RDL - Sly could boogie with the best of them. Those are great early hip hop and soul songs.

"JB" comes through by identifying #34 as the Bee Gees, "To Love Somebody". The correct answer is mentioned on post #2312. Now all we need is for "JB" to make Bevo's day by posting his high school info. (See post #2311)

We still need to correctly answer the following questions to complete the quiz:

13. Phil Cox (what college?)
22. "Now that you've found your paradise…"
D. This song is heard in the background of a party scene depicting George W. Bush's drinking years. LeAnn Rimes also had some success with a remake of the "swamp pop", blues ballad. Name That Tune

Are any of these Creedence songs it:

Who'll Stop the Rain?
Susie Q
Proud Mary
Lookin' Out My Back Door (about the Democratic convention in '68, right?)
Have you Ever Seen the Rain?
Fortunate Son (seems like this is it but it's not a ballad and I don't believe Lee Ann ... .)
Down on the Corner
Bad Moon Rising

There are others but I have no idea; so, I am out of the competition.

Sorry Bevo, but the answer is not a CCR song. I probably led you astray by mentioning "swamp pop". As for the competition, you are never out of it.

If nobody comes through with the correct answers soon, I'll post some hints later tonight.

Mrs. Monclova guesses "Blue Bayou".

We can't even guess on 13 and 22 -- no idea.

Another great quiz, OWK. Thank you.

Yep. Blue Bayou. You can tell that I was never a good reader since I never know what's up?!

I don't think Blue Bayou is correct. Actually, I'm not sure the missus does either, but it's the first song that popped into her head.

Yes "JB" and I'm sure you know the answer. We won't give you credit until you enter the high school info that Bevo requested (see post #2311). We will, however, give "JB" first shot at answering Extra-Credit "D".

Here are a couple of hints for the remaining two unanswered questions:

13. Phil Cox (what college?)
HINT: CNN's Anderson Cooper's family has a very unique relationship with this university.
22. "Now that you've found your paradise…"
HINT: I'm looking for a song from the late 1960s, but there was another song (from the early 1960s) that had a similar name and was performed by the The Lettermen.
D. This song is heard in the background of a party scene depicting George W. Bush's drinking years. LeAnn Rimes also had some success with a remake of the "swamp pop", blues ballad. Name That Tune
"JB" has already identified this one...it's just not official yet.

Good job, Bevo! Yes, Phil Cox played for Vanderbilt. As many people already know, Anderson Cooper's mother is Gloria Vanderbilt.

OWK,

Are you kidding me, I know you just want someone to come forward with an earlier graduation date than 1965! Incidentally, 1965 was a very good year as Sinatra sang back in the day and it also happened to be the year Mrs. JB graduated from beautiful Newark High School.

I will tell you that I actually graduated first in my senior class and also had the distinction of being the very first person to ever graduate from Heath High School, the very first year the school opened in the fall of 1962 with the first graduating class being the class of 1963.

I have always enjoyed seeing the look on peoples' face when I tell them I graduated first in my senior class. . . .of course I never mention the fact the graduates were given their diplomas alphabetically and not by their GPA.

I did attend Newark HS through my junior year, but Heath High School opened its doors in 1962 and all students who lived in Heath had attended Newark HS before Heath opened their high school and had a choice to either finish out their senior year at Newark or enroll at the brand new Heath HS for their senior year. I left a high school with a graduating class of around 600+ I think, for a graduating class of 26 !

I chose Heath mainly because I only lived about the equivalent of 3 blocks from the new school and it was more of a convenient factor than anything else. There you have it, I believe that makes me the elder statesman of the AARP Boys & Diva unless another older geezer comes forward.

Oh, by the way, I spent a lot of "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights" during my senior year. Getting ready for my glass of warm milk before I turn in as it's nearly 9:00 pm and past my bedtime.

