Your latest KILLER tune!

Recommended Posts

Another new thread from me ... it's a quiet day. :)

 

Lots of posts on here with first impressions, album reviews, etc. I just thought it would be good to have somewhere specific for killer tunes. (I did look to see if there was a similar old thread knocking around somewhere

 

‘New’ means new to you, rather than a new release. So if you’ve recently been listening to an album for the first time/few times, whether the album is years old or brand new, and there’s a song that really stands out as something special, post it here. Killer songs only though, e.g. something that would get in to your top 500 (or so) songs if you kept such a list.

 

There may be more than one, especially in the first post, but I’m hoping that eventually you’ll just post songs in here as you hear them and they rock your world. Here are mine for the last 2-3 months:

  • Crazy Lixx - Riot Avenue
  • Crazy Lixx - Church of Rock
  • Cruella D'Ville - Room Without a View
  • Testament - Last Stand For Independence

 

Anyone else?

This is kind of like a best songs of 2012 thread for me because most new music I do hear is actual new music. I think I am at a point with my collection where I have most, if not all the "older" released I wanted, in some format. Of course I'm sure there's some obscure gem out there I may not have ever heard of, but I reckon I have most of them. Just got to try to keep up with the new ones. Anyway, dished out a few 10's this year - more than last year for sure. These were all "perfect" songs for me this year so far:

 

Safetysuit - Never stop

Blessed By A Broken Heart - Forever

H.E.A.T - Living on the run

Wigelius - Talking About Love

Dallas - I Close My Eyes

Dallas - Open Your Heart

Hess - Reach For You

Star City Meltdown - Here's to Us

Star City Meltdown - Untied

USA!USA!USA - Michelle

USA!USA!USA - Karina

USA!USA!USA - Marissa

DoryDrive - Tattooed

DoryDrive - Fallin' For You

Athel - Radio

The Seeking - You Won't Bring Me Down

I'm in a drought and need some new stuff. Dusted off, "Pull" by Winger tonight after years of neglect and was reminded of why I picked it my favorite CD here. That whole CD rocks. "Blind Revolution Mad" cranked up while I type. :headbanger:

 

Just discovered State of Shock's 2011 CD, so "Have a Nice Day" would be my latest Killer Tune, but I need more to sample on Spotify. I'll check out what you and Geoff posted tomorrow. Thanks.

I'll post my 10/10 songs in 2012 later in the week when I get a chance to trawl back.

 

A couple I've not heard on Geoff's list but unsurprisingly they do all suspiciously look like ballads - even tho he contests that they aren't always his favourite songs

 

The big softie ;-)

Tsk tsk, how poorly you judge a book by it's cover. FYI:

 

Safetysuit - Never stop - ballad

Blessed By A Broken Heart - Forever

H.E.A.T - Living on the run

Wigelius - Talking About Love

Dallas - I Close My Eyes - ballad

Dallas - Open Your Heart

Hess - Reach For You - not really a ballad, but damn close

Star City Meltdown - Here's to Us

Star City Meltdown - Untied - ballad

USA!USA!USA - Michelle

USA!USA!USA - Karina - not a ballad, but a light tune for sure

USA!USA!USA - Marissa

DoryDrive - Tattooed

DoryDrive - Fallin' For You

Athel - Radio

The Seeking - You Won't Bring Me Down

 

That makes 5 out of 16 of my favourite songs of the years are ballads. Less than 1/3.

 

You'll find that on killer CDs, ballads are rarely my favourite songs. It happens more so on CDs that aren't amazing, that often the ballad is about the best of the bunch. Just had a quick look at my 9.5+ list and there don't seem to many ballads at all... ;)

That makes 5 out of 16 of my favourite songs of the years are ballads. Less than 1/3. And two of them aren't really ballads either.

I'm no ballad fan, but will check out the songs in your list. I'm more keen to know which ones are modern-sounding, as that's not my bag of chips at all. Will listen to the others in your list with baited ... erm ... ears though.

These are the only ones that aren't really "modern" I'd guess by your standards:

 

H.E.A.T - Living on the run

Wigelius - Talking About Love

Dallas - I Close My Eyes - ballad

Dallas - Open Your Heart

Hess - Reach For You

 

The USA!USA!USA! stuff isn't really "modern" either, but probably is to most. Who knows? All I need to know is they're all killer melodic rock songs. Not too concerned about the finer details. ;)

wowser mate, see youre lovin the Sapphire Eyes.

 

Didnt hit the mark for me............all pretty good, but equally forgettable.

