tuesday tunage - rock of ages

Are you ready to rock?!? I was all about 80's rock and hair bands. Warrant, Twisted Sister, Poison, Whitesnake..... sigh. I could go on and on.

Did you know that New Line Records has releases a CD off the Original Broadway Cast Recording of five-time Tony Award nominated "ROCK OF AGES." For those of you not in the know, Rock of Ages is the new Broadway musical starring American Idol finalist Constantine Maroulis. Want a sneak peek at some of the recording action? Check it out!

Here is the background: The musical is set in 1987 in a legendary Sunset Strip rock club. As fate has it, a small-town girl meets a big-city dreamer and they fall in love to the greatest metal songs of the 80's. The musical is an arena-rock love story told through the mind-blowing, face-melting hits of Journey, Bon Jovi, Styx,Reo Speedwagon, Pat Benatar and more.
You won't believe what songs are on this album! Here is a list of just a few of the hits:

Just Like Paradise / Nothin' But A Good Time
We Built This City / Too Much Time On My Hands
We're Not Gonna Take It
Waiting For A Girl Like You
Wanted Dead Or Alive
Cum On Feel The Noize / We're Not Gonna Take It (Reprise)
Harden My Heart / Shadows Of The Night
Here I Go Again
The Final Countdown
Any Way You Want It / I Wanna Rock (Reprise)
Hit Me With Your Best Shot
Can't Fight This Feeling
Every Rose Has Its Thorn

Don't tell me you aren't already singing along after reading some of those titles! And, I have to admit that I have a few favorites. First - let me warn you that Constantine Maroulis singing "I Wanna Rock" will instantly having you banging your head and rocking out. My other favorite is Amy Spanger and Constantine Maroulis singing a medley of "I Hate Myself For Loving You" and "The Heat of the Moment". Oh to be back in the 80s again!

So come on! Feel the noise, get the CD and rock on!! With that I am off to pull out my leather pants and tease my bangs!

A special thanks to One2One Network for making another Rock of Ages groupie!
