Running With the Devil
Quote:Oh, Pete, Pete, Pete. We'll forgive you because you did a bang up job pinch hitting for Gernot(and because you're a moderator), but this song came from Van Halen's classic first album released in 1978. It was required listening for any boy growing up in the early 80's, but it's a 70's song. And a great one, too. One of those songs where everything seems to work, lyrics, vocals, and, of course, the guitar.
Darn it, what's with all these 80s bands starting in the 70s? You're confusing me!
At least it's a good song? Have you heard the isolated vocal track. David Lee Roth does some crazy vocals on this track.
Quote:This album was an overnight sensation back in 1985. All of a sudden, everyone was into the Beastie Boys. It was a big step in getting white boys into rap. This song is good with lyrics, telling a story with lots of attitude, and, for a 15 year old, was like nothing I'd ever heard before. The whiffle ball bat line got lots of snickers back then.
When I first heard this album I was about 15 too and it totally blew my mind. I loved it.
Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)
Quote:For some reason, I never really liked this song. Annie Lennox has a great voice, but I never got into this, back in the day, or as I got older.
Really, I've always loved this song.
