3/23 Lyrical Pursuit Lyric

This probably qualifies as a "what'd he say?" lyrical pursuit. I remember listening to this one on a 45 single trying to figure out the lyrics.

(See rules/intro here.)

FM, AM, hits are clickin' while the clock is tock-a-tickin'

Friends and Romans, salutations, Brenda and the Tabulations

Carly Simon, I behold her, Rolling Stones and centerfoldin

Bonus points if anyone names the other single that the lead singer made famous.

I really don't have to remind you not to cheat, do I?

Clue #1: It was done by a group of studio musicians
Clue #2: your high school might have one of these

I just gave you guys the band. Can't you figure it out?
Clue #3: your family also might have one of these from time to time.
Clue #4: Famous bands do these type of tours

I felt like I was playing the $100000 pyramid instead of Lyrical pursuit

Victor moves up 1 point with Reunion performing "Life is a Rock But the Radio Rolled Me"

March totals: Nic 15, Stephen 15, Keith 10, Victor 9

No tries for the bonus?
Joey Levine was the lead singer. He was a bubblegum music pioneer with "Chewy Chewy" and "Yummy Yummy Yummy" to his credit

So you have the title? Impressive

Hey, I know it too! But, man, the band...

OK. The band is Reunion, which is easily one of the dumbest band names ever, and the song is "Life is a Rock But the Radio Rolled Me"

I'll take that point, tenkyouveddymuch.

'Round here it was "Life is a Rock but WPGC Rolled Me." Yeah, it was stupid.

I doubt anyone is going to get the bonus. Can you tell us teh answer.
