Music Trivia Question for the Day – September 12, 2012


 

The previous question was:

Q: What was Motown’s first hit?

The answer is

Money – Barrett Strong

Recorded in 1959, Money reached number 2 on the charts.  Beatle fans will instantly recognize this song as they did a cover version in 1962 with Peter Best on drums.

Money – The Beatles

Interestingly, Berry Gordy, Motown’s driving force and owner,  wrote this song, which helped turned Motown into the hit factory it was known for in the 1960’s and beyond.

No one guessed the answer, so I am unable to bestow my newly minted award on anyone.  Thanks to Rebecca for designing the award.

Today’s question, and we will continue in Motown mode is:

Q: What was Motown’s first million selling hit?
