I’m a fairly young guy (although I consider myself a child of the 80’s). But from time to I get a bit nostalgic. The other day I was riding as the passenger in a short drive and listening to the radio. On came the classic Poison track “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” and it got me thinking about the great so-called monster ballads of the 1980s.
In that decade, “hair bands” ruled the charts with their often hard rock style but every once in a while they took the risk to show their tender side. Here are just a few examples of some of the ones that really rocked.
The aforementioned “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” by Poison
“I’ll Be There For You” by Bon Jovi
“Faithfully” by Journey
“Here I Go Again” by Whitesnake
“Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns N’ Roses
Well, hopefully you enjoyed this trip down memory lane with me.
