Ok, so Norm is looking for the then "greatest songs of rock and pop music" which means not so much your favorite, but the best. Because, let's face it, not everyone thinks that Shellac's Prayer to God is a great song. In fact, I'm probably the only one who does.What's pop/rock defined as?
I won't be including country music (or jazz, blues etc.), but I will count up your submissions, whatever they are. You want Tammy or Dolly, Ella or Billie or Louis? You got it. You're free to define your own boundaries. Your songs may be either singles or tracks off albums. However, here's one restriction. I'm asking for versions or renditions - not just titles. So for example, if you were going for 'Mr Tambourine Man', you would need to specify whether it's a version by Bob Dylan, by The Byrds, or whoever.
Well, that's what you have to go with. Norm doesn't have comments, so you must email him your picks. So I ask that if you go ahead and participate, leave a comment here with your choices so we can all
laugh at agree with you. And so I can have a bouncing off point with which to narrow down my 500+ songs to a mere ten.
This is going to be hard.
[Obviously, I've been meaning to link this for some time, as it was posted on Dec. 21, but you have until Jan. 16 to get your picks in.
Thanks to Dr. Frank for the reminder. And I'm pleased to see that Dr. F. has Pink Floyd's See Emily Play on his list. I caught a lot of flack for having that on mine. Oh, I'll post my list when I whittle it down to a measly ten.]
