    I got 30.55 on that test. I probably have amnesia, or my mother lied about my birthdate.

    I got an 89 on the quiz. Would have done better but my coffee hasn't kicked in just yet.

    9. You remember reading "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" and all the Ramona Quimby books.

    28. You know all the words to Bon Jovi's "SHOT THROUGH THE HEART."

    29. (You just sang those words to yourself.)

    40. You're still singing "SHOT THROUGH THE HEART" in your head!

    ...ROCK ON!!
    I guess I am turning my child into an 80's child. I bought her the Fudge books and am planning on getting her the Ramona Quimby books. They were great and she will love them too.

    Now I know what CD to put on while cleaning the house.

    Sorry if most of those are a little on the darkside, but that was the 80's for me.
    Chorita you picked up the stuff that I left off my list thinking they were too offbeat for most people at a party. Nitzer Ebb, NIN, Bauhaus, Sisters, 242...those were major heavy on my car stereo playlist. (I also couldn't fiugre out if they were late 80's or early 90's cause those years were a bit, well uhhh "wild" for me and all blend together )

    Yaz and Oingo Boingo those are more great memories just reading their names again. Darn my old as the hills computer without a cd burner or I'd be spending my day off making mixes for myself.

    Lots of great songs mentioned, but I would add "Love Plus One" by Haircut 100 and "Our House" by Madness (not sure if either were mentioned)

    I love "What Is Love by Haddaway" (Is that 80's or 90's?)

    And also "The Unguarded Moment by The Church" (It puts me in a happy mood)

    I am an early 90's child and I am soooo into 80's music. Best 80's songs are from Duran Duran and Def Leppard. But I have to mention the one hit wonders such as Nena's 99 Luftballons, Mickey by Toni Basil, Shout by Tears for Fears, and the Safety Dance. Its so funny how 90's babies love 80's music.

    And no 80's collection would be complete without Miami Sound Machine (Bad Boys, Rhythm of the Night, Conga, etc.)

    And can't forget the Miami Vice influence... (Miami Sound Machine, Glen Frey, Phil Collins)
    I live in my own world. But it's ok, they know me there.
    Kid Nation... a sad day for society when the exploitation of children becomes acceptable entertainment for television viewers.
