He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Great song.

^Tis those old 80's songs that are usually a slow tune based around love, or longing for something. They usually intend to be powerful. Just look though Resi and Rock 24/7's lists and see if you recognize any, and you'll get the idea.

And we can't forget "Take No Prisoners."

What confuses me is why there isn't an awesome solo in Total Eclipse of the Heart, I could write a killer solo to that.

I think that song was voted one of the "least metal moments" on one of VH1's countdowns.. I like it though

Here are a couple more...

Badland's - Winter's Call (Great, great song!)
Dokken - In My Dreams
Bon Jovi - Born to be my Baby & She Don't Know Me
Heart - Alone & These Dreams (Don't know if these fall into this category)
