RESULTS & ANSWER KEY for Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz #400 (GOLQ400)

Congratulations to The Coasters, James White, Delphi Trivia Club, EJs and Co.,
Village Idiots, and Will McCorry, all of whom tied for first with perfect
scores. Barry Silk identified all but one tie-breaker.

The Coasters were the first to submit a perfect score.

The theme was Romantic Pairings or Significant Others, a theme figured out by
all the high scoring teams. A few months ago, I somehow first became familiar
with the Dusty-Norma Tanega relationship and from that a theme was born. The
pairings of solo artists was pretty straight-forward, it got a little tricky
when they involved an artist within a group. The triad was intended as David
Crosby (Byrds), Joni Mitchell, Graham Nash (Hollies). The Coasters were also
the first team to identify all the pairings and triad correctly, as did the
Village Idiots. The average score was 415.0

And the Puzzler turned out to be a tribute to Little Richard, the solution is
below. Bob may have consulted with one of Dionne Warwick's psychic friends for
that theme. I guess that's what friends are for.

On a sad note, we lost a long-time participant this past month when Bonnie
Teitelbaum passed away. While Howard may be the more familiar name, Bonnie
first submitted a solo entry to GOLQ #10 and had been a steady participant ever
since. On a brighter note, we welcome the return appearances of Barry Silk and
from Quad States Trivia, two familiar names from my early GOLQ days, Mike
Gessner and Dino DiNardo.

Thanks to everyone who entered. GOLQ #401 has been posted. I will post GOLQ
#500 in Sept. 2028. Bob is already working on the Puzzler for it.

Answers are in the form:

    #number) Artist: "Title" (chart year) [peak Pop] {peak R&B} <xxx>...<yyy>
    "peak Pop" = Peak position achieved on the weekly Billboard Pop chart.
    "peak R&B" = Peak position on the weekly Billboard Rhythm & Blues chart.
        (Billboard didn't publish an R&B chart between 11/30/63 and 1/23/65,
        so recordings in that interval show peak R&B of {n/c} ("no chart").)
    "xxx",...,"yyy" = prior GOLQ(s) in which the song appeared, if any.

             Due 5:00 p.m. EDT (GMT-5) on Sunday, May 31, 2020

Like I love you
Nobody could
Ah, nobody could
But when you close your
Your a-arms around me
#01) Ann-Margret: "It Do Me So Good" (1961) [97] {-} <244>
QM: Match #16. Her first charted single was "I Just Don't Understand". That
title is also the entire contents of a telegram she sent Elvis when he started
being distant a few months after the Viva Las Vegas shoot. She eventually
married another GOLQ artist, Roger Smith.

Searching for my double, looking for
Complete evaporation to the core
Though I tried and failed at finding any door
I must of thought that there was nothing more
#02) Baez, Joan: "Love Is Just A Four-Letter Word" (1969) [86] {-} <255>
QM: Match #6. When they first met in person, Joan was a well-known singer, soon
to be on the cover of Time. Bob was relatively unknown. From the David Hadju
book "Positively 4th Street", Joan was the last singer at a NY folk club event
when Bob followed her out the door and asked her to listen to one of his songs
right there in the street. She obliged, and then turned to leave with her
younger sister, Mimi. Bob then asked Mimi to go to a party with him, but Joan
quickly said no, as Mimi was not yet sixteen. Joan later told Mimi she didn't
want her to speak to him again.

I watched the apples falling one by one
And I recall
The moment of them all
The day I kissed your cheek and you were gone
#03) Bee Gees, The: "First Of May" (1969) [37] {-} <134><305>
QM: Match #13. In 2002, on the British TV special "An Audience With Lulu",
Maurice Gibb made a surprise appearance. The two performed a duet of First of
May that is still fondly remembered by their fans. Maurice would pass away the
following year.

I'm ready to go anywhere
I'm ready for to fade
#04) Byrds, The: "Mr. Tambourine Man" (1965) [1] {-} <104><231>
QM: Triad with #09 and #T1. This just wasn't David Crosby's quiz. First, his
song "Triad" was a factor in his being fired by the Byrds. His relationship
with Joni Mitchell, producing her first album, ended with Joni writing #T1
about him. In fact, there were a few other songs written by members of CS&N
that were based on their romantic relationships and/or the fallout from them.
And there were a few more permutations of CS&N members and their relationships
that could have been included in this quiz.

