Song Quiz from Craig Looney’s Looney’s Tunes live show on June 19, 20022 Show #183
* Kenny Loggins co-wrote this track with the lead singer from this band that recorded the most famous version of the song. Loggins also released his own recording of the song the same year as the band did...1978. The lyrics concept...2 people meet in a restaurant...2 people who had a passionate relationship long ago. To the man, the affair was the best thing in his life...to the woman, it was fun, but it was time to move on. Clearly in this case, love makes the man a fool. Name the co-writer, the band he was in and extra credit for the name of the track...
*This song is about a woman who is in pursuit of happiness but never gives anything a long enough time to make her happy. She gets bored too easily...she's just plain flighty. Radio stations usually played an edited version omitting the last verse...a verse that pretty well sums up what the whole tune is about. "Everyday in your indigo eyes, I watch the sunset but I don't see it rise, Moonlight and stars in your strawberry wine, You'd take the world but you won't take the time. (Didn't Boone's Farm sell Strawberry Wine?) Oh well, name the band and song from 1975...
*By the time this artist finally put this song on tape, it was already 4 years old in the mid-70's, as he collated material for his groundbreaking solo debut album. He amassed quite the catalogue of songs that his former band had declined to record as a group. The track we'll play is about whenever a relationship hits a down point. The song gave him a chance to realize that if he felt that somebody had let him down, then there was a good chance he was letting someone else down. Lots here...name the artist, his former band, the groundbreaking 1970 album and extra credit for the name of the song....
*The title of this album is about this artist attempting to regain his faith in himself and others after being betrayed by people he thought he could trust (his former borther-in-law/manager stole millions of dollars from the singer and his lawyers failed to protect him). The song was originally titled 'The Motorcycle Song' about middle-aged successful guys getting themselves in biker gear and buying Harleys. But in the end and with a little bit of work it became a song about the artist's relationship with his then wife. Name the artist and the song released in 1993..
