  • Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing
  • Lynyrd Skynyrd - Free Bird
  • Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
  • Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven

Yeah, they were new for me too :) I was trying to make a similar playlist, with songs like Free Bird: starts slow, then builds into rapid solos.
YouTube's auto suggestions are weird, but sometimes it hits the nail on the head.

I see you added even more, added them all once again!
For some reason I never heard Night Prowler before..

Added some other songs too:

  • Creedence Clearwater Revival - I Heard It Through The Grapevine
  • Black Sabbath - War Pigs

Night Prowler is the red-headed stepchild, because of it's connotation...
A serial killer/rapist in L.A. was a massive AC/DC fan, and called himself the Night Prowler. He also reportedly played this song in his car as he stalked his victims.
Still, it's an awesome song.

At first I thought they named it after him and was like.. what.
Then I read that he listened to this song, which makes more sense.

Right, I could have worded that better.
No, he named himself after the song. The actual song is, according to AC/DC members, about a teenaged boy who is sneaking into his GF's bedroom without her parents waking up.