You've found a world
That's just begun
Who's gonna say
Your day's too long
Or right from wrong
Who leads you on
#05) Match #21. Cher: "Where Do You Go" (1965) [25] {-} <->
QM: One of two Sonny Bono-penned songs from her second solo album, the other
being Bang, Bang.

Love and only love it can't be denied
No matter what you think about it
You just won't be able to do without it
Take a tip from one who's tried
#06) Match #02. Dylan, Bob: "I Threw It All Away" (1969) [85] {-} <->
QM: From the Hadju book, months after their initial encounter, Bob again met
Joan at a party after a folk singing event. And Bob again played one of his
songs for her, With God On Our Side. By the time he was finished, Joan had
become a believer. Weeks later, she would make a surprise appearance at the
Monterey Folk Festival to introduce Bob singing that song. And the relationship

I want you to wear my orange sweater
The beat-up sweater with the high school letter
Gonna make a chain of paper clips
To chain us together while I kiss your lips
#07) Fisher, Eddie: "Dungaree Doll" (1955/56) [7] {-} <66><259>
QM: Match #17. It was a big scandal when Eddie divorced Debbie to marry her
best friend, Elizabeth Taylor. Eddie would see his NBC TV series canceled as a
result. His chart success deserted him as well, although he would sign a then-
record deal to appear in Las Vegas.

Manhattan's gone Latin
One note samba and La Bamba
And the girl from Ipanema
#08) Gorme, Eydie: "Can't Get Over (The Bossa Nova)" (1964) [87] {n/c} <296>
QM: Match #11. Eydie and Steve were just a simple married couple with no
apparent scandals.

By August, she was mine
#09) Hollies, The: "Bus Stop" (1966) [5] {-} <6><88><147><333>
QM: Triad with #03 and #T1. After Joni broke up with David, Graham Nash would
live with her for several years. The CSN&Y song "Our House" is based on their
home life together.

Heartaches are going to the inside
My tears are holding back
They're trying not to fall
My heart's out of the running
True love's scratched for another's sake
#10) Jones, George: "The Race Is On" (1965) [96] {-} <316>
QM: Match #25. After Johnny and June, there was George and Tammy as a country-
music power couple. Despite divorcing in 1975, they renamed a recording duo and
had three #1 songs on the C&W charts.

I know why you're blue
You finally found something
That your daddy won't buy for you
#11) Lawrence, Steve: "Poor Little Rich Girl" (1963) [27] {-} <210>
QM: Match #08. Sadly, Steve has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

I will wait for you
Til the sun falls down from the sky
What else can I do
Wait, will wait for you
#12) Longet, Claudine: "Meditation (Meditacao)" (1966) [98] {-} <78><363>
QM: Match #24. Claudine was the lead dancer in a Las Vegas show when Andy
stopped to help her with car trouble one night. Despite a 14-year age
difference, they would marry a year later. Close friends with Robert Kennedy,
they were in his hotel suite during his California primary victory speech. A
planned nightclub celebration afterwards became a death watch at the hospital.
Although later divorced, Andy would stand by her during her trial involving
Spider Sabich's death.

From crayons to perfume
#13) Lulu: "To Sir With Love" (1967) [1] {9} <13><164><344>
QM: Match #03. Lulu had major chart success in both the US and UK, but oddly
none of her UK Top 30 songs made the US Top 30 and vice versa. This song did
not even appear on the UK charts, being released as the B-side of her #11 Let's
Pretend. From the movie soundtrack, I prefer the Museum Outings Montage version
of this song.

Come on, take me by the hand
Tell me I'm your lover man
We'll have fun, just we two
You for me, me for you
#14) Lymon, Frankie, and The Teenagers: "I Want You To Be My Girl"
        (1956) [13] {3} <24><123>
QM: Match #15. From her autobiography, a 12-year-old Ronnie Bennett (#18) was a
huge fan of Frankie who, unknown to her, lived in the same neighborhood. Her
mother was a waitress, and in a strange coincidence, found herself serving a
then 13-year old Frankie a meatloaf sandwich. She convinced Frankie to attend
her daughter's thirteenth birthday party. Ronnie was in heaven waiting for the
big day. But that potential romance didn't blossom. Frankie, after he died,
would end up having three different women thinking they were married to him and
entitled to his estate, including #15 Zola Taylor of the Platters.

