RESULTS AND ANSWER KEY for Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz #270

In a GOLQ rarity, there was only one winner: DELPHI TRIVIA CLUB with a perfect
score. GYPSY'S CARAVAN AND COASTERS identified all the regular songs, MICK
TURSKY and WILL McCORRY just missed. Another rarity in GOLQ scoring, there was
only one tie in the overall scoring, (in fact, there were no ties up until the
last entry was received). The average score on this quiz was a relatively low
435. Thanks to all who entered. GOLQ271 will be posted shortly.

Tie-breakers
------------

     Several: Sampled by a 1989 Biz Markie song that's recently been featured
     in a ubiquitous (at least in America) Heineken TV commercial.
     Top 30 R&B song.

#T2) Small Faces: "Here Come The Nice" (1967) [-] {-}
     QM: A trivia question in England as one song that got an obvious drug
     reference past the BBC censors. It was their first release on the
     Immediate label that produced many great British Invasion songs that
     never made it to the American charts. I first picked this cut because
     I erroneously thought it was from their Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake album
     that was being discussed in our 60s newsgroup at the time.
