The SMS Trivia Question Of The Week 10 / 8

Yes Indded! It’s Trivia Tuesday for October 8th!  Brought to us each Tuesday morning by our friends over at Omnivore Recordings  Your one and only place to find all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know!  However! before we get to this week’s question, we’d like to recognize the readers who showed up and took a shot at last week’s question! Which was: We wanted to know everything about “The Little Old Lady From Pasadena!  Who sang this clever hit? what street she drove? What kind of car did she drive? Where did she park her car and what kind of flowers did she grow in her garden?   The correct answer, of course, is Jan and Dean, Colorado Blvd,  A shiny Red Super Sport Dodge, parked in a Rickity old garage!  And she grew White Gardenias in her garden! Surprisingly, only tthree of you folks showed up with the correct and complete answer: Freakin’ Fast Freddie Vogel, Steven Wildfire Winogradsky  and “No, I’m not THAT Ron Wood. Congrats Gents, with a cool Omnivore CD on it’s way to Mr. Wood!

But Now! It certainly is time for this week’s new Trivia Question: According to the singer of this crazy great hit from the late Sixties, It’s time to:

“Hand Out the arms and ammo, we’re going to blast our way through here”.   “We’ve got to get together sooner ot later because the revolution’s here.” And you know it’s right, and you know that it’s right”

“Look sharp now,” here’s what we need:

1) The title of this great song that includes the lyric featured above?

2)  The name of the artist who enjoyed this huge hit?

3) Which 60’s Superstar Guitar slinger produced this great record?

AND for SMS Extra Credit name at least one feature film that includes this record in it’s soundtrack?

    • Hey Johnny Z
      It’s so great to see you back here at SMS
      Hope you’re around to stay!
      All my best,

  1. Thunderclap Newman, Something in the Air..I think Pete Townsend ( the original guitar slinger) produced

  2. “Something in the Air” by Thunderclap Newman.
    Produced by Pete Townsend.
    Featured in the film, Magic Christian, with the great Peter Sellers

    As a side note, whenever I played this song, I would add my own last verse:
    Call out the bomb squad, baby
    Because something’s gonna blow
    We’re gonna to tear down this old nation
    And a new one’s gonna grow
    And you know it’s right…

    • Hey Fred,
      Always a pleasure when you show up, but this week is particularly fun!
      Love your additional verse! It fits in seamlessly!
      Hmmmmm, were you a ghost writer on the original?
      As always great stuff Fred!

  3. Something in the air by Thunderclap Newman; used in film The Magic Christian with Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr; produced by Pete Townshend
