RESULTS & ANSWER KEY for Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz #361 (GOLQ361)

Congratulations to the Delphi Trivia Club and the EJ'S & Co., who, with scores
of 500++, took first place in this quiz.  Really Rockin' in Boston was next
with a score of 500.+.

The mini-themes were artists who participated in the following movies:

* T.A.M.I. SHOW - This was a concert held at the Santa Monica Civic Center on
October 28 and 29, 1964.  The movie was released on December 29, 1964.  I saw
it with several friends at the Allen Theater in Takoma Park, MD, not long after
its release.  When I visited Santa Monica in 2000, I noticed that the Santa
Monica Civic Center was across the street from the back entrance of the hotel
where I stayed, and I immediately thought of the T.A.M.I. SHOW.  Publicity for
the show spelled out the initials two different ways, as Teenage Awards Music
International and Teen Age Music International.

Artists for this movie are #01, #03 (two-fer), #04, #09, #10, #11, #13 (theme
song from this movie, which also mentions most of the artists), #14, #17
(artist in movie but not mentioned in song), #24 (two-fer if you count a member
who joined the group after the GOLQ era), and #25.  Team Teitelbaum, The
Coasters, The EJ'S & Co., and Vito and the Salutations mentioned this theme.

* THE LAST WALTZ - This was a concert held at Winterland Ballroom in San
Francisco on November 25, 1976.  It marked the farewell appearance of the group
The Band.  The movie was released on April 26, 1978.  I saw it at a movie
theater at Wheaton Plaza in Wheaton, MD, on May 18 of that year.  I attended a
40th anniversary celebration of this concert at the Free Library of Phildelphia
on November 16, 2016, featuring a presentation by group leader Robbie
Robertson, which gave me the idea to include this as a mini-theme.

Artists for this movie are #02, #05, #06, #08, #12, #19, #23, #24 (only if you
count a member who joined the group after the GOLQ era), and #T2.  Will McCorry
mentioned this theme.

* ROCK, ROCK, ROCK! - This is a movie with a simple storyline that features
several r&b and early rock and roll artists.  It was released on December 7,
1956.  This is one of two movies featured in this quiz in which a future star
of the 1970s hit T.V. series THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW appeared.  Valerie
Harper, who played Rhoda on that show, had an uncredited role as a dancer in a
prom scene.

Artists for this movie are #03 (two-fer), #07, #16, #18, and #22.  The EJ'S &
Co. mentioned this theme.

* ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK - This is a movie with a storyline that features
several r&b and early rock and roll artists.  It was released on March 21,
1956.  The EJ'S & Co. mentioned this theme and noted that it was produced by
Sam Katzman, who later produced several Elvis Presley films.

Artists for this movie are #20 and #T1 (two-fer).  The EJ'S & Co. mentioned
this theme.

* DON'T KNOCK THE ROCK - This is a movie with a storyline that stars Alan Dale,
a performer I had never heard of before I chose his vocal version of "Cherry
Pink and Apple Blossom White" for GOLQ357.  It features several r&b and early
rock and roll artists.  It was released on December 14, 1956.

Artists for this movie are #15 and #T1 (two-fer).  (Nobody mentioned this

* CHANGE OF HABIT - This was Elvis Presley's 31st and final movie acting role.
It was released on November 10, 1969.  I saw it on a DVD or VHS cassette
borrowed from a library some time in the 2000s.  Elvis' co-star in this movie
was Mary Tyler Moore, who died on January 25, 2017.  This was the last movie
she did before her successful 1970s T.V. show.  Another star of the MARY TYLER
MOORE SHOW, Edward Asner, who played Lou Grant on that show, was also in this

Artist for this movie, singing a song from it, is #21.  Really Rockin' In
Boston mentioned this "theme."

The EJ'S & Co. mentioned a few other potential themes, including:
- a British invasion theme: The Beatles, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Billy J.
  Kramer with The Dakotas, The Rolling Stones, and Cream
- Ronnie Hawkins' song "Forty Days" had been an R&B hit for Chuck Berry on the
  Chess label in 1952, and Hawkins assembled The Band, while The Moonglows
  recorded for Chess
- There are a few Motown stars:  Marvin Gaye, The Miracles, and The Supremes
- Randazzo, Lymon, Little Richard, and Berry appeared in the 1957 film MISTER
- Finally, you've got some alliterative titles and artists: "Dance, Dance,
  Dance," "Sunday Sun," "Good Golly, Miss Molly," "Goody Goody," and "See Saw";
  and The Beach Boys, The Famous Flames

Team Teitelbaum noted the "Mary & Flo Club" (songs #07 & 25).  (This was done
intentionally when I realized I'd be using both artists.)

Mike Weaver noted that many of these songs were performed by their authors or
part of the writing team.

After I put together this quiz, I realized that three consecutive songs, #03,
#04, and #05 are either about trains or are represented by a lyrics snippet
about trains.  Another thing I noticed is that three of the biggest artists of
the GOLQ era as well as all-time are in this quiz with songs that were part of
two-sided hits.  In each case, the song featured here was the lower-charting
and/or the lesser-known song.  Notice, though, that I'm not saying that all
three were B sides because one was originally intended to be the A side.  Also,
both songs from 1967 that are in this GOLQ were banned from Washington, DC,
radio stations in 1967.

GOLQ361's mean score was 428.46, and the median was 480.

Unfortunately, for the second month in a row, the GOLQ Results and Answer Key
must report the death of a one-time participant.  John Fox, who participated
under both his real name and the name Stuck in the 60s, died in November 2016,
as posted on his Facebook page.  I got to meet John and hear him perform his
oldies show at a restaurant after I called him when I was in Cincinnati to
attend a convention in 2013.  Although he didn't participate all of the time,
his entries were always enjoyable to read and will be missed.

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

After six hours of school I had enough for the day
I hit the radio dial and turn it up all the way
#01) Beach Boys, The: "Dance, Dance, Dance" (1964/65) [8] {n/c}

This is one of the songs they performed in T.A.M.I. SHOW.

I used to think of no one else but you were just the same
You didn't even think of me as someone with a name
Did you mean to break my heart and watch me die
Tell me why
#02) Beatles, The: "What Goes On" (1966) [81] {-}

Ringo Starr appeared in THE LAST WALTZ.  However, he only appeared at the end,
as part of a finale performance of Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released", onstage
with the other featured artists.  I chose this song because it is one of four
GOLQ-era charting Beatles records on which Ringo sang lead and the only one for
which he got a songwriting credit, along with John Lennon and Paul McCartney.
The others on which he sang lead are "Matchbox" (Beatles cover) "Act Naturally"
(Beatles cover), and "Yellow Submarine" (Lennon, McCartney).

Team Teitelbaum--On the UK RUBBER SOUL LP; in the US, the B-side of "Nowhere
Man," and on the US-only YESTERDAY AND TODAY LP.  Primitive by mid-'60s Beatles
standards, as it was a very early Lennon-McCartney composition from Quarrymen
days.  They'd recorded it first in 1963, but that version was unused and hasn't
surfaced.  Ringo got co-writer credit (he claimed his contribution was writing
"about 5 words").

Engineer would see him sittin' in the shade
Strummin' with the rhythm that the drivers made
#03) Berry, Chuck: "Johnny B. Goode" (1958) [8] {2}

This is one of the songs he sang in T.A.M.I. SHOW (but not ROCK, ROCK, ROCK!).
Although the theme song said that he would sing both "Maybellene" and
"Memphis," two songs of his that had renewed popularity due to recent remake
hits by Johnny Rivers, he did not perform the latter song.

Delphi Trivia Club--(Charles Edward Anderson) Chuck Berry announced on his 90th
birthday that his first new studio album since 1979, entitled CHUCK, will be
released in 2017.  It also features his children, Charles Berry Jr. and Ingrid,
on guitar and harmonica, with songs "covering the spectrum from hard-driving
rockers to soulful thought-provoking time capsules of a life's work" and
dedicated to Themetta, his wife of 68 years.

Washington, DC
Or Richmond, Virginia, too
#04) Brown, James, and The Famous Flames: "Night Train" (1962) [35] {5}

This is one of the songs they performed in T.A.M.I. SHOW.  And I do mean
"they".  I took off two points for omitting The Famous Flames because not only
did they get label credit on this song, they were a big part of the performance
in this show.  Those who know me know that I'm not much of a fan of the type of
funky r&b that James Brown often did.  But my most enduring and endearing
memory of this movie is the James Brown and the Famous Flames performance.  It
opened my eyes to a lot more r&b, at least the not-so-funky type.
Unfortunately, some of the kids sitting near me in the movie theater, located
about a mile from the boundary of Washington, DC, made some racist remarks.
The other black performers in this movie were Chuck Berry, whose sound was more
like a white combo like the British Invasion groups and the Beach Boys, and
Motown artists, whose sound was carefully produced to appeal to white audiences
as well as black ones.

You said no strings could secure you at the station
Platform ticket, restless diesels, goodbye windows
I walked into such a sad time at the station
As I walked out felt my own need just beginning
#05) Cream: "White Room" (1968) [6] {-}

Group member Eric Clapton performed in THE LAST WALTZ, but not this song.

Kids in the park
Don't take long before I'm laughin' along with them
Almost makes me think those times can come again
Gets me feelin' good and yet bad at the same time
#06) Diamond, Neil: "Sunday Sun" (1968) [68] {-}

Believe it or not, he performed in THE LAST WALTZ.  He sang the song "Dry Your
Eyes" from what was then his most recent album, BEAUTIFUL NOISE, which was
produced by Robbie Robertson.  Robertson co-write "Dry Your Eyes" with Diamond.

Contrary to popular belief, Neil Diamond isn't necessarily my favorite singer
at times.  As a big fan of music from 1955-1985, I have a lot of favorites from
that time period, including Paul Simon, Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits, Gordon
Lightfoot, Billy Joel, Joe South, and others.  However, Neil Diamond is my
favorite singer with the first name of Neil, with Neil Sedaka in second place.
Another singer named Neil is in this quiz.  I have mixed feelings about him and
his music, which I'll note when I get to him all the way down at #T2.  Although
Sedaka is not in this quiz, a song co-written by his long-time songwriting
partner Howard Greenfield is.

The word "bad" in the last line should have been "sad."  I chose this song
because it was the only one by him from the GOLQ era that hadn't been used in a
GOLQ before, except for his remake of the U.S. Bonds song "New Orleans."

Oh, well, there's Flo on my left arm
And there's Mary on my right
#07) Dion: "The Wanderer" (1961) [2] {-}

According to the Wikipedia entry for ROCK, ROCK, ROCK!, he performed this song
with the Belmonts in this movie.  However, it was not a hit for him until
several years later.  According to the Wikipedia entry for this song, it does
not date back that far.  Perhaps the song listing for the movie is incorrect.

Everybody must get stoned
#08) Dylan, Bob: "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" (1966) [2] {-}

If I had known that lyrics like these could win a Nobel Prize for literature,
maybe I would have tried my hand at it!  Of course, Dylan wrote a lot more
profound lyrics than this line.

Although Dylan agreed to appear in THE LAST WALTZ, he originally did not want
his performance filmed because he was afraid it would interfere with his own
film project, RENALDO AND CLARE.  The release of THE LAST WALTZ was thus
delayed so it would not interfere with the release of Dylan's project.

And I just love you
Love you darlin'
Like a baby boy loves his toy
#09) Gaye, Marvin "Pride and Joy" (1963) [10] {2}

This is one of the songs he sang in T.A.M.I. SHOW.  He was backed by Darlene
Love and the Blossoms, who were regularly appearing on the SHINDIG! T.V. show
at the time.

