What is your all time Favorite ROCK song

Recommended Posts

This is a tough one. After eliminating the stuff that is arguably blues (Stevie Ray) or country (Skynyrd) my choice is:

 

The Temples Of Syrinx

 

By Rush

 

Album: 2112

 

 

Honorable Mentions: Frank Zappa - Stevie's Spanking, Triumph - Blinding Light Show, Concrete Blonde - Carry Me Away

Rush
 
La Villa Strangiato.
'And exersise in self-indulgance in XII parts'
 
off Hemispheres

Although technically an instrumental, it was during a Rock period for Rush.
 
just an all out jam
 
 
 
Honorable mentions
Reo Speedwagon - Roll With the Changes
Allman Brothers - No One to Run With
Yes - Roundabout
Genesis - 
I'll shut up now.......

I'm still lame at posting pic's and Alex Harvey was elusive at best...His first and last solo record after TSAHB was called The Mafia Stole My Guitar...on side two of that record he does the greatest version of "Shaking All Over" that you will ever hear...Absolutely Killer. I bought the record back in 1979 and to this day it still sends shivers down my back bone...

For me, it's a toss-up between two songs from The Who.
 
Several Pink Floyd and Rush tunes come to mind, but I have to go with The Who. 
 
We Won't Get Fooled Again.  Who can forget this footage with the original band members and Townsend inventing slam-dancing.
 
 
 
Runner up: Love Reign On Me

 I saw this Who tour...1975...Love Reign On Me is a powerful song that will make any decent man cry...On Nick Cave's "Dig Lazarus Dig"LP he does a song called " Hold Onto Yourself"....with those Seagulls swirling in the background reminds me of the Who...I also recommend the Pixies latest effort...double LP @ 45 rpm...Indy Cindy...
