How Well Do You Know Broadway?

One of the categories on a recent Jeopardy! episode was “Broadway on the Pop Charts.”  Here are the answers; just come up with the correct question for each.  I’ll give those questions in a future post:

  1. In 1969 the 5th Dimension topped the charts with a medley of “Aquarius” & “Let the Sunshine In” from this musical.
  2. “Rich Girl” by Gwen Stefani is based on this song from “Fiddler on the Roof.”
  3. Barry Manilow took this song from “Cats” to the Top 40.
  4. Jay-Z admitted he lied about seeing “Annie” on Broadway as a kid to convince the rights holders to let him use its music in this song.
  5. Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” riffed on “My Favorite Things” by this pair, so 90% of the royalties go to the rights holders for that song.

Feel free to leave a comment, and please come back – I write and post often!  And if you like what I have to say and how I say it, you’ll probably enjoy my novels as well.  They’re listed below, and you can read more about them on my improved website, designed and built by my son Don,  On my site, you’ll also find excerpts of my books that you can read – please check it out!
