I get some really fun things to review and most recently got the opportunity to review the Rock of Ages soundtrack to the Tony Award nominated musical that stars American Idol finalist Constantine Maroulis.
Set in 1987 in a legendary Sunset Strip rock club, a small-town girl meets a big-city dreamer and they fall in love to the greatest metal songs of the 80’s. The musical is an arena-rock love story told through the mind-blowing, face-melting hits of Journey, Bon Jovi, Styx, Reo Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Foreigner, Twisted Sister, Poison, Asia, Whitesnake and more.
I’m rarely in the car long enough to listen to anything since school has been out for the summer, so what better time to review the Rock of Ages soundtrack than on the four hour car ride to Chicago for BlogHer ’09. I seriously knew every word to every song on the CD. I loved it and hope they travel so I can see the performance live because that would be the icing on the cake!
Basically, loved the CD, would love to see the Rock of Ages performance live and recommend it if you can sing one or more of the following songs:
Just Like Paradise / Nothin’ But A Good Time
We Built This City / Too Much Time On My Hands
I Wanna Rock
We’re Not Gonna Take It
Heaven/More Than Words / To Be With You
Waiting For A Girl Like You
Wanted Dead Or Alive
I Want To Know What Love Is
Cum On Feel The Noize / We’re Not Gonna Take It (Reprise)
Harden My Heart / Shadows Of The Night
Here I Go Again
The Final Countdown
Any Way You Want It / I Wanna Rock (Reprise)
I Hate Myself For Loving You / Heat Of The Moment
Hit Me With Your Best Shot
