go wieners! i got 83.5 (pop junkie).

missed a bunch of questions where i got one word right
but the other wrong. probably would still get it wrong
since i wasn't paying attention to lyrics anyways.

the first bonus question is abbreviated too..should
have a giddy-up in there.

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.

The current BWF Women's Champion says:

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'm actually okay with my 54.5 There are some points I just gave away ... 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.

I'm for some reason happy about my 111.5.

Again had a few where I goofed "present tense vs. past tense", and a few "Doh!" moments as well.

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...

Misspellings screwed me over so many times on things I actually knew, it got pretty rediculous after a while.

112! 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.

One Five Oh Point Oh


But then again I'm absolutely in the target demo. Plus I have a space in my long term memory reserved for useless crap.
