I thought we were only to answer ONE question? I'm done.

Yes....it seems the rules need to be re-read. Only getting credit for one answer.

The Standings after Question #1:

Batman     1
James       1
Lew            1
Susie          1

** Please only answer ONE question and if your'e not participating, wait until the next quiz is posted before commenting on the previous one.

Suggestion... maybe Craig should impose a time limit on each quiz.

I get frustrated when questions go unanswered for several days.  Either no one else knows the answer, or like me, others refrain from answering multiple questions until other members have had an opportunity to do so.

I answer multiple questions to move us on to the next quiz.

Sorry for being a question piggie.  🤭🐖

Love these quizzes! ♥️

Thank you, Craig!!!  😊

Quiz #2:

1. I'm Gonna Knock On Your Door was #12 in 1961 by what 14 year old boy?

2. I Fought The Law was a 1966 top 10 hit for what group?

3. I Love You, Yes I Do was a Merseybeats top 40 hit in what year?

4. I Only Have Eyes For You quickly became a standard after being introduced in 1959 by what group?

5. Hard Rock Cafe made the top 30 in 1977 form whom? 

6. Friends from the film of the same name, was a 1971 top 40 hit for whom?

Sorry, I was referring to this quiz.  I will officially say my guess answer will stand with question number #4, The Flamingos, I believe.

P.S. - - - I got REALLY curious about question #1 in Quiz #2 here, so I researched a little.  I was correct,  the Isley Brothers did do "I'm Gonna Knock On Your Door", which is a COMPLETELY different song from what Miss Aretha Franklin did, of which the actual title of that song is "Until You Come Back To Me""; which was written by Stevie Wonder. (The line "I'm gonna knock on your door" is indeed in the song Ms. Franklin did also).

But Stevie Wonder is not the answer for question #1 in this Quiz #2, but I could not have guessed who did, and I'm not saying who did---because I peaked, so to speak---to find out for certain. Someone else will have to guess the singer, and it is not Little Stevie Wonder.

My apologies to Batman for also being a question piggie.   :rolleyes:

Yes, a time limit will be imposed. I will extend quiz #2 for three more days (since that was what I posted originally). After that, each quiz will be valid for 5 days. Each Round will consist of 21 quizzes. Who will be the winner of Round 1?

Psychedelic Furs in 1982 had the song "Love My Way". Their return comeback album just came out (their first since 1987!!) 

Matthew....please only answer one question. Someone who has not yet answered can steal this answer if you think it's correct. Or you can submit one of your own.

Ok....let's try getting this started again. We'll consider the "Pre Forum Shutdown" as a trial run. We mean business this time. 

RULES

If you'd like to participate, pick only ONE question from the group of 6. (first come, first serve) You will receive 1 point for a correct answer. Anyone answering more than one question will be disqualified and will not receive a point for that quiz. If someone has answered a question with an answer that you feel might be incorrect, you may make another (different) guess. Of course, only one participant will score 1 point for that question. The quiz will end when every question has been answered correctly and the next quiz will then be posted. Each quiz will be posted for a max of 10 days before another quiz is posted. I will keep the running score for each player. 

Note, that I am using a music Trivia Game published in 1985. The answers that are on those cards are official. Please do not use the internet to research answers. The honor system will be used.

 

Are we ready?
