Eighties, Baby

"You grew up to this. No Bonus. No penalty.
5 point bonus for telling me where you saw this. Thanks!
Final Score: 96"

The really sad thing here is that some of my favorite songs and bands I missed the lyrics to- like INXS!!! It's really hard to see the words and get the music to them in your head so that you can fill in those blanks. Plus, some of them I never knew the lyrics to back then either.

You have to be very careful with your spellings and you do not get points per correct word- it's all or nothing per question as far as this scorer is concerned. It is a lot of fun, and yet very frustrating, trying to get all the blanks filled in. Don't be afraid to guess. You may know more than you think!

BTW- I always include where I snatched these quizzes from because I think it is the courteous thing to do, but I lost track of who's blog that I got this from. If it was your blog- please forgive me!! As soon as I find out, I will put it here. Evil Science Chick! ...I knew I'd remember eventually.

ESC- I only cite back to where I got it. I don't feel right copying blog content without giving credit to my source. Besides- name dropping's fun and easy to do!

I seem to be caught in a weird late 60's early 70's time warp. Was there even music in the 80's?

Not really, OldRoses. There were only a few good bands and songs. Things didn't pick up again until the 90s.

Including the 5 bonus points, I recieved a score of 97.5. But more importantly, I had "Safety Dance" in my head for three hours today.

You can dance if you want to; you can leave your cares behind...Oh, the lives of carefree men. Men without hats.

TheDoc- I know! And I just got that song out of my head too!

I got a 96, which impressed me because I felt like I forogt the exact words in so many instances. "Now was that word 'feel,' 'dance,' or 'lonely?'"

Thanks for putting Safety Dance *back* in my head!

Shannon- I had the very same problem. Now was it walk, talk or stalk? Or maybe it was baby. "Baby" was my default answer.
