Music from 1969 Trivia Questions

1. "Crimson and Clover" was a number one hit for which American rock band?

From Quiz
Hits of 1969 - Part 2

Answer: Tommy James and the Shondells

"Crimson and Clover" (1969) was recorded by Tommy James and the Shondells and written by band members Peter Lucia Jr and Tommy James. It got to number one in the US, New Zealand and Canada. It can be found on their 1969 album of the same name. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts recorded a cover version in 1982 which got to number seven in the US.

2. The first UK number one hit of 1969 was "OB-LA-DI OB-LA-DA" by Marmalade, an original Beatles' song. Which Beatles' album was the original version on?

From Quiz That Was The Year That Was: Pop Music 1969

Answer: The Beatles (The White Album)

"Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" was written by Paul McCartney/John Lennon. It was number one for three weeks on the UK singles chart for Marmalade in 1969. It did not chart in the US. The original version "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" by The Beatles was on their 1968 album "The Beatles" (The White Album). "OB-LA-DI OB-LA-DA" was the first record by a Scottish group to top the UK singles chart. In 1966 Dean Ford and the Gaylords from Glasgow changed their name to The Marmalade then dropped the prefix The. Now in London with two bass guitar players they signed a record deal with CBS. They played at the Marquee Club where they supported Pink Floyd. After a number of flops CBS threatened to drop them. The group even turned down "Everlasting Love", which became a UK number one hit for Love Affair. They then recorded "Lovin' Things" which became their first hit and peaked at number six on the UK singles chart in 1968. Between 1968 and 1976 they had eight UK Top Ten hits. No UK chart appearances since then.

3. Two top ten songs from 1969, The Cuff Links' "Tracy" and The Archies' "Sugar, Sugar", were actually performed by studio musicians backing this person's lead vocals. Do you know who this person is?

From Quiz 1969 AM Radio Gold

Answer: Ron Dante

"Tracy" reached number nine and "Sugar, Sugar" went all the way to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 from 1969. Dante had experienced some previous success as a member of the group The Detergents, whose novelty song "Leader of the Laundromat", hit number 19 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1965. The song was a parody of the Shangri-Las' 1965 chart topper "Leader of the Pack". After his success in 1969 he went on to Co-Produce Barry Manilow's first nine albums.

4. At Number One was "Something In The Air", a one-hit wonder from Thunderclap Newman, a band featuring John "Speedy "Keen, Jimmy McCulloch (later of Wings), Andy "Thunderclap" Newman, and which guitar god?

From Quiz My Birthday Top Ten - 1969

Answer: Pete Townshend

Thunderclap Newman was formed to showcase the talents of John "Speedy" Keen, who had been Pete Townshend's chauffeur.

5. "Arizona" was a Number Ten solo effort by Mark Lindsay. Which popular American Sixties band was Mark the lead vocalist for at the time?

From Quiz One-Word US Top Forty Hits from 1969

Answer: Paul Revere and the Raiders

While Mark Lindsay was releasing solo singles his vocals could also be heard on Paul Revere and the Raiders' Top Twenty hit "Mr. Sun, Mr. Moon" in 1969. Keyboard player Paul Revere Dick was in the restaurant business and got to know Mark Lindsay when Mark worked at a bakery. In 1958 the pair formed a band they called The Downbeats. In 1960 the name was changed to Paul Revere and the Raiders. The following year they released their first US Top Forty single, "Like, Long Hair". The group went on to have several hits until Mark left in 1975 to be the A and R man for United Artists Records. Revere continued to perform with different vocalists. Rob Grill sang for The Grassroots. John "Jay" Traynor was the vocalist for Jay and the Americans when they formed. David Black replaced him after changing his name to Jay Black. Brooklyn Bridge featured Johnny Maestro on vocals.

6. In 1969, Sly & The Family Stone had success with the song "Everyday People." Which catch phrase from the '60s was used in this tune's lyrics?

From Quiz Pop Music Hits of 1969

Answer: Different strokes for different folks.

Sly & The Family Stone reached the number one position in the U.S. Billboard charts in early 1969 with "Everyday People." The song's basic message was that people of all races must learn to get along and respect each other. The song's theme was summed up in these lyrics: "Different strokes for different folks And so on, and so on, and scooby dooby dooby Ooh, sha sha- we got to live together..."

