in my opinion these are some of the greatest songs ever- a good song should make you see, feel, and think.

Crazy Train- Ozzy Osbourne
House of the Rising Sun- Animals
Simple Man- Skynard
Paranoid- Black Sabbath
Stairway to Heaven- Zeppelin
Dude Looks Like a Lady- Aerosmith
Start Me Up- Rolling Stones

"Dude Looks Like A Lady"

...you just lost the entire response I was thinking of.
Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time
For y'all have knocked her up.
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit.

This list disappoints me. I cannot make a list as of yet; my musical experiances are only growing, so I find new favorite songs every day.

Exactly. 3 years ago I might have agreed with you almost entirely on that list but I've already changed and have new favorite songs. But my favorites are not necessarily "The greatest songs ever". Those are good songs though.

So basically, you didnt bang a girl, because she was shocked how small it was.

Are you joking? You list more Beethoven symphonies than Mozart, yet you don't even mention his sonatas?! You sir, are a buffon, and clearly know absolutely nothing about music during the beginning of the romantic era, and even left out the famous symphonies of the impressionist-era.

Edit: Fuck! I forgot Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. It's my favorite Classical song.
