Thanks Lucky. :grin: It's not really true. I'd just hate to think that my badmouthing Zeppelin at times would cause any backlash against the song. I doubt it though.

It's a tough one. I'm pondering over my Ten now !

The Beatles' votes are certainly being split.

We might finish up without any of theirs in the Ten !

:P

It doesn't matter much to me :)

I am just a poor boy

But I guess that's just the way the story goes

Someday when I'm lonely

I'll meet you up there where the path runs straight and high.

And as we wind on down the road,

We're gonna talk and laugh our time away,

And I'll ask you, hey mister, have you seen Pictures of Lily?

A Spot The Song Medley ! Very good Dappled. :)

And as we wind on down the road - I used to think it was 'and there's a wino down the road'. Robert Bloody Plant should enunciate his words better.

I think it's got enough votes now Katie. This reminds me of the 'bad old Top Tens' - Zeppelin, Floyd, Hendrix, Doors, Who - people voting for the Artists, not the songs. I don't mean you ! Although I don't mind if anyone wants to vote for my Who nomination (thanks Seeker) - not really one of their Big Hits (in the U.S. anyway).

As much as I think it is the greatest song of all time, it looks like STH might not make #1, so I'll put one of my favourites ahead of it to see if anything can beat it. :)

I am impressed to see that some people have voted for very few or no songs by the artists that have multiple #1s in our top tens - but I won't be one of them! :neener:

1. Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

2. Stairway to Heaven - Heavy Blimp

3. One - U2

4. Heartbreaker - Lead Balloon

5. Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker) - The Rotating Boulders

6. I Am The Walrus - The Bugs

7. Going to California - Plumbous Airship

8. Lola - The Kinks

9. Everybody Hurts - R.E.M.

10. Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm - Crash Test Dummies

----------------------------

11. Yesterday - The Insects

12. Brown Sugar - The Revolving Rocks

13. Strawberry Fields Forever - The Quarrymen

14. Devil Went Down to Georgia, The - Charlie Daniels Band

15. Roadhouse Blues - The Doors

16. Heart Shaped Box - Nirvana

17. Snow ((Hey Oh)) - Red Hot Chili Peppers

18. Fire - Jimi Hedrix (Who's Jimi Hedrix? :neener: )

19. Fight For Your Right - The Beastie Boys

20. Knowing Me, Knowing You - Abba

21. Kiss - Prince

Those are all the songs I have heard from this list. Please excuse my creative band name changes. :)

Just a gentle reminder that there are still one or two (or seven) members who are still to vote :)

Don't worry, you still have time! I justed wanted to say it, since I already saw a few of them online today :)
