|Which song opened the Love is for suckers tour?|
I`m sitting here listening to "Love is for suckers" and find that is a very good and very underrated album.
I wonder if anyone who were on concert with them on that tour know what song they opened with on that tour?
I found that "Wake up","Tonight" and "Me and the boys" were ideal openers.
Also the title track would be a great opener. '
Btw "You are all that I need is one of the finest songs Ive ever heard.

|I have to agree, Love is for Suckers was an outstanding album, so very under-appreciated by everyone.Even though it was a hard time in the band's career, it still showed just how good they really were,& still are!|

|I absolutely love "Wake Up, the Sleeping Giant" and the title track. After that it's OK. I do have to say that I hate "Hot Love". That's probably the only Twisted song that I actually think sucks. I hate saying anything negative about Twisted Sister to be honest but I just never liked that song. It's just way too pretty hair band sounding. And the lyrics are so un-Twisted to me. There's some cool stuff on the album and overall I do like it but most of it sounds nothing like Twisted. The ass kicking was lacking in a big way after those first 2 tracks on the CD. I felt they lost a lot of their edge on this album. Definitely my least favorite TS album by a long shot. I'd put pretty much all of Dee's solo stuff ahead of this album if I were to rank them to be honest. I actually pretty much view this album as a Dee solo album since that was the intention when he wrote those songs. With that being said, those first 2 tracks are worth the price of the CD easily and I do like it except for "Hot Love" but it simply doesn't stand up to the other TS albums in my opinion. |
I do have to say that it's always blown me away that they opened the tour with "Tonight". That's a cool song but with an ass kicking track like "Wake Up, the Sleeping Giant", I've always wondered how they came to the choice of using "Tonight" instead. "Sleeping Giant" seemed like the obvious choice to me. Just a bit of a head scratcher to me. I’d still love to hear the guys play that one and “Love is for Suckers” live.

|I've only heard "Wake Up the Sleeping Giant" live once...it was thunderous! I also like "Tonight" and I play LIFS every now and then when I need something...different. But I'm with you Howdy.... "Hot Love" was just too cheesy for me--I didn't like the song (although Dee's well, well well rant still cracks me up)|
