 I fucking LOVE "Drivers Seat."

 Ah, "When I See You Smile" -- the first song I ever slow-danced to...

 I've never even heard of Sniff and the Tears before. Oddly enough most of the list provoked no strong reaction either way from me - except "Kokomo". Lord, how I hate that song. I hated it when I was a kid hearing it for the first time, and I hate it still.

 Where's Crowded f'n House?

 I love a lot of MOR stuff, but none of these songs would even make my top 40. No "There She Goes"? No "Missing You"? No "Right Here Waiting"? No "I've Had the Time of My Life"?

 Believe me, Kenny, it was a VERY hard selection process - I drove the entire household mad with my air guitar/microphone antics.

 Your list appears to imply that you have never heard (or have forgotten) Sheriff's "When I'm With You". If this is the case, I suggest putting the rest of your life on hold for a few minutes and setting yourself right.

 Let's face it, BJ - my *real* Top 10 is more like a Top 1000.

 Unless Australian soap operas have lied to me I would have thought the song that soundtracked Charlene and Scott's wedding in Neighbours, "Suddenly" by Angry Anderson would top any Melbourne based MOR poll - have you no respect for the history of your fine city?
