Poison makes me think of someone..


The cult!!! How could I forget??? Nice one:ok:

Cock Rock - Bands like Motley Crue, Poison etc who can only sing about sh***ing 20 women and drinking 15 pints of beer a night while high on smack.:rolleyes:

Are The Buzzcocks a little earlier than you were looking?

"Ever fallen in love?" is a great tune.

28th Oct 2004, 16:10

My dear boy you are after songs to while away the boredom

Dire straits Romeo and Juliet

But the best: for one who needs to be amused is

The Cars - Drive
A Myles - Black Velvet
Chicargo - Hard to say your sorry
Cutting Crew - Died in your arms tonight
John Waite - Missing you

Hope at least one is on the list to soothe your beaten brow

Why only 10 songs?

28th Oct 2004, 17:04
Probably only got a 64mb MP3 player :{

28th Oct 2004, 17:10
Naaa, just subscribed for 10 initially, having enough trouble thinking of 10 that are

a) Brilliant

b) Not already on Flytests CD rack already.

28th Oct 2004, 17:27
Personal favourites for cranking up the volume when no one else about:

Free All Right Now

Van Halen Jump

ZZ Top Gimme All Your Lovin

Jimmy Page Gallows Pole

Plus (a little outside your time frame):

Rolling Stones Sympathy For The Devil

28th Oct 2004, 17:49
might as well go for some nice long songs then. how about The End by The Doors, tis a good 10 minutes long

itchy kitchin
28th Oct 2004, 18:12
...or Southern Man by Crosby Stills Nash and Young. On the live version he introduces it by saying "this is a real long song, and tonight we're gonna play it real slow"

great tune though.

28th Oct 2004, 21:09
What.......no AC/DC????????? "Thunderstruck", and one of their ballads for contrast - err, "Giving The Dog A Bone" ?

28th Oct 2004, 22:34
So what was the final selection then FT?

29th Oct 2004, 01:22
The Golden Hits Of Slim Whitman. Great stuff.

stomp stomp stomp...

Good friend of mine used to be maried to a chick from Charlottetown. Guess what everyone called her? :E

29th Oct 2004, 02:43
Though it's from long before your timeline, Gimme Some Lovin' by the Spencer Davis Group is an all-time fave. It's really hard to have a bad day when listening to that song. Now as an earlier poster mentioned, "Thunderstruck" is an awesome tune if you've got the subwoofers cranked!
