NEW QUESTION:

The Moonglows had a great song called the "Ten Commandments Of Love" way back in 1958, which was more recently covered by Aaron Neville. WHAT is unusual about, or missing from, the lyrics? (They can be easily downloaded, more likely the Aaron Neville version).

A. Is it something to do with them being some of the first Warner Brothers singles?

I'm going to declare this one and give earth-angel 3 Points.

Your answer is VERY close ! GREAT EFFORT :) :)

The answer is they were each the VERY FIRST SINGLE RELEASED on their respective labels: Warner Brothers 1960 (Cathy's Clown) and Dimension Records 1962 (Locomotion).

:coolio:

I'm also allocating 2 points to Laurie, VERY close too in her answer, because Cathy's Clown was a Big UK #1, but Locomotion stalled at #2. 1 Participation point each to Uncle and Kevin.

:D

I'm stumped. Is it a Dylan song?
