    “Graceland,” “Higher Love,” and “Don’t Worry Be Happy” are my top 3 in terms of what this category looks for.

    Beat It. Michael Jackson at his best. He also won Best Rock Vocal for this song. Michael could do it all! Beat It should be a regular spin on Classic Rock radio.

    Ehhh… not a great decade of winners. I went with Tina Turner, she had a combo of a great song, recording and being a favorite artist. “Bette Davis Eyes” had the great song & recording thing going for her and Bette Midler is a favorite artist for sure, though the song is too sentimental for me. I love the Thriller album, but “Beat It” is nowhere near the best track on it, the serious tone of those lyrics always made me laugh. Just like in album of the year the wins by Cross & Toto are embarrassing.

    1. “What’s Love Got to Do With It”- Tina Turner
    2. “Bette Davis Eyes”- Kim Carnes
    3. “Wind Beneath My Wings”- Bette Midler
    4. “Graceland”- Paul Simon
    5. “Higher Love”- Steve Winwood
    6. “We Are the World”- USA for Africa
    7. “Don’t Worry Be Happy”- Bobby McFerrin
    8. “Beat It”- Michael Jackson
    9. “Sailing”- Christopher Cross
    10. “Rosanna”- Toto

    “The Rose”, “Lady”, “Woman In Love”, “(Just Like) Starting Over”, “Always On My Mind”, “Every Breath You Take”, “Girls Just Want To Have Fun”, “Money For Nothing”, “Addicted To Love”, “Sledgehammer”, “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”, and all of the 1988 nominees other than the winner were great nominees with a lot of them being should have won scenarios.
