I dont mind most of those songs you listed. Theyre not the songs Id have chosen, but they are good ones.

Below is my list:

1. Baba O'Reiley by The Who

2. Hello, This Is Joanie (The Telephone Answering Machine Song) by Paul Evans

3. Just One More Night by Yellow Dog

4. Band Of Gold by Freyda Payne

5. The Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin

6. Delta Dawn by Helen Reddy

7. Dont Stop by Fleetwood Mac

8. Emma by Hot Chocolate

9. In The Flesh by Blondie

10. Ebony Eyes by Bob Welch



Its so hard limiting it to 10 songs because theres so many others Id love to put in that list...Like China Grove by The Doobie Brothers, I Can Help by Billy Swan, Lost In Love by Air Supply and Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush.

What?  No Eagles songs in these lists?!!  :o

My list would include 'Desperado' (^), 'Right Down The Line' (Gerry Rafferty) and 'Everything I Own' (Bread)...but like others have said, it's very hard to narrow it down to 10...

I really don't think i can narrow down my top 100 list, which is 110 songs long.
