White Lion – All Best 80s / 90s Hair Metal Ballads And Songs
Actually, most of the songs from today’s White Lion compilation have already appeared here, but I decided to gather them in one place.
It seems that White Lion was one of the most hated hard rock/hair metal bands in 80s/90s decade. From today’s perspective it might appear a bit funny, because actually their visual image and “syrupy” lyrics were not liked by “true” metals in that days. Nevertheless, the vocals and music in overall are on very high level and actually most of today’s mainstream rock bands are real crap if they are compared to White Lion – but it is only my personal and subjective opinion.
I will start with 5 songs that appeared in previous compilation.
#1 White Lion – When The Children Cry (sad)
“When The Children Cry” is the most successful power ballad ever recorded by White Lion and it’s video is also one of the most viewed hair metal songs on YouTube.
#2 White Lion – Wait (neutral)
Actually, it is not a ballad – but “Wait” is one of the White Lion hits and most recognizable songs and personally my number two after “You’re All I Need”
#3 White Lion – Tell Me (neutral)
This song is a bit similar to Wait when it comes to lyrics and imo “Tell Me” has the best video of all White Lion’s recordings.
#4 White Lion – Broken Heart (sad)
Broken Heart was released twice with a slightly different lyrics and melody in 1985 on ‘Fight To Survive‘ and again one more popular album ‘Mane Attraction‘ released in 1991.
#5 White Lion – Love Don’t Come Easy (optimistic)
White Lion expressed all kind of emotions in their songs, 🙂 If we are talking about “Love Don’t Come Easy”, it is very optimistic song, 🙂
#6 White Lion – You’re All I Need (very optimistic)
“Love Don’t Come Easy” is even more optimistic and for sure more romantic than “Love Don’t Come Easy”, unhappily White Lion never recorded a video for it.
#7 White Lion – Little Fighter (optimistic)
Hmm, it is not my most favorite song, despite the fact that “Little Fighter” is very melodic and guitars in this song are really amazing, 🙂
#8 White Lion – Radar Love (neutral)
“Radar Love” is the cover of Golden Earring’s song and personally I prefer White Lion’s version and a video for it is surely their best one.
#9 White Lion – Cry For Freedom (sad)
It is another White Lion’s sad song and I have to admit that I do not like it, as it is quite boring to me.
#10 White Lion – Till Death Do Us Part (optimistic)
“Till Death Do Us Part” is a very melodic ballad with a huge dose of love lyrics. It is one of the most listened songs by White Lion on YouTube.
White Lion – Farewell To You (neutral)
And the last song today, “Farewell To You” which is very calm and as all of White Lion best songs is about love, but in this case, it is hard to say if it is optimistic or rather neutral.
