The Leader of the Band

There is nothing interesting happening in showbiz right now. Nada. Zip. Don't these damn celebrities know that I'm counting on them to do ridiculous things so I can use them as fodder for this blog? Ah well. I'm sure something will come up soon. In the meantime, I've devised another quiz. This should be easier than the lyrics quizzes because it's just matching. All you have to do is match the band with its lead singer. And being the anal person that I am, I've picked a band for every letter of the alphabet!

This will pretty much revolve around '80s bands because, as I'm sure you all know by now, I was a blue eyeshadow-wearing, rollerskating, leg warmer-sporting, big-haired (as big as mine could get) child of that decade. So without much further ado, your quiz....

I could only get like 11 of those, so I won't list them. I'll wait just to make sure.

Then I am going to list them all and claim that I won.

I got 8. Glad I'm not taking your class or I'd fail, and I'm not good about failure.

Please watch Being Bobby Brown. You will get all of the ridiculous celebrity stunts you'll ever need just from one episode.

I started at the bottom...

And finally went to the top...

I will just pretend that I knew all of the ones in between:)

But where's Annie Lennox and the Eurothmyics?

My hair has always been big; it was the crowning decade of my life--pun not intended ;-)

I'm from the 70's so I only got 10 (can I use that as an excuse?)

Bailey said...


No more quizzes. I do so bad on your stuff! I need to find a nerd to sit next to!

Layla said...


why don't you get liquored up and do your RP impersonation, record it and post it so we can hear. You can record some real RP and we can guess which is you and which is him :)

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
