Trivia Time

The biggest movie hits of 1965 were The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins, both starring Julie Andrews. Other hits included Goldfinger and What's New, Pussycat?

In 1965, the Rolling Stones scored their first #1 record. Keith Richards wrote rock 'n' roll's most famous riff in a Florida hotel room. The defiant lyrics secured a place in history for the "Bad Boys of Rock." What was the name of the song that articulated the anger of youth culture and spent four weeks at the top of the charts in the summer of 1965?
