I'll give it go later, but "all-time" is going to be difficult as I can't predict the future and I've only been alive for a quarter of my estimated life expectancy so far.
I can't even think of a top 100 list of artists, there are too many...

Rutherford what a tune. completely forgot jimi hendrix & along the watchtower

i would add it to my shortlist but after about an hour & half of going through this, this afternoon. i managed to shed 90%. problem ive got a shortlist thats hard enough as it is. with it consisting of 63 songs from 47 different artists some biggest artist in the world some you may never have heard off. that needs to be down to 20 LOL :thinking: :please:

here we go. i will say in nicest possible way, the person who came up with this idea i bloody hate. dont get me wrong its been fun compiling it listening to many different genres old & new. but getting it down to 20 was horrendous. id got a top 30 then top 25 i cant cut any more & very nearly gave up with top 21. i also trying to get a balance between upbeat, ballads & very good songs from some people who are huge & some that are lesser known . actually dont know if it's just me but picking best song by 1 artist was tough enough
:thinking::givemestrength: :bawl::D
