Did these events occur while you were driving? or your brother was driving? did they occur while you had stopped somewhere?

Did these events occur while you were driving? no, but irrelevant or your brother was driving? yes, but irrelevant did they occur while you had stopped somewhere? no - they could have, but it would have been somewhat less likely

Still no puzzle about bees, but this one has at least some allusion to bees (abeilles).

Anyway, bees (or the absence of them) relevant?
Were you both in the car during the first event? during the second? were there more people in your car?

Did any of the events involve that you or your brother saw something? (inside the car? outside the car?) hear something? talked to each other?

Were the other relevant people present in the location where the event(s) happened? Did you see them? Did you notice about their presence (about their relevance?) only after the events? Were these people, or some of them, walking? driving a car? riding a bike? bicycle? horse?

Relevant that you drove from Pennsylvania to Illinois? could it have happened on some other trip? on an aircraft? in a train? not en voyage at all?

This thing that you heard: was it words being spoken? sung? this, among other things - good question was it something either of you said? no, nor was it something that either of us sang, because we both know better.

How was the quiz?

Do these works belong to the same genre? If so, or even if not, to what genre do they belong?

(This involves a list that may not be well-formed, so I will make a start: classical (opera? operetta? choral?); pop; rock; country; soul; jazz; blues; punk; reggae; anything after that about which I would not have a clue.)

Was the music you heard something that was from a tape? or CD? or DVD? that you? or your brother? put into the player? Or was it from over the airwaves (over the radio)?

How about this one:

"We heard _____, then discussed it. Our appreciation for _____ would have been much different if these events took place in the opposite order."

Will we know everything when the specific musical piece is found?
