Quiz: ’80s One-Hit Wonders

There was a time when your Walkman and your homemade mix tapes were sacrosanct. There was a time when your college radio station kept you glued to the newest and the latest. There was a time when you thrilled to the opening chords of an early U2 or Flock of Seagulls song. Or raced to your record store to pick up a copy of the New Musical Express paper and read what was going on “across the pond.” There were a whole bunch of great bands that came – and went – during the ‘80s. Some of their hits you may remember, some may be a bit of a headscratcher. At any rate, think back to those days of big hair, neon clothes, and ‘80s dance moves (you know what they are/were)…and see how well you recall these ‘80s one-hit wonders.
