Are you feeling a little confused this morning, a little chaotic, perhaps suspicious, seeking advice and direction? Maybe we can distract you a bit! As it’s also Trivia Tuesday for November 3rd. Brought to us by all the Groovey people at Omnivore Recordings! Your absolute destination for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! But meanwhile before we get into this weeks question, we’d like to recognize the brilliant readers who weighed in on last weeks question, which was: We focused on The Monkees and offered up a collection of questions about each individual Monkee! First in was SMS Super Genius Mr. Ed Simmons! Way to go Ed, you certainly know your “Monkee Business” Next up was what we might call a charter member SMS Super Genius Mr. Fred Vogel! Way to rock it Fred! Lastly we want to congratulate a newly ordained SMS Super Genius Mr. Clark Besch! Yaaaye Clark!
But now! It’s time for the new SMS trivia question of the week: This week your question is a lyrical one! Here’s your brief lyric, according to the song:
“You can wheel and deal the best of them and steal it from the rest of them, you know the score, their ethics are a bore.”
There you have it, all you need to do is tell us the title of the 1968 hit that features the lyric and the name of the singer / songwriter who recorded this clever and unique gem? And, as usual to achieve SMS Super Genius status, give us the title to another song from this talented artist that pays a comical homage to the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs?
In summary, here’s what we need
1) The title of the unique song that includes this unusual lyric from 1968 ?
2) The name of the singer/songwriter who recorded this gem?
3) For SMS Super Genius status: Give us the title to another song from this talented artist that pokes fun at one of Edgar Rice Burroughs famous works?