JB

"JB" - Very interesting indeed. For some reason, I thought you graduated from Newark in 1966, so I really wasn't trying to add someone whose graduation year was before mine in 1965. Your line about graduating first in your class is a classic...very good. I guess we can officially add something to both the high school list and the trivia quiz:

Extra-Credit D: "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights", Freddie Fender (JB)

For Bevo, here's what the high school info looks like:

1. Bevo - Upper Sandusky '69 (140)
2. OWK - Akron St. Vincent '65 (183)
3. coldshoulder - Youngstown Liberty '73 (210)
4. Mr. Slippery - Canton Central Catholic '99 (143)
5. Monclova Steve - Cincinnati Western Hills '69 (1000+)
6. 80greyhound - Grove City '80 (640)
7. Zunardo - Hamilton Twp '76 (190)
8. BlackHawk - Kettering Alter '75 (300)
9. EagleGuy - Hubbard '70 (296)
10. rdlwolverine - Toledo Whitmer '73 (900)
11. JB - Heath '63 (26)

We have only one question left to answer correctly:

22. "Now that you've found your paradise…"
HINT: I'm looking for a song from the late 1960s, but there was another song (from the early 1960s) that had a similar name and was performed by The Lettermen.

ROCK ON!

You, our good friend, are anything but a geezer. I actually just got off the couch to do this and screamed in pain!

You are the hippest cat on here - by far. You know almost everything about everything - even more than Mr. Smarty Pants!

Who's the geezer? I have dental implants coming, a colonoscopy, a CT scan this Friday, and another OSU specialist appt. the first week of May and from the sound I made hoisting myself off the couch, I'd say I am on my way to a hip replacement!!!

I'll guess you are somewhere between 55 and 95 and let it go at that.

And, I placed 7th. from the bottom in my high school class. That wasn't due to my rigorous schedule; instead it was because I was a ______ off. (Supply any profane word you want.)

Thanks to the love of a good woman, I snapped out of it somewhat and vaulted into that 133rd. slot out of the aforementioned 140 . I actually spoke to a placement person from Park College in Missouri one day at lunch my senior year and after meeting me he said he would check my transcript and get back to me. Still waiting.

It's all good and it's been pretty good too!

I'm always learning something - the only version I knew was the one I heard by Fender my senior year in high school, so my eyebrows went up at the mention of "swamp pop" - I would have said "Texas pop ballad", but I didn't know the history of the song, and had no idea his '75 version was "covering himself".

Interesting comments from Zunardo! As I previously mentioned, the "swamp pop" definition probably was misleading. "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights" could also be labeled as a blues ballad that combines rockabilly and Tex-Mex music. Regardless, the song (as well as Freddie Fender) have an interesting story.

It's probably time to post the answer to the only question that was unanswered:
22. "Now that you've found your paradise…" UNANSWERED
HINT: I'm looking for a song from the late 1960s, but there was another song (from the early 1960s) that had a similar name and was performed by The Lettermen.

The answer to #22 is "Shangri-La" by The Kinks.

Another completely different song named "Shangri-La" was written in 1946 and was "covered" by The Four Freshmen, The Four Coins and The Lettermen. The Lettermen's rendition was the one I was referring to from the early 1960s.

The FINAL UPDATE is on my next post.

ROCK ON!

Another undertaking well done!

Anyone else wants to toss something out - competitive or not. Remember the beauty of the thread is what we talk about when we are suppose to be talking about something else! I have a few quizzes on ice but I have had them for quite awhile. So, someone else can have at it.

I'll wait a few days... .

OK - here is a question that I came up with for a baseball trivia group that I am a part of -

Name 7 former MLB players that were MVPs of a college football bowl game, including bowl games between 2 schools (eg Rose Bowl, Sugar Bowl etc) and all-star bowl games eg (Hula Bowl, Senior Bowl).

Limit 2 answers per person to start.

Bo Jackson is correct. In fact he qualifies three times - Cotton Bowl, Liberty Bowl and Sugar Bowl.

rdlwolverine - Excellent question! Heck, I can only make one guess. That would be "The Shark" from Notre Dame - Jeff Samardaja (sp).

Scratch this guess...I didn't even follow directions. You said FORMER MLB players, so I have ZERO guesses.

ROCK ON!
