Another Breaking Benjamin song, Never Again. I like the song, but it's a pretty cool story video to watch.

A few days ago I heard this tune on a local radio station (and was surprised as hell) while driving and remembered just how catchy it was BITD. So now its share time for some RATT goodness!

Haha, good song there. I've been hitting the 80s tunes lately and these two were on the streaming channel I had playing at work on Friday. Really took me back.

Gypsy Road is a great song on Cinderella's Long Cold Winter album. Catchy as hell! I got to see them in concert once back in 1988 when they opened for AC/DC, IIRC.

This one goes back to 1977 from the first band I became a fan as a very young lad. F'n love the guitar lead break!

I was a junior in high school when this came out in '91. I still remember hanging out at my friend John's house after school when the video first hit MTV. Probably my most favorite before I stopped listening to GnR.

I've been working over a lot lately due to fiscal end of year requirements and have been able to get some good RUSH songs in while doing so. I've always liked the following song but it struck a new chord with me this past week. Maybe I wasn't old enough, or seasoned enough, or self aware enough, etc to more fully appreciate the lyrics but Time Stand Still is my new favorite RUSH tune. I hope you enjoy it, too.

I think this would be appropriate for a night like tonight. Oldie but goodie.

Great choice! I remember when that video debuted way back in the day.
