Cheesy Rock Love Ballads That Men Love But Won’t Admit It


I thought this would be an interesting bit to do. I know there are songs out there that men love but will never admit it in public.  I will let you be the judge though. You tell me.

If your a guy have you listened to these songs before?

Skid Row ( I Remember You )

Damn Yankies  (High Enough)

Cinderella – Don’t Know What You Got (Till It’s Gone)

Black Sabbath  (Changes)

chickOkay I know there are some guys out there looking at these videos thinking omg this guy is cheesy.

But I know deep down inside you listened to these songs one time or another.

Chances are you were probably sitting in the woods drinking some beers sobbing about how SHE broke your heart…..

Lita Ford & Ozzy Osbourne  (Close Your Eyes Forever)

One thought that lingers in my mind about these songs is how universal love is. How powerful of an emotion love is. I am sure boy or girl you have felt the sting of love.

Extreme  (More Than Words)

REO Speedwagon  (Keep on Loving You)

As started writing this bit, I realized that there are literally hundreds of cheesy rock love type songs. So rather than list them all I am hoping you will share with me some of your cheese worthy rock love ballads.

So what says you?

Which songs to you remember from your youth?

Jason Mraz – Intro

So as you may have guessed I love playing guitar, in fact I have been playing guitar for over 20 years.  Playing music is the one thing that gives me sanity.  Since I no longer have dreams of playing in a band, to entertain myself I decided to learn how to play and sing as many acoustic songs as my voice allows me to. What I have found is a ton of useful information so I thought I would vlog about it. I figure at the very least I can give some of you other closet musicians a reference point. In theory I could write out the tab, lyrics and chords for you. I could even make my some youtube videos of me playing and singing. Sadly there is only so much time in a day, so instead of re-inventing the wheel. I’ll just share the good stuff I find

Jason Mraz – The actual Song

The best way I learn is by first listening to the original so here it is.

Here is another persons rendition of the song

While I have seen different ways to play Jason Mraz’s “Im Yours” song this is the easiest version I have found.

I like the way that this guy explains how to play the song. He teaches it in a easy to follow way enjoy!

Who Wrote The First Psychedelic Song Anyways?

A interesting question came up today while I was conversing with a friend about psychedelic music. So I decided to hunt down the fathers so to speak of Psychedelic Music.

Psychedelic music started in the 1960’s with all that free love nonsense.  I never was to big into the hippy movement, but I sure did love a lot of the music that came out during that time period.

What set this type of music apart from other types of music was it’s eastern influence and use of rare instruments and all types of experimental sounds.

So I really couldn’t find the answer to what was the first song, but I did find out who was the first band that got labeled Psychedelic Rock

The 13th Floor Elevators

I didn’t stop their I figured while I am at it I would search out some of the more known music.  When you say the words Psychedelic music many people instantly think Beatles, probably because of tracks like Lucy In the Sky Of Diamonds.

Jimi Hendrix came on the scene like a flash of lighing, he was only on the scene for a short time , but in that time he made an explosion in music that is still felt today.

Are You Experienced

Totally overplayed but they certainly left their mark on the Psychedelic era Jefferson Airplane was pretty blunt with their message in the classic White Rabbit

This list wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t mention this next band, The grateful dead had a huge following and I remember even in the late 80’s and early early 90’s people in my school where all about them. So ya you can say they made a huge impact on people

Seriously though all these bands are all well and good, and I am sure I could of listed dozens more, but none of those could even touch this next band. They took Psychedelic to a whole new realm of sound all together

Pink Floyd – Shine On You Crazy Diamond

So where are we at today? Has the Psychedelic music vanished? So you gotta love youtube I started searching to see what is out there today who got their influence from bands like this. Here is a band that never made it main stream but dam they write good tracks..

Well that wraps up this psychedelic adventure, until next time… Oh and if anyone knows who actually wrote the first psychedelic song I would love for you to leave a comment and tell me. I just can’t seem to find the answer
