Default Best Classic Rock Songs

I wanted to see what you think the best Classic Rock song is! It's all opinion, and if you choose a song not on the list, put it on the thread!

Also, I can't put every great song on the poll, but I would have loved to put Rush, ZZ Top, Aerosmith, and AC/DC in the poll

The Eagles - Hotel California

OR

Boston - Foreplay / Long Time

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.

If Happy Together by the Turtles is considered Classic Rock then it would be my choice

A lot of the tunes like Stairway, Dream On, anything by the Who or Boston, etc. that get regular play on the classic rock stations around here usually get treated like background noise or the station gets changed, but when this one comes on, I crank it:

Whole lotta love by Led Zeppelin. It represents what classical rock is all about in 5-6 minutes. Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones is also good

Oh ****, there's a poll. Didn't see that. Gotta go with A Day In The Life for that list. Classic brilliance.
