Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Dion told his various girlfriends 'Frankly, my dear, I don't give a ...' in his 1961 hit 'The Wanderer'. Which British group, often derided as playing only three chords, took the song to number seven on the UK Singles chart in 1984?

Answer: Status Quo

'I'm the type of guy who will never settle down' and 'I kiss 'em and I love 'em 'cause to me they're all the same' are just some of the lyrics to this 'love 'em and leave 'em' song. He might live to regret all those tattoos, though. Although Status Quo have been on the receiving end of mockery for their limited style, they have had over twenty UK Singles top twenty hits, including a number one in 1974 with 'Down Down'.

They are still 'Rockin' All Over the World' in 2010.
2. Kenny Rogers has had more than his fair share of being told 'Frankly, my dear, I don't give a ...'. 'Lucille' left him in 1977, and in 1969 he suffered at the hands of which of these heartless ladies?

Answer: Ruby

'Lucille' left him with 'four hungry children and a crop in the field', while Ruby left him 'bent and paralyzed' while she swanned off to town. Stop giggling at the back there. Despite their cruelty, both ladies gave Kenny great chart success. Backed by The First Edition, 'Ruby Don't Take Your Love to Town' reached number six on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number two on the UK Singles chart. 'Lucille' was even kinder to his career, reaching number five on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the UK Singles chart.
3. Another woman who could have said 'Frankly, my dear, I don't give a ...' featured in the lyrics 'she's headed for the cheatin' side of town'. In which 1975 Eagles song did she appear?

Answer: Lyin' Eyes

A heartwarming song of infidelity and betrayal, this was written by Glen Frey and Don Henley about a young woman who marries a rich old man for his money before going off to meet her young lover at night. The single did well for the band, reaching number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 23 on the UK Singles chart.

Although The Eagles are popular in the UK, they have only reached the top ten once, with 'Hotel California' managing number eight in 1977.
4. Having been told 'Frankly, my dear, I don't give a ...' by his girlfriend in 1961, what song did Roy Orbison sing in response?

Answer: Crying

The song reached number two on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number 25 on the UK Singles chart on its first release. Roy re-recorded the song with k.d. lang in 1987, where it did rather better in the UK, peaking at number 13. Don McLean did a cover version in 1980, reaching number five on the Hot 100 and number one in Britain.

The mournful lyrics include 'I love you even more than I did before, but, darling, what can I do? For you don't love me and I'll always be crying over you'. Pass me the tissues, someone.
5. Johnny Nash in 1975 and Kylie Minogue in 1990 both reached number one in the UK with different songs with a common title. Having been told 'Frankly, my dear, I don't give a ...', where did their tears end up?

Answer: On a Pillow

The songs were both called 'Tears on My Pillow' Kylie's song had originally been a US hit for Little Anthony and the Imperials in 1958. Johnny Nash's take on the same title was a much bigger hit in the UK than in his native country, although he did have a big hit in both the US and UK with 1972's 'I Can See Clearly Now'. Kylie's song ends 'Tears on my pillow, pain in my heart, caused by you' and Johnny's ends 'Tears on my pillow, pain in my heart, you on my mind'. Did you play 'spot the difference'?
6. Charles Westover responded to being told 'Frankly, my dear, I don't give a ...' by singing 'Runaway'. How was he better known?

Answer: Del Shannon

A huge hit in 1961, reaching number one on both sides of the Atlantic on the Billboard Hot 100 and UK Singles charts. Del had an unmistakeable falsetto voice and this song was his biggest hit. Sadly, he suffered from alcoholism and depression and eventually committed suicide in 1990.

In the song, he described walking in the rain, with tears falling and suffering pain and misery. She had not only dumped him, she'd run away so he couldn't find her, so I don't think there was much chance of him getting her back.
7. An up-tempo version of 'Frankly, my dear, I don't give a ...' was 'Hit the Road, Jack', which became a hit in 1961 for which singer?

Answer: Ray Charles

Researching for this, I found that Ray's next three UK hits were 'I Can't Stop Loving You', 'You Don't Know Me', and 'Your Cheating Heart'. A rich vein of misery and one way love, if ever there was one. 'Hit the Road, Jack' reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number six on the UK Singles chart. Poor Jack - 'I guess if you say so, I have to pack my things and go'.
8. Glen Campbell had a 'Frankly, my dear, I don't give a ...' moment in 1970. He begged his woman to come back, calling her by what sweet name?

Answer: Honey

'Honey Come Back' featured Glen speaking the verses and singing the chorus, which included the words 'honey come back where you belong, to only me'. In the USA, the song reached number two on the Country Music chart, number 19 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number four on the Adult Contemporary chart.

In the UK, it managed number four on the UK Singles chart. The spoken lyrics indicate that his woman has left him for another man, with money, who can show her the 'bright lights' and buy her 'big cars' and 'fancy clothes'. Don't bother with her, Glen.

She's not worth it.
9. This duo hadn't actually been told 'Frankly, my dear, I don't give a ...', but they could see it coming in their huge 1965 hit. Here's a snippet of lyrics to help you - 'Baby, baby I'd get down on my knees for you'. Who were they?

Answer: The Righteous Brothers

The song was, of course, 'You've Lost That Loving Feeling', which made number one on both the UK Singles Chart and the US Billboard Hot 100. In the UK it has hit the top ten on two further occasions, reaching number ten in 1969 and number three in 1990. Featuring the vocal talents of Bill Medley singing bass and Bobby Hatfield singing tenor, The Righteous Brothers were one of the most recognisable duos of all time.

The song featured in the film 'Top Gun' in 1986, when Tom Cruise sang it in an attempt to impress a woman in a bar.

He'd be better advised to stick to acting, in my opinion.
10. '(That's What You Get) For Lovin' Me' is one of the best 'Frankly, My Dear, I Don't Give a ...' songs. It was recorded by Peter Paul and Mary in 1965, but which Canadian singer/songwriter wrote it?

Answer: Gordon Lightfoot

'I ain't the kind to hang around; with every new love that I've found; moving is my stock in trade, I'm moving on; I won't think of you when I'm gone'. One of the cruellest songs ever. Not only is the singer leaving, he mentions that he might come back and do it again, as soon as the poor girl's broken heart has mended.

As you can tell, these lyrics are far too happy and upbeat for Leonard Cohen. Peter Paul and Mary reached number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number two on the Adult Contemporary chart with their version.

They also recorded another Lightfoot song, 'Early Morning Rain', the same year.
