Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Perhaps you've never heard of Los del Río, but in 1995, the "Bayside Boys Mix" version of one of their songs reached the number one spot on multiple charts, including the US Billboard Hot 100 and the Eurochart Hot 100 Singles. Which one?

Answer: Macarena

The original version of "Macarena" was released in 1993 on the album "A mí me gusta", but it was "Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix)" from the album "Macarena Non Stop" that got the most attention and topped the charts.

Antonio Romero Monge and Rafael Ruiz Perdigones formed Los del Río in 1962 in Spain. Their musical genre and style can be described as Flamenco pop and Rumba flamenca, but the duo also has some songs that are 'sevillanas', which is a traditional style of music and dance from Seville, in Spain's Andalucía region.
2. The 1981 hit "Tainted Love" reached the top of the UK Official Charts, the only one of this group's songs to reach the top ten in the US. Which group, who also had top 40 hits in the UK with "Bedsitter" and "Say Hello, Wave Goodbye", sang this song?

Answer: Soft Cell

"Tainted Love", "Bedsitter", and "Say Hello, Wave Goodbye" all came from Soft Cell's 1981 album "Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret". While all three songs made it to the top five, "Tainted Love" was the only one to make the number one spot on the UK Official Charts. "Bedsitter" made it to number four, and "Say Hello, Wave Goodbye" made it to number three. "Tainted Love", a cover of the 1964 Gloria Jones song, made it to number eight on the US Billboard Top 100. Since they only had one top ten hit in the US, they are often found on lists of one-hit wonders, but the group did have more success in the UK, with three top ten albums and five top ten hits. Additionally, their "Memorabilia"/"Persuasion" single did break the top 40 in the US in 1981, but it only made it to number 35.

Soft Cell was a synthpop duo from England, with Marc Almond as the vocalist and David Ball as the instrumentalist. The duo stayed together from 1978 until 1984. The duo came back together for a few reunion releases in 2001-2002 and again in 2018.
3. Which 1982 song by Dexys Midnight Runners reached the number one spot on both the UK Singles Chart and the US Billboard Top 100?

Answer: Come On Eileen

Dexys Midnight Runners actually had two number one singles, "Geno" from their debut album "Searching for the Young Soul Rebels" (1980), and "Come On Eileen" from the album "Too-Rye-Ay". "Geno" made it to the top of the UK Singles Chart, but only for two weeks, while "Come On Eileen" was more successful and topped the UK Singles Chart and the US Billboard Top 100, as well as some others.

Dexys Midnight Runners was formed in 1978 by Kevin Rowland (Carlo Rolan) and Kevin "Al" Archer. They were soon joined by Pete Williams, John Jay, Pete Saunders, "Big" Jim Paterson, Steve "Babyface" Spooner, and Geoff "JB" Blythe. The band underwent various changes in membership before disbanding in 1987. Dexys had a few reunion attempts before reforming in 2003, and their name officially changed to "Dexys" in 2011.
4. Which English group sang the song, "I'm Too Sexy" (1991), which peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart, but made it to number one on the US Billboard Top 100?

Answer: Right Said Fred

In addition to topping the US Billboard Top 100, "I'm Too Sexy" also topped charts in other countries, including Ireland, New Zealand, and Canada. In 1992, Right Said Fred did actually release a hit that made it to the top of the UK Singles Chart, but the song, "Deeply Dippy", only stayed there for three weeks. Both songs earned the band Ivor Novello Awards.

Right Said Fred was named after a 1962 song by Bernard Cribbins, and it was formed by Richard and Fred Fairbrass in 1989. The brothers had performed with other groups before deciding to form their own band. Some of their other songs include "Stand Up (For the Champions)", "Don't Talk Just Kiss", and "Living on a Dream".
5. In 1990, Gerardo released a single that peaked at number two on Billboard's Hot Rap Singles Chart. What was the name of this song that told us "Please don't judge a book by its cover/There's more to being a latin lover"?

