Tupelo Honey-Van Morrison

Dude, that song is about as awesome a tune as there is. Richie Havens also did a very nice version in D tuning at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1969 or 1970.

Supposedly, the song is a love song to the USA, not a woman, but I haven't been able to corroborate that.

Don't know about that but you can find tupelo honey only in the American south. It's something of a regional specialty for all you fans of the apiarist's art and science....more black art than anything else if you ask me.

I did see Ritchie Havens on stage at Woodstock....please do not alert any of my professional colleagues LOL.

If the topic is classic rock songs, then I think half of those listed can be eliminated, because they go into the heavy metal gendre. I know that I'm showing my age, but during my time growing up in the 60s when rock ruled and you made out in the back seat of your parents car in a closely guarded secret wooded area where the cops wouldn't be likely to show up, these were my favorites:

1. Runaway - Del Shannon
2. Save the Last Dance for Me - The Drifters
3. The Great Pretender - The Platters
4. Blueberry Hill - Fats Domino
5. Peggy Sue - Buddy Holly
6. Blue Suede Shoes - Carl Perkins & Elvis Presley
7. La Bamba - Richie Valens
8. Rock Around The Clock - Bill Haley
9. Leaving It Up To You - Dale & Grace
10. Duke of Earl - Gene Chandler

I could list many more, but I think that you would have no idea what I'm talking about.

"Free Bird" Lynyrd Skynyrd.

vomit This song so sucks for me it's not even funny. The only thing I can think of when I hear this is blowing my brains out

Just had to say.... yes   yes   yes   yes   yes 

Really can't stand the 5 minutes of noise that people consider dueling guitars. If that's a freakin duel, both guitarists were dead before they even started.

"Nights In White Satin" The Moody Blues

Worst. Song. Ever. (......GONG!)

SHAME ON YOU!  Sad


The worst 'classic rock' would have to be just about anything by the Rolling Stones, U2, REM and Aerosmith.
Over-rated nonsense!

Have to say, back in the 70's 8-tracks were the shit. Wore quite a few of them out myself, had an 8-track player in my '68 Dodge Charger, complete with the slide mount...

Damn, why did you get rid of it?

I put in a couple of years as a DJ (or "radio personality" as they call it) at a local album-rock FM station in my former home town in Central Virginia, so I'm just gonna skip the whole debate about "Stairway" vs. "Hotel California" vs. In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" and list some lesser known tracks (radio guys who pretend to be in the know always use "track" instead of "song") that IMHO have stood the test of time:

In no particular order.

"Godzilla" Blue Oyster Cult (don't know how to put the umlaut over the 'O')
"Ten Years Gone" Led Zeppelin
"Wild Thing" (live version) Jimi Hendrix
"Chip Away The Stone" Aerosmith
"Whipping Post" Allman Brothers
"No Particular Place To Go" Chuck Berry
"Long Tall Sally" Little Richard
"Midnight Rambler" Rolling Stones
"Ruby Tuesday" Rolling Stones
"Unchained" Van Halen
"Gloria" The Doors
"Waiting In Vain" Bob Marley
"Straight To Hell" The Clash
"Pursuit Of Truth No Matter Where It Lies" -- Metallica

As Superfly said, 8 tracks and "Quadraphonic" sound were all the shit in the 70's!


Superfly, my holilday greetings to you:

"Nights In White Satin" The Moody Blues

Worst. Song. Ever. (......GONG!)

Again, I agree with Superfly; given this was overplayed back in '73 but, the end portion is classic.

Now in regard to the dreck of the litter pan for the "Classic Rock Era," to musical abortions in my opinion were and still are:


  • My Sharona-The Knack (I used to say Nuke the Knack!)
  • The Bay "Shitty Rollers" Their big song was such a shitter I forgot it's title!
  • Clap For The Wolfman-Guess Who (I liked those Chunky boys from Canada's other stuff!)
  • Down By The Lazy River -The Osmond Brothers (The Osmonds trying to get down was a get don't)
  • Orleans-Still The One
  • Ledo Shuffly and Low Down-Bozz Scaggs
    and who could forget an otherwise great artist's only number one song:
  • My Ding A Ling-Chuck Berry (1 song that wasn't making merry with Chuck Berry!)


I have to end on an up note so some more cool classics!

  • The Immigrant Song-Led Zeppelin (Stairway has been covered)
  • I Got A Line On You, Laughing (Guess Who)
  • Band On The Run - Wings/Paul McCartney (OK so it was a bit poppy and played out) But still in the tradition of Uncle Albert/Admrial Halsey. After Band,
    Paul M and Wings crashed
  • Will It Go Round In Circles, Nothing for Nothing, Outa Space-Billy Preston
  • Dear Mr. Fantassy-Traffic (The number one pick for those early 70's TV Movies of the Week where the rich white teens that had it all hate their parents, tune in and tune out with drugs and Dear Mr. Fantassy plays; and a lot of those rich druggie girls were hippie chick wannabe minx's!

WHOA, Wait a minute!
I was praising 'Nights In White Satin'!
It was 4Holer that bashed the song, not me.

That Marantz 4240, my friend has and inspired me to get the Marantz 4400 quad receiver.

The realistic 8track deck you posted is stereo. Not quad.
But here is my system anyway.
