Subject: U.S. Top 40 Rundown (1980's) [DONE!]

Written By: CeramicsFanatic on 05/05/04 at 3:08 pm

You guys know the drill!  As I've said before, the number next to the lyric corresponds with how well that song did on the U.S. charts. 

Limit: 7

NOTE: Once again I will not be replying to each post.  If you were the first to answer, and it is correct, you will see your name beside that question.  However, if your answer is wrong or somebody got in before you, I will let you know.

All of these are correct, travolta!  (Are you sure you didn't 'google' them?)  ;)

Is 'googling' bad? I didn't...I actually knew these. The Adam Ant song is one of my favorites. The others my crazy cousins and siblings have forced me to listen to all my life. I thought a couple were a little obscure...I'd be surprised if a lot of people knew 35 and 38.  ;)

IMO, 'googling' takes the fun out of playing the quiz.  I do believe that you know these...I was just giving you a hard time.  ;)

Just for future reference, and I don't want to rain on anyones parade, even though this quiz is finished, Adam Ant's "Wonderful" actually came out in '95. ;) But you guys probably already knew that. Like I said, I'm not trying to annoy anyone, I'm just a stickler for the facts. :)
