Retro Tuesday: '80s Lyrics Quiz #7

Today's special edition is One-Hit Wonders of the '80s.

Name the song and the band....

1. No sex, no drugs, no wine,
no women/No fun, no sin, no you

2. If I could fly, I'd pick you up

3. Well, I talk about it
Talk about it
Talk about it
Talk about it

4. I know a guy who's tough but sweet
He's so fine, he can't be beat

5. I wish I was in Tijuana,
eating barbequed iguana

6. Can't you see
What this crazy life is doing to me

7. If you're blue and you don't know where to go to
why don't you go where fashion sits

8. 'Cause me say listen to the drummer, me say listen to the bass
Give me little music make me wind up me waist

9. But that's when she started talking about true love, started talking
about sin

10. I never needed love...like I need you

...so have at it. Answers posted later today.

Number 8 is Pass The Dutchie! I think that's the only one that stood out to me. I'm normally not good with reading lyrics, but if I heard them, I could tell you!

Thanks for the stroll down memory lane. :)
I'll be humming "Puttin' on the Ritz" all day, I just know it.

Jaye, you're doing well, but #4 is wrong.

Give me some band names, too! That's part of the challenge of One Hit Wonders. LOL!

Traci, I know. I had #2 going through my head all night when I was writing this.

And Zeus...I didn't know you were around in the '80s. ;-)

You'd think it was a Monday for as well as my brain is working today. Wow, this list brings back memories.

#2 I always used to think it was Journey. The man who sings it sounds so much like Steve Perry

#5 I've never heard of. Maybe I'd recognize it if I heard it?

#8 I don't think I ever heard until I watched The Wedding Singer. It's a catchy toon.

#10 Now this song brings back memories. I "fell in love" at 18 with a boy who was going in the army. Talk about timing ~ everything about our timing was off and after he left I would listen to this song over and over and over. That boy sure broke my heart ~ I often wonder what would have happened if our timing had been better.

Great quiz, Colleen! But to be honest, I don't know much about music from the 80's. The only two I could recongnize were #1 and 3.

Darn it! I can't belive I got 4 wrong! I would have done the band names, but I would have had to cheat.

You all did great! The only one you missed was "Into the Night" by the oh-so-famous Benny Mardones!

Stay tuned for next week's quiz.
