Friday Lyriz QuizLabor Day weekend is upon us, my friends. The unofficial end of summer – where did it all go?  After nearly 400 quizzes, the pickings are slim when it comes to themes.  So what is associated with Labor Day?  Barbecues.  Turns out, not a whole lot of songs featuring “hamburgers” or “hot dogs,” save “Jack and Diane.”  What about summer? Just did that one.  Wearing white, or the lack thereof? Ding ding ding.

Ergo, all of today’s songs either have “white” in the title or in the artist name.  As in White Zombie.  Not as in Pat Boone, the whitest man alive.

Got answers? Send them my way.
