The Questions

Round 2: 10 Disney films by songs [“The ‘Tenable’ Tower will show 10 songs from Disney animations; we are looking for the names of the 10 animated films in which each song originally appears.”]

The songs: Painting the Roses Red / Little April Shower / Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo / Baby Mine / The Second Star to the Right / When You Wish Upon A Star / Some Day My Prince Will Come / Best of Friends / I Wanna Be Like You / Part of Your World

Round 3: The 10 Haribo shapes that are not bottles [Shapes that feature in the standard packs of Haribo Starmix, Tangfastics or Supermix, excluding cola and milk bottles; according to the official Haribo website as of 10 December 2020.]

Round 4: The first 10 Top 40 singles by Elton John with four or more words in the title [According to the Official Chart Company as of 3 March 2020; this list does include collaborations with other artists but does not include “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” or “I Saw Her Standing There”.]

Round 5 (The Captain’s Round): 10 football clubs by their managers at the start of the 2020/21 season [“The ‘Tenable’ Tower will show 10 names of football managers, all of whom were the manager of a football club in the top four divisions of the men’s English Football League at the beginning of the 2020/21 season; we are looking for the names of the clubs which correspond to these 10 managers.”]
