I would love to see quiz results sorted by age of takers...I bet "Big Rock Candy Mountain" is meaningless to anyone under, say, 35....

It had a BIG resurgence due to the Coen Brothers film "O Brother Where Art Thou" in 2000.

It was a folk song which was popular with hobos riding the rails during the Depression back in the '30's. The hobos would ride the rails looking for work and hand-outs and occasionally bunked down in Hoovervilles. That's why they included it in the movie in the opening scene.

I'm 22 and I've heard the song. When ever we drove past the actual mountain called big rock candy mountain my parents would start singing it to us.

I'm 23 and I'd be ashamed of anyone who didn't know about the Big Rock Candy Mountain. After all, it's pretty much the oldest version of 'Stranger Danger'.

OMG I thought I was the only one! I had that VHS as a kid too, and even back then I thought it was too sappy and weird (although I enjoyed a little of it). Also I know that they changed almost all the lyrics from the original song to make it more kid-friendly. For some reason they even changed "soda-water fountains," cuz I guess even THAT was too risque for Wee Sing. Anyway, I can remember hearing the Burl Ives recording of the song on my grandmother's record player as a child, and that's the first place I heard it. Like others have said, I hardly meet anyone who doesn't know at least part of the song and very few of them remember or even have seen O Brother Where Art Thou.

I'm in my 60s and I heard it often as a kid. I remember it was usually Burl Ives singing it, maybe even on the Captain Kangaroo show. Back then cigarettes and alcohol were advertised on TV so we probably wouldn't have thought it odd to hear them referenced in a song on a children's show. It was just a song about the hobo life, and we saw a lot of hobos in the '50 and '60s. My mom fed all of them who came to our door.

My father had "Big Rock Candy Mountain" on a 78RPM record. If you don't know what that is, or never had one, and you have to rely on "O Brother etc" to hear the song, that makes you an infant. We played the record (brittle, made out of bakelite) on a victrola back in the 1950s "Oh, the buzzin' of the bees and the cigarette trees and the soda water fountain, And the lemonade springs where the bluebird sings on the ..." God, I'm old

Big Rock Candy Mountain is not what you think it is about. Look up the final verse; it certainly isn't a children's song.

Small typo, I think. Bilbo's name is Baggins. So it should be Baggins's or Baggins' depending on what style manual you are reading. But Baggin's is incorrect.

Adding comic book or cartoon characters to an otherwise grownup quiz is frustrating. Not many of us spent our youth on such trivialities.
