Becky's Island Music Trivia Quiz #331 - 6/27/07

Heah's Yah Beah

If you've ever been to Boston, you know that people from that city have a different accent than those from the rest of the United States. The Boston accent's most characteristic feature is the dropped "R" before a vowel, resulting in phrases like "heah's yah beah" (here's your beer). You might have heard it in "The Departed" or "Good Will Hunting," or in a speech by one of the Kennedy brothers. Nobody loves to hear a Boston accent more than me, and in this quiz, all the answers contain at least one word with the sound in "heah" and "beah." It's more fun if you say it out loud!

1. If you didn't have these, you couldn't listen to music
