25: Can’t Fight this Feeling – REO Speedwagon


Entered Charts: 18 April 1985
Entry Point: 39
Highest Chart: 1
Weeks In: 13

Throughout the 1980s, there were 137 different songs that reached number 1 on the Australian charts, including this one. Only seven of those 137 have made into this Top 30 countdown – so why did this one make the cut and not one of the 130?

That’s a question I can’t answer, to be honest. REO Speedwagon have a distinctive sound I enjoy and this is a really nice song. With that combination, it just seemed like it had to be here.
