Our 25th high school reunion is this Summer and I'm calling upon my "older" CP brethern for some help.I'm looking for songs from the mid 70's to early 80's preferrably not real mainstream but not so totally obscure that people wouldn't know it either.

One hit wonders and the like would be good too.I've already got a decent list started but as alot of you know my album collection was destroyed in a fire many years ago so I've been searching around and recalling to the best of my memory but I know there has to be some songs I'm forgetting that would bring back some great memories.

I'm looking for all genres.

Here's a sampling of what I've got so far

This Beat Goes On/Switchin' To Glide-The Kings
Teacher Teacher-Rockpile
Mind Bender-Stillwater
Had A Dream(Sleeping With The Enemy)-Roger Hodgson
Fantasy-Aldo Nova
Gold-John Stewart
I Don't Like Mondays-The Boomtown Rats
There's No Way Out Of Here-David Gilmour
Everyone's A Winner-Hot Chocolate
Johnny The Fox Meets Jimmy The Weed-Thin Lizzy
Cruel To be Kind-Nick Lowe
Get Off-Foxy
Ebony Eyes-Bob Welch
Shakedown Cruise-Jay Ferguson
Saulsalito Summer Night-Diesel
Driver's Seat-Sniff & The Tears
Children Of The Sun-Billy Thorpe
Black Sunday-Jethro Tull
Gimme Some Water-Eddie Money
The Vigil-Blue Oyster Cult



Any suggestions greatly appreciated

Bob Dole is trying to think of who he was listening to back in high school.

Molly Hatchet, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, BOC, Nazareth, Van Halen, .38 Special, ELO, Triumph, Nugent, Bad Company, Def Leopard, Scorpions, Donnie Iris, The Police, Steely Dan, Steve Miller Band, AC/DC and Kiss come immediately to mind.

Chicks were listening to Toto, Kim Carnes, John Cougar Mellencamp, Juice Newton, Christopher Cross, Elton John, Kool and the Gang, REO Speedwagon, Air Supply, James Taylor, Rick Springfield, Sheena Easton, Little River Band, Styx and The Commodores.

Can't think of any more at the moment. Damned cobwebs...

Chicks digging it or not I will not be playing any Rick Springfield or Air Supply.

As for Toto I've opted to go with the lesser heard I'll Supply The Love.
