Friday Funday Trivia: 80s Song Lyrics... Sort Of


Below are 5 keywords from the lyrics of 15 songs from the 1980s (all of which reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100). You have to correctly identify the song. The keywords are listed in the order in which they appear in the song.  Along with the values for each lyric set, there are 4 bonus questions as well totaling 10 pts.
If you are a Friday Funday Trivia virgin about to be touched for the very first time, please read the following rules before playing:

* The game is pub style so looking up the answers, using friends/family/co-workers, etc. for help,  is not allowed.

If you are the only player to correctly identify a song, you earn 5 bonus points. The first player to submit their final answers to me will earn 2 bonus points.

* Please do not post your answers in the comments section. Instead, send them to no later than Friday night (10/26) at 11:59 PM EST. The answers will be posted on Saturday, October 27th.

Not an official rule: If you have no clue, feel free to come up with an intentionally funny answer. Although you won't get credit for a correct answer, you'll get a thumbs up from me for originality, execution, and showmanship. What can I say, I love to be entertained and I'll take it any way I can get it!

Have fun and good luck!
