    • 10. Stayin' Alive by Bee Gees
      You know u liked it!!!
    • 9. I Was Made For Lovin' You by KISS
      So KISS made a disco album, wanna fight about it?
    • 8. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
      Gotta love Freddy.
    • 7. Pigs by Pink Floyd
      Still one of my favorite albums.
    • 6. Hello Again by The Cars
      Elliot Easton is a genius.
    • 5. I Can't Quit You Baby by Led Zeppelin
      Some of Page's best work.
    • 4. Ziggy Stardust by David Bowie
      A great album with a ridiculously long name.
    • 3. Can't You Hear Me Knocking by Rolling Stones
      It's been a favorite of mine for years.
    • 2. Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd
      Only contains one of the greatest guitar solos of all time.
    • 1. Owner Of A Lonely Heart by Yes
      The keyboard just blows me away.

    Not being born until 1990 doesn't give me much respect when it comes to knowledge and interest in classic rock. But I'm a true fan and I could sit here all day making these lists with different songs everytime. I just love music so much, it's my world. I've started a vinyl collection, and it's getting decently large.

    • 5. Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac
    • 4. Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffett
    • 3. Hotel California by The Eagles

    By: Darin James
    • 10. Highway To Hell by AC/DC
      AC/DC's last album with Bon Scott, may he rest in peace.
    • 9. Seeds Of Memory by Terry Reid
      Terry Reid, who was originally chosen to be the lead singer of Led Zeppelin but declined, wrote this song years ago and the song still kicks butt...along with many others he has written.
    • 8. Ace Of Spades by Motorhead
      For all you metalheads! Black Sabbath is constantly receiving credit for pioneering heavy metal. That's really not true. Motorhead pioneered heavy metal. Black Sabbath just opened the door for 'em.
    • 7. Cocaine by Eric Clapton
      Originally done by J.J. Cale, 'Cocaine' is a classic song that Clapton brought to a wider audience. It's a great song.
    • 6. Fat Bottom Girls by Queen
      Hands down! Probably the coolest Queen song ever. The vocal harmonization is excellent and the guitar riff is really kickass.
    • 5. Burning For You by Blue Oyster Cult
      Of course Blue Oyster Cult was a great band but the band is really known for '(Don't Fear) The Reaper'. Blue Oyster Cult has many great songs and this is one of them.
    • 4. Lay It On the Line by Triumph
      Another great song you just want to turn up while you're driving.
    • 3. Hold The Line by Toto
      Just a cool song by a band I could care less about.
    • 2. Fight The Good Fight by Triumph
      Simply a great song from an overlooked band.
    • 1. Give Me Shelter (It's Just A Shot Away) by The Rolling Stones
      Keith and Brian complimented each other more on this song then any other song the two wrote before Brian's early death.

    • 10. New Pony by Bob Dylan
      B side of a single in the mid 70's, I cannot remember which one. It's off an album, 'The Times Are Changing' is included on it ....
    • 9. Chrome Sitar by T Rex
      Most of Trex's songs are very good, this one sticks in my mind all the time since I listened to it on the B side of New York City.
    • 8. Wear A Fast Gun by Wizzard
      This was on the album Wizzards Brew, none were released as a single to my knowledge. Typical of Roy Wood's experiments with different instruments.
    • 7. Starbird by Manfred Mann's Earth Band
      Typical 70's stuff. B side of 'Davy's On The Road Again'...or was it 'Blinded By The Light'? Well whichever, but both were released and 'Starbird' was my fave of the three songs and all were great.
    • 6. Living Thing by ELO
      This song is the best of ELO's stuff including '109538 Overture'..debut single, ticket to the moon, queen of the hours, well almost all of ELO's music is my fave.
    • 5. If You Go Away by Terry Jacks
      Play this after 'She's Gone'!!! I think this is much better than 'Seasons In The Sun'.
    • 4. She's Gone by Black Sabbath
      This must be the best softie Sabbath has made. It's the B side of 'Never Say Die'. Play this when your bird has flown the nest...Tears.....
    • 3. Catch The Rainbow by Rainbow
      The live version of this is fantastic, ten times better than the original one. But one must find the live version that I have to disagree or agree.
    • 2. Hotel Carlifornia by Eagles
      This is excellent stuff... So where was he? In heaven or hell?...Or both? Was the beast the devil??? Who knows but the Eagles... lol
    • 1. No Time by The Move
      This reminds of the sea, don't ask me why it just does. Very haunting sound, my all-time favourite from the album California Man.
