But before we deep dive into this weeks question, we’d like to take a moment to recognize the brilliant readers who weighed in on last week’s question, which was all about our favorite song from 1969 “Delta Lady” the songwriter, the performer and “The Muse” who inspired it! First in with all the right answers was the man who is “The “Win” in Winogradsky Mr, Steve “Win” ogradsky! following Steve was the ever accurate Mr. Jeffery Conroy!  Wrapping things up was the feverishly fast Mr. Fred Vogel! Way to go gents one and all!

5) “Up On The Roof”

6) “One Fine Day”

7) “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling”

There you go, 7 huge hits from the Sixties that we all know like our own names! but, here’s the drill, one of the title’s shouldn’t be included on this list, yes all the songs listed share a huge common element except one! And that’s our question! Which one of these seven song titles does not belong on this list and why? Additionally, once you’ve identified the title that doesn’t belong, add a title of your own choice that does qualify to be on the list! Finally we need the name of at least one artist who, respectively recorded and released each song excluding the title that doesn’t belong, BUT including the title that YOU add to the list!

    • Hey Mark!
      Of course I know who Susan Allanson is! In fact I may have seen you playing with her! I have a very dear friend, Clint Holmes who performed a number of shows with Susie in Las Vegas, way back in the 80’s I believe and I flew out to Vegas t o see Clint’s show and Susie, I believe was “The Co Headliner” If you were her bass player back in those days I may have seen you! It was back in the 80’s or 90’s and I think the venue was “The Flamingo” Please let me know if I recall correctly?
      And, of course you nailed the question!
