    Blondie-Heart of glass
    Pat Benatar-Love is a battlefield (I like Heartbreaker even more, but that one is Dino to the core)
    Divinlys-I touch myself

    Total Eclipse of the Heart

    I recently heard the long version of this tune while walking through a store and just got completely caught up in it. I'd forgotten about the depth of the lyrics and the deeply emotional delivery of the vocals. It took me on a seven minute head trip.

    These 9:
    Dire Straits - Once Upon A Time In The West    
    Eagles - Hotel California  
    The Church - Under The Milkyway    
    Tears For Fears - Head Over Heels  
    REM - Losing My Religion    
    Berlin - You Don´t Know    
    Garbage - Happy When It Rains  
    Radiohead - Street Spirit 
    SOM - Driven Like Snow    

    Don´t know if that last one actually was a chart hit. In a perfect world it would have been.

    I think sometimes if you try to play too technically, you lose something in the music - like you're playing for another guitar player. I like to play for people. The more sophisticated and mature guitarists become, the more they go with the feel.

    Free had some great songs too, Wishing Well is my favorite though that song didn't do much over here.

    Wichita Lineman - the only song I have ever heard done by everyone with not a bad verion to be heard.  My current favorite version is the live instrumental version by Kool and the Gang.  This version just cooks.

    Yes, yes, yes.  The thing is, every time I hear a Free song I think it's a Bad Company song.  I'm not well educated.  :036:
