Friday Lyric Quiz #446

The biggest news in the music industry this week is the release of the year-end ‘best of’ lists.  Best songs, best albums, best groups.  Adele dominates, Pitbull still won’t go away, and some band named F*cked Up (no asterisk, however) topped Spin’s album list.  So we’ve come to that, I guess.

I’ll weigh in with some favorites of my own next week … for now, enjoy this lyrical hodgepodge.

Happy Friday!
