There are songs I always go back to. I might prefer some other songs at some stage but at the end of the day, certain songs just win the Big Prize....

Blackfoot: I love "Diary Of A Working Man", "Fly Away" and others but "Highway Song" is THE one for me. This is a flawless song. To me, not only Blackfoot's best song but also the best Southern Rock song ever.

AC/DC: "Let Me Put My Love Into You". I love it when Johnson sings the blues. This is a brilliant melody. Angus is a great blues player. I really like the band but regardless of how much I love "Shoot To Thrill", "Gone Shootin'" or "Riff Raff", this particular song will always be my absolute favourite.

Bon Jovi: "Dry County". This song combines the best of the "old" and "new" BJ. It has a huge "Americana" side to it. Superb piano into, great lyrics and Sambora's best solo ever. And to top it off, another stunning performance from Tico Torres.

Mr. Big: "Big Love". I love the blues, so this song had to appeal to me. I love the groove and "swagger". Eric Martin sounds amazingly cool, and the whole band is superb.

Black Sabbath: "Anno Mundi".... strange choice probably considering that "Tyr" did not sell and knowing that BS had about 10 classics in their catalogue. Still, absolutely love the riff and the heaviness of this song. Cozy was not a groovy drummer by any stretch of the imagination, and it actually bothers me on quite a few of his recordings, but when he is in the zone, like here, he's great.

Dio: the first two albums are fabulous. Among all the great songs RJD wrote, I believe there is nothing much better than "Egypt". I love this hypnotic riff and the whole atmosphere of the song. There something captivating about "Egypt" that totally... well, captivates me :-) It is also different than what I would normally expect from RJD.

Michael Boton: my guilty secret pleasure! :-) I am a huge fan of his voice. He might not always sing the best material, mostly self-pennned, but there is absolutely no denying that the man can sing. He actually would put to shame most rock singers, that is how good the man is. My favourite song of his is "Wait On Love" off "The Hunger". It is a great uptempo song with the right mix of AOR and Motown. I chose a song he wrote, although my favourite vocal performance of his is "Georgia On My Mind".

Glenn Hughes: "If YOu Don't Want Me To". I cannot stand Glenn when he screams. It bores me to death. However, when he sings he has moment of brilliance. This ballad is a perfect example of how good he can be when he check his ego at the door. Great song, great singing. Nothing to change.

David Coverdale: "Time And Again". Everytime I listen to this song, I am travelling to beautiful places in my mind. I (used to) love DC's voice. No longer as much since 1984 but until then he was God to me. This particular song is probably the most emotional recorded vocals of his ever. It may not be perfect, but it is so raw and so real. One of the greatest undiscovered jewels of the 70's.
