Catchy and surprisingly heavy pomp rock.

Eliminate the right, eliminate the wrong, eliminate the weak, eliminate the strong.

5150 is easily Van Halens best album!
Dire Straits are in a way my fave band and I think MK is an unbelievable and unique guitarist. Maybe bc he's PhD MK. Think he lectured at Glasgow conservatorium. He plays Strat like a classical guitar with all 10 fingers.Tunnel of love is one of my faves, and in a way my fave. Going Home is incredible. it's like the music of light and water, the Sun and ocean put together. But overall they're just not as musical as me.

5150 closely followed by 1984.

Great songs, but I always prefered Leave a light on
also '89.

I don't know why, but the Yes song reminds me of I want to know what love is by Foreigner. I guess it's not classic rock, but no one mentioned it, having so much Foreigner around. Pretty amazing no With or Without you with so much U2 around. Has anyone mentioned the boss?

Journey - Don't Stop Believin
U2 - New Years Day
Yes - Owner of a Lonely Heart
The Stone Roses - I Am the Resurrection
Talking Heads - Once In a Lifetime

The first one's a bit overplayed, but you really can't go wrong with any of these. The comment above me mentions the Yes song. Great stuff.
There's a thread trying to define classic rock just bellow, but i couldn't bother.
Talking heads have manya greats.

I didn't hear it until the late '80s, but once I did, it was hard to forget. I don't usually like the sound of sax, but I love it in this song. Watching the video, I am also impressed that Lou Gramm sounds so at one with the lyrics as he sings them. Like a good actor, he isn't really acting: he appears to be feeling the emotions behind what he sings.

Foreigner - "Dirty White Boy"
Reminds me of someone I knew and so the song is meaningful to me. Nicely energetic guitar and drum beat intro. I usually prefer the sound of simple rhythm guitar to flashy solo guitar, so this is a good song for rhythm guitar fans such as myself.

Joan Jett & The Blackhearts - "I Love Rock 'n Roll" (Cover)
A catchy song with a pleasant gritty sound.

And again...

Joan Jett & The Blackhearts - "Crimson & Clover" (Cover)
I like it better than the original. Also, this is the video that made me realize I feel Joan Jett is pretty damn hot!
I love rnr is the last album i bought. I didnt hear Crimson and clover since then so i had no idea it's her. And yes, she's very hot. Lorie, Cher and Sheena Easton among the most beautiful singers.

My favorite Queen's song from the 80's:
Under Pressure
Who wants to live forever when love must die...
One Vision
I Want It All
The Miracle...

Innuendo album is also the miracle (especially "The Show Must Go On" that makes me cry every time ) but but those are from 90's.

That and The Joker.

Even though I hate the hamburger decade, it probably has most good songs. Quantity all over, **** quality! It was 60s that started it, it grew in 70s and culminated in 80s.
