I did OK. I'm about 75% on this one. I didn't know some of the real oldies, but enough to make it through. Didn't know Bobby Darin or the Shirelles. I could sing just about every song though!

Funny, not only do I love the oldies, I own almost all of these on CD. But trying to retrieve the trivia from my little gray cells? On Jeopardy, I'd be a big fat loser!.

As you would expect, I also carry around a lot of trivial information on a myriad of subjects ; But I'm in agreement as well on how I would fare on JEOPARDY !

I'd never be first on the buzzer......... thought process is just too slow for that venue, LOL
