Nice to do a quiz that isn't based on the U.S. charts, but only 4 minutes? I'm not the fastest typist and was nowhere near finishing. (got 43 though) :^)

Loved this quiz! (Finished 100% w/7:09 left--yeah, you kind of tickled my sweet spot here.) You might want to allow Yaz for Yazoo, as they were known as Yaz here in the US.

I take your point but that song was released in 1992, it would be invalid for this quiz anyway :)

"Cars" is actually from 1979.

Fair point but it remained in the charts into 1980 and a re-recorded version was a UK hit in 1987. It is generally linked with the 80s, just happened to be recorded 4 months before.

Excellent. Did my nut in in a couple of places. Mainly my insistence that Wishful thinking was Go West

I love these types of quizzes. Nice job. As an American, its nice to learn about groups popular over in the UK but not here. The Style Council?
