    Yeah it's still great, but I was around in 1970 when the top ten songs were:

    1. Layla - Derek and the Dominos
    2. Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel
    3. Let It Be - The Beatles
    4. Your Song - Elton John
    5. Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine - James Brown
    6. Lola - The Kinks
    7. Who'll Stop the Rain - Creedence Clearwater Revival
    8. Fire and Rain - James Taylor
    9. Paranoid - Black Sabbath
    10. All Right Now - Free


    Sabbath was in a class all its own.

    That's what I'm saying. There was nothing close to that sound back then. Truly revolutionary.
