That's actually quite impressive. I'd never even heard of Van Morrison. Van Beethoven is more my thing...

I used to really like that song, but I've come to find it a little cheesy and very overplayed. Van Morrison has a lot of great songs. I wouldn't rank that one among his best.

It's actually used more as a verb, I think: "You wanna go grab some lunch?" "No thanks – I'm brown bagging it today."

Never heard of it either. I did guess it though, so even if it is an American thing it is at least one that us non Americans have a chance of getting. I was stumped on the NY house though and as for who Jim Croce is/was never mind who he sang about......

You can listen to the late great singer/songwriter Jim Croce online - listen to the haunting Time In a Bottle which sadly, was released the same year he died, 1973. I was attending a Lobo concert at my college when Lobo was called off the stage. He came back out all broken up, and told us that his friend, Jim Croce, and guitarist (Maury Muehleisen - he was great, too, but I had to look up his name) had just died in a plane crash after playing a college concert in Louisiana. It was a night I'll never forget. He also wrote I Got a Name, I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song, Operator, and many more.

Wow, thanks for relating that, ander217. Jim Croce made a remarkable number of really good songs for such a brief career. It's a shame that his body of work always gets boiled down to "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown." Almost all of his songs just grow on you.

Dammit, I missed the John Brown one because I read "radical abortionist". I was wondering what the hell a radical abortionist was...

Cool quiz. Any chance you can accept "ian motion" -- so that we don't have to type in "brown" for that one? Cheers.

Since in all the other answers you don't need to type "brown", I was surprised "ian motion" didn't work.

Anyone listen to the lyrics to "Brown Sugar" lately? There's a lot of old music out there that's questionable and/or outright objectionable by evolving standards but I'm surprised the Rolling Stones got away with this even in the 70's.
