Lyrics
When your bed’s too sweaty and your head feels funny
You’re tossin and turning cause your room’s too sunny
The upstair neighbour got some 15 kids
And if something’s goin’ down it’s sure your lids
And the sound of T-T-Tim’s big pumping bass makes you dye your hair makes you change your ways
I gotta get up I gotta get out I just found out what it’s all about

I was born to rock (born to rock)
Sworn to rock (sworn to rock)

Alright
Na na na na na
Yeah
Na na na na na
Alright
Na na na na na

That’s when you shout it out
Shout it out shout it louder
Shout it out (shout!), shout it louder

And well up and about cruisin’ down the street
Feelin’ good feelin’ neat as one with the beat
The dizziness is gone but your still a punk
Just out to have fun and about to get drunk
That’s when the sound of Harry K’s screaming guitar
Makes you wanna race in your old man’s car
The pedal to the metal and your pulse to the bop
The kind of bad habit that you just can’t drop

I was born to rock (born to rock)
Sworn to rock (sworn to rock)

Come on
Na na na na na
Rock on
Na na na na na
Uh
Na na na na na

That’s when you shout it out
Shout it out shout it louder
Shout shout shout
Shout it out shout it louder

Take this sucker!

Skid Row - I Remember You

Skid Row – I Remember You

“I Remember You” is the third and final single from Skid Row’s 1989 eponymous debut album. The power ballad was released in November 1989 and written by bandmates Rachel Bolan and Dave “the Snake” Sabo.

It reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #23 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks in early 1990. The song also charted at #36 on the UK Singles chart.

In a 2007 interview, vocalist Sebastian Bach commented, “‘I Remember You’ was the #1 prom song in the United States of America in the year 1990….You talk about making memories! Literally the whole country of America did their prom dance to ‘I Remember You’ one year, and that’s a real heavy memory to beat.

I Remember You
(Rachel Bolan, Dave Sabo)

Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
The wind would whisper and I’d think of you
And all the tears you cried — they called my name
And when you needed me I came through

Paint a picture of the days gone by
When love went blind and you would make me see
I’d stare a lifetime into your eyes
So that I knew that you were there for me
Time after time you were there for me

Remember yesterday – walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sands – I remember you
And through the sleepless nights, through every endless day
I wanna hear you say, “I remember you.”

We spent the summer with the top rolled down
Wished ever after would be like this
You said I love you babe, without a sound
I said I’d give my life for just one kiss
I’d live for your smile and die for your kiss

Remember yesterday – walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sands – I remember you
And through the sleepless nights, through every endless day
I wanna hear you say, “I remember you.”

We’ve had our share of hard times
But that’s the price we paid
And through it all we kept the promise that we made
I swear you’ll never be lonely

Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
Washed away a dream of you
But nothing else could ever take you away
‘Cause you’ll always be my dream come true
Oh my darling, I love you

Remember yesterday – walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sands – I remember you
Through the sleepless nights, through every endless day
I wanna hear you say, “I remember you.”

Remember yesterday – walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sands – I remember you.
Through all the sleepless nights, through every endless day
I wanna hear you say, “I remember, I remember you!”

Intice - Taste The Night

Intice – Taste The Night

One of the lesser known but definately among the most underrated Hair Metal bands to come out of Florida.

Formed in 1985 in Tampa it only took them a few months to develop a dedicated regional following! Intice played some great shows all over the southeastern United States opening for bands such as Steppenwolf, Foghat, Johnny Van Zant, Head East, Savatage and more.

Their debut album “Taste The Night” was recorded in 1989 at the famous Morrisound Studios with producer Jim Morris (Warrant, Savatage, Crimson Glory, Saigon Kick and many many more) and released the same year via Nite Train Records. More shows played after the release with the likes of Babylon A.D. and Tora Tora. Unfortunately the band split up in 1990.

In 2016 two Intice songs made it to the soundtrack of the action/thriller movie Vicious Thunder. The same year Demon Doll Records released a 19 song CD with the title “The Legacy” which features all the tracks ever recorded by them.

White Lion – Little Fighter

White Lion – Little Fighter

The first single released by White Lion from the 1989 album “Big Game”.

Little Fighter is a song about a Greenpeace boat The Rainbow Warrior that was destroyed by operatives of the French intelligence service in an New Zealand harbor in 1985

Are you cryin’ tonight, are you
Feelin’ alright
I’ll tell the world that you are,
Down on your luck, you were
One of the kind
One who’d never give in
Even when they put a price on your head

Has anyone heard the tales you tell
Or seen the scars you wear
Did anyone speak up when you fell
Does anybody care

Rise again little fighter
And let the world know the reason why
Shine again little fighter
And don’t let ’em end the things you do

And you were one with a cause,
And a reason to be
You were a fighter for peace
On this earth
And you were never afraid
You put your life on the line
And you were always alone
Out on the sea

Without a weapon in your hand
You came to fight a war
They took your life, but didn’t know
That you would never die

Rise again little fighter
And let the world know the reason why
Shine again little fighter
And don’t let ’em end the things you do

Are you feelin’ alright
‘Cause I care

Rise again little fighter
And let the world know the reason why
Shine again little fighter
And don’t let ’em end the things you do

Rise again little fighter
And let the world know the reason why
Shine again little fighter
And don’t let ’em end the things you do
