What a sick, twisted game. Between the breakdancers, skateboard freaks, tornadoes, and Death himself, Paperboy had challenge and a dark sense of humor. Hell, you got bonus points for breaking people's windows and knocking over gravestones. This repetitive ditty was a satirical send-up of middle class bliss. It's a bit mundane when compared to the other songs on this list, but that's the whole point. Pretty yet plain on the outside, but who knows what lurks beneath? That's suburbia – and Paperboy – in a nutshell.
