Excuse the tangent, but I don't know the answer to this: If, when submitting a comment, I click on the box to also send it to Quizmaster, is that also going to the originator of the quiz (if other than Quizmaster), or is it JUST going to Quizmaster? If just Quizmaster, I really apologize for sending compliments on other people's quizzes (as if I'm not annoying enough). You always do a great job, too! :-)

Oh, okay! So if the quiz creator's not you (you being Quizmaster), the creator gets *all* comments as a matter of course, but you only get them if we check the little box? Assuming I'm understanding properly now, I'm very sorry for all the comments I sent to you all those times I checked the box thinking that's what I had to do to contact the creator! MY BAD.

Should be 'EVA'........ Evita was the stage show and sometimes nickname of Eva Peron. The question asks 'Don't cry for her?..... that is Eva Peron.

The song contest isn't Eurovision, that is the company that made it, the contest is the Eurovision Song Contest.

Is it just me or is it faintly ridiculous that 91% got "Rocket man" whilst only 19% got the Beethoven? One has stood the test of time over two centuries and I somehow doubt that the other will. Glad to have bucked the trend by getting the Beethoven but not the other. Also got the next three least-guessed answers but only received 2 points in total.

For one the asked for the person for the other the music piece If beethoven would have been the answer and a random (meaning not one of his 3 best known) song was the answer for elton john I think the percentage would not be very different than is the case now.

I can only think of 2 elton john songs without looking it up, circle of life and candle in the wind.. btw,