You let me come in
When your "mamer" ain't there
#10) Gerry and The Pacemakers: "I Like It" (1964) [17] {n/c}

This is one of the songs they sang in T.A.M.I. SHOW.  Among the others they did
was an exchange of versions of "Maybellene" with Chuck Berry.

Oh I gotta know dear
Because I can't waste my time
Just a-waitin' on your line
When I can find another guy
#11) Gore, Lesley: "Hey Now" (1964) [76] {n/c}

This is one of the songs she sang in T.A.M.I. SHOW.

I've done called up a gypsy woman on the telephone
I'm gonna send out a worldwide hoo-doo
That'll be the very thing that'll suit you
#12) Hawkins, Ronnie: "Forty Days" (1959) [45] {-}

He performed in THE LAST WALTZ but did not do this song.

Mike Weaver--In the case of "Forty Days" the original 45 credited Hawkins and
"Jacqueline Magill" (whom I no nothing about).  I don't recall the legal
details, but credit was eventually changed to Chuck Berry because it was
virtually identical to his 1955 song "Thirty Days."

The EJ'S & Co. and Team Teitelbaum also mentioned the "Thirty Days" connection.

Some are flyin'
And some are drivin'
From Liverpool to Tennessee
#13) Jan & Dean: "(Here They Come) From All Over The World" (1965) [56] {-}

This was the theme song for T.A.M.I. SHOW and was played over the opening
credits.  Jan & Dean were the co-hosts of the concerts.

Now why ain't ya playin' outside
I'm askin' you
You can't fool me
'Cause I'm gonna know if you hide
And try to peek
#14) Billy J. Kramer With The Dakotas: "Little Children" (1964) [7] {n/c}

This is one of the songs they performed in T.A.M.I. SHOW.  It was written by
J. Leslie McFarland and Mort Shuman, who had gone to England to work after he
split from his long-time songwriting partner Doc Pomus.

When you're rockin' and a-rollin'
Can't hear your mama call
#15) Little Richard: "Good Golly, Miss Molly" (1958) [10] {4}

Little Richard performed "Long Tall Sally" and "Tutti-Frutti" in DON'T KNOCK
THE ROCK.  I chose this song instead in order to get a song from an
underrepresented time period.

So you met someone
And now you know how it feels
#16) Lymon, Frankie, and The Teenagers: "Goody Goody" (1957) [20] {-}

As with Little Richard, I chose a song other than one of the ones he performed
in ROCK, ROCK, ROCK! to get another song from an underrepresented time period.
For many years, I thought this recording was by a female artist, possibly
LaVern Baker.  Maybe it's because I thought for many years that her song
"Jim Dandy" was done by a male artist.

Mike Weaver--I have seen copies of this record both with and without "and His
Teenagers."  Whitburn seems to indicate the Teenagers credit.

I gave credit for either version of the artist name.

You take a walk by the sea (walk by the sea)
Two hearts on a tree (two hearts on a tree)
And you've got a little kindness
Yeah Yeah
#17) Miracles, The: "That's What Love Is Made Of" (1964) [35] {n/c}

This is one of the songs they performed in T.A.M.I. SHOW.  They were not
mentioned in the theme song.  One other artist who was not mentioned in the
song and also is not in this quiz is the Barbarians.  They were still more than
a year away from their first hit, "Are You A Boy Or Are You A Girl," and their
other hit "Moulty," and they didn't perform either of these songs.  The only
song they did was "Hey Little Bird."  I didn't use them in this quiz because
their part of the alphabet was already crowded.

Mike Weaver pointed out that the last word in the third line is "gladness."

Monday, it's a-huggin' and a-kissin'
Tuesday, somethin' I've been missin'
#18) Moonglows, The: "See Saw" (1956) [25] {6}

This is not one of the songs they performed in ROCK, ROCK, ROCK!, although it's
from the same year as the movie.

