  • Silly Music Track Trivia

    With regards to the coming track meet in Rio, 2 questions:

    1. Why should the 1958 song " Western Movies" be featured ?

    2. Why should the 1960 group The Ventures be hired as officials, and for which events ?

    2. Their first big hit was a cover of "Walk, Don't Run". The events are obvious...

            Of course, if the band still existed, they would have to change their name because of legal craziness. Somewhat off topic, does anyone know how certain senior games (e.g. Rhode Island Senior Olympics) are allowed to use the word "Olympics" in their titles?

              Probably because the term is a couple of thousand years old. Kind of hard to claim exclusivity for something that has been around that long.

                  I think the Who should be involved. Which song would you pick? I'd go with Run, Run, Run from A Quick One (aka Happy Jack in the US).

                  And while we're at it, might as well make Van Halen the honorary emissaries for certain field events.
