Happy Memorial Day 2011

Happy Memorial Day, Glam fans. As you remember our troops and officially kick off summer, I figured it was high time we share our fave songs for summer barbecues. Yes, even a non-meat eater like myself enjoys a good grill-out in the backyard (I like veggie skewers and macaroni salad, in case you wondered). Anyway, here are my five songs that scream "glam" and "summer." Be sure to share your five songs with me as well.

Poison - "Ride the Wind"

Steelheart - "Sticky Side Up"

Blue Murder - "Jelly Roll"

Izzy Stradlin and the Ju Ju Hounds - "Shuffle It All"

Buckcherry - "Riding"

Jelly Roll has always baffled me. Starts out great and turns to utter crap at the 2.23 mark. What was Mr. Sykes thinking?

Ah, yes the old "Jelly Roll" conundrum!

Deja vu, Snoot!

With ya on that one, just as I was when we last discussed it on here probably at least a year ago, hahaha!

Here are five of my Summerglamm Songs that also happen to be from bands of the good ol' U.S. of A., in the spirit of Memorial Day...

"Dancin' In The Street", Van Halen
"One Step Away", Ratt
"Summer", Sweet Cheater
"Sweet Melody", Lancia
"Forever", Vince Neil

p.s. All have the word "Summer" in the lyrics. This is the tip of the iceberg, BTW. Coincidentally, I've actually been compiling a Playlist for awhile called "Summerglamm". So far, I've collected around 73 songs, clocking in at a little over 5 hours long. It's all 80's/early 90's Hair/Glam Metal and every song contains the word "Summer" somewhere in the lyrics.

I don't know about five but Y&T's SummerTime Girls has to be in there. How about Van Halen's Ice Cream Man!
