Hmmm, I've only heard 5 of those songs. Maybe the time has come to rent some musicals.

Yeah, the Imperial March should be up there, it shouldn't have to have actual words. 'Blame Canada' deserves a place up there too.

I'm surprised that "Don't You Forget About Me" from Breakfast Club isn't on here.

Also, most of the songs on the list in some way is parodied by Futurama, Simpsons, Family Guy and others.

Everybody's Talkin', Midnight Cowboy.

Think Zapp.

Bah, this list is almost as bad as IMDB's Top 100 Films.

Where the hell is 'Scarecrow Attack' from House of 1000 Corpses? That song alone, to me, wipes out that list.

this list comprises of mainly songs from the old Musicals. As a fan of them I agree completely with the top 5.

But there are so many good soundtrack songs, as suggested by Faze, the Imperial March should have been included. Or the Raiders March, and no Bond Theme?

So many great songs missing. Some people often confuse "Old" with "Better".   tongue

Not saying that many old musicals aren't better than alot of newer ones, just saying that some songs obviously got bumped up the list because of their age.

I was surprised that they have missed a lot of Oscar winning songs like Born Free or Three Coins in the Fountain. But on the other hand who is knowing songs like "Fight the Power" from Do the Right Thing?

Are you kidding?  I thought that was pretty much universally known.

Why is "Over the Rainbow" number 1? It's well known, but is it really that good?

And "Springime for Hitler" at 80 is atrocious, especially considering some of the generic crap above it.

I think that "Imperial March" is a score, not a song.  A song must be sung by someone.

Ah, yes.  "Springtime for Hitler" is indeed a classic.  But where is "All God's Children Got Guns" from Duck Soup?
