RESULTS & ANSWER KEY for Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz #336 (GOLQ336)

Congratulations to The Village Idiots and Delphi Trivia Club, who, with scores
of 500+., took first place in this quiz.  Close behind with a score of 498+.
were Vito and the Salutations. No entry correctly identified #T2. This was a
late substitution that wasn't well thought out. When I chose my original tie-
breakers, I was not aware of a version of #T1 that is apparently better known
than the one I had in mind. Since the artist for that version comes after the
one for my original #T2, I had to scramble to replace one of them. (Even my
original #T2 turns out to have other versions that are spread all over the
alphabet.) I inserted a new #T2 for which I knew of two recorded versions,
both of them close enough to the end of the alphabet to come after the appar-
ently best known version of the #T1 song. More details about these songs in
the tie-breakers section below.

Although there were no special themes for this GOLQ, I did have a few

1. For this first GOLQ of the half-decade of the latter half of the 2010s, I
   was able to include four first #1s of four other half-decades--1955 (#04),
   1960 (#18), 1965 (#01), and even 1970 (#23), because this song entered the
   chart in 1969. I had hoped to do this with the R&B chart too, but I was
   only able to use the one from 1965 (#22). The one from 1955 never made the
   pop chart, the one from 1960 was an instrumental, and the one from 1970 had
   been used in another GOLQ too recently.

2. I used a few duplicate names, some of which are obvious and some of which
     a. Two different groups called the Temptations (which is permitted under
        the rules).
     b. Two different songs called "Ain't That Loving You Baby" (with the
        third word spelled as "Lovin'" in some versions of both songs).
     c. A song called "Over and Over" and one which I used to think was called
        "Over and Over" because this phrase appears so much in the song (#16).
     d. Two groups with members named Mike Smith (#05 and #17).
     e. Two groups with members named Jim McCarty (#19 and #25) (and one with
        a member named James P. McCartney - #01).
     f. A singer named Maxine Brown and a group with a member named Maxine
        Brown who is a different person (#03).
     g. A song called "Ups and Downs" and one called "Up and Down," which was
        done by a group that, before they were famous, had a name similar to
        that of the group that did "Ups and Downs."

Some unintentional mini-themes also arose:

1. The wild, wild west, represented by the subject matter of #14 and #18, plus
   #23 won the Best Song Oscar after being included in a western movie.

2. Cadence Records--The first three years of the GOLQ era were only represented
   by one song each in this quiz, but I realized after I finished it that each
   was released on Archie Bleyer's Cadence record label. The Chordettes, the
   Everly Brothers, and Andy Williams were also probably the three biggest
   artists on this label.

GOLQ336's mean score was 414.85, and the median was 460.

My thanks to everyone who participated.

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

Baby says she's mine
You know she tells me all the time
You know she said so
I'm in love with her
#01) Beatles, The: I Feel Fine (1964/65) [1] {nc}

  This was the first #1 song of 1965 and thus the first #1 song of the
  second half of the 1960s.

My mama told me when rumors spread
There's truth somewhere and I should use my head
But I didn't listen to what she said
#02) Brown, Maxine: Oh No Not My Baby (1964/65) [24] {nc}

  This is the first time that I used a song written by Gerry Goffin
  and Carole King in a GOLQ since Goffin died last June, so this serves
  as my tribute to him.

There's a village
Hidden deep in the valley
Beneath the mountains high above
And there twenty years thereafter
#03) Browns, The: The Three Bells (1959) [1] {-}

  The Browns were three siblings--Bonnie, Maxine, and James "Jim Ed" Brown.
  Yes, I could have used a namesake of Jim Ed Brown's given name, too, but
  I wanted to spread things out more alphabetically.

  The EJ'S & Co. also gave the title of the French song on which this one
  is based, "Les Trois Cloches."

