    A song befitting this forum:

    How about the Beatle's: "Happiness is a Warm Gun".

    Yes, it really is a Beatle's song:
    YouTube - Happiness is a Warm Gun - John Lennon [Beatles]
    "Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch; Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote."

    OK guys, I have to weigh in on this. When I was much younger, back in the '70s, I grew up here in San Antonio, TX. My father was/is a prominent CPA (bean counter to us commoners) and used to have an eccentric millionaire for a client, who just happened to own a Radio station as a tax shelter. The format of this station was independent and verrrry flexible and was headed up by two guys named Lou Roney and Joe Anthony. Those were prominent names in the hard rock arena because they were the first American DJs to give a whole lot of the following bands airplay. I write this because I got to meet a whole lot of these bands I am about to list and their hits, and have promo copies of the albums the songs came from.

    So here we go:

    Angel - White hot
    AC/DC - Walk All over you
    Argent - Hold your head up
    Black Sabbath - Sabbra Cadabra
    Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Karn evil 9
    Foghat - Honey Hush
    Grand Funk Railroad - E.Pluribus Funk (entire album)
    Garfield - A private Affair
    Lone Star - The Bells of Berlin
    Moxy - Sail On, Sail Away
    Montrose - Space Station #5
    Rainbow - The gates of Babylon
    Riot - Warrior, Entire "Fire Down Under" album.....
    Rush - The Necromancer
    Sammy Hagar Live - Rock-n-Roll Weekend (his opening statement says it all!)


    And Finally,

    The Five Man Electrical Band - Signs

    And if your'e a real aficionado of the hard-to-find:

    Sir Lord Baltimore - Woman Tamer

    There, some cool tunes that never quite made it.

    Reinassance: Ashes Are Burning. (Live Version)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83rsZTERspc

    Genesis:
    The Knife http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XhDHJNuyXw
    The Musical Box http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvzrLSJnNso
    Pre Phil Collins Songs

    Alice Cooper
    Years Ago + Steven http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hs9K49EhdS0
    And let me add a "romatic" song from Alice
    Only Women Bleed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWe0pb55q8w

    And I should have added Karn Evil 9 (all three movements) too. In my Ipod as we speak

    PS: Ozzy, Mason and all the rest look stupid to me.... I see a video of Alice Cooper and the sucker still chills my spine sometimes. There is always a touch of true madness behind his eyes while on stage.

    I don't suppose Donny Osmond's Sweet and Innocent would fall into this category?
    Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.

    Something in the Air, from Thunderclap Newman, a group put together as a side project by The Who's Pete Townshend back in the sixties.

    It has this memorable lyric:

    Hand out the arms and ammo
    We're going to blast our way through here
    We've got to get together sooner or later
    Because the revolution's here, and you know it's right
    And you know that it's right
    Cheers,
    Rod

    How about a little Steve Winwood and "Traffic?"

    "Low Spark of High Heeled Boys"
    "Feelin' Alright"
    "Rock and Roll Stew"
    "Freedom Rider"
    "Dear Mr. Fantasy"

    Or their more obscure but also appealing:

    "Pearly Queen" or the instrumental "Glad".



    "Canned Heat" and "On the Road Again" deserves a mention.
