Random Song: Stand Up (Kick Love Into Motion)

Artist: Def Leppard
Album: Adrenalize

This isn’t a bad song, particularly.  The only problem that I have with it is that I like big, loud arena rock songs, and that style of music is usually what I look for from Def Leppard.  This song doesn’t really have as much punch as I’d like.  If anything, it feels rather sedate.

Album: Hysteria

Okay, so this is not a lyrically profound song, by any stretch of the imagination.  But most of what makes an arena rock anthem is a great riff and the attitude with which it’s delivered.  And this particular song has both in spades.

Music Video: Everyday

Bounce came out back when I was in college, long before I became a Bon Jovi fan.  (That wouldn’t happen until a few years later — when I started watching Deadliest Catch.)
