For tonight on THE TOP 3, we feature songs perfect for “DIA DE LOS MUERTOS,” or “Day Of The Dead,” because all these songs are just dying to be heard. Or they’re DEAD. Or they’re going to die soon! Let’s get to the countdown…
3) I WOULD DIE 4 U – Prince
One of the staples of Purple Rain, and one of his most iconic songs of the decade, starts out our countdown of DEATH tonight!
2) I JUST DIED IN YOUR ARMS TONIGHT – Cutting Crew
While this song has more to do with another NATURAL HUMAN PHENOMENON… ahem… than it does with death, we couldn’t forget it for tonight’s countdown.
1) WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE – Bon Jovi
It’s one of the many standout tracks from “Slippery When Wet,” and as rumor has it, the song was inspired by Bob Seger’s “Turn The Page” from early in Jon Bon Jovi’s songwriting career. While no one dies… which is a good thing… it certainly arouses feelings of the old west and a similar lifestyle lived by rock bands of the 80s. Enjoy!
