80s Music Trivia – Two Hit Wonders!

Chumbawamba (“Tubthumping”), Toni Basil (“Mickey”), Sir Mix A Lot (“Baby Got Back”), and Devo (“whip It”) have each earned their title of One Hit Wonders for never achieving another hit that comes close to their first.    But sometimes lightning strikes twice and bands have climbed to the top of the mountain TWICE in their career before drifting off into oblivion.   Today’s quiz is a collection of 80s artists that fit the Two Hit Wonder description.  You’ll be given the artist’s name and one of their two big hits, your mission (should you choose to take on the challenge!) is to find their other hit song from a list of fourteen choices.   If you want a harder challenge, don’t look at the song list and see if you remember the band’s other Top 20 hit on your own!
