Much to the dismay of my family. No matter…they already know I’m weird.

Righto, been meaning to make one up for a while, & couldn’t think of a better time to throw my hat in the ring & provide some distraction. (It’s not as easy as it looks eh Swoods?? Respect)

So, I hope I didn’t make 'em too hard or too easy, the more lyrics the more unknown I figured the song is,. less lyrics … you get it.

These are all songs from the 70’s, … including a couple just a smidge sooner, from the Summer of love '69, … When that Canuck dude got his 1st real Six String.

Song/Artist/ Bonus points for the album/Trifecta.

Enjoy.
