    Two of my favorites.
    I jammed FYLT instrumentally once with a buddy on drums and it felt neat. Played SGMAD live in a few different bands, and always loved it.

    There's probably at least 15-20 six pack tunes that should be c classic rock radio staples, if not more.

    My local classic rock station plays the same 3 or 4 songs that I'm sure you can guess. It's why I mostly listen to sports talk

    Two songs that FM radio FAILED:

    In a simple rhyme by VH

    Tonight by Ozzy

    Both songs should have been HUGE.

    Both songs were extremely well crafted, loaded with clever melody & hooks.

    Both songs had a breezy commercial appeal, but still retained the rock & roll spirit.

    Both songs featured tasty guitar heroics with Edward & Randy.

    Here's another one that should have gotten more airplay …

    Totally agree! On the Ozzy/Randy front, I've really been loving SATO as well. Great riff & amazing RR guitar work throughout

    Another VH deep track I've always really dug is Little Dreamer.

    I absolutely love Little Dreamer!
    Very cool song , and I'm impressed by the vibe and dynamics. Eddie's solo and fills are spectacular, and the way he fades in on the F chord at the very end is neat.

    Little Dreamer might be my least favorite song on my favorite album of all-time. It is a killer tune, but for me, it is simply the shortest giant on a record of behemoths.

    Has anybody else ever noticed how similar the chord progression of Little Dreamer is to that of Hotel California?

    I guess it's a similar key, but the chords in HC are more complex, plus he used a capo.

    LD is more "riffy", but it's a cool idea.

    This one doesn't get enough love around here. Ed's solo is incendiary ...
