Continuing our five-year cycle, this month”s intros quiz covers the year 1984: all songs were single releases in that year.

As always, each of the 20 intros is 5-7 seconds in length (an easy one is actually just four seconds long, cutting off just as the singer begins to croon). I will post the answers in the comments section by Thursday. If you can”t wait till then to find out what the blasted number 4 is, please feel free to e-mail me or, better, message me on Facebook. If you”re not my FB friend, click here and become one.
