  • Never mind the amazing memories I have of listening to “We Built This City” while laying out in the sun with friends in the back yard by the pool. It’s still one of my all-time favorite 80’s songs, and trust me, I’m a connoisseur. “We Built This City” is the perfect summer break song — great beat, nice chord progression, and a cheesy though unusual traffic report segment.

    Now as for “Ebony and Ivory” making the list, I’m all for it. What a stupid song. I even hated it when it was popular, and wondered why in the world my parents kept playing that dumb record.
