Best April Wine Songs

Hammer64

I've been an April Wine fan since hearing "You Could've Been A Lady" in '76. I've seen them live twice and they've become my favorite band. Myles Goodwin is one of the most underappreciated musicians in rock history. I know their music well and feel like I've compiled a credible list.

The Top Ten

Roller

The lead guitar in this song is the centerpiece. Very well done.

2I Like to Rock

Who doesn't have chills run down their spine when they hear the opening riff slowly build and then take you on a "right between the eyes" ride of full on, no nonsense rock n' roll? The combo riffs of "Daytripper", "Satisfaction", and their own at the end are pure genius and caps off the song in style. Enough said.

Just Between You and Me
3Just Between You and Me

You can call this a ballad if you want but it still has that hard edge to it. Great song.

Sign of the Gypsy Queen
4Sign of the Gypsy Queen

Another gem from one of the best rock albums ever, "Nature Of The Beast".

5Tonight Is a Wonderful Time to Fall In Love

This tune also leans toward the ballad side but satisfies your rocker side at the same time.


Future Tense
6Future Tense

Probably the most unappreciated Wine song, this is an all out assault on the senses. If you're not ready for some serious rock n' roll, then don't bother spinning this one.

7You Could've Been a Lady

This is probably the one that put them on the map in the states. Classic rock song with all the elements of an April Wine song.


Shotdown
8Shotdown

Another unappreciated jewel that for some unknown reason is getting way too little airplay in recent years.

9Rock Myself to Sleep

Great lyrics that tell her you still want her and the sentiment is driven home by a powerful riff. Excellent tune.


Anything You Want, You Got It
10Anything You Want, You Got It

Straight forward, hide the women and children, no holds barred rock n' roll. Classic Wine.
