Michael Jackson's "Thriller" ---- Americans from all walks of life sure love to dance to it, especially in public. :)

America from West Side Story?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 11, 2012 8:14:30 PM PDT
ya, younger generations always make fun of previous generations music, yet another reason finding a single song everyone likes is so hard..

but anyway, making fun of something doesnt mean you dont like it...

maybe "in the year 2525".. or "Time in a Bottle".. or "If..." as Arlee mentioned

maybe something from Heart, or Stevie Nicks / Fleetwood Mac..

Simon & Garfunkel have alot of potential songs to appeal to all americans..

tough job..

Thriller.. talk about songs that get made fun of..

still, for all the michael jackson songs that get made fun of, they still likely appeal to even the people making fun of them

Christmas songs dont even fly, and would likely be burned or banned by alot of 'americans'

but Americans lack real creativity these days.. everything basically sucks unless it kind of copies something from the past.

the best movies out are all made from older movies, stories, books, or comic books.. bar none

the best songs currently follow a similar trend.. they are classic songs most americans know and may or may not like, as people just dont like listening to 'old' stuff so much these days.. but then they are sung by a new voice, or new face.. like Michael Buble, Il Divo, etc..

I think some criteria to follow might be:
- talented, soothing, relaxing voices
- actual musical ability, using real actual instruments, not electronic crap
- isnt immoral, amoral, or even really moral, has nothing regarding adultery, fornication, pathetic whimpering about never getting to be with some guys wife, or whatever.. etc..
- has nothing attached to any stereotypical listener, like cowboys, rockers, gays, black people, gangsters, religious groups, grateful deadheads living in their VWbus, etc..
- speaks about simple ideas, like life, every day stuff.. not issues you'd have to be a recovering crack-addict or prostitute to relate to
- nothing loud or annoying which takes away from the mood or ambiance of a nice sit-down family situation
- nothing any parent in america would feel uncomfortable explaining the meaning of with great candor to their young children
- nothing by a boyband or young female pop icon
- should be new, or at least a new rendition of it.. like a new version of 'in the year 2525' sung by a new artist
- something not sung by a complete social screw up
- something which speaks to the core part of humanity and the human condition..
- something everyone on the globe can relate to. because thats what america actually is, a little mini-globe, a UN and then some.. with every nationality and culture on the planet represented

alot of people actually just dont like or listen to any music outside their own ethnic culture's music..

maybe something by Enya would work.. but people on crack actually have a hard time with slow music.. so.. who knows

American Pie by Don McLean

Hey Jude by the Beatles and Money For Nothing by Dire Straits have to be a few of my all time worst songs ever. I cringe every time they come on.

love both of those songs..this is not the worst songs discussion....

I assume "Don't Stop Believin" by Journey would light up ANYONE'S face.

Anything by Journey does exactly the opposite. If that comes on the radio, I can hit the next station button faster than a frogs tongue zapping a fly.

Yes Miami Nights America the Beautiful is a song every American should enjoy and it gets my vote to replace the Star Spangled Banner as our national anthem. But I think the reality is that most Americans like "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix A Lot, at least those of the male variety.

"I like big butts and I can not lie
You other brothers can't deny
That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
And a round thing in your face
You get sprung, wanna pull out your tough
'Cause you notice that butt was stuffed"
