New Wave: I Melt With You by Modern English. https://pandora.app.link/3z10558Lxbb

Alternative Rock: Uninvited by Alanis Morissette. https://pandora.app.link/xkGQyClMxbb Alanis Morissette’s “Uninvited” seems to be about a lady feeling good about how a man seems crazy about her but she finds him unworthy of her. She is intrigued by this man but for some reason does not want to be with him. At the beginning of the song, she seems excited about how much he seems to like her.
Pop: The Rose by Bette Midler. https://pandora.app.link/FF2OQKzMxbb
The music and the voice and performance of Bette Midler. What a thrill it is to see an artist like Bette Midler perform to such an extreme and lofty level. What a dazzling radiant star that burned so brightly for so short a time and then was so suddenly and prematurely snuffed out. But when an artist gives so much of herself in every song she sings, it is no wonder that her life was slowly drained and eventually terminated by the fans who loved her. (The movie, The Rose, many say it was based on the short life and career of Janis Joplin).
Country: Streets Of Baltimore by Bobby Bare. https://pandora.app.link/uzl5enkNxbb "Streets of Baltimore" is a heavily covered country song written by Tompall Glaser and Harlan Howard in 1966.

Classical/Folk: Ari Sasoon/ Pique 7 by Wolgemut. https://pandora.app.link/f018M7Vewbb
Ari Sasoon & Pique 7 This song is by Wolgemut and appears on the album Schauspiluden II (1998). The first minute of this song will make you lose interest, after that first minute you will be glad you stuck with the song, (my own personal note).
Rock: Born In The U.S.A. by Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band. https://pandora.app.link/2AWtR0jfwbb “Born in the USA.” This song was written in 1981 and recorded in 1982 as the first song on Springsteen’s Born in the USA Album. Upon its release, the song quickly became a hit, and individuals around the country viewed it as a pro-American theme song. Many conservative politicians latched onto the song’s chorus, and Pres. Ronald Reagan even recognized Springsteen’s values during a reelection campaign speech. However, the song was not a pro-American statement. Instead, Bruce Springsteen wrote “Born in the USA” as a protest to the hostility and indifference that many Vietnam veterans faced when they returned to the country. The lyrics of the song’s chorus were written in irony. The song tells the story of a working-class individual who was drafted into the armed forces and exposed to numerous hardships after returning to the United States following a tour in Vietnam. This story contrasts the upbeat tune of the song and makes the ironic nature of “Born in the USA” even more impactful.
