“Oldies” used to signify some kind of ballroom dancing, where the last thing you’d ever hear was “Let’s Go Nuts”.
Sorry if that’s what you’re looking for, but “oldies” to me means “vintage” which means “proven” which means any time in the past 50+ years which, for some of us, means “blow the doors off”. Here’s a taste for the wild-men out there:
“Whole Lotta Love” by Led Zeppelin. There’s simply no other song that captures its era better – sex, drugs, and rock n’roll – GO FOR IT, BABY!
“Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard. If you don’t think this is among the best R&R songs EVER, we need to talk.
And then we come to Ayl Rose…scary, huh? Makes me uncomfortable too. But this is one kick-ass song! Guns n’ Roses – Sweet Child o’ Mine
Face it, the world would be a much duller (and quieter) place without guitars and skinny, drugged-up guys screaming into a mic. Let me know if you agree (or not).
