She was one of the pioneering Woman of Rock! Girls just didn't front bands back then. She was a tiny powerhouse, winning 4 Grammy's. Definitely should be in the Top 10.V 1 Comment
This man should be WAY higher. A true Blues legend. Love ya Stevie Ray Vaughn!
The Cars is the greatest band in its time. They have their own genre alternative yet rock yet you can still dance to it and then also have a story to boot! I love the Cars always will be my favorite!
1985 was the defining moment for The Cars when during the Live Aid concert some genius put the track Who's Gonna Drive You Home? to the images of the heart-wrenching video report from the Ethiopian draught. It was a game-changer. The producers knew it playing it over and over while we wept at our T.V. screens and stuck our hands in our pockets. I remember Bob Geldoff swearing at the camera to "give us your f'ing money". But I remember that moment and those poor people more every time I hear that Cars track.
80"s is not complete without Billy Idol, "Mony, Mony" got a crowd going anywhere if you didn't ride a pony it made you want to everybody got up danced, yelled and sang! Rebel Yell and White Wedding got some movement as well.
Love "lost in emotion"
