That’s right, I’m at it again with another Mystery Date! This one won’t be nearly as involved as the previous, as there isn’t much to say about this particular tune.
I’m not sure how good of a mystery this is, you won’t need to be Sherlock Holmes to crack it. At least three members of this band went on to other, more successful, musical enterprises. It won’t surprise me if your blind date ends at “Hello,” but try to stick it out a little bit. After all, you don’t want to hurt your Mystery Guest’s feelings, do you?
Give a listen – can you place the day, the time and any other details you care to note?
Let’s review the ground rules here…
The Mystery Date song is not necessarily something I believe to be good. So feel free to rip it or praise it. Rather the song is something of interest due to the artist, influences, time period… Your job is to decipher as much as you can about the artist without research. Who do you think it is? Or, Who do you think it sounds like? When do you think it was recorded? Etc…
If you know who it is, don’t spoil it for the rest. Anyone who knows it can play the “mockcarr option.” (And I’ve got a hunch at least one of you know this one.) This option is for those of you who just can’t hold your tongue and must let everyone know just how in-the-know you are by calling it. So if you know who it is and want everyone else to know that you know, email Mr. Moderator at
mrmoderator [at] rocktownhall [dot] com. If correct we will post how brilliant you are in the Comments section.
The real test of strength though is to guess as close as possible without knowing. Ready, steady, go!
