Cool guest and 80’s quiz for you today! And a few chuckles at my expense.
Worst Movies Ever blogfest. Wow! I think that was the best one yet. I got such a kick out of reading everyone’s reasons for their worst movie selections. I managed to visit everyone’s post and then some. (Which is why I took a break Tuesday morning.) But I really, really appreciate everyone who got involved in the revelry of crappy movies. All of the links now lead straight to the blogfest post, so please continue to browse, especially the later entries.
I’m just going to say it: Alex and I have nothing in common.
I write chick-lit romance; he writes sci-fi adventure.
He’s a techno-gadget wizard; I recently had to Google to figure out how to turn off my hand-me-down Nano.
I’m a frequent user of the emoticon. :) He doesn’t partake of them. :(
And music? Let’s just say we have differing tastes. Sir Alex won a totally rockin’ out cool One Hit Wonders of the 80s CD in a trivia contest at my blog during A to Z, and do you know what he said? Well, I don’t remember his exact words, but it was essentially “I’ll take a pass.” For real. He took a pass on the likes of Kajagoogoo and Dexy’s Midnight Runners. Can you imagine? (Yes, I did!)
Back-to-School Sale throughout September―Three Daves and other school-related titles are only 99 cents in Kindle, Nook, and ePub! So I had to come up with something…anything…to ingratiate myself to the Ninja Master. Then it hit me…
…I’m a big fan of the 80s, as evidenced by the era in which Three Daves is set…
…he’s a big fan of heavy metal…
Metal was HUGE in the 80s! At least as huge as the hair of the musicians themselves!
And here we have it, the common ground. :)
Don’t be nervous, but right now we’re going to see how fit you are to be a member of Alex’s Army. How many of these 10 songs from the 80s can you match with the correct metal band? Give it a whirl and please let Alex know in the comments how you did (if you preferred 80s New Wave to Metal, you can let him know that too—loudly.)
Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for having me, Alex!
P.S. If you’re a book reviewer, A Tale of Many Reviews has opened up sign-ups for a Three Daves paper book tour.

All right guys – you’ve been challenged!
And if metal is not your thing, can you name any other 80’s band? Anyone? Anyone?
