When I saw the daily prompt I was super excited to write about my favorite riffs. I love music! Undoubtedly, music plays an important role in my life. It truly makes my world go round. Unquestionably, my dad was a huge influence on my musical taste, which you’ll see in the list below. For this list, I’ve put them in no specific order. Moreover, while I’m not writing specifically about guitar riffs, I think you’ll find guitar riffs are heavily favored in my list.
Here’s a list of my favorite riffs (in no particular order) to include the music video where available:
15. Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne
14. Revolution by The Beatles
13. Enter Sandman by Metallica
12. Sweet Child of Mine by Guns N’ Rose
11. Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
10. Machinehead by Bush
9. You Shook Me All Night Long
8. Day Tripper by the Beatles
7. Seven Nation Army by the White Stripes

There you have it, my short list of my favorite riffs. Not surprisingly, I have many of these songs on both my hockey and my 5k playlist. Are any of these songs on your playlist? If so, which ones? If not, what’s on your list of favorite riffs?
I love music. It is always on no matter where I am. I get it from my mom though, she can’t do anything without music 🙂 Great music, great post!!
Thanks Jessica! Its funny how as an adult my music tastes closely mirrors my dad. Although, admittedly, I enjoy pop and Spanish music a lot more than he ever has, but that might be because I’m a Zumba teacher.
Oh ya, the music I listen to is completely my parents. It wasn’t always, I had my moments in the scary metal and teeny bop stuff but I’ve leveled out back in the 1970’s era 🙂 I like it there! Yes it would be a bit tough to Zumba to Ozzy!!
You have great taste in music 😉
Thanks Paul! Glad you enjoyed the list.