7. Who was saying their farewell to this place, with these lyrics? "I can't see you I don't need you"

From Quiz Whose Line Was It Anyway? UK Number One Hits 1969

Answer: The Move

It was The Move singing "Blackberry Way". It was their first and last UK number one. They had one US chart hit at number 93 in 1972 with "Do Ya" Jeff Lynne and Roy Wood formed E.L.O. then Roy Wood left and formed Wizzard. Desmond Dekker had a UK number one in 1969 with "The Israelites". It reached number nine on the US chart. Humble Pie had a UK number four hit in 1969 with "Natural Born Bugie". It never charted in the US. Jethro Tull had a UK number three hit in 1969 with "Living In The Past". It reached number eleven on the US chart in the 70's.

8. Which song by Tommy James and The Shondells topped the charts on February 1, 1969?

From Quiz Billboard Number One Songs of 1969

Answer: Crimson and Clover

"Crimson and Clover" was symbolic of the psychedelic music of the late sixties. Tommy got the title of the song simply from putting two of his favorite words together. After the success of their breakout hit "Hanky Panky" Tommy was searching for a unique sound for the band and related in an interview that he had found the sound with "Crimson and Clover". After extensive touring Tommy collapsed from exhaustion on stage in Alabama and temporarily retired from the music business in 1970. "Who's Making Love" charted for Johnny Taylor in December of 1968. "People Got to Be Free" was number three for the Rascals in September of 1968 and "1,2,3 Red Light" was a bubble gum song by 1910 Fruitgum Company.

9. "Dizzy" was a number one hit for which American pop singer?

From Quiz Hits of 1969

Answer: Tommy Roe

"Dizzy" was written by Tommy Roe and Freddy Weller. Tommy Roe took it to number one in the UK and the US. It has since been covered by Boney M and Billy J. Kramer. British comedian Vic Reeves also had success with it taking it to number one in 1991.

10. "He wear no shoeshine, he got toe jam football He got monkey finger, he shoot Coca Cola He say I know you, you know me One thing I can tell you is You got to be free" One of a kind lyrics! The song?

From Quiz 1969 - Something is Coming Together

Answer: Come Together

I was hoping to find a "Beatles Lyrics Interpretive Centre" website so I could learn what the heck Lennon was rambling about throughout this song - no luck! However, I did find out that Lennon originally wrote a song called "Come Together, Join The Party" on behalf of Timothy Leary when Leary was campaigning for the position "Governor of California" in 1969. This hit spun-off from that campaign song. Leary endorsed the usage of LSD and... well, maybe that's some explanation for the lyrics! This song was a #1 Billboard hit but failed to chart at all in the U.K. The BBC would not play the song because the lyrics contained "Coca Cola", a trademarked name... they considered that advertising! Let's see what's on the other side.

11. "I hear hurricanes a-blowing I know the end is coming soon I fear rivers over flowing I hear the voice of rage and ruin" Remember this classic?

From Quiz 1969 - A Baaaad Moon Is Risin'

Answer: Bad Moon Rising

The second #2 hit for Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1969, the bleak lyrics were John Fogerty's view of an impending apocalypse of doom. The music, however, was real toe-tapping and energetic, totally incongruous to the message! It's speculated that Fogerty did this on purpose feeling that radio stations wouldn't play the song if the music was as sombre as the words. The point may be moot but the fact is that the record sold over 2 million copies!

12. What was the title of this 1969 classic? "Jo Jo was a man who thought he was a loner but he knew it couldn't last Jo Jo left his home in Tucson, Arizona for some California grass"

From Quiz 1969 - Get Together

Answer: Get Back

A #1 song for The Beatles all over the world, the song's style was to be reflected throughout an album also to be entitled "Get Back". Essentially, they were "getting back" to their roots. Instead, the group started splintering and ultimately, all the tracks that they recorded in a simple and straightforward manner were altered drastically by Phil Spector who was brought in to complete production of the album. Utilizing his "wall of sound" technique with lush strings and full orchestration, even the album's title was changed to "Let It Be". It was long rumored that McCartney so despised the album that he intended to re-master the original tracks, eliminate Spector's work and re-release the album as it was meant to be. It took over thirty years but it got done! "Let It Be... Naked" was, in fact, released in late 2002. Incidentally, this was the song The Beatles were playing at the infamous "concert" atop the roof of Apple Records when the police arrived and shut them down.

13. What was the #10 song for the year 1969? "Ah, now I don't hardly know her, But I think I could love her, Crimson and clover. Ah when she comes walking over, Now I've been waitin' to show her, Crimson and clover, over and over."

