Wheee! What fun!

1. I used to think maybe you loved me now I know that it's true

Walking on Sunshine, Katrine and the Waves

2. Animals strike curious poses

When Doves Cry by Prince

3. Religion is a light in the fog The name of the song has just flown out of my head, but it's Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians and I could sing the whole darn thing!

I don't know where I'm going but I sure know where I've been Don't know. I thought it was "Blaze of Glory" by Jon Bon Jovi but that's "I don't know where I'm goin, only God knows where I've been" so I'm lost on this one.

If you want to find all the cops they're hanging out in the donut shops Walk Like An Egyptian by the Bangles

And there's a heart that's breaking down this long distance line tonight I Ain't Missing You At All by John Waite

I'm always working, slaving every day
Feel like I could run away, run away from this empty heart
Don't know either of those

Kick off your Sunday shoes Footloose by Kenny Loggins

Daddy says she's too young, but she's old enough for me Seventeen by Winger

He turned to me as if to say, "Hurry boy it's waiting there for you." Africa by Toto

You're not naive, you must be strong This tings a bell but I can't place it

Darken the city night is a wire, steam in the subway the earth is afire Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran

She had the body of a Venus, Lord imagine my surprise Dude Looks Like a Lady by Aerosmith


And I would just like to say, I did all that without the help of Google, which means I am waaay too obsessed with 80s music.

"And there's a heart that's breaking down this long distance line tonight"

Oh, how I loved this one.

Ya'll got these before I could. But I have a special place in my heart for Duran Duran. Hungry Like the Wolf is one of mine and my husband's songs. Don't ask.

Blogger Colleen Gleason soliloquized...

Me, too, Gypsy. Love that song.

Jaye, but I wanna know! Although, the way my mind works...maybe I can figure it out myself. ;-)

Okay, so we're missing #3, #7, #8, and #12.

I'm figuring my friend Julie (J.) will pop in any time now and figure them out...

How fun! I love 80s rock. I don't have the best memory with group names, so I'm not even going to try! But I do recognize most of the songs.

3)What I am (New Bohemians)

Not that I'm old enough to remember (cough,snort)

How do you remember all this enough to post on it???? I remember all those songs but there's no way I could give you the who and what. :)

I have Duran Duran on my iPod and I'm not ashamed.

Signed,

And Miss. Colleen,

I reached the half-way point last night. I wish I could hire a nanny so I could finish it right now. I love it!

Jana, I don't remember these all by myself. It's called GOOGLE. :-) I don't know half of them without a hint!

Liane, great going on New Bohemians!

Angela, thanks for coming by.

Heather, I'm listening to D2's greatest hits right now as I'm working and they're helping me to move along. (Of course, there's a great divide between Rio and 19th century Europe, but it works for me!

And glad you're enjoying the read! :-)

1. Walking on Sunshine ~ Katrina and the Waves
2. When Doves Cry ~ Prince
3. What I Am ~ Edie Brickel and the New Bohemians
4. Here I Go Again ~ Whitesnake
5. Walk Like an Egyptian ~ Bangels
6. I Ain’t Missing You ~ John Waite
7. Nothing but a Good Time ~ Poison
8. Shattered Dreams ~ Johnny Hates Jazz
9. Footloose ~ Kenny Loggins
10. Seventeen ~ Winger
11. Africa ~ Toto
12. No Clue
13. No Clue
14. Dude Looks Like a Lady ~ Aerosmith

I couldn't think of what 12 and 13. 10 was a big of a cheat because it's playing on the 80's station right now ~ otherwise, I probably wouldn't have been able to guess.

Great job, Devonna! Number 13 is Hungry Like the Wolf, which I think Heather and Jaye got earlier.

Looks like #12 is the stumper today. I must admit, I don't remember these particular words to this song, but I do remember the band. And the song itself. I think this was a one-hit wonder by a band with a really odd-sounding name...sounds like something a baby would say. *hint*

Hi Colleen, Great quotes sorry I did not get to it sooner, looks like you already have all the answers. I am really better at movies! Good picture, I always loved Roger! I still remember lying to my parents to go to a D2 concert at COBO! "J"

I'm pretty sure everyone has it covered by now, but I just wanted to say that I absolutely adored the photo of Duran Duran!

I enjoyed reading these and hearing the tunes playing in my head. 80's music is so great!

I didn't even bother to try this week. Was stumped on all of them.

But have to note that I saw the commercial for the 80's Trivial Pursuit which looks really cool. And Downtown Julie Brown was in the commercial and it took me WAY back :D

Holly, we play Retro Tuesday every week here, so stop back when you can!

And Annie! An '80s Trivial Pursuit? I am so there! Downtown Julie Brown...oh, I still laugh when I think of her.

Annie ~ I saw that commercial last night too! It was fun seeing Julie Brown and then Kelly LeBroc back in her Wierd Science role.

The website for the 80s Trivial Pursuit is http://www.hasbro.com/trivialpursuit80s/
