  1. 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".
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Sooo....late. I remember this was not long before I had my new phone "waterproofed". The old one didn't make it.
  5. 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.
  6. Some classic, obscure Aussie AOR from '89. This track was all over the radio when it was released.
  7. This is a great example of how the second verse "kicks in". We have a domestic 20/20 cricket team down here called the Sydney Thunder. I've always thought this song would be great on a promo.
  8. I know you're a Jorn fan. I'll think you'll love 'em. Another thing I love about the guy is the abundance of side projects.
  9. 100% Agree. Sometimes you can't even rely on getting the same product with the same singer. As long as it's a good product, who cares.
  10. With "Giant" there are many to choose from.
  11. I've never forgotten the scalpel to the Achilles scene. Brutal.
  12. A perfect slice of MHR from the golden days.
  13. "The Logical Song" by Supertramp is another thought provoking song. This is a great clip about it's origins. Towards the end Roger Hodgson does a very small piano medley of Supertramp tracks. They really were a great band with very memorable hits. Always were and still are very radio friendly.
  14. Heard this today and clever word play or not, it still irks me.
  15. Pretty much my list also, but perhaps in a different order with Girls Girls Girls added.
  16. Never have it straight out of the jar. Try a small amount on a slice of buttered toast.
  17. I love "What I like about you" by "The Romantics", but I really love "Talking in your sleep". A far superior track with a great pre chorus. Always loved it. The clip is pure 80s, but I can't help thinking that the hair styles were a mistake.
  18. Not music related, but I found this incredibly interesting.
  19. Absolutely agree. The storage and maintenance involved is ridiculous. It's all about the music man. I could not give a shit about the medium. I just want the tunes.
  20. The good old gang vocals chorus. Brian Cox played keyboards on this album, but I'm not sure if it's him in the video. You never really get a good look at the keyboard player. I always loved the Celtic influence in the killer solo also.
  21. Songs of the day. Three of 'em. One of my favourite vocalists is also imho, very, very, underrated. Tony Martin. I love Ronnie, but without doubt the Tony Martin "Black Sabbath" era was my favourite. So many side projects as well. These three only scratch the surface.
  22. Another great pre chorus. I think being a Lead Vocalist/Drummer has got to be incredibly difficult. You could get away with it in the studio, but live is another story. I've never seen Von Groove live, but it would be interesting.
  23. Never been a big fan. "Iris" is ok, but "Long way down" is one of my favourite songs ever.
