That's just me. I was in the group that would wait for summer when all the new songs really came out. It was a time when it seemed a number one hit was released almost every week. So to me, no matter how good they were, they had tough competition and they were lost in a sea of great music.

    Now here's one for you...

    I'll put money on Teach on this one. Teach and Tenn Mike know this one. Any southern boy between 65 and 75 gonna know this.

    Actually, I preferred Carl Perkin's version.

    Actually, in my opinion, and everybody has an opinion so it doesn't carry a whole lot of water, but I never thought Elvis had a great voice. Seemed strained to me. Having said this, there were some songs he sang fit his voice and I considered them as great. Nobody else could sing "Ain't Nuthin' but a Hound Dog" like Elvis. or "Love me Tender."

    I was still trying to break away from all that country western crap my folks listened to. Never really cared for it.

    But, how anyone can put down a band that's rolled out so many great hits over the years and considered one of the best rock bands ever is beyond me.

    It wasn't a gimme for me. I really did have to google it. My bad.

    How about

    Left a good job in the city
    working for the man every night and day
    but I never lost a minute of sleep
    worrying about the way things might have been

    And did a much better job of it. I did see Tina Turner in concert in the mid 80s. Pretty damn talented.

    Every second of the night I live another life
    These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside

    Re: Song lyric game

    Here's one from the mid 60s. This band disbanded after a few big hits, mostly because their drummer died of an OD. The lead singer and guitar player, though, went on to become a rock legend, and just retired from touring last year.

    I think I'm making this too easy.

    It's getting near dawn,
    When lights close their tired eyes
    I'll soon be with you my love,
    To give you my dawn surprise
    I'll be with you darling soon,
    I'll be with you when the stars start falling

    Think that's the title, without googling. Didn't see your first post, but got it without the additional lyrics.

    The song is Sunshine of Your Love. I think the only 3 man band that compare in terms of music quality and quantity is ZZ Top. It amazes me how just 3 guys can produce that much great sound.
