Your Input: ASKING QUESTIONS
Sometimes songs can ask questions. (Often times, they supply no answers — and why should they?)
For this week’s “YOUR INPUT” offering, name your favorite song (or two) that asks a question in the title.
Some examples include:
– “Have You Ever Seen the Rain? ” (Creedence Clearwater Revival)
– “Do You Wanna Touch Me? ” (Joan Jett and the Blackhearts)
– “Where Did Our Love Go?” (The Supremes)
Whatcha got, people?
Hit that comments section…hard! It’s all yours! Have fun with it!
