    Linda, let me know which ones you’re not sure about and I’ll post the correct answers. (One that a lot of people apparently missed is the first one. it’s Warren Zevon’s Werewolves of London and the answer is “perfect.”
    Best –

    Was just telling my grandchild how annoying it is that the lyrics of some pop songs are stuck on rewind in my head! Also note: malls, stores, gas stations, even medical waiting rooms are still playing these songs, not all of which were even good when we were young. Anyone recall “soma” from Brave New World??!

    I missed a few, but I was pretty much a total nerd during the 60 ‘ s and 70’s. I think I learned the ones I knew when they were already Golden oldies.

    I agree with Tobi. I’m impressed if someone can name the artist and song – without internet research!

    Another great one, Roz. A follow-up to this one is to ask the names of the songs and/or the artists.
