*The great composer/writer, Phil Spector had help writing this track...written specifically for the group, The Ronettes, who first recorded it in 1966. But this more popular version released in 1969 is the one we'll play. It comes from a group and it's perceived leader who idolized Spector. Ironically, the leader had no involvement in this song...proving that the band was simply not a 'one-trick' pony. Name the song, the band and the missing participant...
*We'll enjoy a track from 1979 that is about finding meaning in life through serving God, as at the time of its writing, the artist had become a born-again Christian. John Lennon thought the song to be embarrassing and wrote kind of a rebuttal track as a response to it. Name the artist and the song...
*This group was notorious for shunning concert performances, but their improbable live reunion in the mid-90's eventually turned into a full-fledged reunion album. Fans of the group had gone 2 decades without even hope of a new record and some even worried they might not be as good as they were...something that might tarnish the band's legacy. Well that certainly did not happen and they are still going strong today. Name the band...
*Go back to 1967 and consider that melodic folk tunes were being transformed into electric folk rockers. Bob Dylan's tunes were prime targets and this band did it better than anyone. Dylan's 1964 nondescript tune got electrified for this band's fourth album in 1967 and while as a single it stalled at #30 on the charts in '67, it has endured as a rock classic through the years. Name the band and the song...
