Bobaloons Trivia Challenge
1. Let's start with something simple to warm up the old brain. Which artist had two hits with the same song? Once in 1962 and again in 1975 with a slowed down version of the same tune. Hey man that's an easy one. Give up?
|2. While we're on twin hits, how about this one. Which song was a number one hit, twice, by different artists and only a year apart. (hint: 1959 and 1960).|
|3. Is it all coming back to you now? How about this one. If "you keep lyin' when you ought to be truthin" what's gonna happen to you? (hint: it's a girl singer)||4. What year did "The King" Elvis make his television debut on the Ed Sullivan show.|
|5. In the fifties there was a kid's show that featured a rubber frog dressed in a tuxedo. In my part of the country the show was sponsered by a shoe company. Do you remember the frog's name (hint: if you know Frog, you know part of it already).||6.
O.K. wise guys, what was the name of the shoe company
that sponsored him. Inside the shoe was the picture of a
long haired boy and his dog. While you're at it, what was
the dog's name too?
|7. Hey man, can you tell me if there's any truth to the rumor that "Tricky Dick Nixon" ( yes, our ex president ) was nominated for a grammy.||8. Okay, scratch your head and tell me two songs that have the words "Fee Fee Fi Fi Fo Fo Fum" in them. Both songs have colorful titles and no, Jack And The Beanstalk is not a song.|
|9. Chuck Berry is one of the coolest cats around and has had tons of great songs. But did you know that only one tune ever made it to number one.( Hey cats it ain't Johnny B, Goode.)||10. I'm thinking of a Christmas song in which someone repeatedly ask for a Hula Hoop. He was a funny little guy who sounded like he'd been snorting helium or something. Name the song and the funny fella.|
|11. Okay, for you multi-lingual cats out there. (Is that anything like double jointed) Name two tunes that didn't have a word of English in them but went to numero uno on US Charts.||12. Chuck Berry, Merle Haggard and David Crosby all have something in common (besides the male thing). I'm sure they would all like to forget about it too.|
|13. Alan Arkin is a cool actor, but a singer? I've heard a rumor that he once had a hit record.( Hey, stranger things have happened.)||14. There once was a cat named Ernest Evans (not really a bad name) but changed it to something else and had several hit tunes. His new name was a take off of another great name "Fats Domino". Think about it.|
smart guys, which hit tune from 1957 was originally
called "Do the Bop" That's almost to easy.
|16. I know this isn't a fifties question but it's kinda neat anyhow. On Paul Simon's "Slip Sliding Away" have you ever noticed what group is providing backup vocals?|
cool things down a bit. Who, in the lyrics of his song,
said "If you're ever in Alaska, stop and see my cute
little eskimo". Brrrrrrrrr.
we're in a chilly state of mind, I'm sure you've all
heard "Jingle Bells" and "Silver
Bells". But there was a movie, a real headturner
too, that had a song called "Tubular Bells" as
