3. Whose songs include "Born in the U.S.A." and "American Skin (41 Shots)"?

Answer: Bruce Springsteen

"Born in the U.S.A." is the title track of a Bruce Springsteen album while "American Skin" is from his album "High Hopes." Both songs are pointed looks at America, not altogether pleased with certain aspects of life in the U.S.A. But as he stated in his Rolling Stone magazine interview in 2007, "The American idea still has enormous power in its best manifestation... What we're going through now, we're going to be out the other side at some point."

4. Mud's crept in, Squeeze were cool for theirs, and Harry Chapin's was in the cradle. Which animal are they all singing about?

Answer: Cat

The "Cat Crept In" by Mud made it to number two in the Official UK Charts in 1974, and in 1979 Squeeze's "Cool for Cats" also reached the number two position, although in the US neither song managed to make it in to the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In 1974 Harry Chapin's "Cat's in the Cradle" only made it to number 53 in the Official UK Charts, however made it all the way to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US.

Question by player CardoQ
5. What is the only musical instrument that is played without touching it?

Answer: theremin

The theremin is played by moving your hands within the instrument's electromagnetic field. One hand controls the pitch: the closer to the pitch antenna, the higher the tone; the other hand (usually the left) controls the volume: the closer to the volume loop, the quieter.

The theremin was invented by Leon Theremin, who patented it in 1928. It can sound very eerie, or remarkably like a human voice.

6. In which Supertramp song did they ask for "kippers"?

Answer: Breakfast in America

"Could we have kippers for breakfast, mummy dear, mummy dear?" is a line from the Supertramp song "Breakfast in America" from Supertramp's 1979 album of the same name. The song peaked at 62 on the US Hot 100 chart and at nine on the UK singles chart.

Kippers, by the way, are a whole herring that has been butterflied, gutted, salted or pickled, and cold-smoked over oak woodchips.
