Soaring classic tunes bring back so many memories of the 80s. Very happy along with modern tunes on the radio even nearly 40 years on!
Absolutly the best band of all time in my eyes. But should certantly be in the top 10 especialy with the world famous hits E.G. "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" and "Shout". The world would be in a lot of anger if these songs wernt made.
