This list is based upon many memories that have been collected in my lifetime of listening to rock and roll.

I grew up listening to the radio or a stereo player nearly every day of my life, sometimes 4 or 5 hours per day. There is a particularly strong emotional connection when it comes to listening to old classic rock love songs like "I only Want to Be With You" by Dusty Springfield. Later in her life she put together a masterpiece with the Pet Shop Boys called "What Have I done to Deserve This"

I never tire of listening to powerful ballads from Bruce Springsteen like Born To Run and Jungleland. Across the ocean, the Kinks also produced their own special ballads like Lola and Celluloid Heroes.

Listening to powerful guitar riffs always struck a chord when I listened to classic rock. Several of my favorite powerful guitar hits included Voodoo Chile by Hendrix, Funk #49 by a very young Joe Walsh of the James Gang (they played at my high school prom) and Layla by Derek and the Dominos (featuring a very young Eric Clapton). Kashmir featuring Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, Badge featuring Eric Clapton of Cream and Mississipi Queen featuring Leslie West of Mountain also contained some powerful guitar.

Another characteristic of a strong rock classic was a unique vocal. I especially love the powerful female vocals of Grace Slick (Jefferson Airplane) in White Rabbit and Annie Wilson (Heart) in Barracuda.

Of course the male leads were also represented very well. Bruce Springsteen (Born to Run and Jungleland), Jim Morrison of the Doors (Tell all the People and Peace Frog) and Freddie Mercury of Queen (Bohemian Rhapsody and Radio GaGa) all had distinct sounds that could be spotted instantly.

Top Classic Rock Songs have a distinct flavor and always bring out strong emotions in the life of people who listened to them. These tunes will live on forever as part of a baby boomer culture that produced some of the best music ever written free game hack and performed. Just ask the experts, like Randy Jackson from American Idol.
