I don’t think they wanted to be glammed up, with teased hair and matador clothing with long jackets, but they did it anyway.
Signed to Polygram, the debut album, “Night Songs”, produced by Andy Johns, had everything from AC/DC style riffing and grooves, to Aerosmith style highs and Keifer’s unique raspy snarl.
But Keifer and co didn’t just sound like all of the other bands out there, because their influences weren’t just your standard Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC acts. They also went back and found out who influenced their influences, and allowed those artists to also influence them, hence the reason why Cinderella was more bluesier than the rest.
The cymbals ring, while the clean tone Am arpeggio chord progression starts the song.
I count the falling tears, they fall before my eyes
It seems like a thousand years since we broke the ties
It seems like the hate and pain will never end, when relationships go bad, but it’s only been a day or two. Time heals all wounds and hearts. You just need to be patient.
I’m no fool
We can believe what we want, but when it comes to love, David Coverdale had it down pat, when he said he’s a fool for loving, because god damn it, that man lives and breathes love. So yes, when it comes to love we are fools. And we keep going back to it.
And the solo, so emotive, building up to the ending and that final chorus.
