Friday Lyriz Quiz

Happy Friday, everyone!  The pop-music world bid a sad farewell to one of its own this week.  Rich Cronin, the frontman and primary songwriter for LFO (“Lyte Funky Ones”) lost his battle with leukemia. The former Jennifer Love Hewitt victim … I mean, paramour wasn’t as succesful as a Timberlake, for example, but “Every Other Time” is one catchy song, and “Summergirls” will go down in history as having some of the most nonsensical (yet memorable) rhymes of all time. Hope Abercrombie royalties made you comfortable in your final years, Rich.  Rest in peace.

This week’s theme is no theme. The pattern emerges.
