Song #179 in our Top 1,000 Countdown!

This pop-rock classic by Whitesnake has been steadily rising in our countdowns over the past decade as music from the 80's continues to gain popularity. Like many videos of its time, it includes plenty of shots of a sexy girl writhing around to the music. In this case, it was actress Tawny Kitaen, who would marry lead singer David Coverdale in 1989, about two years after this song was released. They divorced in 1991. Tawny also appeared in the band's videos for several other songs, including "Still of the Night" and "Is This Love."

Our Top 1,000 Countdown continues through New Year's Day.
