RESULTS & ANSWER KEY for Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz #294 (GOLQ294)

Congratulations to Delphi Trivia Club who took first place in this quiz with
a perfect score of 500++. Really Rockin' In Boston, with a score of 500..,
was closely behind. Will McCorry partially identified every regular song and
one of the tie-breakers to take third place.

GOLQ294's mean score was 441.13, and the median was 460. Although there was
no theme, I did include a mini-theme of six songs with six different days of
the week in the title. There was no Thursday song. I could not find a GOLQ-
era charting song with Thursday in the title, or even a tie-breaker that would
be reasonably well-known. The only GOLQ-era song with Thursday in the title
that I know is "Thursday Morning," done in 1968 by Jon and Robin (after they
dropped the In Crowd). This was on their second album, ELASTIC EVENT, and also
was the B-side of their Bubbling Under entry "You Got Style." I considered it
to be too obscure to even be a tie-breaker, choosing instead a Saturday song
from a top-selling album by a group that did a reunion tour earlier this summer
with most of their original members and, according to reports, performed this
song. I did use the only GOLQ-era charting song that contains Wednesday in its
title. It proved by far to be the hardest song to identify in this quiz, with
even the two tie-breakers performing considerably better.

Entries that mentioned the mini-theme or something close to it were from Team
Teitelbaum, The Coasters, Mike Weaver, Team Asia, Will McCorry, and Vito & the

Other mini-themes, some of which I didn't expect anyone else to figure out:

* Two songs written by P.F. Sloan and Steve Barri;

* 7 songs by namesakes of pitchers who have started games for the
  Philadelphia Phillies this year; and

* A very unintentional theme--"Your Mother (and Father) Should Know".
  I realized after I put this quiz together that I had subconsiously included
  quite a few artists and/or songs that appealed a lot to our parents in the
  1955-1969 time frame: The Ames Brothers, Harry Belafonte, Nat "King" Cole
  (a particular favorite of my mother), the song "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes,"
  Steve & Eydie, Andy Williams (a particular favorite of my father), and
  Oscar Best Song winners from two consecutive years, "Moon River," and "Never
  On Sunday." (The idea that a song called "It's Hard Out Here For A Pimp"
  could win this award was unthinkable in 1960 and 1961!) The Chordettes,
  Connie Francis, Trini Lopez, and possibly Esther Phillips had cross-over
  appeal to both teens and their parents.

Finally, one and a half of the songwriting teams featured in GOLQ285 are
represented in this one, too.

My thanks to everyone who participated.

Tom and Rick (the NAVAIRHEADS) have posted GOLQ295.

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

Our town was peaceful and quiet
Before she came on the scene
The lady has started a riot
Disturbing a suburban routine
#01) Ames Brothers, The: The Naughty Lady Of Shady Lane (1954/55) [3] {-}

  I had heard of this song, but I don't think I had heard it until recently.

My heart is down
My head is turning around
I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town
#02) Belafonte, Harry: Jamaica Farewell (1956/57) [14] {-}

  This is a song I have known since childhood, but I never knew its title
  until recently. On the other hand, I knew that Belafonte had done a song
  called "Jamaica Farewell" but didn't know it was this song! I remember a
  parody by Allan Sherman that goes, "I'm upside down, my head is turning
  around, because I gotta sell the house in Levittown."

Waiting round the bend
My huckleberry friend
#03) Butler, Jerry: Moon River (1961/62) [11] {14}

  In another coincidence in this GOLQ, this is the first of two consecutive
  songs in this GOLQ that won the Academy Award (Oscar) for Best Song in
  consecutive, but descending order, years. This song won in 1961, when it
  was featured in the movie BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S. Music by Henry Mancini
  and lyrics by Johnny Mercer. A version of this song by Mancini also
  charted in 1961/62 and also peaked at #11 on the Hot 100.

