I took a liking to "You Really Rock Me" by Nick (Hot Child In The City) Gilder. It's kinda weird. The verses are still standard pop for Gilder, but the chorus is a glam rock masterpiece (imo).

(You Really) Rock Me

"Sycamore Leaves" by a-ha. A good addition to one's Halloween music compilation.

Robert Palmer's Bad Case Of Loving You is pretty heavy compared to most of his other hits

There's no telling where the money went"

Fine Time, I'd say this is a much heavier Robert Palmer tune made with Lowell George (Little Feat) and The Meters. So much better than all that synth pop he made in the eighties.

This Wheels On Fire-The Byrds. The Byrds made many great albums even through their unpopular period. They explored several styles of music but they did not venture too much into a heavy or hard rock style. But they did on this track! A runner up would be Tiffany Lamp which sounds a lot like Jumpin Jack Flash! These tracks were so good, wish they had done a few more harder edge songs.

Face the Fire and Phoenix--Dan Fogelberg
I worked at an A/C station at the time and both of those songs were good to go...so I skipped the "longer than there've been phishes in the ocean" crap and played one of the other two...plus I played the song Tullimore Dew which was an accoustic intro to Phoenix...after all the Abba and Manilow those songs sounded gooooood...as did Christopher Cross' "Ride Like the Stupid Wind"...it's all a matter of perspective and survival I guess.

(I truly do feel like the biggest pu$$y for liking "Ride"...still do!)

Nothing wrong with Christopher Cross. His second album still rates high on my list. And Michael Omartian is an amazing producer. Guilty pleasure, I guess.

I was thinking Billy Joel too, but more along the lines of "Big Shot". Not only rocking music, but the lyrics are pretty vicious.

zlh: Different subject--I finally got Queen Live at the Bowl...Hot Space Tour...I like it...the Hot Space stuff fits in nicely with the Flash tunes...maybe I'll be a convert to the whole studio record...yeah sure.

Yeah, that's a good set. The live version of "Staying Power" from that show absolutely rips. I still like the studio version too, but for different reasons (the horns, mainly). The live version rocks it up quite a bit though and is very cool. John Deacon plays 2nd guitar on a Telecaster. I love Freddie's intro imploring the crowd to just chill about freaking out over the dance vibe of many of the new songs and whether or not Queen had lost their ability to "rock". "People get so excited over these things! It's only a bloody record...."

And love or hate the album, that '82 tour was the last really good one imo. After '82 they'd take a long break and come back with the Queen-by-numbers "Works" album and their live shows became more and more about 1980 and forward with less and less of their classic 70's stuff. Still a good live band, but for me Queen's best on album and stage was 1973-1982.

As for the Hot Space album itself, it is what it is. If ya don't like funk/r&b styled music, you'll probably never like much of that one, but Queen fans like me who appreciate that genre find Hot Space to be a nice chapter in the Queen story, unlike anything else they ever did before or after. It clearly ain't for everybody though!

I have to agree with 'Mother Freedom' by Bread.
Here's the Link.

Mother Freedom is a great song. Another pretty good rocker by Bread is Let Your Love Go. I realize these rockers did not do nearly as well as the softer tracks but I always liked the blance it initally gave the albums. I wish they had done a few more rock type things.

viva,

To me, all of the Hot Space songs sound better on Live At The Bowl. It helped me to appreciate Hot Space more than I had but that said it is still my least favorite Queen album. I do love Under Pressure though.
