I scored 101 1/2, but I'm probably in the target age group. (image removed) WARNING: 100 questions - takes FOREVER Promote this thread!

It's in the middle of his post. It just took a long time (at least for me) to load a lovely red X for me to see. -Jag But I was sooooo ready to call you on not providing a link

I only scored a 51. I started out strong, but was lost on most of them. I was also in a library where I couldn't really start humming or really speak the words. More than a few of the answers I would have gotten if I spent more time. I really need a 90's version of this game. I would SO rock that one.

Link at the top of the page. I got a 91.45, and that's with a 30% "generational penalty" or something. Yeah, I know too much about music.

See? (image removed) Linky here. I just couldn't hum some of the songs, even though I knew them... I don't remember much of the 80's. And not even in the Corey Feldman way. o.o

ICQ: # 10 Posted on 14.11.03 0327.20 Reposted on: 14.11.10 0327.37 Got a 57 myself - it's times like these I wish I had started watching MTV before 1987. Of course, I was seven when I started watching it, so take that for what it's worth. And where were the token 80's teen pop songs? No Debbie Gibson or Tiffany? BAH.

The whole experience makes me wish I had some eighties music at work today though... One line each from 100 different songs can cause some serious nostalgia.

One line each from 100 different songs can cause some serious nostalgia. Yeah, I got 104.5, but I didn't fill in the referral bonus box. I got 10 points just for Hotel California. Plus an extra 4 for knowing the Mad Max song.

I'm kicking myself at a couple for missing. Bring on the 90's quiz, and we'll see if I can't clean up there.

AIM: # 17 Posted on 14.11.03 0915.32 Reposted on: 14.11.10 0915.40 Score = 92...but shame on that dude for not putting a disclaimer (or smart ass comment) on Walk This Way...that's no 80's song...but then again many of these songs were "covers", so I guess it all evens out..."Eyem yer Venus, Eyem yer fiyahh that's yer desiahh"...ah shit. That's always a tough one to get out of my head... 83. Warm smell of colitas Rising up through the air Ok either 1)You've read The Straight Dope or 2)You are a god. Either way 10 points. Redemption! ha ha ha ha...I've never understood why that one was such a mystery. Not like the words to Twilight Zone or nothing... FLEA

Y!: # 18 Posted on 14.11.03 1005.21 Reposted on: 14.11.10 1006.18 I got 100.5, with the referral bonus and a little help from Mrs. JJD. (especially on the chick songs). Should've gotten the 10 points for Hotel California but for misspelling. (edited by JayJayDean on 14.11.03 0813)

75 here. I really didn't pay attention to the "popular" music then. If it had more synth pop and industrial, I'd be up in the 100s.