Or you can kiss me on a Wednesday,
A Thursday, a Friday,
And Saturday is best
#04) Chordettes, The: Never On Sunday (1961) [13] {-}

  This song won the Best Song Oscar in 1961, when it served as the title
  song for the film of the same name. Words and music by Manos Hadjidakis.
  Sometimes, I have been known to select for a GOLQ a #1 song from the same
  month a multiple of five years earlier. This time, I dug a little deeper
  into the chart. This song entered the Hot 100 on June 19, 1961, the same
  week as the birthday of the girl who was my best friend at the time. She
  was of Greek ancestry, and at her birthday party, her mother played us a
  version of this song sung in Greek. I must have heard it a lot that day,
  or maybe I got to hear it again on subsequent visits to her home, because
  the words stuck with me for at least a couple of weeks. On June 30, I went
  on a train trip from Washington, DC, to Cleveland with my mother and other
  relatives to attend a cousin's wedding. I sang this song with the Greek
  lyrics as one way to keep me occupied on this long trip. A woman sitting
  near us said to my mother, "Did you know that your daughter is singing in
  Greek?" My mother was quite surprised to learn this! And in case you're
  wondering, yes, my cousin and his wife just marked their 50th wedding

Don't have to tell a girl and fella about a drive-in
Or some romantic movie scene
Why, from the moment that those lovers start arrivin'
You'll see more kissin' in the cars than on the screen
#05) Cole, Nat "King": Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days Of Summer (1963) [6] {11}

  Quite likely my favorite Nat "King" Cole song. Nat "King" Cole is in this
  GOLQ to honor Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels.

'Cause Thursday is a hard-workin' day
And Friday I get my pay
#06) Domino, Fats: Blue Monday (1957) [5] {1}

Monday morning feels so bad
Everybody seems to nag me
Come in Tuesday I feel better
Even my old man looks good
#07) Easybeats, The: Friday On My Mind (1967) [16] {-}

  This may very well be my favorite of all songs that contain a day of the
  week in their title.

Now I love you
You know it too
Baby don't change your ways
#08) Five Stairsteps & Cubie: Don't Change Your Love (1968) [59] {15}

  Earlier this year, I wondered who the last-born artist (solo performer
  or group member) of the GOLQ era could be. My first thought was Michael
  Jackson, born on August 29, 1958. But then I remembered that Susan Cowsill
  was born later, on May 20, 1959. Eventually, I remembered Cubie Burke.
  Cubie's five older siblings in the Burke family of Chicago, who were all
  teenagers, recorded under the name The Five Stairsteps in the mid-1960s.
  In that configuration, they had six Hot 100 entries, only one of which I
  remember--"Ain't Gonna Rest (Till I Get You)." Cubie joined them starting
  in late 1967, and the group became known as The Five Stairsteps & Cubie.
  They then had six more Hot 100 songs plus one that made the Bubbling Under
  chart. This was the highest Hot 100-charting song that included Cubie in
  the group's name. Eventually, though, Cubie's name was dropped. The first
  entry with just The Five Stairsteps as the group's name again was their
  biggest hit, "O-o-h Child," which reached #8 in 1970. (However, I have
  heard "O-o-h Child" announced as being by The Five Stairsteps and Cubie
  on oldies radio stations.)

  I was not able to find Cubie's date of birth, but his age is shown as five
  in my Whitburn Top Pop Singles book and three on their Wikipedia page.
  Because of the importance I placed on Cubie's appearance in this GOLQ, I
  deducted points for omitting his name.

  The next exercise is to find the earliest-born artist of the GOLQ era.
  Jimmy Durante is listed as having been born on February 10, 1893, in my
  Whitburn book. Was there anyone before that?

I told myself it's best that I forget you
Though I'm a fool at least I know the score
Yet darling I'd be twice as blue without you
It hurts but I'd come running back for more
#09) Francis, Connie: Everybody's Somebody's Fool (1960) [1] {2}

  This is my all-time favorite Connie Francis song. Lyrics by Howard
  Greenfield, music by, no, not Neil Sedaka (who is sometimes erroneously
  credited for this) but by Jack Keller.

I don't want her
She didn't love me anyway
She only wanted someone to play with
But all I wanted was a love to stay
#10) Hamilton, Roy: You Can Have Her (1961) [12] {6}

  This song has charted several times. Hamilton's was the highest-charting
  version. Another one I remember was by Sam Neely, which reached #34 in 1974.
  Roy Hamilton is in this GOLQ to honor Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay (Roy H.).

