    Default While we wait for Coachella 2013: that 80's song lyric quiz

    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?

    21. I'm not googling or losing sleep
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    But if we post the answers, it takes the challenge away from the rest of the skids.

    Thought someone would get snippy because this song was actually released in 1979 but did not chart until 1980.

    Thanks for not getting snippy.

    The single was released in late 79 but the album came out in 1980. I think it's fair to include here.

    #1 and #5 - can't think of the songs they're from.

    But I'm fairly certain I got 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 18, 19 and 20.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    "Fairly certain" doesn't work here. Post a guess at your own risk.

    The snippy-ness on some of these threads can get out of control.

    If you keep trying to keep this game going through half-assed attempts at sounding ironic by claiming that you're embarrassed to know this stuff, I will make this thread unlivable.

    You like doing something--own it.

    Oh, I own it. But I reserve the right to call something shit now that I thought was solid gold 30 years ago. No irony intended.

    Play on!

    #7 is correct



    you get partial credit for #8



    This video is horrible/awesome. From the John Stamos lookalike male protagonist to Buck Dharma's faux-gold lame blouse to the reverse burn of the album cover at the end. Enjoy this low-budget classic. Thanks, CBS records.

    What would you call Chevy Chase's hairstyle in this video? "Not-quite-a-mullet?"

    15 definitely qualifies as a torture song:
