‘Tis the season for Trivia Tuesday,  December 8th. Brought to us each week by the festive folks at Omnivore Recordings! Your one true option for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know, AND MORE!…But, before we get to this weeks question, we’d like to acknowledge the brilliant readers who chimed in on last weeks question, which was: The truth is, last week we re-ran a question from earlier this year about an Anagram! “Heckling Perturbed Men” unscrambles to become Engelbert Humperdink! We indeed heard from many of our regular readers with some interesting “Side Bars”However! Once again we must give our old friend and SMS Super Genius Larry  in Munich! a tip of the ole SMS Hat for a most curious, alternative and remarkably researched, funny and fascinating answer! Great Job Larry, and only one other reader, a new comer who goes by Keno  showed up with the right answer! Way to go Keno and a warm welcome to the SMS trivia quiz! A very cool Omnivore CD is on it’s way to both of you!

But now! It’s time for the new SMS Trivia Question of the week: This week your question is a lyrical one! Here are two lines of lyric a) “Someone found a lighted house late one night, and he saw through the window a sight“…. And here’s lyric b) “Well way up north where the air gets cold, there’s a tale about Christmas that you’ve all been told”  There you have your two lines of lyric, we need to know the titles of the two songs they appear in, as well as the name of the artist’s who wrote and recorded these two seasonal classics?

And.. to attain SMS Super Genius status, give us one more “Seasonal Title” WRITTEN and released by this awesome artist?

In summary, here’s what we need:

1) What classic 60’s song includes the lyric:  “Someone found a lighted house late one night, and he saw through the window a sight” ?

I2) What other classic 60’s song includes the lyric: “Well way up north where the air gets cold, there’s a tale about Christmas that you’ve all been told” ?
