Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The Beatles

Answer: Sun King

From the album "Abbey Road" (1969), "Sun King" was never released as a single. Credited to McCartney-Lennon, the song is mostly Lennon's and includes a few lines of a nonsense mixture (done deliberately) of words at the end which include Spanish, Italian and a Liverpool expression, 'chicka ferdy', that was apparently used in a teasing manner, according to John.
2. Beyonce

Answer: Single Ladies

From the CD "I Am...Sasha Fierce", "Single Ladies (Put a ring on It)" was released as a single late in 2008 with "If I Were a Boy" on the flip side. The song peaked at Number One on the Billboard Hot 100 charts while also scoring the coveted Number One spot on the Hot Digital Songs chart.
It received all kinds of other accolades including Song of the Year, Best R&B Song and Best Female R&B Performance at the 2010 Grammy Awards.
3. Bee Gees

Answer: Stayin' Alive

A huge hit for the Bee Gees, "Stayin' Alive" was written for the iconic disco movie, "Saturday Night Fever" and appeared on the soundtrack for the movie. It was released as a single in 1977 and didn't take long to reach the coveted Number One spot on the Billboard Top 100 hits.

It has since received many accolades, being included on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list (1995), "Rolling Stone's" The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time (2010) and "Time" magazine's All Time 100 Songs (2011), to name a few.

Interestingly, the British Heart Foundation used it in teaching CPR because of the number of beats per minute in the song were perfect.
4. Judy Collins

Answer: Send in the Clowns

"Send in the Clowns" was written for the 1973 Broadway musical, "A Little Night Music", by Stephen Sondheim. The song has been recorded by a large number of artists (more than 900), including Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Sammy Davis Jr and Barbra Streisand, to name a few.
In 1975 Judy Collins released it and it spent 11 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, and again in 1977 for 16 weeks. But it never reached the coveted number one spot, peaking at 16. Judy Collin's version was named Song of the Year at the 1976 Grammy Awards.
5. Adele

Answer: Skyfall

Recorded for the "James Bond" movie of the same name, although it was not included on the movie's soundtrack, "Skyfall" was released on October 5, 2012 on what was named Global James Bond Day, in celebration of the 50th anniversary release of the first "James Bond" movie, "Dr. No", starring the late Sean Connery.
"Skyfall", the single, peaked at Number Eight on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and won the Oscar for Best Original Song at the 2013 Academy Awards.
6. Eartha Kitt

Answer: Santa Baby

Eartha Kitt, accompanied by Henri Renee and his Orchestra, released "Santa Baby" in 1953. The song created a lot of controversy because of its cheeky lyrics which were deemed too racy. This caused the song to be temporarily banned in parts of the US. The song has fared better over the years and even made it onto Billboard's release of "Greatest Christmas Hits 1935-54", released 1989.
Many other artists have recorded it, most notably Madonna, in 1987, after which it has been used in a number of movies.
7. Elvis Presley

Answer: Stuck on You

Elvis released "Stuck on You" on Mar 23, 1960, eighteen days after returning home and being discharged from his two year stint in the Army, spent largely in Germany. His first release after his hiatus easily made it to the coveted Number One spot on Billboard's Hot 100 chart and also scored the Number Six spot on the R&B charts.
8. The Four Seasons

Answer: Sherry

Although it went by a few names (Jackie, Teri and even Peri were considered) Bob Gaudio eventually settled on "Sherry" which was the name of Gaudio's friend's daughter. The song was released in 1961 and was The Four Season's first number one hit on both the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B charts. Gaudio claims to have written the song in 15 minutes.
9. Stevie Wonder

Answer: Superstition

Released on October 24, 1972 (in time for Halloween?) "Superstition" easily reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Wonder's first Number One hit since 1963. "Rolling Stone" magazine listed it as number 74 on their 2004 list of the Greatest Songs of All Time.
"Superstition" is an all-round great song with a beat that is difficult to sit still through. Apparently that inspiring beat was created by Jeff Beck, who was working with Wonder on the album "Talking Book".
10. The Tremeloes

Answer: Silence is Golden

"Silence is Golden" was written by Bob Gaudio (of The Four Seasons) and Bob Crew and was released by The Four Seasons as the B side of "Rag Doll" in 1964.
In 1967 the UK band, The Tremeloes covered the song and had a huge hit with it. It was Number One on the UK charts for three weeks and made it to number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, selling enough copies to earn The Tremeloes a gold record.
