LOOKING FOR THE ARTIST OF A LATE 80S ROCK SONG

Recommended Posts

Hiya dutch! ;)

Okay, a bit more help? Solo artist or band? male or female singer? what type of sound, ie hard rock, pop, etc ....

I thought of Ride the Tiger ~ Jefferson Starship, but that's from '74. :P

Maybe Ride Like The Wind by Christopher Cross?

But he was no one hit wonder to be sure.And Ride Like The Wind came out earlier than 89.

Do you remember the tempo of the song? Fast, slow?

Poison released a song in 1990 Ride the Wind Link

But it's Poison, it's not a one hit wonder (it charted, twice) and it looks like it's bangin'. My audio isn't working, so I can't tell for sure. :P

This was my first thought, though I'm surprised it's not older than '95.

Perhaps "Life Is a Highway" by Tom Cochrane

How about "Ride The Train" by Alabama? It came out in 1990... It's a fairly fast-paced song, but I don't know about the bass part...

Orange Blossom Special, the Wabash Cannonball, the Chattanooga ChooChoo,

this hobo's seen 'em all.

I've watched the Sante Fe lay her smoke against the sky and listen to old number three rollin' through the night.

Ride the train. Ride the train.

Anywhere I'm going I ride trains.

Sleepin' in a boxcar when it rains.

Ride the train, ride the train.

Southern Pacific, the Overland Express and up ahead the coal cars of

West Virginia's best.

And Oklahoma's Frisco, the biggest one of all.

I've listened to the Silver Steed's lonesome midnight call.

Ride the train. Ride the train.

Anywhere I'm going I ride trains.

Sleepin' in a boxcar when it rains.

Ride the train, ride the train.

Ride the train.

Trains
