A lot of you will remember that George Harrison was found guilty of plagiarism after he wrote "My Sweet Lord", which sounded an awful lot like The Chiffons' "She's So Fine". Well, George was fairly bitter over having to give up half of his hard-earned, so he decided to pen this "answer song". My favourite George song -

This Song - George Harrison

Here's one which brings back childhood memories, my mother used to sing it while she was ironing - American Pie ~ Don McClean

'American Pie' is a classic, except when Madonna did it!

My favourite glam rock band, and one of their best songs.

The Sweet- The Six Teens

This thread has brought it home to me just how much of a rock (& prog. rock)-chick I am, at least in spirit! Showing my age, I guess shocked

Who remembers just how gorgeous "The King" was, not to mention a fantastic performer and singer ? - Ben ~ Michael Jackson

As Tryst showed us earlier, Britpop during the 80s and 90s served up some great stuff. Here is another (one of the best IMO)

Common People - Pulp

Here's a song that is as much a social commentary as it is a song. It was released in 1975 -

Girls In Our Town - Margaret Roadknight

Just on the Britpop thing again, this is the song that instantly made me a Beautiful South tragic (bearing in mind that they had no airplay at all in Australia) - Perfect 10 - Beautiful South
