Green Day's longest song from the album American Idiot
Can't believe this one hasn't been submitted yet.
From Dylan's "Desire" album, this is the only of Dylan's 11-minute-plus songs that is in the middle of the album rather than the end. It's also one of the few Dylan songs that I absolutely can't stand. I love Dylan, but something about "Joey" just irks me.
I love this cover! While the coda is less than the original Uriah Heep version, but this cover became playing repeatedly and would be a radio hit for me. The first time ever I hear this song was several years ago where I don't know this song and originally would be Deep Purple song titled "Looking for Love" (mention in the lyrics of this song). But, when I hear the original Uriah Heep song for the first time on radio, they helping me from cute girls with their epic outro (first playing at 6:35). When I read article about the song "July Morning" in Wikipedia, Pell covered this song in 2000 (several years before the golden year for the progressive metal maestro named Tool). And later, when I adding Pell version of this song into my playlist and later I hear this song for the first time on my mobile, it would be this and not Deep Purple song. For my music science about Pell's own band, Johnny Gioeli previously known as a lead vocalist on Hardline's song that I still save in my playlist titled "Can't Find My Way". Both the bands Hardline and Pell's band, Gioeli still singing on these bands. Now, Pell's "July Morning" was a radio hit and still playing again and again for progressive rock format of my music program until I'm boring with this song. But I'm still love with this cover!
The seventh and final track off of "Mysterious Traveller" LP in 1974.
From the clssic 1975 album, "Born To Run". Considered one of Springsteen's greatest songs, it is an epic tale of gang violence. It's been used towards the end of Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band's concerts.
"Junkyard Dog (Tears On Stone)," Winger
