    Paul McCartney - Fuh You

    Well, lyrics sites are notorious for getting lyrics wrong. It sounds like he says "want it" to me, but even ignoring that, I'm really not sure how you can tell the difference between "wanna" and "wannit". I've found this site to be the most accurate and revealing. In it he explicitly says...

    Paul McCartney - Fuh You

    Some heavy metal favorites from the hard rocking Beatles: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onHw7A35-EI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcBpOFW_Fkg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3pgBSpYTKg

    Hear Steve Perry’s Second ‘Traces’ Single, ‘No More Cryin’’

    It's true, he does sound a bit different. I'm sure his range is less (just based on how they say singers age - I have no personal experience because I can't sing a lick!) It sounds good though. I've always been a sucker for Steve Perry.

    Paul McCartney - Fuh You

    Except that the context is different - bubblegum pop rock songs were fresh and new back then, now they are stale at about 60 years old.

    Paul McCartney - Fuh You

    A little misleading, since the video explicitly says "I just want it fuh you". Anyway, lame song.

    Queen (Official Thread)

    I love Queen. I remember when A Day At The Races came out with that gatefold photo inside of Freddy. My brother and I kind of looked at each other..... "Do you think he's..... ***??" "...... NAAAAHHHHH!" He's a rock star. Oh how naive we were.

    Rate The Song Above You Part III

    Sure, I was just adding a different video of the same song, which I thinks adds another perspective to it. My opinion on the song doesn't really matter, I was just adding another dimension for someone else to consider in a different context, not making any rules or anything.

    Rate The Song Above You Part III

    Sorry to interject, but I'm not sure if songs should be rated based on if you were hearing it for the first time today, or in context with history and its origin. I think context is important.

    Rate The Song Above You Part III

    I'm always on the lookout for melodic metal. The problem is when you sing like that (trying to make it sound epic) and the song isn't awesome enough to be a classic, it can end up sounding pretentious. Overall good sound. 6/10

    Controversial or unpopular opinions

    I respect Kiss due to their (Simmons/Stanley) work ethic and care for the customer (quality live show). I even like some of their music as a guilty pleasure (although Hard Luck Woman is a legit good song that would have been a hit for someone like Rod Stewart.) But otherwise, no they're not...

    Controversial or unpopular opinions

    Yeah. If I had a metal band, I might call it "Load" or something, but it wouldn't have anything girly, or even an umlaut for that matter.

    Controversial or unpopular opinions

    I'd agree with that. I do think there's an awful lot of metal out there, but a lot of it isn't particularly popular or accessible. I guess metalheads like it just that way. Personally I think if there was more melodic metal, more people would get into it. For example I discovered Volbeat...

    Controversial or unpopular opinions

    OK maybe this is controversial, but even though I don't like most glam/hair bands, I do like Cinderella. I think their problem is that they placed themselves in the hair band genre themselves with their first album. Or maybe their manager did. But really they're more in the Aerosmith mode...

    Controversial or unpopular opinions

    If you don't like the Beatles, that's one thing. If you don't get how important they were and what good musicians they were, that's a different thing. The former is strictly opinion and taste, and you can't be blamed for that. The latter just requires more education about music history etc...

    Ace Frehley - Rockin' With The Boys (Official Audio)

    Juvenile lyrics, but I kind of like his voice. He should do more. He also looks kind of badass, he should take some acting lessons and get into some new crime TV show like Sopranos or Breaking Bad.
