POP QUIZ: SONG INTROS 1987 (answers)

Tough crowd this week!

I knew that ’80s pop music would bring people crawling out of the woodwork. Nice to hear from so many of you! But you had to do really well to make the leaderboard this week.

We had perfect scores, 20/20, from Kathy B, Kerri H, Jen G, Gord G, Tom A and Todd J. Way to go all of you! I said “CONGRATULATIONS!” (you have to make allowances for the elderly).

Song clips are all still up here if you want to hear them again.

01 The Bangles – Walk Like An Egyptian
02 Heart – Alone
03 Bruce Hornsby & The Range – The Way It Is
04 Bon Jovi – Livin’ On A Prayer
05 Crowded House – Don’t Dream It’s Over
06 Genesis – Land Of Confusion
07 Suzanne Vega – My Name Is Luka
08 Club Nouveau – Lean On Me
09 Michael Jackson – Bad
10 Los Lobos – La Bamba

Lots of folks wondered if I was being tricky and using Weird Al’s “Fat” instead of MJ’s “Bad”. I was not. If you listen to them side-by-side (Weird Al’s track is here) you can tell that they are slightly different and distinguishable.

Next music quiz will NOT be eighties. I’m gonna pick something that most of my friends haven’t spent their whole lives listening to, like Slovenian Folk music or something.

Thanks,
QM Bill
