The final recording of ‘Yesterday’ was so different from other works by the Beatles that the band members vetoed the release of the song as a single in the UK. However, it was issued as a U.S. single in 1965 reaching No.1. ‘Yesterday’ was voted the best song of the 20th century in a 1999 BBC Radio 2 poll of music experts and listeners and was also voted the No.1 pop song of all time by MTV and Rolling Stone magazine the following year. McCartney composed the entire melody in a dream one night, but didn’t complete the lyrics until much later. He borrowed an acoustic guitar from Bruce Welch, in whose house they were staying, and completed the work.

‘All Along the Watchtower’ by Bob Dylan initially appeared on his 1967 album John Wesley Harding, and it was the second single from the album but it did not chart. The Hendrix version, released six months after Dylan’s original recording, became a Top 20 single in 1968 and was ranked 47th in Rolling Stone magazine’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Dylan has described his reaction to hearing Hendrix’s version: “It overwhelmed me, really. He had such talent. Strange how when I sing it, I always feel it’s a tribute to him in some kind of way.”

When the band rejected his first offer of a composition, ‘Suffragette City’ (which later appeared on The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars), Bowie wrote ‘All the Young Dudes’ in short order especially for them, allegedly sitting cross-legged on the floor of a room in London’s Regent Street, in front of the band’s lead singer, Ian Hunter.

‘‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ is a song written by Bob Dylan and released on his album ‘The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan’ in 1963. Although thought of as a protest song, it poses a series of questions about peace, war and freedom. The refrain “The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind” has been described as “impenetrably ambiguous: either the answer is so obvious it is right in your face, or the answer is as intangible as the wind”. In 1999 the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, and in 2004 it was ranked #14 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Ray Davies stated in a 2008 interview, “It was a fantasy about my sister going off with her boyfriend to a new world and they were going to emigrate and go to another country.” It holds spot #42 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Musicians Paul Weller and Damon Albarn cite the song as their favourite of all time.

She liked to play dice and I really didn’t know much about it, but I got it off her and managed to make the song out of that.‘Tumbling Dice’ was written to fit Keith’s riff.

Richards’ throwaway three-note guitar riff – intended to be replaced by horns – opens and drives the song. The song gave the Stones their first US number one in June 1965. In the UK, the song initially played only on pirate radio stations because its lyrics were considered too sexually suggestive. When released in August 1965, it became their fourth UK number one. The song is considered to be one of the all-time greatest rock songs ever recorded. In 2004 Rolling Stone magazine placed ‘Satisfaction’ in second spot on its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

20th Century Boy was recorded on 3 December 1972 in ToshibaRecording Studios in Tokyo, Japan.The single version of the track fades at three minutes thirty nine seconds, however the master tape reveals that the song ended in nearly a full three minutes worth of jamming.

The lyrics are, according to Marc Bolan, based on quotes taken from notable celebrities such as Muhammad Ali. Although the lyrical content of a lot of Marc Bolan’s songs is ambiguous, analysis of the multi track recordings of 20th Century Boy reveals the first line of the song to be “Friends say it’s fine, friends say it’s good. Everybody says it’s just like Robin Hood,” and not the often misquoted “…just like rock ‘n’ roll.”

‘Jeepster’ was released as a single on 5 November 1971 by the record label Fly. The single peaked at No. 2 in the UK Singles Chart, and was controversial in that Fly Records released the song without singer Marc Bolan’s prior permission. Bolan had just left Fly for EMI, which had given him control of his own label: T. Rex Wax Co. Records. The music and rhythm are similar to that of the Howlin’ Wolf song ‘You’ll Be Mine’, written by Willie Dixon. In interviews, Marc Bolan has acknowledged that he “lifted it from a Howlin’ Wolf song”. It also has similarities with Roy Orbison’s song ‘You’re My Baby by Johnny Cash.

‘Jeepster’ was released as a single on 5 November 1971 by the record label Fly. The single peaked at No. 2 in the UK Singles Chart, and was controversial in that Fly Records released the song without singer Marc Bolan’s prior permission. Bolan had just left Fly for EMI, which had given him control of his own label: T. Rex Wax Co. Records. The music and rhythm are similar to that of the Howlin’ Wolf song ‘You’ll Be Mine’, written by Willie Dixon. In interviews, Marc Bolan has acknowledged that he “lifted it from a Howlin’ Wolf song”. It also has similarities with Roy Orbison’s song ‘You’re My Baby by Johnny Cash.

“Tutti Frutti’ was written by Little Richard along with Dorothy LaBostrie, who cleaned up the overly sexual lyrics. Recorded in 1955 it became his first major hit record. With its opening cry of “A-wop-bop-a-loo-bop-a-wop-bam-boom!” and its hard-driving sound and wild lyrics, it became not only a model for many future Little Richard songs, but also a model for rock & roll itself. In 2007, it was voted No.1 on Mojo’s Top 100 Records That Changed The World, hailing the recording as "the sound of the birth of rock & roll”.

‘Shakin’ All Over’ was written by frontman Johnny Kidd and reached #1 in the United Kingdom in August 1960. Kidd was quoted as saying “When I was going round with a bunch of lads and we happened to see a girl who was a real sizzler we used to say that she gave us ‘quivers down the membranes’. It was a standard saying with us referring to any attractive girl… I can honestly say that it was this more than anything that inspired me to write ‘Shakin’ All Over’.” The BBC’s Bob Harris said of the song: “One of possibly only two genuine Rock’n’Roll singles, the other being ‘Move It’ by Cliff Richard”.

‘Pictures of Matchstick Men’ is the first hit single by Status Quo, released in November 1967. It reached number seven in the UK charts and number twelve on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming their only hit single in the United States. The song opens with a single guitar repeatedly playing a simple four note riff before the rhythm guitar comes in with chords and the drums and lyrics begin. Francis Rossi said about the song: “I wrote it on the bog. I’d gone there to get away from the wife and mother-in-law. I used to go into this narrow frizzing toilet and sit there for hours, until they finally went out. I got three quarters of the song finished in that khazi.”
