OH GOD! I knew that Split Enz song (I Got You). I heard it on the radio the other day, I was thinking about putting it on my list, but I couldn't get my phone out in time to ID it

In fact,

I didn't include it in my paragraph, but I thought about mentioning that that playlist is almost entirely a homage to the CD at work. It seems to LOVE New Wave, and that's where I first heard a lot of the songs.