Do you remember when
We used to sing
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la dee-da
Just like that
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la dee-da
#19) Morrison, Van: "Brown Eyed Girl" (1967) [10] {-}

This is not one of the songs he performed in THE LAST WALTZ.  It was his only
charting single of the GOLQ era as a solo artist, although he had multiple ones
as the lead singer of Them.

In the Washington, DC, area in the late summer of 1967, there were two national
hits that we didn't hear on our local Top 40 stations--"Let It Out (Let It All
Hang Out)" by the Hombres and this one.  I've never cared for the Hombres'
song, but I have always loved "Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison.  I read a few
years ago that many people consider "Brown Eyed Girl" to be the most overplayed
oldie and can't stand to hear it any more.  I can never get enough of it, to
make up for all the times I didn't get to hear it that summer almost 50 years
ago.  It was the segment, "Making love in the green grass/behind the stadium,"
that got it banned.  I can imagine what got the Hombres' song banned, although
at the age of 15, I didn't understand what that meant.

Adrift in a world of my own
I play the game
But to my real shame
You've left me to dream all alone
#20) Platters, The: "The Great Pretender" (1955/56) [1] {1}

This is one of the songs they performed in ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK.  DEC &
Friends also mentioned a version of this song by Roy Orbison, which would have
fit alphabetically if it had charted.

Sittin' on the back porch
All by myself
Along came Mary Jane
And I'm with somebody else
#21) Presley, Elvis: "Rubberneckin'" (1969/70) [6] {-}

As noted earlier, this is from his last movie, CHANGE OF HABIT, also starring
Mary Tyler Moore.  In an early version of this GOLQ, I referred to her as a
non-musical entertainer, but then I remembered that she did some numbers with
Dick Van Dyke when she co-starred on his sitcom, including "A Fine Musician."
She also appeared in at least one movie musical, THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE.
When I was down to needing just one more song, I decided to choose one of
Elvis' movie songs.  When I saw that 1969 was unrepresented except for a tie-
breaker, I decided to see if this movie produced any charting songs and came up
with this one.

This was the B-side of "Don't Cry Daddy."  At the time this one came out,
Billboard was listing two-sided hits together at the same position.  "Don't Cry
Daddy" was the song from this single that I usually heard on the radio, and I
think that if Billboard had been listing the two sides separately then,
"Rubberneckin'" would have peaked much lower than "Don't Cry Daddy."  I have
always preferred "Rubberneckin'" over its A-side and was happy to see it return
to popularity in a remixed version by Paul Oakenfold in 2003.  But while it was
a hit in several places outside the U.S., it only reached #94 on the Billboard
Hot 100.  The remixed version appears on the album ELVIS: 2ND TO NONE.

I make you laugh when you're blue
That way I can be close to you
From the start
I play the part
#22) Randazzo, Teddy: "The Way Of A Clown" (1960) [44] {-}

This is not one of the songs he performed in ROCK, ROCK, ROCK!, again because I
wanted something from an underrepresented time period.  Some of his songs in
this movie were done with the group the Three Chuckles, of which he was a

This song was written by two writers normally associated with different
co-writers--Barry Mann and Howard Greenfield.  Part of the melody is based on
"Vesti La Giubba" from the Leoncavallo opera "Pagliacci," also known as, "We
ran out of Rice Krispies."  In 1969, Kellogg's produced some Rice Krispies
commercials featuring words about the cereal set to famous opera music,
including this one.  Teddy Randazzo isn't even the only artist in this GOLQ to
ever have a hit record with the title "The [something] Of A Clown" with a
Pagliacci connection!  The other was the Miracles' 1970 hit "The Tears Of A
Clown," which was first released on an album by them in 1967.

