Song of the Day

Recommended Posts

Was listening to some classic Aussie stuff today. Here's a couple from 80's Rock/Pop chick Sharon O'Neill. I'm sure I've posted "Maxine" before, but it's worth posting again. Towards the late 80's she became a bit more Rockier. Sort of a Stevie Nicks solo vibe. I was s big fan of  her single "Physical favours".

The purists might disagree, but this is definitely my favourite Helloween album.

Rick Allen has got to be one of the biggest unsung heroes when it comes to will, motivation, determination and pure heart. Most people confronted with his circumstances would have curled up into a ball. I think i would've. It's a shame most people don't know his story. It's astonishing to think that not only did he overcome the mental Demons, but he also overcame his physical limitations to remain drumming in a world class heavy metal band no less!

Still I cannot understand why my beloved Ted never walked the extra mile to include it in one of his compilation cds... :crying:

 

Btw, be extremely careful since this cd was recently bootlegged from the usual Russian mafia (btw, that's the reason I remembered this song!)

It's from a 1979 movie soundtrack, it's instrumental and it  kicks ass!!!

Here's a couple from Robert Cray. Great Commercial friendly Blues from the 80's. Absolutely as smooth as silk.   

I know All Nights Reserved will appreciate the quality, even if no one else does.

A couple of great clips from the Gotthard "Made In Switzerland" concert. What an absolute tragedy it was to lose Steve Lee. I wonder how many people knew of his drumming prowess ?

Melodic Metal at it's best. There aren't too many bands out there as consistent as Primal Fear.

A great, very smooth AOR track from Aussie legend Ian Moss.

Been listening to "Bloodbound" since the new release. This is one of their older ones. I do love that riffage.

Dino Jelusic of "Animal Drive". A recent-ish tribute to Ray Gillen. The original  "Badlands" version is a killer and Dino certainly does it justice. I'm expecting big things from this kid in the future with "Animal Drive" and beyond.

Classic Aussie AOR. One of my earliest music memories.

I heard this one awhile ago. It's from the movie "Hell or high water", but i've just noticed it's on the new "Deadwood" movie trailer. I do like me some Dark Country. When I first heard this one his pronunciation on certain words like spoon and moon made me think he was an Aussie. Great track.

The "Charlotte" album popped up in the "New Comments" section on the main site. It reminded me of how much I love this track.

I'm pretty sure they will never understand how they accommodate a place in my heart, but, hey, I'm just another name on the list....

    • Been giving this a little thought....Think my top 5 is pretty strong but the next 5 are all just pretty average releases that probably wouldn't even make my top 10 in some other years. Not sure on the order of my top 3 yet but will be Crazy Lixx, Defiants and Pretty Maids in some order.  Then likely Eclipse and Degreed rounding out the top 5. Next 5 in some order are probably Station, Nitrate, Roxy Blue, Tesla and Saints of Sin.  I still might try to go back and check out some stuff I've missed from this year though so this "next 5" could easily change. 
    • Good stuff! Order CD here (just C$5.00 + postage): https://www.rockwithplayhouse.com/product-page/playhouse-the-rock-n-roll-circus        
    • Hard Rock band from México! Band members.- Lead vocals: Andres Espada Lead Guitar: Jose Mesta Rhythm Gtr: Firio Verastegui Bass: Daniel Mesta Drums: Sergio Mtz facebook      
    • From Frontiers: Waiting For Monday is a new melodic rock band formed by vocalist Rudy Cardenas and guitarist/singer August Zadra. The band hails from Los Angeles and was brought to the attention of Frontiers by Jeff Scott Soto, with the label moving quickly to sign them based on their outstanding talents. Musically, you can expect classic chart topping melodies ala Journey, Styx, and Foreigner, but with a decidedly modern approach. And if you are looking for sunny, meaningless lyrics, then you probably best look elsewhere as the band has stories to tell, and not all of them happy. Originally from Venezuela, Rudy Cardenas is an incredibile vocal talent. His pipes carriedd him to the finals on Season 6 of American Idol and he has been heard on TV and movies ranging from Family Guy to Real Steel. For five years, Rudy was the power alto for the multi-award winning vocal group, M-pact, who was named Vocal Group of the Year at the 2005 L.A. Music Awards. More recently, Rudy was the featured vocalist for the Gold-selling Hungarian rock album by Mr. Zsolt. August Zadra is best known for handling lead guitar and vocal duties in iconic singer Dennis DeYoung's solo band since 2010. Since the age of 15, guitar playing has been a passion that carried August from Fairbanks, Alaska to Hollywood, California, where he attended and graduated from the Guitar Institute of Technology. He has been a regular feature in the Los Angeles music scene for the past 20 years, playing with a variety of bands, and is often sought out as a guitarist/vocalist collaborator for writing and recording projects. Completing the lineup are Joe Travers (drums), Walter Ino (guitar and keyboards), and Eric Baines (bass). Their exciting debut record is now ready to be shared with the world.  Tracklist: 1. Until The Dawn 2. End Of A Dream 3. Shattered Lives 4. Found You Now 5. Right In Front Of You 6. Must Have Been 7. Pick Your Lies 8. Inside Your Head 9. Make It Better 10. Love You Forever 11. One More Round   facebook      
    • New video for 'Promised Land'.    
    • I don't think I have ever heard of Sleeper before. Will check them out. The Cranberries?.. Hmmm no, I don't agree. Pale Waves has that synthwave feel, and a bit of pop rock sound to their songs as opposed to The Cranberries which sound like a mixture of alternative and folk rock imo.
    • Remind a bit of the band Sleeper from years ago and a bit of Cranberries thrown in.not my cuppa tea but I can see where some may like this.
    • Argh! On one hand I love that the forum brings stuff like this to my ears, but on the other hand I hate knowing stuff like this is out there and I'd not ever know about it, if not for this chance thread.  Absolutely love what I'm hearing there. I'm going to check this one out with intense immediacy. 
    • my top 10 will be pretty strong....after that the quality drops off a cliff. Mind you I suppose in 2019 we should be glad of 10 great melodic rock releases. It could be worse....it could be the mid to late 90s  
    • Was looking back and actually forgotten quite a few that were released this year. It’s hard to think of a single album that I keep going back to time and time again.
