#3) Red Rubber Ball was written by Paul Simon, since my older brother had the 45 and practically wore out the grooves playing it!

P.S. - Jerry Lewis always sang "Smile" on his Labor Day Muscular Dystrophy telethons, and never failed to mention that the song was written by one of his idols, Charlie Chaplin.

I had zero clue as to the correct composers/lyricists for Lew's quiz with the exception of Charlie Chaplin's Smile, but Batman already answered question #1.

I researched the others, so I must disqualify myself on this quiz.  Interesting results!

Very cool questions, Lew!

:)

Want to clear up what the rules are. My understanding is we can each only answer one question, but if after a certain (how much?) amount of time questions go unanswered, we can answer those still unanswered?

P.S.

You're understanding is correct. Only one question. When I determine that the quiz is over, I give you the answer to any unanswered questions, if there are any, for those of you that are curious of the correct answer. I may change up the rules a bit for the next quiz when this one has ended.

2. Band on the Run

Craig, wouldn´t it be even more fun if after everybody has done their best to answer one question, and there are no more posts pursuant to this, ...to, before you close the Quiz down, open up the unanswered questions to any/all of us even if we´d already answered one question?

Absolutely! That's exactly what I was thinking  about doing. The only thing I was contemplating was whether to allow one more answer or to allow the participant to answer any or all unanswered questions.
