    Oh my… I am ashamed to tell how bad I did. LOL πŸ˜† Let’s just say I’m not good with this type of quiz. πŸ˜† That was fun to learn though. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›

    Thanks Shads – enjoyed that…. have also come to the conclusion that some of the songs that made the hit parade in Britain did not make it “down under”…lol I missed 4 – and even with the answers was none the wiser..lol…. made me think at least – and at my age, I need all the help I can get…lol…. ((((((hugs))))) Lina xxxx

    Rhanks for the memories of when I was young. Well, I guess I was a teenager then. This brought back a lot of memories. I thought it was all Rock n Roll. Now i learn it was called the Doo Wop. I think some of the songs or people mentioned were rock n roll. I did get a lot right.

    Bit of a misnomer calling it a “doo wop test” when a lot of the questions don’t apply to doo wop, anyway good post, knew all but one #28.
    Suggest doing one without answers til say 24 or 48 hours later. Just an idea. Then the blogger can look at the answers and give a prize ,, like a used box of matches lol, to the one who gets them all correct, without consulting the web either, honesty prevails.
