Yes, it’s Trivia Tuesday for April 2nd. Made possible by our Fab Friends at Omnivore Recordings, Your only destination for the tastiest music on The Planet Earth! This is also where we like to give a Cyber Shout out to the very brainy readers who correctly answered last week’s question which was an Anagram: “I climb the rock era” actually unscrambles to read Ritchie Blackmore. Early in with the correct unscramble was Curtis Stone, Who also identified two bands Ritchie played guitar for Deep Purple and Blackmore’s Rainbow. Way to go Curtis! But, you weren’t first ol’ Buddy! Ron Wood also weighed in But, way too late! Read on Ronnie and nail this week’s quiz! However, first in before “The ink was dry was “First time winner b b b Brenda who nailed every detail! “Boo-Ya and congrats b b b Brenda who is this week’s winner of a very Groovey CD from Omnivore Recordings!
But Now! It’s time for this week’s question: First here’s the set up! This week we’re going to ask for your patience as we are going to get just a wee bit verbose! This week our question is about lyrics!
Here is the first verse from one of our favorite songs by a Canadian group from the late Sixties:
“Listen people to a story
That was written long ago,
’bout a kingdom on a mountain
And the valley folks below.
On the mountain was a treasure
Hidden deep beneath a stone,
And the valley people swore
They’d have it for their very own”
As the song proceeds we learn that the “Valley People” fight and win a bloody war with “The Mountain Kingdom” But when the Valley People roll back the large stone that protects the “Hidden Treasure,” They don’t find any real Treasure at all! Sooo, here are your questions: 1)What exactly did the Valley People find beneath the stone? 2) What is the title of this great song? 3) What is the name of the Artist who recorded this great record?
And for real EXTRA CREDIT: A few years later another act covered this song, and it became the featured theme to a very popular feature film: 1) Who covered this great song 2) What is the title to this classic film? And 3) What is the name of the actor who played the lead character in the movie?
Here’s your summary: 1) What was found beneath the stone?
2) What is the title of the song?
3) What is the name of the artist?
4) What is the name of the artist who covered it, later?
5) What is the title to the classic film that featured the cover version?
6) What is the name of the actor who played the lead role in the film?
“Th, Th, Th, That’s all folks”… Six questions about one of our favorite 60’s songs!
