The Big '80s Quiz Thing: Karaoke details!

Eight days till the '80s return: The Big '80s Quiz Thing is happening, Tuesday, February 5, at our glorious new NYC home of The Cutting Room. Featuring "'80s Movie Quotes: All Chopped Up!," "Ronald Reagan Had a Filthy Mouth," and tons more. Like, gnarly. (Important note: The venue is imposing a $15 minimum for the show. Pretty easy: A couple drinks, or one drink and a plate of tasty food. Come, have dinner.)

Some amazing prizes on offer too: The usual $200 grand prize, plus some tickets to The Totally Tubular Time Machine and Stomp, delicious goodies from our old friends Thumbs Cookies and the Brooklyn Brewery, and much more on the way. The best quiz prize haul anywhere in NYC, my young friends.

And yes: Live band karaoke, courtesy NYC's top live karaoke band, The Human Karaoke Experience. Starting at 7pm (30 minutes before the quiz), we'll open the doors and the band will rock our faces off…with your help. Sign up at the show, and we'll randomly pick lucky superstars to take their place with the band and sing an '80s classic. (With more singing opportunity between rounds!)

HKE are absolute pros—I'm a longtime fan of these guys, and no one's better at supporting even the most stage-frighty would-be rock star (or backing up any arena-worthy amateur wailer). Their full catalog exceeds 700 songs (really!), but we're limiting it to 132 solid-gold 1980s hits (drifting into the late '70s and early '90s in some cases). If you can't find more than a few tunes on which to stake your own rock & roll claim, I don't know how to help you.

Posting the list below, organized by artist; select your jam, and be there at 7pm to jam it out. ROCK!
