80's goddess! - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
80's goddess!
Gakked from everyone.

I got two points for knowing a Schoolhouse Rock song, though. An easy Schoolhouse Rock song. Anyone who was born between, say, 1968 and 1976 could fill in the blanks in "I'm just a ______, yes I'm only a _________, and I'm sitting here on _________ ___________." I defy anyone born in those years to not have mentally filled in the blanks while reading the preceding sentence.

It just wasn't Saturday without a little pre-MTV music video or two.

And "Greatest American Hero" was on there! Sigh. We used to sing that on the bus back from any OM competition that we won. Team spirit, baby.

I do feel like I cheated a bit. I got five points for knowing the lyrics to "Africa" by Toto, which the quizmaker deemed a hard one. But it happens to be on a tape I own and used to write something set that year. I tend to listen to it when I feel poppy, so I know most of the songs on it by heart.

Now, can she sing the theme from "Family Ties"? (Well, I'll bet we've been together for a million years/And I'll bet we'll be together for a million more...) Ha.

Ah, I miss the 80s. It was a good time to be a teenager, even if they didn't like us much, and we didn't have all this overscheduling that you kids have now.

I feel a bit...: nostalgic nostalgic

Heh. Yeah, I got 10 points for knowing the correct spelling of "colitas" - but I only know that one because I own Hotel California on LP and it's in the liner notes...

That's not the best test of the eighties since it's all music lyrics. Anyone who lsitens to an eighties station could do extremely well on that.

It has succeeded in putting Dead or Alive's "You Spin Me Right Round" in my head for the last 15 minutes. And made me want to dig out Suzanne Vega's "Solitude Standing."

And ooh! I LOVED Family Ties! Alex P. Keaton was one of my first crushes. *blush*

Agh. I did horribly on that one, despite knowing a good number of the songs--they just didn't occur to me from the lyrics listed. X.x;; Agh.

Well . . . I wasn't born 'til 86, so I have an excuse. <_<;;;
