Flashback Track Friday #92

First off, I must apologize for these damn BIG apostrophe marks! Nothing I can do about them except change my site theme and that’s not gonna happen so please excuse me.

Welcome once again to Flashback Track Friday. Each week, one of us will present a song to you, and out of that song, will prompt you with a question.

Another guest post today from the wonderful Nancy, The Sicilian Storyteller. And what a treat we have this week! Over to you, Nancy.
