*This great track from 2003 won the Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. The group performed the song at the 2005 Grammy Show. The lyrics were written by a bandmember as a prayer as he was attempting to deal with the pain of losing a loved one...a son at an early age.. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the track...
*This artist let many of his strong political feelings loose in many of his songs. The track we'll play is an angry, acidic attack on then US President Richard Nixon, who resigned 2 weeks after the release of this artist;s album that included this track. The album won the 1974 Album of the year Grammy in 1974. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the album and the song...
*We'll go back to 1964 for a track written by Harold Eugene Clark and Roger McGuinn of The Byrds. The song wasn't released by this band until 1968 and was a huge hit for the group. The Byrds demo of the song was released a year later in 1969...but that one we all know and love is by the original band...a great group of the 60;s. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song...
*Another artist who never shied away from politics in his music gave us this classic track in 1970. The song is about racism in the American South, with references to slavery and the Ku Klux Klan. Another band from the south wrote a response to the song as they didn't appreciate the generalization referenced in the track. It was a 'good-natured' answer to the song as they were actually fans of the artist who did the song in question. Lot's to guess here...
Name the artist and his politically charged song...Name the band that responded in kind and the name of their song...
