Day 28: “I Remember You” – Skid Row. The ‘hair metal’ phenomenon

!!!ITALIANO!!!

Sebastian Bach‘s amazing vocal ability, a really remarkable sound, lyrics which can move to tears any 15 year-old girl and a good guitar solo: these are the basic elements of the song I propose today to pay tribute to a musical trend, the pop metal or hair metal, well known in the second half of the 80’s, which could remind the early heavy metal of the 70’s, but was much more concentrated on the visual impact, on the look, rather than searching for something new on the musical point of view. Melodies are generally simple and quite easy to remember, the influence is clearly pop. Anyway, hair metal will not live that long… Few years later, in fact, a new style would come, a new trend, and its most representative band will be the object of my next post. Of course you know who I am talking about…

Now enjoy this power ballad, from the first Skid Row album, 1989, directly from New Jersey:

Lyrics

Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
The wind would whisper and I’d think of you
And all the tears you cried, that called my name
And when you needed me I came through

I paint a picture of the days gone by
When love went blind and you would make me see
I’d stare a lifetime into your eyes
So that I knew you were there for me
Time after time you were there for me

Remember yesterday – walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sand – I remember you
Through the sleepless nights and every endless day
I’d wanna hear you say – I remember you

We spend the summer with the top rolled down
Wished ever after would be like this
You said I love you babe, without a sound
I said I’d give my life for just one kiss
I’d live for your smile and die for your kiss

Remember yesterday – walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sand – I remember you
Through the sleepless nights and every endless day
I’d wanna hear you say – I remember you

We’ve had our share of hard times
But that’s the price we paid
And through it all we kept the promise that we made
I swear you’ll never be lonely

Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
Washed away a dream of you
But nothing else could ever take you away
‘Cause you’ll always be my dream come true
Oh my darling, I love you

Remember yesterday – walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sand – I remember you
Through the sleepless nights and every endless day
I’d wanna hear you say – I remember you

Remember yesterday – walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sand – I remember you
Through the sleepless nights and every endless day
I’d wanna hear you say – I remember you
