The Top Ten

1 18 Til I Die - Bryan Adams

What can I say? I adore this guy and his music. Unfortunately, this track wasn't big - Irina2932

2 Bad Girl - Madonna

Musical arrangement is fantastic plus touching lyrics and Madonna's sweet voice. This is by far the most underrated Madonna song - Irina2932

3 Summer Rain - Belinda Carlisle

Vocally the greatest Belinda song! Pure brilliance but unfortunately, very overlooked - Irina2932

4 Pressure - Billy Joel

Billy recorded many "blockbuster" albums and hits but in 1982 he gave us the "The Nylon Curtain" album which wasn't that big. Too bad. I adore "Pressure" - probably my favorite Billy Joel song - Irina2932

The Nylon Curtain is Billy's second best album (after The Stranger), and this is one of the best New Wave songs. Such a shame it doesn't get much airtime. - PetSounds

5 Jesus He Knows Me - Genesis

My favorite Genesis song from "We Can't Dance" (1991). I'm sure, it deserved a much bigger recognition - Irina2932

It's a good song earning
about prosperity pastors

6 What Made You Say That - Shania Twain

Not many people know about this song. I think WMYST is one of her greatest "diamonds" - Irina2932

7 Heart of Stone - Taylor Dayne

She had some big pop hits during 1987-1990 but this beautiful song is not one of them - Irina2932

Fantastic ballad that had so many problems with release date. - Irina2932

9 Never Gonna Say I'm Sorry - Ace of Base
10 Year of the Cat - Al Stewart

This song is one of my favorites - milky
