*Very few rock & roll songs rival the sexual excitement and anticipation of this track originally recorded in 1965. It is a classic 3-chord rocker that became a garage rock anthem, one that would be covered by a number of great bands including The Doors, Jimi Hendrix and Patti Smith. The original version finds the lead vocalist doing his best Howlin' Wolf growl as he identifies the source of his lust. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song...
*The opening line of this song from 1982 makes it seem like it is going to be a love song to the woman identified in the title. However, a few lines into the track we learn that she's a heartbreaker. By the end of the song, we learn that she's been gone for nearly a year, leaving the poor guy a wreck. Keyboardist and founding member of the band actually thought the song might impress the girl who was the object of his desire. Name the band and the song...
*From the outset, this artist was extremely hard to pigeonhole into any one category. Was he country, blues or perhaps even retro-jazz? To him and fans it really didn't matter. His 1989 album almost certainly sidelined any career aspirations as a mainstream country artist, but probably openly invited and created an even broader fan base. This album shows vocals full of subtle nuance along with a brilliant band. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the album...
*Born in Southern Mississippi and raised in Alabama, this artist moved to Nashville to try and make it in country music in the late 60's. Since then his easygoing Gulf Coast persona has built not only a great catalogue of music, but a truly diversified business empire. Name the artist...
