The SMS Trivia Question of the week 11/10

Yes, it’s Trivia Tuesday, only without all the noise, for November 10th! Brought to us by all those Groovey people at Omnivore Recordings! Your place for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! And a whole lot more! But, before we get into this weeks question we’re going to recognize all the brilliant readers who weighed in on last week’s question, which was: A lyrical question! We asked a series of questions about a lyric from one of our favorite records from the 1960’s First in and on the money was our friend and multiple “Super Genius” Mr. Edmund Clark Simmons! Next in, Long time reader Mr. Steve Winogradsky!Followed closely by another serious long time reader Mr. Fred Vogel! Next up was our old dear friend and an original “Super Genius, Mr. Jimmy Gorman! Who, as he often does shared a great clip of Ray Stevens performing live on the BBC, Mr. Business Man! Thank you so very much Mr. Jimmy! Finally rounding out this group of very special Gentlemen is  the always brilliant Mr. Curtis Stone! Congratulations gentleman thank you one and all!

But now! It’s time for the NEW SMS Trivia Question of the week:This weeks question is about four separate and different Artists and four separate and different songs! To simplify things we’ve divided the question into two parts, Part A and Part B…. So let’s begin: In the mid sixties two separate and different songs, both titled  “I’m A Man”we’re Top 40 hits! To be clear the two songs were completely different, recorded by two totally different bands. The only similarity between the two songs was their title “I’m a Man”! Your question, give us the names of the two bands that enjoyed the hits? And for SMS Super genius status: In 1969 another popular band had a Top 40 hit with a cover of one of the earlier “I’m a Man’s”. What is the name of the third band? And… Part B. Also in the mid sixties two separate and different songs both titled  “The Look Of Love” we’re both Top 40  hits! To be clear the two songs recorded by two totally different artists, with the only similarity between the two songs was their title. “The Look of Love”. Your question? Give us the names of the two artists that enjoyed the hits? And for SMS Super Genius status: One of the two “Look of Loves” was featured in a James Bond movie, which “Look of Love” was it and which James Bond movie featured it?

In summary, here’s what we need:

Part A…

1) In the mid 60’s two separate and different songs titled “I’m a Man” became two Top 40 hits for two different bands! What are the names of the two bands who each had a hit with “I’m a Man”?

2) Later in 1969 a third band had a hit with a cover of one of the “I’m a Man songs referenced above! What band had the hit cover version in 1969?

Part B…

1) In the mid 60’s, two separate and different songs titled “The Look of Love” became two Top 40 hits for two different artists! What are the names of the two artists who had a hit with “The Look of Love””?

2) Lastly, one of the “Look of Love” recordings was featured in a “James Bond” film

    • Hey Steve,
      I’m surprised that the Part B section stumped you a bit! But you’re not alone, nobody had a correct answer! But! In 1964 Lesley Gore released a new record that peaked at #27 on the Billboard chart titled “Look of Love” written by Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich! Once you hear it you will remember!
      Thanx Steve
      Rick
