Anyone that knows me, is probably really sick of my obsession with 80's bands. I'm sorry guys, but I love this stuff!!!

Winger is one of those bands I was introduced to in the late 80's with the song "Headed For a Heartbreak". By the time this song came out, I was already a huge fan of power ballads and this song was added to my monstrous list of favorites. This song, IMHO, is a stand out in the ballad category because of the lush production where you can hear each band member (80's production was the best). Reb Beach is a guitar beast!!!!!! Just in case you haven't heard it or seen the official video (Kip was so good looking back then).......

@DrMaddVibe you are so right! I saved that one for you to post :p


Winger's next album was also a commercial success even though the AOR scene was declining.

Can't Get Enuff


This song highlights Winger dabbling with progressive rock elements.
