Not a bad list, and I love it that he includes "Stupid Cupid." And yet Connie Francis is not in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. Those people are nuts. Thanks to "Rockin' Jeff" Meyerson for the link.

You're losin' your edge.'' My first impulse is to tell him I have a cozy place where he can put my column, but since he looks like a recently retired Hell's Angel, I rethink this option. Instead I ask him what he thinks would make a good piece.
''Best rock songs of all time,'' he says. ''That subject always starts arguments, especially if you don't put 'Stairway' on there.''
I realized he was right. Especially since the idea of putting ''Stairway to Heaven'' on such a list grosses me out. So I decided to take my biker buddy up on his idea. Twenty-four great songs, one for every hour of the day, picked by the Infallible Me."
