Friday Lyriz QuizGood morning all!  I’m reporting for duty from the Crescent City, the Big Easy, NOLA, New Orleans.  I’ve never lived here, but it’s always been my home away from home.  My Mom grew up here, my Dad an hour up the road, and the large majority of my extended family still calls it home.  It’s such a unique and wonderful place; if you haven’t ever been here, you need to come.  If you’ve been, come again.  There are always new dishes to sample, new bookstores to visit.

And did I mention the Super Bowl champions!  Ahh, yes.  The fearless Saints. As a bit of a tribute, all of today’s lyric-quiz artists share their name with a Saint – not a New Orleans Saint, mind you, but an actual canonized Christian saint.  (How many singers are named “Reggie,” anyway?)  Good luck, and let the good times roll.

Got answers? Send them my way.