Goodbye to tender nights
Beside the silvery sea
I long to hold you near and kiss you just once more
But you were on the ship and I was on the shore
#15) Platters, The: "Harbor Lights" (1960) [8] {15} <58><178><338>
QM: Match #14. Zola's claim to being married to Frankie was not upheld in
court. Halle Berry played the role of Zola in the 1998 Frankie Lymon movie
named after his biggest hit.

See the girl with the red dress on
She can do the dog all night long
#16) Presley, Elvis, with The Jubilee Four And Carole Lombard Quartet:
        "What'd I Say" (1964) [21] {-} <->
QM: Match #01. From Viva Las Vegas, the movie that introduced him to
Ann-Margret. This was the rare Elvis movie where the female co-star was as
well-known and popular as he was.

Before you leave be sure you find
You want her love much more than mine
Cause I'll just say we've never met
#17) Reynolds, Debbie: "Am I That Easy To Forget" (1960) [25] {13} <268>
QM: Match #07. After Eddie, Debbie would have success with a Vegas act and
Broadway roles, and become friends again with Elizabeth Taylor. Her business
ventures would be less successful.

O-oh-oh, a-woh-oh-oh-oh
Have I ever told you
How good if feels to hold you
#18) Ronettes, The: "Baby, I Love You" (1963/64) [24] {n/c} <24><321>
QM: Match #23. #14 Frankie was a no-show at Ronnie's birthday party, but three
weeks later, he called on her at her house. According to her autobiography, he
was a bit drunk and out of control, and she hid in the bathroom until he left.
The Ronettes would later sign with Phil Spector's record label. Phil was
married at the time, but by the time this song was recorded, it was very
obvious Ronnie and Phil were spending a lot of time together.

When I start to open my mouth and sing a little song
Makes everything right that once seemed wrong
Even the cuckoo in the clock on the wall
Is just having himself a natural ball
#19) Sands, Tommy: "Sing Boy Sing" (1958) [24] {-} <123>
QM: Match #20. A one-off TV appearance as "The Singin' Idol" made Tommy an
overnight sensation, but his later movies and songs were not as successful. He
married Nancy Sinatra (#20) in 1960, but even that connection couldn't bring
him success. With the divorce in 1965, his career as a national entertainer
came to an abrupt end.

Yesterday it rained in Tennessee
I heard it also rained in Tallahassee
But not a drop fell on little old me
#20) Sinatra, Nancy: "Sugar Town" (1966) [5] {-} <56>
QM: Match #19. Nancy had no recording success on her father's Reprise label
while married to Tommy. But then Frank asked Lee Hazlewood's help in assisting
her career. The result, Lee performed a full makeover on Nancy, from her
appearance to her musical style. Starting with These Boots Are Made for
Walkin', major success followed.

I'll make that other cheek mine
And maybe the next guy
That don't wear a silk tie
He can walk by and say "Hi"
#21) Sonny: "Laugh At Me" (1965) [10] {-} <80><135><249>
QM: Match #05. Before they were big, Sonny & Cher would eat frequently at a
popular Hollywood restaurant. They would still go there after their initial
success, but now were dressed as rock stars. One time, another regular patron
started arguing with Sonny about his dress and Sonny argued back. Sonny was
asked to leave even though he wasn't the instigator. Sonny became upset that he
didn't just ignore the patron, and wrote this song about the incident. There
are several biblical references in the song, such as "the man upstairs". The
first line above alludes to ‘turning the other cheek'.

The only boy who could ever teach me
#22) Springfield, Dusty: "Son-of-a Preacher Man" (1968/69) [10] {-} <77><138>
QM: Match #T2. Sadly, Dusty's personal life had many problems. Years after her
60s success, she would collaborate with The Pet Shop Boys on a song that
reached #2 on the charts. Her relationship with Norma would end in the early

Have you ever seen that same girl cry?
The one she loves has said goodbye
And as she listens with tears in her eyes
He simply tells her
#23) Teddy Bears, The: "I Don't Need You Anymore" (1959) [98] {-} <->
QM: Match #18. Phil Spector's first big hit was with this group, but his best
known works were with his Philles Records. At the label's start, each record
produced would have "Phil and Annette" (his then wife) written into the wax
where the last track ended. But starting with "Baby I Love You", that practice
stopped. Annette soon discovered the affair with Ronnie and they would separate
before this song was released.