Someone to hold (someone to hold)
Would be so peachy before we're too old
So please turn on your magic beam
#04) Chordettes, The: Mr. Sandman (1954/55) [1] {-}

  This was the first #1 song of 1955 and thus the first #1 song of the second
  half of the 1950s and the first #1 song of the GOLQ era. This and "Lollipop"
  are my two favorite songs by the Chordettes. I love the following video of
  "Lollipop," in which the other two Cadence stars, Andy Williams and the
  Everly Brothers also appear. I think that's Andy pretending to do the pops
  in this lip-synched version. I'm also guessing that the pianist is Archie
  Bleyer. If this is from a TV show featuring all of these artists, I'd love
  to see the rest of it, but I haven't found it so far.

  The EJ'S and Co.: Knees played by Archie Bleyer, Orchestra conducted
  by Archie Bleyer.

All at once it happened
The prettiest in the world
I said a-won't you come over and a-talk to me
And be my girl
#05) Clark, Dave, Five: Over And Over (1965) [1] {-}

  Group member Mike Smith played keyboards and sang lead on most of their
  recordings, including this one. This song was written and originally
  recorded by Bobby Day, who released on the B-side of his big hit song,
  "Rock-in Robin." Despite being the B-side, it also charted, reaching #41
  in 1958. This was the Dave Clark Five's only #1 hit and in fact was the
  last #1 song of 1965. The DC5's version only reached #45 in the U.K.

Play that song called "Soul Twist"
Play that one called "I Know"
Don't forget them mashed potatoes
No other songs will do
#06) Cooke, Sam: Having A Party (1962) [17] {4}

  This was mainly chosen to insert a fairly well known song between the
  Dave Clark Five and where anything by Bobby Day would go in the alphabet
  to increase the chance that Mike Smith's group would be the artist named
  for "Over and Over."

  The EJ'S and Co.: Orchestra conducted by Rene Hall.

And here's the reason that I'm so free
My lovin' baby is through with me
#07) Everly Brothers: Bye Bye Love (1957) [2] {5}

  This was their first hit record. It reached #1 in Cashbox and on the
  country chart.

What was the use of cryin'
You know I brought it on myself
There's no denyin'
But it seems awful funny
That I didn't understand
Until I lost my upright man
#08) Franklin, Aretha: The House That Jack Built (1968) [6] {2}

  The B-side, a remake of Dionne Warwick's hit of the previous year,
  "I Say A Little Prayer," charted separately and reached #10.

And I don't wanna be hurted any more (no more)
Any more (no more)
Yeah yeah I've loved so hard
Everything I did was no joy
#09) George, Barbara: I Know (You Don't Love Me No More) (1961/62) [3] {1}

  After I chose "Having A Party" and the particular lyrics I used, I decided
  to include one of the three songs that were named or referred to. The Dave
  Clark Five's Mike Smith sang lead on most of their recordings, but Paul
  Revere and the Raiders' Mike "Smitty" Smith rarely handled lead vocals.
  However, on a remake of this song on their album JUST LIKE US, "Smitty" did
  sing lead. You can hear it at:

  The EJ'S and Co.: Music by A.F.O. Studio Combo.

You smiled, you smiled
Oh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
#10) James, Etta: At Last (1961) [47] {2}

  This is a song I never heard or even heard of until late October or early
  November 2011, when I received an email recapping a relative's wedding that
  took place just before that time. This song was noted as having been played.
  I figured it was some album cut or lesser-known single that one of them
  liked. In fact, this relative was a disc jockey around the time it would
  have been a hit, so he may have had the chance to hear songs that most
  people didn't hear back then. However, since that time, I've heard of it in
  even more contexts. Was it used in some 21st century movie or other context
  that brought it to the attention of a wider audience than the people who
  made it an R&B #2 song but only a pop #47 song 50 years earlier?

And when I see the sign that
Points one way
The lot we used to pass by
Every day
#11) Left Banke, The: Walk Away Renee (1966) [5] {-}

  The Four Tops' version reached #14 (#15 R&B) in 1968.

