Becky's Island Music Trivia Quiz #333 - 7/11/07

I Hihd You The Fihst Time

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 "I hihd you the fihst time" (I heard you the first time). 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 "hihd" and "fihst." It's more fun if you say it out loud!

1. Roger McGuinn, David Crosby, Glenn Clark, Chris Hillman, and Michael Clarke
2. Depeche Mode sang about "your own" this in 1990
3. A hit for both Gladys Knight and the Pips and Marvin Gaye
4. Singer of the Guess Who
