" This enduring anthem was written on an ironing board in a darkened florida bedroom by Allman. Leaping off with a rumbling Berry Oakley bass line, rife with tormented blues-ballad imagery and punctuated by Duane Allman's knifelike guitar incisions, the song is best appreciated in the 23 min. version on At The fillmore East."

from the 500 greatest songs of all time from rolling stone. now whether you take any stock in these lists...bitter sweet symphony at 382? or tiny dancer at all, it was good to see that the abb at least made the list. perhaps someone out there may pick up the first allmans album and put down the r. kelly #406.

i would've thought that ramblin' man would've made the grade...great comeback song after all the grief and sorrow the band went through...

Well, the band that did Bittersweet Symphony was sued by Stones' old managers because they used an uncredited sample from an orchestral version of Miss You... which makes me wonder if the ABB might've made it higher on the list if they'd used somebody else's songs.

I skimmed that list and was dumbfounded to see ABBA's Dancing Queen in the top 500. I didn't bother to read the text under that listing.

I noticed that there didn't seem to be any instrumentals listed; maybe that was part of the ground rules.

Tom Petty and Neil Young seemed under-represented.
No Dickey Betts songs (as if Blue Sky, RM, Seven Turns, and BWIAB aren't good enough?)
No John Prine or John Hiatt songs?

That list was a joke, literally... Rolling Stone is one of the worst music magazines around... they should just be called 'Rolling Mainstream'
