Friday random ten: The top 500, part 7

We end the year with another set of songs in my collection from the Rolling Stone Top 500 list.

1. Foxy Lady – Jimi Hendrix (#152)
2. A Hard Day’s Night – The Beatles (#153)
3. Proud Mary – Creedence Clearwater Revival (#155)
4. The Sound of Silence – Simon & Garfunkel (#156)
5. Rock Around The Clock – Bill Haley & The Comets (#158)
6. I Can’t Stop Loving You – Ray Charles (#161)
7. Nothing Compares 2 U – Sinead O’Connor (#162)
8. Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen (#163)
9. Fast Car – Tracy Chapman (#165)
10. Let’s Get It On – Marvin Gaye (#167)

Wow, a whole list with no cover versions. I do have the Ike and Tina version of “Proud Mary”, but since I also have the original, that’s what gets included. I’ll add as an honorable mention that song #166 is “Lose Yourself”, by Eminem. I don’t have that, but I do have the Weird Al parody “Couch Potato”. So there you have it.

Entire song list report: Being home with the family is not conducive to listening to one’s iPod, so I took the week off from this. It’ll resume next week.
