    Default Best 100 Songs Ever

    I'm looking to update my mp3 collection soon. I've reviewed some websites naming what they believe the top 500 songs of all time to be, but I have found myself disputing most the entries. Thought maybe I'd ask you guys what songs you think I should add to my collection.

    You just put what music you like on there. It would make no sense taking a Top 500 songs list, putting that on your MP3 and then only listening to 20 or 30 songs. Those top 'x' lists are only someone's opinion so don't be surprised if you don't like any of the songs on it.

    Default Led Zeppelin - Immigrant Song mp3

    Led's best song ever was the Immigrant song, which is much better than Kashmir (maybe even a top 100 song).

    Great Song, but the entertainment is absolutely unbeatable! A one man show that for some reason doesn't get old.

    Default AX CLASSIC : No Way Out !

    I'm in too deep ,
    and there's no way out,
    for mee ee ee eeeeee

    [youtube]PckdcTlk-sA[/youtube]

    No Way Out
    Spooner/Steen/Prince/Welnick/Cotten/Anderson/Waybill/Styles


    There is no way out
    I am stuck here behind the window
    Tangled in the wires and burned by electricity
    And there's no place left to go for me
    And there's no way out for me

    No way out, no way out for me

    I try to get to my feet
    Feels like I'm glued to my seat
    I try to crawl through the door
    Feels like I'm nailed to the floor

    No way out for me
    No way out, there is no way out for me
    Stranded in the great vast wasteland of my TV
    And there's no place left to go for me
    And there's no way out for me

    Somehow I don't feel the same
    I can't remember my name
    If there was only a chance
    to struggle out of this trance

    No way out for me
    No way out, there is no way out for me

    No way out
    I am stuck here behind the window

    No way out for me
    No way out, there is no way out for me
    There is no way out for me
    And there's no way out for me

    Kashmir - Led Zeppelin

    Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream
    I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been
    To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen
    They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed

    Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace, whose sounds caress my ear
    But not a word I heard could I relate, the story was quite clear
    Oh, oh.

    Oh, I been flying... mama, there ain't no denyin'
    I've been flying, ain't no denyin', no denyin'

    All I see turns to brown, as the sun burns the ground
    And my eyes fill with sand, as I scan this wasted land
    Trying to find, trying to find where I've been.

    Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace, like thoughts inside a dream
    Heed the path that led me to that place, yellow desert stream
    My Shangri-La beneath the summer moon, I will return again
    Sure as the dust that floats high in June, when movin' through Kashmir.

    Oh, father of the four winds, fill my sails, across the sea of years
    With no provision but an open face, along the straits of fear
    Ohh.

    When I'm on, when I'm on my way, yeah
    When I see, when I see the way, you stay-yeah

    Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, when I'm down...
    Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah, well I'm down, so down
    Ooh, my baby, oooh, my baby, let me take you there

    Let me take you there. Let me take you there

    Are We Not Men? - Devo

    THEY TELL US THAT
    WE LOST OUR TAILS
    EVOLVING UP
    FROM LITTLE SNAILS
    I SAY IT'S ALL
    JUST WIND IN SAILS
    ARE WE NOT MEN?
    WE ARE DEVO!
    WE'RE PINHEADS NOW
    WE ARE NOT WHOLE
    WE'RE PINHEADS ALL
    JOCKO HOMO
    ARE WE NOT MEN?
    D-E-V-O
    MONKEY MEN ALL
    IN BUSINESS SUIT
    TEACHERS AND CRITICS
    ALL DANCE THE POOT
    ARE WE NOT MEN?
    WE ARE DEVO!
    ARE WE NOT MEN?
    D-E-V-O
    GOD MADE MAN
    BUT HE USED THE MONKEY TO DO IT
    APES IN THE PLAN
    WE'RE ALL HERE TO PROVE IT
    I CAN WALK LIKE AN APE
    TALK LIKE AN APE
    I CAN DO WHAT A MONKEY CAN DO
    GOD MADE MAN
    BUT A MONKEY SUPPLIED THE GLUE
    WE MUST REPEAT
    O.K. LET'S GO!

    LOL. That would have to be close to the worst crap I have heard in years. Who was the jokemeister who dug it up from an ancient cess pit.

    be fair - it was the 60's. picking are slim in the 60's as far as music goes. as such this one doesn't rank that badly after due consideration.
