Love most of the songs listed so far.
To the discussion I would add:
"Barracuda"/Crazy on You." by Heart
"Black Betty" by Ram Jam
Stop Hey What's That Sound" by Buffalo Springfield
GREAT Picks!!! I agree with Heart, they had some excellent music! However, I prefer Magic Man, to Barracuda or Crazy on You. Mostly because Barracuda
never really was my favorite song, and Guitar Hero ruined "Crazy on You." for me... But I prefer the Guitar in "Magic Man". The strings just
bend for the intro (what 30 seconds)? and its got a rocking beat. I like it anyway.
Black Betty is also a great pick! We used to do Black Betty Shots, and everytime they sang "Black Betty" we had to do a shot. We pretty much had to
have a bottle or two just sitting there ready. With one person pouring out the shots, and everyone else bracing themselves for it! And if you missed
one, you had to do two. Great Song, great beat, I've always liked itt.
Any Protest song from the 60's would be a great addition. "Eve of Destruction" - Barry McGuire - is another of my favorites. His raspy,
smoking-since-he-was-12-voice, realy suits the song.
"I feel like I'm fixin' to Die" - Country Joe and the Fish - is also one of my absolute favorites!!! I love the Recording from
Woodstock...."Give me an F, Give me a U...." etc. A great be FU to the war in Vietnam, from everyone at Woodstock. Love it!!
I almost forgot about Eve of Destruction! Nice choice there, and you absolutely have to add Country Joe and the Fish if you're talking protests, I
agree that they have to be included in the discussion.
As for Heart, Magic Man is really good, but I've never played Guitar Hero at all, so Crazy on You remains one of my favorites. That acoustic intro
she plays (never the same way twice from what I understand) is a great opener, and is such a stark contrast to the heavier electric sound to come.
Barracuda has a killer riff that I just can't get enough of. If I had half the talent with a guitar that Nancy Wilson has I'd be a very happy man,
I am surprised that I do not see any David Bowie on here. I am just appalled that no one has put Ziggy Stardust on here.:shk::shk: I mean, what kind
of list would this be without some Bowie?
Here's Bowie and Fame.
Now, I know that we have some Clapton on here already. Not only is this song one of Clapton's best, if not the best. I have to post this song
to bring up a question. If any one of us were to die today, would we know each other when and if the rest of us get to heaven?
great idea carrot
although i am usually confused by terms like
rocknroll songs or pop songs
i never really judge songs for a certain genre.
i only can say: i like them and sometimes i also can say why!
you are right carrot bob dylan, especially blowing in the wind is an absolutly MUST for such a list!
usually i am not so very aware what songs i really like, but since i read through the thread and thinking of it, i become more and more aware that
there are certain songs i absolutly can.t live without.
like rush mentioned don mclean "american pie" - my second bf introduced it to me , and since then it always gave me company, i love don.s version
but strongly dislike madonna.s!
and hotel california is one of my dream songs, put it on itunes, switch on the loudspeakers and my mind is away
@gimme ELO outstanding!!
my certainly imperfect list:
peter gabriel solsbury hill
really love the rhythem
saw him performing it in berlin on the secret world tour
when it comes to the beatles, i am never sure what to pick.
yesterday, let it be, lady madonna (the later mabye because a fellow student was able to performe it so brilliantly on piano)
don.t let us miss the rolling stones
no party without it
honky tonk woman
the mamas and papas
simon and garfunkel
a song a good friend introduced to me
kansas: dust in the wind
again memories of school parties - although i am not that old
but these songs helped to get closer to each other
A whiter shade of pale
the moody blues
nights in white satin
protest towards education
pink floys another brick in the wall
