RESULTS & ANSWER KEY for Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz #435 (GOLQ435)

Well folks, it turns out this quiz was much more difficult than intended.  The
"entropy" song selection process has a number of faults, not the least of which
is a likelihood that there will be limited alphabetic artist diversity.  Such was
the case here; there were 6 "S" artist names at the end.  My design was to have 
20 songs that placed in the top 40, some of the resulting tunes were pretty 
obscure.  I was reminded by Team Teitelbaum that back in the GOLQ formative years
that GOLQ 37 (authored by GOLQ pioneer Jamie Lubin) featured songs entirely 
selected from top 5 charted songs.  It proved to be very difficult.  (For amusement, 
you may want to go back and take that quiz).

AI may take over the world, but I won't let it author my GOLQ!

Entropy can only be overcome by the input of energy.  "Really Rockin' In Boston" 
and 'The Village Idiots' proved they could generate 1.21 jigawatts and delivered 
perfect scores.  Excellent scores were also delivered by 'Delphi Trivia Club', 
"The EJ'S & Co", and "Tri State Trivia".

For the tie-breakers, I was hopeful of getting some warmer weather here in 
North-Eastern Ohio by selecting two tunes with "Summer" in the title.  My effort
was not highly successful.

I have created a playlist of all the songs on the quiz:
https://www.youtube.com/@MrOldtunes1/playlists.  It includes
four versions of "Heart and Soul".

Thanks to everyone that participated.

     GOLDEN OLDIES LYRICS QUIZ #435 ANSWERS:
Answers are in the form:

    #number) Artist: "Title" (chart year) [peak Pop] {peak R&B} <xxx>...<yyy>

where:
    "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.

#03) Checker, Chubby, (with Dee Dee Sharp): "Slow Twistin'" (1962) [3] {3} <146>

Dee Dee Sharp's inclusion in the answer.

About twelve o'clock
Everything get hot
Up steps old John
We started clapping
And he started singing
This sweet little country song
#04) Domino, Fats: "Bo Weevil" (1956) [35] {5} <79>

When rain has hung the leaves with tears
I want you near, to kill my fears
To help me to leave all my blues behind
Standing in your heart is where I want to be

It was a sunny day
#08) Fontane Sisters, The:  "Playmates" (1955) [13] {-}

#09) Franklin, Aretha: "Think" (1968) [7] {1} <73><309>

I know you're walking down a lonesome road
And your heart is carrying a heavy load

Oh, and your whole world's caving in (Whole world, caving in)
#10) Gaye, Marvin: "That's The Way Love Is" (1969) [7] {2} <109><304>

With a dollars worth of beans
A new pair of jeans
Got a woman to cook and wash
...and things
#11) Hayes, Bill: "Wringle, Wrangle" (1957) [33] {-} <339>

Song from "Westward Ho The Wagons" and sung by Fess Parker.
Parkers version did considerably better in the charts (#12).

As an aside, I actually met Fess Parker in the early 60's;
he was visiting a family that lived down the street from us.
He seems to have been a pretty pleasant guy, especially
dealing with all the neighborhood folks who showed up to get
a glimpse of him and an autograph.  By the way, he drank
'Budweiser'.

Oh, but your lips were thrilling
Much too thrilling
Never before were mine
So strangely willing
#12) Jan & Dean: "Heart And Soul" (1961) [25]

A couple of teams mentioned that they were not familiar with this
version, but it was released at nearly the same time as the
the Cleftones' version that reached #12.  There have been 
at least 2 other popular versions of this song since it came
out in 1938.

I'll have your second fiddle
Returned to you today
'Cause baby, that's one instrument
I never learned to play
#13) Lee, Brenda: "Ride, Ride, Ride" (1967) [37] {-}

Lynn Anderson scored on the Country chart with this, #36
also in 1967.

If you love her then you must send her
Somewhere where she's never been before
Worn out phrases and longin' gazes
Won't get you where you want to go
#14) Mamas & The Papas, The: "Words Of Love" (1966/67) [5] {-} <73><183><250>

You know that's against the rules
Now you will see (oooh yeah) just how I felt
Better believe it baby
You beat me to the punch honey
But you hit me below the belt
#15) Mel and Tim: "Backfield In Motion" (1969/70) [10] {3} <31><375>

Stop the game (stop the game)
you've got too much to lose (too much to lose)
If you stop me again
That's when we might end
So please don't refuse
#16) 1910 Fruitgum Co.: "1, 2, 3, Red Light" (1968) [5] {-} <37><314>

My heart cries out more baby
I love you so much
I wish that there was more of you to touch
#17) ? (Question Mark) & The Mysterians: "Can't Get Enough Of You, Baby"
      (1967) [56] {-} <90>

When he says to me
Baby I Love you
I just know 
Every word is true
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
He's the boy that I love
And I told him I do
#18) Raindrops, The: "That Boy John" (1963/64) [64] {n/c} <67><325>

Release date was October of 1963. It is pure speculation of course,
but it may have done better had some folks not associated it with
the assassination of President Kennedy the following month.

We had a love, a love,
A love you don't find every day
So don't, don't, don't
Don't let it slip away
#19) Righteous Brothers, The: "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'"
      (1964/65) [1] {3} <97><215><310><380>

Why don't they take the time to understand
She's looking for a love she's never found?
And it's only 'cause she's lonely 
#20) Sedaka, Neil: "Bad Girl" (1963/64) [33] {-} <352>

(Seeking truth and justice)
I'm just roaming around
(Seeking truth and justice)
And I'll never get home again
#21) Shacklefords, The: "Stranger In Your Town" (1963) [70] {-}

Lightning flashed across the sky
The night he taught me how to fly
The sun came up and then I found
Too soon he let his lady down
#22) Sinatra, Nancy, & Lee Hazlewood: "Lady Bird" (1967) [20] {-} <112><277>

I'd give up a palace if I were a king
It's more than a palace, it's my everything
There's a queen waiting there with a silvery crown
#23) Smith,Somethin', & the Redheads: "In A Shanty In Old Shanty Town"(1956) [27] {-}

Now that you've gone
I'd be a fool to go on and on
Who'd care, no one would cry
If I should live or die
#24) Sonny & Cher: "What Now My Love" (1966) [14] {-} <78><222>

And all your promises (Baby, baby)
Of a love forever more (Baby, baby, ooh, baby, baby)
#25) Supremes, The: "Where Did Our Love Go" (1964) [1] {n/c} <67><189><290>

From San Francisco to Philly PA
The kids from Baltimore and Washington
Have lots of fun in the summer sun
So until school starts in the fall
Vacation's here and we're having a ball
#T1) Pixies Three: "It's Summer Time U.S.A." (1964) [116] {n/c}

All the while you're gone
I'll be remembering
Every little thing 
We used to do
Each and every dream
My Heart will try to bring
Back a little memory of you
#T2) Royalettes: "Blue Summer" (1964) [121] {-}
