Those songs that just....

Recommended Posts

I was just posting to another topic and one of those songs came on that gives me goose bumps every time. There are different ones that do it for me, but this one happened to be...

 

Leatherwolf - Thunder

 

Everytime that beat starts and then when they hit that chorus:

"(I am the thunder)

That starts the rain

(I see the heavens)

Open the gates

(I am the lightning)

That lights up the sky

(I have the answer)

The secret is mine"

 

Would've loved to see this live with 20,000 plus rock heads back in the day. Ahhh, the good ol' days.

 

So what song "does it" for you?

I'd have to go with a soppy AOR ballad on this one!

 

ROBBY VALENTINE - Over and Over Again

 

My all-time fave ballad (just re-recorded for his new 'Best of' album) that has great piano/keyboards and a lush chorus. I know a lot of people don't like his vocals, and his live show is a complete mess (he tries to do too much at once), but every play of this tune gives me goosebumps.

'Surrender' and 'Still' by Steelhouse Lane. Perfection.

 

Also, 'Porcelain' by Cauterize.

The bit on Rush 2112 where the voice comes in

 

"Attention all planets of the solar federation

Attention all planets of the solar federation

Attention all planets of the solar federation

We have assumed control.

We have assumed control.

We have assumed control."

 

 

Still gives me goose bumps after all these years!

Tumbleweed by Love/Hate, especially when Jizzy screams, "Ahhhh...I'm a tumbleweeeeeeeed!" Awesome.

 

And Badger Badger by Tygers of Pan Tang. :band:

    • Brilliant album...oh how I pine for a follow up 
    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
