    Totally Awesome 80s Pop Music Trivia Book

    When I saw the cover of THE TOTALLY AWESOME 80S POP MUSIC TRIVIA BOOK, I simply had to buy it!!! The cover has a beautiful sketch of Michael Jackson in profile, circa his 'Bad' World Tour. After I bought the book, I discovered just how much fun the 80s were! My friends and I had fun trying to answer the questions, and I especially enjoyed the fill in the blank quizzes, and the guess the song by lyrics section. It's a great book to have at parties!

    Totally Awesome 80s Pop Music Trivia Book

    Just finished reading the Totally Awesome 80s Pop Music Trivia Book, and I had an enjoyable time. The book brought back a lot of fuzzy yet happy memories of the 80s. The book has some hilarious passages that made me laugh! If you have fond memories of the 'Me Decade', then this would be a good book for you. If you can't stand Boy George, the Material Girl or music with synthesizers, then you might want to avoid this book.
