Song Quiz from Craig Looney’s Looney’s Tunes live show on October 17, 2021 Show #152
*In this 1968 song, there are secrets the singer simply will not reveal to the girl he loves. He's obsessed with her, thinks about her all the time and tormented because he can't have her. This L.A. band charted frequently between 1965 and 1975. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song (one with a time reference in the title)...
*This single released in 1967 from a great album is considered one of the monumental cuts of this great band. The songwriter wrote the music after attending a Jimi Hendrix concert, developing a bass riff afterward, with an assist from one of his famous bandmates. A great song, Hendrix thought and even played it at some of his concerts, while expressing his highest praise for each of the bandmates of this famous group. Name the band and the song...
*This band formed in Springfield, Missouri in 1972. Moderate success on their 1st album, motivated them to album #2 that yielded this notable track about a woman who is in pursuit of happiness but never gives anything a long enough time to make her happy. Bored, flighty or indifferent...it's just not going to happen. The name of the song is the female subject of the track, and was released in 1974. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song...
*This lazy, laid-back celebration of love on a summer's day originated when the writer attempted to rewrite The Supremes' Baby Love...though it turned into something quite different. The song was released with short term expectations of at least a Top Ten showing on the charts, but the track actually had a very long and prosperous run for years, even decades. Name the NYC band formed in 1965 lasted 4 years...with 2 later reunions...one of which carries on even today...Extra credit for the name of the song...
