I am on an 80s kick. So, how about a few 80s songs that I am guessing today's college students might have missed.
Tracy Chapman - Fast Car
Thompson Twins - Hold Me Now
They are one of the most under-appreciated 80s bands, although in this version you can skip the first 1:30.
Hall and Oates - Kiss On My List - Another great 80s group that should get more love.
