    How well do you remember your 80s lyrics?

    Here's a fun quiz to test your knowledge and memory of 80s music lyrics. Some of these will drive you crazy when you can't think of the words, even though you've heard them hundreds of times. Be sure to post your score back here for all to see.

    http://www.yetanotherdot.com/asp/80s.html

    Hint: At the end of the quiz, you'll be asked to state which event you were born before. They penalize you quite a bit if you were born before Woodstock, so you might want to fib and pick the next-latest event if you were close. I was born in '65, so I fibbed.

    My score was 77.5.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    28.7. I guess I'm just a 70's Show kid who resented 80's music.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    117.5 - and I missed a couple because I added an "s" (every rose has its thorns and my memories have just been sold).

    Stupid grammar.

    Yeah, a couple of verb forms (hear/hears/heard) got me, plus a couple of transposed words. Like those matter. It's not like Whitesnake's lyricist was Yeats or anything.

    You were probably working in a bank in the 80's. 15% handicap on the Gen Xers.
    5 point bonus for telling me where you saw this. Thanks!

    Final Score: 97.575

    I echo redread statement - felt like kicking myself because I would get one part right - other wrong - so NO points... :dflynn:
