Friday Lyric Quiz, No. 462 (The Memory Remains Edition)

Last week, I missed the boat on my typical 7 a.m. publication of this here lyric quiz, so my good buddy Molly suggested having my next quiz be on the competing themes of remembering and forgetting. Maybe she wasn’t serious, but it was as good a theme as any…

The majority of these songs have some derivation of forget or remember in the title; the remaining are on the theme of memory (or at least have a memorable (?) lyric on the topic).

Happy Friday, and don’t forget to watch the Derby, celebrate Cinco de Mayo, or have a great time no matter what your weekend may bring.
