Many Happy Returns Katie. I hope you had a great 21st. Tell your Uncle he has good taste but it's not Rufus walking the dog this time.

No correct answer for Q1 yet either ! No one said Linda Ronstadt yet - she covers everyone's songs, but I love her - although it's not her.

:P

Yes Edna, but she might not know who covered his songs ! Get her to mention a few of his Big Hits to you, and you might know someone who's covered one. (Although a few people have covered JM's song I'm thinking of).

Goodnight All. Bedtime for me. :sleepy: :sleepy:

Sorry, not Dion Katie.

Walking The Dog and Under The Boardwalk were a double sided Hit record for the Stones here in Australia in 1965, but NOT in the U.K. or the U.S.

I don't think they were released as singles there.

They're hard to get, because you don't see them on any "compilation" CDs.

Night !

YAY! I got one! :D I didn't know which Steve Lawrence one but I thought I'd guess anyways.

I actually tried to get Walking The Dog by the Stones and couldn't. It is weird how they put the albums together differently for different parts of the world.

:sleepy:

Actually "Walking the dog" was released on their first British album, and "Under the boardwalk" is on "Rolling Stones, 21x5", also British version. It´s a real mess as they don´t have the same songs on the same albums depending where they were released...

I was about to post my last guess, a hit called "I need a crystal ball (To read Darryl´s mind)"...

..."if you could read my mind love, what a tale my thoughts would tell"

That's interesting about those 2 songs. Thanks edna. Maybe Australia was one of the very few places they were released as a double sided 45 rpm Single ! Wish I had it.

My single (bought in the mid or late sixties in Argentina) had "Paint it black" and "Under the boardwalk" :stars: So you see...

And the album was more than "21x5", I believe it was "25x5"'????:P

Q1 the name of the titles dont appear in the song????

:coolio: THAT'S IT ! CONGRATULATIONS LAURIE !!! :coolio:

My next clue was going to be "it's what's NOT in the songs" but you didn't need it.

Q2

That's

Screamin' Jay Hawkins

I Put a Spell on You

later covered by Creedence Clearwater Revival

:coolio: HE'S THE MAN ! CONGRATULATIONS BLUESBOY !!! :coolio:

He was a wild man on stage apparently. I'd really like to see some footage of him.
