Hi guys! okay? So, in this article I will tell you the songs that I love: Guns N' Roses. <3

"November Rain"

Written by vocalist Axl Rose and released in June 1992 as the 5th single from the album Use Your Illusion I. It includes an orchestra in background sound and is one of the longest songs of the group's discography. The guitar solo in the song exceeds more than 1 minute in different versions and was ranked 6th on the list of "100 Greatest Guitar Solos" by Guitar World magazine in 2006. The story of the song was based on the relationship of Axl and his wife Erin Everly, with whom she married on April 28, 1990, but who separated 10 months later, after many fights and discussions, with the annulment of the marriage coming in January 1991. The lyrics of the song are full of passages that Axl declared to be references to his days with Erin.

The inspiration for the track, is usually associated with the problematic relationship between Axl Rose and his ex-wife Erin Everly, although this has never been stated on the album or in interviews. According to guitarist Duff McKagan, "Axl came out with great lyrics, seemingly out of nowhere, which of course became the tune and tune of that song." It was also stated by the band that Stradlin wrote the song for his ex-girlfriend Angela Nicoletti McCoy.

"Sweet Child O 'Mine"

The song was the first single from Guns N 'Roses to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks in September 1988. The song came by accident. Slash, Duff and Izzy were sitting in the living room by the fireplace (they had no TV), where Slash was playing the introduction of "Sweet Child O 'Mine" as Izzy and Duff played the chords behind her. Axl was upstairs in his bedroom, and on hearing them he began to write the lyrics. The "sweet child" referred to in the song is Erin Everly, Axl's girlfriend at the time and her future wife, whom he even offered half the royalties for the song, claiming he could never have composed the lyrics without her as inspiration.

"Don't Cry"

Axl and Izzy wrote the song lyrics in about 5 minutes. Ron Thal, one of the guitarists of the new Guns, played the song instrumentally during the "Chinese Democracy World Tour 2006-2007." In 1992, the song stayed for 2 months in the Billboard Top 10, staying for 3 weeks in the first place of the list. "Do not Cry" is the segment of the "Illusions Trilogy," according to Rose. Along with "Estranged" and "November Rain", it forms a narrative inspired by the tale "Without You" of Del James, based on the relationship of Axl and Erin Everly.
