    Default Another Guest DJ Thread ...

    If you could play 10 of your favorite songs on the radio as a guest DJ, what would you choose? Since this is in Main, you can choose ONE Van Halen song. Don't be "that guy" who hijacks the thread. That's my move ...

    (1) I'm The One - VH
    (2) Ten Years Gone - Led Zeppelin
    (3) No More No More - Aerosmith
    (4) Rebel Rebel - David Bowie
    (5) Neon Knights - Black Sabbath
    (6) Hitch A Ride - Boston
    (7) Mona Lisa And Mad Hatters - Elton John
    (8) Monkey Man - Rolling Stones
    (9) Have A Drink On Me - AC/DC
    (10) The Last Resort - Eagles
    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you"

    "Be careful what you wish for because you just might lose what you already have"

    "Women and Children First ... The REAL Van Halen III"

    Most of these I've been listening to lately.

    Nice call on the Elton tune. I haven't heard it in awhile.

    I remember watching Led Zepagain at the local Swap Meet several years ago. They were playing For Your Life. I rarely listen to Presence, so I hadn't heard this song in forever. As soon as they played the part starting at 2:32, a little light bulb went off in my little brain ...



    I immediately knew where I'd heard that riff ...



    The Mighty Led Zeppelin was tired of stealing from the blues players of the past, so they decided to steal from a grunge band from the future.

    Not just non-singles/rarities/deep cuts, but songs I never hear on rock radio in Pittsburgh in general:

    1. Van Halen: Blood and Fire
    2. Led Zeppelin: Bring It on Home
    3. Motley Crue: Bastard
    4. Poison: Let Me Go to the Show
    5. Whitesnake: Crying in the Rain
    6. Ratt: Nobody Rides for Free
    7. Def Leppard: High 'N' Dry (Saturday Night)
    8. Guns N' Roses: It's So Easy
    9. Kiss: All Hell's Breakin' Loose
    10. Rush: Dreamline

    I'd also like to throw in a song some of you had mentioned within the past year in the Non-VH Music thread, Dweezil Zappa's ode to VH with a little Gar in the background vox: "Gotta Get to You." That is honestly one of the coolest fucking songs I've ever heard in my life. I hate to use the word "swagger," but it's got it to a "T." And the chorus--shit, there's like 10 super-catchy bridges and 10 super-catchy choruses in that song.

    On a side note, for non-hard rock stations, I'd spin Prince And The Revolution's "Baby I'm a Star."

    ideally, I'd like to do 10 VH related tunes and 10 tunes that I love and no one seems to know about.

    stuff like Midnight Moonlight by The Firm just blows me away and I've never heard it mentioned by anyone at any time....I'd play stuff like that and The Oaf by Big Wreck, which is a great song that I don't think anyone who doesn't live in Canada has ever heard.

    for the VH stuff, I'd just do some stuff that is VH related or stuff that I feel is incredibly under rated...Mine All Mine, The Seventh Seal, The Fullbug...GGB...
