The best songs ever made

I will start with Sweet Child of Mine by Guns 'N' Roses

only one song per post, and you can't post right after yourself.
Kind of like the song name game, but you have to post great songs, instead of just songs.
Got it? Good

Edit: At least one word has to match the song title above it

Since you specified "grate" songs our choices would seem to be limited to songs about nutmeg, lemon peels, carrots or cheese. No matter. Here is my favorite cheese song.

The Cheese Song

I went into a restaurant last night to have supper
There were things that were in season and things that were out.
We had cow's head and cod's head and sheep's head and liver
And then after that we had ice-cream and stout.

And when I had tasted of everything
I told the waiter to go out and bring....

Cheese in, cheese in, waiter bring the cheese in do.

The waiter brought the cheese in, it was coloured like the rainbow;
Red and Yellow and Blue
The waiter broght the cheese in and the cheese was sneezing.
Sneezing like a cockatoo.

And when I walked out that restaurant, that little piece of Gorgonzolla walked out too.

It followed me home and it sat on the doorstep
It threatened to kill me if I shut it out.
So I opened the door and it ran in the lobby,

And Pa with the fender gave that cheese a clout.

Spoken: Pa hit it with the fender, Ma threw it down the drain. And when that cheese came back in the morning it was wearing a panama.

So we telephoned down for a couple of policemen,
And our lodger Jim The Militia came in,
He stabbed it three times with the neck of his bayonet,
And it ran in the garden behind the dustbin.

And when the rain was pouring down hard,
You could hear the cheese signing in our back yard:

"Everybody's loved by someone,
Everybody knows it's true.
Red cheese, green cheese, blue cheese, yellow cheese,
They're all loved it's true.

But...!

I'm a bit of Gorgonzola,
Sitting on the back yard wall,
And I seem to be the only bit of cheese,
That nobody loves at all.

Our next door neighbour came into the garden,
Smoking a penny cigar with great pride.
The cheese gave a gasp and it shouted, "I'm choking!"
And gave a few flip-flops and lay down and died....

Epilogue:

If you go down Paddington Green,
There's a tombstone to be seen.
And the words are neat indeed in memory of our cheese:

It fought against Russia, it fought 'gainst Japan,
It fought like a cheese and it died like a man,
Now it's buried in the ground with the grass growing round
And that's the end of the Gorgonzolla cheese.

Cheese Log - Brak

The Gratest song eva!
Bum bum bum...

Cheese log, cheese log
Cylindrical and yellow.
Cheese log, cheese log
Makes Brak a happy fellow!

Cheese log, cheese log you're my friend.
Though you go straight to my rear end.
It's not your fault that I get bloated,
I ate too many cheese logs once and I exploded!
But oh how I love cheese looooooooooooooooooooooooogs!

To quote Axl Rose himself-

"It's not every day you hear that song. Oh wait, yes it is."

For me, there are way too many songs I love to just name a few. I can name off bands, like Metallica before 2000, Steppenwolf, Rush, AC/DC, anything with Dio, some Led Zeppelin with Stairway to Heaven absolutely excluded, Jimi Hendrix, but you can't chose individual songs. That's not possible.

Eagles - Witchy Woman

Raven Hair and Ruby lips
Sparks fly from her finger tips
echoed voices in the night
she's a restless spirit on an endless flight

(Something like that anyway...been a few years since I've heard the song)
