Smile Top 2000

They are broadcasting the "Top 2000 of all times" here in Holland at the time. They play the 2000 best songs of all time in some six days or so. I just downloaded the first 25. They are all good songs, but I really don't understand why Bohemian Rhapsody is number 1. I also think there could have been some other genres other than Seventies Rock.

Deep Purple - Child In Time
Eagles - Hotel California
Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven
Meatloaf - Paradise By The Dashboard Lights
Animals - House of the Rising Sun

Billy Joel - Goodnight Saigon
Beatles - Hey Jude
Sultans Of Swing - Dire Straits
John Lennon - Imagine
The Doors - Riders On The Storm
The Alan Parsons Project - Old and Wise

Hmmm... I know the classic rock station back home did the same kind of thing and ran Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven as the top rock and roll song of all time.

Thumbs up

I don't understand why Bohemian Rhapsody is no1 either. It's a nice song but not the best

Anyways, nice list. I already have most of them

I wonder what the classic rock station will name as the top song ever 30 years from now... I hope its one of the 90s era Alt Rockers... specially Smashing Pumpkins or Everclear

It looks like that list was compiled by "most-played" and not necessarily the best songs. I can look through that list and tell you a half dozen songs by each artist that are better than the ones listed.

Last year they showed the `50 best rocksongs of all time` on TV over here.

Blink 182 had the 3rd or 4th place

I was shocked to see how many people, who absolutely don΄t know **** about music, vote in polls like that. blegh!
