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.

When the radio station was advertising for people to participate in the voting for this year, they said "We're doing this to find out who is Number 2, because we know what always comes in number 1."

Stairway To Heaven wouldn't break into my personal top 100...maybe even my top 500.

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

The whole list of 1043, not the top 250.

Oh. Ok, that's good to know.

I didn't know the list was a total of 1043 songs.

Ron's original post didn't mention that.

What would be the web site that I can view all 1043 songs?

I'm assuming the radio station's channel is 104.3

Yep. You can get it streamed from their website. They also have lots of great interviews, photos, concert footage, etc. They also give online access to HD Radio stations throughout the country.

De gustibus et coloribus non est disputandum.

I say that's a list of great music, in the wrong order ;)

That's the reason why I listen to similar lists on my local radio stations: great music!

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.
