This is your purview and I love what you are doing here.
So, I have a question - Is this not the best Rock and Roll song ever?
If not, what is a better song?
It's definitely one of them. I play a lot of Stones if I'm in bars and that is the one that the die-hard fans really appreciate. If it's Zeppelin, then the fans want, "Hey Hey What Can I Do?".
Best of all-time? Who knows?
People have ranked 'Satisfaction" # 1 in the past.
Some people still say Stairway to Heaven. Back in Black? Crazy Train?
For me personally....
La Grange by ZZ TOP
Sultans of Swing by DIRE STRAITS
Every Breath You Take by THE POLICE
Runnin' With The Devil by VAN HALEN
If we switch the van halen one for the stones, I am with DJ.
There are so many. How about adding -
Born to be wild
I can see for miles and miles
And one you don't hear much of now -
Free electric band
Hundreds of em. A few of my favorites:
Don't Try to Lay No Boogie Woogie on the King of Rock and Roll Long - John Baldry.
Let Me Sleep on It - Meat Loaf.
Sunset Grill Don - Henley.
Welcome to the Boomtown - David & David.
One of Our Submarines - Thomas Dolby.
Wow, I thought I was the only one who even heard od David & David. Great posts.
Personally, I think the bridge of Every Breath You Take is my favorite all-time.
Since you've gone, I've been lost without a trace
I dream at night I can only here your face
I look around but it's you I can't replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep cryin' baby baby please...
It absolutely breaks my heart every time I hear it.
And it's not the words it's the aching way he sings it.
It's a painful longing I've never known in life, thank goodness.
People treat this like a stalker tune but I really think it's about ultimate heartache.
LA GRANGE is my choice though. Nothing rocks like that jam. You hear the drawl of the voice and you just know that the sweet drum roll is coming.....and then donnonna nonna nonna

To pay me back not just with HubLove but YOUR Favs follow this link and you can post your favorite music hubs from all over hubpages.com.
You are now officially insane in my book.
In honor of the occasion, I will write about you on my blog (again) lol
Exceeding expectations is all a DJ can do in the age of the self-mixing iPod.
I've just opened a New Game you might like Mark called What's That Song?
I would make no pretense that my top songs are actually the greatest of all time....they're just mine.
5) Gypsies in the Palace - Jimmy Buffett
4) Taking Care of Business - BTO
3) Shook Me All Night Long - ACDC
2) Levon - Elton John
1) Born to Run - The Boss
Good Point crash. That's exactly how I feel about my VH pick. I wouldn't call it everyone's best but it just takes me to real good place.
I have a theory about the song Satisfaction and why it has proven so durable but I will not waste it on a forum. Saving it for the book.
It's funny that you mention about saving it for the book. I've been conceptualizing trying to craft a book out of my hub pages. Call it something like The World According To Crash, or some such thing. I'd probably want to expand upon the hubs so there would be new material, but it could be fun!
I wouldn't put something on hubpages if I was using it for the book. All I give away are lists..
MY RULE OF THUMB
If there's something I wanna see or read on the internet and it's not there, then I have to create it myself!
Just like Sly Stone did when HE was a Disc Jockey but didn't hear any music he wanted to hear so he created it.
IT'S CALLED FUNK!
Thank You Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin !
Some great songs that I grew up with on this post.
Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
I'd now like to nominate the best song ABOUT Rock N Roll:
Rock and Roll I Gave You All The Best Years Of My Life - by fellow Aussie Kevin Johnson.
If we start talking about the songs ABOUT rock-n-roll - this one is da best, hands down http://youtube.com/watch?v=Tt_052kjuu0
