We still need to correctly answer #14, #20 and Extra-Credit "A", "B", "E" and "F" The correct answers have been reflected in the last update.

Saw Eddie Rabbit at the Marion Popcorn Festival 25 - 30 years ago. Wife won front row seats. Sher was in love (with him) so she was very pleased.

Didn't he also write "Kentucky Rain" for Elvis? Song featured Ronnie Milsap, also. Saw Ronnie at the Renissance Theater in Mansfield. Real good.

Yes, Eddie Rabbit did write "Kentucky Rain". Very good.

He must have liked the rain since his biggest hit was " I Love A Rainy Night".
Don't know if he wrote it or not.

Well, we are moving right along. We have a few more correct answers:

coldshoulder
Extra-Credit "B" - Johnny Newmann, Ole Miss

"JB"
20. Drivin' My Life Away - Eddie Rabbitt

The above correct answers have been added to the latest update. We only need #14, EC "A", "E" and "F" to finish the quiz. Later tonight, I'll post hints (if the questions go unanswered).

Love the "rainy day" comments about Eddie Rabbitt and I looked up what singer Sheryl Crow sang back-up for and it was Michael Jackson.

Of course, we can't forget "Smokey Mountain Rain" by Milsap.

Sounds like another trivia quiz. " Stormy Weather" or "I was born in a cross-fire hurricane."

BlackHawk, that's great, I love it. Elmer Fudd lives !

That reminds me of the song " Summertime" which was a question on Bevo's trivia quiz earlier this week.

The song "Summertime" has the words " Summertime, and the livin' is easy" but we used to sing it as " Suppertime, and the liver is greasy". Now remember this was before the days of Weird Al Yankovic and his song parodies.

I also remember a comic who used to have a skit where he would sing the Pointer Sisters song'"Fire" with the lyric " Ridin' in my car, I turn on the radio, hold you closer and it's fire" or something like that, only he sang it as " Widin' in my car, I turn on the wadio, hold you cwoser and it's fiwer " Was that you' lol ?

Both were written "On a Rainy Night In Georgia" while listening to "Rhythm Of the Rain" by The Cascades.

That was the late, great Robin Williams (as Elmer Fudd) singing Springsteen/Pointer Sisters. It's still hilarious and on YouTube.

You guys are too much. We still need to correctly answer #14 and Extra-Credit "A", "E" and "F". Below are some hints so that we can finish up this most recent trivia quiz:

14. Lloyd Neal - HINT: Played on the same college team with Leonard "Truck" Robinson.

Extra-Credit:
A. - What school led the nation in HOME attendance in 1970-71?
HINT: It wasn't Kentucky, Syracuse, Louisville or North Carolina

E. She was known as "Miss Peaches", but what was Etta James' real first name?
HINT: Her given first name has the same number of letters as her stage name.

F. What was the name of Huey "Piano" Smith's group?
HINT: Truthfully, I had never heard of this group, but they aren't a joke.

OWK,

E. If you hold up her name to a mirror it may help, lol

F. Was Emmett Kelly a member of the group ?

I couldn't stand the suspense any longer so I did some "research" on E and F,
but I do know #14 after you added your hint, but like Wilson Pickett I am going to wait for the Midnight Hour before answering #14.

I will defer to others on E and F since I used an outside source, but for the record, it was not Google or even computer related. I have no idea on A whatsoever.

"JB" - You are too much and you definitely have the correct answers. I'll wait until midnight to get your addition(s). Good job in naming UCLA, afwpatfire. 1970-71 was during the fantastic run the UCLA made from 1964-75:

A. What school led the nation in HOME attendance in 1970-71?
UCLA 391,852
Kansas 365,379
Western Kentucky, 356,738
South Carolina 351,112

OWK,

14. Lloyd Neal- Tennessee State

Since I had assistance in the answers for E and F, I'll wait until morning to give others an opportunity to answer. Have we even been given the green light to use Google or other sources yet ?

Glad that afwpatfire was able to get A with UCLA. Was really surprised to see Western Kentucky finish 3rd in the country and Kentucky not even the top 5. Who would have thought Louisville and Kentucky both would have finished lower in their home state than Western Kentucky ? Good sucker bet,

JB

Thursday night was certainly a trip down music memory lane for me as our local PBS channel, WBGSU located in Bowling Green and serving NW Ohio served up a double header of golden oldies that Mrs JB and I found terrific.

