Songs of My Life #59 - Twisted Sister - Stay Hungry - 1984
It would have been so easy to put up "We're Not Gonna Take It" as my song here, because it is extremely well known, is a terrific song in its own right, and the video is superb. And this along with other Twisted Sister songs will crop up down the track if I continue this for some time.
But it is the title track to the wonderful 'Stay Hungry' album that is the song that has been my favourite. It is one of those excellent 'build-up' songs that I used to listen to before big cricket matches or before batting in such times, to go out with the best attitude and completely focused. This version has the lyrics for you to read along with. They might seem cheesy in this context, but they always worked a treat for me.
This always got the adrenaline pumping. It needs to be played loud with the bass turned up, and sung at the top of your vocal range. Awesome.
"Stay hungry, you're alone!"
