  • Commenticus from Los AngelesCould have sworn Rosanna by Toto reached #1 - seemed it was always on the radio - but only #2. Thought 1980 was not an album year for Billy Joel (could have sworn Still Rock and Roll was 1981). Meh.
  • Michael from Portland OregonI got 5 out of 10 that confirms what I have always suspected. That I was only awake through half of the 80's.
  • Jayden from TorontoWow! I got 10 out of 10! The 1980s are well before I was even born and I missed out on it all. But ... we have the Web now and there's a ton of music and info everywhere. I love so many of these songs and spend a lot of time on this site and others learning all about the great artists throughout the past. The 1980s had lots of great music and great alternative music especially. A Music Revolution is coming. Wait for it!
