Another nod to our Canadian friends. This track was apparently released all the way back in '86 in Canada. It was then re-released in 1990. That's when I first heard it. 

For some reason all my other mates hated it. I think it was the fact that it was from a non-Metal/Hard Rock band. I've never been a fan of these guys at all and I couldn't name another one of their tracks, but I've always loved this one and still do.

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 futur

XYZ - Lonely Without You.

 

Heard this original demo again today in my rotation. I've posted it before, so I thought i'd bump my original post. I still can't for the life of me, understand how the original arrangement didn't make it on either one of their first two albums. Fuck, I love this song.

I'm very late to the party with this XYZ demos disc. I didn't even know it existed. What an absolute cracker of a track this is.The version on Rainy Days is great, IMO this original version is far superior and more "XYZish".

Guns n' Roses - Don't Cry (Alternate Lyrics).

When the "Illusion" albums came out, I could only afford one. "Illusion II" was the better album and "You Could Be Mine" plus "Civil War" sealed the deal. That meant that I was/am far more familiar with and prefer the alternate version of "Don't Cry". 

The lines

"And when you're in need of someone, my heart won't deny you

So many seem so lonely with no one left to cry to, baby"

get me everytime I hear it.

Aztec Camera - Somewhere in My Heart.

A Rock/Pop song from 1987 that I've always loved.

Back when every Rock/Pop band included a Saxaphone.

There aren't too many Rock Chicks, if any, hotter than Debbie Harry in her prime.

I was late to the party when it came to "Armored Saint". This was the first track I heard, but what a track.

I was also lucky enough to hear it for the first time back in the day whilst watching this awesome video.

The twin guitar solo attack is a killer.

Here's three from "Adam and the Ants". There was nothing bigger than this when I was about ten.

I miss that show. The re-runs are good value, but i've seen them a million times.

AC/DC - Night Prowler.

 

Happy Halloween....... I guess.

We've definitely embraced it here (commercially, at least), but it's popularity is nothing compared to the US of course. 

You don't hear this one very often, but this would come close to being my favourite AC/DC track. It's certainly up there.

The last track on Bon Scott's last album.

Three members on the cover are still current and the only reason the other two aren't is because they're dead!

Vinnie Vincent Invasion - That Time of Year.

This one popped up in my rotation today. Any time you hear this track, it's automatically "Song of the Day".

As close to perfection as it gets.

Velocity - More Than Tonight.

Another album that I could've thrown a dart at to pick song of the day.

Machinations - No Say In It.

A classic Aussie track from 1985. This one always takes me back there.

I'd be interested to know if our overseas friends have heard it.

Here's three from "The Fabulous Thunderbirds". Probably not everyone's cup of tea, but I love these guys.

The guitarist is Jimmie Vaughan, Stevie Ray's brother. I love the solo on "Wrap It Up". Ridiculously short and simple, but perfect.

Any fans of "Married With Children" (possibly my favourite TV show of all time) should recognize the second track.

An AC/DC "Mork & Mindy" Tribute on the "Highway to Hell" album??

I've been waiting to see if anyone noticed the massive "Morky & Mindy" reference at the very end.

It's very strange, but Bon says "Shazbot" and "Nanu Nanu" very clearly.

Seriously.

Here's two from the "Roxy Blue" debut. I love this album and it really hit the spot for me when it was released in '92.

Little did I know that the end was near for "our music".

Here's a couple from "The Romantics".

"What I Like About You" is great and their biggest hit, but i've always loved and prefered "Talking In Your Sleep". Killer track.

Flame  - Don't Look Down.

I remember picking this album up in a bargain bin not long after it was released. I new nothing of the band and the cover art was a bit dodgy, but it was only $2, so I thought why not? I couldn't believe how good the album was and when I got to this track I was in heaven.

    • From what I understand, Pete and Steve are extremely pissed at Mark "Gus" Scott. https://www.madrock1025.com/trixter-members-go-public-with-feud/ In an argument that’s gone uncomfortably public, Trixter drummer Mark “Gus” Scott has fired back at his disgruntled bandmates, claiming he only wants what’s best for the group. The feud began when Steve Brown and P.J. Farley told interviewers Scott was on “the sh*t list beyond belief,” comparing him to disobedient dog. Now, in a new interview, Scott says the band’s problems go well beyond just one dissenting member. “I don’t know if the ‘bad dog’ is the best analogy and the best manner in which to visualize what’s happened with Trixter,” he says. “I think there’s been different ideologies within the band for a very, very long time. We’ve been together over 30 years. So I think there’s always been — I don’t wanna say a ‘rift,’ but more recently, if there was a rift, it was certainly becoming more and more exponentially grown.” While not naming names, Scott says his issues are with the band’s “leadership,” adding he refuses to be “led by ignorance.” Ouch. How long will it be before Trixter either calls it quits or parts ways with Scott? Have the members of Trixter been together too long?
    • What's the story there? I recall a couple videos between the two "new" albums that portrayed them all as good buddies. 
    • A magnificent hidden gem from Ted Poley.    
    • Ok, so they did shoot a video for "Breakdown." I fucking love this song!!  
    • New hard rock from Maryland:  
    • Here's a few from artists not included on your list yet. I think they all qualify, we'll see. I've saved the best for last. A Legendary Aussie artist covering a Legendary Aussie band. The song is about the Vietnam War. Very profound.
