Max Moscardi said...

Malcolm said...

I also got 5 right. In addition to knowing 2 and 4:

#5 is Lust for Life by Iggy Pop

#8 is In the Air Tonight by Phil Collins

#10 is Head Over Heels by Tears for Fears

Barbara said...

HELL! I thought this was going to be easy for all you guys.

Sean, sorry not Little Richard but you were kidding right?

Dan, correct on both!

Max, very good :) That's one I didn't get.

Malcolm, excellent.

Here's the one's I got:

2. "Rock and Roll" by Led Zeppelin

4. "Something" by The Beatles

7. "All by Myself" by Eric Carmen

8. "In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins

9. "YYZ" by Rush

#6 is impossible to get.

The only reason I got number 7 was because I used to sing that out my bedroom window to my neighbor over and over. I had it on a 45. I'd also sing Harry Nillson's "Without You" out the same window to a different neighbor.

I was 15 years old and in LOVE with Eric Carmen when that song came out. Memories....

Hi Barbara,

I wasn't kidding at all. Bonham played the opening drum pattern from Little Richard's "Keep a Knocking" note for note and they dove into a loose jam based on that song that became "Rock and Roll". They kept that bit to kick off the tune on the finished recording.

I was hoping someone would have spotted that. Here's the original

Rock trivia is loads of fun :)

Sean - get the hell out of here! I LOVE IT!!!! I should have never doubted your extensive knowledge. I love learning new rock trivia and hearing that song was too fun!

Sean Coleman said...

I really don't know that much. It's more of an obsession with where things came from :)

My Dad had a ton of 78s, some of which included Little Richard, The Everly Brothers, Elvis and a ton of other music that he bought when he was in his twenties. I listen to fifties stuff all the time (Chuck Berry is one of my favorite artists from that era).

Lennon said time and again that no one has ever improved upon that blueprint.
