Artsy et all,
There is a sight called LiquidGeneration.com that has an 80"s quiz for any who are interested. It's long but brings back a lot of memories. I am "proud" and a little embarassed to say that I scored a 93... I haven't checked in a while, so I hope it's still there.
Artsy, I really think I could give your DH a run for his money, as I remember all the groups mentioned. I still have them in my parents" basement on vinyl! I used to sneak into clubs with my older sister's ID when I was fifteen to see bands. I used to follow "the Spoons" around. Does anyone remember them?
Been there, done that, reliving it again via these threads.
My favourite bands were Howard Jones, Depeche Mode, Echo and the Bunnymen, the Cure, Culture Club, Yaz, New Order, Blue Peter, Violent Femmes, Duran Duran, Bauhaus, OMD, Altered Images, Tin Tin Duffy, the Cult, and anything British that were a one hit wonder. I played them all at my wedding ten years ago.
I used to love all the John Hughes movies. Anyone else?
