DISCLAIMER: Management assumes no responsibility for any songs or song fragments that may become permanently lodged in the reader’s head as a result of the following post. Proceed at your own risk.
One date. Two trivia questions. Two songs. Ten years apart. One fabulous prize.
Two songs — one recorded in 1967, and one recorded in 1977 — begin with the line:
“It was the third of June …”
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to supply the following information for both songs:
1. The rest of the line.
2. The name of the song.
3. The name of the singer-songwriter who wrote and recorded it.
First person to post the correct answers will win a fabulous prize, to be revealed later this week. Bonus points if you can get the answers without the aid of Google.
(Note to Mom, Dad, and Nerd: Y’all are not eligible to participate in this contest, ‘cos we’ve already discussed the answers.)
