Friday Lyric Quiz, Number 451

Blog fail, y’all.  I always admonish myself when a week passes from lyric quiz to lyric quiz without at least one other blog post in between to entertain my few but loyal readers.  Sorry, guys; I will try to do better!  Until then, take a few moments and do today’s potpourri quiz.

Happy Friday!
