But! Before we get into this weeks all new question, we’d like to recognize all the brilliant readers who chimed in on last week’s question! Which was, an anagram “Aye Loser” actually unscrambles to become Leo Sayer! Coming in first with all the right answers was our old friend “Speedy” Mr. Jeff Conroy! Congrats yet again Mr. “C”  And then! Exactly one minute later a senior Sixties Music Secrets member dropped in, yes, the one and only Mr. Fast Freddie Vogel! Another week, another win, my friend…We’ll Done!

But now! It’s time for this week’s new Trivia Question: This week’s question is a lyrical quiz with a curious twist, which we’ll need you to explain! So! Without any further delay here are your lyrics’

“Someone found a lighted house late one night

And he saw through the window a sight

She’s candy apple red with a ski for a wheel

And when Santa hits the gas man just watch her peel”

There’s your lyric, tell us what song or songs respectively  include these lyric’s ? Give us the name of the classic 60’s artist who recorded these lyric’s? Lastly give us a brief explanation as to what these four lines of lyric’s have in common or don’t!

  1. These lyriics are from 2 different songs. both by the Beach Boys and written by Brian Wilson and mike Love. “The man with all the toys” and “Little Saint Nick”. What they have in common is that theyr are both about Christmas and Santa. What they dont have in common is they are from 2 DIFFERENT songs. I don’t know. St Nick mentions a cool car, toys does not. Amazing that this is the same artist that did the album Pet Sounds and the song Surfs Up.

    • Hey Curtis,
      Wow! So far you are the only reader to figure out how I twisted up this weeks question! Great job! By the way “ The car” Brian refers to in Saint Nick is not a car,…..It’s a sled! “She’s Candy Apple Red WITH A SKI FOR A WHEEL”
      Well done ol’ Buddy

  2. Lil St. Nick, The Beach Boys, Not sure what last question means . . . what do lyrics have in common??? Beach Boys singing about Santa doing his thing in a cool car. I actually still like this song. So fun.

    • Hey Denise,
      You got half the question correct, but their is a bit more!
      More importantly, like you I still love this record! It’s the one I’m always longing to hear on that radio station that only plays Xmas songs this time of year

  3. Hey Fred,
    That all you got? Take another look at the questions and take another pass at the answers! I know you got this one!
