I voted for Bad, but also love Paint It Black. Sadly, I've only heard five songs on that list. I have some work to do, lol.

We're a little biased from the look of things.

This was a tough choice. Every single one of the songs on the list is amazing. I finally chose "One" because - well, because it's perfect. If I were a songwriter, that's the kind of song I would want to write.

I haven't voted yet, because most of the songs are great......but "Allison"??????

come on, that song is in the league of "My Sherona", not "One", "Baba O'Reilly" and
Stairway to Heaven".

I voted for Stairway to Heaven.....try to listen to that song without tapping your foot, or singing along.....not to mention getting goosebumps.

One word...........Classic!

How on earth can you compare "Alison" to "My Sherona," apart from the fact that both feature a girl's name in the title? "Alison" is one of the best songs from one of the greatest songwriters ever.

and kick ass live.....i agree that it's a great song, but not the best, imo...none of mine made the list, but hey, i never was the one to love the "classics" as much as the random ones...

well, I just happen to disagree as far as "allison" being ranked in the top 10 tunes of all time...no offense to elvis and his fans.

look, any list is arbitrary at best, and what matters is what is the best to you....so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

you know how many of those vh1 top "blah blah blah's" of all time I've watched and been like ?

hey....there's people on THIS BOARD that think "one" isn't that great...(nut jobs).

i think one is a great song, but unfortunately for me, ive listened to it 9 million times and its lost its lustre. too bad i didnt know about other music when i was younger, because maybe then i wouldnt have overdone u2.

difference being that Gretzky ruled


I think your fascination with AC/DC is bigger than mine

paint it black

I'm weirdly pleased that it is appreciated by the folk in here. Weird as its not like I write it or anything (obviously der, but you know what I mean!), just great that it does to others what it does to me. I voted it simply because of all the songs on that list, it is one song I never tire of and is just as good (sometimes better) live, than in the studio.

What a song.
