Yes indeed! It is time for the all new SMS Trivia Quiz for Tuesday January 17th. Brought to us each week by all our friends and neighbors over at Omnivore Recordings! Your only true option for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! But Now! Befor we get into this week’s question, we’d like to recognize all the brilliant readers who chimed in on last week’s quiz, which was all about George Harrison, the house he lived in and the songs he wrote! Sounds simple enough don’t it? Yeah, we thought so too, but only one brilliant reader showed up with all the right answers and that was our nearly weekly “SMS Super Genius” Mr. Steve Winogradsky! Is it lonely at the top Steve? Congratulations yet once more Mr. Dub Ya!
But now it’s time for the brand new Trivia question for January 17th. 2023: Take a look at the lyrics below:
“I recall the yellow cotton dress”
“Foaming like a wave”
” On the ground around your knees”
“I still see her standing by the water”
Standing there looking out to sea”
“And is she waiting there for me”
“On the beach where we used to run”
There are your two lyrics! As usual we need to know the titles of the two 60’s classic’s that feature these two lyric’s as well as the names of the artists who recorded and released these late 60’s mega hits ? Lastly, we need to know who composed these timeless tunes ?
While you search for the melody that carry’s the poetry, take a moment, click on the link below and browse Omnivore’s awesome catalog of the coolest music in the known world and beyond!
Remember, you can answer the weekly trivia question as often as you like, but can only win a Groovey Omnivore CD every 30 days!
Ditto what Mr. Winogradsky said.
On a side note, I did not receive an email this morning. I had to go onto the site.
