Is this from your local radio station RJ? That would explain the extreme Springsteen bias. I find it hard to believe that he would have 2 songs ranked higher than all by the Stones.

Yes, this is from the largest Classic Rock formatted station in New York City (and I believe in the US). I totally agree with you about Springsteen. I'm a Jersey guy, but not a big Bruce fan. The Stones have many songs that rank higher than any Bruce song in my book.

..."In My Life" or "Wild Horses" after "Stairway" :doh:

Not to mention Patti Smithlessness... :P

Because The Night is on the list somewhere, but that's the only one. And it was written by Bruce. :P

"Because The Night" by Patti Smith Group did not make the list.

I just went through the list and it's not there, but I think it would have made the list if it went to #251.

I'm shocked that Crazy Li'l thing called LOVE didn't at the very least come in at 252!

Stairway to Heaven came in at #1.

Yep, the number one song played over and over!

The only song in history where a once great song is the indicator of a beginner guitarist.

My music store has a sign that reads,

"Feel free to try our guitars, just NO Stairway to Heaven!"

There's great achievement to that, unfortunately.

:D

They rank Jessica as the greatest song by the Allman Brothers? What about Statesboro Blues, Rambling Man, Midnight Rider or Whipping Post? I believe all of those songs are superior to Jessica.

As for Stairway To Heaven, it's still my favourite Zep song, although it certainly doesn't merit a position as the greatest rock song of all time.

I guess I'm alone in this, but if someone were to ask me what the greatest rock song of all time is, I would without question say Stairway.

I mean, I truly think that Stairway is a masterpiece of a song. Yea, sure, it's over talked about, and constantly built up, and overplayed in it's own way, but I think it's an incredible song.
