Song Quiz from Craig Looney’s Looney’s Tunes live show on April 11 , 2021 Show #126
*The Zombies were a popular band back in the 60's. Two members had their hands all over a song we'll play.
The bass player wrote the song while the keyboard player released it as a single with another band. The track, released as a single was barely over 2 minutes long. We'll play a 6 minute version. Name both the band that recorded it and the song...
*This band got their start in London as three artists got together at London Central High School...a school for children of U.S. military personnel. Once the band got back to the US they strung one hit after another together until 1977 when one of the original members decided he'd had enough of the road life. You probably know the band, but name the member who left and took another musical direction...
*Mansfield, Ohio would not be known as a 'hotbed' for rock and roll artists, but they received some notoriety from this garage band who had the luck to record this song and a promotor that got the record played across the country...and that is when it actually shot all the way up to #2 on the Hot 100 chart. Name the band and song....
*Graham Gouldman, who later founded the band 10cc was a prolific songwriter who came up with songs for The Hollies, Cher, The Shadows and Herman's Hermits. And...he wrote a hit song that was originally recorded by The Yardbirds (a title track for their album) in 1965. We'll play a cover of song by Chris Isaak, recorded some 22 years later. Name the song...
