91. One day in Paris (Martha and the Muffins)

The most underestimated album of the eighties is undoubtedly This is the ice-age by Canadian New Wave band Martha and the Muffins (image credit) from 1981. It even was not available on CD until 2005, in spite of all the attempts by the band and their fans! By far the best song on an amazing album is the dreamy One day in Paris. Right from the fragile atmospheric start, with the distant sounds of Parisian church bells on a Sunday morning, this exquisite piano-dominated ballad evokes a beautiful day in the City of Light.

Other songs by this act that would have qualified: not applicable.
