80s Pop Quiz 2


	This quiz is also a productivity killer. There is no answer key, but collaboration 
	is encouraged. Extra points if you guess the artist too. 

	Warning: this is addictive once you start.... 

	When you give up, here are the answers I have so far

	--------------------

	
 	Okay here it is folks...just how much attention were you paying during that 
	wonder of decades?  Below are listed 222 lines from popular songs all from the 
	years 1980 through 1989.  Your goal is to name the artist and title of each song.
     
	You can use your own record collections as reference (giving a distinct advantage 
	to any of you who ever purchased one of those "Hits of 80s" compilations)
     
     	Hint: no artist appears more than once on the list
