Congratulations to Barbara Gandy!  Barbara had the most correct answers on the latest 60s music quiz.  Enjoy your Midtown Men tote, Barbara!!

Here are the answers:

The Four Seasons hit ‘Sherry’ was #3 for the year 1962, and spent 16 weeks on the charts – five of them at #1.  (“Big Girls Don’t Cry also hit #1 in 1962 and also spent five weeks in the top position, so either answer was acceptable.)

“This kid could be the next (Michael) Bublé.”  Joe Piscopo said this about Michael Longoria.

In 1966, the Beach Boys released the iconic album Good Vibrations.

Four Seasons #1 hit ‘Sherry’ was originally titled ‘Jackie Baby’, in honor of Jackie Kennedy.

In the name “Booker T & The M.G.’s”, the M.G. stands for Memphis Group.

In 2007, Daniel Reichard did a hilarious rendition of the Biz Markie rap song Just A Friend’.

‘Marlena’ was the B-side to ‘Candy Girl’. 

Patti LaBelle sang with the 1960’s girl group ‘The Bluebelles’. 

Christian Hoff was up against, and beat out, Jim Dale for both the “Best Featured Actor in a Musical” Tony award in 2006, and  the world record for “Most Character Voices in an Audio Book” for Tell Me How You Love the Picture.

Billy Fury had hits in the 1960’s with ‘Jealousy’, ‘Halfway to Paradise’, and ‘Like I’ve Never Been Gone’? 

J. Robert Spencer lists Improv Olympic – Stand Up on his resumé.

‘Candy Girl’ was the first Four Seasons single NOT composed by either Bob Gaudio or Bob Crewe.

    Congratulations, Barbara. I still recall Tony night, where I daresay even Christian was truly surprised at besting the heavily favored Jim Dale. Jim had won the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards and the Vegas bettors had made him odds-on at 4/5 at Tony time (the same odds as JLY over Harry Connick Jr.) Shades of longshot “Avenue Q” beating favored “Wicked” for best musical in 2004 or Judy Holliday taking the Oscar over BOTH Bette Davis and Gloria Swanson in 1950.

    I think that the Tony voters agreed with me by giving the award to Christian as the BEST featured performer, wheras for Jim Dale, it would have been more of a lifetime achievement award. I recall seeing Jim Dale and Glenn Close in the phenomenal “Barnum” in 1980, and that indeed was the BEST performance that year, and rightfully rewarded by the Tony voters.

    Not to feel sorry for Jim, though. I’m sure he’s done very well by narrating the Harry Potter series!! And for Christian, well, as they say, the rest is history.

  2. Congratulations Barbara! Even I learned a little bit more about my bandmates on this one. Thanks for playing everybody.

    – Christian
