* This song was written by Randy Newman in 1960. The Tokens recorded it in 1965. Gene Pitney recorded it in 1966. Neither version was very popular. In 1968, this band turned in an excellent version on their 'Child Is Father To The Man' album. Name the band and song
*A song originally composed and produced way back in 1921 has flourished and endured through the years as a jazz standard (although I have a difficult time placing it in the jazz genre). By 2018, the song had been recorded over 400 different times by an amazing list of artists. Two legendary guitarists that you would not normally pair as collaborators, actually got together and recorded a terrific version in 1990. Their version is just pure fun....Name the artists and song...
*This artist wrote a song with his brother and recorded it in 1986. An instrument in the title of the track is very much featured in the song. The track was used in the 2009 movie, 'World's Greatest Dad', starring Robin Williams. The artist made a cameo appearance in the film and played an alternate acoustic version arranged for the film's soundtrack. Name the artist, the song and extra credit for the instrument...
*A song originally written and recorded by singer-songwriter, Fred Neil in 1966 was not very successful when released 2 years later. Another artist recorded it in 1969 with huge success, including a Grammy Award after it was featured in the film Midnight Cowboy and a bit later in 1994's Forrest Gump. Name the artist and song....
