Mine are all from the 70s or late 60s. How about you?

Here are mine. These are the songs that make me stop and listen, and almost make me want to genuflect.

Rolling Stones - Sympathy for the Devil (1968)

Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven (1971)

Rush - 2112 (1976)

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Free Bird (1973)

Yes - Roundabout (1971)

This is one of those threads I would love to answer but like Incriptus there is simply no way I can narrow it down. Even a top fifty is difficult and that is keeping it to one song per performer. I will say without that stipulation my list would be Springsteen heavy. Here is a short list of songs that have a special significance because they are attached to some particular point in my life. I am going to run over the limit by a bit. A couple are from the same artist.

The Rising-Springsteen- most need no reason why.
Jungle Land-Springsteen- a song of being lost in a world where time and mistakes are always repeating. My interpretation anyway. Fit in well for me as a young boy.
All along the Watchtower-Hendrix. A bit before my time but blew me away when I listened to his rendition. It evokes a feeling like Jungle Land with a thunder storm added.
Scarecrow- Mellencamp- growing up in a rural setting I had family and friends who lost their homes during that time because of issues they could not control.
Oh Mickey-Toni Basil-Ha I missed April Fool day this will have to do. This one is on nobodies favorite list. Not even on her own list.
We Are The World-pretty much everybody they could cram onto the recording- no explanation needed.
A small sampling.
