I first read this list as a “forgotten tracks by the great artists” and I was all “wait, wait, wait, this list is all wrong. This list is hits.” The Beatles’ would then need an earlier- and later-phase song… like “I’ve Just Seen a Face” and “I’ve Got a Feeling”.

So I kind of split my notes as best of and forgotten. I offer up:
Tom Petty – American Girl
Talking Heads – Psycho Killer and Once in a Lifetime (from Stop Making Sense); or if you’re going forgotten The Great Curve or Born Under Punches (from The Name of This Band is Talking Heads) or The Big Country
Led Zeppelin – you’ve got it with Immigrant Song. But forgotten: Out on the Tiles
Prince – Purple Rain or Baby I’m a Star; forgotten: P Control
Dave Matthews Band – #41
Parliament – Flash Light; forgotten: Motor Booty Affair or Unfunky UFO
Funkadelic – One Nation Under a Groove; forgotten: Maggot Brain (live version on One Nation)
Kinks – you’ll need two; one from the early fuzz (You Really Got Me/All Day and All of the Night) and one from later

The list is actually the best song by the best bands/artists from the 60-90s with a couple of other favorites thrown in.
The list is mostly rock/pop - metal, prog, hard, some soft, some folkish, with some R&B cross over like Aretha Franklin’s respect or September by Earth Wind and Fire. I’m building this list seperate from my Funk It Up playlist where bands like Parliament reside.

I need to add the James Gang, Joe Walsh, Jeff Beck, Robert Plant, Frampton, John Fogerty, and Faces. Paul Simon’s wife is a one hit wonder, but it’s a great song. Squeeze is also interesting. 2 great songs, but are they “sponge worthy”?
Blind Faith is already on the list.

Just heard a Vanilla Fudge version of the Supreme’s You Keep Me Hangin On. It’s great. It sounds like Bowied and Hendrix got together and reformulated the song to suit their guitar and singing styles.

I have been listening to the list in car. Too much 70s music. I haven’t actually dug through the songs by release date, but that it how it feels when I was listening. I’m thinking a redo with 50 songs per decade.

This will allow bands with long careers and good music in multiple decades, to have multiple songs on the list and I’m going to eliminate the one and two hit wonders.

Wow!  I couldn't agree more!  I woke up to that song one morning in Winnipeg close to 40 years ago.  It was like some kind of religious experience.  I have never forgotten that, even after all these years.

 

Apologies if already mentioned, but other songs that have left a permanent positive impact on me back when I was a young kid are Tommy James and The Shondells doing "Crimson and Clover", and "In the Jungle" by The Tokens.

Genesis - Invisible Touch
 
The Beatles - In My Life
 
Led Zeppelin - 10 Years Gone / What Is and What Should Never Be
 
I still think the greatest song ever recorded is Beast of Burden, and IMO this list can't be remotely complete without Queen and The Clash
 
Never really liked Kashmir


Finally somebody that agrees with me on Kashmir. I have never understood why many people consider it their favorite Zeppelin song. There are dozens I would pick before it. I liked their early albums the best but over time have warmed up to several songs from Physical Graffiti and Presence.

Always got a kick out of Kashmir because of Fast Times. Damone tells Rat to play Side 1 of Zep 4 on his date, & he ends up playing side 2 of Physical Graffiti. :lol:

Though all Zep is great (especially I & II, love the blues), have always been partial to Presense.

& btw, Georgia, thanks for starting this thread. Listened to some CD's it's been a least a decade since I've played.

Now, just need to get a turntable to hear some stuff it's been TWO decades since listening to. (How the frig did I get nearly as old as PA? :P )

Zombies are already on the list. They are one of my favorites from the Brit Invasion. Great song by Ten Years After, but not a grest band.

Listening to the music is the purpose of this and my other playlists. Eventhough the 70’s list is getting crowded, I still haven’t put in anything from 10cc, 38 special, Donna Summer or Alan Parsons.

I think I know why the 70s is so crowded. Still had the great 60’s bands at full tilt, like the Who, Stones and Zepellin. The rise of the best Metal bands. The peak of the Prog rock bands, like Yes, Genesis, Rush. The start of New Wave. The rise and fall of dance/disco. Great Pop/Rock bands like Fleetwood Mac. The mellow california sound. Some great Funk, Reggae, and Soul crossover songs. Despite being a terrible decade for the economy and fashion, the music is really great.

Should I post other music playlist threads. How about New Wave, or British Invasion. I love my Ladies names playlist. Actually I really don’t have a great Prog rock playlist. Maybe we should do that one. Say 50-60 songs from the best Prog rock bands.

How about a "freedom" playlist?

I'll start it:

The Who: I'm Free
Donald Fagen: IGY
Jesus Jones: Right Here, Right Now
Traffic: Many a Mile to Freedom

(Not sure why, but would suggest that whoever chooses Skynyrd's "Freebird" should be subjected to teaching Liger why parts of the Finger Lakes are both by geography & temperament in WNY. And that it takes a truly special person to say Ra-cha-cha iSN'T WNY. That'll show 'em. Both. ;))

Dog it. Should've included Vanilla Fudge's version of "Set Me Free" & Steve Winwood's "Freedom Overspill."

Anyone running w/ the Supremes' version (or even worse Kim Wilde's version) of SMF should be immediately banished to the Pit of Misery (aka any Toronto Make Us Laughs' board ;)).

Philadelphia Freedom - Elton John

 

Does it have to have freedom in the title or would Bob Marley's Exodus work?  Start a thread! 

 

I was also thinking about a sports song playlist, but I can't decide if I'd include songs only referencing sports like Centerfield  by John Fogerty, or also songs that were "adopted" by a sports team like "We are Family" which the Pirates used as a theme song to win the Series in 1979.  Maybe even Deacon Blues by Steely Dan which references the Crimson Tide of Alabama.

Pretty sure IGY doesn't have "freedom" in the title. ;)

Both your choices fit the bill.

Dog it. This one's tougher than anticipated.

Adding Jon Anderson's "Cage of Freedom."

    I'd rather be in Sarajevo, or Istanbul (not Constantinople)

Michael McDonald - Sweet Freedom (cheesy song, better movie)

Speaking of movies & then TV, Born Free. Particularly the Andy Williams version for its major role in the plotline of Dexter's 1st season when Dexter was trying to meet the Ice Truck Killer.

And then a song that we'd need a ruling on. School of Fish's Three Strange Days. "For three strange days, well, I had no obligations ..." My vote is "yes."

Me & Bobby McGee - Janice Joplin ( the Kris Kristopherson version is just WEIRD).

Free Four - Pink Floyd (no, not really, but this is a tough genre).
