    Lita Ford:

    " I went to a party last Saturday night, I didn't get laid, I got in a fight, Uh, huh, It ain't no big thing."

    Queen: "Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

    And Journey: "Just a small town girl. Livin' in a lonely world. She took the midnight train goin' anywhere."
