Song Quiz from Craig Looney’s Looney’s Tunes live show on May 16, 2021 Show #131
*This song was written for the 1967 Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical. The version by this band was recorded and released 2 years later in 1969. The band was comprised of 3 lead singers all vying to sing lead on a song that would top the Billboard Hot 100 charts. And they did just that. The song we'll play was one of their #1 charting records. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song...
*This Eagles' album in 1976 was the first album with new bandmate, Joe Walsh. Joe was the primary writer of 2 songs on the album, one of them being, Life In the Fast Lane and the track I'll play later today. The song, according to Joe is kind of 'a melancholy reflection on his life at the time. Name the album and extra credit for the song...
*Songwriting credits probably created as much or more controversy between bandmembers than other stumbling blocks. The track we'll play showed songwriting credits going to the entire band, but 3 out of the 5 members largely admit that the credit should go to Tom Petty and Bob Dylan. With 5 verses and a total length of 5+ minutes...it is this band's longest song. Name the band and extra credit for the song name..
*This Elton John song has a very dark, kind of Leon Russell influence and a story about a lunatic ranting on visiting day at the asylum. Many thought the song was about Richard Nixon, but Bernie Taupin said that is simply not the case....claiming the song is not about anyone in particular. The album with this song is the first album to feature a guitar player in Elton's band. Name the song...
