This one came up yesterday when I drove across the river to refill Tux's insulin prescription.  It's from the 2 discs worth of material that didn't make the 100% album.  It actually reminds me of "Bohemian Rhapsody".  Not really sonically but structurally.  It starts with a slow, contemplative section for two verses then morphs into a harder-rocking midsection before transitioning back to the original sound.  Just like Rhapsody does.

The beginning of the end of Def Leppard for me. There are a few decent tracks on Hysteria but this is where they started getting way too polished and poppy

Yes I agree, I like a few songs, but not all. Pyromania was their peak.

I listened to that and thought "Wow that's really retro".  Then I looked them up.  No it's not "retro", it's actually from the era it sounds like it's from.  Laughing

Knowing that helps me appreciate the sound more.

Somebody over at HoM started a thread about Billy Duffy, guitarist for The Cult.  That made me think of Coloursound, a seemingly odd combination featuring Duffy on guitar and Mike Peters, vocalist for The Alarm.  I looked all over the place for the CD back in the 90s and finally scored it off of Ebay.  I think this song is the best and it sounds like what it is; The Alarm singing a Cult song:

I've never heard of the band before. That IS a pretty good song.

That song is pretty good. I can't say as I've ever heard of that band before. When I first saw the name, I thought they were actually from Manitoba.

It's the band Dave Manitoba started after The Dictators broke up. It's their only album to my knowledge. Good, old fashioned party rock. When Andrew WK came out I thought it was a new MWK album.

Every time I see this band's name I think of "Metal Crue" by Sabaton.

"'An - hill-ater' chasing you..."

That's how they say it, "An...hill...ater"
