Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "What a Wonderful World"

Answer: Joey Ramone

Born in 1951 in Queens, New York, as Jeffrey Ross Hyman, Joey Ramone is probably best known as the lead singer of the US punk rock band The Ramones. Following his death in 2001, his posthumously released 2002 album "Don't Worry About Me" included Ramone's cover of Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World", and it is this version that plays in the movie.

"What a Wonderful World" plays just after Sidney has been offered a job working for "Sharps Magazine" in New York, and we see a montage of shots of The Big Apple, and a very excited Sidney being dropped off by taxi outside his new accommodation.
2. "I Get Around (Van She Dub)"

Answer: Dragonette

Canadian electronic band Dragonette were formed in 2005 in Toronto, Ontario. "I Get Around" was released in April 2007 as the lead single from the band's debut studio album "Galore".

"I Get Around (Van She Dub)" plays as we see Sidney dancing in a club on his first night in New York. His "interesting" dance moves manage to clear the dancefloor, but as soon as he walks away, the other clubbers return to the dancefloor again.
3. "Chicken Payback"

Answer: The Bees

Known in the US as A Band of Bees, The Bees are an English indie rock band that was formed in Ventnor on the Isle of Wight on 2001. Their 2005 single "Chicken Payback" is taken from the band's second studio album "Free the Bees", which was recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studios.

"Chicken Payback" plays as Sidney and Bobbie dance in Sidney's apartment after meeting in the bar. Bobbie says she has to go and powder her nose and suggests that Sidney put on something "a little more romantic".
4. "Ace of Spades"

Answer: Motörhead

One of the most successful rock bands of all time, with a career spanning more than 40 years, Motörhead were formed in 1975 in London, England, by Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister, Larry Wallis and Lucas Fox. Probably their best known song, "Ace of Spades" was released in 1980 as the title track from their fourth studio album.

Having been asked to put on something "a little more romantic" by Bobbie, Sidney takes the "Chicken Payback" record off of the record player, literally throws it away, and replaces it with another record, which turns out to be "Ace of Spades". We see Sidney enthusiastically air guitaring to the song before his landlady comes in and stops the record from playing.
5. "Spooky"

Answer: Dusty Springfield

Professionally known as Dusty Springfield, Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien was born on 16th April 1939 in London, England. With a music career that spanned nearly forty years, Dusty Springfield scored numerous hits, and is probably best known for her 1966 single "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me", however it is her cover of Mike Shapiro's "Spooky" that plays in the movie.

"Spooky" plays as we see Sidney, Alison and Lawrence in the back of a car being driven through New York to a roof-top party.
6. "Me So Horny"

Answer: 2 Live Crew

Formed in Riverside, California, the American hip hop group 2 Live Crew were originally active between 1984 and 1998, but enjoyed a revival between 2009 and 2016. "Me So Horny" was released at the start of 1989 as the lead single from the band's third album "As Nasty As They Wanna Be".

Sidney drives Alison back to his place after the birthday party as she is too inebriated to drive. When they get home, Sidney's landlady meets him at the top of the stairs, and then it is revealed that she has let Sidney's father into his apartment. As Sidney, his father and the landlady sit awkwardly in the lounge, we hear Alison clattering around before "Me So Horny" starts playing (presumably on Sidney's record player), and Alison shouts out "I love this song" and appears doing a dance before introducing herself to Sidney's father and the landlady.
7. "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'"

Answer: Scissor Sisters

Fronted by Jake Shears and Ana Matronic, Scissor Sisters are a US pop/rock band that was formed in 2000 in New York. The band are best known for their worldwide smash hit "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'", which was released in July 2006 as the lead single from their second studio album "Ta-Dah".

"I Don't Feel Like Dancin'" plays as we see Sidney dressed as George Hamilton's Dracula at the Sharps "Come as Your Favorite Dead Celebrity" Party. He finds Alison, who is dressed as Louise Brooks and discovers that she has got back together with Lawrence.
8. "The Drinks Taste Better When They're Free"

Answer: Electrovamp

Originally called Kute, the Welsh electropop outfit Electrovamp consists of sisters Tammy-Jay and Kally Davies. As well as their 2008 single "The Drinks Taste Better When They're Free", the movie also contains their song "I Love What You Do".

"The Drinks Taste Better When They're Free" plays as we see Sidney sitting at the bar at the Sharps "Come as Your Favorite Dead Celebrity" Party, clearly upset as he has just found out that Alison has got back together with Lawrence.
9. "For Reasons Unknown"

Answer: The Killers

Fronted by charismatic Brandon Flowers, The Killers are a US rock band that was formed in 2001 in Las Vegas. The band are probably best known for their early hits "Mr, Brightside" and "Somebody Told Me", however it is one of their lesser-known singles, "For Reasons Unknown" which was released in 2007, that appears in the movie.

"For Reasons Unknown" plays as we see Sidney interviewing Vincent Lepak, followed by Eleanor making a few changes to what Sidney has written as her copy approval. We then see Sidney watching as Eleanor oversees the putting together of the article, followed by Sidney picking up a copy of the latest "Sharps Magazine" from a magazine stand, flicking through, and finding his article - "Vincent Lepak, Long Live the King" by Sidney Young. We then see a montage of shots indicating that Sidney has finally made it in the world of publishing.
10. "With Every Heartbeat (Kenson Remix)"

Answer: Robyn

Known professionally as Robyn, singer-songwriter Robin Miriam Carlsson was born on 12th June 1979 in Stockholm, Sweden. "With Every Heartbeat" was released in 2007 as the second single from Robyn's self-titled fourth studio album.

"With Every Heartbeat (Kenson Remix)" plays as a limo pulls up outside the Circle Club, and Sophie, Eleanor and Sidney get out of the car and walk into the club.
