Using letter "B" as in Bob Seger lets continue this trivia countdown of my favorite songs with girls names in the title. "Betty Lou's Gettin' Out Tonight" was from Seger's 11th album Against The Wind. It was the B-side (there is that letter clue again) of "You'll Acompany Me." " Against the Wind" released in 1980, was an immediate commercial success, eventually replacing Pink Floyd's "The Wall" at No. 1, and holding the top position for six weeks. It was the follow up LP to has breakthrough album "NIght Moves." So let's enjoy this video replay of this Seger tune before tackling our trivia selections for today. Here are your clues: See if you know the artists and their songs. 1. The Regents recorded this tune in 1961. Dean Torrence from the group Jan & Dean sang lead on the band's cover of this song. The tune reached # 2 on the U.S. charts. The track was off the group's "Party album" which contained covers of artists like The Beatles, Bob Dylan and the Everly Brothers. This brother/cousin group gained popularity in the 60's with their surfer type sound. 2. This vocal quartet from Detroit, Michigan helped to define the city's Motown sound of the 1960s. They were noted for using a baritone lead singer when most male groups used a tenor. This 1967 track reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was the group's final Top 10 hit of the 1960s. The song's lyrics give an impassioned plea for his girl to stick with him and ignore the advances of other men. The group recorded many hits for Motown including "Reach Out I'll Be There" and "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" both # 1 hits. 3. This song was recorded by four members who were alumni from Rutgers University. This American pop music group of the early 1970s was part of the Jersey Shore sound. Their 1972 song was a #1 hit on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Cash Box Top 100 charts, remaining in the top position for one week. Barry Manilow had a song with a similar sounding girl's name.
