WHOA, picking any 'Top 50' (let alone a top one or two) is difficult.

The one thing notable is that the songs that rarely made it into the 'Top....whatever' categories can sometimes be known as "the best under-rated songs" - these are not always the "one hit wonders," but songs from bands whose songs have made it into the 'Top......whatever' categories!

Rough Draft—

1. “Stairway to Heaven,” Led Zeppelin

2. “We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions,” Queen

3. “Unforgiven,” Metallica

4. “Band on the Run,” Paul McCartney and Wings

5. “Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves,” Cher

6. “Foreplay/Long Time,” Boston

7. “Baby Come Back,” Player

.


And I’m kind of going, 50% what is my best experience listening to a song, and 50% how much staying power does it have.

Again, this is my Rough Draft.

Dear Reader, if you so wish, I encourage you to jump in and make your own top 5 or top 25, or perhaps three in the middle such as numbers 25, 26, 27.

Or back to the original thesis of one in the Top 50 and two which are excellent but not quite on the list. However you wish to play it, so to speak! :jester:
