AIM: # 23 Posted on 14.11.03 1633.53 Reposted on: 14.11.10 1635.33 Ugh, 53. There were a bunch I know I should have gotten, but I'm just not used to seeing lyrics in this context.

Not as shameful as thinking that it was CLEO that dances on the sand.

AIM: # 26 Posted on 15.11.03 0048.50 Reposted on: 15.11.10 0050.02 I got 35.25. The funny thing is that I figured I wouldn't get any right unless a song from Pretty Hate Machine was in the test...and what do ya know? There is one! I pretty much embarrased myself, I guess. I also got a bonus for being too young to remember all of this. I guess I can thank Vice City, my mom (for overplaying Sade and Duran Duran), and seeing way too many commercials for Best of the 80's albums for the answers I got right. I kicked myself for missing the obvious ones.

I hate names that could either end with an "Y" or "IE", you get screwed if you pick the wrong one. It's always a total bonus when you totally guess on something and it actually comes out right(happened twice times). One answer I did know my Humgan League songs and got 4 big points out of it. WOW I totally pulled a Jim Powers LoL... Of course when that happens really had to kick myself in not picking up my Men without Hats songs. LoL SSS, I wrote down Rita dances on the sand... This was fun. (edited by Net Hack Slasher on 15.11.03 0353)

Again had a few where I goofed "present tense vs. past tense", and a few "Doh!" moments as well. (edited by cranlsn on 15.11.03 1255)

The most annoying thing was songs that instantly popped in my head but I still couldn't remember that one word. Suddenly, I feel the urge to play Millipede. Off to the PlayStation...

For being only 23, I RULE! should've been higher, but how the hell *do* you spell colitas? Also, there was some hair metal song that also worked with a Morressey song, but the author of the quiz must not have known. Poo! I deserve extra points for obscure-ness.

Y!: # 35 Posted on 18.11.03 0848.30 Reposted on: 18.11.10 0852.18 One Five Oh Point Oh FEAR THIS! But then again I'm absolutely in the target demo. Plus I have a space in my long term memory reserved for useless crap.
