So, folks, I flaked out last week – no quiz as I was in full-on wedding mode with my awesome and dear friends Molly and Taylor.  Cheers to new nuptials!  But now I’m pack with part two of the female-names quiz.

These ten songs are from 1980 through the present.  And might I add that my father got many of the previous quiz’s clues but not number 9 which is, actually, my name.  Heh.  Happy Friday, all, and have fun.
