Ad Nauseam Tracks

You know how you get that moment when you're driving in the car and the music's cranked up and *that* track comes on? How the raw energy and musical genius blend into this spiral of pure class? How the system's volume is at that perfect cliff-edge between filling your head and tipping into distortion? How, as soon as that track finishes, you have to repeat it? And again? And again? And again?

No?

Oh. Must be just me then.

Anyhow, I have certain tracks that grab a hold of me and won't let go until I've played them ad nauseam. I've just sat down to scribble out a little list of them and observed a pattern emerging: each of them demonstrate real guitar craftsmanship - guys truly at the top of their game - and feature guitar parts that I've always wanted to master and never had the time. So I've given up trying - more important things to do - and just enjoy them. Again and again.

These are great, great songs, so I thought I'd share them with you. Just in case you like them too. (no particular order)

1. Ghost - Slash
2. Summer Song - Joe Satriani
3. Locomotive - Guns & Roses
4. No World For Tomorrow - Coheed and Cambria
5. No Respect - Extreme
6. Star - Extreme
7. Bleed American - Jimmy Eat World
8. Bleed It Out - Linkin Park
9. Suicide & Redemption - Metallica
10. Black Magic - Reb Beach

(Observation #2: many of these aren't very positive-sounding titles...! I do wish song-writers out there would put uplifting lyrics to ridiculously good guitar riffs. Yarp.)
