However, before we unveil this weeks all new Trivia Quiz, we’d like to recognize all the brilliant readers who weighed in on last week’s question, which was: All about the lyrics to The Beach Boys two classic Xmas songs, “Little St. Nick” and “The Man With All The Toys.” Coming in first, as he frequently does was our own “Fast Freddie Vogel”! However he came in a little short on fully answering last weeks Quiz! Nice try Mr. V. But there is a new quiz just below! Following Fret was Ms. Denise Shoemaker! But, she too could only deliver a partially correct answer! But of course big SMS Thanx for “Giving it Hell” Following Denise came our old friend from “Highway 101” and the best bass player I know Mr. Curtis Stone! Big SMS Congrats Curtis, you are the only reader to fully and correctly answer this weeks question!

But now! It’s time for this week’s new Trivia Question: This week’s question is yet again a lyrical question with a twist or two! Here’s your lyric…

“Smashing into neon streets in their stillness
Smearing their eyes on the crazy-colored goddess
Listenin’ to sounds of Mingus Mellow Fantastic”

“My my they sigh”

“My my they sigh”

There’s your lyric and yes it is a wee bit Psychedelic! As usual, we need you to tell us what classic 60’s song includes the  above lyric ? Who wrote and recorded this classic, plus give us at least 3 additional song titles from this uniquely talented singer / songwriter!  Additionally, here’s a Sixties Music Secrets heads up! Spelling counts! Specifically  in the song’s  title, it is far too frequently misunderstood, mis quoted and mis wrote…You’re Welcome!
