Subject: 1973 Hits - Volume 1 [Last Answers Revealed]

Written By: Henk on 07/01/12 at 10:46 am

It's been a while...but now I'm back. 8)
Here's a pretty straightforward lyrics quiz. All songs were 1973 hits somewhere.
(That's to say: some may have charted later or earlier elsewhere)

Please note that I'm looking for the 1973 versions, so it's not all original artists.
Also, some artists may be represented more than once. ;)

Limit = OFF! to start with. Good luck everyone! :)





Hints!


03. A song by an American R&B/soul vocal group, formed in 1952. Their lineup didn’t change from 1960 to 2009
      when lead vocalist Johnny Carter died. This song peaked at #34 in US. How’s about a big round of applause?

04. A song that peaked at #12 in both US and Canada, and at #36 in Australia. It was the follow-up to ‘I Am Woman’,
      and preceded ‘Delta Dawn’. The singer is Helen Reddy– but I think you’ve guessed by now.

08. The band is The Raspberries.
      This wasn’t their biggest hit, peaking at #35 in US. It’s only make believe….

09. The singer is Gilbert O'Sullivan. But there’s No Way you’re going to guess the name of the song.
      It peaked at #17 in US, but oddly it wasn’t a hit at all in UK.

13. The singer is Carly Simon. This song peaked at #17 in both UK and US, and at #20 in Canada.
      Nothing wrong with that.

15. This song is probably best known in the 1991 cover version by Kiss, used in Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.

16. A massive hit (US #1, UK #14, NL #5) for this American vocal group that has been around since 1960 in various formations
      Members included Dennis Edwards, Eddie Kendricks and David Ruffin.
      The song is about daddy.

19. A hit in UK (#3) for this androgynous musical chameleon. It’s something to do with movie theatres, American style,
      on weekend days.

22. OK, so this wasn’t a big hit (US #50). The singer is Austin Roberts. The chant must go on…

25. This singer had a string of hits in the country charts, but this was his only crossover hit (if you can call it that,
      peaking at #37 in US). Among his hits were songs as ‘Too Far Gone’, ‘If You Touch Me, You’ve Got To Love Me’
      and ‘I’m Still Loving You’.

26. Another rather obscure song (US #37, UK #14), from an American Grammy-Award winning soul/R&B singer.
      His biggest US hit was ‘Get Down, Get Down (Get On The Floor)’. Let’s take it one pace at a time.

29. In their heydays, the group consisted of a leading lady with three male backing vocalists. They had a string of hits,
      mainly between 1959 and 1978. This was the last single they recorded before leaving Motown Records.
      It peaked at #19 in US.

30. This ‘accidental duo’ could’ve gone for Kenny & Jim, but they didn’t. They're Loggins & Messina.
      The song (that peaked at #18 in US) was the follow-up to the popular ‘Your Mama Don’t Dance’.

31. A band of brothers… Some of them also had successful solo careers. The song was the b-side of
      ‘Let Me In’. As such, it charted in UK (#2) and US (#36), although uncredited.
      In The Netherlands, it was the other way round (peak position: #4).

35. An earlier incarnation of the band was known as the Nite-Liters, but by 1973 the band had added some vocalists.
      Maybe that’s why they felt ReBorn. The song (peaking at #35 in US) was originally sung by
      Bobby Womack & The Valentinos .

38. This vocal group originates from Little Rock, but they soon moved to the motor city (and accordingly lengthened their name).
      A riff from one of their songs (actually, the follow-up to this song) was used as a sample in De La Soul’s ‘Say No Go’. 
      But the group’s best known song is ‘Feel The Need In Me’.

40. This one really is obscure, I admit. It only made #55 in US, and turned out to be the band’s penultimate charting single
      (the last being ‘Mamacita’, in 1975). Lead singer Rob Grill died in 2011.

43. Jerry Lee Lewis, with a cover version of a 1947 song. This was the last of his singles to make Hot 100, peaking at #41.
      It peaked at #33 in Canada. Of course it’s about an alcoholic drink.

44. Another cover, this song that peaked at #5 in UK and #3 in The Netherlands (but it only made #96 in Australia).
      It was first recorded by The Chordettes in 1956, who took it to #5 in US.
      The singer is Dave Edmunds.

46. This (one word) song is the title track of one of the band’s albums. It was a hit only in The Netherlands (#3).
      The band is Redbone.

50. The singer is Barbara Mason. The song (a cover version of a Curtis Mayfield song) peaked at #31 in US.

This is true actually.  However, on the cassette copy of their 1974 album 'Waterloo' I have, 'Ring Ring' is a bonus track on Side 2 and the album is credited as ABBA (Bjorn, Benny, Agnetha & Frida).  This may have been for the North American market though

#12 is "Hellraiser" by (The) Sweet*

According to their record labels, they were known as 'The Sweet' until they started hitting their hard rock phase...

(In a similar vein, Pink Floyd were normally billed as 'The Pink Floyd' until Syd was jettisoned...)

And I pretty much need a life, but until then...

#6. 'Pillow Talk' - Sylvia
#11. 'Walking In The Rain' - certain it's the David Cassidy/Partridge Family version that you're looking for...
#20. 'Shambala' - Three Dog Night

...and I'm fairly stumped with what remains!  ???

I try... but it's so hard to determine what's obscure and what's not! I have been surprised by people's knowledge in the past, and I honestly thought the songs in this quiz were pretty well known. (OK, maybe not all, but at least 80%)
From the top of my head, I believe most of the songs remaining were Top 30 hits in at least one country (UK, US and/or NL). I wouldn't want to call that obscure. :-\\

I appreciate your problem...it's not easy trying to strike a balance between what people will know and what you think they'll know (this is probably why I don't compile many quizzes myself!)

Once again, I see where you're coming from...but even so, quite a lot of people (myself included!) would have trouble pinpointing a song that, say, just about crawled to the lower reaches of the Top 30 - regardless of what country's chart it was!

It's a good quiz. I know 90% of the songs already mentioned..but (scratches head several times) relying on the lyrics posted to cue my memory retrieval isn't easy.  Then again there are people who have a greater knowledge of music then I have, and some have a lesser knowledge. I agree, you can't make it too easy. And you can't make it too hard.  You have walked the tightrope in between quiet well.

That's right, Kevin. No go kick yourself! :D ;D ;)


19. Saturday night at the movies - Sha Na Na?


A good try, but incorrect, Patty. :( (For what it's worth: it's the right day)


43. Jerry Lee Lewis - It Was the Whiskey Talkin'

44. My boyfriend's back


Jerry Lee Lewis is correct, but these are not the songs I'm after.

30. Loggins and Messina, but I'm not familiar enough with their stuff to know what the song is.

I'm drawing blanks on the titles, but I can fancy some guesses on the artists:

04 | Helen Reddy
08 | The Rasberries
13 | Carly Simon?
22 | Austin Roberts?
44 | Dave Edmunds?

A guess on the title for 44, is it 'I Hear You Knockin'?

All correct on the artists, Jason, but Jeff beat you to #8. The song title is incorrect, I'm afraid.

Not the Spinners, no, but you're very close.


#50 Barbara Mason

Nope. I already gave that as a clue (though you can't see that anymore). Besides: I'm looking for a one word song (and album) title.
