Friday Lyric Quiz, No. 475 (The “Well.” Edition)

Winona et al

Super Random Clue.

Sakes alive. Worst. Super Bowl. Ever? That was a rough one, and I was barely vested in the thing. Halftime was as weird as I figured it would be, though not wholly unpleasant.  Anyway, on, on, on to the next one.

This week is another potpourri of sorts, and I really have nothing to riff on.  All of the big pop-culture stories are depressing — Woody Allen, Philip Seymour Hoffman, the piss-poor conditions of the Olympic host city.  Last night was Jay Leno’s “last” broadcast (again), but I’ll believe it when I see it, chubby man.  NEVER FORGET.

So without further ado, let’s rock this thing up and down the coast. Picture is a clue to one of today’s songs.
