  1. I must be just too fussy, or using the wrong criteria to judge cos I'm not managing to think of m(any) 10s...and nobody better say 'Typical woman' I'm just thinking of songs that i love and can't fault. I guess that makes them 10s for me. Been listening to all the songs mentioned by everyone. haven't found any I don't like yet. From yours, we listened to Ten's song twice - it's awesome Ten have some great ballads. Gary Hughes' lyrics are the closest thing to poetry you'll find in Hard Rock IMO. Check out, Valentine Till The End Of Time You're in my heart Gary Hughes so
  2. Easy to listen to. Not quite what I was expecting, but pretty good.

  4. Always thought of this one as a kind of follow up track to "Wild Child".
  5. I've mentioned this one before, but the first one that comes to mind for me is Forever Young - Tyketto There's heaps more that i consider 10s. I'll have to have a good think about it. Maybe, Midnight Love - Roxus Jet City Woman - Queensryche In A Darkened Room - Skid Row Healing Touch - Saraya Love Is A Killer - Vixen Face Down In The Gutter - XYZ Hang On Lucy - Wildside Waitin' On A Heartbreak - The Defiants The Loneliest Place In The World - Ten Spooky - Riverdogs Those are just off the top of my head, but there's many more.
  6. This to me, is an almost 10/10 song. Perfect verses and bridge. The only thing that slightly lets it down is the cheesy chorus. Still love it though - 9.999999999997
  7. Fairly old now, but i think they did a good job. Not radically different from the original, but the addition of guitar to this already great track just enhances it for mine.
  8. Was blown away by this as i'm sure you all we be too. Got me thinking about how many absolute master guitar virtuosos there have been that have gone unnoticed or unrecognized because they don't look the part. If she was hot we'd all know her name and she'd be up there with the greats.
  9. I have to agree with Geoff's sentiments on this one. Whether it comes from Germany, Japan, Spain, New Zealand etc. If i can't understand the vocals it's a deal breaker, no matter how great the music is.
  10. Cold Chisel are legendary. A great example of two lead vocalists complimenting each other. I haven't really been interested in Jimmy's stuff after "Two Fires". I believe he had huge tax issues and ever since that album i just get the vibe that he churns out as much as he can to make as much money as he can. I hate to say it, but i think he's the biggest "whore" in the Australian music industry. As for Ian Moss, probably the complete opposite. Not enough material from him over the years. He achieved commercial and critical success with his "Matchbook" Album, but that's about it really.
  11. Very, very interested!!! Tell your Dad he's an absolute legend. I've been listening to this style of music for a long time and his voice is right up there with the best of them. One of the most underrated and under used voices in the business. Any info on any other recordings he's done would be very much appreciated. Thanks for posting mate and please thank your Dad for giving me many years of listening pleasure.
  12. Ron Young from "Little Caesar" was the bikie/biker who hits Arnie with a billiard cue in the beginning of "Terminator II". Flea's been in a few - "Dudes", "Back to the future" and bandmate Anthony Kiedis was in "Point Break". There are heaps of Rock artists who have played themselves in movies. This is one of my favourites.
  13. I still like to think it's a song about fapping. What can i say, i'm a romantic.
  14. That's amazing mate. I saw this for the first time yesterday and was thinking of posting it myself tonight. BTW, does anybody know what The Vapors were referring to when they used the phrase "Turning Japanese" in the song? Lets just say that Kirsten Dunst has been responsible for turning me japanese on several occasions.
  15. Can't say i'm very familiar with much of "The Stone Roses" work.I just checked out the original, but neither that or this "Merrymouth" version is really my cup of tea i'm afraid. Ah, but are you a tea drinker? Yeah, what kind of tea? I am a tea drinker actually. Not that i have a cup of tea very often, but if given the choice between tea or coffee i'd go with tea everytime. Never been a coffee drinker at all, which i'm glad of when i see the amount of money the guys i work with spend on it. I don't know what it's like in the UK and Canada, but down here the price and pretentiousness of coff
  16. As expected, it looks like this one's coming down to the wire.
  17. All ready to give this one a spin tonight.

  19. I referred to this one in my OP, but that was when i hadn't figured out how to post vids. Thought i may as well post it now. It's a ripper!
  20. I have to agree. That's why i've never been the biggest Dangerous Toys fan. Although, i do love "Demon Bell"
  21. Throw "Everybody's Baby" into the mix with the songs already mentioned and you have a pretty great album IMHO.
  22. Interesting video about the story behind the song and John Parr's career.
  23. You never know. If this reunion is well received it may lead to something new in the studio. Maybe they're testing the waters. Fingers crossed. Judging by the "going bald" thread, it looks like these guys had more hair on their chests than most of us do on our heads these days:(
  24. Yeah, i'll definitely be getting this one. Great stuff.
