Friday Lyriz QuizWell, friends, a couple of you proved me right with last week’s quiz theme.  Much more than once, I heard “Who covered [SONG X]?” when, in fact, the correct answer they were thinking of WAS the cover.  Poor Otis Redding had proper credit taken away twice on this quiz alone (at least Michael Bolton couldn’t steal all the glory for “Dock of the Bay”).

This week’s theme is a potpourri, but one of the lyric quiz taker’s favorites (as it seems to be easier). The lyrics quoted below are the first lines of the song. Good luck and happy Friday.

Got answers? Send them my way.