If I had a song
I'd sing it in the morning
I'd sing it in the evening
All over this land
#11) Lopez, Trini: If I Had A Hammer (1963) [3] {12}

  This is another much-recorded and much-performed song, although the only
  other recording that has ever made the Billboard Hot 100 chart was the
  one by Peter, Paul, and Mary that reached #10 in 1962. (I would have given
  full credit for Peter, Paul, and Mary for any entry that did not identify
  #12-#14.) Written by Pete Seeger and Lee Hays.

The eastern world, it is explodin'
Violence flarin', bullets loadin'
You're old enough to kill but not for votin'
You don't believe in war but what's that gun you're totin'
And even the Jordan River has bodies floatin'
#12) McGuire, Barry: Eve Of Destruction (1965) [1] {-}

  Written by P.F. Sloan and Steve Barri, a Los Angeles-based songwriting team
  of the mid-1960s whom I have been learning a lot about lately, especially
  issued by Ace Records in the U.K. in 2010.

I'm just beginning to see
Now I'm on my way
It doesn't matter to me
Chasing the clouds away
#13) Moody Blues, The: Tuesday Afternoon (Forever Afternoon) (1968) [24] {-}

  From the album DAYS OF FUTURE PASSED. This is the first of two consecutive
  songs in the GOLQ that I didn't know had parenthetical portions to their
  titles until relatively recently.

I love you and I'm dreamin' of you
But that won't do
#14) Orbison, Roy: Dream Baby (How Long Must I Dream) (1962) [4] {-}

  Roy Orbison is in this GOLQ to honor Phillies pitcher Roy Oswalt (Roy O.).
  I have two other favorite renditions of this song. One is Glen Campbell's
  remake, which reached #31 in 1971 (in which I especially love a key
  change included in the song). The other is a recording by Washington, DC,
  area group The Hangmen, which was played on the radio there in 1966. Like
  Orbison's hit, it was released on the Monument label. More than 30 years
  later, I read somewhere on the Internet that the Hangmen's version was
  never officially released to the record-buying public, only to radio
  stations. However, the following YouTube video shows a label scan of what
  appears to be a released (not a promotional) copy:

  (There are also YouTube videos of this recording that do show label scans
  of promotional copies.)

  Six years before Glen Campbell had his hit with this song, he performed
  it on SHINDIG!

  In the 1990s, I first heard a 1960s recording of a song called "Dream Baby"
  by Cher that is not the same song as this one.

A love like ours
Could never die
As long as I have you near me
#15) Phillips, Esther: And I Love Him (1965) [54] {11}

  A gender-changing version of the Lennon-McCartney song from A HARD DAY'S
  NIGHT, "And I Love Her." I did not know about the existence of this
  recording when I put together my first-ever GOLQ, GOLQ215, and thus didn't
  think to look to see if it had been used in the past 50 GOLQs. I have to
  confess that I thus unwittingly broke the re-use rule by not doing so
  because it had been used in that time period.

They said some day you'll find
All who love are blind
Ohhhh ohhhh
When your heart's on fire
You must realize
#16) Platters, The: Smoke Gets In Your Eyes (1958/59) [1] {3}

Got a rovin' eye
And that is why she satisfies my soul
Got the only walkin' talkin'
#17) Richard, Cliff, and the Drifters: Living Doll (1959) [30] {-}

  Cliff Richard is in this GOLQ to honor Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee. Actually,
  Cliff Richard's real name is Harry Webb. And ironically, Phillies pitcher
  Roy Halladay's real first name is Harry, too. (The Roy comes from his middle
  name, Leroy.) Finally, Harry Belafonte's real first name is Harold, which
  was also the real first name of long-time Phillies broadcaster Harry Kalas!
  (And my only nephew's first name is Harry, so that is probably why I notice
  this name so much.)

  In the 1960s, after the Beatles and other British groups found success in
  the U.S., I heard about English singer Cliff Richard. But he wasn't having
  hits here. I don't think I ever heard a song by him until his #6 smash
  "Devil Woman" in 1976. He had several more hits after that. Only later did
  I find out that he had six Hot 100 and two Bubbling Under chart entries
  between 1959 and 1973. "Living Doll" was the first of these and the second
  highest-charting (after "It's All In The Game"). Four of these chart entries
  came between December 1963 and August 1964, at the height of Beatlemania.
  So, there probably was an effort made then to market Cliff Richard to the
  U.S. market after all!