From Quiz BRI's Top Ten Hits for 1969

Answer: Crimson and Clover

School boy Tommy James put together a group called the Shondelles when he was only 12 years old. The boys made a vanity recording of the song "Hanky Panky" while in high school, and shortly thereafter split up. Now this is where the story gets really interesting. A DJ from Pittsburgh somehow got hold of the record and started playing it, attracting the attention of a recording house who acquired the rights, and before long it was a number one hit. Tommy James quickly formed a second band, calling this one Tommy James and the Shondelles. "Crimson and Clover" was their second number one hit.

14. "And When I Die": "All I ask of living is to have no chains on me, And all I ask of dying is to go _____"

From Quiz What's The Missing Word? - 1969

Answer: naturally

Laura Nyro wrote this Blood, Sweat & Tears jazz infused piece of pop/rock to #2 in the fall of 1969. In 1970 the Nixon administration hired them to tour eastern Europe as goodwill ambassadors of sorts.

From Quiz Who Sings What In 1969

Answer: Percy Sledge

18. Which progressive rock band recorded the song "Living in the Past"?

From Quiz Hits of 1969 - Part 2

Answer: Jethro Tull

"Living in the Past" (1969) was recorded by British band Jethro Tull, it was written by lead singer Ian Anderson. It got to number three in the UK and number eleven in the US. Midge Ure recorded a cover version in 1986. Jethro Tull were formed in Lancashire, England in 1967.

19. Fleetwood Mac's only UK number one hit came in 1969. What is the tile?

From Quiz That Was The Year That Was: Pop Music 1969

Answer: Albatross

"Albatross" was written by Peter Green. It was number one for one week on the UK singles chart for Fleetwood Mac in 1969. It did not chart in the US. We had a completely different Fleetwood Mac back in 1969, the group on "Albatross" were all Brits, Mick Fleetwood (drums), Peter Green (lead guitar), Danny Kirwan (guitar) and John McVie (bass guitar). Pete Green must have been inspired to write "Albatross" by Chuck Berry's "Deep Feeling" (1957) and Santo & Johnny's "Sleep Walk" (1959). Listen to these tracks and hear for yourself. "Albatross" returned to the UK singles chart in 1973 and peaked at number two. The later Anglo/American Fleetwood Mac were Lindsey Buckingham (lead guitar), Mick Fleetwood (drums), Christine McVie (vocals, keyboards), John McVie (bass guitar) and Stevie Nicks (vocals). They did not have a number one hit on the UK singles chart but did have one on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Dreams", which was number one for one week in 1977.

20. At Number Two was Elvis Presley with a song containing the following lyrics: "A young man breaks away. He buys a gun, steals a car, tries to run, but he don't get far". Name the song.

From Quiz My Birthday Top Ten - 1969

Answer: In The Ghetto

"In The Ghetto" marked the start of Elvis's comeback - he hadn't had a big hit for three years when it was released.

21. Which legendary location did Donovan sing about on his 1969 Number Seven single?

From Quiz One-Word US Top Forty Hits from 1969

Answer: Atlantis

When "Atlantis" was released in the US "To Susan On The West Coast Waiting" was the flip-side. "Atlantis" began with a narration by Donovan. The song had been released a year earlier in the UK with "I Love My Shirt" as the flip-side. Despite a running time over four minutes "Atlantis" was a Top Ten hit in the US. It peaked at Number 23 in the UK. "Atlantis" was Donovan's last Top Ten single of the Sixties. "Tangier" was a cut on Donovan's 1968 "The Hurdy Gurdy Man" album. "Atlantis" was from Donovan's 1969 album "Barabajagal". "Madrigalinda" was from Donovan's 1980 "Neutronica" LP.

22. Of all the gin joints in all the world, who met who in Memphis? "She had to heave me right across her shoulder Cause I just can't seem to drink you off my mind"

From Quiz Whose Line Was It Anyway? US Number One Hits 1969

Answer: The Rolling Stones

"Honky Tonk Women" gave The Rolling Stones a number one for four weeks on the US pop chart in 1969. It was their fifth and last US number one of the '60s. It was number one for five weeks on the UK chart in 1969 and was their eighth and last UK number one of the '60s. Steppenwolf had a number ten hit on the US pop chart in 1969 with "Rock Me", it did not chart in the UK. The Who had a number 19 hit on the US pop chart in 1969 with "Pinball Wizard". It reached number four on the UK chart in 1969. The Who never had a number one hit on the UK or US charts. Led Zeppelin had a number 80 hit on the US pop chart in 1969 with "Good Times Bad Times", it did not chart in the UK. Led Zeppelin had one UK chart hit in 1997, "Whole Lotta Love" reached number 21. It reached number four on the US pop chart in 1970. They had eight number one albums on the UK album chart between 1969 and 1979, and six number one albums on the US album chart in the same period.

