    Re: Top Songs of All Time?

    I'm really struggling with this.

    Comparing Eine Kleine Nachtmusik to Brandenburg Concerto to Kind of Blue to I'm So Lonesome to Strawberry Fields to Carmen to Rock Around the Clock to We Shall Overcome to Fireworks Music to La Boheme is just .... tough.

    I might equate albums to songs since jazz, classical, opera, etc don't fit easily into a "song" category.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    "Hide Your Heart" was performed by KISS, sans makeup. It was the first single from their "Hot in the Shade" album, which also featured the sugary quasi-ballad "Forever". So Frehley's Comets don't even get credit for that.

    Very much so. Pet Sounds influenced how some of the other heavyweights in music approached songwriting and album-crafting and studio production, and in that regard, it moved the needle of popular music -- not an easy thing to do.

    Most influential? Well, that's kind of hard to quantify. Sgt. Pepper was amazing, and it's the rare guitarist whose playing style doesn't pay homage to Clapton or Hendrix in some way... it must have been amazing to have been a music-loving youngster at that time.

    Hide Your Heart is interesting. It was co-written by Desomond Child, Ace and Paul Stanley. Ace released it in October 1989 on the "Trouble Walking" album. Kiss released it in October 1989 on the "Hot in the Shade" album.

    So technically Kiss and Ace (by default Frehley's Comet) get credit for the song.

    The dates are from Wiki so they may be suspect. However, I know they helped co-write the song, and both bands released it because I have both albums. (one reason I'm glad you people only know my by my moniker of Ltlabner. To hide the shame).

    Good points about the studio stuff. I'm just not sure from a musical standpoint how influential it was. It certainly doesn't have a lot of bands trying to mimic it the way that Led Zeppelin or even Nine Inch Nails albums get mimicked to this day.

    I wish I could unlearn all that.

    Any song that contains the chorus "Uh huh huh huh, hey hey hey, a do do do do do do do do" deserves it's own circle in hell.

    However, "Rock Soldiers" would have been a better representation of the crapulence that was Frehley's Comets.

    But Paul Stanley sung it with so much.....emotion.

    Well, that and really good eye liner.

    Pet Sounds.... Sgt Pepper.....obvious classics. But from a studio production quality, the Beatle's Revolver is one of the best. Eleanor Rigby one of my favs.

    Re: Top Songs of All Time?

    a few more:

    Rhapsody in Blue
    One for My Baby (And One More for the Road)
    Respect
    Lola (it can get annoying, but it is a truly great song)
    Lost in the Supermarket
    What's Going On
    I've Been Loving You Too Long (Otis Redding)
    A Change is Gonna Come
    Marquee Moon
    Street Spirit (Radiohead)

    I'm really tempted to put Every Breath You Take on that list too, actually. But I'm also tempted to add Goodbye Stranger and I Can't Go For That (No Can Do), so take from that what you will.

    This is incredibly difficult, though. I agree with Roy -- how do you compare? I was a classical music freak when I was younger, but I can't really consider an entire symphony a song. But I can't break it up either, and shorter works of classical music seem to pale next to them somehow. i also thought of a few songs that I think are way up there in the greatest spot but aren't terribly well-known. For better or worse, it seems to me that the greatest ever should be pretty familiar.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
