Pop Quiz | New Wave P1.

While are all in lockdown I’m going to run a weekly Saturday morning pop quiz, focussing on the 1980s, which means from the very late 70s to the very early 90s. Each week will take a different musical theme from the era, so that people with different musical tastes get an even chance.

This weeks quiz is 25 hits from the post punk/new wave era.

Just to make it a bit more challenging I’ve removed the verses and chorus from each track leaving only the intro and the outro.

You can send me the answers via Facebook, Twitter or email (the links should be at the top of the page). I’ll try and keep a leader board over the next few months.

Answers in a few days.

Happy listening!
