Spectre General "Hunger" from the animated Transformers movie soundtrack. That chorus takes me back to being 10: skateboarding (badly), playing tennis-racket guitar and thinking about girls.

Possibly too metal for this thread, but Tredegar's song "Dead to Rights" is catchy as hell.

The CD version of their album has a lot of filler on it, yeah, that song is pretty glammy. I guess they just wanted to put every song they recorded on one CD, which is what was often done for a lot of NWOBHM era bands.

Actually even the song "Duma" has a bit of glam in some parts, except it's awesome.

Well, don't you think this might count for more singers when it comes to high voice singers? Midnight and John Arch for instance are/were high wailers. Their strength didn't lie exactly around that area either though I do agree Jim Gillette sounds rather laugable from what I've heard.

And I'll check that Winter Rose stuff. With luck it might be better than Dream Theater. :p

70s glam is the best glam.

Bang a gong, get it on.

Well Winter Rose sounds like a fine band from what I've heard. Not to mention LaBrie sounds way more in his element here than on his Dream Theater stuff.

The main riff and chorus of Uncle Tom's Cabin by Warrant are catchy as fuck. And that riff is pretty metal to boot.

Thought you'd like the drum solo from 8:45 on.

If we are talking about catchy riffs and choruses, you guys are totally missing out if you haven't heard:

Winger - Seventeen

Warrant - Cherry Pie
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjyZKfdwlng

Tigertailz - Living Without You (The video is embarrassingly cheesy, but still a good song)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrUoPJNIXpQ

King Kobra - Hunger

Decadence Dance by Extreme. More glam than some of their other stuff, just as catchy.
