Top 5 Favorite Songs of All Time.

Sun May 22, 2011 9:05 pm

Okay... So maybe the Fav. lists from the 70s was too inclusive. I thought a lot of us liked Classic Rock from that era, but apparently not. SORRY! So please list your top 5 favorite songs from any decade, any genre.

1. Simple Man by Lynryd Skynyrd
2. Brandy by Looking Glass
3. Ziggy Stardust by David Bowie
4. The Last Resort or Life in the Fast Lane by The Eagles
5. Anything That's Rock and Roll Is Alright by Tom Petty/Heartbreakers

I like a lot of classic rock songs from the '70s but I dunno any albums mainly cause I was born in 1986.

I like such an eclectic mix that I have a hard time picking five overall so I'll cheat and list my five from various genres without repeating artists.

Lonely Ol' Night - John Mellencamp (and most of John's other '80s songs)
Thunder Road - Bruce Springsteen
You Give Love A Bad Name - Bon Jovi
Gimme All Your Lovin' - ZZ Top

'60s Rock:
House of the Rising Sun - The Animals
Somebody To Love - Jefferson Airplane
Go Now - The Moody Blues
There's A Place - The Beatles
I Get Around - The Beach Boys

Oldies:
Soul and Inspiration - The Righteous Brothers
I Only Have Eyes For You - The Flamingos
C'mon Everybody - Eddie Cochran
Most Ricky Nelson songs
Sleepwalk - Santo and Johnny


Country:

...I've liked a LOT of songs through the years, but...these are the only 2 songs that I've REALLY connected to strongly for some reason...and the reason I'm such a Blue October fan today... 8-)

P.S. ...they're VERY emo, don't listen if you're easily depressed... ;)





...3-5 would be about a 250 way tie... ;) :D
