Summer is Icumen In - Quiz
 
Since Pigboat appears to be banned, and I think a lot of us enjoyed his quizzes, I have attempted (with his permission) to come up with something similar. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and my apologies in advance for this pale imitation. Maybe someone else can do Fall.

Rules (Zere vill be ORDER!)
1. You may not use reference books or the internet. Do your best from memory. You may use the assembled brains at a Barbie/Drinkex. You may play your music collection. You may phone a friend ;)
2. Until the first set of answers have been posted, players are restricted to one post apiece, containing as many answers as they like. Additional posts will be ignored and edited posts will be disqualified.
3. Once the first set of answers are posted, posts are unlimited (but please continue not to edit; just post again). Points are still available as long as questions remain unanswered.
4. You will enjoy this summer!

In a slight change to Pigboat's rules, the first correct answer gets two points, but everyone with each correct answer gets one point. So, there's less pressure to get the answers in quickly, and you are probably going to get a bigger score if you don't post too quickly - feel free to take a few days, maybe ask people at a gathering.

There is one (and only one) trick question.

Opening Lines
Name the singer/group, song, and maybe more....

1. "When you're down and troubled
And you need some love and care
And nothing, nothing is going right"

2. "Johnny's in the basement, mixing up the medicine".

(b) Where am I and what am I doing?

3. "Well my name's John Lee Pettimore
Same as my Daddy and his Daddy before"

4. "I heard that you're settled down
That you found a girl and you're married now"

5. "The Indians send signals
From the rocks above the pass
The cowboys take positions
In the bushes and the grass"

(b) What speed were the Sweeney doing?

6. "The lights go out and I can't be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against"

7. "She grew up in the Indiana town,
had a good looking momma, who never was around."

8. "Long time ago, came a man on a track,
Walking 30 miles with a sack on his back"

9. "I walk a lonely road,
The only one that I have ever known"

10. "She says her love for me could never die
But that'd change if she ever found out about you and I"
