Kick ass tunes.  Go:

I tend toward glam, heair metal, and good stuff of the like.  Here is "I'll Be Waiting" by Talisman, featuring singer Jeff Scott Soto

Absolutely!
I almost listed this but I figured it'd be too obscure. I had this on tape. Unfortunately it's long gone.
I remember this being a great album. I gotta find it!

Great job King!!

I also had this on cassette and loved this album.  The guitarist went on to be in a band with Billy Sherwood of Yes fame and it was called World Trade.

"Two Sides of Love" by Sammy Hagar, pre-Van Halen.  Great guitar, great chorus, all-around excellent tune.  You can hear how young Sammy's voice sounds.

And don't forget it.   ;)

Thursdays = Cozmo.  Swoon at your leisure.

I was going to try to find "The Girl Gets Around" by Hagar (in keepin gwith last week), from the Footloose soundtrack, but couldn't find a version that's do it justice.  So enjoy this.  Today's offering is a bit off the normal track, "Behind the Wall of Sleep" by the Smithereens.  Probably my favorite song by these guys, just excellent almost rockabilly kinda vibe in parts (on the studio version, at least).

In homage to our fearless leader, here's Y&T's "Summertime Girls".  Bikinis, 80's rock, excellent vocals (courtesy of Bosk's buddy Dave Meniketti), and an excellent guitar solo.  Catchy-assed tune.  How can you possibly go wrong???

Screwed, Blue, & Tattooed by Sleeze Beez.  Appears to be exactly the kind of dirtbag 80's hair rock that I love.  BVD, this may be a band worth looking into.  I need to research further myself.  I just happened to stumble on these guys the other day and thought "oh yeah, this looks to have potential."

Cool. I've been meaning to get into more 80s stuff. I've recently been listening more to White Lion (I only have one album) and Dokken (I only have two albums). I quite like Back for the Attack, although Under Lock and Key isn't anywhere near as good.
I haven't had much time to explore much "new" stuff in the last few months though. Probably time for some more random picks.

BFTA is excellent, but for me, UL&K will always be their best album.  Love it.  I used to have a copy of White Lion's Pride and it is an excellent album.  Vito Bratta is excellent.

Pride is the White Lion album I have. ALL YOU NEED IS ROCK N ROLL, BABY!
So should I feel any need to check out any more Dokken, or should I just stick with the ones I've got? I just want more stuff like that. I do seem to much prefer the music at the tail end of the 80s :metal

Tooth and Nail is an awesome album as well.  Just Got Lucky, Tooth and Nail, Heartless Heart, Into the Fire, Bullets to Spare.  And, of course, Alone Again.  Awesome.  I need to go dig that one out myself and give it a listen again.

Yeah, T&N is defintely their best studio album. I don't know. I like their stuff in general, but I could never really throw on one of theor albums and really rock out.

I saw White Lion (open for Y&T/Ace Frehley) back in 1987. Maybe someone could link a recommendation, because I really was not impressed by them.

Their two biggest hits were Wait and the slightly less well known Tell Me.

Wait

Tell Me
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgMZPhp8rvA

Of course there's When the Children Cry, but I personally don't care for it.

You don't like Tell Me?

Okay, here's a live version of "All You Need is Rock and Roll".  There was no actual video for it, so this is about the best audio available on the net.  Song starts around 1:41.

Not knowing what tonight has in store, I will post up a video prior to Thirsty Thursday Evening:

Alcatrazz - God Blessed Video.

Cheesy assed video, but Graham Bonnet can sing like nobody's business.  This song makes me wanna jump in a Cheetah or on a PCJ-600 and cruise the strip on Ocean Beach, stopping off at my room at the Ocean View motel before going around the corner to the Pole Position club for a little R&R.  Surely this isn't an insanely obscure reference, right?  Either way, it also has Steve Vai and that's always a good thing.

Mr. Big Live in San Francisco (1992).  Covering "Shy Boy" a song written by Billy Sheehan in his old band (prior to Roth), Talas.  Great guitar and bass acrobatics going on.  Pay attention to the unison parts in the 2nd verse.  Awesome.
