Metal Up Yer Universe, Pt. 3
Mike has come through! He sent me a list of 20 tracks (OK, not 15 but whatever) that he says he would probably want to die without… good enough for me. Check it (complete with Mike Comments):
Black Sabbath – Zero The Hero
Iron Maiden – Phantom Of The Opera
Judas Priest – The Green Manalishi
Deep Purple – Knocking At Your Back Door
—Mike: “Fuck, this is hard”
Budgie – In The Grip Of The Tyrefitter’s Hand
KISS – Black Diamond
—Mike: ” See, this is where I get into trouble. I could easily say… ALL the KISS albums! Oh, and I think I’d have to pick Black Diamond, the version from KISS Alive.”
Faith No More – Land Of Sunshine
Def Leppard – Too Late For love
Rush – Vital Signs
KISS – Got To Choose
Black Sabbath – Spiral Architect
Van Halen – I’ll Wait
Savatage – Gutter Ballet
Alice Cooper – Dwight Fry
Judas Priest – Some Heads Are Gonna Roll
KISS – I’m A Legend Tonight
AC/DC – Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
Quiet Riot – Slick Black Cadillac
Iron Maiden – Where Eagles Dare
—Mike: “And then you get to this point. Last song. What do you pick? What have I excluded? What means more to me than other things?
Rainbow – Stargazer
—Mike: “There! I feel dirty for excluding so many, but I did it!
Indeed you did, Mike! Well done! I knew we’d get there eventually. Interesting repetition of acts in his list. Iron Maiden (2), Judas Priest (2), KISS (3), Black Sabbath (2). Of 20 songs, 9 are duplicate bands! I think we can see who Mike’s Big Favourite Bands are, at least a little since he could probably sent 200 songs as easily as 20. Savatage, wow. That takes me back. And Def Leppard? Man, I wouldn’t have thought of them. Interesting!
Thanks, Mike, for your contributions to this project!
