So now that the dust has settled, here are the answers to GQ2: The Revenge - Round 1.
- Song 101: Dire Straits - Walk Of Life: None of y'all got this one, which quite frankly surprised teh hell out of me. Ok; I didn't include the famous keyboard intro (although a guitar version of that one might not help that much), and admittedly I put a little more overdrive on the single-coil tone from my 'S than what Mr. Knopfler does, but I still thought this would be instantly recognizable. Oh well; not my favorite DS song anyhoo, despite having played it many, many times.
- Song 102: Queen - Love Of My Life: My take on the "Live Killers" version. Awesome tune. Never got to do this live, as we never had a singer capable of pulling off any Mercury songs. So; I used the intro as a segue to "Neste Sommer" by Norwegian band DeLillos.
- Song 103: TnT - 10,000 Lovers (In One): Only one of y'all got this one, despite my feeble attempts at adding Ronni Tekrø-style machine-gunning at the back end of the track. Great riff!
- Song 104: Helloween - Dr. Stein: Only one of y'all got this one as well. Really kewl tune from the band that invented power metal and got MTV airplay...including for this one.
- Song 105: Ac/Dc - Back In Black: Oh yes - all y'all found it. The song has too few damn notes in it, so I was forced to add a little tapped lick at the conclusion of the chorus.
