NOT the Best Rock Songs of All Time

This is not a definitive list of the best rock songs of all time. For one thing, I haven't heard all the music that's out there. And for another, every list is subjective. 

When was the compiler of such a list born? Where did he or she grow up (and is that person a he or a she)? Did siblings or flatmates put that person off some artists or genres for ever? Was the listener at a high or low point in their life when they first heard those songs on the radio, and did they live in an era when radio was listened to?

It's pointless to argue that that one song, singer or group is better than another. I agree with a comment that I once read on Youtube: Music is not a competitive sport.

Still, it's fun looking at lists. People love to post their picks of "The Best Songs of All Time". I enjoy perusing those lists. A great example is Charles Olney's list of  Beatles songs.

Anyway, the following is the music that I resonate with. These are the songs I regard as rock classics by virtue of the fact that I like their hooks, riffs, lyrics and whatnot. For the record, I was born in 1957, I'm male, I grew up in an English-speaking country (not the UK or USA). Those facts and others have a bearing on the music that moves me now.

Doubtless, there's a lot of great music that I'll have forgotten to include. Remind me, please! Who are the artists I've so glaringly overlooked? Send me your suggestions. If doesn't appear there, then it may be because they aren't my cup of tea. Don't take that personally. Give me the titles of their best work and I'll give those tunes a listen.  I shan't damn them unheard. And whether or not I decide to insert them as new favorites, I promise to be polite when I voice my opinion. 

This is an ongoing project. It promises to remain in a state of flux. On with the show . . . 




It turns out that the majority of the music that I enjoy originates with a small number of artists. Two thirds of my list of 1000 was written and or performed by a grand total of about 30 individuals and groups.

The Beatles contribute 86 songs
Jethro Tull 56
The Doors 47
Ten Years After 38
Led Zeppelin 34
Oasis 33
U2 32
Neil Young 26
The Moody Blues 25
The Rolling Stones 25
The Beach Boys 24
Jimi Hendrix 23
Stephen Stills 23
David Bowie 19
Joni Mitchell 19
Pink Floyd 18
The Who 18
Tim Buckley 16
Yes 16
The Byrds 15
Crosby Stills and Nash 14
Steely Dan 14
Split Enz 12
The B52s 12
Black Sabbath 12
Canned Heat 12
Deep Purple 11
Buffalo Springfield 10

Another dozen individuals/groups make my list at least 5 times. They are: Paul McCartney, Police, Simon and Garfunkel, Traffic, Carlos Santana, Cream, Crowded House, Janis Joplin, Kinks, Love, Midnight Oil and Frank Zappa.

Apart from those, there are another 50 - revered and respected musicians such as Queen, Jefferson Airplane, Bob Dylan, and John Lennon - who wrote or performed at least two numbers that impress me but whose other output doesn't strike my chord for one idiosyncratic reason or another. 

Add to that another 80 or so 'one-hit wonders'.

And so, without further ado, NOT the Best Rock Songs of All Time, one of the few lists that doesn't have Stairway to Heaven in first place.
