Week 16: Aerosmith – Dream On

It’s funny, I don’t actually know how many times I heard this track before realizing it was Aerosmith. I guess I’d blame being young and ignorant, but it wasn’t too long ago which is a shameful fact. Either way, this is a great track by one of the most successful bands of all time, and being from their first album it’s much more raw and unpolished than their later hits.

Week 7: Meat Loaf – I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)

I wanted something appropriate seeing as today is Valentine’s Day, and immediately thought of this track which I listen to on a regular basis. It has a lot of great qualities, and I definitely consider it one of the greatest tracks ever recorded.

I can readily admit–as one might have noticed–that I’m a sucker for long bombastic tracks that keeps building up as it progresses.
