Shannon: Let the Music Play (1983)

It began as a humble, low budget synth tune with a simple video, but has ended up being one of the most anthemized and remixed powerpop songs of the 1980s.

Shannon did go on to release another moderately successful single, "Give Me Tonight", but her 1983 smash single remains her calling card and her admittance ticket to the halls of 1980s pop immortality.

The continuing appeal of the song is evidenced by the following Mary Kiani cover.

Does anyone else think Mary Kiani looks like Judge Marilyn Milian from The People's Court (a.k.a. "The Hottest Judge on Television")?
