The SMS Trivia Question for 5 / 17

Here we are once again with the all new Trivia quiz for Tuesday May 17th! Brought to us each week by all the Groovey folks at Omnivore Recordings! Your place for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! But! Before we raise the curtain on this week’s Trivia question, we’d like to recognize all the truly groovey readers who weighed in on last weeks quiz! Only two reader’s braved the rough waters of last week’s question, but if you’re a regular reader you’ll recognize both their name’s. Fast Freddie Vogel took the first place ribbon, with “always” on it Jeffrey Conroy snagging second place! Between them they covered our question, which was all about “The Hollies, Graham Nash, and their classic “Stop, Stop, Stop” Way to go guy’s! This week we’re going to quiz you about another lyric, The Writer and his family ! Take a good look at these lyric’s below:

“Say hello to Valerie, Say hello to Vivian”

“Give them both my salary on the waters of oblivion”

. You know the drill, we need the title of the song that features the lyric above and we need the name of the artist who had a hit with the song in 1968!  Most important for this quiz, we need the name of the song writer who penned this 60’s classic? Additionally, the songwriter had a son who had at least one hit in the late 1990’s, and yes we need his name and the name of HIS hit ?  Lastly give us the title of at least Three more song’s from this iconic 60’s singer / songwriter and at least two additional song’s from HIS son?

In summary, here’s what we need::

1) Give us the title of the 60’s classic that feature’s the lyric we posted above ?

2) Give us the name of the artist who, in 1968, had  a hit with this 60’s Gem ?

3) Give us the name of the iconic 60’s singer / songwriter who wrote this powerful ballad?

4) Give us at least 3 more great song’s from this songwriter ?

5) Give us his son’s name, the name of his band, and the title to his hit from the late 90’s ?
