  1. “Code Monkey” is a song about a lovelorn programmer written by what geek-friendly troubadour who also wrote the theme songs for both Portal games?
  2. Peter Gabriel’s “Shock the Monkey” is often (incorrectly) assumed to be about a well known experiment in which subjects were led to believe they were administering electric shocks to another person as part of a memory test. Name the Yale psychologist who conducted that experiment and wrote about his findings in the 1974 book Obedience to Authority.
  3. What is the name of the potent potable shown below, a premixed cocktail that inspired a 1987 song?mmonkey2
  4. What Barenaked Ladies song extols the virtues of Kraft Dinner regardless of one’s level of poverty or wealth and also poses the musical question “Haven’t you always wanted a monkey?”
  5. In The Jungle Book, what simian singer expresses his desire to emulate humans in the song “I Wan’na Be Like You”?

  1. Jonathan Coulton
