Top Ten Songs

Recommended Posts

I've stuck to the criteria, 10 songs only in the AOR/Hard Rock genre....

 

HONEYMOON SUITE - Still Lovin' You

TREAT - Best of Me

EUROPE - Superstitious

DARE - Nothing Is Stronger Than Love

BROTHER FIRETRIBE - Wildest Dreams

ATTRACTION 65 - In Another Life

TOTO - Only the Children

WINGER - Without the Night

CLIF MAGNESS - Footprints in the Rain

STANGEWAYS - Everytime You Cry

 

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...

 

Yes a very good Westcoast album....if that's your thang.

Might as well have a go at this. Surely the list can change from day to day, but I think a lot of these would stay in my top ten any day.

 

Def Leppard - Pour some Sugar on Me

Steelheart - Everybody Loves Eileen

Dare - We Don't Need a Reason

Tyketto - Wings

Slamer - Not in Love

Skid Row - I Remember You

Mötley Crüe - Wildside

The Storm - Fight for the Right

Wig Wam - In My Dreams

Danger Danger - Bang Bang

WINGER - Without the Night

:bowdown:

Good song, but I have to admit I was surprised to see it on Tim's list. I thought you weren't a fan of this band, mate? To me, good song as it is, I thought it was the weakest of the 3 main "power ballads" on Winger's first 3 discs. IMO:

 

1. 'Spell I'm under'

2. 'Miles away'

3. 'Without the night'

Big House - L.A.

 

I'd put that cd in my top 20 all time faves so anyone who can feature a Big House song in their top 25 is the shit! :drink:

While it's not my fav song or album I did like that one a lot back in the day and played the heck out of the cassette I had.

I do like WINGER. I liked "In the Heart..." and "Pull" (and the new one is pretty good too). I'd definitely rate "Without The Night" way above those others though, in fact I like "Who's The One" more than "Spell I'm Under" (from "Pull"). "Miles Away" is just a standard/cheesy 80's ballad that years & years of seeing on albums of SOFT ROCK BALLADS has dulled the impact of. "Without the Night" is their best ever song IMHO.

'Who's the one' is nice, gentle little tune, but you just made me vomit. ;)

Hey Without the Night was in my top 10 first!!! you guys need to direct your comments as to why I have it in my top 10 and not say like?? 91 Suite - Down To You? well that's a good question, and the answer would be, because that song wasnt playing in my head that day, so it is today, so I'll add it to my updated top 10 list!!

 

91 Suite - Down To You

Alien - Brave New Love

Fake I.D. - Heartbreak Moon

 

 

Updated: Thank You

I have clicked on this thread twice now in an attempt to do this and I cannot.

 

I get somewhere between MSG's Gimme Your Love and The Cult's Heart of Soul and realize this is impossible.

Wow this is nearly impossible for me

SIMPLE MAN - LYNYRD SKYNYRD

 

It is impossible for me and can't be done but if I did, this one would be a good chance to be included :tumbsup:

Some of you seem to be having trouble with this, which is perfectly understandable. I suppose one way to look at it would be like 'Desert Island Discs'. Maybe the question would be better phrased as, "If you could only have one CDR from all of your favourite AOR/hard rock songs (e.g. 20 tracks, for argument's sake) what would they be?"

It might take me forever to come up with a list. It's nearly impossible for me to pick 10 of my favorite bands. In many cases it is hard enough for me to pick a favorite song by an artist.

 

I do have a top song of all time and it has held that position for 30 years now:

 

The RUNAWAYS - "Waitin' For The Night"

 

I started another thread because it is easier for me to answer... :bananamac:

I'd have to this as a one-a-day selection. Too much stimuli otherwise. For today (or until I think of another):

 

White Sister: Straight From The Heart

    • Don't really honestly feel like checking this out. Up through against the law is great, but not really after that. Also, I can't stop laughing at "the holy bumblebees" 🤣 You sound like my sister when you say that 
    • Cry Tough- Poison
    • Wow... this one sounds really good. Especially that first song. I hear HEAT in that too.  Will listen to this ASAP.
    • Just wondering why you choose a couple songs from an album, and not all the good songs from an album. Also, I see you picking one album from a band that falls in that timeframe, and not all the albums. How comprehensive do you want this playlist?  Anyway, I see you have nothing from Transit, so you should add some from them. I know their albums are on the Spotifies. Also, I wasn't aware the Brunette demos were on there, so that's good to know. 
    • This is hilarious, and finally seeing one of these phony liberal pussys getting whats so coming to them. Blaming it on Trump supporters. LOL love it    
    • HA HA HA I FUCKING LOVE IT MAN!!  
    • These are a few more I just heard off my cassette tapes my step dad gave me, quit a bizarre mix of music, though all stands in the Pop/Hi-Tech/AOR/Rock field, but really is all over the road as far as being specific, I will remind you, these are all bands and songs I have never heard of, or heard ever before, so I'm sure there will be bands you have all heard, and I'm just a fucking idiot, and my musical knowledge is a 2 on a 10 scale, none of these are off my you tube channel, I haven't had the chance to record a lot of the tapes onto my computer yet, so I am going with the ones I could already find on You Tube, which there aren't many, the 1st one is off a soundtrack from a movie I think I saw in like 1st  grade called The Sluggers Wife, it was sang by Rebecca De Mornay, who was also in the movie(the hot bitch from Risky Business) it's an extremely plain and simple pop song, like most pop songs, but for whatever reason, I'm a fan of brainless pop songs, especially when sung by females, and from the 80's, so I'm just including it on the off chance any of you are fags like I am, and like cheesy pop songs, the rest are just bands I never heard of, and dug the shit I heard on these tapes, I'll try and get all the bands that weren't on YouTube uploaded and put on here, shit takes time.     Never even heard of this dude, but i didnt hear a bad song on the whole tape, i gotta look into this guy, I might be a huge fan.              
    • Oh WORD? Where the hell did this come from?! Great stuff!
