* Robby Krieger, guitarist of The Doors wrote this song we'll play tomorrow. He originally named the song something else based on fights he had with his girlfriend. The lyrics were a bit more severe until, Jim Morrison, of all people, showed some restraint and insisted on changing the lyrics and ultimately, the song title. At the end of the track, Morrison chants, 'Stronger Than Dirt' from the popular Ajax commercial. Name that tune!
*The country of Spain made a fine contribution to the rock scene back in the year of 1966. The colorful song I refer to finds the singer utterly flummoxed by a girl who has left him. He wants her back, but then considers that she'll only leave him again. Name the tune...the title of which confirms the shade of the color.
*Mick Jagger went into a local drugstore of a town on their first US tour in 1964. He wanted a cherry coke (back then, it was a regular coke with real cherries in it), but the drugstore, despite having soda fountains, did not have cherry cokes. A local character, by the name of Mr. Jimmy, standing behind Jagger made a comment...a line that became a famous Stones tune...Name that tune!
*This singer/songwriter back in the 60's/70's became more famous writing songs for others like The Carpenters, Helen Reddy and even 1 track for David Bowie. But the group he wrote the most songs for was Three Dog Night.
He is still alive today at 80 years old. Name the singer/songwriter
