4. Hi group. I had a number 4 U.S. chart hit in 1957 with a song called "Rainbow". I was born in Liverpool, England in 1934. Give me credit here. This was before British performers tended to have hits in the U.S. But, who am I?
    Suzi Miller

5. Hey, over here! Don't overlook The Muppets. Our first movie included a great rainbow song, "Rainbow Connection". The song was even nominated for an Academy Award in 1979. And, I sang it. Who am I?

6. Frankie Avalon on the line! I had a number one hit in 1959 with "Why". Happily, in the same year I had a hit with "Swinging On a Rainbow". What is interesting about these two hits charting in the same year?
    The two songs were released on different labels.
    'Swinging On a Rainbow is the same tune as 'Why?', only with different lyrics.
    The number 1 song charted on Jan. 1, 1959, the number 39 song charted on Dec. 31 of 1959.
    'Swinging On a Rainbow' was the flip side of 'Why?'

    Auntie Em
    Uncle Henry
