I am an unabashed fan of classic rock and AOR. So here are ten tracks, not necessarily my ten favourite tracks, but ones that, if I walked into a pub and heard them playing, I’d say “yeah, alright...”
- AC/DC – Hell’s Bells
- Belinda Carlisle – Lay Down Your Arms
- Big Country – Wonderland
- Boston – More than a Feeling
- Dire Straits – Single Handed Sailor
- Don Henley – Boys of Summer
- Heart – Crazy on You
- Mountain – Nantucket Sleighride
- Pearl Jam – Alive
- Tom Petty/Stevie Nicks – Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around
If you go in any rock pub, you’ll find a band cranking out covers of Bad Company, AC/DC and Van Halen, and the critically preferred wank will be nowhere to be heard.