At 8:00 pm there was a showing of "Summer Surf and Beach Music We All Love". This was 90 minutes of vintage footage highlighting the California beach and surf scene of the 60's along with a selection of summer music of all types. I swear it was like whomever put this offering together just read Bevo's Summer Song trivia quiz from earlier this week !

It was as though every summer song questioned in Bevo's quiz was featured on this program. The show featured clips of the Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, The Surfaris, Ventures, Mungo Jerry ,Lovin' Spoonful, Mamas & Papas, Eddie Cochran, Chad & Jeremy, the Drifters, Dick Dale, Brian Hyland, countless Beach Party clips and much more I can't remember. It was hosted by Mike Love of The Beach Boys. They even mentioned the "Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer" tune. I hope Bevo had a chance to watch. It was uncanny. I pride myself in watching old b&w footage of American Bandstand and the like for the past 5 decades and there was lots of clips I had never seen before.

Now the format of nearly every music program like this on PBS is centered around a telethon asking for financial support of the station in return for copies of cd's dvd's of the program. I get it, but the 90 minutes is really only about 60 minutes of music and the other 30 minutes is the pledge drive, but that is really only way to support the broadcast. Still the program is worth watching if you are a rock n roll fan of the 50's, 60's, 70's.

If the Summer Beach special wasn't enough it was followed at 9:30 by a second vintage program called " Cornerstones of Rock" or something close to that. It focused on garage bands primarily of the 60's. This is one of my favorite genres of rock music. . .the local garage bands of the 50's and 60's who made it big, if only for one big hit. This is truly the American Dream when it comes to rock n roll.

The show was set in Chicago and was just made about a year ago. The co-host was Jim Peterik, lead singer and guitarist, sax and keyboard player for The Ides Of March a Chicago based group who had the mega hit "Vehicle" which reached #2 back in 1970. Sort of a poor man's version of Blood Sweat and Tears, even though the Ides of March was formed before BS&T in the same city.

Jim Peterik is one wild looking guy, purple hair, purple Byrd glasses, Leopard skin jacket, skinny jeans, ascot, leopard skin boots and resembles a cross between Phil Spector and Monti Rock III a disco legend. He actually joined the group Survivor in the early 80's, remember them for "Eye Of The Tiger" you Rocky fans ? He's returned to the Ides and and has been rockin' continuously for 52 years !!

The show had current performances from The Standells, Shadows of Knight, The McCoys, The New Colony Six, The Cryan Shames, The American Breed, The Ides of March, and featured the original Buckinghams. Some groups had aged better than others, but all sounded pretty good with the exception of The Shadows of Knight who didn't even play their signature song "Gloria" for some unknown reason. I still have their original album which I would think not too many would even admit some 50 years later.

Same format as first show, lots of breaks for telethon pledges etc. but still worth watching. Not as many vintage clips as the first program but much more current performances and interesting.

Prior to watching these two programs I had planned to put together a trivia quiz involving One Hit Wonders and this trip down memory lane has given me added incentive to get this completed asap. Hope to get phase 1 out on Friday and see how it goes. Stay tuned.

JB

Great post JB.

I was going down memory lane myself last night, listening to songs on Youtube from the 1960's thru the 1980's I hadn't heard in a while. And then Youtube put a "suggestion" on the right-side column - the British punk band The Stranglers playing the Burt Bacharach tune "Walk On By" in 1978.

Normally I would have "walked on by", but I was in the mood for an un-melodic train wreck and clicked on it. Surprisingly, the vocals, instrumentation, and arrangement were quite good, although with a more aggressive bass line - and the obligatory sneer. But definitely an un-punk-like pop sound.

If you're in the mood for something a little different, here's the link:

The absolute best part of the AARP Thread is included in the above posts. Thanks to the "Rock and Roll Guru", "JB"... Great stuff about one of my favorite topics...surf music. The Beach Boys, for one, captured "California dreaming" better than anyone else by including the surf, the upbeat music, hot cars and hot girls in their music. I'll have to look for the PBS special since we didn't get it in Florida. Mrs. OWK (One Who Know MORE) and I attended the Miami Marlins game last night to root against the KC Royals, but we were unsuccessful in achieving this goal.

Zunardo - Thanks for the rendition of "Walk On By". Believe-it-or-Not I had never heard it, but enjoyed it. Of course, I still like Dionne Warwick's version better, but it was still enjoyable. I guess it sort of like ice cream - you can like it as a milkshake or as a sundae.

If nobody correctly answers the trivia question by noon, I'll post the correct answers.

