Sunday Metal – Scorpions

Scorpions “Still Loving You”, August 31, 1985, Oakland.

One thing I appreciated about Scorpions was their ballads were composed different from the times. It wasn’t just box chord progressions.

  1. They were one of those bands, where their work is much deeper than just the 2 or 3 hits that everyone knows (my personal favorite example is Extreme, of “More Than Words” fame). Looking at the slug on this post (sunday-metal-scorpions-7) tells me you agree that the Scorpions catalog is worth digging into.

    • Oh yeah… Scorpions is deep. There was the whole 70’s catalog, the Uli Jon Roth era. But then a major shift/revival in the 80s. And they’re still going strong. I just appreciated how their songs, their style, their writing – it wasn’t just canned progressions and same old stuff. There was a much greater depth to what they did. That’s what I appreciated about other such bands like Ratt or Great White – they were “of the genre/era” but they weren’t “of the formula”.

      I didn’t realize my slug was up to 7 on them. HA! I wouldn’t be surprised if I didn’t go that deep, but just repeated some of my favorites again and again. 🙂
