Almost impossible for me to pick one favourite song from the year I was born (1978) because most of my favourite music was from around then.
Think of all the punk and post-punk: Joy Division, Misfits, Stiff Little Fingers, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Devo, Buzzcocks, The Undertones, The Clash, Tubeway Army, The Damned, etc.
Then there’s the wacky proto-80s new wave, electronics, art pop, pomp rock, and… stuff that I like: Meatloaf, Billy Joel, Kraftwerk, Kate Bush, Queen, Blondie, John Prine, etc.
