    If This Is It -- This Is It

    I remember NCAA March Madness commercials at the time played a clip of Darnell Hillman (Dr. Dunkenstein) slamming one home to "This Is It!".

    This was the same year Charles Barkley played in the NCAA tournament for Auburn. I saw quite a bit of it that year because I had my appendix out after it burst and was laid up for a while.

    I think this song was the 'B' side of "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" for Wayne Newton and was on The Partridge Family's "Greatest Hits" album.

    Beats me! I remember a few of Wayne Newton’s songs, but not many. I thought the Partridges only had one song. I’m the right age, but not a fan of either.

    3-way mash-up (see spoiler for definition). I'll provide the 3 artists (in order) and you have to provide the 3 connecting songs.
    Definition:
    Mashup: MA` sh * up: (n)
    The would-be song if two artists mashed their titles together
    Example:
    Artist: George Gerswin and Elvis =
    Song: I can't give you anything but LOVE Me tender

    1. Rolling Stones
    2. Soundgarden
    3. U2

    The clue is probably too obscure. Getting the artist will make the song easy.

    Hutch was a character on a 70's cop show.

    I look at This Day In History on history.com each day. One of today's stories.

    https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/zager-and-evans-end-a-six-week-run-at-1-with-their-smash-hit-in-the-year-2525-exordium-terminus

    The American pop-rock duo Zager and Evans end a six-week run at the top of the charts with their ponderously titled single “In The Year 2525." It would be their one and only hit.

    Zager and Evans never returned to the pop charts after their triumphant debut in the summer of ’69. The disbanded just two years later, in 1971. In their very brief career, however, they spent longer atop the pop charts (six weeks) than many more enduring acts. Like so many stars whose hits have not stood the test of time, however, they have been nearly expunged from cultural memory.
