The SMS Trivia Question of the Week 4/6

I Yep! It’s Trivia Tuesday for April 6th! Brought to us by all the great folks at Omnivore Recordings! Your absolute destination for all the greatest music that you didn’t know, you didn’t know and more! However, before we get into this weeks question, we’d like to recognize all the Tres Cool Readers who chimed in on last weeks question, which was an Anagram! “Deep Zen Pill” does in fact unscramble to become Led Zeppelin! First in, with all the right answers for the third week, our old friend Mr. Jeffery Conroy! Nice work yet again Mr. C ! Close on Jeff’s heels was the brilliant Clark Besch!  Clark was quick but didn’t quite get the whole question correct! Well Clark there’s another opportunity just below! Next in was long time reader and multiple Trivia quiz winner more times than we can count was the ever brilliant Fast Fred Vogel! naturally nailing the question! Libbie Jo Snyder, just dropped in to say hi, and we always like that! But, rounding out the brilliant minds was, to our surprise and pleasure was our dear old friend in music and more Ms. Doranne Croon! So very great to see you Doranne, please don’t be a stranger!

But now! It’s time for this weeks brand spankin’ new Trivia Quiz for the week!  This weeks question is a lyrical one, soooo here’s your lyric:

“She said, ‘There is no reason’
And the truth is plain to see
But I wandered through my playing cards
And would not let her be
One of sixteen vestal virgins
Who were leaving for the coast
And although my eyes were open
They might just as well been closed”

There you have it, a generous sampling of the entire second verse of this classic favorite! Now, we need you to give us the lyric’s to the chorus that immediately follows this second verse! Additionally give us the titles to at least two more Top 40 hits, including the one that in an unusual move hit the charts as a “Live” recording some four years after it’s debut as only an album track in 1967 ?

In summary, here’s what we need:

1) What is the title of the 60’s classic song that includes the lyrics we posted just above ?

2) What is the name of this “Progressive group that wrote and recorded this 60’s Gem ?

3) Give us the lyrics to the chorus that immediately follows the above lyric ?

4) Give us the titles to at least two more top 40 hits, including the “Live” recording ?

Yeah, this weeks quiz is a bit wordy ! But don’t we all have a lot of free time on our hands these days?
