RESULTS & ANSWER KEY for Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz #221 (GOLQ221)

Congratulations to Really Rockin' in Boston, Across the Boarder, the EJ's
and Company, the Village Idiots, and the team of Randy Price and Peter
Morley, who tied for first place in this quiz with perfect scores of 500++.

GOLQ221's mean score was a relatively high 425.60, and the median was
the extremely high 473.  Most teams got at least partial credit for at
least one tie breaker.  This time, I intended for the theme to be easily
guessed - songs that the Beatles or individual members of the group wrote,
co-wrote, or recorded, or songs with some connection to the Fab Four.

Our thanks to everyone who participated.

Mick Tursky has posted GOLQ222.

Rockin' in 2 by 2
#01) Beatles: Roll Over Beethoven (1964) [68] {n/c}

Starting off this Beatles-themed quiz with the Fab Four themselves.  I chose
this song because, with the exception of the songs on the 4-track EP, 4 - BY
THE BEATLES, this was the only 1960s chart entry of theirs to never have been
used in a GOLQ before.  Fortunately, the version by the song's composer, Chuck
Berry, has not been used since GOLQ107, and a version by the Velaires which
peaked at #51 in 1961 has never been used in a GOLQ, so the song was eligible.
"Roll Over Beethoven" was also the first charting single by the Electric Light
Orchestra (ELO), peaking at #42 in 1973.  I once heard a medley of the Berry,
Beatles, and ELO versions played on an AMERICAN BANDSTAND anniversary program
in the 1970s.

The Beatles are one of four acts represented in this quiz that were also
in my earlier effort, GOLQ215.  The others are Ray Charles, Sergio Mendes
& Brasil '66, and the Shirelles.

Don't let him steal your heart away
I'm gonna learn to dance if it takes me all night and day
#02) Berry, Chuck: Carol (1958) [18] {9}

Since the Beatles and Chuck Berry are so close together in the alphabet, my aim
here was to put in a song that would clearly point to the Beatles as the artist
for the lead-off song.  This could be accomplished either by coming up with an
intervening act or by using a song by Berry.  Since the Beatles did a few songs
by him, this was the obvious route to take.  The releases of the LIVE AT THE BBC
and ANTHOLOGY CDs in the 1990s gave me more songs to choose for this quiz, and
I took this one from LIVE AT THE BBC.  A couple of teams gave the title to this
one as "Oh Carol," confusing the title with that of a Neil Sedaka hit of a few
years later.

And love comes love shows
I give my heart and no one knows that I do
#03) Black, Cilla: It's For You (1964) [79] {n/c}

This is listed as a Lennon-McCartney composition, but Team Teitelbaum pointed
out that it was actually written by Paul.  A version by a Canadian group called
Springwell went to #60 in 1971.  Earlier, Three Dog Night did a version that's
on one of their albums.  The Springwell version is a knock-off of the Three Dog
Night version.

There was love all around
But I never heard it singing
#04) Bryant, Anita: Till There Was You (1959) [30] {-}

From the Broadway musical, and later hit film, THE MUSIC MAN.  When our house-
hold got a copy of MEET THE BEATLES in 1964, I was thrilled to hear Paul sing a
song from a movie I had loved so much when I first saw it a year or so earlier
and still love today.  Anita Bryant later gained notoriety for a politically-
inspired action, and she hasn't been seen or heard from much in the 28 years
since then.

Why did she have to go?
I don't know, she wouldn't say
#05) Charles, Ray: Yesterday (1967) [25] {9}

Ray also charted with "Eleanor Rigby," which was not eligible for inclusion in
this quiz because the Beatles' own version had been used too recently.  However,
if "Eleanor Rigby" had been eligible, I would have used Aretha Franklin's
version and kept "Yesterday" for Ray Charles.

Interesting background information on this song is listed in the quiz results
in which the Beatles' version was used, at <>.

Could it be anybody?
Oh, it's gotta be somebody
#06) Cocker, Joe: With A Little Help From My Friends (1968) [68] {-}

TT: During his 1999 lecture tour, George Martin mentioned that the rest of the
group provided encouragement to Ringo as he strained to hit the high note at
the end of the song.

