    Forgot Aguas de Marco. That song is poetry. I don't speak Portugese, but even in English they're some of the most beautiful lyrics ever written, and the way the chords kind of fall just meshes up with the words. I can't pimp this song enough, I think it's just about perfect.

    I love Rhapsody in Blue, but if I could only pick one Gershwin tune, it'd have to be "I've Got Rhythm." I know it's kind of cheesy, but it was hugely influential to bebop music. There are dozens of tunes based on that song.

    Re: Top Songs of All Time?

    Lately I cannot get songs out of my head that I have seen in movies.


    In "GoodFellas" I love the scene where Jimmy Conway (Robert De Niro) is smoking the cig in the bar and contemplating whacking Henry Hill ( Ray Liosi) while "Sunshine of Your Love" by Cream featuring Mr. Eric Clapton is played in the back ground. Awesome scene!!!

    Also in the movie "Deer Hunter" where De Niro and his buds are drunk as hell in the bar and singing "To Good To be True" by Frankie Valli .

    I guess something about De Niro in bars brings out the good music to me anyway!!

    Mmmmmm, yeaaaah. I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree with you on that. I like S&G but a lot of their stuff has been overplayed. I prefer Old Friends myself.

    I got a Johnny Cash CD a couple of years ago and he covered Wichita Lineman. This was very recent so his voice wasn't the greatest but it was an excellent cover.

    Since no one else has mentioned it, I'd like to bring up Mannish Boy by Muddy Waters.

    No Southern Rock (Needed?)

    Others I've overlooked?

    Besides, that's 45. Should I make it 50?
    As for the rap selection, others have mentioned The Sugar Hill Gang's Rapper's Delight, others have mentioned Aerosmith and Run DMC's Walk this Way, and both are excellent choices because Rapper's Delight really started the rap scene, it started the genre. Walk this Way made the genre commercial and accepted by the masses. It gave it 'cred', so to speak. However, as far as rap goes, the album I think of as being ground-breaking is NWA's Straight Outta Compton. I would have to nominate the title track off of that album as my selection for the rap genre. If it weren't for that album, rappers like Tupac, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg wouldn't even have a job.

    The start of the Thug Life movement in rap. Ugh. I'd rather breakdance.

    Re: Top Songs of All Time?

    With regards to airplay, "You've Lost Tthat Lovin' Feelin'" by the Righteous Borthers is the #1 song of the 20th century.

    I think it would be highly appropriate if a Phil Spector-produced song made our top 10 list.

    Re: Top Songs of All Time?

    I would be so bold as to say a top 40 "song" of "all time" (or at least, since we began documenting the songs onto a storage medium) hasn't been written in the past 20 years. Sure, on one's own "personal" list...but not since the first time we put stylus to wax.
