Song Quiz from Craig Looney’s Looney’s Tunes live show on October 10, 2021 Show #151
*This Northen European group's guitarist wrote a track we'll share today. Not originally written in English, when the song got translated, the writer wrote down the first line incorrectly and that error made it all through the recording process as the singer sang the incorrect line. No problem though as the song became a #1 hit. The word in question in the first line? Goddess was the correct word...Goddness was actually sung. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song...
*This song from 1973 is one of this band's most famous. It was inspired by the events leading up to the final date of their U.S. tour...one fraught with problems. Most of the band flew to Memphis to do the gig, but the guitarist decided to drive while his guitar with all the other equipment went on the plane. The airline lost the guitar. That wasn't the only thing that went wrong, but they got it all together and put on a great concert that included a bit of a jam segment with Joe Walsh. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song...
*In 1960 this artist formed his first band, The Cavaliers with 3 friends. He played the drums and harmonica in the band, but it wasn't until the band's breakup a year later that he embarked on a singing career. He developed some famous performing antics as a singer...because he was no longer bound by playing a guitar or piano. Name the artist...
*This artist's career received a huge boost when Roy Orbison chose to record a duet together. It won a Grammy for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals in 1989. The song was also used in the Jon Cryer film, Hiding Out. Name the artist and again...extra credit for the song title...
