Congratulations to Tony, who scored 48/50 in a 2000s music quiz that produced wildly divergent scores.
Since we competed in a 1960s the week before, where the older generation dominated, it seems only fair to split the difference and meet in the 1980s.
Your challenge is to name 25 acts from their images on their 1980s album covers. I scored 22/25 – I’m not very well versed in bands with perms….
In other news, in the past week I became two degrees of separation from Taylor Swift. My lovely former colleague Courtney Montague now manages her sister’s art business. In 2014, Kelsey Montague painted her first interactive mural in New York City. Taylor Swift posed in front of it, and posted it on Instagram. The shot went viral, launching Kelsey Montague Art to unanticipated success.
Five years later, Swift remembered Montague’s work, and commissioned her to paint a mural to launch her new single, ‘Me!’, generously shining some of the spotlight on her and meeting her in person. You can see photos here:
My newest blog title idea is “Not Even Trying To Be Cool”. Thoughts?
