Just wondering what album or song made you become a big fan of music, if you are one. A title that made you want to play an instrument or make music your life. For me it was Van Halen's, 'Women and Children First'. I heard "Everybody Wants Some" at 12 years old and I've been broke ever since. :lol:

I am a huge fan of music, and I got pretty good taste, but the first thing that got me into music was actually a pretty bad album and a pretty bad song. The album was 18 til I die with the song The only thing that looks good on me is you, by Bryan Adams, I was a fan of him all through middle school, and then I grew up.

Wait a second, I thought it was his first album? I guess you are counting Garage Days revisited.

Mine has to be the album Ride the Lightning, title: Fade to Black

They usally play the music so loud you can't hear the words, thats usually because they're sing abot defiling your grandmother or other relative. Some of C&W is pretty sappy, but at least you can understand it.

I think so too Nabo. I'm not a great fan of modern country music. I do like Dwight Yokum and Alan Jackson though. Most here would think that Merle Haggard would be corn, but if you have a decent sound system and enjoy hearing different instruments shared unselfeshly, sprinkled with a little country, jazz and blues then Merle Haggard and The Strangers will not disappoint.

While I don't knock what is popular today, I can't listen to it. I'm old school and like to be moved by the lyrics and the music.

I prefur classic country of the 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s. I also like "Soul" of the 50s and 60s along with what is known as "Rock A Billy".

Go and read some of Bruce Dickinson's lyrics.

The body bags and little rags of children torn in two
And the jellied brains of those who remain to put the finger right on you
As the madmen play on words and make us all dance to their song
To the tune of starving millions, to make a better kind of gun.

The killer's breed or the Demon's seed,
The glamour, the fortune, the pain,
Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain
Don't you pray for my soul anymore.

I agree about modern country. Too...I don't know, but it's too something. Maybe too corporate/slick/glitzy, like a parody of itself. Can't bear to hear it. Ever hear what the Dixie Chicks did to Fleetwood Mac's Landslide? Criminal.

Give me Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Patsy Cline, Lynn Anderson, Charlie Pride...and I do like Clint Black, BTW.

What you said about wanting your music to move you is spot-on too. Even music you want to dance to should elicit something from inside you, an emotional response.

Blue Ridge Rangers - John Fogerty. If you liked CCR, just think about Fogerty cutting loose with that electric guitar doing the songs of the 30s like Jimmy Rogers califorina Blues. He will make you shake your head and say...DAMN! that's the way it was supposed to sound.

Folk lyrics ARE excellent. No argument there. A different animal though. Folk tends to lend itself more to real life situations, relationships, politics, etc.

Metal leans more towards storytelling and fantasy. Both are equally good IMHO.

Google Dream Theater's lyrics for their album Scenes From A Memory or Queensryche's Operation: Mindcrime. Both could be made into movies!

I see your point clearly, and I respect your opinion and your taste. I just can't get past the musical style to really appreciate the lyrical value the way you do; kind of like when I had a group of friends that were into gothic rock - no way I can penetrate what I consider to be the unattractive qualities of that music to be able to see anything in it.

That obviously doesn't change the music's inherent value, just that I'm not able to appreciate it.

The curse it lives on in their eyes
The mariner wished he'd die
Along with the sea creatures
But they lived on, so did he.

and by the light of the moon
He prays for their beauty not doom
With heart he blesses them
God's creatures all of them too.

The albatross falls from his neck
Sinks down like lead into the sea
Then down in falls comes the rain.

She came to me with a serpent's kiss,
As the Eye of the Sun rose on her lips,
Moonlight catches silver tears I cry,
So we lay in a black embrace,
And the Seed is sown in a holy place
And I watched, and I waited for the Dawn.

The light of the Blind - you'll see,
The venom that tears my spine,
The Eyes of the Nile are opening - you'll see.

Bind all of us together,
Ablaze with Hope and Free,
No storm or heavy weather
Will rock the boat you'll see.
The time has come to close your eyes
And still the wind and rain,
For the one who will be King
Is the Watcher in the Ring.
It is You.

