Subject: Billy Squier poll

Written By: AL-B on 05/15/05 at 2:05 am

Billy Squier seems to be one of the more overlooked and underrated hard rock artists of the 1980's. Which of these songs is your favorite?

(I chose "In The Dark.")

Rock on. :)

Most people seem to love "The Stroke" but I personally never saw its appeal (even if Adam Sandler liked it in Billy Madison, that can't change my mind on it!). "Lonely is the Night" is too Led Zepplin-ish and "Everybody Wants You", while good, is a bit overplayed.

"In the Dark" though, just seems way more catchy to me. Not quite pop, per se, but a little more melodic than most of his early songs - I think this one had serious "hit" potential and should've attained the popularity "Stroke" has.

I'd be remiss, though, if I didn't applaud his later 80's songs like "Lady with a Tenor Sax" and "Don't Let me Go" - great stuff. Also a little more commercial, but I prefer that.

Those songs bring back memories, standard tunes to be blaring out of car windows in the early 80s, mine being one of them. I picked 'Lonely is the Night' :)
