Song Quiz from Craig Looney’s Looney’s Tunes live show on September 12, 2021 Show #147
* We'll enjoy a track from 1979 about men who take advantage of lonely single women. While the men in the song take on a predator role, the woman appears to compromise her principles by putting herself in a bad situation. Her shoes, which apparently are high-heeled (and very uncomfortable) with "pretty little straps around the ankles are a metaphor for this compromise.
Name the band (one that was flying high, but about to crash and breakup) and extra credit for the song title...
*With his choice of dark glasses and plaintive voice, this artist gave the impression that he was always longing and sometimes miserable, which was not the case. We'll play his last big hit as his career faded fast, but other great artists cited him as one of their huge influences and had him join in on various projects. A Rock And Roll HOF inductee...he passed too early in 1988 at the age of 52.
Name the artist...
*This song is about a real condition...an infectious disease for a type of pet that sometimes affects young children. The actual intended meaning of the song (sexual in nature) is something quite different. Name the artist and the song from 1977...
*We'll go to a song that was one of five tracks included in this band's demo tape, trying to get a record contract. It worked...it actually started a bidding war with record labels for the rights to sign them. Name the band...a popular one from the mid-seventies and beyond...
