Quiz: How well do you know songs about Friday?

“Friday, I’m in… what’s that line again?”


During more normal times, it was an option for many of us of putting the feet up or going out to socialise on a Friday evening. 

It’s little wonder then that so many popular songs either have Friday in the title or have them somewhere in the lyrics.

How will you fare with this quiz, then? Only one way to find out.
