Aerosmith’s Crazy featuring the then teenage Alicia Silverstone has 158 million views while Guns n Roses’ Sweet Child of Mine (full version) of about the same time has a mere 18 million views. The young be it male or female is more inclined to see barely clad beautiful girls than skill and real balladic execution of romantic love.
Shine on you crazy diamond has hardly 3 million viewers in youtube while nothing else matters has has 23. What does the young generation like to watch?

I could arrive at a decision completely reversed from the record put forth by Wikipedia. May be I have a queer favour for anything british or may be not; I like even ‘Rolling in the Deep’ by Adele 3 times more than I like the record holder Gangnam Style by the Korean.
