hm...much of the Beatles stuff is most well known for prominent vocals more than captivating instrumentals, though they obviously have both. Perhaps that's why.

That's because Bon Jovi is better than the Beatles.   After all, THEY made the list.  :)

This song by TESLA should have been #1 on this list...



So you think that it's over,
That your love has finally reached the end.
Any time you call, night or day,
I'll be right there for you if you need a friend.

It's gonna take a little time.
Time is sure to mend your broken heart.
Don't you even worry, pretty darlin'.
I know you'll find love again
Yeah

Love is all around you
Love is knockin' outside your door.
Waitin' for you is this love made just for two
Keep an open heart and you'll find love again, I know.
