Isn't 10, The Drifters?
Bevo,

Yes, #10 is correct

"There Goes My Baby" was a hit by The Drifters.

The Paul Anka song I was thinking about was called The Times of Your Life.

We have probably run through this unique topic at some point during the last few years, but the song was actually a jingle/commercial tune for Kodak in '75. Anka recorded it and the tune went to number seven in '76.

I just watched one of the commercials and I believe I need a double injection of Victoza to neutralize the effect from viewing. Painfully sweet; beware, if you dare!

late 50's.

We will now move into the Sixties with the next chapter of Number 2 Top 40, highlighting those tunes that stalled at number 2 and just missed reaching number 1 status. For 1960 there were only 10 songs the entire year that spent time on the charts in the #2 ranking.

Same rules apply. . . No googling until after noon on Monday. Two guesses maximum until noon Monday and after noon tomorrow all restrictions are off meaning unlimited guesses and any resource is OK. Simply need the artist or group that recorded the song.

1960 Number Two on the Charts Quiz


1. "Handy Man"
2. "He'll Have To Go"
3. "Wild One"
4. "Puppy Love"
5. "Greenfields"
6. "Only The Lonely,( Know How I Feel)
7. "Walk-Don't Run"
8. "Chain Gang"
9."Poetry In Motion"
10 "Last Date"

Hmm - I think I only know two of them.

2. "He'll Have To Go" - (Gentleman) Jim Reeves
6. "Only The Lonely" - Roy Orbison

EDIT: boy, I must have been tired last night. Am sitting here this morning, looking at my post and wondering why I originally typed "Reese". Must have had Della on my mind or something.

1. Handy Man - Jimmy JOnes
7. Walk Don't Run - The Ventures
4. Puppy Love - Paul Anka

Zunardo and Bevo,

Two of the "regulars" come out swingin' 1960 and just like that, take out half the quiz
in one plate appearance !

Zunardo first tries to bunt his way on base by slipping a Jim "Reese" by me, but quickly recovers in time to substitute Jim Reeves and gets the hit. . .what a Gentleman. No error though with Roy Orison a solid hit with "Only The Lonely".

Bevo, on the other hand, misses a sign and gets an extra " at bat" by going with 3 guesses instead of the allotted two appearances for this quiz. His legendary status as an AARPSTER allow him a pass in this case and the good thing is he connected on all 3 of his plate appearances this morning. Apparently so eager to end his slump he just couldn't hold back and gets the hit away sign . Hold on until at least noon before another swing and then go for the fences, lol.

Jimmy Jones, The Ventures, and Paul Anka are all correct

Five Down and Five To go.

No need to remove a guess, you have earned a lifetime exemption. Swing away, I just hope to get this quiz behind us and keep moving through the years. May have to pull another "Ernie Banks" and play two to keep this thread alive. Of course that could require explaining who Ernie Banks is.

Yep, give us golden ones another shot or two later on today and then do whatever you want.

I was thinking about when your were at OSU. Did you catch Bradds' senior season or were you gifted with Big Jim Shaeffer. Loved how Gary played and his 40 point streak.

Would this be an example of a mixed blessing: my oncologist wished me a Merry Christmas this morning?

Bevo,

The Golden Boys have now cleaned up 1960 and we can flip back to the late 80's again which I'm guessing will challenge the senior members more so than those junior members and once we work our way into the 70's I think we will have an equal playing field. Stay tuned and see how this thing progresses.

Yes, I recall Gary Bradds' junior and senior years and also remember the play of Gahanna- Lincolns' Jim Shaffer during this time. As I recall, Jim Shaffer started as a junior when Bradds was a senior and then replaced him the next year after Bradds graduated.

After Lucas had graduated, Bradds replaced him and Jim Doughty from Columbus North ( not Northland) and Doug McDonald from Fostoria were the front line. When Bradds was a senior and Shaffer a junior, I believe Don DeVoe was the other starter inside. That was the team that had the Belle Center Bomber, Dick Ricketts and Tom Bowman from Columbus Linden-McKinley in the backcourt.

in Jim Shaffer's senior year the Buckeyes were pretty average at best. They still had Dick Ricketts and newcomer Al ,the Rooster, Rowley from Marion Harding as the guards and Ron Sepic entered the scene along with a guy from the little school in Amish country, Andy Ahijevych (sp) Sugarcreek-Garaway at the other forward spot. Not one of my favorite teams. The next season Bill Hosket started as a sophomore but had very little help with starters like Bob Dove, Al Peters joining Ron Sepic and Al Rowley.

Until you mentioned Jim Shaffer, I don't think I've ever heard his name brought up in conversation about OSU basketball in over 50 years. What's up with that ?

3. "Don't give me no lies and Keep Your Hands to Yourself." The Georgia Satelites.

As I said I was a huge OSU hoops' fan since about '61. I loved the teams - but that period post Bradds, leading up to Hoss, and Sunshine Sorrenson, Steve Howell, et. al., was pretty bleak. The Rooster Rowley was not very good. Harding made a run to state in '62 or '63 and I believe Al was on that team. Actually, Dave Merchant, another Harding guy who played on the team that was attacked by Taylor, Calhoun, Turner et.al., was a pretty decent role player a few years later.

