21-Q by Roger

In English, most question words start with the letter W: who, when, where, why. Even how contains a W.

But I took high school French several decades ago, and now my daughter is likewise studying the language. I recall that the question words often with the letter Q.

quand -when

qui – who/whom

quoi – what

quel or quelle + noun – what/which

qu’est-ce qui – what (subject of the verb)

The word for why contains a Q – pourquoi

Here are some QUESTION songs:

13 Questions– Seatrain (1970), produced by Beatles producer George Martin. Went to #49 on the Billboard charts in 1971, it has a bit of the feel of the band Chicago.

Questions 67 and 68 – Chicago (1969) ne the Chicago Transit Authority, until the transportation entity objected. Went to #71 on the Billboard charts in 1969.

Question – the Moody Blues (1970). Went to #21 on the Billboard charts in 1970.

Here’s a question: why did it take until the Class of 2018 for the Moody Blues to even get nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? YOU can vote once a day for up to five of the 19 nominees HERE until December 5, 2017!

From Question, written by Justin Hayward:

Why do we never get an answer
When we’re knocking at the door
With a thousand million questions
About hate and death and war?

‘Cause when we stop and look around us
There is nothing that we need
In a world of persecution
That is burning in its greed
