8/10. Obviously can't stray too far from 60s music comfort zone.

Missed Echo & The Bunnymen. Never heard of them.
They're a British New Wave band from the '80s. They are still around, I believe.

10/10. When I first saw the title "BORN TO BE WILD," {before I scrolled down and saw the list of choices,} that wasn't the song that was going through my mind. Anybody remember the 1980's song "BORN TO BE ALIVE" by Patrick Hernandez? As soon as I saw STEPPPENWOLF listed, I knew that was the right answer. I just had to see if I could locate BTBA on You Tube to see if that's the one I was thinking of, and it was. So, this song almost prevented me from getting a perfect score! Which wouldn't have bothered me in the least, as we all can't get 100% all the time.
Seeing the TURTLES listed, reminded me of this boxed set I had: It was a collection of their greatest hits on about 10 or 12 green vinyl 45's! Anyone else remember this collection?
"Born To Be Alive" by Patrick Hernandez is a '70s song, a disco song, actually. It came out during the summer of 1979.

That title is an absurd oxymoron! By definition, no one can be born to be dead, except perhaps a baby zombie...LOL!!

I love "The Killing Moon." Sometimes the references on these quizzes pleasantly surprise me.

I was 1/10.
1/10. That's sad. I'm sorry for you. As the saying goes: "Better luck, next time."

10/10! Fun Fact: Cougar was a name forced on Melloncamp by his label. When he became successful enough, he removed it!
I knew of this story and I was happy that he {to use another of his song titles:} was able to: "I Fought Authority" and instead of Authority winning, he did, by winning the rights to use his family name!

It's Mellencamp, NOT Melloncamp!

Ok, minor mistake! BTW stephanie, the title is "Authority Song", the one in which the boy watches the boxer lose, but learns how to rebel. Always remember: "I fight authority, authority always wins"!

8/10. Wild enough according to MeTV.
