Wow - no Scorpions choices?!? I mean, I would've expected Still Loving You or Winds of Chain, altho my choice would be Send Me an Angel.

Still Loving You still gives me goosebumps.
That's one of my favorite rock ballads of all time.

Love that song as well.   Killer stuff, and still holds up today.

Never been a fan of Whitesnake's Is This Love. In fact, as much as I love the band that plays on it, I'm on record as saying that album is severely overrated.

But, man, was Tawny hot in that video!

Who?






WOW, had to ruin it didn't ya  :tdwn haha

And Yes Scorpions Still Loving You is one of the best, And Great White Save All Your Love, Cinderella Don't Know What You Got Till It's Gone and Long Cold Winter.

But this was tough, lots of great ones on that list.

Faithfully
Love Bites
Home Sweet Home
Alone Again
Every Rose Has It's Thorn

I went with:
Faithfully
Love Bites
Keep On Loving You
Alone Again
and Home Sweet Home, altho I could've easily swapped it for the Foreigner or VH tracks.
As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

Does "Silent Lucidity" fall into the category?  If so...it would be my choice.  If not... Whitesnake.  :hat

Yea that's one of my favourites as well.
There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.
