    The RJ 1000: The top 1000 rock classics of all time Discussion Thread

    Sirius xm is counting down their top 1000 rock classics of all time. I thought we might do a better job of it. In the spirit of this I would hope we would not look at the sirius web site for ideas. Pick your favs and let's see what or how far we get.

    I thought first we should determine who wants to play.

    I think the rules should be simple. I suggest:

    We just post first come first serve and put a number on it.

    Can only post one song at a time.

    Must wait 2 hours between each of your own posts.

    Can only pick one song per artist per day

    Max 5 picks per day.

    Anyone want to play?

    Ozzy SATO. no-one actually knows what the acronym stands for. some say it means sailing across the big ocean. it's notable that it's the song before diary of a madman. and i think it leads into it well.

    i would've said diary of a madman, the way it play violins in the background that blow you away when you anticipate them. but for me it's because if you think about the cartoon movie watershipdown, making a video to it with SATO is #1 on my bucket list. it just goes together and no-one has done it yet. probably one of the best albums of all time. maybe i'll finally make that video someday, and you'll see what i mean.

    interesting ... so we don't do it in numerical order?
    It certainly feels that way. But I'm distrustful of that feeling and am curious about evidence.

    Nope. Once we go we go. It then is about time we are only waiting for our own clock.

    No list to pick from.

    The list will be the players. We will be creating the 1000 best according to RJ.

    The other list will be 1-1000 as we post.

    If you are in agreement there will be one first round determined by number of players randomly selected to get us started. Then it will fall to the two hour rule for picking.

    I'm in but still not sure how it works. Can you give an example?
    If DMT didn't exist we would have to invent it. There has to be a weirdest thing. Once we have the concept weird, there has to be a weirdest thing. And DMT is simply it.
