90's Hairband Ballads

Continuing Dylan's brilliant theme for the week...

This was the quintissental junior high hairband ballad for me. All others were measured against this one. The girl on the cover still shows up in my dreams sometimes.

Fly to the Angels - Slaughter

Heavens awaits your heart
And flowers bloom in your name

After junior high, when i didn't see a certain person very often anymore, this was my "walking in the rain, thinking of someone far away" song. Ya, pathetic.

I Remember You - Skid Row

Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
Washed away a dream of you
But nothing else could ever take you away
'Cause you'll always be my dream come true
Oh my darling, I love you

I was lucky enough to find a tape of Tesla's Five Man Acoustic Jam live album on the side of the road (surely it was an accident that this found it's way there, couldn't have been flung from a moving vehicle). It's still a classic album.

Love Song - Tesla

So you think that it's over,
That your love has fin'lly reached the end.
Any time you call, night or day,
I'll be right there for you if you need a friend.
