Sixties music secrets photoYes! It’s time for the all new Trivia Quiz for Tuesday December 28th. Brought to us each week by our festive friends at Omnivore Recordings! Your perfect destination for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! But, as we like to do right about here each week is recognize the brilliant readers who correctly weighed in on last weeks question, which was: We gave you a list of ten of our 60’s favorites asking you what they all had in common ? With the correct answer being all ten songs were written by Lennon and McCartney! First in as frequently happens was Mr. Clark Besch! Followed by Mr. Tom Slocum! Way to go gents! Plus, most honorable mentions must go out to our old friends and long time readers adding color and detail as only they can! Big SMS Thanx to Mr. Jim Gorman! and Ron Wood!

But now, it’s time for the new trivia question for the week:: According to the singer and the song “Sometimes you really dig a girl the moment you kiss her, but then you get distracted by her older sister.” The song continues, when suddenly the girl’s father appears and takes the singer aside and gives him some advice…”In walks her father and he takes you aside and sez”… Give us the next lyric line quoting what the father sez to the singer ?

Naturally, we want the title of the song that features the lyric we quoted, as well as the name of the songwriter and the act that recorded and released this 60’s classic And lastly give us the the titles of at least three additional hits from this artist

  1. HAPPY 2021!!
    You’re singing The Lovin’ Spoonful! What a great time we have with John Sebastion.
    The lyrics are from “Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind” written by John S.
    And “dad” warns: “BETTER GO HOME SO, AND MAKE UP YOUR MIND”!!!
    Some other tunes I really like are: “You Didn’t Have To Be So Nice”, “Do You Believe In Magic”, (which reminds me that there are several songs in general out in Music Land with *MAGIC* in the titles that are VERY GOOD!) another Spoonful song is “Nashville Cats” & “(Hot Time) Summer In The City”. AND a tune which was one of the 1st I learned to play on my guitar is “What a Day For a Daydream”
    John Sebastion is a super creater of good times!
    PEACE IN 2022!!!…..wood

  2. I sorta dismissed the Lovin’ Spoonful in the 60s, even though I loved songs like Rain on the Roof, lovin’ You, Summer and Nashville Cats. I used to ditch gym with a friend and go sing them behind a huge rock behind the school. The memories sure kick the songs a notch or 10. Under appreciated group imo.

  3. Did you ever have to make up our mind? Writer John Sebastian act: Loving Spoonful”.3 other hits “Summer in the City” , What a day for day dream”, Nashville Cats”.

  4. Song: Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind
    Act: Lovin’ Spoonful
    Writer: John Sebastian
    Line: “Better ho home, son and make up your mind.”
    Other Songs, Summer in the City, Rain on the Roof, Do You Believe in Magib