Coming on the heels of Luke and Gary B. was Jim Shaeffer and he suffered mightily by comparison. Today, he'd have a 15-year career in Turkey.

I have ruminated on the many cold nights that I watched the games on Channel Four (and, yes, it was a barnburner) with my pop outside turning the antennae with his plumbers' pliers and me dictating, by screaming, when he should stop.

That and Bill Flemming on the Sat. Big Ten game of the week was must watching for me.

Ricketts, Resbeck, DeVoe, Jumpin' Jim Doighty, Tom Bowman, etc., loved watching them play. In addition to our stars in the middle, our guard play was very solid and, as you said, they were sharp shooters.

LOL. Great song. Earlier I mentioned my wife's family reunion right after we were married, where her cousins played a Tesla song. I didn't mention the karaoke event. Since I was newly married into her family, I was informed by the matriarchs I would have to get up first and sing. Guess which one I chose?

Bevo,

Welcome to 1987 ! You're correct with those good ole' boys, The Georgia Satellites taking "Keep Your Hands To Yourself" to number 2 on the Charts and only those Jersey boys, Bon Jovi with " Livin' On A Prayer" held them out of the top spot. I still remember that video of the satellites riding in the back of a pick-up truck, eating watermelon and references to a shotgun wedding !

Were you even aware that their #2 single earned a Grammy nomination for Best Group Rock Performance that year in addition to U2 and Los Lobos ? You may also recall that those Southern boys had another song featured in the movie "Cocktail" as they did a cover of "Hippy, Hippy, Shake".

I sure remember Jimmy Crum doing the play by play on Columbus Channel 4, but fortunately I was a little closer to the station than you, and didn't have to turn the antenna with pliers, that is just so descriptive as you describe it, I love it !

You mention Jimmy Crum the sports announcer for WLWC, (later changed to WCMH). I think we talked about him before, being that he was a Mansfield guy and was known for calling a close game a "barnburner" and his signature " How About That" right after a great Buckeye play. I also remember him giving Jim Cleamons the nickname the "Cougar" and he referred to two players battling for a rebound as "high altitude wrestling". He was quite the guy in C-town for many years. You would probably enjoy his book, now out of publication I believe, entitled " How About That!" Jimmy Crum, Fifty Years of Cliffhangers and Barn-Burners" by Crum and Carole Gerber. Interesting nostalgia and lots of stories about pro wrestling in Central Ohio which I know is dear to your heart and dozens and dozens of pictures.

2. "C'est La Vie" - Robbie Neville is correct

9. "U Got The Look" is incorrect. Your answer is close, but Roxette had the hit " The Look" which went all the way to number 1 in 1989. Sorry.

Okay, for my third guess:

9. (The Artist Formerly Known as) Prince with somebody - I'll go with Sheila E.

D'oh! I should have read the title more closely. Whenever's there's a "U" instead of "you", seems like it's usually written by Prince.

Now that Diva weighed in, I'm not so sure, but that's my answer, Alex.

Dedicating "1985" by Bowling For Soup to the Diva for her full answer on #11. A song that instantly made me nostalgic the very first time I heard it ten years ago.

Diva,

8. Yep, the late George Michael is correct with " I Want Your Sex" from the
Eddie Murphy movie " Beverly Hills Cop II"

9. I'm giving you half credit for Sheena Easton on "U Got The Look". Sheena
did sing backing vocal on the song, but technically the song is credited to Prince only, as Zunardo answered in the post following your answer. Note in Zunardo's comments that your answer of Sheena Easton got him thinking but he decided to stick with Prince anyway.

11. "Is This Love" Whitesnake is correct and great additional info. on lead singer David Coverdale, formerly of Deep Purple and his wife appearing in the video for "Is This Love". Good stuff.

Hope to hear from again on the remaining answers on this quiz as well as 1986 quiz which will follow this quiz next. Remember after 2:00 pm today everyone gets unlimited guesses and the use of any reference source is OK.

Zunardo,

9. Very nice recovery on " U Got The Look" by Prince. I gave Diva partial credit for her answer of Sheena Easton, since Easton did sing backing vocal on the song. By sticking to your answer, you will receive the "official" credit for the question, however. The comment about songs with "U" in them instead of "You" being linked to Prince was great and definitely valid. Very good observation for future trivia questions.

11 I'm hoping Diva appreciates your gesture to her in recognition of her
expansion on Mr. Coverdale and his actress wife, or ex-wife as I should say now. Hope to hear some more answers from you on this quiz.

JB

Wasn't Tawny Kittan in those Whitesnake videos? If same, she married Indians' pitcher Chuck Finley one year and then he filed assault charges against her as she basically stabbed him while they were in their car with her spiked heels.
The Sheena / Shelia stuff got me thinking about the Shelia E. song The Glamorous Life. Check any video - it kicks!

Also, then, reminds me of Jungle Love by Morris Day - love it.
