The SMS Trivia Question of the Week 12/29

With a resounding “Good Riddance” we say goodbye to 2020 and hello to the final Trivia Tuesday for December 29th 2020! Brought to us today and every Tuesday morning by the great folks over at Omnivore Recordings, your spot for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! However, before we get to this weeks question, we’d like to acknowledge the brilliant readers who answered last weeks question, which was: We asked you which U.S. Vice President wrote the Pop classic “It’s all in the game”? Coming in first with the Politically Correct answer was our old friend Mr. Jeffery Conroy! Truly a SMS Super Genius!  Way to go Mr. C. Two weeks in a row! ! Following closely was the always brilliant Mr. Curtis Stone!..Nice job yet again  Curtis baby!

But now! It’s time for the new Trivia Quiz: This weeks question is all about The legendary and original “Rock Musical” “HAIR.” In 1968 “HAIR” took Broadway and London’s West End by storm, forever changing the world of Musical Theater! But, beyond the gratuitous nudity and blatant celebration of drug use, “HAIR” was a musical rich with great, diverse and original songs, many of which would go on to become mega hits by some of the era’s biggest stars! And therein lies this weeks question… We want the titles to at least 4 songs from this great musical that went on to become Top 40 hits, and of course the names of the artists that recorded them? Additionally, since we both know this question is way too easy for a 60’s trivia maven like you, we’d also like the names of the talented folks who wrote the book, the lyrics and the music? ( Now, that’s more like it, ain’t it?)

In summary, here’s what we need:

1) Give us the titles to at least four songs from HAIR The Musical, that went on to become Top 40 hits ?

2) Give us the names of the popular 60’s Artists that recorded each song ?

3) Give us the names of the three  talented men who wrote The Book, The Lyrics and The Music ?

Meanwhile, light up some incense, splash on a little Patchouli Oil  and let your mind drift back to “The Age of Aquarius.” But, before you get “Spaced Out” click on the link below and browse Omnivore Recording’s catalog of the grooviest music in the known world and beyond!

    • Hey Clark!
      I added the last piece of the question to deliberately make it a bit more difficult, but evidenced by the lack of correct answers I think it is now too difficult!
