Reach for the Sky

reachforthesky.jpgSo far, the glam mistress is feeling anything but glam today. I was sick all night and this morning, I had to get a tetanus shot but I'll spare you the gory details of both painful situations. You may have noticed that this website was down for several hours and that made me mad too.

Since I was up sick all night, I didn't get much sleep and that means I can't think of many pithy topics to write about today.

If you check the Internet home of the Hairball John Radio Show (link to the right of this page), you probably noticed I recently posted an article about deserted island albums. Of my three choices, I selected Motley Crue's Shout at the Devil, Def Leppard's Hysteria and RATT's Reach for the Sky.

In my ever humble opinion, Reach for the Sky is a greatly underrated album, containing my all-time favorite RATT song "I Want a Woman."

I think I like "I Want a Woman" so much because I love the video. It begins with a female producer, cueing cameras before a RATT concert. Being a producer myself, I get this.

Here's the video for "I Want a Woman." Enjoy and I hope your day is better than mine!

Great band, great song. they could have done that intro a bit better tho. seems like they tried too hard to make it sexy at the same time. I'm sure that was the label...

Sorry to hear you're under the weather.

To be honest, Ratt never grabbed me that much even though they're one of the earlier hair metal bands that I tend to cut a little slack. I liked Out of the Cellar well enough at the time, but none of the other albums really stuck with me.

I have to agree with you, 'I Want A Woman' is a great song and REACH FOR THE SKY is a very strong album. Always been a Ratt fan.
