I have been a bit absent to the absorption of many a fine song this year. However, this being a "favorite song" thread actually makes it easier (for ME) to post my selection. Never in a billion years did I forsee myself pursuing a track by a band called Primal Fear, but that is precisely how it went down. The name itself does not suggest a Melodic Rock genre-fit. However, I am totally

Still no dice, folks. This song is slower than the last few that were posted.

I sincerely appreciate the help, but no correct answers as of yet. The phrase, "what the hell is going on" is not in the song title. Actually, that is the 4th line during a verse in the song. I can rest-assure that this one is not Bon Jovi, Viva, or any of the above-mentioned artists. If anyone has any further ideas, I would be most-grateful. FIND it and I shall be chuffed it bits!!!

Nobody got it yet. The singer reminded me a bit of Michael Bormann. I am not saying it WAS him singing, but the vocal is more his style. I wish like hell I could remember what the song is. Help me!!!

There is a certain Melodic Rock song that I used to know, but I forgot the title. The only lyric that comes to mind (of all lyrics) are: "What the hell is going on". Anyone?????

I am beginning to wonder of "our crowd" here would be happier with a 5-song EP. In MY mind, more tracks means that you are getting the bigger bang for the buck. I am pleased with a range of 10 to 17 songs. If all (or most of it) is great music, then how can you NOT enjoy the full bliss?

I would have to disagree. Most of today's new MR releases are filled with guitarists doing their own thang. Aside from VH tribute bands, the only obvious EVH-influenced guitarist was Vito Bratta, who had the amazing ability to blend a cohesive EVH/Vito Bratta style. Quite brilliant, really. Present-day, I am not hearing blatant EVH influence, but that's just me. Interesting topic, mate.

I love ACDC. I have for decades, really. But that distinct edge is absent, just as it were on the Black Ice album.

I had the privilege of seeing Survivor in concert with Jimi at the mic. The year was around 2000 and this was an outdoor concert which included (in this order): Survivor, Rick Springfield, Joe Walsh, and the headliner was Foreigner. Here is a very interesting interview with Jimi, beginning with Part 1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvBryMxv6dc

It appears (to my ears) that 98% of all New Releases have been ruined by auto-tune. It has became a rarity to hear RAW talent in honest form anymore. I do pay attn to new releases in search of anything melodic to my taste that sounds genuine. However, I almost ALWAYS listen to non-current releases. Different strokes.....

I too am quite the fan of autobiographies. I am currently reading "My Cross To Bear" by Gregg Allman and a biography called "The Wrecking Crew" by Kent Hartman, which is "The inside story of Rock and Roll's best-kept secret: The unknown studio musicians who recorded the soundtrack of a generation". In fact, bass legend Carol Kaye sent me unedited transcripts of inval

Stryper, here. Their Soldiers Under Command album has stood the test of time. Stryper as a whole is greater than the sum of it's parts. Here's an example of Stryper Strength. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1r7kH_QeR2c

"Don't make people pay for music", says Amanda Palmer. "Let them". In a passionate talk that begins with her days as a street performer (drop a dollar in the hat for the Eight-Foot Bride!), she examines the new relationship between artist and fan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMj_P_6H69g

The mention of Joel and Night Ranger reaps a serious stream of wishful thinking: I would be absolutely chuffed to bits is the new guitarist were to be Jeff Watson. Imo, he would fit perfectly. However, I do not anticipate Sir Watson as being THE new WS guitarist.

CCM.... Good choice in terms of Melodic vocal lines. However, what ruins it for me is the all-too-obvious auto-tune on her voice. My guess is, she probably uses it in a live setting, as well. If nothing else, this young bird makes for decent eye candy.

As I see it, they successfully found their own niche and most of their shows are sold out. They are excellent musicians who make fun of the so-called "serious side" of the genre. I see no reason to "make a serious album". Their success continues to build, as is. Why change up the formula?

Like some here, I am a fan of the Velocity "Impact" CD. I am not a huge fan of power ballads in general, but DV shines undeniably throughout this track. Velocity - Janine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1co57jbJtqo

I suspect this to be the video that won Tom over. David nails that mega-high note toward the end. Perhaps that sealed the deal. However, Tom would have to confirm this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBzUKuFXRfY

I will be seeing Fran in concert next weekend. As per David Victor, he is an arrogant bloke who poses so hard onstage that, for me, it is quite unbearable. I was tight with a tech (from Boston's previous tour) who said that DV's ego had become so huge, that nobody could talk to him. The Rock Star appeared to be above it all. I am not trying to slander David with deliberate effect. I am simply poi

Terry..... I won't rate that player as being "a dime a dozen", but my assessment is far from askew. This guy is NOT the "world's best guitarist", nor is he even "awesome". If you take closer note, he using his right hand to pick at a fast speed, but his left hand (on the fret board) is very sloppy and cannot keep up. His notes do not ring out as clear and distinc
