The SMS Trivia Question of the Week 11 /16

Sixties music secrets photoYes! It’s Trivia Tuesday for Nov. 16th! Brought to us by all the very cool folks at Omnivore Recordings! The only spot on earth where you’ll find only the greatest music you never knew, you never knew! But! Before we reveal this weeks all new trivia quiz, we’d like to recognize the brilliant readers who chimed in on last week’s question, which was: All about the backwards recorded lyric from “Rain” by The Beatles! Coming in first, with all the right answers was a long time SMS Super Genius from way across the world (as defined by his name) was Mr. Larry in Munich! Well done dear boy! Following Larry was yet another Super long time “Super Genius” Mr. Fred Vogel! You never fail Mr. V. Thank you and congrats! Taking the third position this week was a relatively new SMS SG,  the ever brilliant Mr. Simon Craddock! Wrapping things up was our old friend and frequent Super Genius Mr. Edmund Clark Simmons! Congrats to both you gents, one and all!

But now! It’s time for this week’s new Trivia Question: Your question today will be an Anagram and a wee bit more! Here’s your Anagram… “Aye Loser”

Our Anagram got his start in the mid Sixties working with British Pop Star turned Producer / Manager Adam Faith. Although he garnered little attention in the U.K. it was enough to get the attention of mega producer Richard Perry, and would go on to have a string of hits together in the U.K. And the U.S.. Tell us who our Anagram unscrambles to become and give us the titles to at least three of his hits? Additionally give us the names of two other recording artists who’ve recorded songs written by our Anagram ?

In summary, here’s what we need:

1) Who does “Aye Loser” unscramble to become ?

2) Give us the titles to at least three of his hits ?

3) Lastly, for “Super Genius status Give us the names of at least two additional Superstar artists’  who have recorded songs written by our Anagram ?

  1. YES!!! I’m on the “LATE FREIGHT” AGAIN!
    You have now teleported me back to the 70’s! A decade of GREAT MUSIC..but some Disco I really didn’t commit to memory very well. But “Shoe”…Leo Sayer was all over the place and just a super singer song writer, producer!
    ONE SONG of course always comes to mind
    .”You Make Me Feel Like Dancing”. I’d like a 80’s Anthem!
    The Show Must Go On” “3 Dog Night”
    I have a copy of the “OUTLAWS” album Ghost Rider and they covered “I can’t Stop Loving You”.
    Roger Daltrey did “Giving It All Away.
    I can’t remember more but ,(of course) WHAT A DECADE..80’s TOO)! I MEAN Loggins & Messina, Neil Young, Allman Bros., Clapton & Rod & Billy Joel, Linda Ronstadt!!! ON & ON!!!
    Thanx “Shoe”….wood

  2. You got me to thinking today. We played “You Make Me Feel…” in the last cover band i was in before moving to LA in 1977-78 from the bay area (when there were still orchards and NOT a concrete and digital domaine).
    Ah, the old days…

  3. Leo Sayer
    When I Need You, Dancing the Night Away, You Make Me Feel Like Dancing
    Don’t know the answer to 3rd question, will leave that to all of the super genius’s

    • Hey Jules,
      Sounds like you may be reminiscing back to your “Mini Skirt and Knee boots years on the dance floor?

  4. All I can come up with is Leo Sayer but I have very little, if any, knowledge of his songwriting abilities. See you next week :0)

  5. Leo Sayer is our boy this week.
    The Show Must Go On
    You Make me Feel like Dancin’
