The 'QOL Rock Compilation Album'

Postby fairydandy » Sun Aug 20, 2017 11:42 am

Ok, so following on from my 'Best Rock Song Ever' thread (and the difficulty people were having in just picking one song) - let me change it ever so slightly, by asking for just one track to add to the compilation (no longer 'best ever'). I want a great 'rock compilation' to play in the car. You can pick just one song only, that's the rule, so make it a good one! I'm going to make this album and think of you guys....ahhh. :P ;-)

My track, as last time, remains the same. Civil War by GnR.

Oh and the other rule, no Queen songs will be allowed...

This is so difficult to get right. There are many great rock bands out there all with great songs. But there is one band that no one else will nominate so I am going to select one of theirs. It might not be the best rock song ever but it comes from maybe one of the most underrated bands ever.That band of course is Thunder and it is tough to pick even one of theirs. So I will plump for a recent track that is a pretty simple blues type rocker.

Your scars are beautiful, like the Jade
You'll still shine when you sink into the sea
Where the bleeding scarlet jealousy
Carves away your belief

OK, now I'm gonna put something weird just to mess with you. :lol:

I do actually really like this song, though. If anyone remembers Ladybaby, that Japanese group with the bearded crossdresser, which I think went semi-"viral" on YouTube a little while back, the lead singer here was in that. :P

Resurrection Day by Thunder is pretty damn good. So that one can go here :D

Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

I think on this occasion I'd go for Rock And Roll from Led Zeppelin's fourth album.

Always liked this one for just how over-the-top 80s it is.

I love that album! I was working in a record store when that came out and I bought it because of the album cover.

Great stuff! I just had to buy the album again, I knew I had it somewhere, but it's vanished now! :P
