17. ?The Mighty Quinn - Manfred Mann?


#17 was a confusing question. I tried to clarify it at the top.Oh well.
the movie name was "The Mighty Quinn" which alot of people also call
the song.ProgShred also gave a Mighty Quinn answer but a different artist,
Manfred Mann is the artist I was looking for.The song is actually named,
"Quinn The Eskimo". I will credit both of you with the answer.I should have
read the facts page a little better and gave a clearer clue.

#5 is either:

American Girl,
Refugee,
Mary Jane's Last Dance, or
Listen To Your Heart.

BTW, the song on CSI is NOT 'Baba O'Reilly', it is "Who Are You"- same group.
(I also watched that show, for awhile. Would've been better if they had used "Eminence Front".)

Sorry, #5 isn't any of these. Petty's duet partner is with a former member of Fleetwood Mac.
Remember, alphabetical line-up so #5 starts with the letter E.


You, have to read the clue more closely, the show was CSI New York in which the theme
song is Baba O'Reilly.CSI has three shows, all of which use Who songs as their theme song.

CSI...Who Are You
CSI Miami....Won't Get Fooled Again
CSI New York...Baba O'Reilly

OK, this one seems difficult. Stevie Nicks is the right artist. Now we need the song
that contains a number.Tom Petty's wife had a heavy southern draw, when she said
age, Stevie heard it as something else. Hence, the name of the song. When Tom Petty
and his wife first met she was very young.
