Another favourite from the 80s.

Classic song! Gotta love the 80's :))

AMAZING! A classic and still great to listen to whether you wanna calm down or even if your at a party (and you want to recreate the scene from Transformers with this song). Either way it's pretty awesome!
*****
Great track.

Oh, this. Meh, okay.

Very cool song.

Beautiful dark melody matched to wonderful lyrics (by Orr). Complex song, Ocasek is some talent.
