  1. Melinda could also be from Dylan’s Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues. “Sweet Melinda, the peasants call her the goddess of gloom”

    • Hey Mark!
      Great to see you here at SMS! And of course you are correct! For the record, the “Melinda we were thinking of, from Neal Diamond’s debut single…”Melinda was mine till I saw her!

  3. I almost forgot! Simon and Garfunkle
    But I work in his factory
    And I curse the life I’m living
    And I curse my poverty
    And I wish that I could be
    Oh, I wish that I could be
    Oh, I wish that I could be Richard Cory

  4. Okay, I admit it, this one took a lot of “research”. so I defer to anyone who tried to answer this one cold.
    1) “Abigail Beecher” My History Teacher Freddy Canon
    2)” Bad Man Jose” You’re in trouble, plenty Jay and the Americans
    3) “Bernadette” “and when I speak of you, I see envy in other men’s eyes” Four Tops

    7) “Molly Jones” and Molly says this . . . “op-La-Di. Op-La-Da” The Beatles! – Everyone loves the Beatles!
    8) “Melinda” “Come Away Melinda” (an anti-war song from the ’60) TimRose (sorry Bill Gates)
    9) “Nancy” This one is near and dear – “Nancy, With Laughing Eyes” Frank, Blue Eyes, Sinatra
    10) “Pierre” Carol King

    • Excellent job, Jim, but a few corrections:

      Bad Man Jose, is from “Come a Little Bit Closer” by Jan and the Americans

      I think “Desmond” is also from Ob La Di, Ob La Da.

      And it’s Jennifer Juniper, not Jupiter (inspired by Jennifer Warnes).

      “Nancy” might be from Rocky Raccoon (“Her name was McGill, but she called herself Lil, but everyone knew her as Nancy”)

      • Steven, I think your corrections are spot-on-accurate. But more to the point, even where some of my suggestions technically fit, your alternates are probably more what Rick was thinking when he wrote the question.

    • Hey Jim, WOW, you nearly nailed it! Up here are a couple thoughts on your answers, first, as much as I love “Israelites, Desmond, performed the song his name doesn’t appear in the tune! And the “Desmond” Was referring to is from “Ob la de la da…”Desmod and Molly Jones” next, You said…”Sorry Bill Gates” Not sure what, your getting at ? Please fill us in!
      Lastly, I had a feeling this one might “Push your buttons…As it should! And I expected there would be a “Toss up” between Fraank’s awesome “Nancy with the laughing eye’s And the truth is I was referring to Nancy from “Ob la de Ob la da
      Yet YOU did Nail it Lastly, the “Melinda we had in mins was from Neil Diamond’s’ debut hit “Solitary Man”
      Thanx my old friend!

      • Rick, there is no “Nancy” in Ob La Di Ob La Da. Maybe you are thinking of Rocky Raccoon?

        • Hey Steve!
          As usual you are correct!
          Clearly, I got my Molly and Nancy’s confused!
          “I hate when that happens!

    • Hey Jim,
      Great job! But we have one question Did you intenonally write “Jan” and The Americans or was that a typo?


    Whenever Richard Cory went down town,
    We people on the pavement looked at him:
    He was a gentleman from sole to crown,
    Clean favored, and imperially slim.

    And he was always quietly arrayed,
    And he was always human when he talked;
    But still he fluttered pulses when he said,
    “Good-morning,” and he glittered when he walked.

    And he was rich—yes, richer than a king—
    And admirably schooled in every grace:
    In fine, we thought that he was everything
    To make us wish that we were in his place.

    So on we worked, and waited for the light,
    And went without the meat, and cursed the bread;
    And Richard Cory, one calm summer night,
    Went home and put a bullet through his head.

    • Wow! Mr. G” haven’t heard or seen that lyric since the early 60’s!
      Thanx and WELL DONE!
      R. Like in R and B!
