the best songs ever: the lost years - gabrielle - 06-16-2016

Here is a thread to cover the best songs of the 3T, which Eric seems to have completely skipped over in his thread, aside from a couple of New Age things.  Please  feel free to contribute, I'm sure I'll miss a lot of good stuff!  

Rather than going backwards in time, this thread will go from the beginning of the turning to the end.  I'm going to start a little earlier, though, since the early 80s really didn't get covered very well in Eric's thread.  So here we are, in the last years of the 2T--

1980:

Here is another one from about that time.  When played on the radio it was a coin toss if it would be in German or English.

Here is something that I rather liked at the time.  It both captured some of the mood at the time and yet was an escape from it.  While this is the original version it was a victim of what would later be called political correctness.






The GIs, of course, instantly recognized it and were somewhat surprised by its popularity.
