As a related point, I think Don't Stop Believin' could top the Journey list. I don't know why it wasn't #1 in the first place.


Yeah. "Don't Stop Believin'" wasn't always as big as it is now, and I think when the list was made you could have made a case that it wasn't number one--although I can't imagine why "Wheel In The Sky" would have been. But at this point putting "Believin'" at number one is a no-brainer. Hmmm...

Journey (revision)

1. Don't Stop Believin'
2. Open Arms
3. Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)
4. Lights
5. Faithfully
6. Any Way You Want It
7. Wheel In The Sky
8. Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'
9. Who's Crying Now
10. Only The Young

I think that looks much better than what we have now. I mean--where the heck was "Lights"? I'm wondering if there's a pre-Perry era song that could make the bottom of the list just for balance's sake. Thoughts?

(Man, I HATE Journey, and here I am at 2:30 in the morning trying to decide whether "Only The Young" deserves the last spot on the list over "Send Her My Love" or "Be Good To Yourself". And I got up at 7:30 this morning. My name is Brett, and I'm an Internet addict....)

All of Journey's pre-Perry singles were pretty insignificant and none of them charted.

I actually made an attempt at a Zappa list not too long ago:

piper wrote:
Frank Zappa/Mothers of Invention (draft)
1. Peaches en Regalia
2. Montana
3. Dancin' Fool
4. I'm the Slime
5. Bobby Brown Goes Down
6. Valley Girl
7. Trouble Every Day
8. Don't Eat the Yellow Snow/Nanook Rubs It/St. Alfonso's Pancake Breakfast
9. Joe's Garage
10. Who Are the Brain Police?

Of course, #8 could just as easily be "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow"'s single version. Despite being a single version and an edit of two songs ("Don't Eat" and "Nanook Rubs It") that version is probably among Zappa's best known songs, and it might even be at #2

Proposal for a Queen revision:

1. Bohemian Rhapsody
2. We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions
3. Another One Bites The Dust
4. Under Pressure
5. Somebody To Love
6. Killer Queen
7. Crazy Little Thing Called Love
8. Don't Stop Me Now
9. I Want To Break Free
10. Innuendo

Also, Jackson Browne needs a revision pretty badly:

1. Running On Empty
2. Doctor My Eyes
3. Late For The Sky
4. The Pretender
5. These Days
6. The Load-Out/Stay
7. Somebody's Baby
8. Before The Deluge
9. Rock Me On The Water
10. Fountain Of Sorrow/For A Dancer

Good revision, overall. I could maybe see "Lovin Touchin' Squeezin'" at #6, though. That "na-na-na-na-na" finale is simply one of their trademarks. ;)

I like your Queen list more than the one thats currently on the page, but I still think Stone Stone Cold Crazy, Tie Your Mother Down, Brighton Rock, Keep Yourself Alive, I Want it All, Seven Seas of Rhye and You're My Best Friend deserve to be on the list over Innuendo and Radio GaGa.

Radio Gaga isn't on the list anymore. For the list of songs you put up: Keep Yourself Alive, Stone Cold Crazy, Tie Your Mother Down, and Brighton Rock are essentially out of the running (lack of popularity). Best Friend has a case, but not a good one. Ditto Rhye. I Want It All is pretty much the only song that has a shot, but Innuendo crushes it in acclaim and takes popularity by a hair, while they tie in influence, or lack thereof.

Here's the DDD Alice in Chains list:

1. Down in a Hole
2. Nutshell
3. Them Bones
4. Rooster
5. Man in the Box
6. Would
7. Got Me Wrong
8. Angry Chair
9. No Excuses
10. Grind

I agree that it very much needs a revision, but I'd have "Man in the Box", "Rooster", and "Would?" in the top 3, most likely in that order.

Yup. That's the only Top 3 that makes sense.

I put No Excuses up there because of its chart success... Don't know why I ended up placing Would? down there, cause i agree that those three are probably their most acclaimed pieces...

"No Excuses" would probably be my choice for #4. I certainly think it should be higher than its current #9 placement.
