Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "Here's a little song I wrote You might want to sing it note for note Don't worry, be happy In every life we have some trouble But when you worry you make it double Don't worry, be happy Don't worry, be happy now..." No worries and no instruments for this chart topping writer. Who wrote and had a hit with it?

Answer: Bobby McFerrin

In 1988, "Don't Worry, Be Happy" became the first a capella song to top the Billboard Hot 100.

It was written and sung by Bobby McFerrin and won a Grammy for 'Best Pop Vocal Performance' and 'Song Of The Year' in 1989

The phrase came from the Indian guru Meher Baba. Interviwed by 'USA Weekend' magazine, McFerrin said that he saw a poster of Meher Baba with the phrase and thought it was "a pretty neat philosophy in four words".
2. "Everybody's got a thing But some don't know how to handle it Always reachin' out in vain Just taking the things not worth having but Don't you worry 'bout a thing Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama 'Cause I'll be standing on the side When you check it out..." Signed, seal, delivered: which Michigan-born singer/songwriter just called to say "no worries"?

Answer: Stevie Wonder

"Don't You Worry 'bout a Thing" was written by Stevie Wonder and was on his 1973 album "Inversions".

The single reached number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Stevie Wonder had his first number one at the age of 13 - "Fingertips - Pt. 2". In the next half century he had 63 chart entries, including 10 number ones, either solo or with collaborators.

All the answers provided were born in Michigan, so that little nugget in the question hardly helped...
3. "Well its been building up inside of me For oh I don't know how long I don't know why But I keep thinking Something's bound to go wrong But she looks in my eyes And makes me realize And she says "Don't worry baby" Don't worry baby Don't worry baby Everything will turn out alright..." Perhaps the sound of the west coast surf was the counterpoint to this song. Who sang it?

Answer: Beach Boys

The song was written by Brian Wilson and Roger Christian. Wilson told 'Goldmine' magazine in 2011 "... it took me two days to write it. I started out with the verse idea and then wrote the chorus. It was a very simple and beautiful song. It's a really heart and soul song, I really did feel that in my heart. Some say it's about a car and others say it's about a girl, who's right? It's both. It's about a car and a woman."

The song was on the B-side of "I Get Around."
4. "Take your time, take your time, take your time No need to worry Take it easy, take it easy, take it easy No need to worry No slippin', no slidin', no bumpin', no I ride into town If you fall from the race, it's no disgrace Just pick yourself from off the ground.... Take your time is good advice from a Jamaican singer most famously associated with a song about a Biblical tribe. Who was he?

Answer: Desmond Dekker

"Take Your Time" was on the album "King of Kings" in 1993.

Desmond Dekker was born in Jamaica on July 16, 1941 and died in London on May 25, 2006.

Ska and reggae were his main genres and he scored international hits with "Israelites" (1968) and "You Can Get It If You Really Want" (1970). The former topped the UK singles charts and was a number nine on the Billboard Hot 100. The latter reached number two in the UK.

Despite the success of these records and a swansong to his career when punk music came along, Dekker did not enjoy financial security and was declared bankrupt in 1984.

The album "King of Kings" contained covers of songs by people Dekker admired, and was recorded with the punk band, The Specials.

The wrong answers were all singers also born in the Caribbean, just not on the island of Jamaica.
5. "Here we are, Back in the sunshine again No more worries, No more pain Well we're leaving behind, all our trouble and strife That's the way it's gonna be, oh, the rest of my life..." Despite all the driving rain, which Beatle joined with his son to write an upbeat outlook to life?

Answer: Paul McCartney

"Back in The Sunshine Again" was written by Macca and his son, James, and was on the 2001 album "Driving Rain".

Despite the hopeful lyrics of this song, many of the numbers on the album were inspired by McCartney's then wife, Heather Mills. They were soon after to go through a messy divorce.*

*As an ex-journalist, I am obliged to adhere to tradition that all divorces should be described as "messy".
6. "In the house next door right next to mine A little boy lives there At Xmas time dear Santa Claus Brought him a teddy bear He loves his little teddy bear He's with it all day long And the sweetest thing I've ever heard Is to hear him sing this song Me and my teddy bear Have no worries, have no cares Me and my teddy bear Just play and play all day..." If you even know half as much about music as the average funtrivia player, you should be able to guess which Kentucky-born songbird sang this happy children's song.

