    I do love Dance Hall Days from Wang Chung and that Springsteen album, and I love the song Footloose but honestly I have never actually seen the movie.

    I must have went with a basic ass top 5 this time around (I did) since none of them have shown up yet.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Albums - 1984

    I have a little time to get this small batch out.

    The 30 Pointers are hopping down the bunny trail:


    Love at First Sting - The Scorpions (The EC #4, Kari HoHo #5)



    Spoiler:





    Building the Perfect Beast - Don Henley (Ms Flock #3)



    Spoiler:





    The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking - Roger Waters (#3 Mikk)



    Spoiler:




    Out of the Cellar - Ratt (#3 Jake Your Booty)



    Spoiler:




    The Easter entry has the album that solidified the Scorpions as a major headlining metal band in the States. The album that made Henley a major solo star, granted his songs were generally written by others, with Mike Campbell from the Heartbreakers writing Boys of Summer, but man he can sing. I haven't listened enough to the Roger Waters album to really talk about it, but I do like that song and others I've heard. Concept albums are hit and miss for me. Out of the Cellar was the album that put Ratt on the map and their best selling album.

    Solid section of the list there. Scorpions, Henley and RATT are all great and the Waters album is arguably his best work post-Floyd. Fun times indeed.

    I have no idea how I missed The Scorpions album. Could have been my number five...

    I love Ratt but I always thought Invasion of Your Privacy was a better album than Out of the Cellar was.

    I also love Warrant but they just aren’t the same without Janie Lane. Big night for you though I’m sure you’ll have a blast and Nick will be with you in spirit.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Albums - 1984

    The 40 Pointer's:



    Vital Signs - Survivor (Jake Your Booty #2)



    Spoiler:




    Wheel's Are Turnin' - REO Speedwagon (Wang Chung #2)



    Spoiler:




    Make It Big - Wham! (Slick Mitch #2)



    Spoiler:




    Like A Virgin - Madonna (Bro #2)



    Spoiler:




    The Smiths - The Smiths (Jiggy #2)



    Spoiler:




    Double Nickels on the Dime - Minutemen (Mister Miracle #2)



    Spoiler:




    Another great eclectic batch of albums. I forgot how good Vital Signs really is, such a super strong Pop Rock album. Peterik and Sullivan were a fantastic songwriting duo. REO Speedwagon's album was the turning point of the band, super huge hit with "I Can't Fight This Feeling," but it made Gary Richrath want to leave the band, which he would after the next album. Wham! quickly became a vehicle just for George Michael, but Andrew Ridgeley did just fine. He co-wrote "Careless Whisper" which was presented as a Michael solo song, though credited to the band. Hard to believe when you sell 21+ million copies worldwide, it's not your biggest album, but that's the case for Madonna. Such a massive career. The Smiths debut established the band as a force to be reckoned with. Minutemen's career was extremely short lived, but very influential. Singer-guitarist D. Boon would die a year after this release sadly.

    Survivor is a criminally underrated power pop band. I saw them live one year and I was like holy fuck I know almost all these songs. I thought Journey sang half of the songs I knew but I made a mistake I think man people did. In closing Survivor rules.

    Survivor and Speedwagon were both pretty close to making my list so it's nice to see them get some representation here. Such a stacked year and we've barely scratched the surface so far. Can't wait to see what's next.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Albums - 1984

    Time for the 50 Pointers:


    Defenders of the Faith - Judas Priest (Creeping Death #3, King Steventon #4)



    Spoiler:




    Heartbeat City - The Cars (Jiggy #3, Fuji Vice #4)



    Spoiler:




    Perfect Strangers - Deep Purple (Mikk #1)



    Spoiler:




    Bon Jovi - Bon Jovi (Ms Flock #1)



    Spoiler:




    Hard to Hold Soundtrack - Rick Springfield (Jake Your Booty #1)



    Spoiler:



    Another wonderful group of albums, with just enough substance and cheese in all them to make each great in their own way. Priest's sound was changing as the 80's went on, they were headed into the synthesized guitar sound and Halford started growing the Turbo Lover mullet which holds a special place in my heart. Heartbeat City was the only album that came close to their debut as far as sales. The band was made for MTV, which made Ocasek the frontman, which I hated, because Ben Orr was the man. Lots of hits on that one, including their biggest song "Drive," sung by Orr and the video where Paulina Porizkova somehow fell for Ric Ocasek.....I Know. I like Bon Jovi's debut album, but I always heard that the band played on very little of the album and it's Jon and studio guys mainly...still pretty good. I like the song Perfect Strangers, I even liked the show Perfect Strangers, but the album as a whole, not very much. I really liked Dr. Noah Drake's movie Hard to Hold, it's surprisingly decent and the soundtrack is even better. Patti Hansen who plays his co-songwriter and the psycho chick in the movie, has been married to Keith Richards for 35 years.

    I knew I’d be the only one in on the Springfield action but he’s just so damn good. Love that Cars album too
