The Top Ten
Are you sure this was the Greatest Song of the 20th Century? Because I am not sure at all. - Metal_Treasure
6TH? NO COMMENT.
This song being performed on the Ed Sullivan show is the biggest event in the history of popular music.Like a musical Tsunami, it swept away everything that came before it, and nothing by Michael Jackson, Nirvana, Eminem, or [God forbid] Miley Cyrus can remotely hold a candle to the lasting effect and influence it had not just on the world of music, but the world as a whole.
There are several Beatle songs that could have been in this spot, because they are of course the most successful and biggest-selling musicians of all-time.
"She Loves You" was part of the musical Tsunami that immediately established them as the GOAT [Greatest Of All Time].
