365. The Way - Fastball
A nice story song. My understanding it was at least loosely based upon an actual event. A couple just up and disappeared.


364. Red, Red Wine - UB40
I still find it hard to believe this song was written by Neil Diamond. I have heard his version. Completely different.


363. Angel - Sarah McLachlan
This song kind of attached itself to the death of one of my dogs. Still cool song.

Fastball is my favorite from that group.
UB40 then the sad puppy song is last.

362. Dust in the Wind - Kansas
Sometimes the timings of the various countdowns is interesting. I think this was just on @sadchild 's countdown.


361. How Do I Make You - Linda Ronstadt
A rocking tune from a lady that does a bit of everything. Another song from the winter of 1980 disco --> rock phase.


360. Boogie Woogie Dancing Shoes - Claudja Barry
By contrast, a song from my disco phase.

Yep! #126

361. How Do I Make You - Linda Ronstadt

One of several songs from her I liked as a child. My mother was a big Linda fan.

360. Boogie Woogie Dancing Shoes - Claudja Barry

WOW! My first time hearing it. Other disco songs hear this and go "Dayyyyyum! That's so disco!" LOL I may have to download it for the next time I'm on a a late 70s/early 80s disco/funk kick myself.

The only available version from ITunes is a cover version by PMC Allstars. It's ok but not as good. Not sure why the original has not been made available.

More than likely licensing. Same reason Eddy Grant's "Electric Avenue" isn't available on Apple Music OR Spotify.

359. Rock 'N Roll Is a Vicious Game - April Wine
A rock ballad about the perils of Rock and Roll music.


358. Silent Running - Mike + The Mechanics
Cool song. By video looks to be from a movie. Never seen the movie or heard of it.


357. Who are You - The Who
Who the Fuck are You. Love that lyric. CSI anyone?

A very cool song I don't hear enough.

357. Who are You - The Who

I like this song a lot (it's on my 500+), despite having no idea why the verse lyrics are what they are. I know it's about Pete getting wasted, but... Hiccuped? Rin Tin TIn? I only feel right on my knees, I spit out like a sewer hole?

I always loved the Mike + The Mechanics stuff. Especially this one.
Another big 80's production song.

I always thought the video was just it's own mini-movie. I didn't know there were bits from an actual movie mixed in. Apparently, there isn't very much of a connection between the two.

I am only going by the markers on the youtube video. Always possible the movie was/is fake.

356. My Sharona - The Knack
Hard not to move when you hear this one. Very catchy beat. It's funny listening to 1979 countdowns with this song in it and hear Kasey comparing them to the Beatles and projecting their career.


355. Don't You Want Me - The Human League
Hard to believe the original version of this song had only 1 singer. Works much better with 2.


354. Coming Home - Ian Thomas
Dave Thomas' brother.
