    Genius level post, HH. No question, that chorus is one of the best and most "singable".

    Also it has got me searching around on youtube and finding just a ton of old obscure songs I've always liked. I like the feature on youtube where it lists similar music styles to the one you are actually playing on the right hand side of the screen. I keep digging deeper and deeper finding good old songs.

    Frank Marino is a phenomenal talent. Like Robin Trower, his trippy guitar tone is not everyone's cup of tea, but the man can play and sing.

    Couldnt agree more fellas!! I enjoy every musical thread, Ive downloaded more music lately thanks to them, whether it's music from the 70's to current, I either forgot, or never heard, so I applaud all that add to them!! Keep it up!

    ^ Nice choices. And who could forget the chorus in "Pour Some Sugar On Me Redux"?

    Just a massive chorus from a debut album which is appreciated now more than in 1975, the year it was released. Frank Dimino can belt it. Saw them in 1976 as opening act for Rush and ZZ Top.

    Solo effort from gifted Angel keyboardist, Greg Giuffria.

    I was just listening to this (Giuffria) on my ipod before I saw your post.

    This is the one I thought of. Maybe the catchiest (and most overplayed) rock song of the last 10 years. Vocally, I can hear how you can mistake it for PJ, but the music doesn't sound anything alike.

    Susanna helped get me through puberty.

    The fact that she never makes eye contact with the camera is cool. I don't think she ever did in any of their videos. To me, it always gave her this "hot, but not full of herself" image. Always liked that.

    That's my point. When first hearing the tune, I was surprised at the different sound approach Pearl Jam was taking. It took me all of two minutes to find out it wasn't Eddie and the band, but Creed. But I will guarantee you that virtually anyone who heard that song on the radio, not seeing Scott Stapp on video, thought it was Eddie Vedder.

    Great appraisal. Something about her exquisite face just draws you in, and projects the confidence of a fun chick who would be a great girlfriend.



    How bad would I want to be back in these days, walking into that room, knowing that Susanna and I would soon spend the entire weekend figuring out new ways to get each other off? "No, keep the pearls on."







    She still looks pretty awesome/hot, especially with the Rickenbacker strapped on.

    Always liked Elvis. Haven't seen him live in quite a while.

    Here is an article with about T-Rex's "Teenage Dream" being on the new Scott Pilgrim soundtrack. (Song 9)

    Thanks for the article. Very interesting read. Of all the great T-Rex songs from which to choose, I'm stumped as to why they would pick "Teenage Dream". Maybe it worked with the script.

    The song is quite overwrought, and somewhat of a reworking of "Rabbit Fighter" (posted below), from The Slider. It's also from one of my least favorite of Marc's albums, Zinc Alloy and the Hidden Riders of Tomorrow--A Creamed Cage in August. To me, this record signaled the end of Marc's relevance in the glam/pop rock world.

    This one gets into the deepest recesses of your mind. You'll be singing this chorus for weeks. A real rave up.

    Strictly speaking technical musicianship, this band was pretty damn good. Rod Morgenstern is an amazing drummer who played for the Dixie Dregs and Reb Beach was a bad ass on the guitar. I actually dug these guys back in the day (saw them open for Cinderella with The Bullet Boys) minus the pretty boy sh*t.

    AWFUL song, just plain horrible.

    Totally surprised someone didn't mention "Big Empty" by Stone Temple Pilots...to me, it's the prototypical huge chorus song:

    Morganstern kicks a$$, as does Beach, who is currently on loan from Whitesnake's to tour with a reformed Winger.

    As for the Def Leppard song, I think that's called, "We all need summer houses, so let's slap something together quickly which sounds like one of our hits."

    Ah yes, a true forgotten classic. Nice one.

    I don't think that these Irish brothers ever got their due, but they could really rock.

    And then there's this MSG classic, one of my all-time faves. I often catch my wife around the house singing "and when I'm sad and lonely . . . . oh, oh, oh . . . who's gonna rock my nights away?" If she (a stereotypical current top-40 fan) finds the chorus catchy, I figured I had to post it in this thread.
