Song Quiz from Craig Looney’s Looney’s Tunes live show on August 30 , 2020 Show #94
* Doors guitarist, Robby Krieger wrote this track about the numerous times his girlfriend, and later wife, threatened to leave him. Lots of slamming doors in their relationship. The title of the track came from a phrase the legendary Duke Ellington popularized during his concerts. And while The Doors didn't have a bass player, they enlisted Jerry Scheff from Elvis Presley for this one. Name the tune
*This artist was very much a critic of his own singing voice, but he actually had a great voice that he eventually got comfortable flexing, as he covered different genres. Some of his ballads and blues tracks always sounded convincing when performing them. Name the artist.
*A great rock band was formed by a singer/songwriter, lead vocalist, guitarist and a keyboardist, vocalist, way back in 1969 in Los Angeles. The band survived 10 years before being broken up by one of the founders due to creative differences. As it turns out, he broke up the band shortly before his death. Surviving members re-formed in 1987. Name the two founders and the band.
*This artist was dating a movie star in the 70's and they went out with some friends to a posh L.A. restaurant. In the middle of the meal, the artist leaned over to his date and whispered...'I wrote a song for you.' No one really took notice as he sang the song softly to her as she started to cry. That is her story...but the artist has a far less romantic version, claiming the track is about a lot more than just women...including a love of soccer and Scotland and perhaps even his parents. Name the artist, the track and extra credit for his date's name...
