"Send Me an Angel" by Real Life: Awesome Old Song of the Week

The Australian band Real Life originally released "Send Me an Angel" on their 1983 debut album Heartland.  In 1989 the band put out a slightly different version of the single, which was featured in the movie The Wizard.

Here's a link to the band's "Send Me an Angel '89" official music video, but I chose to use a clip from the film instead.

You take the lead actor (Fred Savage) from the best TV show on the air (The Wonder Years), have him rebel against his parents and hitchhike across the country with a cute girl he meets along the way, then base the entire thing on playing Nintendo (right at the peak of Nintendo's popularity), and you have pretty much the greatest imaginable plot scenario from the eyes of a 12 year old boy in 1989.
