So, how many popular rock songs are written in 3/4 time?

Nothing political. Nothing to argue about. I'm just curious how many tunes you can think of that made it, say, in the top 100, that were 3/4 sigs.

I'll start off with "Lucky Man," by ELP.

Take it away, folks!

Good ones smoothie. Speaking of The Eagles, "Hollywood Waltz" (obviously).

Well, you said "popular" and this wasn't but what they hey....

"3/4" Moby Grape, on the ill fated second album. Like most of the stuff on that record, it has a beautiful start and then degenerates into chaos or boredom. Nice beginning though.

I didn't include "Hollywood Waltz" because it wasn't a hit. I do like that song however. Both are on the same album "One of These Nights".

The song "Saturday Night" from "Desperado" is also a waltz, but it also was not a hit.

Billy Joel's "Piano Man" is in 3/4 and Journey's "Lights" is in 6/8

I was thinking manic depression.

Kiss From A Rose, by Seal...I love jazz and rock waltzes.
Seal sings a lot of songs in 3/4 time. As a matter of fact he did a cover of Manic Depression on the JH Tribute CD several years ago.
