Boston - "Hitch a Ride", Cast - "Walk Away" and Lindisfarne - "Run for Home".
6. Finally arriving at school with a (now) exuberant instead of belligerent child, I realised that this daughter of mine fills me with joy and makes me feel what? Track seven is the one that will help you out with this question!

Answer: Song in my Heart

"I've gotta song in my heart
And a feeling just for you"

The band received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015. Till 2018, Earth, Wind and Fire received 17 Grammy Award nominations, of which they won four.

For the other songs we have Sia ("Light Headed"), Pharrell Williams ("Happy") and Everclear ("Wonderful").
7. I head off home for a few hours before I return for after-school pick up. I can imagine my daughter in her class thinking about me and singing track eight. What's the title of this song?

Answer: You Went Away

"You don't know the very best part of me
You don't know cause you went away
I can't believe you want no part of me
(Ever) since you went away
There's nothing quite the same in my life"

Earth, Wind and Fire was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. Ten years later, a few of the band members like Maurice White, Phillip Bailey, Verdine White, Al McKay and Larry Dunn were inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame.

8. As this quiz is about my daughter and me, I won't share the middle part of my day. Instead it's time for the walk home from school and my daughter shows me the kite she made today in class. If we went with track eleven what would she do with her kite when we got home?

Answer: Take it to the Sky

"So I found through my desire
I could take it to the sky--Baby
Now, my heart can fly"

Two of the band's songs were inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame - "That's the Way of the World" in 2004 and "Shining Star" in 2007.

9. When it comes to flying kites, it either works or it doesn't. So when we take the kite to the park, what could happen? Track twelve should give you a clue.

Answer: Win or Lose

"Most come down, familiar ground a safer view
No more concerned with if they win or if they lose."

"Faces" was the last album that long time band member and guitarist Al McKay collaborated on before taking a break for personal and professional reasons. The album was certified Platinum in USA by Recording Industry Association of America.

For the incorrect options we went with - Bad Lieutenant "Sink or Swim" (2009); The Card "Touch & Go" (1980) and Beastie Boys "Make Some Noise" (2011).
10. With no room in this quiz for tracks fourteen and fifteen; we will stop at track thirteen. Can you guess something my daughter and I do every day with each other? (Yes, the grammar is terrible here, but I couldn't resist!)

Answer: Share Your Love

"Share your love, don't try to restrain it
Love, don't need to be afraid to
Love, everybody get together"
