Ready for fun fact about a verse in Eat Steak, a song from Reverend Horton Heat? Ever wonder what some crazy lyrics say? And you believe the words you are singing are the correct lyrics? I heard a funny one the other day. Here is part of the song that is most misheard : “Eat Steak, Eat Steak, Like the werewolves steer”. Actually the correct lyrics are “Eat Steak, Eat Steak eat a big old steer “. You can hear where “werewolf ” sounds like “big old ” right? I love finding fun facts. I would like to continue with a little trivia this month. If you can answer all seven questions correctly the first one to do so gets a peaceful treatment at “Peace of Mind”spa. Courtesy of Keile Holley owner and operated at the salon. With that in mind let’s get started:

Q#1: On what label did Buddy Holly have his 1st release? Q#2: Who managed to cover a version of “Ooby Dooby” that was released before Roy Oribson’s original was released on Sun Records? Q#3: On what label did the Everly Brothers, have their first release? Q#4: Which Rockabilly Hall of Fame guitarists and songwriter co – wrote and recorded the first hit version of “SuzieQ”? (Hint there are three). Q#5: What early Rockabilly artist wrote the song “Blue Suede Shoes”? Q#6: As a young girl during the depression, Wanda Jackson lived in what state & city? Q#7: What record company did Jerry Lee Lewis become apart of in 1956?

Remember the first to answer correctly on-line at Modestoview ‘s Facebook page wins a spa treatment from Peace of Mind Spa. Look for the Rockabilly question and post your answers.
