Physical Graffitti and Led Zeppelin II by Led Zeppelin.

Chaos/Creation In Backyard, London Town and Flaming Pie by Paul McCartney

All the UK Beatles albums

The Mick Taylor era and Brian Jones era UK Stones albums

Creatures Of The Night and Revenge by KISS

And everything by Yours Truly (Queen, particularly The Works and Innuendo)


As you can probably deduce by now, I listen to albums. Not songs.

Well I'm asking mostly about Queen songs, but you can also include other bands if you like.



Thanks for the answers everyone,

How are we supposed to take this seriously when someone has put not ONE but TWO Pet Shop Boys tracks in the Masterpiece category?



Isn't that a "FOUL" or something?  I'm blowing my whistle and throwing a flag right now.

What's the deal with the whole Pet Shop Boys-hating over here?

I hate lists such as these, because, inevitably, I'll leave something out. And, how does one define masterpiece? Really?
Still, I will give it a go, here, on a personal level.

Bo Rhap(there are many Queen songs which are favorite songs--there IS a reason I am a Queen fan, but, so many are a close second to Bo Rhap, I decided to leave them off)

Baba O'Riley(almost up there with old Bo Rhap, for me)
Dream On
Hotel California(atmospheric to the max, man)
Hell's Bells
Freebird
Don't Look Back
Renegade
The Chain(more atmospheric stuff for me)
Hallelujah
Gimmee Shelter
The Load Out/Stay
What's Goin' On
Everyday People
Blue Eyes Cryin' In The Rain

Crap...already, I've forgotten Hey Jude and Imagine. How could I??
