All of us have a soft spot for classic rock somewhere in us. Whether you found it on your own or you suffered through hours of your Dad's musical selections after one modern pop song played on the radio and he needed to "educate" you about real music. We've all heard more than our fair share of rock and you can't help but admit that you some of it was pretty damn good. Here are 6 of the best classic rock songs to sing along to. And if you claim you haven't heard these or don't like them, stop lying to yourself and just enjoy it.
1. Toto - Africa
You might not recognize this song by its title or artist but I promise you that you've heard the hook countless times before. A very chill and easy listen, enjoy this classic exploitative rock piece.
2. Billy Joel - Uptown Girl
Probably the most recognizable song on this list, it's also easily one of the best Rock songs of all time. Billy Joel is a legend still today and here's a glance into his early career with this upbeat auto-biography.
3. Dion - Runaround Sue
The oldest song on this list and probably the catchiest. You'll be humming this tune for hours after and by then you'll probably realize what the song is actually about and remember the good ole days when there was such a classy way to call your ex a tramp.
4. Rick Springfield - Jessie's Girl
If you had a friend called Jessie that had a girlfriend then you know he hated this song because you teased him all the time just by playing it. A classic piece of Rock memorabilia with an iconic guitar riff we all have jammed out to this song at least once in the last couple of years, whether at a frat party or on some playlist master's road trip selection.
5. Bryan Adams - Summer of '69
The most "rock" song on this list it instantly brings back nostalgia regardless of whether you were even alive in 1969 or not. The grizzly vocals and relatable lyrics tell the story of when life was carefree and easy, something we can all attest to. Bring out your air guitar for this one.
6. Duran Duran - Hungry Like The Wolf
A rock band and car sing along classic, you can't help but bob your head to this classic rock ballad. For some of us, Shrek might have been our first exposure to this song, but I think we can all agree that the original is the song in its prime.
These are just some of my favorite Classic Rock songs. I know I focused a lot on the 80s (it was a pretty good time for rock) and skipped some of the bigger obvious ones (sorry Journey fans) but I wanted to remind you guys of some of the less obvious ones. What did I miss? Anything I should add to my classic rock playlist? Let me know in the comments!
