‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ vs ‘Whitesnake': Which Album Is Better?
I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time. I know which album I'm voting for. How about you?
A pair of classic 80s rock albums celebrate their 30th anniversary this year with special re-issues: Mötley Crüe's 'Girls, Girls, Girls' and Whitesnake's self-titled album. Both are iconic albums that were all over MTV and radio back in 1987 as the "Hair Metal" scene had reached its pinnacle of commercial success.
Today we put these two albums in the ring and only you get to decide wich one remains standing. Will Mötley Crüe ride off into the Sunset Strip on their Harleys heads and hair held high or will David Coverdale do a victory lap in his classic Jaguar with Tawny Kitaen on his lap?
Before we ring the bell let's take a look a closer look at our two 80s metal heavyweights.
My vote goes to 'Whitesnake' although it's not by much. These are two albums I go to often for my 80s rock fix. At the end of the day, however, the 'Whitesnake' album has more songs that stand out and those songs stand the test of time, particularly a couple of deep tracks. "Still Of The Night", "Here I Go Again" and "Is This Love" were huge hits as we know but these songs still hold up after all these years; the biggest being "Here I Go Again" which continues to get tons of requests from i95 listeners.
As for those two deep tracks it's both "Straight From The Heart" and "Don't Turn Away" that are so good it's surprising they weren't released as singles back when the album came out.
So now you have my vote, it's your turn. Let us know which album you pick in the comments section below or on i95's Facebook page.
