    Killer intros

    Ha! I might be doing you a disservice, but I think you're about my vintage, so you know what a big deal that song and movie was at the time. T2 was my first ever VHS bootleg, which I obtained before the official video release. As for your memory, or recall shall we say, I think you may be confusing that with the time you went on holiday to Mars.

    Killer intros

    Not a track I listen to very often for some reason, but it popped up today. Hugely commercially successful, helped in no small part with the Terminator 2 connection. Even without the soundtrack tie in it's still a killer track and intro. On of the best intros IMO. Many memories associated with this one.

    Main Site Vs Forum

    Not really a versus situation as the title implies, but more an observation. I spend a fair bit of time on the main site and i've noticed that the regular comment posters are nowhere to be seen on the forum. Really passionate posters such as rick kerch vzla, 123 charpenay, hair metal again, Doghouse Reilly, dany 69 and dare i say MetalllianStallion, amongst others, would be welcome additions to the forum. Maybe some are not confident enough with their English, but their comments show that they are more than competent. Hey, if we can understand the incoherent, dementia ridden ramblings of KarpetRydOFunk then i think you guys will be OK It also goes the other way. I've also noticed that regular forum posters don't tend to post comments on the main site. There are exceptions of course, The Rocker posts from time to time and Geoff's comments pop up all the time. Actually, it's great to have a familiar name pop up in the comments section and it's been a great help on many occasions, so thanks for that mate. Anyway, as i said, just an observation. BTW. I myself have posted main site comments on three albums.... i think. It was when i first joined and i considered it a sort of "rite of passage".

    Same here. I've never felt that way about the forum at all.

    Main Site Vs Forum

    It still amazes me how there are essentially two communities on this site. I really wish the main site comments guys would join the forum. If the Hoff can single handedly unify Germany, then perhaps this clip will help to inspire a unified heavyharmonies.

    Journey - Separate Ways (cover by Sershen & Zaritskaya)

    Sensational! One of my favourite songs. Glen's right, the original is the quintessential version. The Kelly Hansen version is a ripper,. This one is on a par with that and that singer is an absolute Goddess. I'm getting a bit of a "Megan Fox" vibe.

    H.E.A.T - Into The Great Unknown

    Good example of an ambiguous band name mate. Although Blackie's been a bit coy over the years, I'm pretty sure it stands for "White Anglo Saxon Protestant", although, I still like to think lf it in my heart as "We Are Sexual Perverts". What can I say?.....I'm a romantic.

    Song of the Day

    Fuck it. Here's another one. Great song that captures the essence of Mordred. The opening lines are brilliant. "A waif sits alone in the shadows. Disgraced in the darkest despair. 'Till fate turned his destiny towards the light".

    Song of the Day

    I was listening to the "Once and future King" albums today. I've always loved the great lyrics from Ten/Gary Hughes. Borderline poetry at times. This track in particular stands out for me. The chorus is fairly basic, only four lines which are the same except for one word. With the words Grace, Face, Sake and Wake exchanged in each line, he's managed to some up mankind's relationship with God/Religion.

    H.E.A.T - Into The Great Unknown

    I'm so glad I asked. It was purely out of curiosity. The fact they keep it a secret or what it stands for doesn't diminish my enjoyment of their music in the slightest. Good on em'! Having said that, my curiosity is at peak levels. Maybe someone should start a "guess what H.E.A.T. stands for" topic. Also, if Andrew knows, then maybe Dan has some inside information. He's been suspiciously quiet.

    You little tease!

    H.E.A.T - Into The Great Unknown

    While checking out this thread and please excuse my ignorance, I realized that I don'tknow what H.E.A.T. stands for. Anyone know?

    Bonfire - Legends

    These are the two I was waiting to hear. Not as good as the originals of course and completely unnecessary, but still great versions IMO.

    Cover songs

    I was just listening to a couple of wonderful cover songs that couldn't be more different. Adrenaline Mob's Barracuda, which is an almost note for note perfect rendition of the original (except fot the male vocals of course) and Rob Lamothe's (Riverdogs) version of paranoid which is a complete re-working of the original. Both magnificent. Just wondering what some of your favorite cover versions were and if you prefer one's that stay true to the original or ones that differ from it.

    Cover songs

    Another new cover of TOTO's "Africa". This time it's Weezer and Weird Al. Nice. Not what you'd expect.

    What's a spinnin' in your CD player?

    Great album. JLT at his best.

    Song of the Day

    Another great "mash up". A duet from a Rock God who died young and one who appears to be immortal.
  18. These were about all I could think of off the top of my head without doubling up.

    Cameltoe - Up Your Alley

    That is good stuff. The name is great for a Sleaze band, but doesn't really suit these guys. I don't know what they were thinking. Actually, I do know what they were thinking and good on 'em.
  20. Was listening to Velocity today, which has two of them and got me thinking of other related songs. Without delving into the archives, I came up with these. I'm sure there's some classics i've missed, but these were just off the top of my head.

    Supremacy (Colombia) - Sirius

    +1. Great stuff. Thanks Stefan.

    Song titles with girls names

    Nice one.

    Songs in German

    Yeah, I think it helps to have at least a rudimentary knowledge of the language. I wish I was bilingual, but it's just English I'm afraid. Auf wiedersehen und Gesundheit.

    Don't apologize. I agree with you.

    Songs in German

    Interesting point. I guess it's like watching a foreign movie without subtitles. It could be the best movie in the world, but if I don't know what the actors are saying then it isn't as enjoyable. Just out of interest i-man, do you happen to speak German?
