taking care of business

you'll have to fogive me for not posting anything the past couple of days- i've been exhausted (in addition to my usual day job, i've been on wnok all week) and i'm afraid my beauty sleep takes priority over blogging.

anyway, i somehow managed to get tagged the other day by my mossy friend, and i promised to do something about it today. (well, thursday, which ended about an hour ago, technically.) anyway, my list is below. i'll try not to repeat too many of anyone else's answers, but i can't make any serious promises, since i'm not looking at mossy or larry's lists while doing this.

(1) No repeats from other lists (or as few as possible)
(2) In order to be considered an 80s band, they must have released an album in the 80s.(i'm going to use 1979-1990 here- hope the sticklers don't mind too much.)
(3) "Alphabetical" implies that if it is a single person, you list by the last name but a band that has a person's name is listed by the first word. Therefore, Michael Jackson and Jethro Tull would both be under "J".

a-adam ant, aha, art of noise, air supply (i can't believe i thought of that one *cringe*), aerosmith, bryan adams, rick astley, paula abdul
b-big country, david bowie, toni basil, bon jovi

d- depeche mode, duran duran, ian dury, dexys midnight runners, michael damian
e-eurythmics, sheena easton, expose, the escape club, english beat
f- fleetwood mac, falco, samantha fox, lita ford, fine young cannibals
g-j. geils band (or maybe this goes under "j"- whichever), debbie gibson, guns n' roses, genesis
h- haircut 100, hooters, hall & oates, human league, whitney houston, bruce hornsby & the range, george harrison
i-inxs, icehouse, information society, billy idol, donnie iris
j-rick james, michael jackson, joe jackson, the jacksons, the jets, joan jett and the blackhearts
k-k.c. and the sunshine band, kool & the gang, the knack, johnny kemp
l- julian lennon, lisa lisa and cult jam, loverboy, kenny loggins, l.a. guns, cyndi lauper, huey lewis & the news
m-madness, musical youth, moody blues, men at work, the monkees, eddie murphy, mr. mister, bobby mc ferrin, richard marx, milli vanilli
n-new kids on the block, new edition, nelson
o-billy ocean, ozzy osbourne, sinead o' connor
p-poison, prince, robert palmer, pet shop boys
q-queen, queensryche
r- ready for the world
s-siouxsie and the banshees, billy squier, donna summer, rick springfield, simply red, starship
t-talking heads, taco, til' tuesday, tommy tutone, bonnie tyler, tina turner, tears for fears, the time, tiffany, times two
u-ultravox, u2
v- van halen
w- whitesnake, white lion, stevie wonder, warrant, steve winwood, wham
y-yaz, yes, paul young
z-z.z. top
i will probably add to this later (when i'm a little more awake). in the meantime, i'm tagging jo-anne, kunstemaecker, sojourning crow, and kal

I scored higher on the IQ test...
good thing they don't test spelling.

Mama said...

Move over, kid. At least we know from whom you got it.

Kal said...

80s music love and brains. You're gonna make some guy very happy some day.

Digitalicat said...

Holy Shit... Duff is secretly Harry Truman!

Larry said...

you two just very artfully dodged taking the IQ test. I salute each of you.

Kal said...

Oh, Okay

Your IQ Is 130

Your Logical Intelligence is Exceptional
Your Verbal Intelligence is Genius
Your Mathematical Intelligence is Exceptional
Your General Knowledge is Genius

(Do you know how many tries it took to get it that high?!?)

Larry said...

IQ 135
Your Logical Intelligence is Exceptional
Your Verbal Intelligence is Genius
Your Mathematical Intelligence is Genius
Your General Knowledge is Genius

I had to wait until at least one of you did it to do it myself(okay, to do it over and over and over, cuz my original score was a 120)

duff said...

mama: was there ever any question on that? actually, i figured you'd max out.

kal: and i can cook!

digi: crap- my secret's out. (actually, i'd love to know what the other options are.)

larry: it's okay- i'd still like you with a 120.......115, though, is another story.

Larry said...

Wow, you can cook too.

You now officially have another stalker. Don't worry, I'm a proffesional.
