I’m a big time Def Leppard fan, and I have been since “Pyromania.” So it should come as no shock that I am going with the original on this one. It is such a great Power Ballad that it can be argued it was one of the best to come out of the Eighties. You can decide for yourself on that one, but it is a great song no matter what labels you put on it.
With all that said, the cover of this song is truly amazing to listen to. Peppy and upbeat, sounding like something straight out of Hawaii. It is very catchy and very good, but it doesn’t have the edge of the original version. This song was meant to be a Power Ballad and it should always stay that way.
So, original or remake? Are you a big Def Leppard fan?
Never been a gigantic fan of this song, and I’m not a big fan of Godsmack either. So, why post these songs you may ask? Because Godsmack’s version of this song is great. It really gives this song a punch I didn’t think it had. Listen to the original and then the remake. Tell me you don’t agree.
The cover version.
So, which is your favorite? I like the energy of the remake. It makes me want to listen to this song a lot more now. Guess that means I am leaning more to that one.
Aerosmith – good tunes
Three and a half solid miles
Lightning bugs flashing
(this song really got me moving last night)
Some more good reasons to drink coffee, helps with running as well.
Caffeine (in coffee or otherwise) improves performance… Hundreds of studies have shown that consuming caffeine before a physical challenge likely helps subjects go farther and faster than when they go without it. This effect holds true in studies of both endurance athletes and sprinters.

Rock in my left shoe
Thumping pain in my right toe
5 Miles – walk and run
This was a very up and down run tonight. It was easy and hard, kind of a strange one, but I made it out the door – didn’t think I would. Running, just got to love it. Such an odd way to stay in shape.
Anybody want to spill about their runs, the good ones or bad ones, just let it flow below.
Zeppelin really pushed me on tonight. Got to give them some love.
I never get tired of this song.
