Throughout the decades, there have been hundreds of great songs, but what is considered the greatest song of all time? The song may be a traditional, classical or musical number from a movie, or it may be a popular song produced by a professional singer. In any case, it has a special opening phrase.
The Rolling Stone list of the 500 greatest songs of all time is considered the definitive list. Its editors compiled the list based on two extensive polls. They asked 250 writers, artists and industry figures to choose the best songs of the past 50 years. Almost half of the songs on the list are new.
“Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin is a classic rock song, and it features one of Jimmy Page’s best solos. The song is one of the band’s most well-known compositions, and it is also used in the film Apocalypse Now.
