Video Quiz Answers

Dear nerds who didn't participate in the quiz - Mr. T and his friend, pain, will be paying you a visit this weekend. Don't say we didn't warn you, fools!

Dear procrastinators who meant to participate - I don't wanna hear none of your jibber jabber! You're too late! (Oddly enough, Write Procrastinator turned in his answers in a very timely fashion.)

Dear awesomely cool people who did participate - You shall remain unharmed. And now...here are your answers!

1.

L.L. Cool J, "Going Back to Cali"

2.
Rick Springfield, "Human Touch"

3.
The Cure, "Why Can't I Be You?"

4.
Rod Stewart, "Infatuation"

5.
Cyndi Lauper, "True Colors"

6.
Fleetwood Mac, "Big Love"

7.
Dokken, "Burning Like a Flame"

8.
Mary Jane Girls, "In My House"

9.
Sammy Hagar, "Give to Live"

10.
Flesh For Lulu, "I Go Crazy"


I enjoyed some of the wrong answers, especially Paticus's confusion over whether the person in #7 was Steven Tyler or Chrissie Hynde. Close, but no Don Dokken.

Tying for 3rd place with 11 points were J.C. and the aforementioned Paticus. In 2nd was fellow pop culture junkie, Malcolm with 12, and the big winner of the contest, with 13 points, was...drumroll please...my BFF, Angela! No, I didn't give her any of the answers. She knows her '80s videos, which is reason #54 that we are such good friends.

The BFF and I in the very early '90s. Those were the hair days of our lives.

Dammit! I got here too late. Good thing, though, because I would have embarrassed myself with just two or three correct answers.

J.C. said...

Damn...I totally forgot about going back to Cali!! I like being in 3rd, 3rd, 3rd; I like being in 3rd, uh, I don't think so! Forgive me...I will try harder next time Beck!

Yeah I WON!!! Very exciting. Not so exciting is that photo you posted of us and our great hair, with me in my big man clothes phase. Jesus, I do love how our hair looked. The good ole days.

Who the fuck is Dokken?!?!

Bluez said...

hey I was busy having babies and trying to remain semi normal in the 80's.

fran said...

I can't believe I mistook Rod Stewart for Nick Rhodes. Then again, Rod Stewart should be more embarrassed about it than I am.

Congrats to the winners, this was one hard ass quiz.

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

I'm not late, I just knew I didn't know any so I was biding my time waiting for it to pass...

So where was the pic of you taken? A locker room?

I remember the big haired girls from the "day" more than the bands.

Nice photo Steeler-chick

Suze's Sass said...

Oh I love shiny, permed hair. That was me in the 80's and early part of the 90's. We're too cool.

Bubs said...

Seeing the Dokken video there reminded me, we have a metal cover band (ACDC, Dokken and a few others were mentioned on the flyer) playing at our July 4th fair this year. Heh.

Writeprocrastinator said...

The fact that I mistook Robert Smith for a Thompson Triplet, er, Twin, means that I will never enter a contest like this again.

Scott said...

I was going to take this quiz but you pretty much stumped me, which I consider quite a feat. Hey, I just won $200,800 in one game of Rock & Roll Jeopardy online! I should be able to name more than 3 of these videos!

Great idea for a quiz.

Look at you, you little vixen! That is some serious Sara whatsherface from "Rosanne" hair you're sporting!

 

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.