 

:-(

 

Yeah mate like I said in another thread, it'll probably be this year's Shadows Fade for me.I remember in the year of it's release it didn't please a lot of people, but I loved the thing. There's just something about those moody mid-tempo tunes that really gets to me. And here we have an album with one ballad (the album's weakest song) and one uptempo rocker, and the rest is all that mid-tempo stuff I just lap up. Like I said, could be samey to some and I'd understand that, but if 8 porn stars wanted to give me a blow job I'm pretty sure I'd love each experience as much as the last. When something's real good, I can't fault a band for sticking to what works.

Blame James. I only adhere to the thread starter's commands. ;)

 

Have Debbie Ray released a disc this year, or is that just the single you're hooked on? I remember it being pretty awesome.

Yeah i'll give it a another listen or 2 for sure on Spotify before I cast on the pile, but i wasnt being blown away....as you say might have been the one pace of the album, but not much stuck. Also the vocals were a little accented.....mmm.

No pop at you mate.

 

Yeah the debbie rose was basically an EP, but I do love that song. Hoping they release a full length cd next year (with this song on it!) as I really liked the debut.

I don't usually mark tracks, but if I did a 9 would definitely qualify as a killer tune. I probably only find 10 - 15 new killer tunes in any given year, and only 1 or 2 of those would be a 10. I would have to reserve 10/10 for the likes of Whitesnake - Crying In The Rain (1987) White Sister - Can't Say No, Def Leppard - Billy's Got A Gun, House of Lords - Hearts of the World, Blackrain - Kill Em All.... OK, I could keep going for ages, but there are very few songs at that level, i.e. 100%-ers.

 

Having said all that, I probably listen to a lot less new music than you chaps - I probably get through 30 new releases a year, so I'm bound to have far fewer killer songs.

:lol:

 

Just found this funny as I like both of these albums, but those songs are among my least favourites. Amazing how we can both enjoy the albums, yet your favourite songs are my worst and probably vice versa. :tumbsup:

Agreed. For me, anything above an 8 is a pretty freakin' good song and a 9+ is often worth ejaculating over.

Desecresy - Vortex Unwinding :banger:

 

and

 

Eclipse - SOS (Wasn't sure about this one, but I think it sneaks in as a 'killer' tune.)

You must have been spent after listening BBABH or Sapphire Eyes. Christ could you even walk?

    • C'mon Doggy. We've been over this. Posts in this thread must be of a certain standard.
    • No he can push all he wants, he can bitch and fight and argue, and say the most insane liberal shit he can think of, but first this morning I had to fucking hear it from Karisa, then I get on here to escape her and Glens being a disrespectful motherfucker, we can talk shit, and insult each other, and clown and make fun, and be mean as we want, but when you start talking to me like im a fucking punk then my attitude will follow suit, Ive gone above and beyond to treat HH community with respect and I am about as laid back as your going to find me on here, but if we are gonna be mean, then just get it out in the open, cause I got zero problem with mean, but dont think for a second im not gonna be mean back, theres a huge line between trolling and talking to someone like their a bitch, trust me I know, I do both daily, this is the last im going to say about this, this is my position, so laugh it up, make your jokes, talk your shit, then drop it, fuckin liberals, lol
    • What is the new Covid variant and why is it a concern? Scientists have detected a new Covid-19 variant called B.1.1.529 and are working to understand its potential implications. About 100 confirmed cases have been identified in South Africa, Hong Kong, Israel and Botswana.   B.1.1.529 has a very unusual constellation of mutations, which are worrying because they could help it evade the body’s immune response and make it more transmissible, scientists have said. Any new variant that is able to evade vaccines or spread faster than the now-dominant Delta variant may pose a significant threat as the world emerges from the pandemic. Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical adviser to the UK Health Security Agency, said the R value, or effective reproduction number, of the B.1.1.529 variant in the South African province of Gauteng, where it was first found, was now 2 – a level of transmission not recorded since the beginning of the pandemic, before restrictions began to be imposed. For an R of anything above 1, an epidemic will grow exponentially.
    • Now kids... fight nice. This is the Flamefest section, so there's a bit more latitude here than in other areas. I think Glen is deliberately pushing your buttons, i.e., trolling you... especially since he "couldn't care less about U.S. politics"... *ahem*. He know he can push you into a rant. Don't fall for it. Ignore him like most of the rest of the people here do.
    • While I'm in the atheist camp I do not have a problem with most of the people who have faith in God....to each their own...as for Xmas , it is a holiday and should be about family and if religion is a necessary part of it for you, then so be it.....
