* The 1st album produced after the artist and his entourage spent some time in the U.S. produced this classic track. The song had a couple of possible inspirations. It was either about the woman who traveled with the band, sewing costumes and repairing clothes...or....it may have been about all that the band experienced visiting clothing stores up and down the L.A. Strip and all the women they met throughout the process. Name the artist and the song if you can...

The song was inspired by the long winters in England (aren't they too long everywhere???), but on that day, it was sunny and it just released all of the built-up tension. I'll be playing a version of the song from another great performer who probably felt the same way. Name the artist who wrote the song and the track...

If you did not know. this band was the very first band to charge in excess of $100 for a ticket in an arena show environment. The year that happened was in 1994. A sellout soon led other bands to follow suit with similar prices. Name the band that started the run on our wallets...
