* This song from the late 60's was written for Francis Ford Coppola's, You're A Big Boy Now, a coming-of-age film about an awkward young man looking for love in New York City. This band's frontman was responsible for the entire soundtrack, but was tasked to write this specific song for an important love scene. Unfortunately, the movie was largely ignored, but the song fared pretty well with a #15 entry on the Hot 100 chart. The song was also revived a couple of years later during an impromptu performance at Woodstock in 1969. Name the band and the frontman who recorded the song...and extra credit for the name of the song...
*This artist was a member of a somewhat successful band, who had a big hit in 1973...one that is inscribed in our collective memory banks. But he came out with a song as part of his solo efforts in 1978...the song being about a man who dreams of owning a house and living away from his neighborhood. Problem is, he drinks too much and can't achieve his goal...drinking to forget what he doesn't have and never realizes he's a rolling stone with no direction. Some great sax on this track. Name the artist and song..
*This band might be considered a 'One-hit' wonder, as it is probably difficult to name another song by the band, because this track was hugely popular. They were more than a 1-hit band though. The band's lead singer wrote the song which is about depression. It took a few years to complete it as at first it had different lyrics with a refrain of 'laughing in the rain', which the artist knew was too familiar to the Neil Sedaka song, 'Laughter In The Rain'. The artist himself went through some dark times and it was then that the metaphor hit him...providing the name of the song and finishing the lyrics in one, single setting. Name the artist, the band and extra credit for the name of the 1992 track...
*After a most remarkable string of hits through 1969, this band released another brand new album, its fourth in less than 18 months. It made its way to #8 on the charts in 1970. The album consisted primarily of songs written by some of rock music's best, but at the time, unheralded, composers....Randy Newman, being one. The song we'll play, however, was written by Paul Williams. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song...
