Top Customer Reviews
Whatever it is Steve Tyler has caught, it sure isn't "Rocking Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu," originally done by Huey "Piano" Smith and popularized by Johnny Rivers. Joe Perry and the rest of Aerosmith are OK, but even by Tyler's standards... please someone give him some cough syrup.
Ringing in that final curtain, whether it be by a long life of self-destructive activity, or simply having had it with life, is made poignant by Roy Orbison's "Life Fades Away," which is also a goodbye to a loved one. "My time has come the clouds are calling/December wind has come my way/and now I feel the world falling/all at once, it's too late, life fades away." How often too this line sings to me, especially nowadays: "I'm tired of tomorrow/lost for today/I long to be at peace forever." A near tie with the Bangles as my favourite song here.
Inbetween Look What The Cat Dragged In and Open Up And Say Ahh!, hard-metal badboys Poison did this decent version of KISS's "Rock And Roll All Night." Not much variation in the guitars and drums--it's as if they did a karoake version, but they don't mess it up.
The two rap songs here aren't too impressive. LL Cool J's slow and anemic "Going Back To Cali" is built around a jazz trumpet melody and consists of bass and some scratching. Public Enemy's "Bring The Noise" is the original version sans Anthrax and is the better of the two due to Chuck D's snappier and stronger vocalled rap.Read more ›
"Life Fades Away," written by Glenn and Roy Orbison, is great as well. Roy Orbison is a legend, one of the most original voices in rock music. (As is Danzig.) "Life Fades Away" is haunting and memorable. I agree with the previous reviewer that I wish Glenn would record a version of this song. (As he did with "Thirteen" written for Johnny Cash.) Get this CD for these two songs that Danzig is in on. It's worth it.

There is a background score of orchestral music in this movie that moves me everytime I see the movie. Does anyone else hear that? What/Who made that music?
You & Me (Less Than Zero) is actually an interpretation of the song "To Sir, With Love" with different lyrics. Read morePublished on April 6 2003 by Daniel Richmond

This CD has a really good cover songs. What I really like the most is the remake of the In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida redone by Slayer or Hazy Shade of Winter by the Bangels. Read morePublished on March 7 2000 by Eddie Kapur
