Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” was written by James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, and Kirk Hammett. Nightmares and things that go “bump” in the night. It has by far the most radio play of all of Metallica’s songs.
Pat Boone recorded a hilariously upbeat version of this for his *In a Metal Mood* album. He sang lyrics like “Dreams of war, dreams of fire” and “Exit lights” in an almost laughing manner. The music was jazzy and Vegas-esque, and the opening guitar riff was noticeably shorter.
