11/ my answer to the title question is "Why, yes, I certainly can!. But I think we need a correction for #10--isn't the line from The Monkees theme "The only time we get restless is for something new"?

Yeah, i cannot believe i missed the Jeffersons. Or the Monkees theme?! For awhile i dug that show and was truly sad my mother and grandmother wouldnt allow pics of stars & musicians on my bedroom wall.

Well, Jed Clampett did shoot at "food" and up came a bubblin' CREW (oil). Not "CRUDE". That's why i missed that one. This test was hard. And i thought i knew most all of th songs

Come and listen to my story about a man named Jed
A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
And then one day he was shootin at some food,
And up through the ground come a bubblin crude.

Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.

Well the first thing you know ol Jed's a millionaire,
The kinfolk said "Jed move away from there"
Said "Californy is the place you ought to be"
So they loaded up the truck and they moved to Beverly

Hills, that is. Swimmin pools, movie stars.

"Crude" oil is oil that comes straight from the ground and hasn't been refined yet. It is Crude.

Looks like a lot of people missed the Monkees question. Car 54 was the easiest, always remember Idlewild, also Hillbillies and Green Acres.

10/11 Missed The Monkees of all things!

So did I. And I thought the verse was:

We go where we want to
Do what we like to do
The only time we get restless
Is for something new

Granted, I've never seen the lyrics to the second verse written out, just heard them [I was four when The Monkees first came on the air]. Where am I wrong?

9 of 11! I never would have guessed Dobie Gillis. I can't believe I missed the Monkees one! They're one of my favorite (manufactured) bands 😉

10/11 I can't believe I missed #7.
I actually did better on this one than I did on the 70s edition.

10/11. But I’m giving myself a correct answer for The Monkees because those specific lyrics are definitely not on the television version. Only on the single. Which I didn’t own. Because I was way too cool for that. 😆

10 for 11. Charles Addams was from Westfield, NJ, my hometown and you can see the house that inspired the Addam's Mansion there. Every year they throw an Addams Fest, it grew from a hundred people to tens of thousands. Same thing happened to Andy Griffith's hometown of Mount Airy, now they get people from all over the world visiting.