Feelin' sad
Sugar hurt so bad
That's how it is girl yeah
Till it comes
#12) McCoys, The: Up And Down (1966) [46] {-}

  The lead member of the McCoys was Rick Zehringer (later Rick Derringer, a
  name under which he had a few charting entries in the 1970s, most notably
  "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo"). The group was originally called Rick and the
  Raiders but changed it to avoid confusion with Paul Revere and the Raiders.
  The name McCoys comes from a record by The Ventures called "The McCoy."

Now he to-o-old you
That he'd love you much more than I
But he left you
And you don't, you just don't know why
#13) Mimms, Garnet, & the Enchanters: Cry Baby (1963) [4] {1}

  I think the first version of this song that I knew was by Janis Joplin,
  whose posthumously-released version reached #42 in 1971. Eventually I
  heard this one and like it a lot more. It was written by Bert Berns
  and Jerry Ragovoy.

Wyatt Earp and Big Cheyenne
Comin' through the TV
Shootin' up the land
#14) Olympics, The: Western Movies (1958) [8] {7}

If they gave me nine lives like an alley cat
I'd give them all to you and never take one back
#15) Presley, Elvis: Ain't That Loving You Baby (1964) [16] {nc}

  Elvis is in this GOLQ in honor of what would have been his 80th birthday on
  January 8, 2015. I chose this song of all of his many GOLQ-era charting hits
  for two reasons. One is that it's one of the few such songs by him that had
  never been used in a GOLQ before. Because it wasn't used before, there was
  no easy way to find out if the Jordanaires are part of the artist name.
  Thus, I gave credit for both forms of the artist name, although it turns
  out that their name is not on the label.

  The other reason is that there were two different songs called "Ain't That
  Loving You Baby" played on radio station WWDC in Washington, DC, in the fall
  of 1964, and I wanted to use both of them in this GOLQ. However, the other
  one, by Betty Everett and Jerry Butler, turns out to have not made the Hot
  100, although it did make the Bubbling Under and R&B charts as well as the
  radio station's own Top 40 survey, which was distributed in record stores.
  Thus, I had to go the tie-breaker route with the other song, only to find
  that the Everett/Butler version is not the best known one of that song. By
  the way, these are two different songs, even though the 2009 version of the
  Whitburn TOP POP SINGLES book, in the alphabetical song titles section,
  lists the Presley and Everett/Butler versions as being the same song (along
  with two other versions of the one done by Everett and Butler). The Whitburn
  book is usually pretty good about separating different songs with the same
  title as well as grouping separate recordings of the same song, even when
  the titles are different, but this is the second GOLQ in a row that I've
  done in which they "messed up." The other one was the opposite situation,
  in which different versions of the song "500 Miles"/"500 Miles Away From
  Home" were split into two songs.

  The two 1964 releases called "Ain't That Loving You Baby" had some other
  things in common besides the timing of their release:

  1. Both were part of two-sided hits in which the other side's title ended
     in the word "Me," and in both cases, they were the lesser hits on both
     the Billboard charts and WWDC's survey. For Betty Everett and Jerry
     Butler, their song was the B-side of "Let It Be Me," which reached #5
     on the Hot 100. For Elvis, his song was actually the A-side, but the
     B-side, "Ask Me," reached #12. (On "Ask Me," the Jordanaires do have
     label credit.) I remember hearing both "Let It Be Me" (the first version
     of this much-recorded song that I ever heard, and one of my two favorites,
     along with the one by Glen Campbell and Bobbie Gentry) and "Ask Me" on
     the radio more often than either "Ain't That Loving You Baby."

  2. Both songs were remakes of songs originally recorded in the 1950s.
     In both cases, the original version spelled the third word as "Lovin',"
     while the 1964 versions spelled it as "Loving."

  The song by Elvis was written by Ivory Joe Hunter and Clyde Otis. Among
  those who have recorded it are Eddie Riff and Orchestra (original version),
  Bill Black's Combo, the Beau Brummels, the Grass Roots, and Wanda Jackson
  (in 2006).

