    Question Never Say Die - Street Machine

    I was just listening to Never Say Die on Street Machine and I know, I know, I know I've heard this song, or its melody, somewhere else. I assume it's on another Hagar recording somewhere, but I can't place it.

    Can anybody help me out?

    I know "Never Say Die". It's an awesome tune, I'd pretty much forgotten about. Sammy should bring it back. I think it would be great live.

    But I don't remember any similarities.

    I think it's the cadence of the melody....it is similar to something but I can't place my finger either.

    A lot of Sammy's capital stuff is him trying out (and/or copping the style, melodies) of bands he looked up to.

    Yup. They forced him to release 2 records every year in his contract! Can you imagine that in this day and age. Crazy times!

    Thanks for the replies. I'm guessing I had some type of dubbed cassette of a greatest hits compilation or something that is long gone out of my possession that had Never Say Die on it.

    I recently subscribed to Spotify, so I'm listening to a lot of Sammy's early albums that I don't own. I mainly own the compilations (very best of, live, etc) for his pre-Halen days. Thus, I'm hearing some songs again for the first time in a very, very long time.

    I really like the song Never Say Die.

    I would say the best two records of that era would be street machine and danger zone.

    I wish he would go back and buy the rights back to his own music so they stop re-re-re-releasing compilations.

    It’s been a grower on me through the years, but now I love it. It was Sammy first really getting serious with his lyrics too. It’s one of the few Sammy songs to have a saxophone too. I can’t sense any simialarities with other songs though.
    What is understood need not be discussed

    "Dont disturb my paradise. I've asked you once. I've asked you nice" - "SERIOUS JU JU"

    "I am in a blissful state. Dont bug me!!!" - Richard Dreyfuss "The Goodbye girl" 1977
