1978 A Time to Fly

Postby Abitaman » Fri May 22, 2020 6:13 am

1978 Another good year for music.

1. The Cars - The Cars While I am a huge Styx fan, this was my favorite album of the year, a very fun listen

2. Styx - Pieces of Eight Another great album by the band

3. Blondie - Parallel Lines Teenage hormones really like Blondie and so did I

4. Toto - Toto Really liked the music, wasn’t crazy about the singers at the time, but still good

5. Journey- Infinity Very impressive vocals and guitar, a match for each other. Songs showed a big improvement.

6. Van Halen - Van Halen The singer was ok, the background singer knocked my socks off and the guitarist blew me away

7. Rainbow - Long Live Rock-n-Roll A very friendly D&D album

8. REO Speedwagon - You Can Tune A Piano But You Can’t Tuna Fish An album that matches the feel of their live album

9. Boston - Don’t Look Back In my top 10, Should have been named Boston the remake

10. Joe Walsh - But Seriously Folks Joe before he started sounding stoned all the time.


LIVE
1. Sammy Hagar - All Night Long Raw and full of fire, loved it.

2. Kansas - Two For The Show Just the opposite, but just as good

GREATEST HITS/BEST OF
1. Wings - Wings’ Greatest

Biggest Disappointment/ Over Hyped
1. Boston - Don’t Look Back This cd was a huge disappointment in terms of something new. Same set up as last album, songs sound just different just enough to get by to not be called a remake, but it is.

SONGS (singles and album cuts)
1. Blue Collar Man – Styx Love the bass line on this song.
2. Just What I Needed - The Cars
3. Pieces Of Eight – Styx Love the Piano on this song
4. Time For Me To Fly- REO
5. My Life - Billy Joel
6. Renegade - Styx
7. Big Shot - Billy Joel
8. My Best Friend’s Girl - The Cars
9. Queen Of Spades - Styx
10. Roll With The Changes - REO
11. Lights - Journey
12. Rainbow Eyes – Rainbow Used this song for a D&D campaign.
13. Life’s Been Good - Joe Walsh
14. One Way Or Another - Blondie
15. Don’t Look Back - Boston
16. Hold The Line - Toto
17. Wheel in the Sky - Journey
18. Dog and Butterfly - Heart
19. Lady of the Lake – Rainbow Another song I used for a D&D outing.
20. I’m Okay- Styx And I was...

Best of your list right there, especially the live albums ("This planet's on fire! BURN IN HELL!") and Rainbow!

Just about anything Ronnie James Dio sang on sounded good. He had a voice that in most cases lift an ok song to good or great.

A lot of Hagar's early stuff was hit or miss when it came to writing, but he could being a energy to a song.

Dio was the best rock singer ever :!:

His lyrics are nowhere near Rush/BÖC, but as far as good crotch-kick American hard rock with shredding lead guitar and killer vocals go, Sam's pre-VH albums are all winners, with the exception of his very first one, 9 on a 10 Scale. That one feels way too light on the rock-o-meter.

You beat me to the post. Just got done reading while I was on break at work.
Was not in agreement with all their choices, but they were spot on for about 2/3 of the albums.
