Ten? You bastard! I can't pick just ten. If I attempt this, it'll probably take me a month or two.

Impossible - any of those tunes could interchange on any given day and on top of that there are at least another 10 which could be thrown in to the melting pot.

 

Killer band with killer tunes.

Agree that they were a great band (I lost most of my interest after 'Psychotic Supper') but for me, three of their songs sit above the rest, i.e. 'Paradise', 'Freedom Slaves' and 'Flight To Nowhere'. If I was told they were the only Tesla tracks I could listen to from now on, I could just about live with that.

Apart from the awesome solo, Freedom Slaves is pretty average rocker for me

The lyrics, man. Tesla are one of, if not the only band alongside Warrant ('Dog eat dog') and Vain ('Move on it'), who came out of the 80's hard rock scene with lyrics strong enough to make a song stand out. Lyrically, I absolutely love every line of 'Freedom slaves.'

 

Anyway, I can't do 10 but I got damn close:

 

1. Modern day cowboy

2. Hang tough

3. Flight to nowhere

4. Makin' magic

5. Love song

6. Edison's medicine

7. Song and emotion

8. Freedom Slaves

9. Had enough

10. Need your lovin'

11. Rubberband

12. Wonderful world

13. Into the now

You don't rate Changes either??'! Creep ;-) that's easily my fav Tesla song

 

Or 'Paradise', which is easily my favourite. Amazing melodic rock song with incredible guitar. You're right, what is this Aussie fella on?

 

:D

Take it easy, friends. I like/love every single song on every single Tesla CD of original tunes. 'Changes' is a monster track... just not one of my 13 faves. Maybe my 14th favourite? ;):lol: Seriously, love this band and basically all their songs.

Heaven&Hell said it best: truly one of our genre's most talented acts.

 

Nearly impossible for me. My best of compilation is 2 cdrs (160 minutes) and it doesn't even include Forever More. And glancing back over everyone else's lists I see i've omitted a boatload of great tunes from mine.

 

Here's my attempt at 18 in no particular order:

 

Cummin' Atcha Live

Modern Day Cowboy

Gettin' Better

Love Song

Had Enough

Last Action Hero

Steppin' Over

Party's Over

Edison's Medicine

Freedom Slaves

EZ Come EZ Go (the song that turned them on to me. Was actually looking for the Winger version but picked up Mechanical figuring it was these guys who did it).

Can't Stop

Rock Me to the Top

Paradise

Mama's Fool

Come to Me

Got No Glory

What You Give

 

No love for Last Action Hero? Man, I love that one! These guys need to release a new disc asap!

Good call on 'Last action hero' - I admit I did not think of that one but it'd definitely be on a list.
