The Greatest Songs of All Times

In no particular order, and for no particular reason:

"Hallowed be Thy Name", Iron Maiden

Simply the greatest guitar solo I have ever heard. It gives me chills to this day.

Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden

"Supersonic", Oasis

This is Oasis at their greatest swaggering coolness.

Supersonic - Oasis

"Zip City", Drive-By Truckers

Every note and word of this song has more emotion than most people's enitre careers. Restlessness, hope, and dead-end relationships in dead-end towns.

Zip City - Drive-By Truckers

"Enjoy the Silence", Depeche Mode

Mode at their dark melodic best.

Enjoy The Silence - Depeche Mode

"A Change of Seasons", Dream Theater

One of the greatest progressive rock epics ever recorded.

A Change Of Seasons - The Crimson Sunrise / Innocence / Carpe Diem / The Darkest Of Winters / Another World / The Inevitable Summer / The Crimson Sunset [EP Version] - David Prater

"Caught in the Middle", Dio

(Debateably) best track on the greatest hard rock album of the 80s.

Caught In The Middle - Dio

"Speed Kills", The Smashing Pumpkins

Lesser-known gothic masterpiece.

Speed Kills - The Smashing Pumpkins

"Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres", Rush

Rush at the height of their mytho-prog powers.

Cygnus X-1 Book II Hemispheres - Rush

"Stargazer", Rainbow

When the strings kick in at the end, you know it is that good.

Stargazer - Rainbow
