Triumph may be one of the most underrated bands of the 80s. These guys were great!

73You May Be Right - Billy Joel
74Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne

This is one of my favorites as a little kid me and my dad would sing along to this song together every time we hear it. We love to talk about the history of music and about famous songs together it's fun 😄 I love my dad
