    So you're given the chance to show up anywhere you want with entrance music. What are you picking? It can also be multiple.

    For me I'd go with either the beginning of Eminence Front, Jump Around or Throw Your Set in the Air.

    Fugazi's Waiting Room.
    An excellent choice.

    Gorillaz, "Clint Eastwood".

    "Sharp Dressed Man" by ZZ Top. In my younger years, I used to get a friend of mine to play this on the jukebox at the local bars and text me when it started playing. I'd be smoking right outside the door and would burst in during the opening riff. Always a head-turner. That song was made to be entrance music.

    Happy birthday to the late Tom Petty. The world only lost him a couple of weeks ago, but what a loss...

    Do yourself a solid and hit play on this jam and then close your eyes and listen to the whole thing. It's perhaps the greatest cover of a mid-sixties classic by the band "Them," and written by Van Morrison. Stick with it because this song doesn't exactly go where you think it will.

    Rest in Peace, Mr. Petty, and thanks for all the great, great, timeless music.

    Saw them live back in ’88. Still the loudest show I've ever attended.

    I really like AC/DC.
    Back in Black was thier only good album, but they had a ton of great songs. Man they could rock.

    Top five AC/DC songs (card subject to change)
    Thunderstruck
    TNT
    Dirty Deeds
    Back in Black
    For Those About to Rock

    Thunderstruck and Back in Black are my two favorite AC/DC songs, but when you look at thier catalog it's hard not to want to make a bigger list.

    Back in Black was certainly their best album, but I have a certain fondness for Let There Be Rock, which I think is a fairly solid album, and while Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap has some weak spots, it also has a rawness and energy to it that elevates it to “good” status on the whole, at least for my money.

    If you've never owned an AC/DC album, then Stephen King's Maximum Overdrive soundtrack album is a nice collection of tunes to dip your toe in.

    So I started listening to Rock Talk with Mitch Lafon. My Spotify has gone really rock heavy the last two months.

    Something to try Psychotic Symphony by Son's of Apollo. I'm trying to process the record; it starts with a 10 minute song. I'm enjoying it a lot.
  • TorchsongTorchsong Posts: 2,659
    I gotta throw Highway to Hell in there among their best. Girls Got Rhythm and If You Want Blood are both great tracks.

    Tough few days for music David Cassidy passed away.
    He may not be the rock God or country legend or pop king we usually celebrate. The truth is I just loved watching Partridge Family in syndication. Plus he was a pretty good pop star. I'm not going to lie and say I'm heartbroken, but I enjoyed his work.

    I ran across an 80's mix on Spotify today. It goes without saying but

    99 Luftballons>99 Red Balloons

    R.I.P. Tommy Keene. Underappreciated by the broader music community, but a brilliant artist.

    Man I love the Marvelous 3; I've jammed out to the Hey! Album more time than I care to admit.
