Top Ten Cheap Trick Songs


The Top Ten

1 Surrender

Best song. They ever made

Over played yet very good - dyrdek114

A list most obviously voted on by post-menopausal women. The Flame? My Obsession? Top Ten? Where is The House is rocking' (with Domestic Problems) or Heaven Tonight? I'm telling you it's an all chick list.

Cheap trick is the greatest and this song proves it

2 I Want You to Want Me

This is clearly cheap tricks best song! It is insanely catchy and simple. Most people don't understand that even simple beats are hard to come up with especially ones like I want you to want me.

Pretty much everyone feels this way at some point in their life.

The live version rocks so hard! NOTHING is better!

The live version is the best

3 The Flame

My two year old son danced to this one in the store and we sang it together loud and clear as we danced in the living room -- a memory I'm keeping for ever!

This is clearly the Cheap Trick's number one song, how can it be in number two. The lyric and the tune of this song is too good.


Epic... Broken my heart... :(

This song is just magnificent. It has this amazing change of atmosphere - from totally positive to darker, almost haunting... Great song.

There driving me insaine,those men inside my brain.

It's simply melodious, sweet and beautiful. Makes you swoon over it. You'll fall in love with this piece of amazing.

I just loved how they have 'again'..with 'again' 'with again'..again and again.

Seriously guys this is one of their underrated songs, it's one of the best power ballads of the 80's. It was huge in Australia!
