Enjoy the silence is their most well-known song, and would fill the gap between 87 and 93 in this quiz. Come on, there are only 19 answers and that would make it a nice 20.

Depeche Mode +1, though I'd go with "Policy of Truth" for the song.

I do prefer "Policy of truth" as well, it would do nicely though it's probably a bit less well-known.

American Pie has the most meaningful, thoughtful and brilliant lyrics ever written. No question. Tops any garbage modern day rap or pop song where they just autotune a repeated line to a computerized beat over, and over and over...

Really? The lyrics are good, yes, but as almost stream of consciousness imagery held together by the singular event of "the day the music died" I think Dylan songs like "Subterranean Homesick Blues" and "Like a Rolling Stone" are far more "thoughtful". As for "meaningful", massively subjective but many would argue a song like "Imagine" among many others might pip it.

Can't tell if this is sarcasm?? IMHO, American Pie is a ridiculous and overrated song and it goes on FOREVER.

Same here. I saw 1978 and thought it was a typo - it should have been 1968, but then I couldn't get a D out of Richard Harris's name, so I just went with whatever "D" names I could think of from '78. I liked both Harris' version and Waylon Jennings' country remake, but then I'm a Jimmy Webb fan. (I thought Webb's Galveston was brilliant for its era, even though Glen Campbell watered down the lyrics in his version of the anti-war song.)

Donna's version was hard to avoid. It was all over the place and made people forget about Richard Who?

I missed most of the music of the '80s. It was Barney and Sesame Street songs at our house during those years.
