A few weeks ago I started what I considered to be an ambitious side project, collecting the greatest 80's power/monster ballads. Apparently, many of you felt this was also a noble effort. J
Now, I'm going to try and take this a step further. I'm going to try to get a CD together of each and every 70's/80's/90's song with "love" featured in the title. I was going to include the 60's, but hey…I've got to go to back to work some time. Now a little about me: I'm a lifelong rocker, but I like all genres of music, so there's some dance, some new wave, perhaps some country, and some Top 40 pop stuff.
Here's what I came up with off the top of my head:
q Depeche Mode – "Strangelove"
q Def Leppard - "When Love & Hate Collide"
q Book of Love "I Touch Roses" (OK…this is the band's name, not the song title, but it's a great new wave dance song)
q Erasure – "Chains of Love"
q Scorpions – "Lovedrive"
q Scorpions - “Still Loving You“
q Def Leppard - “Love Bites“
q Kiss - “I Still Love You“
q Kiss – "Love Gun"
q Tesla - “Love Song“ (these guys started gigging on
q The Cardigans – "Lovefool"
q Pantera - "This Love"
q Motley Crue – "Too Young to Fall in Love"
q Kelly Clarkson – "The Trouble with Love Is" (Kelly and I have the same birthday - April 24! And ironically, so does Barbara Streisand!)
q Dokken – "It's Not Love"
q Tonic – "The Way She Love Me"
q W.A.S.P. – "Love Machine"
q FireHouse – "Love of A Lifetime"
q Queensryche – "I Don't Believe in Love"
What I need is your help…feel free to add your own songs…there are undoubtedly many I missed out on. Have fun with this!
