Released in 1986, "True Colors" by Cyndi Lauper became a true 80's classic hit after spending weeks at the top of the charts.

You may have also heard versions by Phil Collins, Kasey Chambers, the Glee cast, Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick's cover, per perhaps in the 2016 animated film Trolls.

A slightly trickier one to play, but lovely nevertheless :)
