This week's winner: Scott Rowe of St. Petersburg knew that Robbie Robertson of The Band wrote The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, which Joan Baez made a hit in the 1970s.

This week's question: Singer Eric Carmen scored hits with sappy ballads All By Myself, Never Gonna Fall In Love Again and, most egregious, 1987's Hungry Eyes, from the Dirty Dancing soundtrack. Carmen is redeemed a bit because once upon a time he sang in a Brit pop-influenced band that broke up on this very day in 1974. To get your name in the random drawing for the Weekend T-shirt that all the kids are screaming for, tell me the name of Carmen's old band.
