Aww, was so hoping to see The Communards “Don’t Leave Me This Way” on here, No 1 the day I was born! (Well, in the UK anyway!)

Good quiz tho, just reminds me that I know loads of songs from the 80s, without necessarily knowing who wrote/performed them!

It is amazing to me how deep and wide the ocean of music is; here I've been listening to music for 50+ years, and I have never heard of The Communards (to my recollection). Thanks for introducing me to a new name. Although, it appears that I am familiar with their two biggest hits, albeit it their original versions by The Jackson 5, and Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes
