*yawn* Thanks for the list... however the yawn is because it hardly ever seems to change, especially the top spots. For the life of me, I will NEVER understand how LARS by Dylan tops these lists. Then again, I guess that just continues to give me fodder for calling it the most overrated song ever recorded. *shrug*. Nirvana in the top 10 also makes the list even less legit.

It's Rolling Stone, what else did you expect? :heheh:

Marvins all over that baby! I'm happy but wait.......



:puke:

I'd rather new music not be represented at all if that's the **** they pick. These critics should pat down the ***** they have for Beyonce and realize she's not even the best in here area of music when they make these lists! :bonk:

Because it's the most important, if not the best, rock 'n roll song ever recorded. :D

...:hm:...That's not even my favorite Bob Dylan song. This list would definitely be a lot different in 20 or 30 years as my generation passes on many of the top songs would be demoted I'm sure.

Yeah, I was mostly just joking around. I love Like A Rolling Stone, but there are lots of Dylan songs I like a lot more.

Still, it was one of the most important songs in the development of rock 'n roll as a serious "high brow" art form. It was a game changer, even though there are plenty of better songs out there.

Between my left and right speakers...
Do Ya Think I'm Sexy? by Rod Stewart... :rolleyes: I know it is considered his landmark hit but... Overall, the list is a good mix. Quite a bit of The Fab Four's well known "pop" hits that I don't personally think is their better compositions.
