Eighties Song Lyric Quiz

Song and Artist please.

Disclaimer: If you were born after 1972, you probably don't want to read any further.

My friends and I try to out-wit each other every Christmas with a blast from the past just to see who is closer to starting on a Namenda rx. This is a 20 song smattering of our little game. If you want to play some more, email me at santasutt@gmail.com and I will send you the whole 150 song shebang.

Try to sing these aloud, in your head, or in your dreams. Don't Google unless you feel like you are losing sleep, weight, or the esteem of friends. If you Google the lyric, it is considered cheating or giving up. It's ok, we won't judge you if you know the cheesy ones, TomAZ.

Have fun, fellow old-timers.

When we get thru the 80's, we go backwards.



1. The disco hotspots hold no charm for you.


2. Smiling, having fun. Feeling like a number one.


3. Emotional feedback on timeless wavelength.


4. And when some local kid gets down, they try and drum him out of town.


5. You can see my eyes, you can tell that I'm not lyin'.


6 If you got the money, honey, we got your disease.


7. Crazy little woman in a one man show.


8. Time to play B sides.


9. She thinks I'm crazy but I'm just growing old.


10. I'm special, so special.


11. You've got to want to succeed.


12. If everybody wants you, why isn't anybody callin'?


13. I'm shouting all about love while they treated you like a dog.


14. Maybe somewhere down the road when someone plays Purple Haze.


15. There's a world outside your window.


16. I live upstairs from you.


17. Well she used to have a carefree mind of her own.


18. There were incidents and accidents.


19. And he's peelin' off those dollar bills.


20. Why can't we give love that one more chance?

Feast on the rest of these:



101. Where can I find a woman like that?

102. In the twilight’s last gleaming this is open season.

103. Break these chains that bind you.

104. It’s no better to be safe than sorry.

105. I’ll see you when your clothes are on.

106. Could tell it wouldn’t be long ‘til he was with me.

107. Every second of the night I live another life

108. My father yells what you gonna do with your life

109. Do the pony puts us in a trance

110. ‘Cause when you say you will, it only means you won’t

111. Got me a car it’s as big as a whale

112. My lips are moving and the sound is coming out

113. I hear the wolf howl honey sniffin’ around your door

114. Her picture graced the grime on the door

115. It’s a beauty way to go

116. She says that I’m her all-time favorite

117. Checked your number twice don’t understand it

An Essay Addressing the Cultural Significance of “Take Off (to the Great White North)” by Bob and Doug McKenzie – featuring Geddy Lee


The words Canada and Culture are rarely paired. Despite our maintaining our own national borders for more approximately 150 years, many argue that Canada lacks its own identity and cultural references, and that, as a country, our culture is a mere carbon copy of pop culture emulated from examples by our neighbors to the south (USA) or our British parentage as part of the Sovereignty. There are some exceptions that are readily identified. Some of these examples are in media references that are seldom viewed outside of Canada, but occasionally appreciated by individuals without prior exposure to life in the Great White North.
SCTV, Second City Television, was born in 1976. It was a comedy skit show that ran on CBC Television, originally developed by a group of improvisational actors based in Edmonton, Alberta. SCTV presented variety comedy where a given episode could contain everything from SCTV news broadcasts to sitcoms, dramas, talk shows, kids’ shows, and/or game shows. It had everything from a mock soap opera called "The Days of the Week" ("Monday... Tuesday... Wednesday... these are... the days of the week"), to game shows like "Shoot At The Stars" in which celebrities are literally shot at like targets in a shooting gallery, to full blown movie spoofs like "Play it Again, Bob" in which Woody Allen (played by Rick Moranis) tries to get Bob Hope (played by Dave Thomas) to star in his next film.
Speaking of Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas - Enter the characters Bob and Doug McKenzie. When SCTV began developing a larger viewership, the networks demanded that a certain percentage of the show had to contain strictly Canadian content. This was a legal requirement for the broadcast and media watchdogs of the day that were moderating Canadian broadcasting. The result was a parody of Canadian characters which were featured in a comedy skit known as “Great White North”. Bob and Doug McKenzie are introduced as typical Canadian blue collar types. Their characters and the topics they discussed were a nod to Canadian culture – ice fishing, flat tires, flannel, touques, and amusing commentary. Catch phrases from the skit included, “How’s it goin’ eh?” “Beauty eh?” “What a hoser.” While using “eh” at the end of a sentence that was posed as a question was already commonplace in Canadian conversation, the widespread attention to these phrases created a cultural interest around Canadian phraseology and language. Although it was initially intended for the Canadian viewers “Great White North” segments began sneaking into US broadcasts of SCTV, and a cultural phenomenon was born. Discussion on the show usually focused on things that were considered traditionally “Canadian” – like Canadian back bacon, Canadian beer, beer related snacks, and hockey. A song, to be released on radio, was developed around some of these phrases. "Take Off - to the Great White North" was a song that captured these and other phrases, and in having Geddy Lee from Rush assist on vocals, with the character phrases in the background, gave it the push it needed to enter the Canadian pop charts.

In 1982 /83 – the opportunity arose for a movie to be filmed centred around the Great White North Characters. I remember my dad playing this movie “Strange Brew” at the movie theatre he managed when I was about 10 years old. The plot was focused on the two brothers (Bob and Doug ) trying to dupe a company by making them believe they found a dead mouse in their bottle of beer. In their attempts to extort the manufacturer, they end up getting jobs at the beer factory and get cheap beer as a result – seemingly a dream come true. What they learn is that a mysterious drug is being put in the beer to induce mind control upon the masses, and Bob and Doug consequently try to stop the brewery from taking over the world.

The movie was laughable and contained every possible reference to Canadian stereotype. What was interesting is that stereotypes were being cultivated and continually developed as a result of these characters and of this movie. But amazingly – as simple and as silly as these stereotypes seemed - these characters embraced our language, ideals, our uniqueness, language and traits in attempt to exhibit them in full view to the rest of the world.

55. You got problems in your life of love, you got a broken heart. (U.S release 1981)

66. There is no turning back – no. There is no turning back.

68. There'll be spandex jackets - one for everyone.

72. They stack the odds still we take to the street.

73. But on a midnight watch I realized why twice you ran away.

82. Give me little time, help me clear up me mind.



112. My lips are moving and the sound is coming out

113. I hear the wolf howl honey sniffin’ around your door

114. Her picture graced the grime on the door

120. And we can sing just like our fathers

121. Spread your ear pollution both far and wide

125. So what is wrong with another sin?

128. Get into a car and drive to the other side

131. City life sure is cool but it cuts like a knife

134. Lights going out and a kick in the balls

139. Can’t get food for the king

144. And I’ve given up hope on the afternoon soaps

150. C'mon, you little fighter.

This makes more sense, right?

A few sites list the the correct lyric as: "Can't get food for them kid"

Blame on my drunken friend, Murph.

Another disputed lyric in this song is

"Deep in my heart I abhor ya" as opposed to "Deep in my heart I'm a warrior."
