It’s “Back to School” for many folks…But! It’s Trivia Tuesday on August 14 for everyone ! Before we reveal this week’s question, we gotta recognize the readers who “nailed” last week’s question, which was an anagram. “Hold an encore” actually spells out Leonard Cohen ! First in and always fabulous was the “First and Faithful Leonard Cohen Fan JULIE, who nailed the question in record time! Jim Gorman also weighed in with his usual tasty and obscure contribution, showcasing Madeleine Peyroux in his answer to the quiz… Congrats and thank yous’ To “Bofe uv ya’s”.
But Now, it’s time for this week’s question ; In 1968 Reginald Kenneth Dwight was going through a very dark period in his life. Frustrated and struggling to kick-start a floundering music career while he was engaged to marry a woman who he had no feelings for, Reggie, lost in deep depression, placed his head inside a lit oven in a failed attempt at suicide! Several years later, Elton John and his writing partner Bernie Taupin wrote a song chronicling that period and the events surrounding them!
Your Question? What is the title of that song, what classic Elton John album did it appear on and for “Extra Credit” Who is “Sugar Bear” ?
