cheese rock
« on: March 11, 2014, 08:28:10 pm »
I need help. Seriously. I've got a serious jones for cheese rock. It's like I'm giving a large monkey a piggy back. Or possibly a donkey ride. Which is a confusing transportational menagerie. Best you leave simians to brachiate themselves from A to B or to get an Oyster Card (this is becoming a zoological nightmare). Anyway, I was in the pub the other week, and there were some rocking tunes on the jukebox (yeah, yeah, I know, it was Hackney, so iTunes on a Macbook Pro), you know the kind, the sort that make men in their forties get up and dance, sending everyone younger scuttling into the shadow of their own embarrassment. Fortunately for my marriage and the youth of Hackney, I mostly don't dance in pubs and settled for tapping my foot and nodding my head like I'd developed a mild neurodegenerative disorder. I just said 'rocking tunes'. It's like I'm a million years old, some kind of Morlockian air guitar god. Scatter little Eloi, for I believe I am about to rock.

So, to get a flavour, staples like Don't Stop Believin'.

I confess, for some reason I spend a lot of time listening to things that fall into brackets like electro-goth-folk, so cheese rock has been a bit of a mystery, other than Bon Jovi's greatest hits which sends me running a house like a toddler on Kia-Ora.

Help me compile the ultimate cheese rock playlist. Right here, right now.

Except their first album which is rather good (IMO, of course).

To the OP: just stick to American stadium rock. You can't really go wrong. If you buy something British you may find that it is lacking in cheese and actually pretty decent.

This thread is rocking, keep them coming. My house will be rocking (in the free world). I may have to buy a truck now just to listen to them in a properly sanctified environment. Like a mobile church of cheese rock.

For those of you who want it to stop - see that volume dial? It's going up to ELEVEN.
