7 of 10. I remembered all the songs, but a bit fuzzy on the release year.

Me, too. I tripped up on Nat king Cole and Sam Cooke.

Now the version of "Summertime" I like, and which happened to be released in 1966, was the one by (the late) Billy Stewart (I have it on the Candlelite Music "House Party" compilation album). Stewart *really* gave that song a great treatment (I also remember one of my cousins in Pennsylvania had a copy of that 45 on the black Chess label with "Chicago 16" in the rim print, meaning Chicago zip code 60616). I'm not sure if Cooke's version was before or after Stewart's, but I did discover the Marcels ("Blue Moon") had a version of "Summertime" which was released in 1962. I don't think that one was successful.

I thought “Suspicious Minds” came out in 1970. I found out it came out in 1969...
