Trivia 8/21

trivia 8/21
Date Palm trees in Iraq are passed down through generations as part of family legacies. The trees are given individual names, have carefully recorded personal histories, and are considered a basic part of family wealth.

1. What did Billboard pick as the number one album of the decade of the sixties ?
2. How many times was Sugar Ray Leonard forced into "retirement" due to
eye injuries ?
3. What media company's logo is a black dog whose left eye is a five-pointed star ?
4. What president did the nutty middle brother in Arsenic and Old Lace believe himself to be ?
5. Name the tune from Hairspray with the name of a city in the title.
6. What's the proper name for the little plastic tip at the end of a shoelace ?
7. COMPAQ, the computer company, was merged with what other company ?
8. What are they;
"A motion for every emotion", an oozing symbol of the age of Aquarius, an illuminated glass urn...........
the Alka Seltzer jingle, "Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz", was written by Barry Manilow
2. four
3. sirius sattellite radio
6. aglet
7. hewlet-packard
8. LAVA-LITE (acceptable; Lava Lamp)
Although we learned recently from another TorC that Manilow wrote quite a few famous jingles, this wasn't one of them.
This one was penned by Tom Dawes, who gained fame when his band The Cyrkle, recorded a hit called Red Rubber Ball, written by Paul Simon.
The Cyrkle opened for the Beatles during their 1966 summer tour
