Ok, today's - September 20th - the 21st anniversary of the death in 1984 of the singer/songwriter Steve Goodman. For two points, name a famous song he wrote and the singer who had a big hit with it.

City Of New Orleans/Arlo Guthrie - johnfairr
jf, John Prine calls that song the greatest train song in the world. I kinda agree with him. Goodman wrote that on a napkin in the bar car while he, his wife and their son were travelling to visit his wife's mother in New Orleans.

Pigletboat has just answered T23 correctly. :D

20th Sep 2005, 20:51

Even though it isn't about Joni, I'll try and play along. How about "City of New Orleans" and Arlo Guthrie, for Steve Goodman?

jf, without the benefit of nicotine for the last 6 days, and finding it hard, but getting better (as some girls were won't to say..!)

21st Sep 2005, 00:14
City Of New Orleans and Arlo Guthrie it is. :)

Good luck with the no smoking, jf. Cold turkey's the only way to go. I started smoking at 15 and smoked for 30 years. Then on New Years Eve 15 years ago, I ran out of Marlboroughs about 20 minutes to midnight. Since Mrs. p had quit six months before, you can guess what my New Year's resolution was. :uhoh: My added incentive was I dislike Canadian cigarettes, can't stand the smell of 'em.

22nd Sep 2005, 01:34
That's it folks. Final scores posted above.
See ya Sunday.
