'Slipped her the big one', 'I still think about you', 'Crazy nights'... no, surely it must be 'Beat the bullet'... But no!!! Just beaten slightly by my fave of the album: 'Don't blame it on love'. Definately a hard choice here though...

"Don't Blame It On Love" just edges "Crazy Nights" & "I Still Think...". Another great album, but spoilt by those annoying interludes & a couple of fillers...

Great music, but the lyrics are way too juvenile on Screw It!, even the album title was bad. Slipped Her The Big One, Get Your Shit Together, Everybody Wants Some (Your Mom and Dad do it, LAME!!!) Horny S.O.B., Yeah You want It. Were they trying to attract a younger immature pre-teen audience. Too bad because Don't Blame It on Love, Crazy Nights, Beat The Bullet and the ballads deserved better supporting tracks. Too much filler for such a great band.

I went with don't blame it on love too.

This is a real great song, and then Everybody wants some and Crazy nites.

What a shame they chosen Monkey business as first single, when Skid row had a single with the same title, It looks like DD have no fantasy at all.

The second single I still think about you was to melodic for me.

In my opinion there were much better songs in this fantastic cd ,the best they evere made, the lyrics are so funny. :band:

My favorite songs off of this one are:

Beat The Bullet, Crazy Nights, Monkey Business, and I Still Think About You!

In the end, I have to go with "Beat The Bullet"!

Very tough decision though!

An album full of sexual innuendos, you'll think that the only thing that Bruno Ravel and Steve West had in mind when they wrote this album was SEX. It is that SHAMELESS. And the song topics, WOW, they're really that original! With titles like "Find Your Way Back Home", "Comin' Home" (guess how many going home songs were written in the 80s), "Crazy Nites"(do I have to explain?) and "I Still Think About You", they really stuck to the time-tested topics in songwriting for the average hair bands.

 

Thank goodness for Andy Timmons.

 

I like Beat the Bullet.

Figured I post my question on this old thread instead of starting a new one. Has anybody heard the Japanese bonus track for "Screw It" called "Just What The Doctor Ordered"? I'm wondering how good of a track it is and if the Jap import is worth tracking down for just one song. I figure somebody on the boards must have it. Or maybe somebody can send me an mp3 of it. That would be even better :guitbannana:

Hi mate. I do have it somewhere and I will do my best this afternoon to track it down to send you. In short, no it's not worth buying the Jap version for. Yes, it is a good song but not one of their best. Well worth having, though. If someone doesn't beat me to it I'll track it down for you. :)

 

If I recall correctly it sounds more like a debut b-side than 'Screw It' b-side... I think.

Very cool. I'd love to hear it. I was hoping I wouldn't have to buy the whole cd for just one more song.

    • How did I not think of this one?! Brilliant album and the project just tanked afterwards...
    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.

Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM  
    • warrant?? CP and DED destroy the debut imo. 🤷
    • Eric Clapton-Chronicles Best Of John Fogerty-Centerfield Genesis-...And Then There Were Three... Jimi Hendrix-Electric Ladyland Billy Joel-The Stranger L.A. Guns-S/T Bruno Mars-Unorthodox Jukebox Motley Crue-The Dirt Soundtrack Simple Minds-Glittering Prize Patty Smyth-S/T U2-The Joshua Tree    
    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:
