Re: [Classic_Rock_Forever] Song of the year 1982 pt. 17


I'm not a big 80's music fan so had a real tough time compiling a top 10 list. First two on the list are probably the only songs I would be willing to listen to on a regular basis.

1. Johnny Van Zandt Band - Last of the Wild Ones [not a favorite song of his but its Van Zandt] 

2. Waylon Jennings/Willie Nelson -  May I Borrow Some Sugar From You? [because they're Waylon & Willie and they're damn cool]

3. Scarlet Party - 101 Dam-Nations [first for me, kinda reminds me of early Beatles in some parts of the song]

4. ELO - Rain is Falling [used to listen to more ELO but not much now]

5. Elkie Brooks - Fool if You Think It's Over [long forgotten song until today. Nice to hear it again]

6. Phil Collins - You Can't Hurry Love [not my favorite Collins/Genesis song but better than most other songs on the list]

7. Juice Newton - Love's Been a Little Bit Hard on Me [Its Juice and the video is funny]

8. Amy Grant - El Shaddai [not her best but I do enjoy her sweet voice]

9. Scritti Politti - Jacques Derrida [new to me and liked it -  a little]

10. REO Speedwagon - I'll Follow You [like REO sometimes but don't listen to them a lot]
