Yes! It’s Trivia Tuesday for Feb. 26th.  And, as you all know, Trivia Tuesday is brought to us by the fab folks @ Omnivore Recordings! Your number one destination for only the Tastiest music on the planet! Additionally, once more this week, Omnivore will award a free very Groovy CD to the first reader in with the correct answer to this week’s question! But, before we get to this weeks question, we want to recognize the two brilliant readers who weighed in on last weeks question, which was: What Lennon/McCartney song shares the same title as one of The Dave Clark Five’s many hits? The Answer is, “Because” But you knew that, dintja? last week Fred Vogel knew that and he was first in with the correct answer, as was Ron Wood, However Fred beat Ron, by just a few minutes! So Fred Vogel is last week’s recipient of the Omnivore CD! Congratulations once more Fred, and it’s a new week Ron, so another opportunity to nail the Trivia Quiz!

    Libbie Jo

    • Hey Libbie Jo,
      WAY TO GO! You did in fact nail the question and got all 6 correct!
      However Steve W., Mark C. And Jimmy got in just a couple minutes before you!
      But big congrats “From Me To You”

      • Close enough to be near the winner’s circle. For some reason this song list got me thinking about Johnnie Ray, the 60s singer with the sob in his voice, who had the mega hit “Cry.”. I thought he recorded “Heart and Soul” but couldn’t find the evidence. I saw him perform in Vegas once. He could sing!

  5. I had ’em except for Everly Bros. I see now that it’s Cryin in the Rain. I’ll have to Youtube it. I can’t hear it in my mind.

    • Hey D.
      Very Good!
      Quite frankly, I’m surprised at the high number of readers who answered the entire question so quickly and correctly! I personally thought the question was much more difficult!
      What the Hell Do I know?

  6. Chambers bros…time has come today
    Everly bros..crying in the rain

      Well done my friend, unfortunately Fred V. Steve W, and Jimmy all beat you in by just a few minutes!

    • Hey Jimmy,
      Great to see you here once more, as thee charter member of the SMS blog we’re always happy when you join in the conversation!
      Furthermore, you nailed the question! Well Done! However Steve W. Beat you by 7Minutes!
      Thanx Jimmy, don’t be a stranger!

    • Excellent Steve, and for EXTRA, extra credit, can you name the remaining 5 artists who had hits with the remaining 5 titles?

      • 1) “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell

        2) “Baby I Need Your Lovin’” Four Tops

        5) “Heart and Soul” Is this the same song that every piano student learns as a duet? Many artists recorded this, including Dean Martin and Mel Torme

        6) “I’m Your Puppett” James and Bobby Purify

        7) “Just My Imagination” Temptations

        9) “The Way You Do The Things You Do” Temptations

        • Hey Steve,
          Wow! You absolutely nailed ALL SIX!
          And, to answer your question about “Heart and Soul” ? YES! It is THAT “Heart and Soul” we included it because it was a huge hit for Jan and Dean ( a duet not a brother act) from 1961
          By the way, the song was written by Hoagy Carmichael with Lyrics by Frank Loesser. Hoagy initially envisioned it as a more “Updated and Jazzy” rendition of “Chopsticks” Hoagy originally thought of it more as a piano exercise rather than a hit song! But what does Hoagy know?

    • Hey Fred,
      Well done!
      However Steve W. Beat you by one tiny minute….But this is the right week for you to come in second! Since you were last week’s winner of an Omnivore CD your not eligible to win again till next week!
      But!…….Once again you did nail the question before the “Ink was dry on the page”
      See you next Tuesday!

        • Hey Fred,
          Yeah, sorry bout the date screw up, I was prepping the Tuesday question on Monday and accidentally hit the “Publish” button….Yikes, sorry ‘bout that!
