Friday Lyric Quiz, #449

It’s 2012, the spring TV season is upon us, and pitchers and catchers report in six weeks.  No need to get sad about the conclusion of the holidays.  I am speaking to myself here.
No theme this week – just a lovely hodgepodge of songs, some good, some truly terrible.  Enjoy and happy Friday!
