Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which 1967 song did Franki Valli make popular?

Answer: Can't Take My Eyes Off You

"Can't Take My Eyes Off You" was released by American singer, Franki Valli, as a single in 1967. It soared up to number two on the "Billboard Hot 100" charts in the United States, only just being pipped at the post with "Windy" by the Association. "Can't Take My Eyes Off You", which won a gold record, even made its way into space when it was used by NASA as one of their alarm clock waking up songs for astronauts during the Space Shuttle Endeavour mission.

It was played to wake up astronaut Christopher Ferguson because it was also his wedding anniversary on that day.
2. Kelly Clarkson released which single from her "Breakaway" album in 2005?

Answer: Behind These Hazel Eyes

Kelly Clarkson recorded "Behind These Hazel Eyes" for her second studio album "Breakaway" in 2004, although the song itself wasn't released as a single until 2005. It reached as high as number six on the US "Billboard Hot 100" following this, and stayed in the top ten songs there for another fifteen weeks.
3. Mariah Carey released which single from her 1997 album "Butterfly?

Answer: Close My Eyes

"Close My Eyes" was released by Mariah Carey on her 1997 album "Butterfly", making it her sixth album to hit the shops. She also helped compose the song as well, along with Walter Afanasieff, contributing to the music but writing all the lyrics herself. Mariah said in an interview in 2012 that "Close My Eyes" was her most favourite song that she had written up until that time.
4. What kind of emotional eyes did Bruce Springsteen sing about in 1990?

Answer: Sad Eyes

"Sad Eyes" was recorded by American singer Bruce Springsteen in 1990. It was also released as part of his 1998 box set "Tracks", and again in his 1999 album "18 Tracks". He must have been running out of ideas for titles. In that same year, another famous performer, the smoking hot Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias, added to the song's fame when he included it in his first English language album, simply called "Enrique".
5. Which beautiful weather related song did Willie Nelson release in 1975?

Answer: Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain

This song is beautiful, but frightfully sad. It makes me want to howl at the moon. Written by Fred Rose way back in the first half of the 20th century, it was originally recorded by country and western singer, Roy Acuff, in 1945. In the interim between that version and Willie Nelson's heartbreaking rendition, several other performers, including Hank Williams, Slim Whitman and Conway Twitty, also gave it a shot.

It was Willie's interpretation, recorded on his 1975 "Red Headed Stranger" album, however, that has guaranteed this song in its permanent place in the hall of fame. Good old Willie.
6. James Taylor made which five word titled song popular in 1971?

Answer: You Can Close Your Eyes

James Taylor recorded "You Can Close Your Eyes" for his 1971 album "Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon". What a title. He also released it on the B-side of a single called "You've Got a Friend". That single reached number one on the US "Hot Billboard 100" charts that year, so "You Can Close Your Eyes" was taken along for the ride. James Taylor wrote this song himself and described it as a "secular hymn". Bit fancy.

Many others though consider it as a kind of lullaby because of its soothing lyrics and melody.
7. What is the very popular international song released by Al Martino in 1966?

Answer: Spanish Eyes

"Spanish Eyes" or, as it is sometimes, but erroneously known, "Blue Spanish Eyes", has an interesting history. Originally called "Moon Over Naples" it was first recorded as an instrumental version in 1965 by German bandleader Bert Kaempfert. When lyrics were added to the melody by Charles Singleton in 1966, a recording of the song by Sergio Franchi didn't go anywhere. New lyrics by Eddie Snyder followed, along with the name change to "Spanish Eyes" and this saw American singer, Al Martino, take the song into the top levels of the music charts, not only in the States, but also in Europe.

This was particularly the case in Germany, where it sold more than 800,000 copies, and in the UK where it soared its way into the charts there both in 1970, and again in 1973.

Many singers have continued to perform this great old number ever since. Even the tubby but lovable Homer Simpson sang a version of it in an episode of that popular animated series. Probably right before he scoffed down a couple of hamburgers.
8. Which "sweet" 1969 song was released by Crosby, Stills and Nash?

Answer: Suite Judy Blue Eyes

First appearing on the Crosby, Stills and Nash album of the same name in 1969, and also as a separate single that same year, "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" is now listed on the famous "Rolling Stone" magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time". Because the song is a series of short songs, the title is a play on the word "sweet".

A musical "suite" (a classical term) is considered to be part of several pieces of musical composition that are part of an overall whole. The song itself is broken down into four distinct sections, way too detailed to discuss in here.
9. British band Coldplay released which enviously coloured song in 2002?

Answer: Green Eyes

"Green Eyes" first appeared in the 2002 album "A Rush of Blood to the Head" by the popular British band, Coldplay. They began recording this album very shortly after the infamous 9/11 attacks by terrorists on the United States. The song itself, which was written by band member Chris Martin, although it is well known, was not as popular as some of the other music produced by this band on this album.

He wrote it for fellow band member, Johnny Buckland and his American friend at that time.
10. Rosemary Clooney made which 1951 alliterative song very popular?

Answer: Beautiful Brown Eyes

"Beautiful Brown Eyes" was a popular country and western song, with a waltz beat, written by Fiddlin' Arthur Smith (yes, that's his name) and Alton Delmore, way back in 1951, and recorded by various artists for the next twenty years. Perhaps the most popular version was that by Rosemary Clooney in the same year it was written.

The song tells the sorry tale of a woman crossed in love, but whether it's by a man with blue or brown eyes in the song, or whether she has the blue or brown eyes is uncertain.

The lyrics are a little ambiguous in that regard.
