Great White: Rock Me

the 80′s kick continues.  Here is Rock Me, by Great White. The 80′s Rocked!  

Some Brief Commentary on Justin Bieber

You can make many observations about Justin Bieber.  I think this pic sums it up best… 20 years from now, VH1 will have one of those “Behind the Music,” has-been specials about Justin Bieber. Rush will likely still be touring.

Donnie Iris: Love is Like a Rock

And the 80′s fest continues with Donnie Iris and Love is Like a Rock… Also makes me remember the DVE Morning show from the 90′s.

I’m still in a 80′s metal mood.  Here’s a selection from the Scorpions; the Zoo… And, as a bonus, here is another rendition of the Scorpions classic… Good night all!

Rockin’ With Dokken!

As some many have noted, I’m on an 80′s kick as of late.  And in the 80′s, I was a Dokken fan.  I missed the gym this evening, but I’m still in 80′s mode.  So, here are some tunes from Dokken… Enjoy this slice of the 80′s, with Dokken!

More 2Cellos: Back in Black and Welcome to the Jungle

The other night, I posted a video of 2Cellos performing Thunderstruck, but AC/DC.  Here are more… Who would have thought that Back in Black, and Welcome to the Jungle could be performed on the cello? 2Cellos did!

Night Ranger: Don’t Tell Me You Love Me

Don’t tell me you love me. Don’t tell me.  I don’t want to know. I was at the gym tonight, and my almost decade old SanDisk Sansa is about to give up the ghost.  I switched to my phone, but my usual content isn’t on there, so I ended up listening to some 80′s hairband stuff.   This was one of the songs… No messages implied here, just a good song, from a decent band, from a great decade. Oh, and don’t tell me you love me, mmkay?

School Kids Sing Iron Maiden?

We all got a tad bit upset with the “Barak Hussein Obama, MMMM, MMMM, MMMM” song.  So how about if school children sang Flight of Icarus, by Iron Maiden? This is part of a charity effort by Kerrang, not to deify a poor liar.  So, what do you think?
