  1. All solid choices and I would have Synchronicity at the top of my personal list as well. I think the rest of my top 5 would include Sports (Huey Lewis), Can’t Slow Down (Lionel), Cargo (Men at Work) and An Innocent Man (Billy Joel) – but I would have Frontiers, Seven and the Ragged Tiger and Pyromania as well as She’s So Unusual (Cyndi Lauper) right there as well.
