*Utilizing the producing talents of Jeff Lynne for a half decade, this artist decided it was time to strip things back for a 1994 album. He engaged Def Jam founder, Rick Rubin for this album and put together a team of musicians anchored by a couple of his notable bandmates from his past, achieving a sound that was lean and graceful. Name the born in Florida artist...
*The lyrics of this 1970 track suggest that the person singing is lost and feels like an outsider in their own life. The song can be interpreted as a call for help or guidance during a time of confusion and is intended to be positive and uplifting. The track actually speaks of the desire to be taken to someone to find guidance and direction. Name the artist who actually lived sometimes in the very conditions he sang about...
*The 1971 demo version of this track featured Flo and Eddie (most notable from their stint with The Turtles) on backing vocals and is one of this band's earliest songs. The better-known version kicks off side 2 of the band's exceptional 1975 album as a jazzier, more Latin-flavored vein. The chorus sounds a bit like it belongs on some old puppy love single from 1963. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the track.
*This excellent ballad from 1973 was written by the band's lead singer/guitarist and is open to interpretation and the writer prefers it that way. He simply and politely refuses to tell us who or what the song is about. The "you" in the song (and title) could be a literal person, but it could be the demands of touring....the road can be draining, but the shows, exhilarating. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the track. Good luck on this one, as I know these are all a bit tough...
