For a long time I've considered these two the peak of songwriting in classic rock, but I'd have a hard time arguing that Stairway to Heaven isn't equally as well written, if not better. I think your list is fine in terms of historical significance as hits, but none of the listed tracks overwhelm me like the two above.
Hotel California is such an amazing song.

Oh my God. I remember when I listened to it for the first time. I was blown away!

Disagree on this one. I love Whole Lotta Love, but Satisfaction is so boring.

That daltrey scream is one of the top 10 moments of rock.

True, I almost cried when I read about it.
