Greatest Classic Rock Songs by Great BandsBeatlesboy9
The Top Ten
The true testament to The Beatles' genius: John Lennon and Paul McCartney's combination of great songwriting, a classy production by George Martin, and, not to mention, one of Ringo Starr's best drum performances ever. The best song on Sgt. Pepper, an album of AMAZING songs.V 1 Comment
I'm listening to this song right now, so I kinda had to vote for it. Plus it's my favorite Pink Floyd song. - Doom
Arguably the best song by the greatest band of them all...
Easily one of the best progressive rock songs - AjklothV 1 Comment
Although "Won't Get Fooled Again" is slightly better, this is still a great song, with a cool synthesizer intro and a great performance by the entire band.
One of THE BEST songs I've heard. The Who did an awesome job on this one. Memorable guitar, and name five other rock songs that have a violin solo! Great!
A classic John groove paired with some interesting (and cryptic) lyrics. Although the Beatles have made better, this song is still a great track.
Most played Who song, but for good reason: the song is a classic in every sense of the word, with amazing performances by Moon on drums, Entwistle on bass, and Daltrey on vocals. Pete Townshend's greatest composition (and best synth work).
One of George's strongest songs, although not quite up to the Lennon-McCartney caliber - the band has done better (even on the White Album: see "Dear Prudence"), but this is still a solid effort. Plus, Eric Clapton on guitar!
Living in OK. , and then TX. , have to go with Top. Some of the country stations I listened to in Tx. Would sneak in a Top song occasionally.
