Music Trivia: Favorite Girl-Titled Songs - # 2
March 2, 2018 4:22pm CST
Going through my girl themed songs this is a favorite country rock one many of you should know. "Amie" by Pure Praire League is such a lovely country-pop tune written by founding member Craig Fuller. The track was included on the 1972 album "Bustin Out," but the song was not released as a single until 1973. "Amie" gained it's popularity thanks to the constant playing of the tune by college radio stations. The band still tours today doing about 100 shows a year, although they have undergone many lineup changes over the years. Of particular interest was the band's use of album cover art. The group used a Norman Rockwell Saturday Evening Post cover showing a trail-worn cowboy, named Luke, on their debut LP, and that cowboy would appear on the cover of every Pure Prairie League recording thereafter. One famous alumni was Vince Gill, who joined the group in the late 70's before embarking on a successful solo career as a country artist. Gill currently is touring with The Eagles. Now on to today's girl themed trivia selections. Here are your clues: 1. This English musician was associated with the first acts of the British punk and new wave movement that emerged in the mid-to-late 1970s. The song was on his debut album and was a beautiful tune about unrequited love. Although Entertainment Weekly rated this song as one of the artists 10 best, it did not become a hit. Linda Rondstadt did a cover of this track in 1979 whose version became a moderate success. You might know this artist from his more successful tunes "Oliver's Army" and "Watching The Detectives." 2. Three talented singers formed the nucleus of this rock group. Originating in 1967 this band was a tremendous success registering 21 Billboard Top 40 hits (with three hitting number one) between 1969 and 1975. The group used the services of many talented songwriters including Paul Williams, Harry Nilsson, and Randy Newman to name a few. This girl-themed song was written by Dave Loggins of "Please Come To Boston" fame. The lyrics of the song centers on Springtime, flowers, rain, memories and love. This band "may" have assembled "one" of the best trio of lead singers found in any group of the late 60's and early 70's. There are your clues!

1. His aim is true, too! 2. From an album titled Seven Separate Fools. It had big "playing cards" in the LP jacket. Not that I ever owned the album or anything.... And I love that song because my birth month is April. No clue, as usual.
