Quiz Description

All the answers in this musically themed quiz are "supervocalics." A "supervocalic" is defined as any word or phrase that contains all five vowels A-E-I-O-U in any order without repetition. For the purposes of this quiz, "and sometimes Y" will be ignored, although there are two answers that fulfill the condition for a supervocalic+Y and one answer with more than one Y. Please note: In order to ensure that my answers are properly "supervocalic," I will be very specific in what answers I ask for, with the requested answer categories in CAPITAL LETTERS. In addition, any answer that is not a "supervocalic" will be marked wrong.
