Hallo Net Boys and Net Girls!

 

So, here's the challenge...

 

...what is your favourite from the above list of 20 signature songs?

 

There are so many bands / artists left off the list because it would be nigh impossible to narrow

it down for some artist such as Rush, Bowie, The Beatles, The Stones, The Kinks, etc., etc., etc.

 

Have fun and let the voting begin!!!

Overplayed, but for a reason.

I read the list; I pondered the list; I waffled; I hesitated; and then I went with the world-historical "Stairway to Heaven."

 

That’s so funny, I’ve voted and deleted my vote a number of times.

 

(and I compiled the list!)

 

I’m having a difficult time narrowing the field.

Obviously, there's a bunch of songs on the list I really enjoy. Also, there are other songs by some of the artists I prefer to the ones listed (but I agree that the listed songs are each artist's signature tune).

 

In the end, for me it came down to Crazy Train vs. Sweet Child O' Mine. Those are the 2 songs on the list I am ALWAYS in the mood to hear.

I went with Dream On because it's insane to me that Tyler wrote such a good and mature song at such a young age.

 

Some might argue it’s amazing he wrote such a good and mature song at all, lol.

 

Excellent song, basically invented the power ballad, along with Lady by Styx.

I think I`ve been put off a bit by the story behind it :eyeroll:

I really don`t want to hear most of these iconic songs again, `cept for maybe Refugee and Crazy Train. Freebird I`ve certainly heard too often. If VH were added you`d have to say Jump, which sums up the problem as it`s well known but a mile from their best song.

I went with Bohemian Rhapsody. That song is as overplayed as Stairway, but it is a song that was so far ahead of its time, with such unconventional songwriting and arranging, and it was executed with top-shelf production and musicianship -- that such a song can become both a signature hit and enduring pop culture reference puts it at the top of the list for me.

"..........You used to laugh about

Everybody that was hangin' out

Now you don't talk so loud

Now you don't seem so proud

About having to scrounging

Your next meal.........

 

 

 

Ain't it hard to discover that

He really wasn't where it's at

After he took from you

Everything he could steal........."

Not fair having Stairway in the poll. With each vote it either steals from another great song or doesn't get picked due to hipster bias. :lol:

 

Might be fun to alter the poll so we can pick up to three.

 

Mine...

 

1. Stairway

2. Carry On My Wayward Son

3. Gimme Shelter

 

What? The Stones aren't listed?

 

:scared:

Agree. Tom Sawyer's absence duly noted as well.
