    Default What songs from the Dave and Sam eras ...

    Are similar in some way/ways?

    The groove in one of my favorite tunes from 1984 ...



    Is similar to the groove in one of my favorite tunes from OU812 ...



    Also, both of those songs remind me of AC/DC songs. Back In Black for Drop Dead Legs and Rock 'N' Roll Ain't Noise Pollution for Black And Blue.

    ^^^That is always the first one that jumps to mind for me. Sucker is like Panama part II. It just goes to show that Sucker isn't a very popular song despite being closer to the Dave era format.

    It's not Dave vs. Sam but "You and Your Blues" has always sounded like "One I Want 2.0" to me.

    Sucker is still my favorite off that album.

    Another obvious one is Source Of Infection following the blueprint of HFT and I'm The One.

    Very similar grooves musically. But also one where both singers really follow right along with the groove with their deliveries. Unusual since both have such distinctly different styles of singing and writing vocal melodies.

    The revved up beat Al plays during the HOP solo he repeated in "5150" and Feeling solos.

    I agree. When I first heard the intro to the song I immediately noticed that.

    Which is probably why I've always loved Source Of Infection.

    "Dance the Night Away" and "Top of the World" have similar choruses; try singing either song's lyric over the other.