ROCK ON

Thanks Zunardo, always great to hear from you as one of The AARP Boys regulars from the old site.

I checked out The Stranglers rendition of "Walk On By" and while I was familiar with The Stranglers I had never seen/heard the video. Really liked it. During the late 70's and early 80's I really got into what was called New Wave music at that time and got out of,though not completely, mainstream rock. My vinyl collection and cassette collection ( remember cassettes) really reflect this period. Almost all of my cassettes were of the homemade variety as I never bought pre-recorded cassette music. Still recall arguments with friends over which was better, Maxell or TDK, but we always agreed Memorex was the worst. I have cassettes that still sound terrific after 39 years !

Sometime I'll devote a post entirely to the New Wave MTV years of home recording on my Pioneer 9191 cassette recorder which literally wore out from usage taping FM radio songs and borrowed albums for nearly 20 years.

After watching The Stranglers video I would off the top of my head recommend listening to these artists.

The Jim Carroll Band
Moon Martin
Sniff N The Tears
Mink De Ville
Bram Tchaikovsky ( don't let the name scare you)

I would now consider these as music for geriatric swingers lol. I'll get more specific with these artists by listing particular albums and fave tracks in a future post. Currently Mrs JB is insisting that I get outside and mow the lawn.. . . to be continued later today, I hope.

Since OWK's quiz will likely be wrapped up after noon, I'll throw out the first phase of some One Hit Wonders trivia quiz afterwards.

Man! I missed both of those but I believe I had seen the Chicago one a while back. The grainy black and white footage is great. That's why all of the early "Bandstand" and "Where the Action Is" are so mar-ve-lous.

This will probably go on forever with me but the summer trivia quiz should have had "California Dreamin'" and something by Dick Dale. I heard another less but still definitely summer song yesterday with "Walking on Sunshine" by "Katrinia and the Waves".

Check out "I Love you So Much" by "New Colony Six".

Looking forward to the "one-hit wonders" - my favorite category.

("The Cryin' Shames" Sounds familiar.)

Off the top of my head, I remember hearing "Rolene", "Driver's Seat", and "Girl Of My Dreams". on the radio in Columbus in the late 1970's, all of them pretty catchy. And yes, I loved the name Bram Tchaikovsky. There's a guy with a sense of humor.

Don't really know any Carroll or Deville songs, but I remember several articles on Willie DeVille in the music mags around 1976-1977. I'll have to give them a listen now.

As previously mentioned I am posting a trivia quiz featuring those acts known as "One Hit Wonders". To make sure everyone is on the same page as to the definition of what is a "One Hit Wonder", simply stated it's a recording act that only placed one 45 RPM single on the Bill Board Magazine Top 40 List.

For the purposes of this quiz I am only going to deal with singles that charted in the 60"s, 70's, and 80"s, in other words every question pertains to a top 40 single from January 1, 1960 to December 31, 1989. Since there are literally hundreds of records that would fall into this wide category to make it somewhat easier initially I am only looking for songs that reached the top 5 in the top 40. This means all of the questions reached either number 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 on the charts indicating there's a very good chance everyone has probably heard the song before. Not to worry though, for those real music trivia buffs, and you know who you are, I have plenty of questions about those tunes that may have peaked at 39 or 40. They may come later on if there is a demand or if this first quiz is too easy.

So here are the first set of questions on Quiz # 1. These 18 songs were all from the early 60's and all reached at least #5 or higher on the Top 40 Chart.
I just need the name of the artist or group.

We will be using The 10 Point Must System, the Queensbury Rules will be in effect, and absolutely no wagering will be permitted. Just kidding, I always wanted to say that. Actually, the real rules are No Googling the first 24 hours and 3 guesses per individual now until midnight. Good Luck.

JB

2. Stay ( the Original version)- Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs - Bevo

11. Hollywood Argyles ( Was Seals or Crofts in this?)

7. Dave Clark and his great band, The Dave Clark Five. (On of my all-time top five rave ups - "Anyway you Want It") If the Beatles produced the Mersey Sound the DC5 came in with the Tottenham Sound. (I think)

2. Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs. (Jackson Brown ends a lot of his shows with this. Google and you tube it.) Also, check out Tom Hanks' induction speech for the band into the Rock Hall. Tom talks about growing up in Cleveland and listening to and loving the band. Really , really good.

This is a great list! " Mr. Custer" - I use to listen to this at the Hill brothers' house. One of them use to act it out. Wild!! ("Forward - Ho!")
