Question: In National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, what is Eddie’s dog named?

Last Question: What Phil Phillips R&B classic was the first single released by the Honeydrippers?

Answer: “Sea of Love”

The Honeydrippers were a “supergroup” consisting of Robert Plant, fellow former Led Zeppelin member guitarist Jimmy Page, and Page’s former Yardbirds bandmate Jeff Beck. They recorded an EP called The Honeydrippers: Volume One. In early 1985, the band peaked at #3 with the remake of the Phil Phillips’ tune “Sea of Love” and hit the top 30 with “Rockin’ at Midnight,” originally a Roy Brown recording.
Since the album was so successful, Plant said that they would record a full album. However, it never happened. Here are their hits from that album:

Sea of Love

Rockin’ at Midnight
