Thinking Thursday – Name That Song #3

We are back with another Name That Song trivia post!

How does it work, you ask? We have posted a line or two from popular songs from the fifties onward. Your job is to guess both the song and the artist that the lyrics are from. Some are more difficult than others, but they are all lyrics from well-known songs. I’ve added the year the song was released to give you a little hint. How many can you guess correctly?

The answers will be listed below the questions with a picture separating them so you don’t scroll too far. No peeking though!