I've traveled far, the land and the sea
Beautiful places I happened to be
One little town I'll never forget
#24) Williams, Andy: "The Village Of St. Bernadette" (1959/60) [7] {-} <69>
QM: Match #12. Andy led a very charmed life. He also had twin nephews who were
recording artists. The 90s movie "Grace Of My Heart", highly recommended to
this group, was about Brill Building songwriting and featured several "faux"
performances of popular 60s artists. The nephews appeared as an Everly
Brothers-like duet and sang two very pretty songs that can be found on YouTube.
Here is one of them.

I love you both
And this will be
Pure H-E-double-L for me
#25) Wynette, Tammy: "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" (1968) [63] {-} <228>
QM: Match #10. Considered one of the greatest C&W singers, Tammy had major
medical issues throughout her life before she tragically died at age 55.


I followed with the sideshows to another town
And I found you in a trailer on the camping grounds
You were betting on some lover, you were shaking up the dice
And I thought I saw you cheating once or twice
#T1) Mitchell, Joni: "The Song About The Midway" (1969) [-] {-}
QM: Triad with #04 and #09. Long before Taylor became known for her songs about
past loves, Joni wrote this. Often described as the David Crosby kiss-off song,
even David tells a story of Joni singing this song directly to his face at a
party. Twice. Joni has said this song to be about her friend Leonard Cohen, but
the Crosby version of events is much more persistent.

Fly a red balloon on someone else's time
They will try to pull you down and change your mind
Break loose and find a new skyline
Syncopate your life and move against the grain
Don't you let them tell you that they're all the same
#T2) Tanega, Norma: "A Street That Rhymes With 6A.M." (1966) [-] {-}
QM: Match #22. This is two tie-breakers for Norma in a very short time,
somewhat unusual for essentially a one-hit wonder. During her time with Dusty,
Norma wrote a few songs that ended up as B-sides on Dusty's British singles and
album cuts.


The following table ranks the songs from most recognized to least recognized.
The first column indicates the average number of points scored on that song

The grid solution:

   "I am the innovator.  I am the originator.  I am the emancipator. I am
   the architect of rock and roll."

   "Awap bop a lup bop a wop bam boom, take 'em out!"

The quotes, of course, are from the one and only Little Richard, who washed
dishes at a Greyhound Bus Terminal before finding his first true calling
(his second was as a minister).

Two of the clue answers' columns combine to spell out LITTLE RICHARD.  A
second pair of columns combine to spell out TUTTI FRUTTI, his first Hot 100
single, which contains what Rolling Stone magazine once declared to be
the most inspired rock lyric ever recorded: "A wop bop alu bop, a wop bam
boom!".  A fifth column's letters rearrange to spell Little Richard's
hometown, MACON GA, and a sixth column's letters rearrange to spell his
musical instrument of note, the PIANO.  Finally, the letters in one of the
columns of the grid rearrange to suggest what you can do with your solved
puzzle:  RIP IT UP!

Some final notes:

In 2010, the U.S. Library of Congress National Recording Registry added
Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti" to its registry, claiming the "unique
vocalizing over the irresistible beat announced a new era in music".

James Brown was a friend and fan of Little Richard.  Brown came up with
the idea for his R&B hit "Please, Please, Please" because he used to
carry around an old, tattered napkin on which Little Richard had written
those words, and he was determined to make a song out of it.

Little Richard was Paul McCartney's schoolboy idol.  Paul celebrated his
last day of term at the Liverpool Institute by taking in his guitar,
climbing on a desk in the classroom, and singing "Long Tall Sally" and
"Tutti Frutti".

Keith Richards:  "The most exciting moment of my life was appearing on the
same stage as Little Richard."

Smokey Robinson:  "Little Richard is the beginning of rock 'n' roll."

George Harrison (at the Beatles' induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of
Fame):  "Thank you all very much, especially the rock 'n' rollers, and
Little Richard there (pointing to him) ... it was all his fault, really!"