Hey Mister can you tell me
Where a man might find a bed
He just grinned and shook my hand
"No" was all he said
#23) Jaime Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, Garth Hudson, Levon
      Helm: "The Weight" (1968) [63] {-}

Mike Weaver--The long artist credit on #23 was used prior to the group adapting
the name "The Band" but when I hear it on the radio, it seems that is how it is

Team Teitelbaum, NAVAIRHEADS, and Delphi Trivia Club also noted that this was
really The Band.  This is one of the songs they performed at the actual concert
for THE LAST WALTZ, but a version recorded with the Staples Singers appears in
the movie.  In addition to their original recording, three other versions of
this charted in 1968-1969:

Jackie DeShannon - #55 in 1968 (the first version I ever heard of this song)
Aretha Franklin - #19 in 1969 (#3 r&b)
Diana Ross & the Supremes & the Temptations - #46 in 1969 (#33 r&b)

Some entries listed Diana Ross, et al, as the artist.  This was an incorrect
answer because it doesn't fit alphabetically (all entries that used this artist
also got #24 correct), plus the Supremes were ineligible here because another
song of theirs is in the quiz.  Plus, in the third line above, "shook my hand"
is sung by the Temptations as "shook his head" (which is actually more
logical).  Aretha Franklin and Jackie DeShannon also have their own variations,
primarily to make them gender neutral or from a female perspective.  There were
also some entries that gave The Band as the artist, despite not fitting
alphabetically.  I actually had this version of this song selected for GOLQ290,
slotted where The Band would go alphabetically.  After I learned how the artist
name was shown on the record, I decided to replace it with a song by the
Animals instead of doing extensive renumbering.  I had hoped since then to be
able to use it in its right spot, and the time had finally come.

I'll satisfy your every need (your every need)
And now I know you will satisfy me
#24) Rolling Stones, The: "Let's Spend The Night Together" (1967) [55] {-}

This is not one of the songs they performed in T.A.M.I. SHOW because I already
had enough songs from that time period in this quiz.  Plus, with no songs that
were #1 in February in 1957, 1962, or 1967 qualifying under one of the mini-
themes, I decided to choose a song that coulda, shoulda, woulda been #1 or very
close to it in February 1967.  Radio stations banned this song because of its
suggestive lyrics, but because they wanted a new Rolling Stones hit single,
many of them played the B-side, "Ruby Tuesday," instead.  This propelled that
B-side to #1 for the week of March 4, 1967.  Perhaps if "Let's Spend The Night
Together" hadn't been banned, it would have gone to #1 even faster, reaching
that spot in February.  Some stations somewhere must have still played "Let's
Spend The Night Together" to have allowed it to chart on the Hot 100.  In the
Washington, DC, area, radio stations did start to play this song when it came
out in January but then pulled it.  Some of them, including WPGC, played "Ruby
Tuesday" instead.  But WEAM even refused to play "Ruby Tuesday."

Team Teitelbaum--When performed on the ED SULLIVAN SHOW in January 1967, they
were forced to modify the lyrics to the chaster "Let's Spend Some Time
Together."  Jagger rolls his eyes when singing that line, as to signal his
displeasure at this censorship!

Ronnie Wood, who joined the group in 1975, appeared in the finale of THE LAST
WALTZ with Ringo and the others.

How can Mary tell me what to do
When she lost her love so true
And Flo she don't know
'Cause the boy she loves is a Romeo
#25) Supremes, The: "Back In My Arms Again" (1965) [1] {1}

This is not one of the songs they performed in TAMI SHOW.  I chose this one
because I always thought it was an interesting coincidence that "The Wanderer,"
which came out before the Supremes became famous, refers to Mary and Flo, just
like lead singer Diana Ross refers to her backup singers Mary Wilson and
Florence "Flo" Ballard in this song.


