Styx.

I can't get enough of Come Sail Away....



I’m sailing away, set an open course for the virgin sea
I’ve got to be free, free to face the life that’s ahead of me
On board, I’m the captain, so climb aboard
We’ll search for tomorrow on every shore
And I’ll try, oh lord, I’ll try to carry on

I look to the sea, reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We live happily forever, so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But we’ll try best that we can to carry on

A gathering of angels appeared above my head
They sang to me this song of hope, and this is what they said
They said come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me

I thought that they were angels, but to my surprise
They climbed aboard their starship and headed for the skies
Singing come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me


That and Mr. Roboto. Every single time Mr. Roboto comes on I get quite a few bizarre stares.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

I'm a huge fan of 80s music....not really "cool" music in most social groups...

Every since Zoolander and that gaspump scene I sometimes feel a hankerin to here Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.

If we want to get into just single songs from the 80's some of the one's on my HD right now include:

Adam Ant - Goody Two Shoes
Escape Club - Wild Wild West
Huey Lewis and The News - The Power of Love
Wall of Voodoo - Mexican Radio
J Geils Band - Freeze Frame
Dead or Alive - You Spin Me Round

I really enjoy going to a trendy bar where they have one of those "online jukebox's" and downloading some old 80's hits, like the one's above, to see who's going to sing along. Besides me of course. B-) :-b

Great list! I just heard "Mexican Radio" the other day the new Boston station that's playing a lot of 80s stuff.

Huey and the boys still tour -- catch them if they play your city. They're a great band to see live. ;-D

Kelly Clarkson- Behind These Hazel Eyes :-B Watched the video a few times and liked the song.

Other than that, I play a lot more hiphop stuff like Nelly than I'm proud of.

On second thought, I have all of y'all beat. I like Faith Hill's song from a few years ago "Breathe."
