The generation gap, the loneliness of life on the road, and the loss of self are all covered in this song. It is a sad, introspective look into the life of most entertainers and the difficulties that they face. Fame may not be the wonderful companion envisioned by the masses.

Answer: Cher

Written by Diane Warren the song "If I could Turn Back Time" was a 1989 hit for Cher. The song hit the charts in North America as well as in Europe and proved to be a major comeback song for this singer/actress whose career spanned over 40 years. Her controversial video for this song was filmed aboard the American battleship, the USS Missouri and was banned by many television networks because of her scanty costume.

Answer: Bobby Bland

Turn On Your Love Light" was a 1961 hit for Bobby Bland who is often referred to as the "Lion of the Blues". Bland is a member of the Blues Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and winner of the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. The song is about a broken-hearted man who is pleading with the woman he loves to allow him back into her life.
5. If I put on the 1984 album "New Sensations" so that I could listen to the song "Turn To Me", the voice of which rather unhappy singer would be featured?

Answer: Lou Reed

Lou Reed wrote and sang about personal experiences, in an open manner which shocked many people. The lyrics of this song are a plea for the woman he loves to come back to him. It speaks of intravenous drug use, prostitution, and death. Lou Reed had a rough childhood and was never known as one of the happiest artists in rock and roll.

But his 1984 album, "New Sensations", may have been his most light hearted. This one-time member of the group called "The Velvet Underground" may be one of the most influential singers of his time.

Glen Campbell went on to a 50+ year career with his own television show and numerous hit songs that he wrote and/or sang himself. Of the all the singers listed, he was the only one performing in 1961, in fact, the others had not even been born.

Answer: Bobby Lewis

The lyrics tell of a man who can't sleep because he cannot stop thinking about his new love. This song has also been recorded by Steve Goodman, Lulu, and Joan Jett. None have ever reached the same popularity with the song.

The song was featured in the 1978 film "Animal House" and is probably Lewis's most famous musical offering.
9. "Turn Out the Lights" was a big hit for country singer Howard Cosell.

Answer: False

This statement is false. Howard Cosell was a sports announcer not a country singer. It was a different sports announcer named "Dandy" Don Meredith who was known for singing the line "Turn out the lights, the party's over" from the Willie Nelson song that was titled "The Party's Over". Often heard on the television show "Monday Night Football", Meredith would sing the line whenever it looked like one team had been put into a situation from which they could not recover and win the game.
10. I would put my 1967 album "Happy Together" by the Turtles if I wanted to listen to the beautiful folk-rock song "Turn, Turn, Turn".

Answer: False

"Turn, Turn, Turn" is a wonderful song that was inspired by a verse from the Book of Ecclesiastes, chapter 3. Written and released by Pete Seeger in 1962, the song did not become a big hit until 1965 when The Byrds released their version of the song on an album of the same name. Except for the last line of the song, the lyrics come straight from the Bible and are a reflection that there is a time and a place for everything.

This song was a plea for peace that came out during the Vietnam War era and has been featured in many movies including the 1994 hit "Forrest Gump".

Other groups to have recorded this song, but The Turtles were not one of them.
