The first cassette I ever bought (again, here I go dating myself) was 1987’s “Kick” by INXS (RIP Michael Hutchence). I loved this album, and still do. This song, “Never Tear Us Apart” is a classic among classics.
“She Just Couldn’t Stay” by Trembling Blue Stars
I don’t think a lot of people know/remember this band, but this song was one of my favorites for a while…really pretty melody/lyric.
