    O/T Mega Poptastic Pop Quiz (16)

    REMEMBER - song title and artists needed and limit 5 entries per poster before you need to take a 24 hour break to give others a chance and NO GOOGLING PLEASE (or using your old copies of Words or Disco 45 if you are old school). Pull the answers from the depths of your brain.

    18. How you gonna do it if you really don't wanna dance By standing on the wall?
    19. Lipstick cherry all over the lens as she's falling
