Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair - The Twilight Singers. I've had this cover on the ol' shuffle machine since it came out but I've never bothered to see who was the original singer. Oh, I guess it was some Appalachian folk tune that was covered by Nina Simone. Good enough. Not gonna seek it out. I like this version.
American Cheese (Jerry's Pianto) - King's X. They're trying too hard to be the Beatles. Ear Candy is decent enough but this song needs a serious dose of rock to make it listenable.
I Remember You - Skid Row. I've slow danced to this song. Often. Most of those dances were in the dark and by myself. I was also in my late twenties when all of the dances happened.... Oh yeah, I refused to use my arms. Just a dark room and a lonely fella with dead arms shuffling around and calling it dancing. The way God intended. Well, the solo is the best power ballad solo ever recorded. Hyperbole!!!! *it really is.
Oh No - The Commodores. Lionel Richie is one of my favorite singers. This is really good pop/soul music produced by a more than capable band. If Lionel was handsome he'd be the biggest star in the world. But he's not. He's ugly. Very, very ugly.
The Hunter - Dokken. I'm sick of Dokken. I've worn out my appreciation for the old Dokken stuff by seeing the shitty current version several times over the last few years. When I say "shitty version" I don't mean the band. All of the replacement players are supremely skilled. I mean Don Dokken. He's a fat, drunken mess that doesn't care about putting on a decent show. Save your money if Dokken comes to your town.
