A very simple test is to check if you can name at least ten of an artist's song titles by head without cheating. If you can't name ten that artist probably shouldn't be too high on your list.

"Funkytown" is from 1979 and "Da Da Da" is listed as a 1982 song on AM (though I see it is from a 1981 album).

Thanks. I've replaced these two. I suppose Trio will count for 1981 then.
