A Phoenix Burning

Stuck in the 80’s

Okay, so I found this over at this site

Re-posting it here.  Have fun! 

(Note: Red highlights note the ‘guesses’ from the comments.)

P.S.  Okay, so you’ve noticed the numbers got messed up???  Well, thank Mr. Baby Boy’s little button pushing fingers for that.  He pushed a button, and did something at some point, but I couldn’t figure out what he did.  Turns out he somehow moved Dire Straits from 95 to 37, messing up all the numbers following it!  *sigh*  So, I think the list is accurate now, although it doesn’t necessarily match the comment numbers.  Sorry!  Carry on!!

**  I’m ending your pain!  Those in blue were the only one’s you didn’t get.  I looked up the answers.**
