*This excellent band burst on the scene in the early '80s with one of the most compelling presentations of rock and roll ever. Their compilation album of 1987 chronicled so very many of their singles that led many to believe they were true masters of the 'rock single.' The track that we'll play takes an old classic from a duo in 1965 and kind of puts a reggae spin on it. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the track...
*This 60's rock band was looking for a name and came up with a rather unique marketing play, They chose a name that was alphabetically close to a most popular band at the time, securing their records in prime viewing area as result. Name the band...the band and the group they wanted their records to be sold...close to...
*One of the frontmen of this great band wrote a track after hearing the Bob Dylan track, 'Ballad In Plain D' on the radio. Just before the track ended, Dylan came up with a phrase that would be turned into the title of one of their big hits, and one that remains the writer's absolute favorites. Name the band, the frontman and extra credit for the name of the track...
*We'll enjoy a most outstanding song from this band, released in 1980...a song that showed aplenty their signature blend of Jazz, Rock and Pop elements. The song tells a tale of the allure and dangers of instant fame and success. The title alludes to the rapid and electrifying nature of this ascent. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the band...
