Can You Name the Singers of These Classic Songs?
by J.P. Naomi

Are you up to date on your old time crooners? Take this quiz on classic songs and put your knowledge to the test.

Boy, pop music in the '50s and 60s sure was different from the pop music of today. However, it's important to understand that "pop" is simply short for "popular," and since what's popular is bound to vary with time, so will the way pop music sounds.

So, explanation of pop music aside, what were the classic pop artists and songs? Well, if you know that Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, and Tony Bennett were huge classic singers, then you will probably be able to identify such big hits as "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime" by Dean Martin, "My Way" by Frank Sinatra, "Moonlight Becomes You" by Bing Crosby, and "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" by Tony Bennett. In fact, if you are a true aficionado of classic songs, you can probably hear Bing Crosby's soothing rendition of "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" in your head from the mere mention of it. In fact, you just might associate all classic Christmas tunes with Bing.

Of course, this quiz isn't about Christmas songs, but these classic tunes are probably recognizable to a true music lover.

Take this quiz to test your knowledge of classic songs.
