  1. These "Monsters of Rock" cruises sound epic. What's the male to female ratio?
  2. "Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs" (a legendary Aussie band) released a song in 1964 called "Mashed Potato". It was a cover, but still managed to reach top 10 nationally at the time. When it comes to songwriting, sometimes less is more.
  3. Not music related, but I think we've all been there at least once in our lives. The commentary is the best part. What a legend this guy is.
  4. Spending $50 on an album in the 9th Grade! That's hardcore man. I salute you.
  5. You've put in a lot of time setting this up. Thanks for that mate, but this is one of your hardest one's yet! I know it's a cop out, but I couldn't possibly pick a favorite album (from the 80s) and most songs for me are memorable.
  6. Yes, I may have been a bit hasty about the discography, but I still think it overshadows the album.
  7. Came across this youtube video today about "The Look". What a great band Roxette were, what a great talent Marie was and what a great musical culture the swedes are.
  8. Not only does this song overshadow the rest of the album, but IMHO it arguably overshadows the rest of the discography.
  9. Great track and great question. I wonder if Andrew over at MelodicRock has ever tested the waters with Juno and the boys. I reckon a new album would be very well received to say the least.
  10. I heard this one today and remembered what a "mighty" track it was. I picked this one up as a blind purchase when it was released. The album cover, the image, everything was right. They open with "Nightmares" and I was blown away. One of my favourite songs. Unfortunately, the rest of the album was a huge disappointment. To be fair, I haven't listened to the full album for a while, but "Nightmares" was such a hard act to follow.
  11. After a night of Dokken and Lynch Mob, you can imagine how the place would absolutely go off when Don and George hit the stage together at the end. I'm guessing however, that Don's recent surgery issues have put the kibosh on any tour in the near future. It's a shame. I hope he gets well. The same thing happened to my grandfather. We talk about replacing lead singers in bands all the time, but it's a bit hard when the band is named after the guy. I guess unlike Warrant or Van Halen say, Dokken is definitely an example of no Don, no Dokken.

    Is the Lingerie League still a thing? Now that's my kind of football.
  13. Here's four great songs from a great eclectic album. More like "Album of the day".
  14. Thanks again for the time and effort put in guys.
  15. I noticed this popped up as a new addition to the main site and was intrigued. Wanted to find out more info, so thanks for posting mate.
  16. It's interesting how the "Talk Box" was used by Peter Frampton on one of the most popular songs and live albums ever ("Frampton Comes Alive" was a commercial monster), yet it's rarely ever been done well or even seen since. The only example I can really think of at the moment is "Kickstart My Heart".
  17. I think you're all forgetting the retrospective that was released last year entitled "Barry Manilow - The Man In Me". Very much up Dan's alley, so to speak. Could be a contender.
  18. Had this one pumping in the car today several times. I love this track, but there's nothing to post from youtube unfortunately. Swedish Erotica - Down 2 Bizniz.
  19. Sooo....late. I remember this was not long before I had my new phone "waterproofed". The old one didn't make it.
  20. Well there you go. Love "One Desire" and The "Sturm und Drang" albums are great, but I didn't know the connection until know. Thanks mate! You're a Rockstar! This is why I love this site.
