* We'll dip into one of this artist's most successful albums. The artist has long been involved with the environmental movement doing concerts to support Forest , Oil, Mining and Water production since the mid-70's. Her tour bus runs on biofuel. Another passion is supporting the Rhythm & Blues Foundation, started to provide health benefits and royalty reform for the pioneer generation of R & B artists. Name the artist...
*This artist released numerous singles from an album that sold over 11 Million copies in the early 70's. The song bemoans the fact that she and the man she loves can't be together and more than hinted that people, in general, were becoming more disconnected from each other. Rather timeless lyrics I suppose. This album was generally noted for ushering in the 'singer/songwriter' genre. Name the artist, the album and extra credit for the song...
*This album debuted at #1 in the U.S. in 2007 after a last minute rule change by Billboard, that effectively blocked Britney Spears highly anticipated 'Blackout' album from topping the chart. But this album won the band 2 Grammy Awards and became the band's 6th #1 album. Selling well over 3 Million copies in the U.S. alone that year...it was the highest selling album of that year....Name the band and the album...
*This track from Pink Floyd was largely considered by many to be about drugs, but Roger Waters, who wrote the lyrics debunked that immediately. The lyrics are about what he felt like as a child when he was sick with a fever.
And it is a feeling that he periodically got as an adult. David Gilmour states that the song can be divided into two sections...dark and light...we'll explore that a little later today. Name the song...