23. Please complete this line from the 1969 hit "Crystal Blue Persuasion" by Tommy James & The Shondells: "A new day is dawning, people are ______________ Ain't it beautiful, crystal blue persuasion..."

From Quiz Pop Music Hits of 1969

"A new day is dawning, people are changing Ain't it beautiful, crystal blue persuasion..."

24. Who was very very sweet on this girl, in this song? "You are my candy girl And you got me wanting you"

From Quiz Whose Line Was It Anyway? UK Number One Hits 1969

Answer: The Archies

It was cartoon characters The Archies singing "Sugar Sugar". It was their only UK chart hit. It also went to number one on the US chart. Slightly better than cartoon characters, The Monkees had their last UK hit of the 60's in 1969 with "Someday Man" at number 47. It reached number 81 on the US chart. Tommy James and The Shondells had a US number one in 1969 with "Crimson and Clover". It never charted in the UK. The Honey Cone had a US number 62 in 1969 with "While You're Out Looking For Sugar?". They never had any chart hits in the UK.

25. Tommy Roe had success in the early sixties with songs such as "Sheila". What comeback song brought him to the top of the charts on March 15, 1969?

From Quiz Billboard Number One Songs of 1969

Answer: Dizzy

Tommy wrote the song with one of the members of Paul Revere and the Raiders, Freddy Weller. They connected on Dick Clark's show "Where the Action Is". Producer Steve Barri thought the song wasn't right for Tommy but relented and then added strings. The record was Tommy's biggest hit, selling six million records despite the bubblegum appeal. Tommy would have one more top ten with "Jam Up and Jelly Tight" before leaving Malibu and music and returning to his home state of Georgia. "Traces" was number four the same week for Classics IV. "Heather Honey" was a follow up to "Dizzy" and peaked at number 29. "Hooray for Hazel" was an earlier Roe hit.

26. Which rock and roll legend recorded "Suspicious Minds"?

From Quiz Hits of 1969

"Suspicious Minds" was written by Mark James and recorded by Elvis Presley. It was a number one hit in the US and got to number two in the UK. It has since been covered by many artists such as Fine Young Cannibals, Dee Dee Warwick and Gareth Gates.

27. "Somewhere in her smile she knows That I don't need no other lover Something in her style that shows me I don't want to leave her now You know I believe and how" Frank Sinatra deemed this to be the greatest love song ever written. Name it.

From Quiz 1969 - Something is Coming Together

Answer: Something

On its own, this George Harrison composition charted at #3 in the U.S. and #4 in the U.K. but it also appears on The Beatles album of #1 hits "1". What gives? There was a brief period when Billboard stopped assigning separate rankings for discs that were considered "Double-A Side" releases. Hence, "Something" is deemed to be a co-#1 hit with "Come Together". Billboard changed their rating policy the very week "Come Together" hit #1 - November 29, 1969. I believe this occurred only one other time when "American Woman" and "No Sugar Tonight" by The Guess Who shared #1 honors in 1970. It should be noted that this was the first time that a Harrison composition was released as an "A" side on a Beatles' 45. It has been covered at least 150 times by other artists. "Yesterday" leads The Beatles' records in that category - it's been covered a phenomenal 2500+ times!

28. "When Jesus washed Oh when he washed When Jesus washed He washed my sins away" This Gospel number was the surprise hit of the year for The Edwin Hawkins Singers. Do you recall the song's title?

From Quiz 1969 - Get Together

Answer: Oh Happy Day

"Oh Happy Day" was originally written in 1755, revised in 1855 and continues to be published in Baptist song books. Edwin Hawkins formed the Northern California State Youth Choir in Oakland in 1967 and they recorded an album of Gospel songs in 1968 as a fund raiser for the choir. A local DJ started playing the album and this song in particular. As it became a regional success, Buddah Records changed the name of the group and released the song to the international market. It soared to #4 on the Billboard charts and #2 in the U.K. Their success was short lived - they backed up Melanie on her hit "Lay Down (Candles In The Wind)" in 1970 and would have no other commercial successes thereafter. However, this song won a Grammy for Best Soul Gospel Performance and apparently was the inspiration for George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord", another big hit in 1970. To my knowledge, the group itself is no longer active under any name.
