Dedicated to my dear Colombian friend Steffi
(Hope you don't mind using your photo as background image on the songlist - it looks real cool though :)
fifty easy digestible appetizers for the romantic cuddle evening...
50 bluesrock songs: '...when the road gets rough I pick up my guitar and play...as long as I got Rock'n'Roll I'm forever young!' Cinderella - One for Rock'n'Roll (#15)
There is a striking resemblence and that applies not only to the face but the voice too:
Hugo Valenti and Steve Perry or their bands 'Valentine' and 'Journey'. It's a rare combination indeed but that's still not all: Hugo has a similar talent for composing soulful yet energetic ballads as Steve does - enjoy two extraordinary voices...and of course the others are big time too - check it out!
I very well remember when I bought the first Fates Warning record, it was the '91 album 'Parallels' and it was in a little record shop in Bern. I had a visit from an Englishman who was running a law office in Portland, he came over to Europe to recover a bit from our 'beloved empire' in the west...so we were in this cute litte shop and he was listening to grunge stuff as Nirvana and finially bought some records. About the stuff I was listening to he had no clue and was somewhat irritated too :D
Besides 'Parallels' I bought the debut album of 'Zeno' and both still belong to my all time favourites!
The danish band 'Fate' (founded by an ex guitarist of 'Mercyful Fate'...) is the discovery of this mixtape, delivering its slogan with the great song 'Can't stand losing you - I couldn't live without you' - 80sRock forever!
Metal VII & Metal VIII epics: these mixt@pes are the strongest antidepressants you can get on this plane - however on one end awaits you heaven and on the other hell...check it out and loose sides!
Folk II mixt@pe is ready now - it's a mixture of different styles: flowerpower, natives, acoustics and other ballads rather hard to assign
50 bluesrockers from the very roots of guitar blues like Muddy Waters to contemporary performers like Gary Clark Jr.
50 classic rock hymns from the early age of rock music - the late 60s and the 70s
The decade of hard'n'heavy stands for a great time with great music - that mixtape presents you some of the best rock-anthems!
80sRock II is a ZZ-Top Special: this band has shaped the 80s like hardly any other band - they kind of invented the bluesrock anew and came up with a unique blend that can be called 'synthiebluesrockpop' - I remember freaking out regurarly while listening to their songs...they had some brilliant ones you couldn't resist jigging around with air guitar! And they brought out the best music video of the decade - remember that pimped-out chrome flashing red oldtimer with yellow Z at the sides? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ae829mFAGGE
(yeah he was really FAGGED afterwards :))
Folks, it was hightime to break the silence for a while! Enjoy some faster classic Metal stuff - don't bang your head off completely, wait for a while, there's more to come...
50 classical ballads from barock to romantic - spoken in musical epochs - you will recognice many famous melodies from great composers such as Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven, Bach, Brahms and many more
I love the balladic rhythm of reggae music, it turns almost every song into a ballad - so shut down babylon for a few hours and dream of a better world...
