Survivor – “High on You” – (1984)

This is a rock song that screams “80s” but not necessarily “80s rock.” The music is rock with a very upbeat, almost pop like feeling – but Jimi Jamison’s lyrics, delivered in a Steve Perry-esque kind of way. It’s melodic and you could very easily mistake it for Journey. It’s weird… it’s a ballad but it’s so upbeat that it doesn’t feel like a ballad. Enough talk. Go listen to it. Here are some lyrics: “Talkin’ to myself, runnin’ in the heat. Beggin’ for your touch, in the middle of the street and I – I can’t stop thinking ’bout you girl. I must be living in a fantasy world. I’ve searched the whole world over, to find a heart so true. Such complete intoxication, I’m high on you.”
