Song Quiz from Craig Looney’s Looney’s Tunes live show on April 4 , 2021 Show #125
* We'll enjoy a breakout hit from this bands very 1st album in 1972. It's difficult to make sense of the lyrics which seem to be about some combination of addiction, second chances and the inevitability of fate. The song doesn't so much make literal sense as it does creating a mood. Also, the band's 1st single...it was a big hit on both sides of the Atlantic...earning them a reputation for a category of music described as 'smart rock'. Any more and I'd just have to tell you...but name the band and song...
*We'll play a song with lyrics written by Bernie Taupin, who got the idea for title from a quote he read about Janis Joplin. No one knew that and interpreted the song to be about a famous actress until Taupin came through with the actual explanation. The song was dedicated to Ryan White by Elton John. Name the song and the actress everyone thought it was about...
*This track was basically a 'spaghetti western set to music' back in 1974...but it gave the band their theme song and gave rock a classic. As the perfect trifecta...it's also the band's name. Name the band and the song (It's also the name of the album)...
*We'll play a song that was on this band's last album that included Timothy B. Schmit who left shortly thereafter. The album also featured the appearance of Donald Fagan playing synthesizer on a couple of the album tracks and marked the band's move away from their previous sound for which they'd been known.
Name the band...
