The '80s was the decade of big hair and blockbuster songs. Iconic artists such as Prince, Michael Jackson, Phil Collins, and Madonna made their mark on the music industry. Groups such as Tears for Fears, The Police, Men at Work, and U2 also gave us more than a few memorable ditties. Assuming you did more than sing along to the chorus of these songs, you should be able to recognize these iconic tunes.

Do you remember "How can you just leave me standing, alone in a world that's so cold? Maybe I'm just too demanding. Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold"? These words are from Prince's blockbuster hit "When Doves Cry." Speaking of Prince, do you remember, "I guess I should have known by the way you parked your car sideways that it wouldn't last. See, you're the kind of person that believes in makin' out once. Love 'em and leave 'em fast"? These are the opening lyrics from Red Corvette, one of our favorites.
