Top Ten Greatest Melodic Rock Songs

JimmyzzzX

The Top Ten

1 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

This song deserves to be in #1! Pink Floyd was one of the greatest bands ever on this planet... This song is just perfect *-* the lyrics... The melody... The vocals... The instrumental, and, specially, the guitar (dude, that guitar solo rocks! ), and this song is still one of the greatest hits on 2012!

Amazing amazing guitar track.. Especially the guitar outro in Pulse2.

Deserves to be the 4th on the list.. of course! - JimmyzzzX

If Pink Floyd is a drug then I am a super addict.
