Heavy Metal Love Songs

    Some of us are trying to pick out heavy metal love songs for rocker Chris to sing on American Idol. (Yes, I watch. It is a guilty pleasure.)

    Anyhoo, all I can think of is Guns n' Roses' "Sweet Child of Mine." I know full well there are more, many more, even if they are kind of "unusual" love songs.

    Please tell me the names of others.

    Sabbra Cadabra?

    I believe it's off Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.
  3. The first one that came to mind is Love Song by Tesla but then I thought Tesla is probably not well known enough and people would be like what's this. Then I thought Still Loving Youby the Scorpions which I think is the most played song in strip clubs after Girls Girls Girls, but then thought that would only generate the mens vote, so after thinking about it Every Rose Has It's Thorne would garner votes from both sexes. But their are tones of heavey metal love songs the list is endless.

    'I Remember You' by Skid Row comes to mind. And 'Wasting Love' by Iron Maiden.

  6. beat me to it tplyons :)

    actually you should watch tv, there is a new monster ballad comp. cd out...check out those songs :)
  7. if i close my eyes forever- lita ford / ozzy osbourne
  8. Maybe this is too metal for what you 're looking for but give it a chance: Pantera-This Love

    A softer one: Deep Purple- I Need Love

    That's the best I can do :(

    Edit: Oh, found another one. It is on Metallica's CD "Garage Days Revisited" but I don't know who wrote it: "Lover Man"
  9. Darkthrone- Natassja In Eternal Sleep
    Pig Destroyer- Restraining Order Blues
    Judas Priest- Turbo Lover

    The first 2 would be the most entertaining.

    Gee, thanks for all the ideas. I do know some of the songs, even the Tesla song. I used to like that band. And Pantera has been a big favorite of mine for years. (RIP, Darryl.) I will check out the songs. I think Iron Maiden has another "love' song on their "Fear of the Dark" CD, too, but I need to check deep into my CDs to find it.

    Poison may have a couple of other love songs, as well, and even Slaughter, as far as that goes. Def Leppard may have a couple, too.

    Your ideas have got me to thinking. I appreciate your help.

    no one like for the scorpions

    that's the only one I can think of right now.
  13. I checked "fear of the dark" and I guess you mean the song "wasting love". Actually it's the first time I listen to it, although I have the CD for 5 years. All those years I've been skipping it :)

    Check out Cryhavoc. A totally underrated band from Finland.

    Sweet Amber

    I'm not sure, but I have the feeling both the Unforgivens are love songs and the same goes for Carpe Diem Baby

    All Metallica
  17. This Love by Pantera

    I don't know if anyone here gigs this song, but you can really improve it by singing "my favourite things" from sound of music as a a counter melody. It fits pretty well (I guess Metallica are big fans of the movie, and ripped it off for a joke!) - do a couple of verses straight, then do a verse of FT, then a verse with both melodies together.

    Go on - I dare yah!

    Its pretty sick but Metallica's cover of Nick Cages Loverman might just work.
