Lyrics Quiz: 1985

Name these songs & artists from 1985:

  1. I was beat, incomplete. I'd been had, I was sad and blue.
  2. I was working part time in a five-and-dime. My boss was Mr. McGee.
  3. Those one track minds that took you for a working boy. Kiss them goodbye.
  4. There's a city in my mind, come along and take that ride.
  5. I took a backseat, a backhander. I took her back to her room. Gonna get back to the basics for you, oh yeah.
  6. I've packed my bags. I've cleaned the floor. Watch me walkin'. Walkin' out the door.
  7. Say after me, it's no better to be safe than sorry.
  8. You'll find a god in every golden cloister. And if you're lucky, then the god's a she.
  9. Now this mountain I must climb feels like the world upon my shoulders.
  10. Everybody's hard as iron. Locked in a modern world. Dreams are make of a different stuff.
