RESULTS & ANSWER KEY for Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz #235 (GOLQ235)

The Coasters take the prize in GOLQ235, being just one tie-breaker short
of perfection.  Across the Boarder missed only the artist of a tie-breaker,
but lost first place due to one minor artist elision.  The teams of Randy
and Peter, the Village Idiots and the Gypsy's Caravan identified 80% or
more of the titles and artists.  Howard, you didn't really come in last
place; all those who decided not to enter are behind you.

I thank the baker's dozen participants for taking on this lyric quiz with
minimal lyrics.

Mick Tursky will be posting GOLQ236 by the weekend.

GOLDEN OLDIES LYRICS QUIZ #235 ANSWERS:

Answers are in the form:
#number) Artist: Title (year[s]) [peak position on Pop chart] {peak R&B}

[-]   = did not make pop chart
{-}   = did not make R&B chart
{F}   = made R&B chart as a flip side
{n/c} = no Billboard R&B chart published during this recording's period
        of peak popularity
=============================================================================

#01) Alaimo, Steve: "Every Day I Have To Cry" (1963) [46] {-}

    Written by Arthur Alexander, whose version hit the pop charts in 1975.

#02) Bell, William: "You Don't Miss Your Water" (1962) [95] {-}

    I was introduced to this song back in 1968 on Taj Mahal's second LP
    (THE NATCH'L BLUES).  Congratulations to John Santos of Really Rockin'
    In Boston who identified it based only on his knowledge of Taj's version.

#03) Bland, Bobby: "I Pity The Fool" (1961) [46] {1}

#04) Boone, Pat: "April Love" (1957/58) [1] {-}

    Steve Mc appreciated the stylistic incrongruity of juxtaposing Boone
    and Bland.  I think they should record a duet of "I Pity The April Fool."

#05) Channel, Bruce: "Going Back To Louisiana" (1964) [89] {n/c}

Ooh-ooh-ooh yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah my-my-my-my baby
#06) Charles, Sonny, & The Checkmates, Ltd.: "Black Pearl" (1969) [13] {8}

    und (Delphi) says:  Some copies of the 45 identified the artist as
    simply "The Checkmates Ltd." (I've got one) but most of them used
    this name (I've got one of them too).

#07) Dorsey, Lee: "Do-Re-Mi" (1961/62) [27] {22}

#08) Earl-Jean: "I'm Into Somethin' Good" (1964) [38] {n/c}

    Ethel "Earl-Jean" McCrae was a member of The Cookies.

#09) Exciters, The: "He's Got The Power" (1963) [57] {-}

#10) Jan & Dean: "Dead Man's Curve" (1964) [8] {n/c}

#11) Jones, Joe: "California Sun" (1961) [89] {-}

#12) Lee, Brenda: "Dum Dum" (1961) [4] {-}

#13) Little Richard: "Ooh! My Soul" (1958) [31] {15}

#15) Monkees, The: "Pleasant Valley Sunday" (1967) [3] {-}

#16) Parker, Little Junior: "Next Time You See Me" (1957) [74] {7}

#17) Peter, Paul & Mary: "Puff The Magic Dragon" (1963) [2] {10}

    und (Delphi) says: Some early copies of the 45 identified the song as
    simply "Puff" (with no subtitle, and I have one of them); as far as I
    know, all the rest had "The Magic Dragon" in parentheses (and I think
    I have one of them, too)

#18) Pets, The: "Cha-Hua-Hua" (1958) [34] {-}

#19) Ryan, Charlie, and The Timberline Riders: "Hot Rod Lincoln"
                                                               (1960) [33] {-}

                                                               (1967) [6] {-}

#21) Santo & Johnny: "Sleep Walk" (1959) [1] {4}

#22) Simmons, Gene: "Haunted House" (1964) [11] {n/c}

    Gene Simmons' death on August 29 continues a longstanding GOLQ tradition
    of an artist dying during the run of a GOLQ containing one of his songs.

    The official list of songs used in GOLQs mistakenly lists the artist as
    Jumpin' Gene Simmons.  I gave full credit for both answers.

Yea-a-a-a-a-h, all right, oh yea-a-a-a-a-h, come on come on come on

#T1) Big Walter & His Thunderbirds: "Pack Fair And Square" (1956) [-] {-}

    Written and performed by Big Walter Price in Houston, Texas on December
    21, 1955, it was released on Peacock 1666.  Personnel: Floyd Arceneaux,
    trumpet; Grady Gains and Clifford Burks, tenor sax; Odie Turner, piano;
    Nat Douglas, guitar; Carl Lott, bass; Jonny Perry, drums.  Big Walter
    (ne Walter Travis Price) based this song on Big Joe Turnerís "Flip Flop
    and Fly."  According to his web site <http://www.bigwalter.org>, Walter
    celebrated his 90th birthday on August 4, 2004.  I hope he's now in his
    93rd year.
    
    The Jay Geils Band did an excellent version of this song on their first
    LP, and they have a smoking version on their first live LP (FULL HOUSE).

#T2) Liggins, Joe, And His "Honeydrippers": "The Honeydripper (Parts 1 & 2)"
                                                               (1945) [-] {1}

    This recording is tied with Louis Jordan's "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie" for
    spending the most time at #1 in the history of Billboard's R&B charts--
    18 weeks.  Liggins recorded this song several times.  The best is the
    original release on Exclusive 207.  King Curtis also does a nice job
    with the song.
