I'm afraid of me. I got 106.5. Not sure what the high score would be.

Doubtful. I remember all of those songs (and what is up with the overload of Don Henley and not even a nod to Siouxsie, The Cure, or Kate Bush.)

Crap! I only got 36.5. I should know these songs by heart!!! I didn't appreciate all of the "witty" comments at the end either. AND I didn't get a point for Jessie's Girl, because I spelled it 'Jesse'.



This just reminded me of how much I hate tests.

Totally! I would have scored higher if they had thrown in some Cure songs.

Heh heh. Definitely a pop/metal slant there. 164 for me. eeek

Ha! Some of us have shoes older than you . . .



59.0. It's hard to match up lyrics like this. Even when I got the answers I didn't recognize some of them.



But damned if that Duran Duran "Rio" tune isn't running through my feeble mind. STOP IT!

I got 40.5 .



I was born in '81 and didn't listen to much radio music 'til I hit 13 or so in 1994. I guess I kind of have an excuse, but I should have done better!!!



I really do like 80's music, though. Once I read the answers I realized how many of the songs I knew and missed. ARGH!!

Haha...I got a 103.5...and for all the ones I missed I could either sing the rest of the song and just didn't know that one line, or else it was one of my favorite songs and the clues were too short for me to recognize without the music.



Now I have about 10 different 80's songs running through my head.

I suck - I only got 23.5, but then again I am terrible at remembering song lyrics. It takes me about 50 hearings to get a basic idea of the song. But I was cracking up remembering - I even burst into song at one point and scared my cat. I explained to her that since she isn't of the 80s, she won't understand
