Sam’s (A.)D. Kidlit Trivia Top 10 Hit Music Countdown

Hello, Gang, and welcome back to Casey Kidlit’s Top 5 Hit Music Countdown

Here’s the all-time Kidlit Hit Music Countdown. Your job is to know the connection between each song and kidlit. Numbers 1 & 10 are easy and obvious and are worth zero points. The others are worth 10 points each, except Number 8 which is nearly impossible and is worth 10,000 Agama Dollars. (That’s a hint, folks.)

1. Little Red Riding Hood by Sam the Sham & The Pharoahs

2. A Boy Named Sue by Johnny Cash

3. Red Alert by Kaira de Leon

4. Little Green Apples by  Mr. Glen Campbell

5. Mama Don’t Allow by Bo Diddley

6. Stay Up Late by the Talking Heads

7.  Tin Man by America

8. Nagasaki by Cab Calloway [Note: The song predates WWII, I believe.]

9.  Mountain Music by Alabama

10. House at Pooh Corner by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

  2. Obviously, I got 1 and 10. I also got 7 and 9, but I think that 7 was almost as obvious as 1 and 10.

    Shel Silverstein wrote “A Boy Named Sue”? Wow … I had no idea, but it does seem like his style, looking back on it.