  Here is the original version by Eddie Riff and Orchestra:

  Here is an earlier version by Elvis:

  More information on the one done by Betty Everett and Jerry Butler
  is in the tie-breakers section.

Oh-oh-over and over
I try to prove my love to you
#16) Price, Lloyd: Personality (1959) [2] {1}

  For many years, starting when I first heard the song in 1959, I thought
  it was called "Over and Over."

  Team Teitelbaum: Some original-label pressings show the title as
  "(You've Got) Personality." Label shows artist as "Lloyd Price and
  His Orchestra." The EJ'S and Co. also noted the orchestra.

Girl I've tried to change your way of thinking
Tried to make you see
Livin' here with me
Is where you ought to be
#17) Revere, Paul, and the Raiders: Ups And Downs (1967) [22] {-}

  Unlike some of the Raiders' singles, this one does not say "Featuring Mark
  Lindsay."  No entries used this form of the artist name.

  Group member Mike "Smitty" Smith played drums for the group up until shortly
  after this song was a hit. Unfortunately, he died in 2001, and the Dave
  Clark Five's Mike Smith is also deceased. Revere himself died in October
  2014. This is the first GOLQ I've done since then, so this song is here as a
  tribute to both him and Smitty. Another member, Drake Levin, has also passed
  away. He had already left the group by the time they did this song. Here is
  a video of the group doing this song on THE SMOTHERS BROTHERS SHOW. The
  vocals are not lip-synched, but the instrumental backing sounds like it
  comes from the record:

  Smitty is playing the drums, although most of the spotlight is on lead
  singer Mark Lindsay and keyboardist Revere. The bass player is Phil "Fang"
  Volk. The guitarist is Jim "Harpo" Valley. Both Volk and Valley left the
  group not long after this time. Smith, Volk, and Levin formed a group called
  The Brotherhood, while Valley attempted a solo career. (There is a stretch
  of railroad running between Rydal and Meadowbrook north of Philadelphia in
  which the road running along it on one side is called Lindsay Lane, and the
  one on the other side is called Valley Road. I always think of the 1966-
  early 1967 configuration of Paul Revere and the Raiders when I see these

  The B-side of this record, "Leslie," sometimes listed as "Ain't Nobody Who
  Can Do It Like Leslie Can," was one of the few Raiders' records on which
  Paul Revere himself sang lead. You can hear it at:

Nighttime would find me in Rose's Cantina
Music would play
And Felina would whirl
#18) Robbins, Marty: El Paso (1959/60) [1] {-}

  This was the first #1 song of 1960 and thus the first #1 song of the 1960s.

I worry 'bout you baby
Spendin' nights in misery
#19) Ryder, Mitch, and the Detroit Wheels: Jenny Take A Ride!
                                                           (1965/66) [10] {-}

  One of the guitarists in this group was named Jim McCarty. He and drummer
  John Badanjek were later members of the Rockets, who had a few charting
  singles in 1979 and 1980.

In the end you'll still be you
One that's done all the things you set out to do
#20) Sly & the Family Stone: Stand! (1969) [22] {14}

  Normally, when I'm doing a non-themed GOLQ, I'll go through the TOP POP
  SINGLES book in a part of the alphabet where I'd like to put a song looking
  for songs from one or more years I want to represent. This time, looking for
  an "S" artist from 1969, I went to the R&B chart book because I felt that
  this GOLQ had too much of a pop bent thus far and found this song. Sly & the
  Family Stone's song "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)" was the first
  Hot 100 #1 song of the 1970s that didn't enter the chart until 1970. Between
  "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on my Head" and that one, there were two other #1's
  that had entered the chart in late 1969--"I Want You Back" by the Jackson 5
  and "Venus" by the Shocking Blue.