Mama they try and break me
The window burns to light the way back home
A light that warms no matter where they've gone
They're off to find the hero of the day
But what if they should fall by someone's wicked way
Still the window burns
Time so slowly turns
And someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames
Can't you hear your names?
Can't you hear your babies crying?

**Skips some parts**

But now the dreams and waking screams
That everlast the night
So build a wall
Behind it crawl
And hide until it's light
Can't you hear your babies crying now?

Tough question, and I can't narrow it down to just one song or album. But I really remember being influenced early on by:

Black Sabbath - Iron Man; a buddy of mine had an 8-track of the album with this song, and we'd listen to it over and over again, when I was about 12 or so.

Twisted Sister - You Can't Stop Rock and Roll; same friend had the vinyl single of this song which he gave to me, and the cassette of the album Stay Hungry. We spent a lot of time listening to this stuff.

And the first time I remember going to the store and asking my mom to buy music for me, I came away with:

AC/DC - Who Made Who

Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind

Van Halen - 5150

all three are still favorites to this day.

And then, somehow, someway, somebody introduced me to Motley Crue. The rest is history.... :)

It’s so bad, goin’ to school
So far from me and the dirty things that we do

I’m the king of the night time world
And you’re my headlight queen
I’m the king of the night time world
Come live your secret dream

It’s so fine, lovin’ with ease
Far from the house and the family fights
It’s so fine, bein’ with you
Bein’ with me makes everything alright

I’m the king of the night time world
And you’re my headlight queen
I’m the king of the night time world
Come live your secret dream, alright

It’s so sad, you’re not content
Far from the music and the neon glow
Ain’t you glad we got the time
Far from our folks, they’ll never ever know

And you’re my headlight queen
I’m the king of the night time world
Come live your secret dream

You like the way the wheels roll
You like my seven inch leather heels
And goin’ to all of the shows, but
Do you love me, do you love me
Do you love me, really love me

You like the credit cards and private planes
Money can really take you far
You like the hotels and fancy clothes
And the sound of electric guitars, but

Do you love me, do you love me
Do you love me, I mean like do you
Really love me

You really like rock ’n’ roll
All of the fame and the masquerade
You like the concerts and studios
And all the money, honey, that I make, but

Do you love me, do you love me
Do you love me, really love me

Your backstage pass and black sunglasses
Make you look just like a queen
Even the fans, they know your face
From all of the magazines, but

Do you love me (do you love me)
Do you love me (do you love me)
Do you love me (do you love me)
Really love me (really love me)
I wanna know

:rocker: :rocker: :rocker:

You’ll take my life but I’ll take yours too
You’ll fire your musket but I’ll run you through
So when your waiting for the next attack
You’d better stand there’s no turning back

The bugle sounds as the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of arcrid smoke and horses breath
As you plunge into a certain death

The horse he sweats with fear we break to run
The mighty roar of the russian guns
And as we race towards the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall

We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And the russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away
We won’t live to fight another day

We get so close near enough to fight
When a russian gets me in his sights
He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow
A burst of rounds take my horse below

And as I lay there gazing at the sky
My body’s numb and my throat is dry
And as I lay forgotten and alone
Without a tear I draw my parting groan

Here's one by the Hag.

1973 - "Life Long Love Affair With Trains". All songs on this album have something to do with trains. Very good album!

She's a railroad lady
Just a little bit shady
Spendin' her days on the trains
She's a semi-good looker
But the fast rails they took 'er
Now she's tryin', just tryin' to get home again

South Station in Boston to the freightyards of Austin
From the Florida sunshine to the New Orleans rain
Now that the railpacks
Has taken the best tracks
She's tryin', just tryin' to get home again

She's a railroad lady
Just a little bit shady
Spendin' her life on a train
Once a pullman car traveller
Now the brakeman won't have 'er
She's tryin', just tryin' to get home again