My preference was to use Cocker's version of "She Came in Through the Bathroom
Window" because it has never been used in a GOLQ, while this one had been used
once before.  However, I found this one in my collection on one of the volumes
of Rhino's THE BRITISH INVASION: HISTORY OF BRITISH ROCK series and decided to
go with something I already had.  In mid-June, I found a Joe Cocker CD
containing both of these songs in a local library.  Had I known it was there,
I would have gotten it before I finished this quiz and used the other song.

Then I told you 'bout our kid
Now he's married to Mable
#07) Cream: Badge (1969) [60] {-}

Co-written by George Harrison and Eric Clapton, then a member of Cream.  EMC
and Friends also noted that Harrison performs a the guitar solo on this one.
More information on the Beatle connection to this song can be found at (link courtesy of The Coasters).

Incidentally, if you have never heard "Badge" and are only familiar with Cream
as a result of the heavy fuzztone guitars in songs such as "Sunshine of Your
Love" and "White Room," it's possible that you won't recognize them as the
group doing this song.

You say you're gonna leave
You know it's a lie
#08) Crickets: That'll Be The Day (1957) [1] {2}

One of the things I learned from doing this quiz is that the artist of this song
was listed as The Crickets, not as Buddy Holly.  The Beatles also recorded other
songs recorded by Buddy Holly that didn't chart for him--"Words of Love," which
I first heard on BEATLES VI here in the U.S., and "Crying, Waiting, Hoping,"
which is on LIVE AT THE BBC.

TT: The very first recording by The Quarrymen in 1958.  At the time, the group
was comprised of John, Paul, George, Colin Hanton on drums, and John Lowe on
piano.  Paul kept the demo record, and it was released as part of the Anthology

Well you went off and married
But I love you still
#09) Everly Brothers: Lucille (1960) [21] {-}

Here's my big goof.  I relied on memory and the Beatles' version to come up
with these lyrics, and three teams, Randy Price & Peter Morley, The Genateam,
and NAVAIRHEADS, pointed out that neither the Everlys nor Little Richard sang
the line, "Well you went off and married."  Paul McCartney added this line to
the Beatles' version, which is on LIVE AT THE BBC.  I chose the Everlys' version
in part because Paul is announced as doing this as a tribute to them.  Plus,
with other Little Richard songs in the Beatles' repertoire, this left open the
possibility of also using one of them in this quiz, although I ultimately did
not do this.

GE: The Everlys' version goes, "Well there's nothing to ya, but I love you

But if I have to walk
I'm going just the same
#10) Harrison, Wilbert: Kansas City (1959) [1] {1}

This is a song I remember hearing on the Washington, DC, AMERICAN BANDSTAND-
like show THE MILT GRANT SHOW, which I watched in between cartoon shows during
my early elementary school years.  Based on when it charted, I was in the first
grade.  I never knew the artist until much later, but I enjoyed the catchy
lyrics.  And when I heard the Beatles do what I thought was the same song on
BEATLES VI, I remembered it, or at least I thought I remembered it, from the
times I heard it back in 1959.

However, I learned while doing research for this quiz that the Beatles
based their version on a Little Richard recording that was called "Kansas City
Lovin'," and their version is actually considered to be a medley of that one
and another Little Richard song, "Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey."  In fact, when I first
heard the "Heys" in the Beatles' version, I thought they were just adding
improvisation to the Wilbert Harrison version.  And to further confuse me, one
of my friends had a Herman's Hermits album containing this song listed with the
"Kansas City Lovin'" title.

TT: Little Richard was the first to marry his own "Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey" with
"Kansas City."  The boys did their own rendition of the medley in 1964.

Because of the differences in the Wilbert Harrison and Beatles versions, I
considered including this song as part of a foursome of songs done by Beatles'
namesakes.  However, I was not about to use Anita Bryant and the Lennon Sisters
in the same GOLQ!  Plus, I didn't know if I'd find a McCartney namesake, but as
soon as I put my mind to it, I came up with one so good that I ended up using
it after all! (Still to come.)  Ironically, the discarded Starr namesake song
showed up as an incorrect guess later in the quiz.