Answer: Rosemary Clooney

Although born in Kentucky in 1928, Clooney and her family moved to California when she was 15.

At the age of 18 she cut her first records and sang with top bands. Her first hit was "Come On-a My House" in 1951, and several more number ones were to follow, including "Half As Much", which, of course, you spotted as a clue in the question.

Clooney also made a number of movies and sang with some of the best artistes, including Bing Crosby, with whom she starred in "White Christmas" in 1954.
7. "Don't worry about a thing 'Cause every little thing gonna be alright Singing' don't worry about a thing 'Cause every little thing gonna be alright..." Which Jamaica-born songwriter did not have to weep or wail for these happy highlights?

Answer: Bob Marley

Typical; you wait ages for a Jamaica-born songwriter to come up on funtrivia, and now you have two in the same quiz!

While many people think this song is called "Don't Worry About A Thing", it is actually entitled "Three Little Birds".

It was on the 1977 Bob Marley & The Wailers album "Exodus". Released as a single, it reached number 17 in the UK, but was to have higher placings in both the UK and the USA when released by eight-year-old British singer Connie Talbot in 2008.

The wrong answers were all musicians born in Barbados.
8. "I can tell by the look in your eyes That you like what you see I can tell by the touch of your hand That you've got what I need Baby there's no hurry We've got no worries Let's take all night Give me sweet lovin' Come taste my honey Into the light..." Which Michigan-born songbird was supremely not worried because she foresaw a night of pleasure?

Answer: Diana Ross

"Touch By Touch" was on the 1984 album "Swept Away".

Born in Detroit in 1944, Ross joined a group called the Primettes at the age of 15. Initially turned down by Motown Records because they were too young, they were signed up in 1961 under the new name "The Supremes".

Together with The Supremes and as a solo artist, Ross scored more than a dozen chart toppers on the Billboard Hot 100 and had hits all over the world.

In 1993, the Guinness Book of World Records included Ross as the most successful female music artist in history with, by then, 70 hit singles with the Supremes and as a solo artist. She was also was named "Female Entertainer of the Century" by 'Billboard' magazine.

As well as a singing career, Ross had some notable roles on the silver screen, and was nominated for Golden Globe and Oscar awards for "Lady Sings the Blues" (1972).
9. "We're all going on a summer holiday. No more working for a week or two. Fun and laughter on a summer holiday. No more worries for me and you. For a week or two...." Which British band had a hit about happy hopes for a sunshine holiday?

Answer: Cliff Richard & The Shadows

Cliff Richard, either as a solo artist or with The Shadows, had a phenomenal hit-making run in the 1950s and 1960s. The tally was nine UK number one songs among 39 top 10 hits.

Cliff, either alone or with collaborators, was to have four further number ones before the end of the 20th Century. That ensured he had at least one number one in the UK in each of five successive decades.

"Summer Holiday", from the movie of the same name, was number one in 1962. The movie was released in 1963 and starred Cliff and friends from a London Transport bus depot setting off to travel all the way to the south of France in a double decker London bus. Yes, pedants, I do know where they actually ended up.
10. "Oh, Atlanta I hear you calling I'm coming back to you one fine day No need to worry There ain't no hurry cause I'm On my way back to Georgia On my way back to Georgia..." Which Illinois-born songbird may well have waited at the station before this journey?

Answer: Alison Krauss

Alison Krauss was born in Decatur, Illinois, in July 1971 and was noted for her bluegrass music.
By the time she was 46, she had chalked up 27 Grammy awards out of 42 nominations.

With her band Union Station, she had a US Country number three single with "When You Say Nothing at All" in 1995.

In 2011, they had a country number one album with "Paper Airplane". It reached number three on the Billboard 200 album charts.

"Oh Atlanta" was written by English songwriter and former Mott The Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs. Alison Krauss and Union Station included it in their album "Live", which was recorded in performance at the Louisville Palace on April 29 and 30, 2002. Bad Company were the first to record the song.
