  1. Surely Steely Dan was an acceptable answer to #1

    Pasadena

    If my memory serves me well, it was a minor hit in the UK for a band named "Buster" sometime in the 70's. A completely different song named simply "Pasadena" was a hit for a band named "The Temperance Seven" sometime in the 60's but that has got absolutely nothing to do with your question
  3. Uncle Joe, Thanks for that. Sent you a PM.
  4. I just asked one of the ladies in the office if she knew of a song with August in the title and straight away she rattled off "Hot August Night" and "August Moon". So I did a quick google to check and sure enough "Hot August Night" is not a song title but an album title. However, "August Moon" is a song recorded by Alan Ayers - until 5 minutes ago, I'd never heard of him.
  5. I've never heard of it so I thought I'd try and get it from WinMX. I was at number 98 in the queue! It must have suddenly become very popular - I don't usually have any trouble with 60's songs.
  6. Thanks everybody for your Thursday songs. Anybody want to do songs with month names in the title? I'll start the ball rolling with: "January" by Pilot
  7. November 29th 1917 - Merle Travis born 1933 - John Mayall Born 1965 - Colorado governor John A. Love decreed this day as "Rolling Stones Day" after the group sold out a concert at Denver Coliseum. 1975 - Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" tops the UK charts.
  8. I've got no idea. Please tell. I remember "Black is Black" by Los Bravos. No connection I suppose?
  9. I'll second that - fantastic album - all those words, including, "I swear I found the key to the universe in the engine of an old parked car".
  10. Didn't Dylan invent rap when he sang "Subterranean Homesick Blues" back in 1965? For reggae, listen to "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" from the album "Bob Dylan at Budokan". For jazz try "If Dogs Run Free" from the album "New Morning". For the classical style try "All the Wild Horses" from "Self Portrait". For metal listen to "When the Night Comes Falling From the Sky" from "The Bootleg Series". Punk - is that where you spit on the audience? - I don't thing he tried that. Anyway you get the point. All very successful - at least I like them. I suppose Bob does too!
  11. I was thinking that lots of song titles include days of the week: Sunday Girl - Blondie Monday Monday - Mamas & Papas Ruby Tuesday - Rolling Stones Wednesday Morning 3.00 a.m. - Simon & Garfunkel Friday On My Mind - Easybeats Saturday Night's All Right for Fighting - Elton John But I can't think of one with "Thursday" in the title. So, without doing a Google, can any of you?
  12. I think that would be "Yes". Am I correct?
  13. It makes you wonder what the Simon & Garfunkel song "Cecilia" was all about. Was it addressed to some mystery lover or was it addressed to his muse. Listen to the words again and I think you'll agree it's the latter!
  14. If the year was 1962, 1963 or 1964 I'd have to agree with you. If it was early 1965 his style was "folk rock". In fact, with some help from The Byrds, he invented that genre of music. After that though, and including "Like A Rolling Stone", he was a rock star through to 1967 when he became a folk singer again. In 1969 he went country. To cut this short there aren't many musical styles that Dylan hasn't tried. Some more successful than others. These days, he's gone full circle and he's back to being a folk and blues singer. But when he was rock star, he was up there with the best of them.
