Signature Songs of the Decades

I was just thinking the other day about songs that would be considered signature songs of a respective decade.  It’s hard to boil these type of things down to one song but here are mine (click on the highlighted song titles to view/listen to the songs/videos):

50’s“Rock Around the Clock” – Bill Haley and the Comets.  Yes, Elvis was The King, but this one got the whole ball rolling;
60’s“All You Need Is Love” – The Beatles.  I think this pretty much speaks for itself;

70’s“Get Down Tonight” – K.C. and the Sunshine Band.  Sex, Drugs, and Rock ‘n Roll.  Sums up the 70’s pretty succinctly;

80’s“Everybody Wants to Rule the World” – Tears for Fears.  In the decade that saw the fall of the Berlin Wall, this was a song that encapsulated decades of Cold War paranoia;

90’s“Smells Like Teen Spirit” – Nirvana.  Raw angst coupled with boredom. Yep, that was the 90’s.

00’s- Nothing.  A decade, and unfortunately a new generation, bereft of anything culturally meaningful.  Sad to say, but true.
