Anyone for a little Music trivia questions
1. What was Sylvia's last name?
2> where on earth did Timothy go?
The only Clue is that both answers are found in songs

Thanks for having a go
Answer 1.. Sylvia's last name is Avery. It's from the Dr Hook song " Sylvia's mother" If her mother was Mrs avery then she must be sylvia avery
Second answer is a little more complex but it has an interesting History. The answer is in a song by the bouys " timothy" written ( I think) back in the eighties.
Now according to the bouys When they first presented their material to a recording company for publication the company didn't think they ( the Bouys) had any commercial value. So basiclly it was " don't call us we will call you!"
So The Bouys packed up and returned to thier home town, there they decided that if they could write a song so shocking that it would get them banned that would bring them the publicity/ recognition. So they wrote " Timothy" It's about three kids/ teenagers who got trapped in a mine/ cave. The rescusers knew there were three of them down there, however when they reached them they could only find two of them hence the question " where on earth did timothy go?"
well as things go Kids caught on to it straight away and started buying it like mad. Radio stations strated giving it air play and diners etc started playing it on thier juke boxes. all the while not taking notice of what the lyrics were about.
So "Where on earth did timothy go"
That's right ! They ate him!!!
goggle " where on earth did timothy go?" and it will give you the story.
That's it in a Nutshell
