Q Song Lyrics - A to Z Challenge

This is an April Blog Challenge. Normal blog posts will resume in May.

So much more than moons and Junes
  • A song for each decade beginning with Q
  • Lyric snippets to set you thinking... and commenting
  • And a challenge at the bottom of the post!

1960s:        Quinn the Eskimo - Manfred Mann [...come all without, come all within, you'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn...]   

1970s:        Queen of 1964 - Neil Sedaka

1980s:         Queen of Hearts - Juice Newton [Midnight and I'm a-waiting...]

1990s:         Quit Playing Games - The Back Street Boys [Even in my heart I see, you're not being true to me...]

Queen of 1964

The lyrics are fairly self-explanatory.

'...She was the queen of 1964
But the truth of the matter is
Nobody wants her anymore.
There was a time she could've shown you how
But nobody wants an overage groupie now...'

It's not good to see an older person thinking they can act, dress and play like they did in their teens.

Do you remember that day that you realised you could no longer go out wearing a mini-skirt and thick black mascara? [For the men make that drainpipe trousers and a medallion!]

I challenge you to think of any Q songs that I missed. This was a difficult letter!
