8. My Number
If you’re eyeing a special love interest, every time you listen to “My Number” by Lillian Axe, you can’t help humming to your favorite punchlines in stanza two. “And I could show you to my mother, you’re just my mama’s kind. Mama, this girl’s my lover, and she’s one of a kind”. If that isn’t the best punchline a man has ever used to woo you, then no other can.

“She Likes It on Top” was released on 20th July 1989, and it’s one of the songs featured in the album “Love + War.” At the time, hair metal didn’t exist. Instead, it was just hard rock, and that’s all this song delivers. From the loud crunching guitars, you can tell that the rock band is worth the price. If this song won’t give you a good mood to kickstart your day, no other will.
4. Show a Little Love
“Show a Little Love” is another song we found worth a spot in our playlist, thanks to the heavy metal and lyrics that Lillian Axe disseminated. It was released in 1989, and it’s one of the songs you will find in their album “Love + War.” It doesn’t take rocket science to discover how talented the guitarist Steve Blaze and vocalist Ron Taylor are. Sometimes, it’s good to appreciate music that tells a love story, but the instrumentals used to deliver it have a way of setting you in the mood. This track comes in handy if you’re in the mood to appreciate your love interest.
3. The Promised Land
When you want to set the mood to achieve greatness, “The Promised Land” is everything you want to hear when you have a situation that’s trying to weigh you down. It tells a story about a man trying to woo a woman who doesn’t seem interested in him. It’s hard to imagine what men go through as they pursue women who don’t reciprocate their love. We hope the situation will change with time, considering how modern times have changed how people perceive situations.
2. Dyin’ to Live (Shades of Blue)
Almost all songs in Lillian Axe’s album “Poetic Justice” have a deep story to tell, and the song “Dyin’ to Live” isn’t an exception. Upon listening to the song’s lyrics, you can’t help but notice how poetic they are. For example, they say, “
“But maybe now
When you lose control
You’ll see what I could give
Trapped inside your heart
I’m dyin’ to live.”
Now try to imagine someone who doesn’t appreciate the little things you do for them. doesn’t it feel demoralizing. We believe Lillian Axe couldn’t have put it any better.
Released in 1993, “Crucified” is more of a compilation of advice from a rock band that has seen it all. It is no wonder this song ranked number one on this list. It talks about people standing their ground and staying strong in their beliefs, especially in the face of adversity. If you’re going through a rough patch in life, just know that no one is strong enough to navigate painful situations in today’s world. It only takes a strong belief system to navigate life.
