First things first.  I completely forgot to congratulate Zapple100 for answering the previous question on who originally performed Respect.  Congrats to the Zap for guessing correctly.

Second on the agenda, the last question..

Everyone knows the George Harrison song “Got My Mind Set On You“.  Who originally recorded it.  For bonus points, who wrote it.

George Harrison, everyone’s favourite Beatle recorded this song in 1987 and was one of his 3 number one songs in the USA.  That would be a trivia question on its own.  Wait, what’s that sound.  You mean he’s not the favourite Beatle.  Well, he is mine, no idea why, just seemed more down to earth than the others.  At any rate, here’s his version.

Got My Mind Set On You

The answer is James Ray, the bonus answer Rudy Clark.  The closest answer came from John The Aussie, sort of.  He asked the question while speaking to 100 miners and someone out there said James Raymond.  Close enough John, you take the title away from North America to the land of Oz, Australia.  Please congratulate John for being the current and reigning Lord of Music Trivia.

James Ray Original

And the new brain teaser is..

Q: Who did the original version of Soft Cell’s classic “Tainted Love”.  Yes. it is a cover.  For bonus points, who wrote it.

I am going to make a statement here.  I love Joel Plaskett.  The guy is a one man songwriting machine.  This tune is from 2009 and really highlights what Joel is all about.  I’ll write a song and then we will have a blast with  it.  His music always hits the good time mark and is always presented in a very casual, this is me way.  If you haven’t yet tweaked in on his music, do it now.  One Canadian that deserves, no, demands a world-wide audience.
