    Yes, I do like his music. A lot, in fact.

    Nobody could make a Top 20? Well okay then, Top 5 it is.

    I have no idea. I know it's not The Beatles, Paul Simon, Frank Zappa or Freddie Mercury lol. Seriously. But idk, maybe these are ok:

    Elton John
    Jimi Hendrix
    Yes (Chris Squire, Ian Anderson)
    Jimmy Page
    Marvin Gaye

    That's amusing. Ian Anderson was the front man for Jethro Tull. Jon Anderson sang lead vocals for most of Yes' albums.

    Yes and Jethro Tull are a couple of my all time favorite bands.

    Elton John, Jimmy Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin (Jimmy Page's band) were also phenomenal.

    Oops! Good one! I started this project years ago of rating thousands of pop/rock songs with some objectivity, and not because I ever liked them. I was quite meticulous and specific in my ratings, but never spent much time looking over the lives and details. So that's probably where I made that error. You can delete Ian Anderson from my list since he's not in Yes!

    The three greatest songs that eventually stuck out to me are:

    Tier 1
    Ray Vaughan's recomposition of Hendrix's Little Wing

    Tier 2
    Elton John's Tiny Dancer
    Vanity Fair's Hitchin a Ride (which has some great executional fails! but compositionally is solid as ever. The last quarter all comes together. Same with Little Wing, it takes some time to get there but it's legendary.)

    So overall, someone like Marvin Gaye with as amazing of vocals as Elton John, I'm not even sure if the former wrote much of his music. I just never cared enough about pop to look into it. I'm only going by the output, as well as his work with Terrell, terrific stuff for just pop. I'm avoiding jazz since I stopped listening to jazz when I was young, and I listen to pop just for scientific hobby.

    Yup. Apparently, Rush are the greatest group in the galaxy, but I already knew that. Oh, hang on. The thread didn't bear out that claim.

    Thanks for the heads up on Gåte. Til Nord was a great listen. Still waiting for Svevn to arrive. Hopefully won't be long. I don't speak a word of Norwegian, but I found the music very refreshing.
