The songs found on this list are, in my opinion, the best-ever songs by The Babys and John Waite.
Accoring to Wikipedia, The Babys were a British rock group best known for their songs “Isn’t It Time,” and “Every Time I Think of You.” Both songs were composed by Jack Conrad and Ray Kennedy, and reached #13 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in the late 1970s. The 1976–1978 Babys line-up consisted of keyboard player/guitarist Michael Corby, vocalist John Waite, drummer Tony Brock and guitarist Wally Stocker.
After Corby was unexpectedly sacked by Chrysalis in August 1978, a replacement was sought and the company brought in two musicians to replace the co-founder: Jonathan Cain on keyboards and Ricky Phillips to play bass. From 1979 until the final breakup in 1981, The Babys line-up consisted of vocalist Waite, drummer Brock, bassist Phillips, guitarist Stocker, and keyboardist Cain.
Criteria for this ranking:
• Sing-able melody
• Memorable and catchy
• Superb singing, lyrics, guitar work
