Remember that top ten list of best rock/pop songs of all time
that I'm supposed to be completing by tonight to get in on Norm's survey?
I'm running out of time. I have edited this list so many times it doesn't even resemble the ten I started out with.
This is where I'm at now, after 47 revisions - keep in mind that these are in no way my favorite songs (you can find those here
), but what amounts to the best songs, with many factors taken into consideration. One such factor being that I have to swallow my pride and recognize how important/good some of these songs are even if they don't make my list of favorites.
[Revised ten times since first posted]
My Generation (The Who)
Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana)
Good Vibrations (Beach Boys)
Sympathy for the Devil (Stones)
Welcome to the Jungle (GnR)
Kick Out the Jams (MC5)
Whipping Post (Allman Bros)
Mayonaise - Smashing Pumpkins
The Wind Cries Mary (Hendrix)
Somehow, in my haste to revise, I obliterated all recent music, save for Nirvana, off the list.
Help me out here. There's no saying we can't make this a joint effort.
(hoping people are around on a Sunday night before a legal holiday Monday)
There will be no arguments of the Smashing Pumpkins song, as it is my belief that Mayonaise
is the greatest song ever recorded, anytime, anywhere, any planet.
I've included Mayonaise for your listening pleasure, in the radio below.
