Probably the greatest rock song of all time, Stairway To Heaven, by Led Zeppelin, from their 1971 Album, Led Zeppelin IV. Definitely near the top of my all time Top 100.
This, the first single, from the album “Blondes Have More Fun”, saw “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” reach number One, in December 1978, in the UK, and in February 1979, in the USA. One of my Top 100 favorite songs.
Nutbush City Limits is a song about the small town of Nutbush, in rural Tennessee, the hometown of Tina Turner. It was released, as a single, by Ike & Tina Turner, in 1973, shortly before their separation. It reached Number 4, in the UK, and Number 22, on the Billboard Hot 100.
From his 1973 album, “Aladdin Sane”, this song was the second single, from that album, reaching Number Three on the charts in the UK, in the Spring of 1973. Apparently it failed to make any impression in the USA. This was always one of my favorites, from that time, growing up in the UK, way …
This is probably my favorite Rolling Stones song. Paint It Black was released in 1966, reaching Number One in the UK and the USA, and around the World. It went on to be featured on the movie soundtracks, of “Full Metal Jacket” and “The Devils Advocate”.
Fool For Your Lovin’ by Whitesnake, was a hit in the UK in 1980. One we used to play at the White Horse pub, in Swanage. This is on my Top 100 records of all time list.
From their fifth album, A Farewell To Kings, this single, from 1977, Closer To The Heart, is by Canadian rockers Rush. This is one we used to play often, at the White Horse.
I played this song, for my first wife, on the day we met, in 1980. Later, playing it, for her, for the last time, the day she left, in 1986. Memories!
