    The best Beatles album is Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. It was a ground breaking album in terms of record engineering and production. Many new ideas were employed including the use of headphones as microphones on stringed instruments, placing microphones down in the bells of brass instruments, and creative use of panning.

    Hi Sebatron. First, I want to also extend my appreciation for sponsoring such a contest.

    Forgive me for bringing this up, especially right in the middle of the currently open question(For various reasons, I was hesitant to wait), however, I have a question in regards to your question #10: " 2/ Is the second last name of the second last man who walked on the moon ..... is it Schmidt or Harrisson ?"...and also in lieu of your statement, " We cannot have two people answering the same questions ,, so please avoid that."

    Well, I initially agreed with Mike's answer "yes"(Harrison H. Schmitt), but then I noticed you had misspelled both names: Harrison and Schmitt.(you have Harrisson and Schmidt) Considering the nature of this contest, your interest in space travel, etc., etc., I couldn't see you accidentally misspelling these names, so I assumed you were trying to trick us....thus my answer, "No."

    Am I way off base here? Just curious. Thanks again Sebatron. :cool:

    Being a huge Beatles fan, I have to say Hey Jude is
    the perfect combination of melody and lyrics.
    It is one song that I can listen to
    over and over and never get tired of hearing it.

    Sebatron Well-Known Member

    ...in fact ,, then ,, both of you are wrong ....
    His full name is : Harrison Hagen Schmitt
    First name: Harrison
    Second last name : Hagen
    Last Name : Schmitt

    Mike has been trying real hard lately ,, we can all see that ..... it was only fair to award him some points ..... not many ...... :wink:
    You'll get more points , Bri ..... when you do your time .... :cool:

    No that's fine man .... the sponsor feels that all intentions can be justified ,,, it's the big picture that counts.

    I don't either....
    I checked out Ray Campi ..... he did release it in 1977.
    Of course we all know it by Jerry Lee Lewis' version...
    I thought Dave was being original by stating the unobvious ..... :?

    However you have brought to light my awareness to the fact that Campi did not infact write the classic tune.... so Dave may be taxed an undisclosed amount of points in the near future.It won't be obvious ,,, it may not even register. :wink:

    Now hopefully the bickering will end here ,,
    and we can get back into The ~SEBATRON~ Quiz ...... :lol:


    These are now the current scores ,,, totally locked in and NOT NEGOTIABLE....

    When I was researching the Whole Lotta Shakin' question, the site I was using listed separate entries for Whole Lotta Shakin' and Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On, which led me to believe that they were two separate songs. Jerry Lee Lewis was not listed as an rtist who had performed Whole Lotta Shakin' but was (of course) listed as an artist who had performed Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On. This strengthened my belief that they were two different songs. Since a person playing in your contest doesn't exactly have all the time in the world, I quickly gave my Ray Campi answer believing that they were indeed different songs. I have now found the truth that they are one and the same, and that Jerry Lee Lewis didn't write the song. It was actually written by country pianist Roy Hall (under the pseudonym of Sunny David) and a black musician named Dave Williams. Apparently, Hall was first to record the song in 1955 for Decca. Then followed an R&B cover by Big Maybelle on Okeh records which was released later that same year. Finally, Lewis's version was released in 1957 on Sun records.

    The best song ever is "I Know That My Redeemer Liveth" by Georg Frederic Handel. I mean this song has been sung for 250 odd years and it still makes me cry.

    Sebatron Well-Known Member

    Yes this is what i suspected all along ,, which is why i didn't award full points to you.
    I mean if you had stated , ' Dave Williams , 1955 ' ... i may have awarded twice as many points as what i had awarded you....
    I had a suspicion that Jerry Lee Lewis didn't write it.
    The white guys were always ripping off the black guys back then.

    Yes i agree ,, it's a very moving song.
    Unfortunately we cannot accept that answer because it's a rather late entry. :cry:

    Keep trying though ,, everybody has a chance at winning..... some more of a chance than others ...... 8)

    In other words , two answers may have the same DATA but must be visually independent.
    …even just re-wording is cool….

    Hey All, Seb... sorry about the downtime last night PST. I hope this didn't mess up the party here (my bad). My appologies to all and I hope noone was effected. If we can take this into concideration, not count for this blooper I made that would be cool.

    Saturn's ring system is divided up into 7 major divisions with alphabetic designators in the order of discovery. Much of the elaborate structure of the rings is due to gravitational effects of nearby satellites. The major gap is called the Cassini divison - named after Giovanni Cassini who discovered the gap in 1676.

    Saturn has four main groups of rings and three fainter, narrower ring groups. The gaps are called divisions.
