Mystery Tune of the Day

Post by Kitkat on 8th November 2014, 12:39

New feature on the Forum.  NAME THAT TUNE

In the side panel of the Forum, you will see a little Jukebox with a questionmark inside.



Click on the image - then click the little arrow on the big Jukebox to hear the Mystery Tune of the Day.
(Click the arrow again to stop it!)

If you think you know what the tune is, post your answers here in this thread.
(The answer will be published the next day).

10 points for everyone who gets the answer correct (before the answer comes up of course!)
You must identify the song by Performing Artist and Title.  5 points if you get only one of those right.

Bimbow, you don't need to be logged in for it to work - and it does work ...

When you click on the Jukebox image (in side panel) you will see a large Jukebox (as well as the little jukebox image).  Look at the scrolling panel (on the BIG jukebox) saying "Can you identify the Title and the Performer" -  
Just to the left of that scrolling sentence, you will see a little white arrow in a black circle.
Click on that arrow - and it plays a snippet of the tune.
Click on it again to stop it.

Yesterday's tune was 'Californa Dreamin' by the Mamas and the Papas

I was right. :thumb: (and bimbow was right by agreeing and so deserves the 10 points for being correct. )

I've no idea what today's Mystery Tune is. Sounds like it could be something out of the 50's or 60's ...
at a guess I would say could be something by Nat King Cole or maybe Patsy Cline.

It sounds to me like it could be the intro to "Mona Lisa", but it's not the Nat King Cole version, so I'm stumped.

It was Johnny Mathis - 'Chances Are'.  

Never heard of it.  shrug

1957.  rock     Well .... I did say 50's or 60's.  geek


Today's tune is easy peasy:  Rockin' Robin - Michael Jackson

ETA: Actually, it could be The Jackson Five; not sure what year it was ... but he does sound rather young and 'squeaky' in that song and might still have been with his brothers.

Today's song is easy - Tennessee Waltz.  It took a bit longer to find the artist, but it was Patti Page.

Well done, bimbow. :thumb:  "Deeh pwah" ...   cheesy  

Never heard of Patti Page before.  I know the song 'Tennessee Waltz' of course but I would automatically associate it with Patsy Cline or Slim Whitman (or any number of Irish Showbands who would sing it in the dance halls).


Today's tune is driving me mad.  I do recognise the air but just can't put a finger on it ....   giveup

Rockin' Robin

10 points to Whiskers also!  Well done! toast

(I have only given myself 6 points there; 5 for the song and just 1 for the performer as to be fair I really wasn't quite sure).

So it does, bimbow!  Shocked   (Bobby Day?  Never heard of 'im before this - have you?)
Looked it up and found this on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LklFP1IG9KY (from 1957!)

I was of course referring to the 1972 version (which I had assumed was the original!)

here:      (Jackson 5)

Aah ... today's tune is a bit more in my time.  

'Working my way back to you' by The Spinners

1979 (I think)



Yesterday's was from 1963 - 'Go away little girl' by Steve Lawrence

I thought today's was the intro to "Black is black" but it doesn't match anything I could find on YT.  The song is actually "Working my way back to you" performed by The Spiiners.  BUT BUT - when I access the player on my PC, it plays the next clip, and gives the answer to this one as being by The Four Seasons.  It isn't - you can find both on YT and they are different. hairpull

AHH!   The one that is now being played IS The Four Seasons version!


EDIT. Back on my laptop, and it is still playing The Spinners version. The problem has to do with the cache - it plays the last version you listened to. I'll clear the cache and see what happens. Yes, when I go back to yesterday's quiz it now plays the Four Seasons version. They changed it for some reason.

The latest one is easy - I bought the LP in the early 70s, but I'll shut up now!

I'm starting to think that whoever devised this Mystery Tune thing is a bit of a tease - it's like they get some sort of sadistic pleasure out of deliberately putting some kind of a twist in the tail, just to torture us!
(Roald Dahl reincarnated or summat! - 'Tales of the Unexpected')

I was absolutely confident that the last one was 'Working my way back to you'.  Yes that was correct - BUT they had to go and make it the Four Seasons version - knowing full well that everyone is going to pick the most well known and obvious - i.e. The Spinners ......................   scratch

rock


(Today's is the title music to the film 'The Sting' - though I don't know if the record was actually called that ...
and I think the performer was Russ Conway).   nuts

You should be able to find the title of the piano piece easily. And it is NOT Russ Conway playing!!!

Okay, now here's where I'm going with this ....  

There was a record (vinyl, 45) that came out in the 70's - with one guy playing 'The Entertainer' on the piano (thought that was Russ Conway).  Was on Top of the Pops at the time and it [that version] actually went into the Top 10 in Ireland - and I bought the record (45)!

If this guy does his usual 'twist' and gives the correct answer as Scott Joplin - from 1902 !!!  .... I will ... I .....  I ... gaah   giveup

To be on the safe side, I'm plumping for this version:




PS: I looked it up - and there was a bloke called Marvin Hamlisch who did a version in the 70's which apparently made the Top 20 in the UK. (Still convinced that Russ Conway did it also .... somewhere ....) chair

Marvin Hamlisch played "The Entertainer" - v e r y slowly - on the filmtrack of "The Sting" and it's that performance in the quiz.  Joshua Rifkin also brought out 2 LPs of selected pieces by Joplin around the same time.  I had one of them.

PS  This is Joplin himself from a piano roll in 1902.
