    Re: Best Rock & Roll Song Ever

    Best? I can't do best.....


     


    A few of my favorites in rock, ranging from rock to metal/rock:


    Beatles: Helter Skelter, Birthday


    Stones: Gimme Shelter, Ventilator blues


    Deep Purple: Child in Time


    Sabbath: Paranoid, Hand of Doom, Electric Funeral


    Zepp: Whole Lotta Love, Black Dog, Over the Hill and Far Away


    AIC: Would?, Rooster


    Gn'R: It's So Easy, Pretty Tied Up


    Tool: Sober, Eulogy, 46&2


     


     


     


    My best effort at one that sums up Rock would be Stones: Gimme Shelter.


    It captures that alternate swagger and leering menace, but works in the joyfulness (the female lyric range). It's sort of a bit of everything that in my view is rock, including the blues.

    Obviously impossible to answer definitively even in your own opinion, but the point isn't about getting it right, it's about what what first sprang to mind.  I ask such questions all the time.

    It's not my favourite, but I'll suggest the best is "Aloha Steve and Danno" by Radio Birdman.

    Perfect in every way...

    Brilliant.  Hard to argue with on one level...on the other, it was written by Richard Berry.  ;-)

    That is correct, there is no right answer and my best song choice changes depending on my mood. Cool song. I enjoy many of the songs you post here. They are foreign to me but they are always upbeat and spirited.

    My definition of Rock & Roll is not merely Rock music. It has to have some Roll to it also. Rock and Roll by Zeppelin is also my pick.
