Lets say you've been asked, as the end of the world approaches, to load one song per artist/group into the computer going in a time capsule to be launch into space.
pick only one song per artist/group, many ways to go, most popular, most representative, your favorite, etc.
to get it started, some of mine:
Beatles : All My Loving, wanted a song that had them all participating, narrowed down from All you need is love, She Loves You, A Hard Days Night
in no particular order (after the Beatles of course):
Stones : Satisfaction
Who : Won't get fooled again
U2 : Pride (in the name of love)
Bruce : Born to run
Queen: Bohemian Rhapsody
Simon & Garfunkel : The Sound of Silence
Eagles : Hotel California
Fleetwood Mac : The Chain
The Police : Every Breath You Take
Toad the Wet Sprocket : I will not take these things for granted
Tom Petty : Refugee
Van halen : Unchained
REM : So. Central Rain
James Taylor : Country Road
Elton John : Candle in the wind
Aerosmith : Dream on
Michael Jackson : Billy Jean
Dexys Midnight Runners : Come on Eileen
What are some of yours?
