Friday random ten: The songs Rolling Stone forgot

Here’s their list. And here are ten songs I would have tried to include if I’d had a hand in making their list.

1. Sultans Of Swing – Dire Straits
2. Sunday, Bloody Sunday – U2
3. And When I Die – Blood, Sweat & Tears
4. Take Five – Dave Brubeck Quartet
5. American Pie – Don McLean
6. That’s Right (You’re Not From Texas) – Lyle Lovett
7. Paradise By The Dashboard Light – Meat Loaf
8. After The Fire – Pete Townshend
9. Solsbury Hill – Peter Gabriel
10. My Old School – Steely Dan

With the exception of “Take Five”, I limited myself to the kind of music Rolling Stone generally pays attention to. There’s no big theme here or any claim on my part that these songs are Important or Influential in some way. They’re just songs I really like. What might you have included?
