Guitar World used to ask popular guitarists to make a 60-minute playlist with the songs that have influenced them the most. So if you are a musician (especially if you write your own music), what songs have had the most influence on your sound?
They don't have to be in any particular order. The combined length of the songs just has to total 60 minutes (a minute or two more or less is fine). You may include the same artist more than once, if you so choose.
Metallica - Master of Puppets (8:38)
Iron Maiden - Fear Of The Dark (7:17)
Aerosmith - Dream On (4:25)
Judas Priest - Hellrider (6:24)
Soilwork - Stabbing The Drama (4:34)
Disturbed - Prayer (3:41)
Black Sabbath - Iron Man (5:58)
Alter Bridge - Addicted To Pain (4:17)
Ozzy - Crazy Train (4:55)
Harold Faltermeyer and Steve Stevens - Top Gun Anthem (4:10)
Creed - Higher (5:16, the song that made me want to play guitar)
And with that, my playlist clocks in at about 59 minutes.
