Which songs do you think are awesome, but largely unknown and overlooked?




I'll start with Take The Dog Off The Chain - Babylon AD.




Easily their best song for me.

I love it, too, but I think "Bad Blood" is my favourite.

This could turn out to be a large list, as it'll be very subjective.

 

But I will add a suggestion. Hardline's Double Eclipse is often considered one of the greatest albums of our beloved genre, but I doubt many would consider this their favourite track off it.

I hope it can become a perpetual list.
There are tonnes of amazing songs around that many of us may never have heard of before.

 

I remember years ago Melodic Rock posted Harem Scarem - Hard To Love Acoustic Version which got me in to a band I'd not bothered with.

Yeah, where do you even start with a thread like this? I guess I'll list a couple of the best songs I've heard in the last two days?

 

'Really hits home' - Lixx Array (no video on Youtube)

 

'Can't stop the rain' - Lion

We never said goodbye by Syre is pretty awesome and hardly known

 

'In your eyes' off that album is my favourite, which, amazingly, appears to have actually been a single back in the day. Never seen this video before. Very cool...

Speaking of random soundtrack songs (from the 'Armageddon' soundtrack), at the time of it's release this was the best Journey song I had heard to that date. Still might be...

 

Remember Me;

 

 

Arguably Mr Big's best song ever is also just an unknown bonus track on their 'Greatest Hits' album.

 

Stay Together;

My favorite TS song.

Released on a greatest hits after being on the Strangeland soundtrack

Cool tune, by the way. Better than most TS stuff...

Also a recent one is Wayland - Get A Little

 

Thought it was a bit corny when I first heard it (kind of like the Wig Wam above) but after a few listens it imbedded itself in my brain and I was a bit addicted...

I said "Go baby, you make me feel ah, ah, ah, ah yeah
Oh, baby, you make me feel ah, ah, ah, ah yeah"

:whistle:
How about Bad City - Touch
Massively underrated album.
Their first and last after the singer was apparently charged with sexual assault and kicked out of the band.
This song has it all for me, hooks, great bridges, brilliant production, builds to a great crescendo at the end.
One of 5 or 6 killer songs that I'd rank 9 to 10/10

Yeah, two counts of sexual assault. What an asshole. But his voice was great, and the album may be considered a modern classic in a few years.

My favourite track was "Don't Stop."

Oh, baby, you make me feel ah, ah, ah, ah yeah"

 

:whistle:

 

Yeah I know it kind of cheesy :quagmire: but I felt as a kid it was a song overlooked while everybody else talked about their hits like Christine Sixteen and Doctor Love, I loved that song

 

but on topic:

 

Badlands - Soul Stealer (1991) - I always thought this song was kick ass

Just recently I heard "All Canadian Man" by Miss Crazy.

Kinda weird heard the lyrics changed like that but not a bad song.

Would have preferred that they covered it and changed it more, otherwise what's the point?

Probably one of those songs that do well in concert but not so well on an album.

 

Not sure how well received the album "Paul Gilbert & Freddie Nelson - United States" was here, but I love this CD

Wasted Time is one of the best songs. Also Paris Hilton Look Alike and I'm Not Addicted are great tracks

    • Edvard Munch's favourite band.
    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12. Quella Sera (Bonus Track)   Night Pleasure Hotel is:   Alex Mari: Lead Vocals, Backing Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards Sebastiano Barbirato: Guitar, Bass, Backing vocals Gianluca Pisana: Drums, Piano, Backing Vocals
    • Queen Shrike = Queensryche 👍
    • and the new Gunship cd maybe not so much AOR but damn good stuff
    • I've enjoyed pretty much all of their output thus far..inc this  
    • First I've heard of these guys.  A bit of a Danny Wilde vibe on vocals for me.  I like it.
    • New song 'Give The Night Away'.    
    • I can't remember the ins and outs of it, but last year he put up a tweet about how anyone who does cover songs is unoriginal and have no talent, and he would rather listen to the original. I have no issue with the second part of his statement as that is all down to personal taste, but for him to call out bands as unoriginal and lacking talent when bands he listens to have done covers is quite laughable. Every time he posts shit like that I reply and he always ignores me as he knows he is chatting shit. He does it with wrestling as well. Called someone out for instulting a woman wrestler, and saying it's unacceptable to insult wrestlers like that. Pointed out he always calls Brock Lesnar a gorilla and he he should practice what he preaches .. ignored again As I say, always has to pretend he knows everything, but always gets caught out.
