AOR Song of the Day


Recommended Posts

  • 2021 Gold Donors

I reckon AOR needs a genre specific thread of it's own.

Again, another umbrella term, but still very distinct. 

This album was a completely random pick up for me and responsible for a great memory

Back in the day I picked this up in a bargain bin that contained multiple copies for $5 each (JB, Doggy). I was with my cousin and a mate who were both into this music also. We all decided it was worth the risk at that price, so we all got a copy. It was one of the rare times we ALL came back from buyings CDs happy.

I shocked that he has done 5 more albums along this one, the last was 2003

He's been around for a while. A lot of writing credits as well.

I'm glad he decided to do this one himself. It smashes the "Chicago" version.

Lou Gramm - I'll Know When It's Over.

Two killer solo albums. I really could listen to this guy all day.

Heard this one at a Firefest after party years ago - Stuck with me ever since. Great tune.

Jimmy Barnes - Waitin' For the Heartache.

One from '87 off Jimmy's best album. Produced by Jonathan Cain, Mike Stone and Desmond Child. Very polished as you'd expect.

This album was his big crack at the US market, featuring heaps of guests including Neal Schon amongst many others.

Great album and big down here, but I don't think he achieved the success in the US he was hoping for.

Jude Cole - Start the Car.

This had moderate commercial success down here in '92 and It's always stuck with me.

I haven't heard anything he's done before or since TBH.

Absolute KILLER!!! album with no filler at all with the superb vocals of Gene Miller. "Tears Don't Put Out The Fire" and "Go Easy" are so much better here than on the debut Alien album IMHO. The only fault i have is the production which is lacking, one of MTM's finest releases.

Bought the Dangerous Music album back in 85 after hearing the Heartline single and man what a disappointment, 1 killer track and the rest was crap.

And on the subject of albums with 1 killer track hear's another. Double Dealer -  Moving Target an album of 11 tracks of which the first 10 are pure shit and then we get track 11 Freedom which is an absolute gem of a song, AWESOME!!!

I haven’t actually checked out that album.. but perhaps I won’t be in a rush now. Shame to hear.

Daryl braithwaite is one of Australia's favourite sons. 

Frontman for the iconic 70s Aussie band "Sherbet".

In 1988 he released his first solo album which included this and several other massive hits down here.

Glad it wasn't horrible cover he does, " Horses ".

Almost every second to third song on radio ( remember them ) is it.

Trivia his ex wife was also Mike Tramp's ex.

Really? That's a spin out. I'll have to see if I can find a Google image.

Jean Beauvoir - Feel the Heat.

My cousin and I were big Stallone fans back in the day, so we loved this track. 

I already had this on the "Cobra" soundtrack and I already had the "Voodoo X" album when I came across his first two solo albums in a second hand store and thought I'd hit the jackpot. 

Unfortunately, they were two of my biggest musical disappointments.

He's redeemed himself of course with "Crown of Thorns".

Yeah, Mike Tramp's ex is named Fleur Thiemeyer, an Aussie, and they have a son named Dylan, but she's not Daryl Braithwaite's ex.

I don't know where you got that from mate.
