About This Quiz

WE LOVE THE '80S! While each decade has its own style and culture that makes it loved by its fans, there's no dispute that the '80s was one of the most iconic decades EVER. Moviegoers were fawning over Top Gun and The Breakfast Club. Fashionistas were hitting the streets with neon colors and Members Only jackets. While film and fashion were great, nothing set the scene as good as a great beat. From Rock and Roll to pop hits, which iconic '80s song was written about you?

As decades go on, it's easy to see distinct changes that happened in music. While the 1960s heavily focused on Motown, the '70s made way for disco. As the 1980s emerged, music lovers tuned into the rise of rock bands and the king of pop. This era of music was heavily dominated by groups like Bon Jovi, The Police, and Aerosmith. And artists like Michael Jackson and Madonna were making pop music even more mainstream. With a slew of songs from these artists, which of their songs would've been written about you?

Are you a newcomer to love? Madonna's "Like a Virgin" might best describe you! Have you loved and lost?
