Before I post my list, I want to give props to B-F for "Echo Beach," and CS for "Elspeth of Nottingham." I enjoyed both of those tunes very much. Unfortunately, there were so many noms this time that I grew up with that mean so much to me there's not room for new stuff. :crazy:

Also, Viaene... Fleetwood Mac is one of my all-time favorite bands, and "I'm So Afraid" is a wonderful song... but, for reasons I won't get into here, I can't handle hearing it anymore. Sorry...

here goes...

1. Fool If You Think it's Over ~ Chris Rea

2. Help Me, Rhonda ~ Beach Boys

3. Smokin' ~ Boston

4. Rock'n Me ~ Steve Miller

5. How Do You Do ~ Mouth and MacNeal

6. I Will Remember You ~ Sarah McLachlan

8. Feel Like A Number ~ Bob Seger

1] In The City - The Jam (1977)

You better listen, man...the kids know where it's at.

2] That's The Way Love Goes - Janet Jackson (1993)

Janet at her best.

3] Little Bit O' Soul - The Music Explosion (1967)

I always sing, "Now when you're feelin' low and a fish walks by." Not quite sure why.

4] White Punks On Dope - The Tubes (1977)

Fee rocks me in places I won't discuss in public.

5] Groove Me - King Floyd (1970)

Awww, sookie sookie now...

6] Fool If You Think It's Over - Chris Rea (1978)

Miss Teenage Dream, such a tragic scene

7] Goodnight Saigon - Billy Joel (1982)

Billy used to get all the local Vietnam vets to sing backup on this in his concerts back in the day. Very powerful stuff.

8] Fire Woman - The Cult (1989)

I used to sing this so loud that I'm surprised I have vocal chords left.

9] It's Sad To Belong - England Dan and John Ford Coley (1977)

A classic Peaches clutching a hand to her broken heart song.

10] Sentimental Lady - Bob Welch (1977)

14 joys and a will to be merry. I don't even know what the hell that means, but I like it.
