Recommended Posts

Little 80s music quiz, I'll give a snippet of lyrics from popular 80s tunes.

Just give the song title and artist.

Some easy,some not so.....no googling answers.

1.I never thought I'd miss you
Half as much as I do
And I never thought I'd feel this way
The way I feel about you.

2.....Every now and then
I fall apart
Turn around, bright eyes
Every now and then
I fall apart

3....Well, I'm standing here, what do I see?
A big nothing threatening me
It's so sad when you're young
To be told you're having fun.

4....I've never been closer
I tried to understand
That certain feeling
Carved by another's hand, oh
5...We're no strangers to love
You know the rules and so do I
A full commitment's what I'm thinking of
You wouldn't get this from any other guy
6...Your pop caught you smoking, and he said: "No way!"
That hypocrite smokes two packs a day
Man, living at home is such a drag
Now your mom threw away your best porno mag (Busted!).

7...Burning the ground, I break from the crowd
I'm on the hunt down, I'm after you
Scent and a sound, I'm lost and I'm found.

8.....It's 8:15, and that's the time that it's always been
We got your message on the radio, conditions normal and you're coming home.

 

i will give answers soon....if anyone replies..

Ok,this one is no particular era. Just a smidge tougher than the last quiz.

1.... 
No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes.

2...... 

Too many shadows, whispering voices
Faces on posters, too many choices
If, when, why, what?

3.... Oh God save history
God save your mad parade
Oh Lord God have mercy
All crimes are paid.

4.... Cover me with kisses, baby
Cover me with love
Roll me in designer sheets
I'll never get enough
Emotions come, I don't know why
Cover up love's alibi .

5.... What she asked of me at the end of the day
Caligula would have blushed
"You've been in the house too long" she said
And I naturally fled .

6.... 

We talk and we talk until my head explodes
I turn on the news and my body froze
These braying sheep on my TV screen
Make this boy shout, make this boy scream!.

7...

I said, "Pretend you've got no money,"
She just laughed and said, "Oh, you're so funny."
I said, "Yeah?
Well, I can't see anyone else smiling in here."

8... 

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans.

Paint it black is from 66, House of the rising sun is from 64 and Call me is from 78. I thought this was an 80's quiz.

Right you are. Dolly Parton and Hank Williams Jr both made a version during the 80's. But most people regard it as a 60's Animals song. The only version of it that was a hit.

Okay, here is my list. These are all 80's hits. Some international and some British. If there is a cover or two among them, they are only included because they were major hits in the 80's also.

 

1.
Riding through dust clouds and barren wastes
Galloping hard on the plains
Chasing the redskins back to their holes
Fighting them at their own game
Murder for freedom the stab in the back
Women and children are cowards attack

2.
It was a flight on the wings
Of a young girls dreams
That flew too far away
And we could make the monster live again
Oh hands move and heart beat on
Now life will return in this electric storm
A prophecy for a fantasy
The curse of a vivid mind

3.
You can sit around and wait for the phone to ring
Waiting for someone to tell you everything
Sit around and wonder what tomorrow will bring
Maybe a diamond ring

4.
You don't want to hurt me
But see how deep the bullet lies
Unaware I'm tearing you asunder
Ooh, there is thunder in our hearts
Is there so much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don't we?

5.
My mother told me good, my mother told me strong
She said, be true to yourself and you can't go wrong
But there's just one thing that you must understand

6.
Is there any just cause for feeling like this?
On the surface, I'm a name on a list
I try to be discreet, but then blow it again
I've lost and found, it's my final mistake
She's loving by proxy, no give and all take
Cause I've been thrilled to fantasy one too many times

7.
Let's sway while colour lights up your face
Let's sway, sway through the crowd to an empty space

8.
Strapped in the chair of the city's gas chamber
Why I'm here, I can't quite remember
The Surgeon General say's it's hazardous to breathe
I'd have another cigarette
But I can't see, tell me who you're gonna believe

 

Please include my name in your answers, like this: @zep73

@zep73 .must admit I'm stumped on all of them.

5 & 7 i could hazzard a very wild guess at the artists,but no tunes come to mind.so almost definitely not who I'm thinking of.

Maybe if others make some guesses,something will spring to mind.

That's a dead end.

 

@diddyman68 @Arbenol

 

4, 5 and 6 seems to be causing some trouble. Maybe a few hints will help.

4: It's a female singer. The title of the song resembles the title of the first song on the list.

5: Made by a male-female duo. The woman had/s very short hair.

6: I knew this one would be very hard to figure out. It's an English band. In the music video the lead singer wears a trenchcoat. Part of the song title is in parenthesis.
