Song Quiz from Craig Looney’s Looney’s Tunes live show on July 26 , 2020 Show #89
* There is a Mexican border town surrounding El Paso, TX that is the subject of this 1989 track from The Doobie Brothers. Perhaps it was a cool place to visit back then...but allow me to share my personal story from my one and only visit there in 2012. Name the song if you can.
*I'll play a track that was written by Walter Becker and Donald Fagen for Steely Dan in 1973. A cover of the track was made and released 40 years later by this great artist who has collaborated with Fagen on numerous occasions. Name the artist and extra credit for the track name.
*The Everly Brothers were the 'cat's pajamas' back in the 60's. Songs like All I Have To Do Is Dream, Cathy's Clown, Bye Bye Love and Wake Up Little Suzie made staked them to incredible fame. But they did a track in 1965 that you may not know, unless you were a fan of country rock band, Poco, who covered it in 1982. We'll play the Poco version. This is a tough one, and kudos to you if you can name the track...
*In the mid-50's, when this exceptional artist was only 7 years old, his Father was called away for military service, which had been deferred earlier for Medical School. At the conclusion of his Father's service, Dad volunteered for a mission setting up bases in Antarctica. Dad just found it extremely difficult to transition back to domestic life and in 1972, divorce came to the family of the artist. The artist's Father, became the subject (2 years after the divorce) of the track we'll play today. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the song...
