Dude seriously? 
 

Kelly, that's how it is with this type of classifications that are contaminated with non-objective subjectivism. Second, the classic rock is not the only one kind of music that I listen to and which I prefer.
Hats off to (Roy) Harper - indeed is not as prominent on the note he got from me, but it has for me other qualities of these symbolic do not know - because you have not read my interpretation of this song on my blog. In writing this, I do not encourage you to read how important and symbolic event is hiding in this song. I just want to explain to you the reasons for my assessment of this song.

I repeat - it is important for my country, for me personally, too. For this reason, I added him to a few percent for the dramatic and momentous significance. As you noticed this is a subjective list. And this is my subjective impression - a little emotional.

Well, perhaps a little exaggerated. Kelly probably give all the songs  only maximum points, and, still on top of some eleven. :D

06. Hots On For Nowhere 10/15 (slightly better; more interesting rhythms, catchier, but still filler)

03. Fool In The Rain 9/15 (average)
