  1. Would that be the year they got stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? ::
  2. Both the Flying "lizards" and the Beetles (sp?) did a song called "Money"
  3. Speaking of goldbricking, where have you been in the Guess The Song threads, Kevin (or are you too good for us now that Mel Brooks started using you in his movies? :
  4. That's Stevie Wonder, Teresa! The song is Girl Blue from Music of My Mind, one of my favorite records of all time. (I think I just may listen to it now! )
  5. So many excellent contributions thus far--many that have been mentioned are some of my favorites of all time. Though I could probably compile a list of my own I will offer one song: Working Class Hero by Lennon (see signature below.) Not only is it a heartbreaking account of the pain of his upbringing, its last lines are an eerie foreshadowing of his death. Powerful and chilling all the way around.

  10. 1. short-lived "supergroup" (2 albums) 2. 80's 3. formed mostly from members of former British Invasion band Gotta be Box of Frogs, a short-lived 80's band with Yardbirders Paul Samwell-Smith and Chris Dreja. So, assuming I'm right: 1. Name came from working title of a Beatles song 2. Bit the big "Apple" but found mostly maggots 3. Two members hanged themselves
