Yes indeed it’s Trivia Tuesday for March 31st! Brought to us each Tuesday Morning by all those “Hep Cats” over at Omnivore Recordings,  The only place for the greatest music in the known world and beyond! However! Before we get to this weeks question we’d like to acknowledge the very cool readers who weighed in on last weeks question, which was: An Anagram! “Rare Sand Rabbits” actually unscrambles to read, Barbara Streisand. Coming in first from halfway around the globe was Larry in Munich! It’s been awhile, Wat to go Mr. Larry! However hot on Larry’s heals was Lovely Julie Ismert Yaaaye Jules! Coming in lastly but not leastly was our favorite Bass Player Curtis Stone Rock on Curtis! …(For the record, Larry, Julie and Curtis are all certified SMS Super Geniuses!)

But Now! It’s time for this weeks new Trivia Quiz: Which Classic Beatles record includes brief musical references to at least three other, world renowned compositions ? What are the titles to these  three compositions? And to attain SMS SUPER GENIUS STATUS, give us the names of the composers of these three referenced songs?  AND to top it all off, What is the title of  the b- side to this great Beatle track?

in Summary, here’s what we need:

1) Give us the title of the Beatles record that includes musical references  to at least three other world renowned compositions ?

2) Give us the titles to these three compositions ?

3) Give us the names of the composers of each of the referenced compositions ?

4) What is the title to this records b-side?

Here’s an SMS hint: All three musical references can be found in the intro and the outro of this great Beatle recording! Lastly,neither of the three references we’re looking for are other Beatle songs!

Remember, you can answer the weekly Trivia question as often as you like but can only win a Groovy Omnivore CD every 30 days!


  1. The first part of the question is very easy: ”All You Need is Love”. The second part is relatively easy: the French national anthem, ”In The Mood” and ”Greensleeves”. The third part is impossible and, assuming NOBODY knows the answer off the top of their head, I did the research. “La Marseillaise” was written by Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle; ”In The Mood” was made famous by Glen Miller, of course, but it was based on riffs by various bands. In the end, Joe Garland was given the writer’s credit. ”Greensleeves”, is a traditional English folk song, probably from the Elizabethan era. I remember reading somewhere than it was written by Henry VII but music scholars say that’s unlikely so nobody really knows who wrote it. Finally, the B-side of ”All You Need Is Love” was ”Baby You’re a Rich Man”.
