"When We Was Fab" is a song by English musician George Harrison, which he released on his 1987 album Cloud Nine. It was also issued as the second single from the album, in January 1988. The lyrics serve as a nostalgic reflection by Harrison on the days of Beatlemania during the 1960s, when the Beatles were first referred to as "the Fab Four". Harrison co-wrote the song with Jeff Lynne, who also co-produced the track. The recording references the psychedelic sound that the Beatles had helped popularise in 1967, through its use of sitar, cello, and backwards-relayed effects. Harrison's former Beatles bandmate Ringo Starr is among the other musicians on the track.
In the United Kingdom, it peaked at number 25 on the UK Singles Chart, and in the United States, the song peaked at number 23 on Billboard magazine's Hot 100 chart. It was Harrison's last top 40 hit in the US, and the second such hit in which the lyrics reflect on his years as a Beatle – the other being "All Those Years Ago" (1981).

"A Hazy Shade of Winter" is a song by American music duo Simon & Garfunkel, released on October 22, 1966, initially as a stand-alone single, but was subsequently included on the duo's fourth studio album, Bookends (1968). It peaked at number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100.
In 1987, the Bangles were approached to record a song for the soundtrack of the film Less Than Zero. They chose to record a cover of "A Hazy Shade of Winter", which they had been performing live since at least as far back as March 1983.
Their cover, retitled "Hazy Shade of Winter", was a harder-edged rock song that removed most of the bridge section. The record, like the rest of the soundtrack album, was produced by Rick Rubin. After a fruitful but disappointing experience with David Kahne, the producer of their album Different Light (where they were given little input in the production of the songs), the group decided to take more control for the recording of this song, and they were given an additional producer credit. Michael Steele later commented that "we sounded the most on this record the way we actually sound live", and "If we hadn't been so messed up as a band, it could have been a turning point for us."
Lead vocals were performed jointly by all four members of the group, with a short solo led by Susanna Hoffs towards the end. This was a rare occurrence in The Bangles songs, as they mostly had just one member singing lead. Due to pressure from their record label, The Bangles removed the verse from the original song that contained the line "drinking my vodka and lime". According to liner notes on the Soundtrack album, Steve Bartek from the band Oingo Boingo played acoustic guitar on the track.
When released as a single in November 1987, "Hazy Shade of Winter" became a huge hit, surpassing the popularity of the original version, peaking at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, behind Tiffany's "Could've Been", and also number 11 in the UK. It was also a hit around Europe.

"Peace in Our Time" is a song that became a hit in the US and Canada for Eddie Money in 1989, and in the UK for Cliff Richard in 1993.

American rock singer Eddie Money released his version as a single in 1989 and included it on his album Greatest Hits: The Sound of Money. The single debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on December 2, 1989 and reached a peak position of number 11. It also reached number two Mainstream Rock and number 34 on the Adult Contemporary chart. In Canada, "Peace in Our Time" reached number three.

"Hard Luck Woman" is a song by American hard rock band Kiss and the lead single from their 1976 album, Rock and Roll Over. It was originally written by Paul Stanley as a possible track for Rod Stewart, but after the success of the ballad "Beth", Kiss decided to keep it for themselves as a follow-up. Stanley has stated his admiration and love of Stewart's music numerous times, and that "Hard Luck Woman" was inspired by Rod Stewart, in particular the songs "Maggie May" and "You Wear It Well".
Sung by Peter Criss, the single was an attempt to follow the success of the hit single "Beth" released earlier in the year by releasing another love song sung by Criss. It proved to be a Top 20 hit in the US, peaking at number 15.

Live From The Jungle is the second EP by American hard rock band Guns N' Roses. It was released in 1988.
The record was released in Japan only and features "Sweet Child O' Mine" from the album Appetite For Destruction plus tracks that had been previously released in 1987 on the 12" singles of "It's So Easy/Mr. Brownstone" and "Welcome To The Jungle". It appears to be self-titled, as no title apart from the band's name appears anywhere on the cover. However, the EP is often called Live from the Jungle, named so because part of the large red text on the album's obi strip reads ライブ・フロム・ザ・ジャングル ガンズ・アンド・ローゼズ ("Raibu furomu za janguru / Ganzu ando rozezu"), meaning "Live from the jungle: Guns N' Roses". This is a reference to the song "Welcome to the Jungle", even though the song itself doesn't appear on the EP. The record has been released in vinyl, cassette, and CD format.
Tracks one, four and five were recorded live at the Marquee Club in London on June 28, 1987. Track two and three sound like live recordings, but are actually studio recordings with overdubbed crowd noise. Track three was originally released on the EP Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide and later on the album G N' R Lies. Track 6 is the studio version from Appetite for Destruction. The cover features the banned Robert Williams artwork also used (but very briefly) for Appetite for Destruction.
