Re: Recommendation Thread: 1980 Poll

1980 had a great song released in New Zealand: Tears, by The Crocodiles. I have no idea how well it would go over for new listeners but it was a pretty big hit here back in the day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oh01Rv6Z-28 Agreed - this is a great song and also kicked off Henny Morris's career.

I have to say that I prefer the extended remixed version 'Halcyon + On + On' which appears on this album. It was a reasonably big track and ended up on l...
