Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. When the Fandangle children were playing in the park while it was drizzling outside they sang "Swinging in the Rain". Which 1929 song title did they mean to sing?

Answer: "Singin' in the Rain"

"Singin' in the Rain" (1929) was sung by Doris Eaton Travis, for the first time, in The Hollywood Music Box Revue. The song's popularity stemmed more from the film "Singing in the Rain" (1952), with Gene Kelly dancing to the song and splashing through the rain puddles. The lyrics of the song were written by Arthur Freed and the music was composed by Nacio Herb Brown.

The little Fandangle girls and boys, in the park, were swinging on the swings when it began drizzling outside. They mixed up the title of the song turning it into "Swinging in the Rain".
2. The mixed up Fandangle family chanted "Good Right, Irene" to the winner of a female boxing match as they were heading home in the dark evening. Which 1931 song title should they have chanted?

Answer: "Good Night, Irene"

"Goodnight, Irene" (1931), also known as "Irene, Goodnight", was first recorded by Huddie "Lead Belly" Ledbetter. Although the origin of the folk song, "Goodnight, Irene", is unknown, Huddie Ledbetter claims to have learned it from his uncle back in 1908. Huddie made the song his song and managed to record the song for the Library of Congress.

Boxing comprises of such terms as jab, right hook, left hook, cross, rabbit punch and more. Irene is a girl's name. Since the winner knockout out her opponent with a right hook, the Fandangle family wrongly chanted "Good Right Irene".
3. The Fandangle family were making origami objects before eating their soup. They unintentionally sang out, "It's Only a Paper Spoon". Which 1933 song title did they intend to sing?

Answer: "It's Only a Paper Moon"

"It's Only a Paper Moon" (1933) was written by E. Y. Harburg and Billy Rose, with the music composed by Harold Arlen. Such singers as Ella Fitzgerald and the Nat King Cole Trio made the song popular in the jazz scene. It was originally written for "The Great Magoo", a 1933 Broadway play which was an unsuccessful play. It was then used in the film "Take a Chance" (1933) and sung by Peggy Healey.

Origami is the folding of paper to create shapes and a spoon is an eating utensil used to eat soup. This is why the Fandangle family confused the song title and sang "It's Only a Paper Spoon".
4. "Rock Around the Block" was a mixed up song title by the Fandangle family when they visited Alcatraz and pretended to be prisoners strolling outside of their cells. Which 1952 song title should the Fandangle family have sung?

Answer: "Rock Around the Clock"

"Rock Around the Clock" was written by Max C. Freedman and James E. Myers in 1952, with the most popular recording released in 1954 by Bill Haley and His Comets. The song is classed as a rock and roll song and also as a rockabilly song. "Rock Around the Clock" became a number one hit on the Cashbox pop singles chart in 1955. It was the first rock and roll hit to top the Billboard Pop charts.

Another term for a row of prison cells is a block, so the Fandangle "prisoners" sang "Rock Around the Block" instead of "Rock Around the Clock". Alcatraz was a prison in San Francisco Bay, California, U.S.A.
5. The Fandangle family went to watch horses performing a march and a dance, late into the evening. They unwittingly sang out "I Could Have Pranced All Night". Which 1956 song title should they have sung?

Answer: "I Could Have Danced All Night"

"I Could Have Danced All Night" (1956) was written by Alan Jay Lerner and the music was composed by Frederick Loewe. Julie Andrews performed the song first, in the original Broadway musical "My Fair Lady" (1956). This song was also recorded by such greats as Dinah Shore, Frank Sinatra and Rosemary Clooney.

Since the show horses loved to prance and the show went on late into the evening hours, the Fandangle family unwittingly created a new version of the song by calling it "I Could Have Pranced All Night".
6. When daddy Fandangle and his two oldest sons were on strike and were waiting for "strike" wages to arrive, they mixed up the 1963 song title and inadvertently sang "Our Pay Will Come". Which title should they have sang instead?

Answer: "Our Day Will Come"

"Our Day Will Come" (1963) was a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 for Ruby & The Romantics. Bob Hilliard and Mort Garson composed the song. Patti Page also released the song in 1963. Garson arranged the song in 1965 for a version by Doris Day. The song has been covered many times by greats like Cher in 1966, Diana Ross and the Supremes in 1965 and Christina Aguilera in 1996.

People on strike have to wait for their "strike" wages to be sent to them or to be able to be picked up by them. Another term for wages is pay, so the Fandangle's song title became, "Our Pay Will Come."
7. Mother Fandangle took her teething eight month old twins to the top of a mound of grass in the park. She somehow managed to sing "The Drool on the Hill" instead of which 1967 song title?

Answer: "The Fool on the Hill"

"Fool on the Hill" (1967) was written and sung by Sir Paul McCartney of The Beatles. Credit for this song was given to the duo of Lennon/McCartney. "Fool on the Hill" was on the album "Magical Mystery Tour". Several artists including Shirley Bassey, Eddie Fisher and Aretha Franklin later recorded this song.

When babies teethe they drool a lot and a mound of grass is a hill, so mother Fandangle sang "The Drool on the Hill" by mistake.
8. While watching a documentary about the royal family, "Send in the Crowns" was the song title that the Fandangle family sang rather than which proper 1973 song title?

Answer: "Send in the Clowns"

"Send in the Clowns" (1973) was first performed by Glynis Johns in the Broadway production of "A Little Night Music" (1973). Stephen Sondheim composed the song for the character of Desiree, played by Glynis Johns. The song became popular in 1975 by both Frank Sinatra and Judy Collins. Barbara Streisand, among other artists, also recorded the song which became a popular jazz song. For Judy Collins, the song became a Billboard Hot 100 for eleven weeks, reaching number thirty-six.

The royal family wanted their headwear, their crowns, brought in to them. The Fandangle family heard the demand and broke into chorus singing "Send in the Crowns" instead of "Send in the Clowns".
9. "Maybe I'm Maize" was not deliberately the change that the Fandangle family made when they sat down to eat corn on the cob. Which 1970 song title did they mean to sing?

Answer: "Maybe I'm Amazed"

"Maybe I'm Amazed" (1970) was written by Paul McCartney and released in 1970 on his "McCartney" album. When McCartney put together the band Wings, they released a single of "Maybe I'm Amazed" in 1976. It became a top ten hit in 1977 on the U.S. Billboard pop charts. The song also reached number three hundred and thirty eight in the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list by "Rolling Stone" magazine in 2004.

The Fandangles loved corn, also known as maize. It didn't take long for them to sing the wrong lyrics and come out with "Maybe I'm Maize".
10. The beautiful mother Fandangle presented a very fancy and wonderful holiday roast pork meal. The family goofed up the 1991 title and sang out "Beauty and the Feast" when they should have sang which song?

Answer: "Beauty and the Beast"

"Beauty and the Beast" (1991) was composed by Alan Menken with lyrics by Howard Ashman. It was the leading single from the Disney animated musical film "Beauty and the Beast" (1991). Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson's duet version was released in 1991. The song reached number nine in the U.S. and number eight on the hot 100 Singles sales. It reached number seventeen on the Billboard hot 100 Airplay. The song won an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1992. It also won the 1992 Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song among other prestigious awards.

A meal with all of the fancy trimmings is considered to be a feast. Since mother Fandangle was a very lovely mother, her family considered her to be a beauty. No wonder they came up with "Beauty and the Feast" as their song version.
