I just voted for one:  Gimme Shelter (one of my favorite songs ever).

I love me some Guess Who, though, just not "These Eyes".  "No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature" is quality top to bottom.

Didn't know a lot of the songs but Cream is probably my favorite pick of the lot

Daydream believer and Time of the season were easy choices for me, and I'm surprised they only have so few votes so far. Space Oddity is also a classic. Other than that, I went with Touch me and Good vibrations - also great songs.

Gimme Shelter is head and shoulders above the rest on that list.

I love White Rabbit. It is my go-to karaoke song.

Daydream Believer isn't a favorite Monkee song of mine, but a timeless gem nonetheless.  Davy proves he isnt just in the band to sell more issues of Tiger Beat.

The Who is one of my top 3 favorite bands, and Pinball wizard is maybe my 34th favorite song of theirs.

Space Oddity and White Room
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Damn:  I didn't realize "Good Vibrations" is on that list.  Also one of my favorite songs ever (I actually use that one when someone asks "what's your favorite song ever).   So that one too.

Kev, I have a question.  And don't take this as a criticism, because it is not intended to be at all.  Just curiosity.  Question:  Is there a method to the songs you are choosing for these threads, or is it simply random?  I ask because I don't see what the pattern is, if there is one. 

But thanks for doing these.  They are fun.

I voted only for Pinball Wizard (although I'm with Cool Chris on this being maybe their 34th best song).  A few of the rest I don't know (at least not by name).  Those that I do know I consider just "meh" at best...except for the Doors song...everything the Doors did is just terrible.

Honestly, they are all random.  I think of the next fun topic and then pick the songs on the fly when doing the poll.  And yeah, I am doing it just for fun and, as always, to try and generate discussion.  :coolio

Gimme Shelter (still one of my favorite Stones songs, always good for a crank up of the volume)
Space Oddity ( :heart )
Nights in White Satin (instant goosebumps just typing that - the spoken section at the end is just marvelous, as well as that whole album)
Good Vibrations (classic, has to be my favorite of their songs)
Pinball Wizard (HOW DO YOU THINK HE DOES IT!? I don't know.. what makes him so good? GREAT song.)
