Friay Lyriz QuizSo here I emerge from the briny deep, the first lyric quiz since March 6.  I heard from previous readers that the quiz difficulty was off-putting, forcing many of them to avoid reading each week for fear of self-flagellating.  So I’m trying to take it down a step and I’d appreciate the feedback!  Obviously, depending on your age/preferred genre/musical knowledge, you will rarely score all ten.  But I want to keep it as “real” as possible. Word.  Would it help if I added decades?  I’ll do that, and we shall see.  This is not a themed quiz; these songs have nothing in common.

Without further ado …