  The Drifters on this record are, of course, not to be confused with the
  American R&B group with the same name. This was the only U.S.-charting
  Cliff Richard song to feature them.

They've given you a number
And taken away your name
#18) Rivers, Johnny: Secret Agent Man (1966) [3] {-}

  Written by P.F. Sloan and Steve Barri. Theme from the T.V. show of the same
  name. An instrumental version by the Ventures lost out in the competing
  covers battle and only reached #54.

Please don't try to bother me
I'm in another world, you see
I'm trying to erase her from my mind
#19) Royal Guardsmen, The: Wednesday (1967) [97] {-}

  What? They did songs about topics other than Snoopy and the Red Baron?

  That's right! Unfortunately, once an artist has become associated with
  a novelty recording or two or three or four, they are stuck in that rut,
  and even a lovely song (in my opinion) like this one becomes overlooked.
  If it had been done by, say, the Association, Chad & Jeremy, the Grass
  Roots, or any one of a number of other sunshine pop acts of the 1960s,
  it could have been a huge hit. But in the hands of the "Snoopy" song group,
  it just barely made the Hot 100. This song is listed with the title
  "Any Wednesday" in some places, so I accepted either form of the title.

  The Royal Guardsmen did manage to reach #35 with another non-"Snoopy"
  ballad, "Baby Let's Wait," in early 1969. Perhaps it is not surprising
  that "Wednesday" is my favorite Royal Guardsman song, and "Baby Let's Wait"
  (which was also done by the Young Rascals) is my second favorite.

  The only YouTube video of "Wednesday" by the Royal Guardsmen also features
  three other non-Snoopy songs by the group. It's the first song in this
  video, so you won't have to listen to any of the others before it comes on.
  However, I think the others are also good listens.

But neither one will ever give in
So they gazed at an eight-by-ten
Thinkin' 'bout the things that might have been
And it's a dirty rotten shame
#20) South, Joe: Games People Play (1969) [12] {-}

  Joe South contributed some words to my vocabulary in the 1960s. And I'm
  not referring here to his use of the h-word and almost use of the d-word
  in other parts of this song. I'm referring to:

    "Boondocks" - In the title of the hit that Team Asia noted that he wrote
                  for Billy Joe Royal, "Down In The Boondocks."

    "Introspect" - Title of his first album, which includes this song.

    "gofer" - Listed in the credits on one of his albums as a role performed
              by someone (and defined along with the listing).

  For many years, I thought that I knew of three different charting songs
  called "Games People Play," one each from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.
  This is the 1960s song, of course. The 1980s song, by the Alan Parsons
  Project (peaked at #16 in 1981), is indeed also called "Games People Play."
  But now I have learned that the 1970s song, by the Spinners (peaked at #5
  in 1975), is officially called ""They Just Can't Stop It" The (Games People
  Play)" (complete with those quote marks as part of the title). However,
  my Whitburn book notes that first pressings of this record were issued
  as "Games People Play." So I may have been correct all along.

  Joe South is in this GOLQ to honor Phillies pitcher Joe Blanton (who has
  not pitched much this year due to injuries).

[voice 1]
My friends think I'm an awful bore
Ever since I fell in love with you
[voice 2]
I'm not well-rounded any more
There's just one thing I like to do
#21) Steve & Eydie: I Can't Stop Talking About You (1963/64) [35] {n/c}

  Written by Gerry Goffin & Carole King (and almost used in GOLQ285). Steve &
  Eydie are, of course, Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme, who were and still
  are husband and wife offstage. Steve Lawrence and Trini Lopez are included
  in this GOLQ to honor Steve Lopez, the author of the book THE SOLOIST.

You made my life so rich
You know you could have been some money
And baby you're so sweet
You know you could have been some honey
#22) Temptations, The: The Way You Do The Things You Do (1964) [11] {n/c}

  Lead vocal on this one was by group member Eddie Kendricks, whose Wikipedia
  entry notes that his original last name was Kendrick. Thus, a Temptations
  song with Eddie Kendricks singing lead is in this GOLQ to honor Phillies
  pitcher Kyle Kendrick.

  I have come across three other groups called The Temptations. One of them
  had a GOLQ-charting song called "Barbara," while another recorded for the
  Cameo-Parkway label that was based in Philadelphia.

East side cafes
West side plays
Uptown, downtown
I'll be there
#23) Thomas, B.J.: The Eyes Of A New York Woman (1968) [28] {-}

  This is my favorite B.J. Thomas hit of the GOLQ era.

You say you're lookin' for someone
Who'll promise never to part
Someone to close his eyes to you
Someone to close his heart
#24) Turtles, The: It Ain't Me, Babe (1965) [8] {-}

  This song is included in this GOLQ to mark the recent 70th birthday of its
  writer, Bob Dylan. This is my second favorite recording of any Bob Dylan
  song, after "Don't Think Twice" by the Wonder Who (which I used in GOLQ281).
  Several of the Turtles' other hits, including "You Baby" and "Can I Get To
  Know You Better," were written by Sloan and Barri.

A place where there's this loneliness
Where dim lights bring forgetfulness
Where broken dreams and memories meet
#25) Williams, Andy: Lonely Street (1959) [5] {20}

  I think of this song every time I pass a street in Northeast Philadelphia
  called Loney (sic) Street. Loney Street is one of those streets that goes
  for a few blocks, ends, then picks up again where it would have been if it
  hadn't ended before, and then does this a few more times, eventually ending
  up in the community of Rockledge in the suburbs. Where's this place called
  Loney Street? Go to Google Maps and type in, "Fox Chase Road and Daley
  Street, Rockledge, PA." When the map displays, first note that a third
  street comes into this intersection. It happens to be where the naughty
  lady lives. Then, follow Daley Street about two blocks southwest, where it
  ends across from a cemetery in an intersection with Loney Street.


I'm goin' to Alabama
Back from Texarkana
Goin' all around the world
My father don't like it
My brother don't like it
My sister don't like it
My mother don't like it
#T1) Lee, Brenda: Let's Jump The Broomstick (1958) [-] {-}

  This song is included in this GOLQ for the following reasons:

  1. Because I had wanted to include Brenda Lee, one of the few non-R&B
     female artists in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in GOLQ290 but didn't.

  2. To honor Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee (even though I had already
     included a Cliff).

  3. But most importantly because I discovered this song through a segment
     of the British T.V. show READY STEADY GO! in which Paul McCartney
     judges  a contest featuring four girls miming to this song that has
     been posted multiple times on YouTube. I love this song and the girls'
     performances. Here is one of the YouTube postings:

But if you love a Wednesday
You'll live your life apart now
And if you love a Thursday
She's gonna break your heart
#T2) Monkees, The: Saturday's Child (1966) [-] {-}

  Written by David Gates, who was part of the 1970s hitmaking group Bread.
  Three of the Monkees--Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz, and Peter Tork--toured
  earlier this summer. The tour was supposed to resume in August, but it
  has been cancelled for "business reasons" according to various sources.
  Set lists from this tour that were posted online showed "Saturday's Child"
  as one of the songs that were performed. This was on their first album,
  released 45 years ago this coming fall. September 12 marks the 45th
  anniversary of the debut of their T.V. show. There were many Saturday
  songs from which to choose for this GOLQ, but I went with this one to
  celebrate this anniversary early.

  This song was also recorded by Herman's Hermits (which would have been
  an acceptable response on any entry that did not identify #T1).


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
comparison purposes, tie-breakers are scored here on the usual 20-point scale.

Unlike the last GOLQ, on which no song got a perfect score, seven songs were
at least partially identified this time. Ten more were at least partially
identified by all but one entry. Among these 17 songs, the only one that I
was really surprised to see that high was "The Eyes Of A New York Woman."
"You Can Have Her" ranked lower than I expected it to rank. I expected the
five lowest-ranking regular songs to be the ones that did turn up in these
slots, possibly doing worse than one or both tie-breakers. In this regard,
"Living Doll" did better than expected, while "I Can't Stop Talking About You"
tied with the higher-ranking tie-breaker. But I expected "Wednesday" to do
a little better because of the theme.
