    It is hard for me to come up with a top-ten favorite list of songs from each of those bands.

    I hate to say I don't get a song, but never understood that one. Although love the descending horn lines.

    Just thought of this....


    Funk 49 by the James Gang! Love this song. And speaking of guitarist Joe Walsh, how about Rocky Mountain Way? What a great tune.


    Oh, and Sunshine of Your Love by Cream.

    Crazy on You-Heart

    The Wilson sisters rock!

    This live version starts out a bit slowly with about a 2.5 minute acoustic intro, which I think is excellent, but then turns into an absolute scorcher.

    No offense to anyone on this thread, but we have clearly left out THE greatest rock song of all time. I give you a rare live version:

    Anything with Joe Walsh, or Clapton, is a contender.

    And all kidding aside, this is one of my favorite rock videos. Proof that sometimes the best musician in the band is the quiet guy standing off to the side, while the flashy ones do their thing:

    And on what, to me, is a clearly top-five rock song ever.