I'll hold you in my arms
For now and ever more
And we will walk together
Through love's sacred door
#21) Temptations, The: Barbara (1960) [29] {-}

  I first learned of this song when Casey Kasem read a letter on an AMERICAN
  TOP 40 countdown show asking if there had ever been two different groups
  with the same name who had both made the Billboard Top 40. He mentioned
  "Barbara" by the Temptations, which was not the same group as the famous
  Motown Temptations. This Temptations was a white doo-wop group from
  Flushing, NY.

I guess you'll say
What can make me feel this way?
#22) Temptations, The: My Girl (1965) [1] {1}

  I had been thinking of putting both Temptations in a GOLQ for some time.
  When I finally decided to do it, I chose "My Girl" because it was the first
  #1 R&B song of 1965 and thus the first #1 R&B song of the second half of
  the 1960s. More importantly, it was the first #1 song on the R&B chart after
  it returned after being discontinued for more than a year. The first #1 R&B
  song of 1955 was "You Upset Me Baby" by B.B. "Blues Boy" King and His
  Orchestra, which never made the pop chart. It was actually a holdover from
  1954. The first new #1 R&B song of 1955 was "Earth Angel (Will You Be Mine)"
  by the Penguins. The first #1 R&B song of 1960 was "The Clouds" by the
  Spacemen, an instrumental which was a holdover from 1959. The first new #1
  of 1960 was also an instrumental--"Smokie--Part 2" by Bill Black's Combo.
  I had thought that the first #1 R&B song of 1970 was "I Want You Back" by
  the Jackson 5 (used too recently in GOLQ320), but that was the first new #1
  R&B song of 1970. The first #1 R&B song of 1970, a holdover from 1969,
  was another Motown song, "Someday We'll be Together" by Diana Ross and
  the Supremes.

  Vito & the Salutations, Delphi Trivia Club, and DEC & Friends noted
  the presence of two different groups called the Temptations.

  I have come across other groups called The Temptations:

  - A vocal group from New Jersey with a Buddy Holly-like sound, who recorded
    on the Savoy and Parkway labels,:

  - An instrumental surf group:

  - Another instrumental group, featuring Bob Moore (Nashville bass player)
    and Roy Buchanan:

  - Cody Brennan and the Temptations, doing quite a different rendition "Ruby
    Baby" than Dion's:

I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me
#23) Thomas, B.J.: Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head (1969/70) [1] {-}

  This was the first #1 song of 1970 and thus the first #1 song of the post-
  GOLQ era. However, at least into the first couple of months of 1970, songs
  that had entered the Hot 100 in 1969 remained on the chart. Hit songs of the
  1970s that were originally released before then have sometimes found their
  way into GOLQs as tie-breakers (such as "Beginnings" by Chicago in GOLQ320).
  Or the same recording of the same song may have charted separately in the
  1955-1969 time period and again in 1970 or later (such as "Solitary Man" by
  Neil Diamond). Of course, many hit songs of the post-GOLQ time period were
  remakes of songs from the GOLQ era (see GOLQ245 for 27 examples).

  "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head" was written by Burt Bacharach and Hal
  David. It won the Best Song Oscar for 1969 after being featured in the movie

A change of scene
Was the most I bargained for
And then I discovered you
And in your eyes
I found a love that I couldn't ignore
#24) Williams, Andy: Canadian Sunset (1956) [7] {-}

  I checked the W's in the R&B chart book for a 1956 song. I didn't find any-
  thing suitable (alas, Jackie Wilson didn't chart until 1958), so it was back
  to the TOP POP SINGLES book, where I found this one. Of the three major
  Cadence artists represented in this GOLQ, Andy Williams actually had the
  longest-lasting Hot 100 success. After moving to Columbia in 1961, he con-
  tinued to make the Hot 100 through 1976. His last Top 10 hit was "(Where Do
  I Begin) Love Story," which reached #9 in 1971. The Everly Brothers had one
  song just barely make the Top 50 in 1984. Their last Hot 100 entry before
  that was "Bowling Green," #40 in 1967. By then they had been recording for
  Warner since 1960. The Chordettes did not have any more Hot 100 hits after
  their last ones for Cadence in 1961.

