Oh yuck. I guess for what it is it's kinda cool in a play that funky music white boy kind of way, and because I like this dude as a singer. But jeez, Dezza - if I can call you that - can we please just concentrate on Babylon AD, please. ;)

I'm not a huge fan of this style, but I actually really like this CD.

There is some really catchy stuff on it, just need a few listens.

I would have rated my all time favorite song a 4 or 5 when I first heard it.

After a few more listens obviously it's a 10 for me.

Your absolute single favourite song of all time? Which one is that?

Probably not, but this guy is curious. I have to admit I misinterpreted the post and assumed your favourite song ever was from this new album, but I understand now, but am equally curious.

Dangerous Toys - Cure The Sane?

 

 

I do like that song, obviously.

I also like what it says. So many people trying to conform rather than being themselves.

 

But for whatever reason, my favorite song is Until You Suffer Some by Poison

Long story to do with the film clip and where i Was at that point in my life.

But also the hooks and melodies etc

 

Some others that are up there would be

Believe - Stryper

Love (I Don't Need It Anymore) - Union

Halfway To Heaven - Eurpoe

Take The Dog Off The Chain - Babylon AD

Turn It On - Danger Danger

Tales From The Boogieman - Jester

You Are The One - Hair Of The Dog

Wanna Be The One - Haywire

Hard To Be A Rock'N Roller - Wig Wam

Touch - Bad City

Face Down - Hot Action Cop

Love Song - Tesla

Love Is A Lie - Great White

So Easy - De Mont

Stronger Now - Warrant

 

I could go on, but I'll stop there and copy & paste that list to be the start of a new compilation disc.

Can't remember the last time I went and made one of my favorite songs...

Ha, why would you think I wouldn't like the Poison song? Poison were my favourite band of all for a massive portion of my life, and would definitely still be right up there. I have a massive place for them. And yeah, I preferred them with CC but I absolutely love that song. One of my absolute faves too.

 

A few oddballs on the other list, but some cool stuff. I guess the biggest curveball was 'Turn it on' by D2. Of all their songs, that's your favourite? Really? For me, that'd be in the bottom 5 songs, I think, from the Ted era of D2. It's a cool, simple and very basic song, but for me there was a tonne better in their discography. :)

Can't get the vids to work so I will have to reserve judgment but if the funk/soul vibe is akin to Circle of Soul (one of my all time favorite bands), count me in. Can't see it being so terrible that I would avoid purchasing it anyway as I am a huge Babylon A.D. fan.

 

Cool list of songs, Cure. Nice to see Haywire get some love and I mentioned in another thread that when put on the spot for an answer I counted Stronger Now as my favorite song of all time. And while I really like Turn it On, I'm with Geoff here. Just too many D2 songs I love that much more.

Illuminati confirmed!

 

haha, not really just giving you shit because more often than not we disagree on many songs.

 

I live S/T and Screw It!

Remember I come from less of an AOR perspective, so while Feels Like Love and One Step From Paradise etc are awesome songs, and I love listening to them, the songs that really hook me in are the ones with harder edges, and Turn It On is a party anthem.

For me it just tips out the others as a stand alone D2 song on a compilation..

Yeah, the videos aren't available on my mobile, and I'm guessing they're locked for us Canadians. I'll have to do some DNS majik on my compy.

You mean like the entire 'Screw It!' album? ;)

 

To be honest mate, I love their harder edge as much as / if not more than their AOR side too. Poison and Danger Danger are probably my favourite two US bands of all time so I adore everything they do (well, Poison before 'Crack a smile').

 

'Turn it on' is a cool song. Very pleasant and nice to the ears. Safe, but good. But when looking for favourite tunes, I couldn't put it in front of monsters like 'Beat the bullet,' 'Crazy Nights,' 'Don't blame it on love,' 'Rock America,' 'Feels Like Love' and the like. So many perfect songs to choose from.

 

And was it you who didn't like 'Cockroach?' But throw that into the mix, with the likes of 'Goin' goin' gone,' 'Afraid of love,' 'Don't break my heart again,' etc... So many super songs. :)

OK, I feel like a bit of a dipship.

I played my Cockroach CD and apparently I did get in to it and like it.

Must have listened to the Paul Laine version and maybe assumed that the songs were from post Cockroach.

Anyway, yes the songs you listed are good. There will always be songs you like better than me and vice versa.

 

I just dig Turn It On.

I know it's no Bohemian Rhapsody, but it's hooky and catchy and makes me wanna get up and party.

I actually prefer Screw It! to S/T

Don't really like Beat The Bullet, but I love Crazy Nights and Monkey Business

Off S/T I don't like Rock America, and Naughty Naughty is only OK, but I like Bang Bang and One Step From Paradise

 

Anyway, at least we can agree that Cockroach is a good album.

I think I gave it a listen and didn't like it at all, then I must have pushed through that and forced some more listen until I liked it :)

I think all of those first three albums are superb, and there's not really a (proper) song on them I dislike at all. Even 'Yeah you want it' I never skipped, lol.

 

I must admit I was baffled when I saw you say you didn't like 'Cockroach' as many considered that their finest hour. I think their finest hours are a blend of all three albums, personally. :)

    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar  
    • New song 'Fearless'.    
    • Feel The Steel - Steel Panther
    • In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth
    • Yeah sounding not too bad at all.
    • Yeah, I'll wanna hear the songs in full before I pass judgement, but this could be good. 
    • That's a good point I hadn't thought of. Of course the hospitals are going to treat whoever comes in because it's the right thing to do.  Hospitals don't turn away people that make stupid choices.  I guess what I was saying above was really that it's just hypocritical for somebody who is unvaccinated, gets COVID and then heads to the hospital for treatment.  You didn't trust science and medicine enough to take the vaccine but now you want medicine and science to save you?   Insurance is probably a whole different issue and yes, that's out of control in addition to the whole medical billing system.  Those are issues for another thread
    • Cool tunes, particularly the first 'One.' Nice. I'll check this out. 
    • I'll add it to tomorrow's playlist and allow the hilarity to infiltrate me. 
    • not worked up. I couldn't give a stuff about VH the band or EVH. Was never really a fan tbh outside of a handful of songs. But MM is a twat. Period.
