Top 10 Songs That Should Be the National Anthem of the Earth

This is a hypothetical kinda thing. Pick ONE song, to represent the world as a people. Of every race, and every ideology. A song that bonds the world together like no other (And let's just exclude murderers in the time being)

The Top Ten

1 What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

Well, that would make the most sense. - gemcloben

2 Wavin' Flag - K'naan
3 Ode to Joy - Ludwig Van Beethoven
4 Amazing Grace - Judy Collins
5 We Are the World - USA for Africa

Literally, We ARE The World - BeatlesFan1964

6 Across the Universe - The Beatles
7 Echoes - Pink Floyd

The song is 23 minutes long, so I'm sure it has enough different sounding sections to represent ANYTHING, but I'm looking specifically at the section just before the vocals come in, and the vocal section. - higgsboson2142

8 Circle of Life - Carmen Twillie & Lebo M
9 Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground - Blind Willie Johnson

The only song here to be featured on the Voyager Golden Record, sent out in 1977. Carl Sagan chose the song to represent the isolation and loneliness of the Earth in the vast darkness of space. - higgsboson2142

10 We Shall Overcome - Pete Seeger

The Newcomers

? All Star - Smash Mouth
