It's August: Let's Have a Party!

I cannot believe it's August - the last full month of summer. I feel like my favorite season is just flying by and before you know it, the weather  will be snowy and cold. August is a huge month for me this year, as I have lots of activities planned including many concerts. Later this month I'll see Poison/Dokken/Sebastian Bach, Crue Fest, Def Leppard with Billy Idol and head to Rock the Bayou in Houston, Texas. I also celebrate a birthday and my husband turns 30 (yikes!) All these fun events make me feel like having a party. What's a party without good music? Here are my choices for the best Glam party songs of all time (in no particular order):

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah - Kix
Nothin' But a Good Time - Poison
Sticky Sweet - Motley Crue
Dance - RATT
Party All Night- Quiet Riot
I Wanna Rock- Twisted Sister
Living After Midnight - Judas Priest
Unchained - Van Halen
All the Young Dudes - Mott the Hopple
Barracuda - Heart

This one is hard because Glam artists are known for fun music. I suppose it would be just as easy to list entire party albums. I say Open Up and Say...Ahh! takes the cake for the number one party album of all time, followed by Back in Black.

***What are your favorite rockin' party tunes?

While I was writing this, I came across the video for "Party All Night" by Quiet Riot. I haven't seen this clip in years.
