Yes indeed, it’s Trivia Tuesday for October 20th! Brought to us, as they do, each week by all the Groovey people at Omnivore Recordings! Your number one place for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! But! Hold the phone, cuz before we get to this weeks new trivia quiz, we want to recognize the brilliant readers who weighed in on last week’s question, which was: All about “Pen Names” or “Nom de plumes” we gave you 5 of our favorites, and asked you who they really were? First in, but with only part of the correct answers was relative new comer Clark Besch! Close but no cigar Clark, and we all know “Close” only counts in Horse shoes and Hand Grenades and… Covid 19! Next in was our old friend and one of the original “SMS Super Genius’s” Mr. Steve Winogradsky! With all the right answers! Way to go brother Steven! And lastly, another relatively new comer Mr. Simon Craddock! Who cleverly pointed out that “Doctor Winston O Boogie is a great example of “Dock n Roll” Damn funny Simon!
But now! It’s time for the new Trivia Question of the week!…And this week it’s all about one word! You guessed it…“Zebra” And here is your question: Give us the titles to at least three Top 40 hits from the 60’s that include the word Zebra somewhere in the lyrics? Additionally give us the name of the artists who recorded each song? Lastly, one of the three song’s also includes the word “Camel” which song includes the word “Camel” in the lyric? Finally, to achieve SMS Super Genius Status, GIVE US THE CAMEL’S NAME?
In Summary here’s what we need:
1) Give us the titles to at least 3 Top 40 hits from the 60’s whose lyrics include the word “Zebra ?
2) Give us the names of the 3 artists who recorded and released these three gems ?
3) One of these three songs also features the word “Camel” in the lyric, which song is it ?
4) And, to achieve the coveted status of “SMS Super Genius” What is the Camel’s name?
Just so we’re all clear, all 3 song’s have to be singles that charted in the top 40 on Billboards “Hot 100 Chart” in the 1960’s
