The older members will remember when Mike (2step) used to ask trivia/quiz questions on the old forum. They were always fun to figure out. As a tribute to Mike I am going to see if I can stump you with some quizzes.

Since most things are easy to find through Google, I have worded the quiz in such a way that you can't easily Google up the answer. The song title is in the quiz question..

I will send the mp3 to the first person that gets the singer and song.

Quiz Question #1:

This lady (who was big in the 1980s and 90s) sings about a road in winter. If you walk along the road in the fall you will see the leaves changing color. You will definitely see yellow. You will also see a river and a bog. Who is the singer and what is the song title?

Note: She still performs today.
I will put another quiz after this one is answered.

Nice try Lmofle, but that's not it.
The song I am looking for is more up tempo.
Notice what I have underlined in my post.

Lmofle, well done! It is indeed Yellow River Road by Suzy Bogguss. I figured it would last a bit longer before someone got it. Lol

I will send you the mp3.
The song can be heard in the video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXCRahWFkqI

Here is Quiz #2:
This song was first recorded in the 50s by a male singer. A lot of people have covered it but I LOVE a 2008 version by a lady singer the best. Pat yourself on the back if you get this crazy song.
Who is the singer and what is the song title?

Quiz 2 "Crazy" Leanne Rimes. Originally recorded by Willie Nelson! Big hit for Patsy Cline. Willies version or re-recording became popular later!

Hey Pete. I was about to give up on anybody taking a guess. Nice answer but no cigar, lol.
I'll paste the quiz here again so you don't have to scroll up. Also I'll throw in another clue.

Quiz #2:
This song was first recorded in the 50s by a male singer. A lot of people have covered it but I LOVE a 2008 version by a lady singer the best. Pat yourself on the back if you get this crazy song.
Who is the singer and what is the song title?
Clue: I would Love it if you had gotten it on the 1st try, but I won't think any less of you because you didn't.
