    LOVE Tom’s Diner, but not sure my students will. I’m going through ALL my old songs trying to find other possibilities, and just came across “Driving My Life Away” – Eddie Rabbitt. Still not sure it’s the best choice, but lyrics are quite simple.

    It was a long time ago, but my students quite liked the dance remix. Thanks for the recommendation, will check it out.
