4th Nov 2002, 21:57
Hi scran. Johnny Rivers had the first hit with "Tracks of My Tears" over 'ere.:)

4th Nov 2002, 22:16
Sorry scran - your "Light My Fire' answer is incorrect. Jose Felciano did a cover version of the original by the Doors, and the band wrote it (or Robby Krieger, the band's guitarist did, to be exactly right)

4th Nov 2002, 22:42
OK......once again revised the first post:

Scores now are:

Brite - 29
Cooda - 6
reynolds - 6
Kenny - 5

Given Kenny 2 points for his Light My Fire Answer, plus 2 points to Reynolds for pointing out my error (but don't make a habit of it -

:mad: - see Rule 4!!!)

;) ;) ;) :D

Kenny Carter
4th Nov 2002, 22:55
thanks scran:)

4th Nov 2002, 23:00
In all fairness scran, you'd better ping me a point or two for getting the wrong artist on Light My Fire ;)

Of course you could also award me handicap points for only having three minutes to do the quiz on Mondays (and without the benefit of daylight saving Kenny) :D :p

5th Nov 2002, 00:43

5. Brad and Janet


g. bonus. - in a Volkswagon van and written on the inside of a torn-open Players 20 cigarette packet.


5th Nov 2002, 21:27
OK - Revised Revised Scores

Brite - 29
Jolly - 12
Cooda - 6
reynolds - 6
Kenny - 5
Luca - 4
PPRuNe Radar - 2
Jet - 1
Irishman - 1
AOTW - 1


I agree it was Barry Sadler - the reason Brite did not get the points is that she got the rank wrong (and me being Mil, I consider that a serious offence - almost docked her 20 points!!)

:( :(

Well done Jolly to pick up the bonus re Graham Edge and his writing style.

I'll wrap this quiz up.

With respect to Album 0t the Week 5 - everyone (it seems) forgot the chorus line - the Transylvannians.....

The group I was looking for with respect to Meatloaf was the Ted Nugent Band - seeing there were a few others we will drop that question,

And on the version I have - the B side of The Ballard of the Green Berets is "The A Team" - rule 4 remember.

Now, off to make 46 harder. Remember Brite, you may no longer post - if you want to play (:eek: ) e-mail me your answers and I'll tell you how you did separately.....

Till next Monday Gang!!!!!!!!

It's SADLER goddamit ;) And it's PPRuNe Radar

(I'm a PPRuNe Admin and therefore a despot and a pedant, I consider those serious offences :p . Ohhhhhh Scran, I might have to give you 20 PPRuNe penalty points.)

6th Nov 2002, 00:56
Thanks scran.
Saw in the obit column of todays Globe and Mail that Lonnie Donnegan died on Saturday. He was 71.
