While putting together one of my posts for later this week, I got to thinking about television shows and music. Specifically TV shows from the 1960's. So I've put together a little quiz for you. At first I thought that you would have had to have been there, but with most of these shows in syndication, chances are most of you are familiar with them.
So here's a little quiz for you. See how many you know without having to resort to Google!
1. The Donna Reed Show introduced us to three Top 40 hits, each one sung by one or more of the TV children. Name the songs.
2. Almost everybody can sing that little diddy about a man named Jed. The poor mountaineer that barely kept his family fed. What was the name of the TV show and who wrote the theme song?
3. Henry Mancini was one of the most prolific composers of the 60's. You may recognize Moon River, Days of Wine and Roses and The Pink Panther Theme as his works. He also used his talent to write the theme songs for two very popular TV shows. Coincidentally, both shows dealt with detectives. Name the two shows.
4. On September 17, 1967, one of America's most popular bands appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show. Although they were scheduled to perform on six more shows, Mr Sullivan abrubtly cancelled their contract after just one performance because they refused to change one word in their popular song. Who was the group and what was the song?
Ok, I'll be monitoring your answers in the Comments section but not saying anything. The answers will be revealed on Thursday. Have fun!
