The (Jumbled Up) Top 10 Number 1 Songs of the 80s – As Voted by Sydney!
( Jumbled up in the wrong order! Your challenge is to work out the correct order using dead easy clues – to win a dead easy $5,000!)

  • Wham! – “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go”
  • Rick Springfield – “Jessie’s Girl”
  • Moving Pictures – “What About Me”
  • Michael Jackson – “Billie Jean”
  • Men at Work – “Down Under”
  • John Farnham – “You’re the Voice”
  • INXS – “Original Sin”
  • George Michael – “Careless Whisper”
  • Dexys Midnight Runners – “Come On Eileen”
  • a-ha – “Take On Me”

And to get you started, here are the first three dead easy clues:

  1. George Michael is closer to the number one position as a solo artist than he is as a member of Wham!
  2. Wham! may have a song in the Top 10, but so does Aussie band INXS – and that INXS song got more votes.
  3. John Farnham is closer to the top spot in the Top 10 than Wham!

WEEK #1 CLUE SUMMARY:

  1. The King of Pop is closer to #1 than Wham! is, but both are behind Rick Springfield.
  2. Moving Pictures is closer to #1 than a-ha is, but both are not as close as George Michael is to #1.
  3. INXS is closer than Dexy’s Midnight Runners is to #1, but both are not as close to the top spot as Men At Work are.
  4. INXS, Wham! & Men At Work are all in the top #10, but John Farnham is closer to #1 than all three.
