What’s your song of the century (1900-2000)
I have to go with American Pie

Don McLean American Pie

Touches on Elvis, Dylan (Jester), Holly, Valens, Big Bopper, Peter Seger (King) , Joan Baez (Queen), Lennon and the Beatles, The Byrd’s, The Rolling Stones, and Joplin.

Charles Manson, MLK, flower power, drugs, 60’s protests, moon landing, Football, Woodstock, Hell’s Angels, and the Miss America pageant.

Can’t get more American than that. Billy Joel tritely tried to do something similar and bombed with his We Didn’t Start the Fire.

Funny, I didn’t grow up in the 60’s but my dad loved this song and explained it to me and I end up singing it whenever I hear it. So, it gets my vote.

This is a perfect song. While it's not my personal favorite, I think it is in the argument of greatest song ever written.

Roy Orbison - Running Scared

It’s a song you could end the world to. Go out on top. GOAT.

Tears for Fears' "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" gets my vote.

quote:

Aaron Copland - Appalachian Spring
quote:

The music, scored for a thirteen-member chamber orchestra, was created upon commission of the choreographer and dancer Martha Graham

Originally, Copland did not have a title for the work, referring to it simply as "Ballet for Martha"—a title as simple and direct as the Shaker tune 'Tis the Gift to be Simple quoted in the music. Shortly before the premiere, Graham suggested Appalachian Spring, a phrase from a Hart Crane poem, "The Dance" from a collection of poems in his book "The Bridge."

Because he composed the music without the benefit of knowing what the title was going to be, Copland was often amused when people told him he captured the beauty of the Appalachians in his music

I believe She Loves You by The Beatles is a candidate. Like it or not that single changed music and the culture.
