Welcome to the Jazz Quiz
for January

A Fine Line

This month we challenge you to identify fifteen songs that have been popular with jazz musicians but where we have given you just two lines from the lyrics. How many can you identify?


Rodgers and Hart


Give yourself an extra point if you are able to identify the Rodgers and Hart song introduced by the lines:

You don't know that I felt good
When we up and parted
You don't know I knocked on wood
Gladly broken hearted
Worrying is through, I sleep all night
Appetite and health restored
You don't know how much I'm bored!

A link to the answers is at the bottom of the page - don't forget to check your score.



Which songs do these lines come from?


1. I've flown around the world in a plane
I've settled revolutions in Spain


2. Have you seen a valley green with spring
Where my heart can go a-journeying



Bix Beiderbecke




3. 'Neath your bright southern moon
Once more I'll croon








4. I never miss a thing -
I've had measles and the mumps.


5. Have you ever heard two turtledoves
Bill and coo


6. I'd work for you, I'd slave for you
I'd be a beggar or knave for you



Oscar Brown Jr




7. Breaking rocks out here on the chain gang
Breaking rocks and serving my time








8. We will thrive on, keep alive on,
Just nothing but kisses,


9. The seven wonders of the world I've seen,
And many are the places I have been.




WC Handy





10. You've wrecked the life
Of many a poor girl







11. Boy, if I were a lamp I'd light
Or if I were a banner I'd wave


12. Build your dreams to the stars above
But when you need someone true to love


13. Oh honey don't be late
I want to be there when the band starts playin'


14. Birds flyin' high, you know how I feel
Sun in the sky, you know how I feel


15. If there's a gleam in her eye
Each time she straightens your tie
