81 Tom Sawyer - Rush Tom Sawyer - Rush

this is 1 of the best songs. friekishly hard to play on drums, i no, and im good. my bro plays bass, and its hard

Learned to play drums back in the 80's listening to this. Peart is unreal...a god on drums...

82 In the Air Tonight - Phil Collins In the Air Tonight - Phil Collins
83 Rio - Duran Duran Rio - Duran Duran
84 I Ran (So Far Away) - A Flock of Seagulls I Ran (So Far Away) - A Flock of Seagulls

I conquered Iran in EU4, don't know why, so I ran, Iran's so far away, didn't get away.

85 I Am the Resurrection - The Stone Roses I Am the Resurrection - The Stone Roses

Four pages and no Stone Roses song. this is easily their best, especially the jam session at the end for the last 4 minutes of the song.

86 Dancing In the Dark - Bruce Springsteen Dancing In the Dark - Bruce Springsteen

I absolutely love this song! Great song to dance and sing to! Great for dances and entrainment at functions! Amazing dancing beat and a fun song to sing in groups! Old time Classic!

What's Bruce doing at rank number 78? This is an internet crime.

THIS one gives me hope

Young Janet here. Liked her when she got a little bit older. The song where she's dancing in the studio in black, climbing on chairs etc. Yeah, that one...this one, ehhh...

94 Dirty Diana - Michael Jackson Dirty Diana - Michael Jackson

"I think Michael's got something going on here."

They had sooo many great tunes, this being one of em. Just a fantastic rock group. From easy listening dance to full out rock, they did it all well.
