songs you don't like that were released as singles


Recommended Posts

I'm sure people will disagree with some of the songs I've picked. Although I've always wondered why some weak or generally bad songs, that I don't like, were released as singles.

 

Winger - Headed For Heartbreak (God awful boring song, even if the guitar work is excellent)

 

Def Leppard - Rock Of Ages (I hit the skip button everytime)

 

Twisted Sister - Leader Of The Pack (the lame cover that killed their career)

 

Skid Row - Piece Of Me (they actually made video for that brutal song)

 

Bon Jovi - Wanted Dead or Alive (the first step towards the boring Bon Jovi we have now)

 

White Lion - Radar Love (just a bad cover all around)

 

Anymore that you know and think that should never have been released as a single or even become a hit?

I like the Winger and Def Leppard songs, though I admit there were much, much better single choices on both CDs. Totally agree with the rest. Especially the 'Radar love' cover from White Lion, which has got to be one of the worst songs ever.

 

I think of quite a few of these from time to time, but one that's fresh on my mind is 'Georgia Lights' by Southgang. With a handful of potential hits on this disc, why the hell did they release that crap as a single?

 

KISS - Rock and Roll All Nite

 

Scorpions - Wind of Change

Although they may be songs you dislike, I don't actually think they were bad single choices at all - I'd actually say they were excellent single choices. :)

I love Trixter and that song. Of course I was like 16 when that came out and saw the video on Headbangers Ball and bought the cassette a few weeks later. Although I had to get it from someone else becasue MCA for some reason put an explicit lyrics sticker on it?!?!?!?

There's plenty more but i can't be fagged thinking at the moment. I like all bands except for Extreme,who i listened to a few times from friend's cds but just couldn't get into.

 

Something about these tunes rubs me up the wrong way.

    • Yeah even though I have this already I picked up the deluxe for the bonus tracks...all 11 of em  
    • Rest In Peace Love the Lionsheart stuff..the debut is classic
    • From FaceBook   Midnite City     · IT'S OFFICIAL! We have now started work on what will become our fourth album which will be coming your way in 2023. The songs are written and the work has begun. As with our previous albums, it's never a quick process. We have a long journey ahead of us, but the work starts now! Look out for lots of studio updates
    • This is a good one. The Deluxe Edition from MelodicRock Classics looks interesting. See below:  
    • New songs. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Perfect Plan's third studio album, "Brace For Impact". Over the course of their first two albums, "All Rise" and "Time For A Miracle", the Swedes have quickly established themselves as a new gold standard in not only the Scandinavian melodic rock genre, but the melodic rock genre as a whole. "Brace For Impact" does nothing to slow that momentum and fans should do exactly as the album's title says in preparation for their latest opus.  Produced by the band, songwriting started in August 2021 for "Brace For Impact" and was wrapped up by the end of the year. The band then spent January of this year working on arrangements and pre-production work before starting the process of recording in the first week of February. Asked about the musical direction of the album, vocalist Kent Hilli says, "Well, hard question...we didn’t think too much about that when we started writing as we want everything to come naturally to us. All we focused on and wanted to do was to write really great melodic rock songs with great riffs and melodies. But I think we have more ”rockers” on this album than before. I would say that it's melodic rock in general, but maybe slightly harder than our previous albums. But much like our second album, ”Time For A Miracle” we have a great mixture between hard rock, melodic rock, and AOR in there...and some songs even have some elements of progressive rock and some bluesier elements mixed in also. And we have just one ballad on this album. Our goal when writing an album is that it should feel like playing songs on a jukebox and I think we have succeeded with that on this album. Everything sounds like PERFECT PLAN 3.0, really! I think we have definitely pushed everything up a notch from songwriting and lyrics to arrangements and overall performance and sound. With the addition of the great Tobias Lindell who does the mixing…everything sounds really big and majestic I think!" Sometimes the stars align and create a perfect balance of talent within a group. A band like Perfect Plan is the “perfect" (pun intended) example of that: a superb singer, a well-oiled band of experienced players, and a great songwriting talent with a knack for unforgettable melodies and driving rhythms. Add to that the right single released at the right time and Perfect Plan’s emergence as immediate rising stars on the melodic rock scene is no surprise. The song that “built” their reputation is of course the awesome “In and Out of Love,” the first single/video that kicked off the promotion of the band’s 2018 debut album “All Rise,” released on Frontiers in April of that year. The band followed their debut album with the sophomore release "Time For A Miracle" in 2020. Hyperbole aside, it was a major step forward across the board. Opting for a slightly heavier and more “in your face” sound, Perfect Plan matured and created an outstanding balance of melodies and energy, with the obvious references to the sound of the classics (think Foreigner, Survivor, The Storm, Giant, etc.) and Scandinavian AOR with a recognizable and personal feel. So, after a stunning debut and sticking the landing with their second album, what does Perfect Plan have up their sleeve for an encore? Well, all we can say is..."Brace For Impact”! Tracklisting: 1. Surrender 2. If Love Walks In 3. Can’t Let You Win 4. Gotta Slow Me Down 5. Stop The Bleed 6. My Angel 7. Devil’s Got The Blues 8. Bring Me A Doctor 9. Still Undefeated 10. Emelie 11. Walk Through Fire Line-Up: Kent Hilli - Lead vocals Rolf Nordström - Guitar Leif Ehlin - Keyboards Fredrik Forsberg - Drums Mats Byström - Bass   https://perfectplan.se facebook
