97X Song Of The Daze

Play Video

Anyone reading this will probably not believe that someone who loves rock and roll did not hear this featured song until about 20 years after it came out. “Whaddya livin’ in a cave?” you may ask. Well, kind of. “Thunderstruck” — one of the most power-packed songs ever devised (imo) — was released in September 1990. That was one year after I moved to the lovely island of Kauai — a place pretty much devoid of anything that is harder rock than Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ On A Prayer.” If there had been a tally, I heard Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” 2,000 times in 1990. “Thunderstruck?” Zero!! And even on Oahu, where I live now, there’s, like, one real rock and roll station. All I can say now is the world would be a less enjoyable place without this gift of a rip-roaring song. Give it a good listen now, if you want to get the ol’ blood pumping. Or, maybe you’ve already heard it 2,000 times.
