8. Hadn't thought about Dear God in a while.
I have an album here somewhere, I think. Yeah, that's right... a record! To bad I don't have a record player.

11. Beatles: Strawberry Fields Forever
Edited on Sat Jan-29-05 08:59 PM by ryban
Believe it or not it's the cellos that make this tune rock! Put on some headphones and turn it up.

If your rock has to have guitars, try Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except for Me and My Monkey on the Beatles White Album.

Here are some of my other favorites:

Can't you hear me knocking -- Rolling Stones
5:15 -- The Who
An Cat Dubh -- U2
Oh My God -- Police
No Woman No Cry (live version w/great lead guitar solo ) -- Bob Marley
Tie Your Mother Down -- Queen
The Rhythm of the Heat -- Peter Gabriel
Golden Years -- David Bowie
One More Cup of Coffee -- Bob Dylan
LA Woman -- Doors
Living for the City -- Stevie Wonder
Sign o' the Times -- Prince
Give Ireland Back to the Irish -- Wings
