Best Whitesnake Songs
Whitesnake is one of the most talented and, not surprisingly, popular rock bands in the history of music! Everyone knows their tracks, because such compositions as "Is This Love" or "Forevermore" have become golden classics of their genre. And the magical voice of David Coverdale... he enchants, captivates, forever cuts into the memory of the listener. Today's compilation is dedicated to the five cool and instantly recognizable hits of the group! Let's go!
Five of the best songs of Whitesnake!
"Is This Love" (1987)
This composition is considered the most famous "slow" of the group. Coverdale co-wrote it with guitarist John Sykes in the south of France. The song was originally intended for Tina Turner. In a 2017 interview, Coverdale admitted:
"...I still dream of hearing "Is This Love" performed by the charming Tina Turner..."
The video for "Is This Love" is hazy and rather sultry thanks to Tony Kitaine. Yes ... David's future wife is really beautiful. It is not surprising that he ran after her throughout the clip with the question: “Isn’t this love?”
By the way: the guys from Whitesnake became a kind of pioneers! It was they who opened the fashion for clips with seductive shots of beautiful girls, which significantly increased the interest of the viewer (in particular, male representatives).
Wings of the Storm (1989)
And this dynamic song adequately decorated the band's eighth studio album called "Slip of the Tongue". Curiously, because of the lyrics, many listeners found it similar to "Judgment Day" from the same record! "Wings of the Storm" tells a well-known lyric: a couple in love believes that their strong feelings can warm them even in the most difficult hour...
Guitar virtuoso Steve Vai deserves special attention! He, so to speak, added to the "dish" the missing "piquancy".
Sailing Ships (1989)
The measured and soulful "Sailing Ships" also saw the light of day as part of "Slip of the Tongue".
When listening to the composition, a very touching picture emerges of a man sending his beloved on his last journey ... Heartbroken, he asks her to take him with her ... He knows that her soul has a difficult journey, but sincerely believes that she will safely reach the best of all worlds!
"Looking for Love" (1987)
This song has an interesting history! At first, it was released only in Europe, and in the USA it got as part of the group's greatest hits collection only after ... 7 years! Perhaps for this reason the song is not as popular as the ones discussed above ... But it definitely deserves attention! As for the meaning of the lyrics, this is a kind of anthem of love! "Looking for Love" tells the story of a romantic in search of true love...
David Coverdale's piggy bank is full of songs about love and passion, about feelings and hope... As if drawing his own image, the leader of Whitesnake asked the age-old question in his songs: "Where can I find that very true love?" And now, it's done! Finally, Coverdale wrote lyrics about pure and bright, demanding nothing in return for love, in which he is ready to dissolve ...
