There's no way I could possibly make a statement like that.

I mean, generally, what's the order of importance for you?  Obviously there will be exceptions.

Well, Melody and Harmony both sound like stripper names, and Rhythm is what you would (hopefully) have while banging them, so based on that, I'd have to say....uhh....

Ok, I don't know where I was going with that. But that's alright, because this thread makes no sense to begin with.

No.  You forgot to include ensemble type. 

The size of a group playing a piece, as well as what instruments are part of its orchestration can play a large role in the overall sound.

A 18 man big band, 13 of whom are playing tubas, and the rest of whom are either a pianist/synthesizer or percussionist, is going to sound a lot different than a whiny girl and her acoustic guitar, even if they make recordings of the same exact song.

If you don't have rhythm, melody and harmony in a song, you have a problem (nonmelodic metal excluded, bless its heart).

you can also have drone music, which often doesn't have rhythm.
And you can also have atonal music, which doesn't have harmony, but if our collective knowledge of music is such that threads like these are being made, we don't want to cover too much in the first lesson.

Or you could have spoken post-modern comedy imposed over a friend tuning his guitar while suffering from bad gas, which would have none of them, if he's got poor pitch.
