*We'll play a track written by the drummer of this great band. When it charted, all four members of the group had written at least one Top 10 hit either in the U.S. or UK. A critique of radio stations for becoming commercialized and repetitive song playing (and losing listeners to the likes of MTV), was all the inspiration to write it he needed. Name the band, the song writer and the song....
*In 1969, this great British band released what would become one of their most iconic hits ever. It was rightly the 'A-side' on the 45. Many 'B-Side' tracks are second thought, second-tier tracks to fill space, but this song became significantly popular as well. The track on the single is shorter than the one on the album and was released the day one of the band's founding members passed away. Brought in to play organ and French horn on the song...Al Kooper. Name the band, the song and extra credit for the 'A-side' track name...
*This group has sold well over 40,000,000 albums and has enjoyed at least 6 #1 hit singles. They didn't particularly want to, but felt compelled to make music videos in the 1980's, because videos were becoming the rage. They are the only Caucasian act to ever top Billboard's R&B singles chart. Name the band...
*We'll play a track from this band's first album written by one of the members in 1969. It's a great example of alliteration, something the writer learned about in high school English class....specifically his 10th grade teacher in Tampa, Florida, who happened to be a real knockout. Sometimes a trio, sometimes a quartet, name the band and the song that made its mark in the name of alliteration...
