Yes indeed! It’s Trivia Tuesday for May 21st. Brought to us each Tuesday Morning by our Fab Friends over at Omnivore Recordings! The coolest place in the Universe specializing in all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! However before we get to this weeks question, we’d like to recognize the brilliant SMS readers who took a stab at last week’s question, which was: Can you name four hits from The Four Seasons that included a girls name in the title? The correct answer is, “Sherry” “Dawn” “Ronnie” and “C’Mon Marianne” Only two readers attempted to answer our question! Rob from Deep in the heart of Texas weighed in but only named two outta the four! Nice try Bruddah! But! Ron Wood From “Way down in FLA. nailed all four titles! However, as Ron was the previous week’s winner as well, no one qualifies for a very cool Omnivore C.D. this week!
But now! Here is this week’s question: Between 1958 and 1963, there were at least Four number one records in the U.S.A. that were totally sung in a foreign language ( for our purposes “foreign languages” are defined as any language other than English) Here’s what we need:
1) The title to each of the four songs?
2) The names of each of the four artists who took the song to number one?
3) The language each song is sung in?
SMS Note: In The USA there have been countless hit songs that have included selective lines of lyric sung in a “Foreign language” What were looking for are Four huge hits where THE ENTIRE SONG is sung in a foreign language! Uniquely, zero English words can be found in any one of these four chart toppers!
We realize this week’s question is particularly difficult, Sooo, to aid with the correct answer, if the artist used a “U.S. stage name” that will be acceptable!
Lastly, we’re certain you loved these four classic records and, like us, sang merrily along making up your own bizarre words in English, struggling as you try to make sense of these “Foreign” lyrics.
