I was wondering how you’re feeling I thought I saw you kneeling And holding your gut last night It looked like you were praying But I heard someone saying You had been in an awful fight You get the worst of it everytime Lashing out with no reason or rhyme To lose all this rage, […]

Solid 80s Rock / Pop. Hook laden and full of some lovely guitar histrionics, lovingly crafted to fit into that Rock / Pop mold. A perfect time capsule of 1987. I saw this performed live and the guitars were much more prominent. Note at about the 3:04 mark the graffiti that reads “Jack and Mollie” […]

Two versions. The first, a live performance in 1987. Maria McKee’s voice is always amazing, but the bass is so prominent in the live version – of course it could be that I’m listening to it through some sub-par computer speakers, but like most live performances the bass is really the glue anyway. The other […]

Live in early 1983. There is an old truism in Rock and Roll: Never name your band after a song. Or a song after your band. However, this song is a great jam tune. Always great live, although it only made it through the Dawn Patrol and Midnight Madness Tours. I used to practice this […]

No official Video, or concert video available. And other than the uber-queer graphic in this video (what the hell is that anyways?) always a nice listen. Here I am My heart in a sling Holding on to memories Wondering what might have been There you are Lost in a dream Full of life yet loneliness […]

Everyone always thinks that this is a love song. A ballad, of lost love. It is, after a fashion. Bassist Jack Blades lost his brother to a drug overdose, and hearing Jeff Watson’s instrumental, crafted this final lyrical goodbye to his brother. So it is a love song. For a lost love. As the sun […]

The 80s. Completely, unequivocally, the 80s. Totally. I’ve seen Night Ranger, and members of Night Ranger, in concert more times than I can count. This song live, even without the horns from the Tower Of Power, is a bit rougher. And that double neck Flying V Jeff Watson is sporting is pretty slick. Think of […]

From 1998’s Seven, Soul Survivor There’s a man Sits outside in front of Grazi’s cafe Dirty clothes, a bedroll and a smile He rubs his hands together Says “mister can you spare me some change? I’ve been down on my luck for a while” Yet I ‘m a soul survivor I sleep under the freeway […]

Originally appearing on the  virtually unheard reunion album, 1997’s Neverland, this live track is from the equally easily missed Rock In Japan Live 97. Penned by Jack Blades, the title itself is the hook, and signature of so many Blades’ songs: Simple, Silly, Sincere:  Forever All Over Again. If she wanted the world To be […]

From the bygone era of 1997. When I first heard this I thought that Rock And Roll was making a come back. Sadly, it wasn’t. It’s still just an insurgency. What’s not to like here? Guitars, simple, loud, angry, and fun. Thunderous drums. A steady bass. Harmony. And girls. Ain’t that America?
