Top 50 Iconic Songs

Some fella by the name of Dr Mick Grierson, from Goldsmiths, University of London used some form of mathematical/computational theory whatever to come up with the top 50 iconic songs and what a crock of shit his end list is (see here for the story and list).

Looking through the list I could probably agree with two or three, the rest are just pure crap down to and including a sodding cover song – shit if you’re going to call a song iconic, atleast credit it to the original artist.
Anyway, I (amongst probably 1,000’s of other bloggers) have decided to create my own top 50 iconic songs and if you don’t agree with me then tough shit, do I look like I give a fuck?

They’re not in any particular order, just as they come to mind.
