From Hell to Heaven

playing guitar Rockantenne today played the “100 rock songs for eternity”, a Top 100 that the listeners could vote for for the last weeks. The entire list is available here; Queen made no. 86 with We Are The Champions, (only) 31 with We Will Rock You and the Top 10 which looks like this:

10. AC/DC: T.N.T.
9. Guns N’ Roses: November Rain
8. AC/DC: Thunderstruck
7. Deep Purple: Smoke On The Water
6. Queen: Bohemian Rhapsody
5. Metallica: One
4. Deep Purple: Child In Time
3. Metallica: Nothing Else Matters
2. AC/DC: Highway To Hell
1. Led Zeppelin: Stairway To Heaven

Nice how heaven came after hell – but thanks to the two we-have-to-be-funny chatterboxes who presented the last few hours, there even wasn’t enough time before the 7pm news to play the winning title completely! :(

Alright, no.1 comes as no surprise – I’m rather amazed that One got so high up, even above BoRhap… or how do you see that? Or are you surprized about other places?

    Mich wundert, was Thundestruck da oben zu suchen hat…. aber über Geschmack soll man ja nicht streiten.
    Ohne Dir als ausgemachtem Queen-Fan das Wort reden zu wollen, hätte ich “We are the champions” in der Top10 erwartet ;-)

    Und wo ist “Locomotive Breath” von Jethro Tull? “Aqualung hats in die Top40 geschafft, aber ich find “Locomotive Breath” musikhistorisch wichtiger, jawoll!

    Ähm “Rock”songs?!?!? Das sind ja alles mehr oder weniger Balladen. Und auch die Künsterauswahl ist teilweise fraglich.

    Allerdings ist Stairway to Heaven IMMER auf Platz 1 bei solchen Listen und von daher keine Überraschung.

    Julia, auch Balladen können rockig sein, würde ich sagen…

    Stephan, mit Locomotive Breath stimme ich dir zu; und natürlich hätte ich auch nichts dagegen, alle 3 vertretenen Queen-Songs in der Top 10 zu sehen. :mrgreen:
