Most of the songs you posted aren't AOR at all...

Oh well... disregard them. I was just thinking of music from 80s movie soundtracks. I guess we can't stray from the strict AOR and Rocky music description at all...

That Kansas song is great. I never really thought of them playing in this style. I don't really know them much beyond the classic rock radio hits.

Keep this stuff coming, I've been enjoying it all.

Kansas changed quite a bit over time due to different players and shuffling of line ups.

Not that I know of. It's Steve Hackett and Steve Howe doing radio friendly AOR and for a brief time was inescapable. They also had the song, When the Heart Rules the Mind.

Yeah, I never knew either. Ralph Santolla turned me on to them when I was at his place in Tampa. I was shocked. Last month, I found that album on vinyl for $.99 Smile

If I had to pick just one song to fit the "AOR" description of this thread...
it would be "Separate Ways" by Journey. I can imagine Rocky preparing for a fight or dealing with a relationship problem with that song in the background.

More of a "Rock Ballad" than AOR, but I always thought this would fit in the right situation:
