*This Scottish musician enjoyed some success with his early group, however after the band disbanded, legal issues meant he could not release any material for three years. Disputes got resolved and he released two songs in a row that became smash hits, including one we'll play this evening. The artist credits his fellow Scot, wife and hairdresser for helping him through all the bad times as she stuck by him through thick and thin. The year was 1978. Name the artist and extra credit for the two songs released that year...
*This song got its name from an actress who was dating the keyboard player of the band. But the actress was around long enough to inspire this track. They did break up not long after the song was released in 1982. The actress would go on to date other musicians, one in the early 90's and had a few dates with a former Beatle in 2007. Quite a bit going on here... Name the band, the song, the actress and extra credit for anything else you can answer...
*2013 brought the release of an album by this artist paying tribute to this city's magnificent soul tradition, but mostly to honor Al Green and producer Willie Mitchell. The album used the studio's house band with the entire album being cut in just 3 days. Name the artist, the city and the name of the album...
*Nile Rodgers was a producer for the disco band, Chic and also branched out from there, producing hits for Diana Ross and Madonna. But in 1983 he produced an album for this artist's 15th studio album...one that had quite the funky sound. The title track tackles the subject of pretending to be happy when one is actually sad...something that many people do regularly. Name the artist and the album, which is also the name of the song we'll share...
