HUN’s 80s intro quiz!
Hi pop fans. As you may know if you’re a regular visitor to The Blog Up North, I never knowingly let a bandwagon pass by without trying to leap onto it. On this occasion, said bandwagon ties in nicely with my love of music from the decade taste and decency forgot: The 80s!
Just a few short weeks ago, top blogger and all-round good egg, Paula at Battling On, vexed us all with a couple of dastardly album cover quizzes (here and here). I responded in a sarcastic and wound-licking way with a poptastic odd one out quiz, but I now realise this doesn’t do the pop quiz genre justice.
And so, for a bit of Friday fun I give you my 80s intro quiz! That exclamation mark has to be on the end by law, by the way.
Listen to the clips below by pressing play on each player. At the same time, you can also be mesmerised by the pretty wave patterns. Grooooovy. I tried playing them all at once, in a mashup, but it didn’t work. Boo.
Submit your answers NOT in the comments below please, but via email firstname.lastname@example.org (put QUIZ in the subject header) and I’ll run down the roll of (dis)honour after the weekend.
It’s not difficult. All the songs were big hits in the 80s. If everyone gets top marks I may consider turning the difficulty screw next time. The prize? There is no prize really, it’s just for fun, but the bestest pop masters get regaled nay feted on these very pages. So good luck!
