“Dream Warriors” by Dokken

Top Metal Songs of the 80′s - #14

I lie awake and dread the lonely nights
I’m not alone
I wonder if these heavy eyes
Can face the unknown
When I close my eyes I realize
You’ll come my way
I’m standing in the night alone
Forever together

The great thing about Dokken, and specifically George Lynch, is that he makes the simplest things sounds incredibly cool. I’ve always loved how sinister this song sounds, thinking that it’s in some outrageous key or something and the riff must be complex, but looking at the music the other night, I was able to play the bulk of it reasonably well within about 15 minutes.

The solo, however, is another story altogether.