This song was written by the famous songwriting duo of Jerry Leiber and
Mike Stoller.

Give me love and remember what I told you
#11) Kramer, Billy J., with the Dakotas: I'll Keep You Satisfied
                                                              (1964) [30] {n/c}

Another lesson learned from doing this quiz--it's "with the Dakotas," not "and
the Dakotas."  Only 9 of the 20 entries identified the group name correctly,
while 7 said "and the Dakotas," which garnered a 2-point deduction.

TT: Another Lennon/McCartney composition, given away to a lesser member of
Brian Epstein's stable.

This group charted with two other songs written by Lenon and McCartney,
"Bad to Me" and "From A Window."

Girl you get it through your head
That boy is mine
#12) Little Eva: Keep Your Hands Off My Baby (1962) [12] {6}

TT: Another of the boys' BBC performances.

Another one from a legendary songwriting team, this time Gerry Goffin and
Carole King (who also wrote another song the Beatles did, "Chains").

I received more than one entry that guessed "My Boyfriend Got a Beatle Haircut"
by Donna Lynn for this position.

Well on his way
His head in a cloud
#13) Mendes, Sergio, & Brasil '66: The Fool On The Hill (1968) [6] {-}

It looks like almost every team learned its spelling lesson from GOLQ215.  Only
one team put a "z" instead of an "s" in Mendes and Brasil.  This act had only
two Top 10 entries in the 1960s, and now I've used both of them in GOLQs I've
put together.

Please (hold me)
Squeeze (hold me)
#14) Miracles: You've Really Got A Hold On Me (1962) [8] {1}

You may recall that one of my regrets in doing GOLQ215 was that the theme I
chose didn't allow me to use an eligible Motown song.  With three such songs
that were on the U.S. release of BEATLES' SECOND ALBUM, I hoped that at least
one of them was available for use in this quiz.  I knew that "Money" had been
used too recently, and it turned out that this was also the case with "Please
Mr. Postman."  Fortunately, this one was available, and I grabbed it, despite
the fact that the Beatles titled their version a bit differently as "You Really
Got A Hold on Me."

I hope you'll take your time and tell me
When we're alone
Love will come home
#15) Peter and Gordon: Woman (1966) [14] {-}

TT: Written by Paul under the pseudonym of Bernard Webb.

Peter Asher's sister dated Paul in the early years of the Beatles' fame.
The duo charted with three songs credited to Lennon/McCartney--"Nobody I Know,"
"I Don't Want To See You Again," and another song that will be discussed
shortly.  Plus, they also charted with a remake of one of the oldies that
the Beatles performed on LIVE AT THE BBC, "To Know Her/Him Is To Love Her/Him."
Peter Asher has been a record producer for some time now, notably for James
Taylor and Linda Ronstadt.

Paul McCartney and John Lennon individually wrote different songs called
"Woman" that both charted in the Billboard Hot 100.  John's was a hit for him
in early 1981, shortly after his death.

I wish I was a baby
I wish I was dead
#16) Plastic Ono Band: Cold Turkey (1969) [30] {-}

A John Lennon project.  It will be awhile before you see the Plastic Ono Band
on a GOLQ again because their other charting hit, "Give Peace a Chance," was
used in GOLQ219.

Everybody kept on playing
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
#17) Rivers, Johnny: Summer Rain (1967) [14] {-}

This is one of two songs in this quiz that was included because of a Beatles
reference.  I was remiss in not doing the special puzzler that was part of
GOLQ220, which included this song, before I put this quiz together.  This did
not render the song to be ineligible for this quiz, but I considered replacing
it with Rivers' recording of "Memphis," a Chuck Berry-penned song that the
Beatles did on LIVE AT THE BBC under the title of "Memphis, Tennessee."
However, it was decided to leave it in after all.

