            Great minds think alike apparently... I agree with all the bold songs, they could have just as easily ended up on my list.

                      I wanted to add some newer classics that I think will be around for a long time:

                      FreeBird - Lynyrd Skynyrd (there's like 5 guitar parts in here. Ridiculous)

                      You Shook Me All Night Long - AC/DC (the cleverest sex song I ever heard.....and strangely danceable)

                      Fight The Power - Public Enemy (do I need to explain this?)

                      Losing My Religion - R.E.M. (a mandolin in pop music? BRILLIANT!)

                      Photograph - Def Leppard (pop meets metal for the first time. And they like each other)

                      Comfortably Numb (the solo alone would have been a hit...monstrous) - Pink Floyd

                      Nothing Compares 2 U - Sinéad O'Connor (Prince's version is better, but this one is more memorable)

                      Waterfalls - TLC

                      You Oughta Know (a moment of true honesty on the radio) - Alanis Morissette

                      Jump - Van Halen (the first American hard rock song to not only incorporate synths, but t use them as a lead instrument)

                      Like A Virgin - Madonna (remember, it was 1984 when she was singing this)

                      Every Breath You Take - The Police (subversively cool. You know it's about being a stalker, right?)

                      I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston (old song, brilliant delivery. Sad how she has wasted her talent the last 10 years or so).

                      When Doves Cry - Prince (this song has no bass guitar. And yet, it works. Prince perhaps is a true musical genius. Plus, the lyrics are so great considering the subject matter)

                      Walk This Way - Run-D.M.C. w Tyler & Perry (the first true rap hit, Sugarhill Gang not withstanding, because they got played on Top 40 radio, not just in the clubs and on teh dance and R&B stations, like the Gang did. Without this song, there is also no nu metal, which generally incorporates elements of hip-hop).

                      One - U2 (the best thing U2 has written. Not their most popular, but their best).

                      Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses (showed that real dirty, street level rock could be successful, as long as it was honest. Plus, that guitar intro is right up there with Stairway, Smoke on the Water, Johnny B Goode, and Freebird in terms of greatness).

                      Billie Jean - Michael Jackson (he is a freak, but this is the best song on his best album. The production is brilliant. The first black artist to get MTV and Adult Contempory radio exposure while still doing dance and R&B based music.

                      Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana (I hate this band, and I hate this song. I think it helped regress rock music. But it changed not only rock, but pop culture as well. You cannot deny it's place in rock history).

                      Everybody's gotta elevate from the norm...

                            I'm sure I'll think of more...
                            IMO I don't think The Beautiful People by Manson was better then The Dope Show. I also think that death blooms was a better song by Mudvayne. and invesco there's no way back in black was ACDC's best song IMO.

                              I'd go with Live Wire, or possibly Touch Too Much.


                              Live Wire is simply epic.


                              I might, ona good day, say that actually, their best song is also on the Back in Back album. Shoot to Thrill.
