My Spotify Playlists

My taste in music has always been eclectic. I like music from the 60’s to the present. I became a teen in 1983 (12) so think heavy metal & big hair bands. The main bands that graced my bedroom walls were:

Scorpions

Motley Crue

Ratt

Dokken

Metallica

Van Halen

Def Leppard

Bon Jovi

Iron Maiden

Judas Priest

Loverboy

I also had 2 huge posters-full body I should say of Jon Bon Jovi above my headboard & on the side of my bed. He was the last thing I saw before I closed my eyes & the first thing that I saw when I woke up. Sigh…Jon Bon Jovi. What a total babe. He still looks good today!

I liked other heavy metal/hard rock bands too like:

AC/DC

Cinderella

Poison

Guns N’ Roses

Quiet Riot

Dio

Whitesnake

April Wine

Kansas

Honeymoon Suite

Aldo Nova

Night Ranger

Skid Row

Tesla

Europe

Saga

Boston

White Lion

Billy Squier

Journey

Foreigner

Asia

Styx

Reo Speedwagon

Cheap Trick

Blue Oyster Cult

Pink Floyd

Bad Company

Led Zeppelin

Black Sabbath

Rainbow

Yes

Queen

Rush

Golden Earring

Billy Idol

There are so many others that I probably forgot but you get the picture. I didn’t get into Megadeth, too much but loved their Peace Sells song. While I enjoyed my music loud, I didn’t like the speed/thrash/death metal bands like Slayer & Anthrax. They weren’t my thing.

On May 27, 1988 I went to Alpine Valley in East Troy, Wisconsin to the Monsters of Rock show. I saw my beloved Eddie of Van Halen without David Lee Roth. Sucks that I didn’t get to see DLR. Sammy Hagar was better solo than with Van Halen.

Scorpions, Dokken, Metallica & Kingdom Come were also playing. All of these bands with the exception of Kingdom Come were my fav bands. It was an awesome show & I will never forget it! Infact, I still I have my concert stub.

Look for another post in the future about my favorite female singers/bands & who I was heavily influenced by.

Below are my current 47 playlists on Spotify. All of the above bands & more can be found on my All Songs 60’s-Now+Spiritual playlist. I have a total of 4,426 songs.

If you feel inclined please add me. Let’s be friends! I made the pictures “large” so viewing is easier on the eyes.
