Mr. Big – To Be With You

Posted in #1 Billboard Hot 100, 1991, Glam Rock, Mr. Big on August 27, 2007 by pelicancup

In 1991, Mr. Big released their album, Lean Into It. The last song on the album was this song, To Be With You. It went unnoticed for almost a year until a Nebraska disc jockey put it into his station’s rotation. After a flood of calls, the song picked up steam and eventually hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and stayed there for 3 weeks. Not bad for a single that wasn’t supposed to be “Big” (pun intended). Enjoy!

November Rain by Guns N’ Roses is one of my favorite songs by the band. It’s also a great video featuring Axl’s then-girlfriend, Stephanie Seymour. It’s one of the most expensive music videos ever made coming in at over $1.5 million and it won an MTV Video Music Award for Best Cinematography. It’s from their 1991 album, Use Your Illusion I.

Queen – Innuendo

Posted in 1991, British Bands, Queen, Rock Legends on August 20, 2007 by pelicancup

In 1991, Queen released Innuendo, and the first song on the album was Innuendo. It’s one of their longest songs at over six and a half minutes long. An earlier version of the video was banned from the U.S. because it included footage from the first Gulf War and they edited out the war footage for the American video. Enjoy!
