The SMS Trivia Question of the Week 12/7

Sixties music secrets photo“Oh by gosh by golly”, it’s time for Mistletoe and the all new trivia question for Tuesday December 7th! Brought to us each week by the “Jingle Jangle” folks at Omnivore Recordings!  Your only real choice for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! But! Before we reveal this week’s question, we’d like to acknowledge the brilliant readers who “Chimed” in on last weeks quiz, which was all about the great Donovan Leitch and his classic “Sunny Goodge Street” Quite surprisingly Only one reader weighed in and answered the question and even he didn’t correctly answer the entire question! Especially surprising because that single reader was Charter Member “ Super Genius Mr. Steve Winogradsky! BTW.. The piece you were missing is in Simon and Garfield’s “Fakin It” There is a break in the song where you hear a woman’s voice saying “Good morning Mr. Leitch, have you had a busy day”? I’m sure it’s all coming back to you now? From the album “Bookends”

But now! It’s time for this weeks new Trivia Quiz: Because we were so tuff on you last week, we’re going very easy on you this Tuesday and here’s your question: Give us the titles to two 60’s classic’s that include the words “Zebra Skin” in the lyric ? Also give us the names of the two artists that recorded and released these two unusual songs ? Lastly give us the titles to at least two more hits from the two artists? There you go…Easy / Peezy!

  1. It’s from Roustabout.
    I’m pretty sure it was not a hit, but it’s Elvis corny movie material.

  2. Elvis – Llittle Egypt
    Ray Stevens- Ahab the Arab. (can we say that in this era?)
    Ray had “Everything is Beautiful” and “Gitarzan”
    Elvis had, well, where do we begin…”Hound Dog’, “Love Me Tender”, “Jailhouse Rock” the list goes on and on…

    • Hey Jeff!
      I gotta tell you, I’ve never heard the Elvis version. In fact I never even knew he cut the song! The Drifters had the hit and that’s the only version I know!
      Thanx for always bringing something fresh to SMS!
