Hour 2--Songwriter Spotlights

Something a bit different this hour: Here are six well-known songs, and all were hits for these artists. But these artists didn't write any of these songs. I'll play the hit, and then focus on some of the actual songwriters' performing their own stuff. If you even know one of these composers, you're doing well! If you know all 5 (without Googling!), I tip my Altoona Curve baseball cap to you--you really know your music...

So here's the hits, along with the (initials) of the songwriter following after:

They Don't Know--Tracey Ullman (KM)
Fifteen Minutes--Kirsty MacColl
Terry--Kirsty MacColl
Me and Bobby McGee--Janis Joplin (KK)
Help Me Make it Through the Night--Kris Kristofferson
This Old Road--Kris Kristofferson
City of New Orleans--Arlo Guthrie (SG)
Jessie's Jig--Steve Goodman
Men Who Love Women Who Love Men--Steve Goodman
Eli's Comin'--Three Dog Night (LN)
Sweet Blindness--Laura Nyro
You've Really Got a Hold on Me--Laura Nyro & Labelle

and here's 2 very different types of songs from this final songwriter:

Hush--Deep Purple
Rose Garden--Lynn Anderson (JS)
Games People Play--Joe South

Hour 3--Feature album: Take-Offs and Put-Ons--George Carlin (1967)
