This is about kissing up to the head honchos in entertainmen t . You have to kiss a** to make it on show biz
STROKE ME!
Always loved Squire.
Fading fast , oh no , gone .
This is a classic and then along comes Eminem who totally desecrated it in his pointless raps. Oh I forgot hip hop stealing tracks once again because they are talentless to write their own material.
I agree with Vicky
companies*
Again, it's about musical record companying "stroking" (swindling) new artists into something that will make them money.
Shake yo body
isn't there a remix of this? comment on my page telling me the name of the song please



peace
all reminds me of blades of glory with will ferell lol but not before
Stroke!
Soo dance worthy...the slow, hip grinding kind. Great song, along with his 'my kinda lover'
Gracenote messed up again.
Billy Squier was like a bridge between late 70s to early 80s rock. Terrifically underrated his star shined at the top brightly but for only a short time. Keep in mind he was strong enough to have Def Leppard as his opening act (the last time they opened for anyone) at the beginning of their Pyromania tour. That tour was like getting two headliners for the price of one!

tdp, I will agree that Squier is better than AC/DC or ZZ Top. That doesn't mean I don't like them, though. It's just that Billy has more talent as a hard rocker.
Pandora is weird like that.
tdp1118 is nuts ACDC rocks and i will take it any day rathre then Billy Squire
Billy Squire is SOO much better than ACDC or ZZ Top... A different catagory all together! Please Pandora, dont make me listen to Bon Scott Strain his voice so badly (Sing) any more. Brian Johnson was O.K. at best.... So, again i BEG you pandora.... Please stop the s**tty noise! Please?!
sweet.
THIS IS A AWESOME SONG
sexy a** song f**k ya
nof_ingway
CLASSIC!
I didnt know it was about record companys, I thought it was about another type of stroke and not a heart attack.
Wow, the memories!
F'n LOVE this song! Pumps me up! (no pun intended lol)
donnagay1
oh man, still love to dance to this song...
This song is about record companies "stroking" their musicians for money
This song is like walking sex.
I thought a "stroke" was a medical condition.

Just keep your "contributio n s " by YOUR side!
This song defines "Guilty Pleasure."
