Which group/artist sang these classic '80s lyrics?

From the King of Pop to Blondie, can you correctly guess these Eighties stars based on their song lyrics?

Big hair, new fashion trends and an anything-goes mentality dominated the 1980s, propelling it to be one of the most influential decades to date. Those 10 years brought us television shows such as Matlock, Full House and Saved by the Bell before the decade’s end. With the classic hit TV shows also came classic hits over the radio waves, with countless standing the test of time. 

You may recognize bands like Aerosmith and artists like Janet Jackson based on song titles, but can you pick the correct band/artist based on the lyrics alone? Take the quiz and find out!

  1. ''I’ll never get enough / Emotions come, I don’t know why / Cover of love’s alibi''
  2. ''How do you think I’m going to get along without you when you’re gone?''
  3. ''Where you going? What you looking for? You know those boys don’t want to play no more with you, it’s true''
  4. ''Circus life, under the big top world, we all need the clowns to make us smile''
  5. ''The ride with you was worth the fall my friend. Loving you makes life worth living''
  6. ''Then every head turned with the eyes that dreamed of being the one''
  7. ''She’s deadly, man, she could really rip your world apart''
  8. ''Most of freedom and of pleasure, nothing ever lasts forever''
  9. ''Some boys take a beautiful girl and hide her away from the rest of the world''
  10. ''You don’t have to be rich to be my girl, you don’t have to be cool to rule my world''

From the results below, and the comments, and my first impression, and your choice of lyrics, make your definition of "classic" questions questionable.
