1. This song by Rod Stewart was a number 12 hit in 1988. Do you recall the name of this tune? "May the good Lord be with you Down every road you roam And may sunshine and happiness Surround you when you're far from home And may you grow to be proud Dignified and true And do unto others As you'd have done to you Be courageous and be brave And in my heart you'll always stay ...?

Answer: Forever Young

Rod Stewart is quoted in Britain's "Mojo" magazine as saying that "I love 'Forever Young', because that was a real heartfelt song about my kids."

"Forever Young" was featured on his 1988 album, "Out Of Order" and later released as a single.
2. Sam Cooke and Dr. Hook both scored big with "Only Sixteen", albeit many years apart. Can you determine which word is missing from the lyrics below? "We'd laugh and we'd sing and do funny things And it made our hearts glow But she was too --- to fall in love And I was too --- to know."

Answer: young

Sam Cooke's original release of "Only Sixteen" in 1959 was allegedly about American singer Lou Rawls' stepsister, according to Sam Cooke himself. There seems to have been a dispute about the actual origins of the song, however, as a British singer named Al Saxon also was singing the tune about the same time.

Another British artist, Craig Douglas had a number one hit with it in 1959.

The song was later covered by The Supremes in a tribute to Sam Cooke.
3. In 1975, British Rocker David Bowie released his ninth album that featured such iconic classics as "Fame" and this song that provided the title track. By what title was this album known?

Answer: Young Americans

The title cut from the album, "Young Americans", was written from the perspective of a newlywed couple, who were just discovering their place in the grander scheme of life.

The song, filled with ironies and cynicism, was produced as one of Bowie's self-proclaimed works of "plastic soul", meaning that as a white man from Britain, he was focused on black American soul music. The stylized result was his album, "Young Americans", that featured other hits such as "Fame" and "Across the Universe".
4. Gary Puckett and the Union Gap sent this hit to the top of the music charts in 1968. Can you figure out the song's title by reading the following lyrics? "Beneath your perfume and make-up You're just a baby in disguise And though you know That it's wrong to be Alone with me That come-on look is in your eyes."

Answer: Young Girl

"Young Girl" by Gary Puckett and the Union Gap was a raging success in 1968 both the U.S. and Britain, attaining the number one position on the U.K. singles charts as well as on the U.S. Cash Box, while making it to the number two slot on Billboard's Hot 100 listing.
5. In 1981, Rod Stewart had a top ten hit on his album, "Tonight I'm Yours". The song's title is never found in the song itself, but with allusions to rebellious folks and their attitudes of nonconformity, can you recall the name of this tune?

Answer: Young Turks

Featured on Rod Stewart's album, "Tonight I'm Yours", the hit "Young Turks" ended in this manner...

"...Billy wrote a letter back home
To Patti's parents tryin' to explain
He said, "We're both real sorry
That it had to turn out this way"

But there ain't no point in talking
When there's nobody listening
So we just ran away
Patti gave birth to a ten pound baby boy, yeah!

Young hearts be free tonight, time is on your side.
Young hearts be free tonight, time is on your side.
Young hearts be free tonight, time in on your side."
6. What word is missing from the blank in Paul McCartney's song "Live and Let Die", which was the theme song to a James Bond film of the same title? "When you were ------ and your heart was an open book You used to say live and let live (You know you did, you know you did, you know you did) But if this ever changing world in which we're living Makes you give in and cry; Say live and let die. Live and let die Live and let die Live and let die."

Answer: young

"Live and Let Die", the movie, was the first to feature Roger Moore as spymaster Agent 007. The film was adapted from the storyline written by Ian Fleming.

"Live and Let Die", the song was sung by Paul and Linda McCartney, along with the group Wings.
7. In 1957 Tab Hunter and Sonny James both topped the U.S. Billboard Chart with the song "Young Love", a tune that had been originally released in 1956 in the U.S. The two artists released their covers of the song within two weeks of each other.

Answer: True

While Tab Hunter's January 19th 1957 cover was the most successful (according to the US Billboard Charts, coming in at the number one position), Sonny James' version stalled at number two on January 5th of the same year, again on the US Billboard Charts.

The original version, released in 1956, by Ric Cartey and the Jiva Tones did not even chart at all. A cover later released in 1957 by the Crew Cuts only reached the number 17 slot on the Best Seller Chart; number two on the Juke Box Chart; and had to settle for third place on the Country Music Charts.
8. Although not one of this group's major successes, the album "Too Old to Rock and Roll, Too Young to Die" was released in 1976. Can you recall the name of the rock group that released it, especially if I tell you the lead singer was a Scotsman named Ian Anderson?

Answer: Jethro Tull

The album "Too Old to Rock and Roll, Too Young to Die" was the only album released by the group Jethro Tull that never went at least to "gold" status in the U.S.
The band took their name from a 17th century agriculturist, (for some inexplicable reason.)

Some of their more successful progressive albums include "Aqualung", "Thick as a Brick", and "A Passion Play".
9. In the song, "Sweet Home Alabama", the southern-rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd made a reference to what famous songwriter and singer who hailed from Toronto, Ontario in Canada?

Answer: Neil Young

"Big wheels keep on turning
Carry me home to see my kin
Singing songs about the Southland
I miss Alabama once again
And I think it's a sin, yea

Well, I heard Mr. Young sing about her
Well, I heard ol' Neil put her down
Well, I hope Neil Young will remember
A Southern man don't need him around anyhow."

Neil Young, in his 2012 autobiography noted that he didn't particularly care much for his own accusations regarding racism in the U.S. South, especially as he had referenced the south in a negative light with his songs, "Southern Man" and "Alabama".
10. Now, without looking back, (okay; if you must!), what word appears throughout the quiz in every answer or question?

Answer: Young

The word "young" appears at least once in every question or answer.
