not bad for being 4 years old when the 80's ended.

P.S. 83. Warm smell of colitas Rising up through the air
Ok either 1)You've read The Straight Dope or 2)You are a god. Either way 10 points.

I must be a god.

If I going to be asked to fill in the F%7*ing 80's song-o-rama, can I request a shorter f6&3@ing questionnaire. I haven't got the patience for this SHT.

RACIALLY BIASED EXAM!

But the bias favors my race so Final Score: 84.2



"You're a little young to remember all this. 10% bonus.
5 point bonus for telling me where you saw this. Thanks!"

I got 77, but lost a lot of points on technicalities like misspelling "Billie Jean" and "Jesse" and other stuff like that.

At any rate, not too bad for someone too young to remember most of the 80's!

Disappointing, considering the number of high school dances I DJ'd.

54 and five minutes out of lunch. Sigh. And I even remember the 80's, although my parents didn't believe in cable. Being raised on PBS has forever damaged my appreciation of pop culture.

Too long for me to complete it right now. But I can see that most of this survey deals with radio pop hits. In the '80s, that's not what I was listening to... I was always b*tching about the local radio stations playing the same stuff over & over.

No fair!!! Beyond Van Halen, I know NOTHING of the so-called "hair bands" of the '80s. Just not my thing.

I got a 34.5.
