*Crosby, Stills & Nash, one of the great groups of our lifetime (with or without Neil Young), had more than their share of problems, egos and yes, girlfriends. This song by one of the members is about his then-girlfriend. It started out as a long narrative poem about their relationship, but it poured out over many months and several filled notebooks. Lyrics aside, getting the music to fit was difficult. The title of the track is a play on words. Multi-parts to guess here. Name the artist, the person of his affection and extra credit for the name of the song...
*Did you ever skip school? I waited for college to start skipping a class or two, but it might have been easier to do in high school in England in 1967. A couple of schoolmates in this band would skip class and end up at this destination,,,the subject of the song's title. The song ended up being misinterpreted as many thought the mates were skipping school to well...get high. That, however, was not the case as the pair of bandmates that wrote it, claim to this day. Name the band and the name of the song...
*Unlike another song by this great 60's band that is often thought of as a love song, but it deals with the unrequited , slightly obsessive kind. The track we'll play is a perfect wedding song, as it is about unrelenting devotion. This track was the 2nd most played song on American radio and television in the 20th century, trailing only "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" by the Righteous Brothers. Think of a popular 60's band that expressed love in any number of their songs. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song we'll enjoy later today...
*The Beatles started Apple records that gave them more control over their recording destinies (while it lasted of course). But they also invited other bands to record there as well. This band was the first additional band signed to Apple.
That band also had a very accomplished producer, an artist himself, to further groom this band's most excellent and distinctive voices. We'll play a track from that album from 1971. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the producer...
