I am a metal head too. I listen to all forms of metal (current to old, death to symphonic). Luckily I haven't been beaten to a pulp for loving old music too. Nice to meet someone who knows who Alan Parsons Project is! Your one of the first. Such an unknown gem.


The funny part is now I can't get Eye in the Sky out of my head .


The question is do you want it out of your head? I can think of much worse having stuck in my head!

Very good point. The previous thing stuck in there was Do You Really Wanna Hurt Me by Culture Club (don't fall asleep listening to an 80s rock/pop cd set infomercial...trust me). I'll take APP any day .

The last song stuck in my head was sadly Carmalldansen. Oh god I wanted to kill myself. I would like having The Games People Play in my head. I think that is my favorite APP song.

My favorite was always Don't Answer Me. Something about the song just hit home for me.

Either way, they have one of the most unique names I have seen of a band!

Agreed. They pretty much led the way for bands like the Joe Perry Project and Paul Raymond Project. It became a sort of go to name after APP started it but it's APP who is remembered most by that generation.

I haven't even heard of those last two. Are they any good? Also, do you have any good suggestions of music for me? Always open for new stuff!

Both are actually very good but neither was around long enough to make an impact. The Joe Perry Project was Joe Perry's band after Aerosmith split the first time. They actually had a pretty decent sound. The Paul Raymond Project was started by Paul Raymond of UFO and MSG (Michael Schenker Group, two of my fave bands of the 70s and 80s). Paul also started a band called Waysted with Pete Way (also formerly of UFO). I fell in love with them the first time I heard them. You may be able to try out some of their music on youtube.

As for other bands...

Uriah Heep (late 60s/early 70s to current)
Paul Revere and the Raiders (1960s to current, now known as Paul Revere's Raiders after Paul's death a few months back)
Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart (who wrote most of what the Monkees sang)
Detective (with Michael DesBarres on vocals, who is best known as Murdock, MacGyver's archenemy on tv)
Badfinger (like Detective, they were on Led Zeppelin's Swansong Label)
Anything and everything by Glenn Hughes (Trapeze, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Phenomena, Hughes-Thrall, Black County Communion, etc)
Rainbow (from the Dio stuff to the Doogie White stuff)
Samson (Early Bruce Dickenson and Nicky Moore especially)
10CC (Just a great band)
America (Deep, deep lyrics)
The Association (see America above for reason)
BBM (Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce of Cream with Gary Moore)
Anything and everything Gary Moore (especially his Thin Lizzy and solo blues stuff)
Badlands (and anything else by John West and Ray Gillen. John West the rocker from Artension and Royal Hunt not the pop John West)
Lynch Mob (George Lynch of Dokken. The earlier the bettter)
(David Gates and) Bread (bad name, good band)
Buffalo Springfield (Stephen Stills of CSNY)
Dusty Springfield (my favorite female vocalist of the 60s/70s)
Lesley Gore (my favorite female vocalist of all time)
Lana Lane (underrated and amazing in a fantasy sound sort of way)
Saraya (Sandy Saraya was a rock vocal goddess)

Those are the ones I can think of right off the top of my head. There are a lot more I'm forgetting but I hope I remember later .

Hell of a list! I need to look into that over the weekend. Dead tired today. University is kicking my ass from USA to China and back. Thanks for the list! Can I find most of these on youtube?

Some of the songs I adore (Glass Tigers: Thin Red Line album is so hard to find on YouTube).

You should be able to find some songs by most of them on youtube. I looooove watching a lot of them there myself these days. I can verify about 90-95% of that list has some songs there . The rest probably does too. Thanks for reminding me of Glass Tiger. I used to loooove them . Now, I have to go look for some of their music tonight .

I own a lot of the albums I mentioned. Well my dad does.. my sister doesn't like the music though. So I will probably take those. We even have stuff like Roxette, Queen, Prince, Journey, Kansas, Boston, Men Without Hats and all the other great stuff.

Also, once again, your the first person outside my family who has known Glass Tiger! You listened to a lot of good sh*t!

Thankee, you do as well. So far you've mentioned all bands I love to listen to ... even Men Without Hats! I still have the Rhythm of Youth and Pop Goes the World vinyl in my collection. All I was ever able to find by Glass Tiger was The Thin Red Line and Diamond Sun but I love both albums.

A few acts I forgot to mention earlier came to mind too. The Hollies, John Norum (of Europe, a very underrated guitarist), T-Rex (and solo Marc Bolan), Tommy Bolin (no relation) and Doro Pesch (the Queen of early metal and lead vocalist of Warlock).

I think my favorite Men Without Hats is Safety Dance. Reminds me of the Maifest I went to in Germany. Dancing around the May pole and drinking all day long. Too fun!

I sure have homework now though... Too many bands... musical overload imminent!
