Question of the Day: The Teenage Years

by Morning Show

Last night  Justin Bieber won big at the American Music Awards, taking home the top prize (artist of the year) and the awards for the other two categories he was nominated for. And he's only 18. With that in mind, today's Question of the Day is what is your favorite recording by a teenager?

1. "Teenager in Love" - Dion

2. "Gimme Some Lovin" - Steve Winwood

3. "Good Morning Little School Girl" - Johnny Lang

4. "Chasing Pavements" - Adele

Question of the Day: Who?

by Morning Show

Lucinda Williams is headling this year's FUV Holiday Cheer. But who else is performing? Well, you'll have to stay tuned to find out as we make the announcement later this morning. So today's question of the day is about songs that ask the question, "Who?" And in case you miss the big announcement, subscribe to our enewsletter to receive all updates about FUV and Holiday Cheer! Here's what we played:

Men at Work - "Who Can It Be Now?"

Question of the Day: Songs About Obsessions

by Morning Show

 

Herman Melville's famous novel Moby Dick; Or, The Whale was first published on this day in 1851, and we think it's safe to say that Captain Ahab was obsessed with Moby Dick. To celebrate this, today's Question of The Day is all about obsession. Let us know your favorite songs about obsessions by emailing us at morning@wfuv.org or leaving a comment below.

What we played:
