10. Peter Cetera - Glory Of Love
Yes, I am a teenager of the 80s - and proud of it.

The Chicago frontman has one EVIL stare in this video. Those are almost BOWIE eyes.
9. Johnny Cash - This Train Is Bound For Glory
A Woody Guthrie anthem that offers a counterpoint to our #2 song.
8. Leonard Cohen - Morning Glory

Oh and I could be a genius if I just put my mind to it, and I,1. Bruce Springsteen - Glory Days
I could do anything if only I could get round to it.
