Awesome - good mix of songs that I can actually appreciate as more than just gone-in-15-minutes tripe. And I love how you accept alternate musical acts for songs that were famously covered by other artists (like Tina Turner's version of Proud Mary).

Except for Peter, Paul, & Mary doing Blowin' in the Wind, which was a bigger (and better, in my opinion) hit than Dylan's original

yeah, it should accept Peter, Paul & Mary

It was in 1963, but I seriously doubt there are many listeners today who only know the PPM version without knowing the Dylan version. So it's not like Proud Mary, where the CCR and Turners versions are both heard commonly today.

Regardless of which is accepted or better known today, I much preferred Peter, Paul, and Mary's version back in the day.

I grew up listening to the PPM version on family road trips. Didn't become aware it was Dylan's until my late 20s.

It took me around 10 attempts to spell "tubthumping" correctly...

Three buddies and I did "Tubthumping" one time at a local burger place on karaoke night. We rocked the house! Most fun I ever had doing karaoke.

I misspelled Creedence as Credence.. (or did I? the first is underlined red right now while the latter is not)... but managed to get the answer by typing in Tina Turner.

You would have been fine if you'd gone with CCR ;)
level 75
Apr 5, 2016
Spellchecker went with the incorrect spelling of Credence because credence is a common word, while Creedence was a proper name - a friend of the Fogerty family, if memory serves.
