Quiz Description

My last "Music of the 70s and 80s" quiz couldn't possibly have covered the entire spectrum of music in those two decades -- so here's another one. Given three songs from the 70s and/or 80s and the highest chart position and year of the highest-charting of those songs, identify the musical act. Note that some of these artists may have had higher-charting singles other than the ones listed here, and that some of these songs may be covers.
