181 If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot

Outstanding song. I'm not quite sure it belongs in this category, but I sure admire the musical taste of whoever posted it.

182 Of a Lifetime - Journey

184 You Can Call Me Al - Paul Simon

I'm not really sure why, I just really love this song

185 Rock and Roll - Led Zeppelin

LED ZEP. COVERED A LOT OF BLUES TERRITORY OVER THEIR CAREER BUT VERY FEW "ROCK AND ROLL" SONGS. PLANT IN PARTICULAR LOVED THE MUSIC ELVIS AND ALL THE OTHER MEMBERS GREW UP WITH 50'S ROCK. THIS WAS THEIR TRIBUTE TO THE ARTISTS THAT CAME BEFORE THEM AND A VERY FINE ONE. ITS ALL IN THE TITLE.

Love this song

186 18 and Life - Skid Row
187 Tuesday's Gone - Lynyrd Skynyrd V 1 Comment
188 Spirit in the Sky - Norman Greenbaum
189 Louie, Louie - The Kingsmen

This is real rock music. Ever since the Beatles became popular in the States some time in 1964, real music made by the Kingsmen has little to no fame. This song is underrated, and it is one of the best mainstream rock songs of all time.

Most covered rock song of all time. Simple and raw, but hugely influential.

Nobody knows what the hell he's saying, but a catchy song nonetheless. - Evant

190 Jack & Diane - John Mellencamp
191 Telegraph Road - Dire Straits

This one should be so high up in this list :) it's just a perfect song. Mark Knopfler's work on the guitar is outstanding and the lyrics are great.

196 Jump - Van Halen

Amazing song that defines rock music!

The Best of the Best
