How many of the top 10 best-selling albums (U.S. sales) of the 1980s can you name in three minutes? We recommend putting on your local '80s station for mood music (and possibly hints).

Our list is based on RIAA certification for albums released between 1980 and 1989, so even though lots of people bought 1979's The Wall in the '80s, it doesn't count. We're also not counting greatest hits collections or live albums, and you only need to type the name of the album. Good luck!
