I think it's damn near impossible to narrow down the top 5 drumming songs. I don't think I could narrow down my top 5 drumming songs in any genre let alone rank the top 5 pieces in music as a whole. It's tough enough to rank your top 5 drummers let alone their individual works.

Lipstick Vogue - Elvis Costello (Pete Thomas on drums)

Dreaming - Blondie (Clem Burke. An 'all about the song' man if there ever was one!)

It's Late - Queen (Roger Taylor. Genius on every record)

My Affair - Kirsty MacColl ( Hell if I know who it is, but the afro-cuban-pop thing this dude is throwing down is pretty rock fucking solid).

Young Lust - Aerosmith (Joey Kramer is one the most underrated guys to ever play the game.)

Nobody mentioned a song that made more drummers pick up sticks than all others put together:

Inna Gadda Davida - Iron Butterfly!!!

And the next four are (in no particular order):
What IS Hip - Tower of power (Unbelieveable drive!)
We Will Rock You - Queen (Drums DEFINE this tune!)
Moby Dick - Led Zeppelin (oh come on, admit it, this one always makes you smile!)
The Black Page - Zappa (written FOR a drummer... it should be the definition of a drum song!)
The Freq
