Subject: Crazy Don's 1980's lyrics quiz!

Written By: Crazy Don on 06/06/02 at 11:44 a.m.

The rules are simple. áI'm gonna give you some lyric lines from 1980's songs. áAll you have to do is identify them by title and artist. áAs soon as I get a correct answer, it will appear underneath the lyric line in italics followed by the initials of the correct answerer. áHere goes:

1. áEveryone avoids me like a cyclone ranger
The Vapors--Turning Japanese (DJM) (Would have accepted the band name "The Vapours" from any non-American poster)

2. áThey talk about the U. S. inflation
Wall of Voodoo--Mexican Radio (MI)

3. áThat hypocrite smokes two packs a day
Beastie Boys--(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party) (TV9)

4. áAnd a mess is not allowed
Madness--Our House (MI)

5. áWoke up to reality and found the future not so bright
Johnny Hates Jazz--Shattered Dreams (DJM)

6. áThere's nothing wrong with my state of mental health
Men at Work--Who Can It Be Now? (TV9)

7. áIt's interesting when people die
Don Henley--Dirty Laundry (DJM)

8. áI walked through Bedford-Stuy alone
Billy Joel--You May Be Right (MI)

9. áAnimals strike curious poses
Prince--When Doves Cry (Jessica)

10. áBut like Mick Jagger said, "I can't get no satisfaction"
Tone Loc--Funky Cold Medina (80s Triv)

This quiz is now over.  Thank you very much.

Correct.  If a non-American had answered it, I would have accepted "Vapours" as the name of the band.
