Name some of the greatest pop songs of all time

I recently borrowed the best of The Monkees from a friend on a lark, and was reminded of how amazingly melodic and catchy Daydream Believer is.

Of course I've heard Edge's karioke version, but man, the single production, with the horns in the chorus - it's like the feeling of first love packaged into a song.

What are some of your favourite catchy pop songs?

Here Comes Your Man by The Pixies. The perfect pop song. Made even better by the fact that is was never overplayed.

Springsteen "Hungry Heart"
McCartney, "Let it Be", "Yesterday"
Jackson Browne, "The Pretender", "Doctor My Eyes"

That'll do for now.

ABBA - Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

My guilty pleasure. That synth is just so catchy.

Don't Be Cruel by Elvis is one of the simplest and purest pop songs there can be.
