The Contenders: Page 8

141 Goodbye to You - Scandal
142 Just Can't Get Enough - Depeche Mode
143 Here I Go Again - Whitesnake

How is this so low, this song is the greatest ever... PERIOD

I hope people don't bash me here, but I like the 1987 version better than the 1982 version. - dingodile2603

144 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath
145 The Seventh Stranger - Duran Duran
146 Under Pressure - Queen

Covered by Vanilla Ice and turned out "Ice Ice Baby". - playstationfan66

Just ONE of my favorite songs by this great band!

147 Major Tom - Peter Schilling

What a classic; should be much higher than rank 130. - dingodile2603

Love this song….. & all this time I thought David Bowie sang this song….
**hits herself on her forehead**

148 Kickstart My Heart - Motley Crue
149 Who Can It Be Now? - Men at Work

I don't know who it can be now, but he comes from a land down under, where women glow and men plunder.

Needs to be higher!

Who can it be now?


Great Song
