Actually, their absolute best song is 'I Am A Rock', but that wasn't a hit single

The Moody Blues, while an awesome band, are a little like Rush; their music has a unique and loyal following, as well as strong sales, but their songs wouldn't be considered "main stream" until late in their career (when the songs were actually terrible compared to their early stuff - think "Wildest Dreams" or "The Voice" - commercial drivel).

*cough* Nights in White Satin *cough*

Anyway, if Rush can make the list (I suppose "Tom Sawyer" is the most accessible of their songs, but I can think of probably a half-dozen of their songs that are better, starting with "2112," "Vital Signs," and "Limelight"), then so can The Moody Blues.

I'm actually surprise Pink Floyd made the cut. They are somewhat similar to the afore mentioned groups. "The Wall" has many popular cuts, but its their early stuff that's the best. "Dark Side of the Moon" was and still is awesome. "Money" or "Time" are much better than "Comfortably Numb".

I actually prefer Wish You Were Here to Moon -- and I know I'm not the only one.

You're right, there may be one or two other people who share that opinion....

Both 'Wish You Were Here', and 'Animals' are generally regarded as duds by Pink Floyd fans and are generally ranked just above 'A Momentary Lapse of Reason' and 'The Division Bell' as the worst Pink Floyd albums.

"Rock" is incredibly boring musically.

Sure, and what is popular is what is good. 8-)

I was never a fan of Animals. I used to really like The Final Cut (and I still like "The Gunner's Dream") but I'm not a fan any more. I could listen to Wish any day though.

we have been hearing a lot of floyd in the last few weeks... cuz roger waters will be performing on tuesday... he will be doing the whole "wall" album

Quote:
The Wall was America's top-selling album of 1980, is one of the top-selling double albums of all time, and is still in the US Top 5 best-selling albums of all time. The Wall has been previously performed live in its entirety by Waters just 31 times,

Seriously, I'd have to go with Meddle as a real contender for Pink Floyd's best record, with Ummagumma also up there pretty high, but I'm a big fan of Atom Heart Mother and Saucerful of Secrets, too. I enjoy Dark Side of the Moon as much as the next guy, but I always considered it too easy. I wasn't a huge fan of Animals or Wish you Were Here. The Wall, I loved a lot. After that one, I didn't see much point, though I admit to listening to Momentary Lapse of Reason quite a bit when it came out.

did you already mention your metallica choice? i'm particularly brain dead today :mrgreen:

I didn't take a stand on this, no. It's a hard one for me. I might go with Blackened. Or Shortest Straw. Or And Justice for All. I dunno. Something from that record, to be sure, but it's just so great start to finish that picking one song is next to impossible.

hard to believe 'watchtower' was the highest charted single in the US for hendrix...and it was only #20

I'm wondering what the definition of Classic Rock is. If Like a Rolling Stone by Bob Dylan is included, that means going back to 1965. If we go back to 1965, then there are a number of Classic Rock hits (and singers) that are left out of this "Top 100".

Such as these ranging from 1965 to 1969:

The Supremes (Stop! In The Name Of Love, You Can't Hurry Love, You keep Me Hanging On, Love Is Here and Now You're Gone)
Steam (Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye)
Mama's and the Papa's (Monday, Monday, )
5th Dimension (Aquarious/Let The Sunshine In)
Aretha Franklin (Respect)
Righteous Brothers (You've Lost that Lovin' Feeling)
the Association (Cherish)
the Troggs (Wild Thing)
the Box Tops (The Letter)
Doors (Light My Fire)
Otis Redding ((Sittin On) The Dock of the Bay)
Sonny and Cher (I Got You Babe)

Moving into the 70s we have:

Four Seasons (December, 1963 (Oh What A Night))
Jim Croce (Bad, Bad Leroy Brown)
Carly Simon (You're So Vain)
Roberta Flack (Killing Me Softly With His Song)
Johnny Nash (I Can See Clearly Now)
Janis Joplin (Me and Bobby McGee)
Simon and Garfunkle (Bridge Over Troubled Water)
Jackson 5 (I'll Be There)

I did not know that. Heck, if I'd known it was his biggest hit, I'd have picked something else. Always liked Hey Joe.

i'm a little surprised there are only 173 remarks on the list...given that it has been going on all month... i assume they were inviting site traffic by running it...guess they didn't succeed ... still haven't figured out who it was that sat down to make the list in the first place...really couldn't find that anywhere in the article

Technically, Jimi Hendrix is a one hit wonder, he had one hit single, and in fact during most of his life, he was an 'unknown' and he only became famous in the last 1-2 years of his life.....everyone always mentions that Jimi Hendrix was the opening act for the Monkees on their first American tour, and he was rejected by the Monkees audience who didn't like his performances at all.
