CLASSIC RAWK [May. 28th, 2003|10:41 pm]
Okrzyki, przyjaciel!
Done for a friend of my son's for a graduation present. He has an ironic fascination with Ronny James Dio, and all things 80s Hair Metal.
The sad thing is how effective a listening experience I found the CD.
Everything here is insanely, annoyingly catchy, well produced, and often comprise quite spirited renditions. Their essential dopiness, when juxtaposed thusly seems synergistic.

I don't know why I found this track assortment fun when I find most classic rock stations deadly. Maybe it's the SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY Ads.

Well my process was to fire up Kazaa and just start grabbing songs that had irritated me over the years. So I've obviously missed several paragons of crap. Fact was, I downloaded probably 10 more songs, and had to make a cut somewhere.

I mean c'mon -- where's "Pour Some Sugar" by Def Leppard? And the fatboy slim mix is out of place, except for the way it manages to square or cube the cheesiness of the original.
