    I can only type "Africa" in so many ways, quiz. WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME? :)
  2. One Lasting Radio Hit (Classic Rock)
    79
    Where did these numbers come from? There's no way that Hold the Line gets 30 times more airplay than Africa and Rosanna combined.

    How do I manage to sing along with this entire song, yet still know so few of the words?
  4. One Lasting Radio Hit (Classic Rock)

    many of these artists I hear other songs by them on the radio all the time. Africa and Rosanna for Toto, Addicted to love for Robert Palmer, I hate myself for loving you for Joan Jett, and Jeopardy for Greg Khin. Oh and I wanna rock for Twisted Sister. (I hear this one more than Were not gonna take it actually!) Maybe the first few aren't "classic rock" but the Twisted Sister one is.

    Jeez, people. Maybe "nonsense" wasn't exactly the right characterization but you can't act like the back half of the song isn't wildly disjoint and populated with odd, VERY uncommon words.
  7. Lyrics Map: Bohemian Rhapsody
    27
    I liked it, but I wish there was a way to not have so many words later in the song triggered by longer words earlier that begin with those words (ie "no" and "not" getting triggered when typing "nothing") I feel like most people are going to do it in order, and this is a bit frustrating when you aren't paying close enough attention and just going line by line.
  8. One Lasting Radio Hit (Classic Rock)

    Agreeing with some of the other commenters, I think Africa is the more-played Toto song. And even if it's not, there's no way that Hold the Line is at 97%. That would mean Africa and Rosanna COMBINED only account for 3%. That's just not possible.

    I'm also surprised to see Marshall Tucker on here. I would've said Can't You See and Heard it in a Love Song are played about equally for them. Definitely the disparity isn't 96%-4% with those two songs.

    As for Robert Palmer, that might be his most played song, but can it really be at 78%? There's not only Addicted to Love out there, there's also Simply Irresistible. One also hears I Didn't Meant to Turn You On from him as well as his Mercy Mercy Me cover.

    For those asking about Red Rider/Tom Cochrane, all I can add to the convo is that I never heard of Red Rider. I have never known of Life is a Highway as anything other than a Tom Cochrane solo song (and now also as a Rascal Flatts cover but the less said about that the better).

    Holy freaking cow. Some of these classic rock stations need to expand their playlists. The Hollies, Joan Jett and War are all in the RRHOF and have a catalog of work that is magnificent. Thin Lizzy, The Guess Who, Warren Freaking Zevon (!!!) -- seriously, if you only know one of those artists' songs, you don't know what you're missing.
