Won't Get Fooled Again

But that might only qualify as the perfect rock song.

Violent Femmes - Gone Daddy Gone might be a perfect song http://uk.youtube.co...h?v=0Ep_rwoU0TU

After further thought on the matter I think maybe Add It Up would be a more perfect Femmes song http://uk.youtube.co...uHjMbJ51DY&NR=1

This thread begins and ends with the Walker Brothers. Greatest pop group of all time, you could even suggest.

And Scott Walker in general is just the king of pop.

Hahaha, I was going to say Squeeze Box or Magic Bus. Ooh, Ooh, Love Reign O'er Me. And NOT the crappy new version.

yeah! i alway think it's interesting when artists can appeal to a ton of people who like different genres. and of course there's songs that will always be timeless like "louie louie." now that the initial hey ya craze has died down, i appreciate the song more. it was just so clever. and damn catchy. even my mom was really into it.

a lot of motown songs seem to come to mind... "Ain't no mountain high enough" maybe.

"Imagine" by John Lennon... everyone I know likes that song. and of course, a ton of beatles songs... almost any of them.

So make that beginner's guide I requested, you taunting bastard.

please please please just don't put links to the songs, put their names at least. Takes too long to link to all of them. And I really do want to know what you think, this is a very interesting thread.

Besides many that have already been mentioned:

I always thought Ruby Tuesday was perfect.

You are my sunshine.

And perhaps the best ever

Yesterday by Paul McCartney.

And I'm sorry, there's no way you can put Hey Ya up there with Yesterday. It's fun and all, but c'mon.
