Random Acts of Thursday - Sing a Song of Six Gents

Happy Thursday, one and all.  I started on a 'TMI Thursday' post, and I even understand that LiLu is discontinuing the process.  No problem, I wasn't in full-on rant mode when I started it, so we'll hone that puppy for you another time.  Of course, I managed to screw something else up, and this never posted this morning.  As such, for many of you, this will be a Random Act of Friday.  I wasn't even drinking last night, though I was quite tired when I wrote this. 

I'm sure there are lots of cool Ohio-related things I could be sharing with you, but I'm exhausted and nothing comes to mind.  Not even SkyMall... 
Meanwhile, since I've been here, I've been listening to a lot of radio, I'm quite impressed with all Cleveland has to offer music-wise.  And me, being the Blogger of Quizzic Doom that I am, I thought of a little test for you, dear readers.  

Below are six artists mentioned in some form by another artist or group in their songs.  Your task, name those artists and song titles. 

Elvis Presley

Bo Diddley

T Rex

Neil Young

Jimmy Page

George Clinton

AAAAaaaand.....go!  Remember to show your work.

Oh, and as for fun Clevelandish items, we finally have an address to call our own in this little burg.  Huzzah!

I'll take the easy one:

Neil Young: Sweet Home Alabama - Lynard Skynard

Had one of them been Buddy Holly I'd be all over it. As it stands, not so much. Frank took the only one I can think of off the top of my head.

Oh, DUH! I was referring to the Weezer song. But Buddy Holly sang the Bo Diddley song. If that's right, I'll freak. And if you say it's not right, I'll say you're wrong. ;)

Still thinking on these others. I promise not to cheat.

Elvis Presley is referenced in Alanna Myles' song "Black Velvet." He's also, I believe referenced in Marc Cohn's "Walking in Memphis."

Lynnard Skynnard (I know, I don't have that spelling right.) mocked Neil Young in "Sweet Home Alabama" (The parody of which is the only reason to watch the movie "8 Mile."

Billy Joel's "We didn't Start the Fire" mentions Buddy Holly (Not on the list, just thought I'd mention it! LOL!)

I'm quite upset, since I just went through the work to type up all the answers and my comment disappeared. I'll get around to it again later.

T-Ro said...

I'm guessing Sheryl Crow for Elvis.
The Who "you better your bet" is the T. Rex thing.

Will be back when I've googled the rest....


Be nice and share!
