Song Quiz from Craig Looney’s Looney’s Tunes live show on April 10, 20022 Show #176
* This album from 1976 was this artist's greatest success in a very long career that is still going. The artist largely influenced by blues early on in his career actually transformed himself into a pop/rocker, picking up a new generation of listeners...not an easy thing to do...but it happened. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the album...
*We'll play a song with a message about global cooling (not warming) from 1974. It was this artists first foray into the issue of ecology as the scientific community said we were heading towards a new ice age. Not long after, the so-called experts reversed their course and claimed it was actually global warming on the horizon. Your clue is...that would make for some thin ice. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the song...
*This song was a personal favorite of all the songs he'd ever written...one that he loves performing with the band. It wasn't a huge hit, but people certainly know it. It wasn't a massive hit primarily because it was 6 minutes long...too long for significant radio play at the time in 1988. It's a song about trying to find out what happened to the one's first love. The artist went on record saying that it is probably for the better to never figure that out and leave things as a nice memory. The song was released in 1988...kind of a moody song. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song.
*We'll play a real mood piece from a great member of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young...meaning, of course, you have a 1 in 4 chance. The song was part of a solo album in 1970 with tender vocals influenced by Tim Hardin, and included guest drummer, Ringo Starr. Lyrically, the track is a heartbreaking farewell to an ill-fated love affair. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the song.
