Friday Lyric Quiz, 437 (In Which Randomness Returns)

It occurred to me that I definitely didn’t need to mis-order the songs (in terms of chronology) since I provided the year anyway.  D’oh!  Logic was never my strongest suit.

I hope you enjoyed your trip through the summer anthems as a cold front swept across most of the country.  I personally felt the temperatures drop (along with inches of rain from the sky) as I walked six blocks through Boystown on Sunday night.  Ahhh, Chicago weather.  Always a maker of memories.

ANYWAY – look there at Jay-Z, appearing not once but twice!  Look at young Lady Gaga when some thought she’d be a one-hit wonder!  Before Kermit and the meat dress and the red-carpet egg and Jo Calderone.  Look at … Hoobastank? See what I had to say about all of the above! And take a break from the themes as you peruse this week’s quiz containing 10 entirely random songs.
