    • 9. Brighton Rock by Queen the solo, love the album.
    • 8. Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin
      Such a laid-back, pretty song which soon gets heavier without realising it.. Amazing...again the song flows into one big masterpiece.
    • 7. Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd
      The ultimate 'lets get stoned' album....defines Floyd and 'music'.
    • 6. More Than A Feeling by Boston
      Sorry...but it's just such a pretty, happy guitar riff.
    • 5. White Queen by Queen
      One of my fav Queen songs from their best album...Flows perfectly...listen to the layers, and the guitar solo, beautiful.

    • 10. Renegade by Styx
      I hate dancing, but I dance when I hear this.
    • 9. Godzilla by Blue Oyster Cult
    • 8. Peace Frogs by The Doors
      Very pleasing song.
    • 7. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
      You'd have to be living under a rock to not have heard this tune, and you'd have to be on crack to dislike it. Wayne's World made this song as famous as it is today, and even without Wayne's World, this song is great in every aspect.
    • 6. Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd
      One of many amazing Pink Floyd tunes, everything about this song is just so great.
    • 5. Highway Star by Deep Purple
      Just a great song to hear on a bad day.
    • 4. The Ocean by Led Zeppelin
      Another Zeppelin masterpeice. This song is pretty underrated, too.
    • 3. Pinball Wizard by The Who
      Such a fun song to say the least.
    • 2. Freebird by Lynyrd Skynyrd
      Such a well put together song. This song blows Sweet 'Home Alabama' out of the water any day of the week.
    • 1. Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin
      It simply gives me goosebumps whenever I hear it. Such a masterpeice, and clearly the greatest song ever recorded.

    There are so many other songs that I probably forgot to mention. Some bands that I'd also like to give recognition to are Black Sabbath, Boston, Supertramp, Montrose, Nazareth, Rush, AC/DC, Kansas, Cream, Jethro Tull, Grand Funk Railroad, Ted Nugent, Jimi Hendrix, Steve Miller Band, Bad Company, and a bunch more.

    • 10. Bring It On Home by Led Zeppelin
      Yeh k dog I completely agree.
    • 9. We're Gonna Groove by Led Zeppelin
      Although this wasn't released on CD until 1982, it was played at Zeppelin concerts throughout, for proof check out the DVD and you will see it was played at the 1970 Royal Albert Hall concert on Disc 1.
    • 8. Heartbreaker by Led Zeppelin
      Incredible energy.
    • 7. White Summer by Led Zeppelin
      Again, it was played at the Royal Albert Hall concert of 1970 on the DVD... Page is god-like.
    • 6. Bron-Y-Aur Stomp by Led Zeppelin
      Awesome folk kinda acoustic song.
    • 5. Dazed And Confused by Led Zeppelin
      Truly amazingness by all members of the band, especially live.
    • 4. No Quarter by Led Zeppelin
      This song IS the 70s.
    • 3. Over The Hills And Far Away by Led Zeppelin
      Amazing energy, great transition, great solo.
    • 2. Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin
      C'mon... it's 'Stairway', am I right?
    • 1. Achilles Last Stand by Led Zeppelin
      Absolutely amazing, how could you get any better?

    Pink Floyd had a few decent songs, and 'Hotel California' is a good song, but nobody even comes close to Zeppelin. You could take any Zeppelin song recorded EVER and they would all be the top songs on my list, everyone else comes after.
