101Urgent - Foreigner

Should be much higher. That sax solo is magnificent, and is so high pitched on a tenor, wow, As a sax player for years, this is a big, great song

Best use of sax since Baker Street. The song just oozes raw lust!

Forgotten song one of their best. Best of this lineup.

104Lay It On the Line - Triumph

Needs to be higher

105When the Levee Breaks - Led ZeppelinV1 Comment
106Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

What is this song doing all the way down here? Should be at least in the top 20.

Guys, how can this song be missed- quite surprising! Should be figured in the list of top five songs ever..

Get this higher. What a crime to be 86.

YYZ is a masterpiece without lyrics. It deserves to be on this list. The amazing instrumentalists really stood up on this song.

This song is the second best classic rock song of all time ("Stairway to Heaven" is the greatest).

Great vocals. Calm but powerful. Can listen to it 100 times and will always sound great

This song is one of the best known songs in the world!
