Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. You Gotta Move

Answer: Rolling Stones

"You gotta move
You gotta move
You gotta move, child
You gotta move
Oh, when the Lord gets ready
You gotta move."

The song was was written and originally performed in the 1920s and 30s by Mississippi bluesman Fred McDowell. In 1969 it appeared on the Stones album "Sticky Fingers". At this time in their career the Stones included many blues standards in their LPs and concert set-lists.
Mick Taylor, who played guitar with the Stones between 1969 and 1974, later recalled: "'You Gotta Move' was this great Mississippi Fred McDowell song that we used to play all the time in the studio. I used a slide on that - on an old 1954 Fender Telecaster - and that was the beginning of that slide thing I tried to develop with the Stones."
2. Let Me Move You

Answer: Jimi Hendrix

"Baby let me move ya
Ooo, Baby let me move ya
Baby let move
Ooo, Baby let me move.."

Jimi Hendrix was one of the best guitarists of his generation, even if he took quite a while to make it to the top of the bill. Early in his career he played support to the likes of Ike and Tina Turner, Little Richard, King Curtis, The Isley Brothers, and Wilson Pickett. He formed his first band in 1965 and when he headlined the 1969 Woodstock Festival, he was the highest paid artist on the bill, earning $125,000.
3. I Feel the Earth Move

Answer: Carole King

"I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you're around."

"I Feel The Earth Move" was taken from King's seminal 1971 album "Tapestry". The single - a double A side with "It's Too Late" - topped the Billboard Hot 100 in June of that year.
In summer 2016, King performed the entire "Tapestry" song list at a concert in London, the first time she had ever done so.
4. You're Moving Out Today

Answer: Carole Bayer Sager

"I stayed out late one night and you moved in
I didn't mind 'cause of the state you were in
May I remind you that it's been a year since then
Today the landlady, she said to me (what did she say?)
Your looney friend just made a pass at me (slap him in the face)
Perhaps you might enjoy a cottage by the sea
So pack your toys away
Your pretty boys away
Your 45s away
Your alibis away
Your Spanish flies away
Your one-more-tries away
Your old tie-dyes away
You're moving out today."

Noted chiefly as a lyricist, Carole Bayer Sager co-wrote numerous hits with her then husband Burt Bacharach and also with many other composers, including Albert Hammond. "You're Moving Out Today" was co-written with Bette Midler and Bruce Roberts and allowed CBS to actually be the singer for a change.
The single reached Number Six in the UK charts and was a chart-topper in Australia.
5. Night Moves

Answer: Bob Seger

"Out past the cornfields where the woods got heavy
Out in the back seat of my '60 Chevy
Workin' on mysteries without any clues
Workin' on our night moves
Tryin' to make some front page drive-in news
Workin' on our night moves
In the summertime
In the sweet summertime."

Although it peaked at just Number Four in the Billboard Hot 100, this was the best-selling single of 1977.
Seger claims the song was autobiographical, although he did take some liberties with the facts.
Recorded in Toronto, Seger later said of "Night Moves" "When people ask 'Do you know when you've written a hit?' the usual answer is no. This song was an exception."
6. Something In The Way She Moves

Answer: James Taylor

"Something in the way she moves, or looks my way, or calls my name
that seems to leave this troubled world behind.
And if I'm feeling down and blue or troubled by some foolish game,
she always seems to make me change my mind."

Hands up everyone who thought of The Beatles when they saw this song choice. That may be because they borrowed the phrase as the opening words of "Something":
"Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me

I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how."

The song was taken from James Taylor's eponymous 1968 debut album. Tom Rush and Harry Belafonte later covered the song.
7. Make The World Move

Answer: Christina Aguilera

"The time is now
No time to wait
Turn up the love
Turn down the hate
Turn up the love
Turn down the hate (hey)
Keep dancing too let the record play
The time is now
No need to wait
Turn up the love say cause I'm free
No time to wait (HEY)
Make the world move."

Taken from Aguilera's seventh studio album, "Lotus" (2012), the song received a mixed reception and failed to chart in any significant market.
8. Move Over

Answer: Janis Joplin

"You say that it's over baby, Lord,
You say that it's over now,
But still you hang around me, come on,
Won't you move over. "

"Move Over" was taken from the chart topping "Pearl" album, which was released following Joplin's death. It was written by Joplin and she recorded it on the same day as "Me And Bobby McGee."
9. We Shall Not Be Moved

Answer: Pete Seeger

"We shall not, we shall not be moved
We shall not, we shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's standing by the water
We shall not be moved."

This is one of the songs that became an anthem for the Civil Rights Movement in the USA in the 1960s. It was a traditional American folk song, probably dating to the times of the slave plantations. (Originally entitled "I Shall Not Be Moved"). New verses were added over the years.
The song has been recorded by a long list of singers from 1929 onward. That list includes Mississippi John Hurt, Joan Baez, Ella Fitzgerald, Johnny Cash and Mavis Staples. Pete Seeger is chosen here to represent them, due to the musical role he played in campaigning for Civil Rights.
10. Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)

Answer: Billy Joel

"Anthony works in the grocery store
Savin' his pennies for some day
Mama Leone left a note on the door,
She said,
"Sonny, move out to the country."

Oh but workin' too hard can give you a heart attack
You oughta know by now
Who needs a house out in Hackensack?
Is that all you get for your money?

And it seems such a waste of time
If that's what it's all about
Mama, if that's movin' up then I'm movin' out."

From the album "The Stranger", this was a Billboard Hot 100 Number 14 in 1977.
Explaining some of the rationale behind the song, Joe said in 2014: "I've seen friends of mine who were pressured into taking a job to take care of the family, and then they never fulfill themselves - they're doing it because that's where you're supposed to go. Everybody's got something they love to do or they should be doing - a talent. I see people wasting their lives, not putting their talent to that purpose so they could have stuff: you get a Cadillac and then you're fine." [Interview with Howard Stern.]
