Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What did Leroy Brown have in his shoe?

Answer: a razor

"He got a .32 gun in his pocket for fun/He got a razor in his shoe," from "Bad Bad Leroy Brown," recorded by Jim Croce.
2. Sing along with Queen: "I see a little silhouetto of a man/Scaramouche Scaramouche will you do the ________?"

Answer: fandango

I wonder if Scaramouche even knows HOW to do the fandango. From "Bohemian Rhapsody," recorded by Queen. A very weird tune, but Wayne and Garth liked it!
3. Sing along with Kansas: "Lay your weary head to rest/Don't you cry __ _____."

Answer: no more

Kansas wasn't exactly grammatically correct when they did this one, "Carry on Wayward Son." But then would "You aren't anything but a hound dog" be remembered today?
4. How did "Looking Glass" describe Brandy's work?

Answer: layin' whiskey down

"And there's a girl in this harbor town/And she works layin' whiskey down./They say, 'Brandy, fetch another round.'/She serves them whiskey and wine." Big hit of 1972.
5. Sing along: "A bottle of red/A bottle of white/It all depends upon your ________." Fill in the blank.

Answer: appetite

Billy Joel's great "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant," featuring the story of Brenda and Eddie, from his album "The Stranger."

"Fire and Rain" was a huge hit for Mr. Taylor in 1970.
7. Sing along with Carole King: "My life has been a tapestry of rich and _____ ___." Fill in the blank.

Answer: royal hue

The next line is "An everlasting vision of the ever-changing view." More of Miss King's brilliant lyrics. From "Tapestry," on the blockbuster hit album of the same title.
8. Sing along with Elton: "All the young girls love Alice/________Alice they say." What word or words would fit the blank?

Answer: tender young

All the girls seem to want their turn with Alice, but "wait 'til my husband's away." From "All the Young Girls Love Alice."
9. Sing along with Gilbert O'Sullivan: "We may as well go home/As I did on my own/_____ _____ _________."

Answer: alone again naturally

And that of course was the song's title. One big hit from 1972 that wouldn't go away for months and months.
10. Sing along with "All of them had hair of gold/Like their mother/The youngest one __ _____."

Answer: in curls

"The Brady Bunch" ran from 1969 to 1974 for a total of 117 episodes. Bet you loved 'em all! Hope you enjoyed my quiz. See you next time. Mickey.
