Just found this on the net, I think it's ok since they're not full songs but about 2 second snips of them. File's name is 70's tune, they may or not be 70's songs, I think they are. Anyway, there are 21 songs in this clip. Can you name them all? To make it even harder name the artist. I couldn't so I don't have the answers! Maybe with everyone's input we can figure them all out.
Name that Tune, 1970

While I recognized a few, about the only ones I could positively identify was
Ventura Highway (don't remember the artist)
Benny and the Jets (Elton John)
There was an Eagles song in there
and School's out Forever by Alice Cooper.

I'm sure they'd be easier to identify if it was the original artists doing the "sound bites".

In the '70s I was into heavy metal (still am). If it didn't have screeming guitars with cool drum licks in it, I didn't listen to it :: Come to think of it, I don't really remember the '70's, if you know what I mean :eek:

I agree with Soul Sacrifice. There is a section of She's Not There towards the end that sounds similar but I think your choice is correct.

Can't say on Wishing Well, don't think I've ever heard it.
