Top 5 Def Leppard Party Songs

Happy Father's Day!

I was listening to Def Leppard while en route to Kings Island (a big amusement park here in Ohio) when it dawned on me that it is very hard to pick the band's top five party songs. I decided narrowing it down would be a good challenge for all of us. Here's my list. Leave yours in the comments section.


5. Pour Some Sugar On Me
4. Make Love Like a Man
3. Slang
2. Photograph
1. Wasted

'Animal' is my fave Def Lep song bar none. I was worried my bias was clouding my judgement on the tune. It's always on any DL list when it comes to my personal tastes! - Allyson

Rock Brigade
Let It Go
Rock Rock Til You Drop
Me & My Wine

All conveniently compacted into the era before DL became the domain of dim witted fluffies hanging out at Sephora.

1) "Photograph" (one of THE top 5 Hair Metal songs of all time!)
2) "Pour Some Sugar On Me" (not my fave but easily their BIGGEST Party Anthem!)
3) "Rocket" (quintessential Party Metal!)
4) "Wasted" (Ace -- You are right, along with "Rock 'Til You Drop")
5) "Travellin' Band" (scorchin' live cover of the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic recorded at The L.A. Forum on September 11, 1983 with Brian May guesting on guitar! You can find this on the bonus disc included in the Sony Legacy Deluxe version of "Pyromania")

Lot of good choices, but if you're talkin' party songs you have to include "Me & My Wine" for sure.

Also, Ace... Probably the funniest of name checks of Sephora yet and I noticed, not the first time from you. You really have something against that place, don't you, hahaha!!!

MB! Did I previously dis Sephora? I don't remember. HA HA!
What can I say? Being married to a Professional Makeup Artist, Ive see all sort of cosmetic stupidity from the amateurs who populate the "McDonald's of Makeup". It's the equivalent of going to Target to but a professional level guitar. It's just not something that happens in reality. Either way, glad it amused you.

P.S. Starz was incredible. Surprised they've never gotten a "topic of the day" here.

Good ones, Bob! "High And Dry Saturday Night)" is one of my faves! That song probably says "Party" more than any other. Dunno why I didn't think of that, since I bought that album not long after it came out. Sheesh.
