The only good thing that came from Procol Harum was the departure & rising stardom of Robin Trower.

    By the way, please explain to me, how did the song qualify as a 1 Hit Wonder
    ?

    razorbacker ... Please see post Number 127 in the SHOW thread where you first posed that question ... where I responded.

    I am not going to post the entire response here but PH's #34 hit "Homberg" happened 4 months after WSoP. HOWEVER ... the makeup of the group changed 3 months after WSOP Both a guitar player and a drummer left and were replaced by 2 others.


    It's a stretch, I know, but since the group as it existed has only that one hit ...WSoP ... it technically is a one hit wonder!

    I read your explanation, but as you said it is a stretch & I think it is a stretch that just doesn't reach. If you check the Billboard Book Of Top 40 Hits which I have sitting right in front of me, Procol Harum the band, regardless of the make up of the band is credited with 3 Top 40 hits. There is no difference in the way they are credited than you would see with the Doobie Brothers pre or post the addition of Michael McDonald. The hits are still credited to The Doobie Brothers.There are tons of instances of bands adding or losing members, but nothing changes in the credits, the band name remains the same.

    Hell the Rolling Stones lost Brian Jones in 1969 but were still The Stones when Mick Taylor joined. They have since added Ronnie Wood lost Bill Wyman, added Chuck Levell, & on & on, but all their hits are credited to The Rolling Stones.

    The Guess Who lost Randy Bachman, but they were still the Guess Who.

    I just think that this was a 1 Hit Wonder that wasn't.

    Lee's song is a knock off of Phillip Phillips' Home which is a knock off of Mumford & Sons. Lee trying to get into the bandwagon to get a hit. He is lacking originality right now.

    I should have gone with my gut to put Candice in the bottom 2. I'm not surprised that Kree is in the top 2 instead of Candice because she was able to spur more votes from her fans after she landed bottom 2 last week plus she is no longer splitting votes w Janelle. OTOH, Candice is still splitting votes with Amber. Once Amber is gone, its going to be a free for all for the Final 2

    I believe you are referring to a post that I made during the show. I was not being murky with my response, I was simply reporting what happened on stage before the commercial break. Ryan split them into 2 groups, and said one was the top 2 and the other group was the bottom 2. No announcment of who was safe and who was in danger had been made when I posted .

    See...the dangers of a west coaster reading ahead of watching and then posting. **sigh** I won't do it again.

    These are all good points I hadn't thought of. I'd like to see Amber go next. She just doesn't have chops or stage presence as the others. I really hope Candace makes F2. My gut is saying that she'll pull out the stops and she and Angie will be F2. That would be one heck of a finale.

    I didn't know you read my guess at how they arrived at the one-hit-wonder status because you asked again.

    I do think, perhaps more importantly, it has something to do with that songwriting dispute/lawsuit meaning the song was written by only 2 or 3 people who never wrote another hit as a team.

    I was just making a guess because you seemed very unhappy or frustrated about this selection. I don't know, and you are absolutely the expert.
