I think the DDD Jacksons list is fine, except that I'd probably move "Shake Your Body" ahead of "Who's Lovin' You".

I made pipers changes, plus Black Keys.
And I fixed Pixies and PJ Harvey links.
Thanks

Oh, and here's a new list that i've been working on for a couple months or so.

The Black Keys
1. Tighten Up
2. Your Touch
3. I Got Mine
4. Lonely Boy
5. Strange Times
6. Set You Free
7. Howlin' for You
8. 10AM Automatic
9. Til I Get My Way
10. Hard Row

1-5 is solid. I think She's Long Gone, Just Got to Be and Girl is on My Mind have to be on that list somewhere. Girl is on my mind is the best song off Rubber Factory and Just Got to Be is the best song off Magic Potion after Your Touch. Hard Row and Set You Free are the singles from Thickfreakness but some of the weaker songs on that album, the title tracks, Hurt Like Mine and Hold Me in Your Arms are much better tracks. I'd make it something like this.

1. Tighten Up
2. Your Touch
3. I Got Mine
4. Lonely Boy
5. Strange Times
6. Howlin' for You
7. Girl Is On My Mind
8. She's Long Gone
9. Hard Row
10. Hurt Like Mine


Set You Free has to stay in there (for now anyway) because it was actually the first Black Keys song to get any sort of singular recognition and radio airplay.

I think that we should update the Muse one.

1. Starlight
2. Uprising
3. Supermassive Black Hole
4. Knights of Cydonia
5. Hysteria
6. Exogenesis: Symphony (considered by many reviewers to be the best Muse song ever)
7. Time is Running Out
8. Plug in Baby
9. Stockholm Syndrome
10. Citizen Erased (massive fan favourite)

Red Hot Chili Peppers

7. Can't Stop
8. Aeroplane
9. The Zephyr Song
10. Californication

I doubt that Scar Tissue is a greater song than Dani California and Californication.

Yeah, I think this one's really outdated. Otherside is way too high, Californication seems to be the longest lasting song on that album. Me finks:

1. Under The Bridge
2. Californication
3. Give It Away
4. Otherside
5. Dani California
6. Scar Tissue
7. Higher Ground
8. Aeroplane
9. Can't Stop
10. Suck My Kiss

I don't see why By the Way was so represented when it's probably their second most hated album next to Stadium Arcadium.

I would support moving "Karma Police" ahead of "Fake Plastic Trees".

My mistake...I should've figured as much. :lol:

First off, I'm actually surprised that Jailhouse made it to #1. Love it.
That being said, how on earth can you justify Don't Be Cruel ahead of Heartbreak Hotel? Popularity is dangerously close, but impact and influence? Come on. Dont Be Cruel has virtually none. Heartbreak Hotel is one of the defining records of early rock. Hell, even Guns 'N Roses used to cover it regularly in their early days. How's that for some broad influence?
Also, I see no need for Cant Help Falling In Love to be there. Sure, everyone knows it, but that alone doesn't make it one of his greatest. Again, practically zero influence and impact.
What about In The Ghetto?

Well I wasn't aware that there was a criteria until just now.
I would say it had more influence than Light My Fire, though LMF obviously takes popularity with ease. As for impact, that can be interpreted in many different ways.....
That generally looks good though.

I think I could agree with switching "Heartbreak Hotel" with "Don't Be Cruel". I think "Can't Help Falling In Love" belongs where it is, though. What influence and impact does "In The Ghetto" have?

Clicking on a random list:

Chicago

1. 25 Or 6 To 4
2. If You Leave Me Now
3. Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?
4. I'm A Man
5. Make Me Smile
6. Beginnings
7. Colour My World
8. Look Away
9. You're The Inspiration
10. Hard Habit To Break

I have no idea why the minor-hit cover of "I'm A Man" and the way-past-their-prime "Look Away" are there. Well, "Look Away" did hit number one--but so did "Hard To Say I'm Sorry", and that one has stood the test of time better. How about:

Chicago

1. 25 Or 6 To 4
2. If You Leave Me Now
3. Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?
4. Hard To Say I'm Sorry
5. Make Me Smile
6. Beginnings
7. Saturday In The Park
8. You're The Inspiration
9. Feelin' Stronger Every Day
10. Hard Habit To Break

Could make a case for "Old Days" as well. Thoughts?

It's a no-brainer, really.

What significance does it have aside from being really popular?
It's just a typical ballad, and not even one of his best at that.

Quote:

It had a shitload of commercial impact and is overall one of his most acclaimed songs. I think the reason it sold so well is because the 'protest' vibe of the song coincided brilliantly with the the social mayhem of the late 60's.
Maybe not much influence, but it kills in both kinds of impact (commercial and musical). And obviously popularity.