  The EJ'S and Co.: Orchestra Conducted by Archie Bleyer.

  Other charting versions of this song:
  - Hugo Winterhalter with Eddie Heywood, #2 in 1956
  - Etta Jones, #91 in 1961
  - Sounds Orchestral, #76 in 1965

It seems to me I've been here before
The sounds I heard and the sights I saw
Was it real, was it in my dreams
I need to know what it all means
#25) Yardbirds, The: Happenings Ten Years Time Ago (1966/67) [30] {-}

  This group's drummer was Jim McCarty. He continued to tour with a group of
  Yardbirds long after the other members, including their three superstar
  guitarists Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page, were gone.


You know I love you baby
Know I love you baby
You know I love you baby
And you don't even know my name
#T1) Reed, Jimmy: Ain't That Lovin' You Baby (1956) [-] {3}
(named by 4 entries and thus becoming the "official" answer due to having a
plurality of mentions)


#T1) Everett, Betty, and Jerry Butler: Ain't That Loving You Baby
                                                            (1964) [108] {24}
(named by 1 entry and the version I had in mind when I picked this song)

  Before I put together the first version of this GOLQ, I didn't know about
  earlier versions of this song that I only knew by Betty Everett and Jerry
  Butler. But Jimmy Reed wrote it and originally recorded it in 1956. It has
  been recorded by many artists since then. None have ever made the Hot 100,
  but one other version made the Bubbling Under chart. The Everly Brothers
  made it to #133, also in 1964 but a few months earlier (on the Warner label).
  These lyrics come from the Everett/Butler version and may vary in other

  In their entry, The Coasters mentioned a version by Rod Stewart, in addition
  to Jimmy Reed. Among the others who have recorded this song are Dale Hawkins,
  Link Wray and the Wraymen, Etta James, Peter and Gordon, Bonnie Bramlett,
  David Houston, Steve Miller Band, and Eric Clapton. So far, I have not come
  across anyone who has done both songs called "Ain't That Lovin' You Baby."

  Original version by Jimmy Reed:

  Betty Everett and Jerry Butler:

Why you wanna put-a me down
Run my face into the ground
What did I ever do to you
To make you do the thing that you do
#T2) Wailers, The: You Weren't Using Your Head (1965) [-] {-}

  I found this song when I was playing around on Wikipedia with the names of
  well-known people who have (or had) the same name as other well-known people.
  One such name I looked at was Robin Roberts, the name of a (male) baseball
  player who is in the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame and also of a
  (female) T.V. personality. As a result of this, I found "Rockin'" Robin
  Roberts (real name Lawrence Fewell Roberts II), a male rock and roll singer
  of the late 1950s and early 1960s who coincidentally has the same birthday,
  November 23, as Robin Roberts the T.V. personality. "Rockin'" Robin Roberts
  took his name from the Bobby Day song "Rock-in Robin." His best known song
  was the much-recorded "Louie Louie."

  "Rockin'" Robin Roberts got his start in Washington State, where the Wailers
  were also based. He sang with them sometimes. For this song, they recorded
  separate versions, with slightly different lyrics. I used the lyrics from
  the Wailers' version because I thought that this group, who charted with
  some instrumentals, including "Tall Cool One," would be more familiar to
  people than "Rockin'" Robin Roberts'. I guessed wrong on this one. Also, the
  name of the Wailers comes alphabetically after almost every version of the
  Jimmy Reed "Ain't That Lovin' You Baby" listed above.

  Roberts' career was cut short by his death in an automobile accident in 1967.
  Even then though, he was no longer working full-time in the music business.
  He had gotten a Masters degree in biochemistry and worked as a chemist.

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.

The 25 regular songs did about what I expected them to do, but I thought the
tie-breakers would do better.
