1. "Uno, does, one, two, tres, quatro!" 60's
2.  I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping 60's
3.  There's a port on a western bay, And it serves a hundred ships a day 70's
4.  We get it almost every night, when that moon gets big and bright 70's
5.  What is this, that stands before me? (hint...the name of this song is the same name of the band, and that album it appears on, like Bad Company) 60'


Go through your old eight tracks or records, and good luck!

I would have went with "Juju Hand" for a Sam The Sham and Pharaoh's song. "Wooly Bully" was way too easy for this gang of dinosaurs.

I used to play the Hell out of "Juju Hand" in my pirate days. Plus it segued well into the Sir Douglas Quintet's  "She's About a Mover". End it up with Joe Carrasco's "Nacho Daddy" and you've got a nice 10-12 minute set of music.

It's all about the flow.

Got Brandy, & I could hear the melody to #4 in my mind. The others, no clue.
I remember the first time I heard "Paperback Rider". Heard it listening to my 8 transistor radio waiting for "Bill" to come pick me up to go to school. Told him while on the way riding in his Volkswagen "fastback" about the latest Beatles song I just heard but I thought the title was "Take the Black Chrysler". Honest. & I wasn't even high! ha ha. 8) Perhaps they were?

My mid has held up halfway but I don't recognize shit past #1. So yeah flawed question. I could post similar multiquestion and get incorrect responses. Might be fun.
