In reading the criteria I'm assuming that only songs released as singles were eligible for this list. Because of its length, "Stairway to Heaven" was never released as a single. "Helter Skelter" was released as a single in the UK.

JAWS THE STORY - PART 11
Roy Scheider was born in Orange, New Jersey. Heavy as a child due to a battle with rheumatic fever, when he was well enough he through himself into the ocean and swam off the extra weight. He also took up boxing, competing in the local Golden Gloves competition. After studying drama at Franklin and Marshall College, he joined the US Air Force. Upon his discharge, he headed to New York City, where he was soon appearing in productions of the New York Shakespeare Festival. He soon won an Obie (off Broadway) award for his performance in the play, "Steven D." In 1962 he made his film debut in the horror film, "Curse of the Living Corpse." He worked successfully through the 60s in both film and television. In 1971 he earned the rare distinction of supporting both Best Actor and Actress Oscar winners with roles in "The French Connection" and "Klute." For his work in "The French Connection" Scheider received his first Academy Award nomination as Best Supporting Actor. After losing the role of Father Karras in "The Exorcist" to Jason Miller, Scheider appeared in "The Seven Ups." His next role would make him a household name overnight. As Chief of Police Martin Brody in "Jaws," Scheider was the character audiences most identified with - the everyman who must rise above his own fears for the good of others. After "Jaws," Scheider appeared in "Marathon Man" and then reunited with "French Connection" director William Friedkin for "Sorcerer." Scheider was next cast as Michael in Michael Cimino's "The Deer Hunter." However, due to "creative differences" he left the project. In order to fulfill his contract with Universal, Scheider agreed to star in the sequel, "Jaws 2." He followed that box office hit with a Hitchcockian thriller, "Last Embrace." He then replaced "Jaws" co-star Richard Dreyfuss and stepped into the role of Joe Gideon in Bob Fosse's autobiographical film, "All That Jazz." For his work in this film, Scheider earned a must deserved Oscar nomination as Best Actor. In the 1980s he appeared in such box office hits as "Blue Thunder," "Still of the Night" and "2010." In 1993, he starred in Steven Spielberg's "SeaQuest DSV" on television. Still working in his 70s, Scheider lives on Long Island with his second wife, Brenda, and their two children, Christian and Molly. He also has a daughter, Maxamillia, from his first marriage to Cynthia, a film editor.
