Friday Lyric Quiz, No. 464 (The Facebook goes public edition)

RIP, Donna Summer! Man, it has been a terrible year for musicians of my childhood.If I’d heard the news sooner, I would have tried to think of a Donna-worthy theme. Maybe next week.For now, enjoy a potpourri of mostly terrible songs.

Side note: Why will wedding DJs play ‘Last Dance’ and then proceed to play 14 more songs?  If you’re playing ‘Last Dance’ (which you shouldn’t have to, because it’s massively overdone), then at least have it be the last slow song of the night, people!

Anyway. Happy Friday.
