Hair Metal Love Songs

About this playlist

Back in the '80s and even into the early '90s, hair metal bands totally would have been your valentine, if only you'd let them! Or at least that's what's suggested by the candy-heart-on-sleeve serenades on this playlist, featuring mostly sincerely crooned and frequently mascara-tear-stained ballads, though by the end lustlorn lads like Winger ("Seventeen"), Helix ("Heavy Metal Love") and Twisted Sister (uh, "Love Is for Suckers") up the tempo somewhat. Well OK, it's admittedly not always easy to determine which glam slams and Sunset Strip groupie gropes count as "love songs," but anything with "love" in the title was pretty much given the benefit of the doubt. And if it's not absolutely clear whether, say, L.A. Guns were personally in love, per sé, with Jayne of "Ballad of Jayne" fame -- ditto Enuff Z'Nuff with Michelle of "Fly High Michelle" -- it seems only fair to assume they were. Please swoon accordingly.
