*The incredible songwriting team of Holland-Dozier-Holland wrote one great hit after another for The Supremes, The Four Tops and so many other acts on the Motown label. But they intentionally wrote a rock song for The Supremes. It was about a woman who knows her fellow doesn't love her but isn't man enough to break up with her. All she can do is plead with him to set her free. Another band covered the song in 1968 and took it to #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. Name the song and the band that covered it...
*This band's guitarist wrote and sang lead on this song that is about the captain of a ship who is sick and fears he is going to lose his vessel. The song came to him after he prayed one night with a P.S. where he asked God to give him a song that would touch the hearts of people that he wanted to get to. He arose at 3:00 A.M. and wrote this inspired song released in 1970. Name the popular midwestern arena band and the song...
*This artist had a paternal grandfather who was a popular vaudeville performer known as Peg Leg Jones, as he had a wooden leg. She almost pursued a career as a stenographer, but her Mother stopped that and put her back on a musical course. She once had a high-profile romance with Tom Waits, but she ended up marrying a French musician. The big problem with that? She hardly spoke any French and he hardly spoke any English. They later divorced. Name the artist...
*The year was 1967...the Summer of Love and San Francisco was THE place for hippies. Scott McKenzie's well-known song, San Francisco...Be Sure To Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair, was a popular ode to the city at the time, but a group from England gave them another song to add to the flower culture movement. The song actually takes a stand against the Vietnam war and the band hoped that they could raise awareness enough to inspire an end to the war. Name the band and the song...