Rivers did a lot of remakes, although this was not one of them.  In two recent
GOLQs, I could hear Rivers' voice as I looked at lyrics that didn't fit alpha-
betically.  They turned out to be other versions of his hits "Midnight Special"
and "Baby I Need Your Lovin'," which at least was helpful in identifying the
songs and actual artists.

So I wait and in a while
I will see my true love smile
#18) Rydell, Bobby: A World Without Love (1964) [80] {n/c}

This is the other Lennon-McCartney song that was a hit for Peter and Gordon.
This version lost the competing covers battle and was practically the last
hurrah for this Philadelphia native's period as a chartmaker.  Incidentally,
many of Rydell's original hits are finally available on the long-awaited CAMEO
PARKWAY BOX SET.  While this song is not included, it is mentioned in the liner
notes, and the box set did contribute another song to this quiz (still to come).

The liner notes mention the arrival of the Beatles as one of the three factors
contributing to the label's demise, and goes on to state, "Even Rydell's last
hit on Cameo, 1964's 'A World Without Love,' was written by John Lennon and
Paul McCartney--a sign of the times for sure."

For the Aintree Iron
#19) Scaffold: Thank U Very Much (1968) [69] {-}

Here's the McCartney namesake.  One of the group's members was a chap named
Mike McGear, originally known as Mike McCartney, Paul's brother.  (Another
McCartney namesake song I could have used was "Linda" by Jan and Dean.  The
song was written by a songwriter acquainted with attorney Lee Eastman, who
wanted him to write a song using his daughter's name.  And this was the same
Linda who grew up to be Linda McCartney.)

All 15 entries that identified this song properly spelled it with "U" rather
than "You," another lesson I learned while doing this quiz.

I've got everything that you want
Like a heart that's oh so true
#20) Shannon, Del: From Me To You (1963) [77] {-}

TT: First Len/Mac composition to chart in the U.S.

Shannon seemed to record a lot of songs that are better known as being done
by big name groups of the 1960s--in addition to this one, he did "She" (The
Monkees), "Under My Thumb" (The Rolling Stones), and "Do You Want To Dance?"
(Beach Boys, a song with a lot of charting versions).

#21) Shirelles: Baby It's You (1961) [8] {3}

I really wanted to use the 1969 version by Smith.  It's more to my liking,
plus it had never been used in a GOLQ before, while the one by the Shirelles
had been used twice already.  However, I couldn't find a qualifying song that
fit between the two acts alphabetically.  I already knew before I put this
quiz together that "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" by the Silkie had been
used too recently.  I found a 1965 charting song called "Anytime at All" under
Frank Sinatra's long list, and some Beatles cover/remakes web sites list this
as being the same song that U.S. Beatles fans first heard the previous year
on SOMETHING NEW BY THE BEATLES.  But further research showed that this is a
different song.  While it's hard to imagine "The Chairman of the Board" singing
this particular Beatle song, he did other songs that took me by surprise.  Even
if it did turn out to be the Beatle song, though, I doubt if I would have found
a copy of the song to listen to in the short time I had to put this quiz

So, what I ended up doing was finding lyrics unique to either the Shirelles
or Smith version, and despite a promise I made to myself not to use nonsense
lyrics in this quiz, I found these to be something the Shirelles sang (and the
Beatles, for that matter), but Smith lead singer Gayle McCormick did not.

Some entries mentioned both the Shirelles and Smith as the artist, although no
one only mentioned Smith.  A couple of entries named the Shirelles correctly
but gave the song title as "Sha-La-La."  Two possible reasons for this misiden-
tification--(1) the Beatles' version on LIVE AT THE BBC is introduced by the
show's host with a title starting with "Sha" and ending with a few "la"s, and
(2) another thing I learned from this quiz is that the Shirelles did a song
called "Sha-La-La" that went to #69 in 1964.  I was familiar with a song with
that title by another British Invasion group, Manfred Mann, from later that
same year, and it turns out to be the same song.

