    Ozzy Osbourne / "Slow Down" / Bark At The Moon (7) / Dec 1983

    Artist: Ozzy Osbourne
    Original Album: Bark at the Moon
    Track: Slow Down

    This is a SotD if I've ever chosen one, because I'm not sure there's one that could more accurately speak to me after this week.

    "You seem to run around and round in vain /
    People are saying that you've gone insane /
    Tell me just what you're running from /
    One day you're here and the next you're gone"

    This is one of my favorite Ozzy albums. I bought this on vinyl right before Christmas of eighth grade (still have that copy). I could hardly stand to wait until I had enough money after hearing all the continuous promo play on the radio. That was the last time I got fired up over an album from radio airplay until Appetite for Destruction came along the summer before senior year.

    If you have this on the original release CD, or on vinyl, or on cassette and want to buy a remaster, don't get the 2002 remaster…
