Song title and original artist please. No searching!

"He came home too drunk from mixin' Tanqueray and wine."

"Take off your shoes, stay out of the race"

"Sunburn with freezer burn"

"I am someone you'll never know"

"Holes in both my shoes "

"Stocked it full of jelly jars"

"But I can see that black horizon glooming"

"She smiled at me on the subway"

Thats an easy one. Rush - 2112 if I remember rightly. Thank you Guitar Hero for getting me into a great band.

Very good! The two you missed I expected to be tough. I'll leave them up there a few more days to give others a chance.

Don't look to me to answer. I've always been ignorant of the trival part of music history.

On the other hand, I do know two good music trivia questions:

1 - What is David Bowie's real name? Bonus: Why did he change it? (If you know his real name, you know why he changed it.)

2 - If you had a list of all artists or bands that ever had a Top 40 hit, which comes last alphabetically? (FYI: The answer is the same if you limit it to Top 10, or expand it to Top 100. The same isn't true for the first alphabetically.)

I'll give the answers in a couple days.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

Wow. You're quick.

Yeah, most people think there's a space between the Zs, which would pu them at the top of the list of Zs, and then start guessing Warren Zevon or somebody....

LOL, David Jones, changed because of Davy Jones in the Monkees.

Same wouldn't be true for the first alphabetically? I don't see how that could be. I would guess Aaron Neville with "Tell It Like It Is", but you might be going by last names, or band names.
