#1: Cinderella’s “Coming Home.”
The song’s credentials: a great guitar riff, a soaring chorus, Tom Kifer’s laboring falsetto, and at 3:12, a triumphant rock ‘n’ roll moment. Everything hair rock should be. And it’s of course a power ballad, hair rock’s defining gift to music.
Call me crazy, but I want Joe Henry to do a cover of this song. Or Solomon Burke.
