Amazing song that always makes me dance-- super fun, and gorgeous voices! Lyrics are great, beat is great, and Michael's fun sensuality just wraps up the whole package!

It's an #1 hit, Don't blame it the sun shine
Don't blame it the moon light
Don't blame it the good times
BLAM IT ON THE BOOGIE - SmoothCriminal

Wow this song is so magical!
Just when I hear the beat of this I want to dance!
Don't blame it the sun shine
Don't blame it the moon light
Don't blame it the goog times

Beautiful! :X - Laryssa

108 Samba Pa Ti - Santana

110 T.N.T. - AC/DC

loved this song. also loved Daniel Spillane's verision on the 2nd series of Australian Idol.

111 Because the Night - Patti Smith

No Patti Smith in this listing?! This song was co-written with Bruce Springsteen, it's probably the most well known tune from the complete artist and living legend she is.
I had the great honor to see her in first part of a R.E.M. show (1999 in Paris, she was a special guest), what an incredible moment which I will never forget... her voice gave me goose bumps. - Lotuscandy

112 No Woman, No Cry - Bob Marley
113 September - Earth, Wind & Fire V 1 Comment
114 Let It Be - The Beatles

Honestly, I think that Imagine should be number 1, but Let it Be is just too low!

115 Wuthering Heights - Kate Bush V 1 Comment
116 Black Dog - Led Zeppelin

Simply amazing

117 What's Going On - Marvin Gaye
118 Moondance - Van Morrison
119 Let's Stay Together - Al Green

This list dissapoints me due to a lack of Soul and Jazz music. I am a jazz musician who loves all types of music, especially Soul and Blues-Rock.

120 What Have You Got Planned Tonight, Diana - Merle Haggard
