Thursday Morning Music Quiz (eazy)

"I pulled in to Nazareth, was feeling 'bout half past dead...."

Good music for a mid-morning. Hrm.... I bet Hayseed Dixie could work up a good version of this song.

It's a fairly easy one, but if anyone wants to play, the first person to correctly identify the title and artist for the song I'm listening to right now can have a point.

[ETA: The point goes to yarbiedoll for correctly identifying the title and original artist (see comments for answer). Bonus points to both bodnej and yarbiedoll for various other pieces of trivia.]

Wallflowers - weight lyrics

No point for you!

Even though you got the title correct, you're wrong on the artist. You're young, though, so it's pretty forgivable. Still, no partial credit on this one.

Robbie Robertson wrote it.

Perhaps you were listening to the Grateful Dead.

Anyway, I think I already earned at least half a point.

No partial credit.

No, I wasn't listening to the Grateful Dead. I was listening to the original artist.

You can still get a point if you can come up with the original artist. And as a special treat, I'll give you a bonus point if you can point out a pretty cool connection between the original artist and your guess of The Wallflowers.

It appears to have been performed by some group called "The Band" but I've never heard of them.

Sheryl Crow also recorded it, but I'm doubting that she was the original artist. Damn this is hard.

I still think I deserve partial credit. Wasn't it enough that I knew the Wallflowers had recorded The Weight? That's pretty huge for me as I usually know nothing about mainstream music.

No partial credit.

You're too late for the regular point, but the bonus point is still available.

And, FWIW, even though you don't get any points for all of the other information you provided, I am impressed.
