Yes it is! Time to kick back, take a deep breath and relax into The SMS Trivia question for Tuesday Jan. 19th! Brought to us by all the great folks at Omnivore Recordings! Your number one spot for the greatest music in the known world and beyond. But,  before we get to this weeks question, we’d like to recognize the very cool readers who weighed in on last weeks question, which was; An Anagram! “Library Woman” actually and hilariously unscrambles to become Barry Manilow! And for some reason that just cracks us up!….Are you with me? Meanwhile, first in and at this point, the only one in with all the correct answers was Simon Craddock! Way to go Simon!
But now! It’s time for the new SMS Trivia Question: And, here’s your question; Give us the titles to at least 3 classic songs from the 60’s that include the word “Cinnamon”  in their title? And here’s the hard part, we also want the name of each of the artists that recorded the song with Cinnamon in it’s title?
In summary, here’s what we need:

1) Give us the titles to at least 3 songs with the word “Cinnamon” in the title ?

2) Give us the names of the artists who recorded these 60’s classics ?

  1. My earliest recollection of a “CINNAMON” song is is: “Cinnamon Cinder” -“it’s a very nice dance.” by the Pastel 6. I think I was listening to that song at about the same time “SUGAR SHACK” by Jimmy Gilmore was on the air. God, JHS I guess!
    Tommy Roe did (and I THOUGHT it was Dylan at first), “CINNAMON”.
    There was (later ’60’s) Derek doing “CINNAMON-LET ME IN.”
    Of course Neil Young (not ’60’s) rocked with “Cinnamon Girl” GREAT STUFF!!!
    I’d like to mention as an aside the cool song mashup by Tommy James where he paired “Clapton, Hendrix & Young with: “Cinnamon/Sunshine — VERY COOL!
    All great songs here..thanx..wood

    • Hey Wood!
      Whoa, I think you triple nailed this question! I was particularly impressed that you correctly cited Tommy Roe’s recording of “Cinnamon” rather than the more popular version by Derek!
      Also, it’s true that the lyric in C C Cinnamon Cinder does in fact state “It’s a very nice dance” ? The truth is the Cinnamon Cinder was a “Teen Club” in The Sanfernando Valley and own’d by popular Disc Jockeyed Bob Eubanks….Bob may be best known as the promoter of The Beatles first show at The Hollywood Bowl, where I believe you worked as an usher! Right?
      Meanwhile, great post! Always love to see you show up at SMS
      CHEERS my old friend!
