My most loyal lyric-quiz reader, RJ, pointed out that I didn’t supply the answers for the week of June 10th.  Yikes.  I’m glad someone was paying attention. They are attached at the bottom below last week’s answers, or should I say (answers).

It’s another theme this week to celebrate gay pride weekend across the world.  All of today’s artists include at least one member who is openly LGBT.  Cheers to all!
