Intros Quiz – 1988 Edition


Another month, another quiz. As always, 20 five-second intros to popular songs from a year, this time 1988. All were single releases in Britain or the US, except one well-known song which was an album track in 1988 but was released as a single a decade and a half later. It is a bit of a classic though, so many should get it.

Some charting clues:
1. Everybody should know that one
2. ibid
3. Big dance track, #8 in the UK (#3 US dance charts)
4. #11 UK, became a big hit later in the US, I think
5. Easy
6. Top 5 UK
7. Top 10 UK, possibly not big in the US
8. Indie classic; first released in ’88, became a hit later
9. Top 5 UK, Top 10 US (I think)
10. Hit in the US, only #60 in UK, but well known
11. Top 5 UK
12. US #2, from one 1988’s biggest albums worldwide
13. UK #1 and Us #2
14. UK Top 10 by US group (US R&B #1)
15. #1in both UK and US
16. UK Top 10
17. US hit; from one the 1988’s biggest albums
18. One for the US audiences, flop in UK
19. UK Top 10
20. Well-known album track from seminal group

As always, I’ll put up the answers in the comments in a few days. If that pesky number 15 drives you crazy, feel free to e-mail me for answers.
