This is the START OUT OF HELL & ARRIVE TO HEAVEN topic.
Let's Go to Rock 'n' Roll!!!!!!

Because Of You (6)

I can't say more than it's a very average soft rock song of these times. I can't find excellent parts in lyrics and melody. Good, but anyone would sing it. The lyrics and the entire song is very short. Who is the muse? I know Meat has a "new" girlfriend. Is it about her?

My score: 6


Average: 8.32 (141.5/17)

Now i actually really like this one :D

Could be because hubby knows Steve Balsamo, who wrote it, but not just cos of that - i think Meat sounds good on this - this one would definately make the best single should it be released as such - i think it would appeal to most as it leans towards the 'pop' (or should that be 'poop' :lol: ) sound of today, and i think it would appeal to a wider audience for sure.

I give this a 8.5/10

If this song ever gets released over here in Holland as a single, and with a decent amount of promotion, I could see that it would be a hit to some degree. Not chart-topping, but somewhere between 10-20 should be doable.

Middle-of-the-roadish, upbeat chorus, and yeah, I kinda like it. 7.5/10.

Its a different type of song for Meat. I don't think it should be released as a single since there's better songs than BOY on the album. Pretty average song for me.

5/10

Because of You - so similiar to somehing else, but I do not know what!

Great lyrics by Rick Jude and Steve Balsamo, guitar playing superb, chorus has fabulous hook

10/10

Not one of my favourite tracks on the album.

I have some problem with the sentimentality of the song - "everything is wonderful and it is all because of you"! Get me the bucket please I am always jokingly saying when I listen to this song.

However there is some superb guitar playing which saves the song for me.

My score 6 out of 10

" Iwas so hypnotised by the smile in your eyes today.."

It may sound sappy, but it's how I feel about my wife.
A love song that hits the nail squarely on the head.

Good song but agree maybe not an instant success.

7/10 only because Meat makes the song sound good!!

Ya, it is a great song. My favourite part, would be the "How did I survive?" part. That really got me into the song. It came at the right part in the song, right after the brilliant guitar solo. I would rate this song 9.5/10.

(I also love that first part) I was so hypnotized.....

Excellent.

It's one of these songs once you hear it you have this deja vu feeling... but it sounds great and the melody carves on your mind!!

Not one of my favorites but it HAS just to be there! :wink:

7/10

Everytime I hear this song I think it should be played as end credit music to a romance/comedy film. Love the intro - as soon as I hear it I smile. This song makes me feel good, especially driving home from work after a busy day 9.5/10

Because of you means a lot to me especially the first line. I really was hypnotized someones eyes. And Iīm still, he knows this but he donīt like me that much. Love the lyrics and melody.

10/10

Just one of the common happy-to-be-in-love songs, the provocation of the feeling is better done than other songs of this style.