Now when my baby's dancin'
She's as tall as a clown
If she ever fell
She'd have to fall out of town
#T1) Haley, Bill, and his Comets: "Don't Knock The Rock" (1956) [-] {-}

Mike Weaver--T1 was sung in the opening credits for the film.  It also song in
the film by Alan Dale in a much tamer version that does not contain the cited

Ten silver saxes
A bass with a bow
The drummer relaxes
And waits between shows
#T2) Young, Neil, with Crazy Horse: "Cinnamon Girl" (released 1969, charted
       1970) [55] {-}

Neil Young performed in THE LAST WALTZ, although he did not sing this song.
Like most members of The Band, he is Canadian.

Team Teitelbaum--From his 1969 LP "EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS IS NOWHERE, recorded
with backing band Crazy Horse.  It was then released as a single in 1970.  High
harmonies are by Crazy Horse guitarist Danny Whitten.

A version by the Gentrys' reached #52 in the same year.  This is a "hit vs.
hip" (or "hip vs. hit") song.  I explained this concept in GOLQ324.  The Neil
Young original is the "hip" version, while the Gentrys' version is the "hit"
one.  Neil Young is involved in two other "hip vs. hit" cases.  His song "After
The Gold Rush" is the "hip" version, while the one by Prelude is the "hit"
version.  In the other situation, he is part of the "hit" version, as the lead
singer on the Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young version of "Woodstock." Fellow
Canadian and fellow performer in THE LAST WALTZ Joni Mitchell has the "hip"
version, with another "hit" version being by Matthews Southern Comfort.

While I am not as big of a Neil Young fan as I am for Neil Sedaka and Neil
Diamond, this is one of my favorite songs by him.  I also enjoy the Gentrys
version, which I heard years before I heard Neil Young's.  In fact, the first
time I ever heard it, on WEAM in March 1970, the disc jockey said it was
written by Neil Diamond.  I got excited about learning of a new song of his
that I didn't know before.  Musically, it sounded like his type of song,
although I wasn't so sure about the lyrics.  The Gentrys were from Memphis,
where Neil Diamond did some recording in 1969.  Other Memphis-based artists,
including The Box Tops ("Ain't No Way") and Elvis Presley ("And The Grass Won't
Pay No Mind") had released fairly unknown songs of his around that time, so the
Gentrys doing the same was not so farfetched.  It was somewhat of a letdown
when I saw the 45 in a store and saw the Neil Young songwriting credit.  But it
didn't ruin my love for this song.

Team Asia also mentioned a cover by John Entwistle and supplied a YouTube link
for it:

One final word about GOLQ361 in general:

All of the recordings used in this GOLQ are available on YouTube as of now,
with the likely exception of "What Goes On" in its released form.  (Most
Beatles songs in their released form are not available in the U.S. on YouTube.
"What Goes On" and "Hey Jude," used in GOLQ361 are available in another service
I use, Google Play, as are several other Beatles songs I've searched for
there.)  Most of the other versions of them and other songs mentioned here are
also available there, including the Rice Krispies commercial with the
"Pagliacci" song, the Rolling Stones doing both "Ruby Tuesday" and "Let's Spend
Some Time Together" on THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW, and some individual performances
from T.A.M.I. SHOW and THE LAST WALTZ (and possibly the other movies
represented here, although I haven't searched for them).  I have not included
links to them because such links sometimes tend to disappear, plus I now mainly
access on devices other than the desktop computer I use for my GOLQ work.
Therefore, I can't easily transfer the direct links to this document.  I found
all of the songs I checked by using the YouTube search feature.


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.

In any GOLQ in which one of the tie-breakers did as well as or better than 11
regular songs, there had to have been surprises, but this one really didn't
have any.  "Cinnamon Girl" is a reasonably well-known classic rock song with
multiple reasonably well-known covers.  This helped Young win the battle of the
Neils over Diamond, for whom I deliberately chose an obscure song.  But Neil
Diamond, "The Jewish Elvis," won the battle of the Elvises, over Presley, as
they filled the last two regular song rankings, just above the other tie-
breaker.  Even the first six songs that ranked at or just below "Cinnamon Girl"
were identified by almost every entry.  The first eight songs listed below were
at least partially identified by every entry.
