iTunes Editors’ Notes

Billy Squier is one of the most underrated rockers of any era. The video for “Rock Me Tonite” with its pink satin sheets and over-exaggerated body movements turned Squier’s career into a punch line, but it never should have derailed the popularity of a man so possessed of great talent. The only complaint with this collection would be that it leaves too much out. Squier’s first three albums — The Tale of the Tape, Don’t Say No and Emotions In Motion — are all near-perfect. The first album is skipped over here for the radio-smash brilliance of “In the Dark,” “The Stroke” and “My Kinda Lover” before working towards “Everybody Wants You” and “Rock Me Tonite.” These songs are among the best of their era. Even later solo work from completely ignored albums feature solid tunes with “Don’t Say You Love Me” and “She Goes Down” that suffer only from their rock clichés. A cowbell, really? This collection knows what fans want and features two live cuts of beloved Squier tunes “Everybody Wants You” and “The Stroke.”

Billy Squier

The true best collection is the Billy Squier Anthology. That has the best tracks from all is days with Capitol including "Lonley Is The Night" and "Fall For Love" for the Signs of Life album. I don't think that is in print any longer but can still be found on the web.
This collection is decent and nice to include two live tracks. Glad to see Billy getting exposure again in a variety of Hip Hop songs too. If the "Rock Me Tonight" video didn't end is career, we could have gotten better music from him than what came after Signs Of Life.

Many point to Billy Squier as early-'80s rock personified — an era when he and many of his peers tempered hard rock with pop melodicism — and by adding just the right amount of posing and posturing for the newly constructed MTV set, he scored a string of arena rock anthems and power ballads. But Squier did not enjoy overnight success as it took many years and several failed bands before he hit paydirt as a solo artist. Born on May 12, 1950, in Wellesley Hills, MA, Squier began playing...
