British Invasion Rock Music Quiz
Montana Senior News, Idaho Senior Independent Aug./Sept. 2016
The year 1963 marked a memorable era in pop music history known as The British Invasion. That year American disc jockeys played their first Beatles’ recordings and teens from coast to coast could not hear enough of it. The incredible response nationwide to their Mersey Sound opened the way for the Fab Four’s televised performance on the Ed Sullivan Show in February the following year and America’s music scene has never been the same. The invasion may have started with the Beatles but it by no means ended there.

Soon the voices of other artists popular in Great Britain were heard almost exclusively on the nation’s airwaves. Seemingly overnight, the names of vocalists Dusty Springfield and Petula Clark as well as bands such as the Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds, and the Dave Clark Five became as familiar to music-loving teens as those of Elvis Presley, Ricky Nelson, and The Four Seasons. So dust off those LPs, tap into those old memories, and before you know it you'll be humming, singing, and dancing to those '60s classics from across the pond.

All of the British performers listed below took part in the invasion. (And yes, the Nashville Teens really were a British not an American rock group.) See if you can match each of these musical artists with the song that individual or band made famous.
