Congratulations, you’ve survived yet another New Year’s Eve! Happy New Year from all of us at Sixties Music Secrets! And yes, it’s here, the SMSSMSivia Question for New Years Day! But first, we’d like to recognize the one and only loyal SMS reader who correctly answered last weeks question, which was all about classic Xmas songs from iconic 60’s artists. Only the amazing Steven Winogradsky weighed in with the correct answer! “Fa, la la la la” Steve! Additionally, Denise Shoemaker also showed up with some Xmas cheer for us all, thank you Lady D.
But now, it is time for the SMS Trivia Question for New Year’s Day!
And here’s the set up: Without debate, Lennon and McCartney established themselves as two of the greatest songwriters in music history, however prior to completely mastering their craft The Beatles covered several songs by many of history’s most iconic songwriters!
Here’s your question: We will give you the names of 5 iconic songwriters and you tell us what song of theirs, The Beatles recorded and released? So, in no particular order, here are the FIVE songwriters! You, give us at least one song title from each writer that was recorded by The Beatles!
1) Burt Bacharach ?
2) Carole King ?
3) Berry Gordy ?
4) Smokey Robinson ?
5) Meredith Wilson ?
There they are, one song from each, recorded by The Beatles.
However, for Extra Credit and a chance to reach “Super Genius status” Here is your bonus question:
With regard to Meredith Wilson, the song we’re looking for originally appeared in a Feature Film! What is the title of this great movie AND, Who performed the song in the film?
There you have it, as always if you have any questions, go to the comments section, and leave your question there! We’ll answer you immediately.
