*This band had personnel changes that actually somewhat changed the style of the band back in the mid-70's. The original lineup though, reunited in 1989 for an album that went gold and represented a swing back to the bluesy boogie of their early albums. This reunion brought back the original lead singer as well. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the 1989 album and the original lead singer...
*We'll enjoy the second of two songs by this great band that put them on the rock and roll map in 1964. Their record company pressured them to follow up hits quickly, which created what the lead singer described as 'an assembly line of songs". The song we'll play is a lusty rocker where the guy can't stand to be away from his girl even for a minute. He called it, "A neurotic song-youthful, obsessive and sexually possessive. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song and the lead singer...
*A musician by the name of Warren Pash was trying to make it in the music business in Los Angeles and was working on a song called 'I Need You To Need Me', but he didn't like the title. While driving on Ventura Boulevard, he saw a movie billboard for a 1980 movie starring Don Knotts and Tim Conway. He turned around, went home and wrote the song with a new title and chorus. The song was recorded by this great group in 1981. Name the song and the band that made it a big hit...
*This track won a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in the early 90's, beating out Oleta Adams, Mariah Carey, Amy Grant and Whitney Houston. It was also nominated for Record of the Year, but lost to 'Unforgettable'. It's a song about conversation rumors and the effect it has on the singer and the guy she's secretly in love with... Name the artist and the song...
