Friday Lyriz QuizOnce a summer, my gang from high school always tries to reunite.  Sometimes in one of our home cities, sometimes in Chattanooga, where we all met SO many years ago.  It’s always a great time, full of cheap drinks, karaoke, and enough laughter to carry us through until the next year. The three-day weekend is one of my favorite parts of the summer, and though flight delays and diversions halted our process at first, we will still have a great 48 hours. If the past is any precedent, about seven of those hours will be spent sleeping.

Anyway, it’s summertime, life is good, and the temperatures are hot.  Today’s quiz features songs, old and new, all with “summer” somewhere in the title.  Stay cool.
