(Reprise) Sandblasted Skin - Pantera. I feel cheated that there will never be another Pantera album. This is aggression, hate and groove all rolled into a fantastic song. Dimebag deserves every bit of praise he's ever gotten.
Alabama - Neil Young. It's the song that gave life to Skynyrd's Sweet Home Alabama. Thanks Neil! Beyond that, it's a pretty damn good song on it's own. Mr. Young is a craftsman.
Bed Of Roses - The Statler Brothers. There's just something soulful about The Statler Brothers. The hint of subversion was way before the time. Stellar.
Don't Let Go - Ratt. Another reason why Infestation is one of the best Ratt albums. Metal with a pop sensibility. Gonna go ahead and declare Ratt as the pinnacle "hair metal" band of the era. Yay!
Higher Than God - King's X. Another superb Shuffle tonight. Every kind of music that's worth listening to is represented. This has always been one of my favorite King's X songs, a great example of the essence of the band. Experimental, bass driven, great harmonies...
