"Get In The Ring" is fun and has to be kept.

And I want to believe that a light's shining through somehow

Locomotive

Get In The Ring


Looking closer, I could depart with 'Double Talking Jive' for one of those two.

As for a second song to drop, well, that's much harder. I'd probably need to make it 16 tracks to include both of those and all the good ones.

Re: Use Your Illusion new [re: Adam]  

I would drop one of the covers, probably Knockin on Heaven's Door, or maybe Don't Cry and put in Locomotive and/or Get In The Ring. I'd keep Double Talking Jive. Other than that, I think it's a very good selection.

Re: Your favourite Guns N' Roses song new [re: Froggy Starlust]  

if there is any G'n'R song which does not feature Axl Rose singing with a voice of an angry old woman, it'll be probably my favourite.

everything was roses when we held on to the guns new [re: th0mas]  

Axl does not sing at all on 'So Fine' (rather Duff McKagan takes the lead). Also on 'You Ain't The First', IF that's Axl, then he keeps his more controlled, deeper voice.

Indeed, the voice used for "You Ain't First" sounds much more interesting than axls usual voice. Unfortunatly I am somehat allergic against western music, so the song still failed for me... but "So Fine" is indeed not bad. The voice isn't brilliant or special in any way, but at least it does not destroy the song as Axl's would.

The song One In A Million with its delightful "immigrants and faggots" line in particular, is exactly what puts me off. A shame, because I actually like what I've heard, sans that song.

I am not a native speaker but I never understood the fuss about that line. Not if you look at it less isolated. To me it is not necessarily Axl's very own opinion but that of the "small town white boy" he sings about. And there are certainly loads of those cliche characters which think and talk like that. And writing a song about it isn't necessarily wrong. Of course I do not know if Axl shares that opinion and of course Axl could have woven in a few words of dissociation from the character in his song to get himself on the safe side - but then again it was one of ther group's virtues to not go for the safe option.

Admittedly, I'm not really an expert on Guns n Roses. From what you've stated however, I guess that what was being said in that particular song is far less offensive than I had thought it to be.

Its just that from an outsiders point of view - particularily if you're gay/bi or an immigrant etc. it can come across as offensive if not taken in the right context.

I agree. I'm a songwriter myself, and if some of my lyrics were taken literallly, then I'd be some sort of pschoychotic (I know its spelt wrong) mass murderer.

Anyway, thanks for the insight.
