Best 80's ROCK tune

Postby randy » Sun Apr 16, 2006 12:54 am

Not new wave, not punk , not alternative ,not disco--ROCK--not even bands that could be considered New Wave--such as the Cars--just ROCK. Bands like Petty , Scorpians, Geils, BOC , ETC--What was the best???

Without much thought put into it Im thinking--Golden Earring--Twilight Zone.

Your choice?

I'm probably forgetting good rockers from the late 80s, but off the top of my head I'll go with "The Voice" by the Moody Blues. I'm sure I'll think of something more rocky later.

I'd have to think about that for awhile. There's probably about 3 hours worth of 80's rock tunes I secretly turn up if I'm alone in the car. Probably nothing recorded after 1984 or so, though.

Some contenders off the top of my head:
Joan Jett - I Love Rock & Roll
Blue Oyster Cult - Burnin' For You
Aldo Nova - Fantasy
Saga - On The Loose
Scorpions - No One Like You
Journey - Separate Ways
Def Leppard - Photograph
Dio - Rainbow In The Dark
Rainbow - Street Of Dreams

I wish Don't Fear The Reaper was an 80's tune, because that would be the easy winner for me.

One of the best examples of 80's rock at it's best...

"Flyin' High Again" By Ozzy and Randy Rhoades.

Forget all the recent shenanigans from Ozzy. Back in the day, he ruled. Get through Randy's guitar solo and tell me I'm wrong.

Rush was great. I don't know if anyone else noticed the same, but in my school it was always the most seriously knuckle-dragging burnouts that loved them. I just always thought that was weird since Rush seemed to be operating on a much higher level than the other shit those guys liked.

Same in my school. I don't get it either. I guess having a passable IQ isn't always required to like good music.

[i]The Wall[/i] and Van Halen's best came out in the late 70's, so I'll go with Rush. "Subdivisions" was my anthem. On the other end of the decade, it's "Sweet Child O Mine" and "Welcome to the Jungle".

[/quote]Not trying to burn you here, but "Twilight Zone" was featured on Just Can't Get Enough: New Wave Hits Of The '80s, Vol. 6 [ http://www.discogs.com/release/432821 ]

I think ElectricLash nailed it. It's not necessarily my favorite, but AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long" is arguably the best '80s rock song. It came out in 1980 and has been one of the most loved rock songs of all-time ever since. It continues, to this very day, capture the heart of nearly every 16 year old coming up in the USA, therefore maintaining its popularity well into its 3rd decade of glory.
