Look at the list below. There is one thing each of these have in common. Join the first two together and then add one as you go until, bingo, you will have it. Let’s see who “gets it” with the lowest number of hints. Good luck.
1. The Armed Forces
2. Little Caesars Pizza
4. New Orleans
6. Buffalo Wild Wings
7. Russell Athletic gear
8. Las Vegas
9. New Mexico
10. Famous Idaho Potatoes
If there are no correct answers, I have some more things to add to the list. Good luck!!
I came across a little quiz that caught my attention. It is only 10 questions and the scoring is different than you might mormally find. Rather than having me explain it, just cut and paste this web site to your browser and take a run at it. As a reference, I scored 175 and felt lucky to get any points.
On February 1, 1964 the Beatles took the Billboard Hot 100 by storm with the first of their numerous #1 songs, “I Want To Hold Your Hand”. It was replaced after 7 weeks by “She Loves You” for 2 weeks at the top. “Can’t Find Me Love” replaced She Loves You for 5 more weeks. It would have been 4 straight Beatles songs at #1 but “Do You Want To Know A Secret” peaked at #2.
Which song took over from the Beatles?
You have heard the Eagles sing, “Standing on the corner in Winslow, Arizona” from Take It Easy. Right? Of course you have. Everyone has at least once.
Well, I am not standing on that corner in Winslow, Arizona but I drove past it today on the way to Holbrook, Arizona. I am not standing on the corner here either but have found a nice hotel room for the night before the snow starts tomorrow.
I tell you this as the build up to the excuse for not giving you the number one songs for this week in 1956 – 1969. I left home without my reference book so I am screwed and unable to do my normal Friday night update. It will have to come next Monday or Tuesday.
Shoot. I am bummed. However, while driving the 8 hours and realizing I left the reference book home, I came up with a new quiz. Margaret loves the quizzes and this one is very interesting, well the answer will be.
The object of the quiz is to name the artist and the name of the song. Your clues are:
I am a big star.
I am not known for my music.
I did my singing in the early 60′s.
My best effort was a cover of a song made popular by someone else.
That song has something to do with a movie.
My one-two punch version of this song was not what people expected of me.
Who am I and what is the name of this song?
Good luck everyone…..
Which song was recorded by two different artist and both made it to the top 10, but never #1. One peaked at #2 and the other at #3. There were 4,387 days between the dates each song made it to the Hot 100. One was kept at #2 by song that spent 9 weeks at #1. The other version was kept from #1 by an equine and someone giving flack, not taking it.
What Phoenicopterus group sang about orbits and what was the name of the song.
There is a seven letter word in the English language that contains ten different words without rearranging any of its letters. What is the word?
In a post yesterday I mentioned that the song, You Don’t Own Me by Lesley Gore, peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1964.
Which song kept it from reaching #1?
Quiz #7 was too easy. This one might be as well.
I am a singer and I think I have more charted songs than any other singer in which the title includes the name of a girl. I counted 8 of them. There were also a couple of songs with names sometimes used as endearments for girls by guys. Geeze, I think I am telling you too much but go ahead and take a guess.
Congrats to Margaret, who correctly answered the last quiz. Vern helped by asking more more clues and I guess that last clue helped. Good job.
Today I have selected a singer who had 3 tops 10′s and 8 top 40 hits between 1959 and 1965. The first 4 songs to chart by this artist had the name of a city in the title. Heck, that should be enough to get the answer right there. Enough said. Who is this singer?