Music by legendary songwriter Burt Bacharach, lyrics by Mack David (brother
of Bacharach's usual songwriting partner Hal) and Barney Williams.  Another
Shirelles song done by the Beatles, "Boys" (with Ringo on lead vocals), was
a non-charting B-side for the girl group.

All the girls adore him
They think he's pretty cool
If he would look my way
I know just what I'd say
Be mine forever -- forever
#22) Swans: The Boy With The Beatle Hair (1964) [85] {n/c}

This is the song that comes from the CAMEO PARKWAY BOX SET.  I had neither
heard it nor heard of it before this box set came into my possession in late
May.  And in fact, it was going to be a Tie-breaker until I read the credits
for this song in the booklet and discovered that it had actually charted.

While the song was a novelty, one of the songwriters was Kenny Gamble, who
later became a highly-regarded record producer.  The album credits also note
that Roy Buchanan plays guitar on this track.

An incorrect guess for this entry that I received was "Rock and Roll Waltz,"
by Kay Starr, which was going to be my Starr entry.  This is a song I had heard
of but had never heard until a few months ago, when it turned up on a 1950s
anthology CD I bought.  (I've still never heard "After School" by Randy Starr.)

Oh baby come on and shake
It's in the bag
#23) Swinging Blue Jeans: Hippy Hippy Shake (1964) [24] {n/c}

TT: Yet another of the boys' BBC performances.  There is also an early
recording of them performing it at the Star Club in Hamburg.

I would like you to dance
#24) Underground Sunshine: Birthday (1969) [26] {-}

Until this version of the song from THE BEATLES (also known as THE WHITE ALBUM)
came out the year after the album was released, I didn't even know the real
lyrics.  The group was from Wisconsin.  This record came out a couple of months
before "Baby It's You" by Smith, and I saw both groups on AMERICAN BANDSTAND
(by then a Saturday-only show from L.A.).

Since this GOLQ was released, Paul, Ringo, and I have all had another one of
this song's title.

I tried to please her
She only wasted my time
#25) Vontastics: Day Tripper (1966) [100] {7}

This version got some airplay in the Washington area.  An article in the Wash-
ington Star's Teen section about the record began something like, "How do you
get a Beatles song played on a soul station?  The answer--get a soul group to
record it."  As you can see, the record did far better on the R&B chart than
on the Hot 100.  In fact, I had just about forgotten it when, in the mid-1980s,
I saw the Vontastics in a list of artists whose only Billboard Hot 100 entry
spent exactly one week at #100.

The other side of the Beatles' single containing this song had more Hot 100
success when done by a soul act--"We Can Work It Out" by Stevie Wonder went
reached #13 in 1971.


I send you flowers but you don't care
You never seem to see me standing there
#T1) Fourmost: Hello Little Girl (1963) [-] {-}

TT: Performed by the Fabs at their failed 1962 Decca audition.

It's on the first ANTHOLOGY volume and was written by Lennon-McCartney.  The
VOL. 1.  NAVAIRHEADS mentioned a version by Gerry & the Pacemakers, which also
fits alphabetically.

People say I'm lonely
Only you know that's not true
You know I'm waiting for a chance
To prove my love to you
#T2) Quickly, Tommy: Tip Of My Tongue (1963) [-] {-}

I had gotten this CD out to listen to "Hello Little Girl", and while I had
it in my hands, I happened to notice that this one was a Lennon-McCartney
song as well.

One entry, which did name the title and artist correctly, also mentioned
a song called "Tip Of My Tongue" by the Grass Roots, which would have fit
alphabetically, except that I am familiar with the Grass Roots' song, and
it's not the same song.


This chart ranks the songs/artists from most to least recognized.  The second
number on the line denotes the average number of points scored on that song
(total points divided by number of entrants, to 2 decimal places).  For compar-
ison purposes, tie-breakers are scored here on the usual 20-point scale.

As you can see this was not a difficult quiz at all, although no song was
identified by every entry.  I expected "The Boy with the Beatle Hair" and
"Thank U Very Much" of the regular 25 songs to be the most difficult.
Although they did rank near the bottom, each was still identified by at
least half of the participants.
