Friday Funday Trivia: 15 of the 100 Greatest Songs of the 1980s


Recently, I found a list of the 100 Greatest Songs of the 1980s. Below are 3 montages containing screenshots from the videos of 15 of those songs. You have to correctly identify the song. To enlarge the montages, click on them.  Below the montages are the point values for each photo (40 pts total). Along with thevalues for each photo, there are 3 bonus questions as well totaling 10 pts. 

Also, if you can correctly identify the lowest ranked song among these 15, you can earn 5 bonus pts.  Please note this doesn't necessarily mean the song in question is ranked #100. It just means it's the lowest ranked of these 15 songs on the list. 
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 photo/photo set, 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 Sunday night (9/29) at 11:59 PM EST. The answers will be posted on Monday, September 30th.

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!
