Subject: All You Ever Need To Know -DONE-

Written By: mooster on 11/21/08 at 5:12 am

This is a quiz I posted many moons ago elsewhere...

I found this list of song lyrics from 80's songs that the author calls "All I Ever Needed To Know, I Learned From 80's Music" so I thought I'd post it as a quiz. Whether or not we've learnt anything from these - I'm not sure !  ;D

For #10 I was thinking that Prince had a song with diamonds in it, but I do not think it is that.

Could be it something like

The Boy Who Never Grew Up

or

Forever Young

The title has nothing to do with diamonds...

It is indeed the latter - well done  :)

Now who sang it ?  ;)

Rod Stewart?


It was by Alphaville. Good guess though. It charted in 1984 and then it was covered by the band Youth Group for an episode of The O.C. series in 2005.

Personally, I loathe the song 8-P


Quiz is now complete. Thank you to all who participated :)
