    For me, my favorites are:

    Back In Black; click, click, click, click, click, click, CLACK CLACK! And when that heavy E chord first hit, the intro instantly became a classic.


    Next, I love the starting riff of 'Sweet Home Alabama', Idk, but there's just something about that clean tone I guess.

    Next-next: Blue On Black (not to be confused with above). This one, a lot of you may not have heard, but it's by Kenny Wayne shepherd;


    I think I like it because of the heavy drum beat, which perfectly accompanies the driving blues-rock beginning.


    Last, but certainly not least: 'Mary Had a Little Lamb'. The SRV one of course.

    Keith said that he and Jagger wrote it, the Stones played it, but Linda Ronstadt owns it.

    Keith Richards' "Take It So Hard" gets me going.

    Beatles' "Day Tripper" comes to mind.
    But then there's "What You're Doing" with George on his Ric 360-12.
    But, just to be cute, "A Hard Days Night."

    The Rolling Stones' "The Last Time."
    And I should probably mention "Satisfaction."

    Yeah, 1965-heavy here. Great year for music.
