Yay, Patti V, you've done it - you've answered correctly. It was Tommy James and the Shondells who first crooned the fabulous Crimson & Clover. 

.............................................................................

We've been listening to a lot of classic female rockers and crooners lately. Dolly Parton is a big hit in my family, as are Pat Benetar and Joan Jett. I like to tell myself that it's good for my little ladies, to hear these women really rocking out, and that it's almost a feminist statement that we are listening to them, when in reality, I just love singing along at the top of my lungs. 

One of my absolute favorite Joan Jett songs is Crimson & Clover.

I even created a pattern inspired by the marriage of that song and Tina's gorgeous Worthy Fingering. But, did you know that Joan Jett and her Blackhearts were NOT the first band to sing that song? Do you know who was (hint: it was in the 1960s)?

A. The Byrds

B. Cream

C. The Supremes

D. Tommy James & the Shondells

E. Herman's Hermits

The first one to answer with the correct band wins a weekend with that band! Just kidding - you'll win the Badge of Trivia Honor.
