    I am sure most of you will search online for the answers....but try first anyway. Not the name of the song, (unless asked) but just need answers to the questions. Should be pretty easy for many of us.


    1. As the second largest city in America passed away, what was determined to be the occupation of the narrator's father?

    2. Asian martial arts were compared to this weather phenomenon.

    3. What was put in the coconut?

    4. What was as easy as 123?

    5. When a man comes home after being away for a while, he finds out his wife cheated on him with his friend Andy and another man, Seth. Who killed Andy and the cheating woman?

    6. This song was written as a response to a school shooting in San Diego. What was the name of the song?

    7. This funk band reportedly got their name from a series of bus routes in their hometown.

    8. According to this classic song, what was wrong with the macaroni, the peas and the chicken? What made the diner feel better after this?

    9. Where did Billy Joe McAllister meet his demise?

    10. This drummer passed out in the Cow Palace in 1973 after taking what combination of drugs and alcohol?

    Answering without having looked at the previous responses, apologies for any repeats from posts before mine.

    Daddy was a cop, on the east side of Chicago.

    2. Asian martial arts were compared to this weather phenomenon.
    Those cats were fast as lightning.

    6. This song was written as a response to a school shooting in San Diego. What was the name of the song?

    #7. It was three streets in their hometown...Greenwood, Archer and Pine. Your question threw me. I’m a huge Gap Band fan, but you threw me by using bus routes instead of streets.

    If it is grand funk railroad, it is named after the Detroit rail spur, the grand trunk railroad


    Ran a plant in Detroit in the 90’s , and the grand trunk made raw material deliveries. Always thought it sounded too similar, and read the reference after I moved

    #5 I think is the night the lights went out in Georgia. Little sister don't miss when she aims her gun

    I'll admit, from my brother.

    I always wondered why the lights went out when they hung an innocent man. No if they had used the electric chair, it would make sense.

    Also, if Johnny Cash shot a man in Reno just to watch him die, why was he doing time in Folsom prison in CA?
