Heliocentrism is the astronomical model in which the sun is at the center of the universe. And while we now know this isn't the case, the argument could be made that the pop music industry DOES revolve around the sun. Just look at the recurrences of the word "Sun" across decades of song names!

"Sun," "Sunny," and "Sunshine" are constantly popping up in track titles and in lyrics, too. Hopefully, you're able to recall a whole bunch of them and, more importantly, who sang each.

This quiz is just for fun (maybe even fun in the sun), so don't let a lousy score rain on your parade. Be sure to share your thoughts, and let us know if we forgot your favorite sunny tune!
