Love your list Glen, great songs

 

Here is list of some of my fav tunes

 

Queensryche - I Don't Believe In Love

Whitesnake - Here I Go Again

Brother Firetribe - Wildest Dreams

Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt.1

Dangerous Toys - Scared

Sleeze Beez - Stranger Than Paradise

Allen / Lande - Come Alive

Winter Rose - Never Fall In Love Again

Crashdiet - Chemical

Savatage - Believe

Lizzy Borden - Master Of Disguise

Paradise Lost - Say Just Words

 

non HH stuff

 

Alabama - I'm In A Hurry

Marc Cohn - Walking In Memphis

 

 

Me it's all in the over the top chorus, powerful riff, easy to sing along to (except maybe the DT stuff), good guitar solo, solid vocals and solid production. Lyrics normally don't play a big role in me liking something, although I loved Sentenced musically, but their suicidal lyrics drove me nuts.

Actually there is one single song that encompasses my musical taste perfectly:

 

The RUNAWAYS - "Waitin' For The Night"

 

As I have said in other post.. the single most important song as to why I listen to the music I do. If I had never heard this song it is hard to tell which musical path I may have followed.

 

But... since you asked for 10:

 

1.) The RUNAWAYS - "Waitin' For The Night"

2.) TRIUMPH - "Magic Power"

3.) Y&T - "Black Tiger"

4.) LILLIAN AXE - "Dream Of A Lifetime"

5.) DIO - "Rainbow In The Dark"

6.) SAVATAGE - "Edge Of Thorns"

7.) JOAN JETT and the BLACKHEARTS - "I Love Rock N' Roll"

8.) REO SPEEDWAGON - "Golden Country"

9.) SR-71 - "Axl Rose"

10.) CINDERELLA - "Night Songs"

 

I tend to like loud clean guitars and catchy songs. Songs that are preformed with emotion.

Whitesnake - Here I Go Again

Harem Scarem - Stranger Than Love

Alias - After All the Love is Gone

Bad English - Straight to Your Heart

Def Leppard - Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad

Warrant - Heaven

Lou Gramm - Just Between You And Me

Diving For Pearls - New Moon

The Distance - On the Tail of a Hurricane

Dare - Abandon

 

For me it was really hard to pick just 10 songs. But like others I go for catchy songs with huge choruses.

No way I can do it as my musical taste is far too wide reaching, being that I listen to pretty much every type of music in some form or another.

 

That goes for me too. I'm too eclectic to do such list. :)

No, I don't have a favourite style... 'Good Music' maybe?

Like others have said, I could probably list a 100, but I'll try to go with just 10:

 

Dokken - Haunted

Y&T - City

Twisted Sister - Wake Up the Sleeping Giant

Ozzy - No More Tears

Brother Firetribe - Kill City Kid

White Lion - Livin' on the Edge

Motley Crue - Wild Side

Europe - Superstitious

Van Halen - When It's Love

Cinderella - Gypsy Road

 

:banger:

 

 

 

*If I were going to include a song outside of my normal hard rock listening, I'd go with Ordinary World by Duran Duran; awesome tune!

Yeah I love that Duran Duran song too :-)

 

V interesting this thread, just to find out what people really love.........just a quick side note, this is not really your top 10 songs but 10 songs of your favourite style. Hell I listen to metal, hard rock, AOR, sleaze, pomp, classical, pop/rock.......but my top 10 is the style I would choose over all others. If That makes any sense.

 

Cheers

My tastes are split between death metal, thrash and hard rock, with a little bit of Manchester-style indie thrown in, so I suppose my ten should reflect that. Off the top of my head:

 

Bolt Thrower - This Time It's War

Death - Crystal Mountain

Depressed Mode - So Long

Testament - Trial By Fire

Overkill - Elimination

Whitesnake - Crying In The Rain (1987)

White Sister - Can't Say No

Danger Danger - Under The Gun

Puressence - Free Fall

Cranberries - Zombie

Whoops, I misunderstood you Glen. I thought you were looking for songs that describe musical taste and since I have varied tastes in music I posted a varied list that summed it up. My favorite style would be melodic hard rock with a little glam thrown in there. My new list would be:

 

Vain - Beat The Bullet

Wild Boyz - Roll The Dice

Slaughter - Desperately

Roxxi - Drive It To Ya Hard!

Danger Danger - When She's Good She's Good

Shout - Bad Girls

Fastway - Bad Bad Girls (I like bad girls :quagmire: )

Firehouse - Sleeping With You

White Lion - Little Fighter

Hardline - Hot Cherie

8.) REO SPEEDWAGON - "Golden Country"

 

not many people would rate that amongst their fave REO songs but I love it. Esp the live version on 'You Get What You Play For' !!
