Of those, I've only heard music by Jamiroquai, and please don't make me try to spell that during a quiz!

Yea, but Jam Master Jay is (was) part of Run DMC, so that would be the musical act, in the quiz for "R".

Me and Bobby McGee is actually a cover. Original is Kris Kristofferson.

Kris co-wrote it, but Roger Miller was the first one to perform it. Kristofferson, The Grateful Dead, and Joplin all performed it at least a year after Miller.

So proud of myself for not knowing the Justin Bieber song . . . in fact, other than hearing "Baby, Baby, Baby, Oh" on a commercial, I don't know a single thing that kid has ever done.

I only got the Justin Bieber song by guessing Justin Bieber. In fact, all the artists I got were just me typing artists that started with J, didn’t even look at the songs.

I was watching Lobo in concert at my school in 1973, and after a break he came back out on stage very upset, and told us that his good friend, Jim Croce, had just died in a plane crash after performing at Northwestern State in Louisiana. I'll never forget that moment.

Wow, that's crazy. I guess something like that would stick with you. Impossible to calculate how much good music we lost with Jim Croce dying so young.
