Intros Quiz – 1986 edition

December 12th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

We continue on our five-yearly cycle of intros quizzes, revisiting 25 years ago: 1986. It was the year the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, US bombing of Tripoli and the Challenger space shuttle explosion. In South Africa the apartheid regime declared a state of emergency, Swedish prime minister Olof Palme was assassinated, Mozambican prrsident Samota Machel died in a plane crash above South Africa, and in the Philippines the tyrant Fernando Marcos was deposed. Elie Wiesel won the Nobel Peace Prize and the first computer virus, named Brain, starts to spread.

As always, twenty intros to hit songs from that year of 5-7 seconds in length. All were single releases and/or hits that year. The answers will be posted in the comments section by Thursday (so please don’t post your answers). If the pesky number 15 bugs you, go to the Contact Me tab above to request the answers, or  better, message me on Facebook. If you’re not my FB friend, click here.
