From YOUR list only these songs deserve something HONORABLE to tell the truth:

2 Bohemian Rhapsody Queen 1975
3 Stairway To Heaven Led Zeppelin 1972
8 Hotel California Eagles 1976
10 Child In Time Deep Purple 1971
20 Angie Rolling Stones 1973
22 Light My Fire Doors 1967
26 Hey Jude Beatles 1968
29 Another Brick In The Wall Pink Floyd 1979
30 Mama Genesis 1983

But to tell the truth, if i had been a hard music critic, in top 30 of all time i would pick only:

Bohemian Rhapsody
Stairway To Heaven
Hotel California
Child In Time

Because these songs actualy are considered in the top 10.

I would pick alot more better Pink Floyd songs than "Another Brick", because it seems you know only "Another Brick", where's it's not even the best of them..

from this list the only ones i'd slap onto an ipod to listen to at work...

Metallica - One
Pearl Jam - Alive
Radar love - Golden Earring
Sweet child of mine - Guns n' Roses
Paradise City - Guns n' Roses


the worse for me on that list is the eagles (i can't stand the ******* eagles - HC is probably the only tune of theirs i can handle) and bryan adams (blame the CRTC laws more than him for his level of suck)

Hey, I like Meat Loaf. It's kind of like junk food. Not much substance but can be fun. Okay, so I only like Paradise by the Dashboard Light and the only reason I like him at all is that he was in Rocky Horror. LOL

Just proves lists are all VERY subjective. While I only find Meat Loaf's I Would Do Anything for Love (makes me want to throw up) and that insipid Anything I Do song by Bryan Adams (that proved someone cut his balls off because gone were the songs I liked him for and in came those horrible love ballads) to be completely unacceptable, I still wouldn't put many of them on my lists of top 30 songs of all time.

i'm telling ya it's the CRTC and canadian content laws that chopped bryan adams' balls off haha. it also explains why the tragically hip has successfully re-released the same album every other year for the past decade. why avril lavinge has a 'career'. celine dion. great big sea. our lady peace. nickelback.

it's all about the suits finding something that scores once and being too lazy to find something else to fill the mandated 35-50% of canadian content required to be aired daily in order to maintain their broadcasting license. at least until the band or artist implodes.

hell i remember hearing about this album bryan adams made out in the carribean with all sorts of traditional island musicians, could be that he was actually making an artistic departure from his formulaic adult contemporary pap. but due to the fact that he's signed to a canadian label and used more than X amount of non-canadian personnel and didn't record enough of it in canada (or hadn't lived in the country long enough that year) it didn't qualify as a 'canadian' album.

and so we ended up with more crap. shit he's even taken to ripping himself off. seriously listen to 'open road' and 'run to you' back to back... SAME TUNE. hahaha

Strange list...my favorite I guess would be "Pride (In The Name of Love)" by U2 ("Hey Jude" would be a very close second), and my least favorite would most certainly be "One" by Metallica.
