Good quiz, though perhaps a bit too strict on the song names. Took me forever to get Hold me, thrill me, floss me, bill me... or however that goes.

I've only heard the Huey Lewis song once that I can remember, and I thought he was singing about wanting a new truck. Course, I was living in Texas then, so it seemed a completely natural thing to be singing about.

hahaha... I think that is a common mis-hearing of those lyrics.

and yeah I know the U2 song has a name that's difficult to remember. I rarely get that one right, myself. I could add type-ins but, with four different completely interchangeable commands, there are more possible combinations than there are allowable type-ins and that's not even counting the possibility of someone substituting incorrect particles. I think I'll leave that one for the cheaters who use google.

He's got a bunch of new songs. He promised 8 videos in 8 days. I enjoyed the Blurred Lines parody called Word Crimes.

I'm sure I wouldn't have forgotten the first one. I think both of these songs showed up on previous Weird Al quizzes. There was one that was featured and one that was just user-created. I made this quiz and called it #3 to fill in the gaps missing from those two.
