Published on 2002-07-23. Author : SpecialChem

Broomall, PA - M.A.B. Paints kicked off the official start of the summer painting season today by announcing the ten greatest painting songs of all time. The list was selected by a blue-ribbon panel of paint contractors, do-it-yourselfers and homeowners. AC/DC's classic rock anthem, Back in Black, tops the list of songs performed by some of the most recognizable acts in music history.

Sympathy for the Devil by The Rolling Stones (#2), Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run (#3), Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin (#4) and Aerosmith's Dream On round out the top five. While the list is littered with classic rock songs, two notable exceptions are Frank Sinatra's My Way (#10) and summertime staple Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffett (#6). The full list is below along with other notable painting songs that received votes.

"At MAB we realize that music has always played a big role in painting," said Jim Renshaw, General Manager of MAB Paints. "You would be hard pressed to find a contractor that doesn't tote a paint spattered radio to every job. As the painting season kicks off we thought this would be a fun way to highlight the music of painting and start some great debates about people's all-time favorites."
