Here’s a fun game – a public service of Zero to 180 – you can play with a group of friends:
- Get a time piece (or watch with a second hand)
- Click the triangle below to play “Weather Report” by The Tennors.
- Make note of how much time elapses before the first person in the room correctly identifies the Simon & Garfunkel song being covered/adapted by The Tennors.
- Optional: wage bets prior to playing the game.
An Exceptionally Brief History Behind the Song
The Tennors, who enjoyed a big hit in Jamaica in 1968 with “Ride Yu Donkey” on their own Tennors label, released “Hopeful Village” on Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle label in 1970 — and then returned to Treasure Isle three years later to record “Weather Report.”
