One of the greatest guitar riffs.
Easily top ten, simple yet unique, great song, terrific chords, why top ten? look around when its played, everybody is tapping a foot or bobbin their head.
Guitars AND Bagpipes, the song that started it all
By FAR the greatest rock song of all time. It is a discrace to have it even out of the top 5. - dburt
This song is what I'll call the most criminally underrated song in the history of humankind. Look at the position its in - 286. God! People, if you haven't tried out this song yet, I recommend you do. I'll assure you that you'll love it. It has such a tune, it could change my whole attitude. Rock can create magical stuff and this has to be the best of it. - SytachiRed
Awesome song with great tune! As old as it is, it still rocks!
It's hard to improve on the Beatles, but there is absolutely nothing else that sounds like this song...pure genius arrangement by Cocker.
This is a proper rock song when done by Cocker, too low on the list.
Amazing song that defines rock music!
The live version is way too epic, it made me fall in love with acdc and Angus.V 1 Comment
Harrison & Clapton at their best!
I think it should be in the top the Beatles are great but when mark knofler,eric clapton,prince and tom petty was amazing
Um...hello how has no kind thought of this by now. It is the all time best classic rock duet of all time. There isn't even a contender. This song is simply outstanding. From the amazing drum solo to the jaw dropping lyrics-come on guys this should be WAYY higher on the list.
No. Just...no. What's wrong with you people? Of course this should be higher...alongside a host of other Queen songs.
The magnum opus of Genesis, the piece that, at its time, was the song that all progressive bands would try to get even a bit close to its overall greatness. It's a very long song, which takes some people off of it, but if you have the patience to listen to the whole build up and the climax, your life will change.V 1 Comment
