I've done a few searches for a 'top ten songs' thread, but can't find one anywhere. If there is one, please could someone point me in the right direction and the mods delete this one?

 

Anyway, if not.....

With so many people on here having huge music collections, I would be very interested to hear what others' all time top ten AOR and Hard Rock songs are. Maybe not an easy task for some, and obviously the list changes from time to time, but it would be good to share lists nonetheless.

 

Any takers?

Ha, yeah it really is! I don't think much of the rest of that album but for some reason I've never been able to get that song out of my head. There are other Journey songs I love of course.

This is just impossible and would change day to day but I'll give it a go and have to include some Metal favs as well.

 

1. Black Sabbath-Heaven&Hell

2. Kiss-I Still Love You

3. Kiss-Love Gun

4. Armored Saint-Reign of Fire

5. Guns N Roses-It's So Easy

6. Skid Row-Monkey Business

7. Ace Frehley-Rock Soldiers

8. Iron Maiden-Children of the Damned

9. Def Leppard-Comin' Under Fire

10. Dio-Don't Talk to Strangers

11. AC/DC-Flick of the Switch

12. Y&T-Winds of Change

13. Black N Blue-Heat it Up, Burn it Out

14. Cold Sweat-Four on the Floor

15. Bangloir Choir-Angel in Black

16. Danger Danger-Beat the Bullet

17. Keel-Tears of Fire

18. Riot-Outlaw

19. Rainbow-Gates of Babylon

20. House of Lords-Metallic Blue

21. Wildside-Hang of Lucy

22. Tyketto-Forever Young

23. Sweet F.A.-Prince of the City

24. Spread Eagle-Switchblade Serenade

25. Shotgun Messiah-Sex, Drugs, Rock N Roll

 

I know I went over 10 but it was hard to stop at 25 and probably could of just kept going up to 10,000 and still wouldnt' of been happy.

I quote "Top Ten Songs, Hard Rock & AOR faves".

 

If I were including modern acts, I would select every single song from Cauterize's 2 and 1/2 CDs, as well as a huge bunch of SR-71 songs... for starters. Not to mention Faber Drive. But this isn't the thread for it.

It doesnt mater mate, the way I see it is this, Stereoside, and Cauterize entire influence is our music, they just try to integrate it into there own style, but they are every bit as hard rock as your going to get, so yes, ,list all the songs by Cauterize! not Sr-69 or whoever you are talking about, Cauterize are not even in those bands league, so dont insult Cauterize like that!

I like Cauterize, but not one of their songs would make my top 20 modern songs let alone MHR......i also have a feeling (without thinking too hard about it) that my top 50 songs of all time would not include one modern song.

 

Modern rock is good....but not that good ;-))

Don't like the 'modern' stuff at all personally, but I do love the track, 'Hey Joe' by Stereoside. Fantastic.

Lots of stuff I don't know in these lists. Although our tastes differ a lot, if songs have made into people's top 10-30 of all time, they must be worth checking out. Unless someone has a Steelhouse Lane fixation, of course... ;)

Never heard of this fella before, so I just checked out a few samples. Not my usual taste, very soft, but I'm loving 'It's Only Love' and 'Footprints In The Rain', great songs. 'Jenny's Still In Love' isn't bad either. Another one for the list...

    • Press release: UK rock band, CATS IN SPACE, have announced the release of their fourth album ‘Atlantis‘ on November 27th via Harmony Factory / Cargo Records UK. The first single ‘I Fell Out of Love with Rock n’ Roll‘ will be released on October 30th. CATS IN SPACE return with their fourth studio album this Winter with the sensational ‘ATLANTIS’. Nine months in the making, it is set to cause tidal waves around the globe with a sound still ‘very Cats’ but this time the ‘Rock claws’ are out. In a year which has seen much upheaval in the world, the band have also undergone some changes whilst buried deep beneath the ocean recording their new masterpiece. Joining the Cats onboard is none other than the star of Jeff Wayne’s ‘War of the Worlds’, the amazing DAMIEN EDWARDS, whose incredible vocal range has brought another dimension to the unique sounds of the band. After three hugely acclaimed and successful albums, this new line-up will certainly get the fans buzzing in anticipation of the new ‘Aquatic monster’. “Atlantis has been a testing journey for the band in many ways, taking into account some personal events and indeed the state of the business due to Covid-19. But, let us reassure you all, we believe that the new record is going to blow you away. It rocks more and has more symphony, courtesy of our good friend Mike Moran and his orchestra! We are super excited for everyone to hear what we believe is our finest album yet” – Greg Hart. Tracklist: 1. Dive! 2. Spaceship Superstar 3. Revolution 4. Sunday Best 5. Listen To The Radio 6. I Fell Out Of Love With Rock ‘n Roll 7. Marionettes 8. Queen Of The Neverland 9. Magic Lovin’ Feelin’ 10. Can’t Wait For Tomorrow 11. Seasons Change 12. Atlantis  
    • Mayhem With Mercy - Venom
    • Cold Truth - Grindstone  Molly Hatchet - Silent Reign Of Heroes  The Sonic Walthers - Medication
    • New song 'Castaway'. Nice!    
    • So I just heard this song, you all probably know of it, or not, I fucking really really like this song, I think it fucking rocks, but rocks in like a crossover Punk-Goth-Raw Hard Rock throwback to the Black Flag - Loose Nut type days, this song is completely raw, unpolished, and just dirty,    
    • I know a few years ago I posted the very first BA song off his very first album, pretty much sarcastically, as it made me want to throw on some daisy dukes, roller skates and bop up and down my street chewing bubble gum and dancing, well I was wrong, it wasn't his first song, this one is, and guess what? it's a million times better then his old first song, I even got the disco remix, this is pure hilarity, I couldn't stop laughing after hearing this, and like his other first song, this has a mind tormentingly catchy beat to it, caution it will lure you in and get you, also, some company out of Canada BA deals with hunts uploads of this song down with intensity, anyone that gets uploaded to YouTube generally is caught by it's bots on the UL, if not that company snags it within a couple days, so I had to upload an artist who has a similar name and his song that also has a similar name, lets see how long we can keep this up there, and why the fuck does that company care if it's out there? that's almost Nancy Drew script material, very fucking odd, anyway, when your done laughing,, lets hear your thoughts.  
    • err just to make this absolutely clear - this is not coming from me.  And that is not a panic stricken website it is the official UK government website with comments directly from our health secretary ffs you do what u like. at 30 odd years old yes your risk is prob negligible. At nearly 51 I would be far greater risk category even being fit for my age. And as for my parents they would prob die sadly. both have had their yearly flu jab so that risk in minor in comparison - for covid there is no treatment or vaccine. Comparing the two is quite frankly bollocks. so I continue to be careful and prudent  but I am not living my life in fear thank you very much and I am not doom mongering
