    WHY DON’T I KNOW THESE?!? I grew up in the eighties. Am I too old to remember now? But I’m going with Jolt for the last one…

  2. Kat says:

    I know the first one. It starts with a “T”.

    I think I know number three.

    I think I also know the answer to No. 5. It packs quite a J***.

    These are fun. Can’t wait to see the answer.

  3. Rosslyn says:

    I think I have 2 out of 5.

  4. gzusfreek says:

    Without google I don’t know any! Did I live a different 80’s? Maybe a dimension next to the 80’s? 🙂 Can’t wait for the answers!

  5. Lynn Rush says:

    Want a hint? #2….. Like, fer shur, dude. Totally…..

  6. Avily Jerome says:

    Wow. I don’t know any of these.

    But then again, I’m VERY young… 🙂

  7. Kat says:

    Oh! Geez I do know the answer to No. 4. Duh!

  8. Darn it, I only knew Peter Gabriel and Jolt. I know follow-up trivia about both of those, though. I was a huge fan of Gabriel, Genesis, and Collins–right up until Susudio sounded the death knell of the last two. Gabriel held up nicely, though. And in Collins’ defense, he is literally deaf now.

  9. Oh, wait, was I not supposed to say? Sorry about that!

  10. Sarah says:

    Molly Ringwald for #3, only because I’ve seen every movie she’s ever been in. I’m an eighties gal through and through.
