Nothing tops me and my tennis racket doing 'Hammer To Fall' but if I can't pick myself I'll say......

No, fuck it.

Me doing 'Hammer To Fall' with my tennis racket beats all.


FLASHMAN STRIKES AGAIN!

Way too many to choose from...

Killer Queen
These Are The Days Of Our Lives
Hammer To Fall
Bohemian Rhapsody
Mother Love
Somebody To Love
The Show Must Go On
Too Much Love Will Kill You

I'm a sucker for good guitar solos, so I'm probably not the best person to choose...

1. Show must go on (Queen). Ultimate energy and emotion, brian's skill and Freddie's pain transmitted by 6 strings...
2. Hammer to Hall (Queen at Budapest). Need i say more?
3. Resurrection (Brian May). Along with Cozy Brian plays this mega-fast solo in a very brutal song. Heavy chords, high vocals a the Red Special going faster than lightning.
4. Double Talking Jive (Guns n Roses). The Spanish solo from Slash is amazing.
5. Sultans of Swing (Dire Straits). Simply Knopfler, simply beautifull.

Although I don't think ive heard anything really by Kiss. Or very much Van Halen to be honest so maybe my mind will change when that comes about.

Hmmm...this'll be tough, there are way too many of these to pick from. Once again. This = not permanent list.

5) Even Flow - Pearl Jam
4) Tied to the Whipping Post - The Allman Brothers Band
3) The Invisible Man - Queen
2) Misty Mountain Hop (I think that's it, anyway) - Led Zeppelin
1) Bat Out of Hell (Meat Loaf) - Todd Rundgren. This one's so (relatively) simple, and yet it blows me away every time I listen to it.


God wants you to send me some money.
