Becky's Island Music Trivia Quiz #374 - 4/23/08

The Spring of 1977

We've done summer and fall quizzes, now let's spring ahead - or spring back to 1977. I was mostly preoccupied with whichever boy I thought was cute that week, and didn't really pay attention to the catastrophic plane crash in the Canary Islands, the first game played by the Toronto Blue Jays, and the beginning of Queen Elizabeth's Silver Jubilee. Sarah Michelle Gellar was born, Joan Crawford died, and at the beginning of the spring, nobody had ever heard of Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, or C-3PO. And this was the music we were listening to.
