Just searching around and came across some Smiths trivia:

<a href='http://www.funtrivia.com/playquiz.cfm?qid=98830&origin=http://www.funtrivia.com/dir/1724.html' target='_blank'>The Smiths And Morrissey</a> - I got 13/15 on this one.

<a href='http://www.funtrivia.com/playquiz.cfm?qid=29630&origin=http://www.funtrivia.com/dir/1724.html' target='_blank'>First Lines Of Smiths Songs</a> - Very easy - 15/15

<a href='http://www.funtrivia.com/playquiz.cfm?qid=135633&origin=http://www.funtrivia.com/dir/1724.html' target='_blank'>Short Sharp Smiths</a> - Fairly hard, only gives snippets of lyrics - 18/20 for me on this one.

<a href='http://www.funtrivia.com/playquiz.cfm?qid=127237&origin=http://www.funtrivia.com/dir/1724.html' target='_blank'>General Smiths Questions</a> - Not all too hard, but Question 11 is either a trick question or the creator of this quiz is very ignorant. 18/20 again on this one.

Ooh, quizzes, so addictive!

12/15 (that one was quite hard!)
15/15
20/20 (I like that one, so many Smiths lyrics quizzes are insanely easy)
19/20 (that Oscillate Wildly question is veeery strange... should we issue a formal complaint? <!--emo&;)-->Image<!--endemo-->)

I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving
England is mine, it owes me a living
But ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
Oh, ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
But we cannot cling to the old dreams anymore
No, we cannot cling to those dreams
Does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body?
I dunno...
Under the iron bridge we kissed
And although I ended up with sore lips
It just wasn't like the old days anymore
No, it wasn't like those days
Am I still ill...?

I did the first 2 and got 13/15 and 14/15 respectively, the others seemed beyond hard, because I haven't heard all the smiths songs and evidently I don't know much about them...

I wondered is Morrissey really devious, truculent and unreliable....

<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>I have solved the Oscillate Wildly mystery!!</span>

According to 'The Songs That Saved Your Life', Morrissey named Oscillate Wildly after Oscar Wilde. So it is a tribute to him, albeit in name only, because (obviously) there aren't any lyrics.

Oh, well I hate to say I already knew that. But I did. I've read STSYL about 20 times, so if it's is there it's in my head. Didn't realise it was such a mystery.

See, I thought you would have already known that, but in the bit above when you were saying how many you got right on the quizzes, you said the question about Oscillate Wildly being a tribute to Oscar Wilde from Morrissey was <!--QuoteBegin--></div><table border='0' align='center' width='95%' cellpadding='3' cellspacing='1'><tr><td>QUOTE </td></tr><tr><td id='QUOTE'><!--QuoteEBegin-->either a trick question or the creator of this quiz is very ignorant<!--QuoteEnd--></td></tr></table><div class='postcolor'><!--QuoteEEnd--> so I was a bit confused. Did you just not have the book at that point?

Random point, but Moz just got mentioned on Jack Dee live at the Apollo, for how pHd students dance at discos...

Geez Elko, that was hard! <!--emo&:)-->Image<!--endemo--> I mean, not all of it, but it certainly had its tough points, that coupled with how terrible the internet I have at my school is, it was a rather diffucult venture <!--emo&:)-->Image<!--endemo-->. Good job!

Well I did try to make it pretty taxing. Could only be bothered to put in 8 questions though.
