  • More hints:

    The earlier work is from an album titled "Music to Moog By", composed by Gershon Kingsley of Perrey & Kingsley. The song was re-recorded two years later by Kingsley's band The First Moog Quartet. The mystery tune you've listened to was recorded the following year by a member of the First Moog Quartet and his newly formed band. This tune became the first primarily electronic based piece of music to reach the American pop music charts.

  • Since this "mystery song" has been downloaded so many times, I'll give the answer so you can add this info into the file that was downloaded. (I know I always like to know where and when my tunes came from.)

    Song Title:          "Popcorn"
    Performing Group: Hot Butter
    Year of Release:   1972
    Album Title:         "Popcorn"

    This song saturated the airwaves along with the other popular tunes of that year, especially when I and my buddy would go bowling - it seemed the alley jukebox would play that song every other turn.

  • Here's an oldie (sorta-kinda) that was written to promote plastic models made by Hawk ...

    Gremmie Out of Control ... can you name the band that covered this tune?

  • As Ripley used to say ... "Believe it or not", the band that covered this tune is Pearl Jam, from an album in 2003 titled "Lost Dogs".     :P

  • This singer had a successful career singing in a group and then a fine solo career to follow. He then moved into an acting career by co-starring in a famous television show of the '60s.

  • That's "Who Will Answer?" by Ed Ames of The Ames Brothers on RCA from Dec. 1967. I still have the original 45 (with picture sleeve) I bought in 1968.

    The 1960's TV show he was in was "Daniel Boone" as the character "Mingo".

  • Yes that was Ed Ames.
    It must have been because of Ed Ames' role as Mingo the Indian on the "Daniel Boone" show that Carson had him demonstrate how to throw a tomahawk.

    Thanks, man!  I love watching old Tonight Show stuff on YouTube, but especially the band clips, as you can't seem to find those on a released DVD or VHS.

    I loved watching Johnny, ever since I was young enough to stay up! Hell, I haven't watched the Tonight Show in years....

  • Nifty crap, FineBari3 ...
    You just don't know what priceless gems will come from these "innocuous" quiz questions. I watched "Daniel Boone" as a child and listened to my mothers LP's of Ed Ames ... hence the question posted. Thanks for the wondrous foray into the recent past!

  • And speaking of the '60's ... (at least I think its from the '60's)

    Name this tune and in what television commercial was it used ... extra points for naming the group that performed it.

  • You know, when you said name the TV commercial, I had a feeling it would be this tune, before I even played it.

    The song is called "No Matter What Shape (Your Stomach's In)" and was originally done by the group The T-Bones (hit 45 on Liberty Records, entered most charts in Dec. 1965, was a hit through early 1966).

    But this version you have here is not The T-Bones. It sounds close to the original, but even the first drum beat told me it's someone else. The info that appears at the top of the screen while it's playing says Spooky Pie. Could that be the name of some new band that covered the song? Whoever it is did a good job, but it's not the original hit version by The T-Bones.

    The TV commercial it was used in was for Alka-Seltzer. In fact, the front cover of the T-Bones' 1966 album featuring the song is a montage of images from the commercials, showing various shaped stomachs.

  • Regarding Johnny Carson:

    He was a class act. I enjoyed watching him whenever I could over the years.
    Mentions of Carson sometimes remind me of one fond memory I have of my late brother David. In the 1970's he'd come home from working or somewhere, or if I'd been out and he was home, we'd ask each other "Is Johnny on Johnny tonight?" meaning is Johnny Carson going to be on the show, or will it be a guest host? If Johnny wasn't on, we usually wouldn't watch it.

  • This is not really any kind of Music Quiz, but I wasn't sure of a better place to post this.

    Here's a fun recording from a great performer. It's from 1957 and should be of special interest to Three Stooges fans:

    I think I remember discussing this version of this song and Three Stooges connection recently on some message group.
