Didn't the Ray Stevens song/album "Everything is Beautiful" come out in the sixties as well?

Love the "Laugh-in" quote

I know this will reveal my age group but I remember watching Laugh-in on live TV and the 'Very interesting... but ______' catchphrase of Arte Johnson's German soldier had LOTS of variety -- sometimes you'd see him several times in one show and the final word would be different each time.

Agree! And as a catchphrase, I recall using "Verrry interesting!" by itself. Preferably with a German accent.

Agree with both of these. In fact, I watched the episode where Billy Graham guest starred. At the end of the show he recited John 3:16 from the bible. Arte came on and said, "Very interrresting...and very true. Think about it."

And what is wrong with revealing one's age?

Funny how I got the best results from this one out of the different decade catchphrase quizzes and I was born in the 80's. It's probably because I don't live in the U.S. and these are more historical.

First of the Catchphrase tests I get at least one point so far. I count this as a win.

I'm a child of the '60s but I never heard "visualize world peace" back in those days. Visualize wasn't a catch phrase at all in that time period. I googled it, and the article I read said it began in the 1980s.

I only remember a joke version of this phrase I once saw on a t-shirt : "visualize whirled peas." On the back I believe was "stop the violins"
Level 77

I agree with ander217. Quizmaster, can you produce documentation showing the use of Visualize World Peace before the 1980's? I cannot find any earlier reference. I lived through the period and never heard that exact quote until many years later. Of course, the Swinging Sixties were all about peace & love but the quote itself is of a later vintage.

Didn't Robin Williams say "if you remember the 60s you weren't really there"?

Think that was David Crosby.

Quiz master may have been thinking of "Give Peace a Chance" by John Lennon (but I'm not sure whether that was a '60s or '70s phrase.

Lennon released this song in 1969.

Still no reply from QM. Visualize world peace was NOT from the '60s. Make love not war was about the closest we came to it.

What about: "Whatever gets you through the night"?

Google Ngram viewer suggests that "Visualize World Peace" became common only in the 80s.

Wow I was born in the 90's but got all of these with two minutes to spare. I guess all these phrases have become part of American culture over the years.

How did I do so much better on this than 90s and 2000s, when I grew up in them and didn't even exist in the 70s? I guess I'm just retro

Yeah it be like that with retro stuff cuz of the collective nostalgia factor