Answer: Rico Suave

Gerardo Mejía was born in Ecuador but moved to the US with his parents when he was 12. Before singing, he had a few small roles in film, including a role in the 1987 movie "Can't Buy Me Love". While Gerardo did not have much success as a singer, he did have some success as a record executive. He helped Enrique Iglesias get attention at the record label, and he signed Bubba Sparxxx. In 2013, he announced that he had become a pastor.

"Rico Suave" only made it to number seven on the US Billboard Hot 100, but it had more success on Billboard's Hot Rap Songs chart where it reached number two. The song had several versions made in both Spanish and Spanglish. It also sparked several parodies, including the Weird Al Yankovic song "Taco Grande" and an appearance by an artist called "Rico Suave" on a "Saturday Night Live" skit about one-hit wonders.
6. Which US singer, dancer, and actress recorded the 1982 hit song, "Mickey", a cover of the 1979 song "Kitty"?

Answer: Toni Basil

Antonia Christina Basilotta became a professional dancer as a child, and has had a successful career as a dancer and choreographer. As a singer, Basil only released two albums, the first of which was "Word of Mouth", which contained her hit single, "Mickey". "Mickey" was the only one of her singles to top the charts, and it reached the number one spot on the US Billboard Top 100 and the number 2 spot on the UK Singles Chart.

The song "Kitty" was written by Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman, and it was originally performed by the UK group, Racey, before Basil added the line "Oh Mickey, you're so fine/You're so fine, you blow my mind".
7. Which 2000 song by the Bahamian group, The Baha Men, earned them a Grammy in 2001 for Best Dance Recording?

Answer: Who Let the Dogs Out?

The song peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart, but despite the song's success in other regions, it only made it to number 40 on the US Billboard Top 100. Additionally, it placed third on a 2007 "Rolling Stone" poll to identify the most annoying songs.

The Baha Men were originally called High Voltage when they formed in 1980. They are known for their modernized version of a music style from the Bahamas called Junkanoo. "Junkanoo" was also the name of their first album after changing their name to The Baha Men.
8. Which Canadian band had a hit with "The Safety Dance" in 1983, which reached number three on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the US Billboard Dance Club Songs chart?

Answer: Men Without Hats

"The Safety Dance" was written after the lead singer of the band, Ivan Doroschuk, had an experience where he was kicked out of a club for pogo dancing, which was frowned upon in clubs at the time.

Men Without Hats formed in 1977 in Montreal, Quebec, and they disbanded in 1993. They came back together briefly during 2003-2004 and released the album "No Hats Beyond This Point". They officially reformed in 2010 and began their "Dance If You Want Tour" in 2011.
9. The British band Chumbawamba had a few songs reach the top five of the UK Indie Chart, but only one of their songs made it to number two on the UK Singles Chart. What was the name of this 1997 song, which also made it to the number one spot on Australia's ARIA Chart?

Answer: Tubthumping

"Tubthumping" also made it to the number one spot on other charts, including Billboard's US Mainstream Top 40, US Adult Top 40, and US Alternative Songs charts. The song was released on the band's 1997 album "Tubthumper". In a 2016 interview by "The Guardian", guitarist Boff Whalley said that "the song is about the resilience of ordinary people".

Chumbawamba, an alternative rock band from Burnley, Lancashire, England, was active from 1982 until 2012. The band membership changed many times over the years, and Boff Whalley and Lou Watts were the only two original members who were still in the band when it disbanded in 2012.
10. In 1974, Carl Douglas had a hit single with which disco song that spoke of kicks that "were fast as lightning"?

Answer: Kung Fu Fighting

Not only did "Kung Fu Fighting" make it to the number one spot on the UK Singles Chart and the US Billboard Top 100, but it also topped charts in many other countries, including Australia, Austria, Ireland, and Germany. The song was originally supposed to be the B-Side for "I Want to Give You My Everything", but the record label decided to make it the A-Side after hearing the songs.

Carl Douglas was born in Kingston, Jamaica, but his family moved to the UK, where he would start his career. While "Kung Fu Fighting" was his only single to top the charts in the US, his song "Dance the Kung Fu" made it to the top ten in three countries, including the number five spot on Germany's GfK Entertainment Charts.
