8 Spirit in Black - Slayer UListen to Sample
9 Under Your Black Sun - Adrian Borland

Great song! Adrian was so very underrated. Darn Shame!

Just so good. This should have just been as popular as any other of the 90's stuff. This is even better than some of the more heard of songs from this period in music, early 90's.

20 The Black Angel's Death Song - The Velvet Underground

Lou Reed and John Cale wrote this one together. It was their attempt to string words together for the fun of it rather than as a cohesive narrative. - Gg2000

44 Black Limousine - The Rolling Stones

From Tattoo You. It's their attempt to write a blues song like they did in their early days. - Gg2000

45 Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black) - Neil Young

I love the nasty sounding tone on the guitars and bass. It takes a lot of guts to do a record that way, especially nowadays. - Gg2000

UListen to Sample
46 Black Friday - Steely Dan

It's got sort of a blues edge to it, but (of course) Walter Becker and Donald Fagen add their own jazzy influences. - Gg2000

UListen to Sample
47 Baby's in Black - The Beatles

This one's got a strong country and western influence. It's interesting because it's written in 3/4 time as opposed to 4/4 time (which most bands both then and now use morethan any other time signature). - Gg2000
