Number 1 should be Dream Theater's A Change Of Seasons.

I think they accidentally hit '1' twice next to 'Good Vibrations'. Because that is the best song ever.

19) ABBA – Dancing Queen
18) Don McLean – American Pie
17) Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit
16) Elvis Presley – Heartbreak Hotel (guessed by tilli)
15) Michael Jackson – Billi Jean (guessed by vaz02 and POP-ROMANCER)
14) Madonna – Like a Virgin
13) Bob Dylan – Like a Rolling Stone (guessed by I'm Ready, vaz02, POP-ROMANCER, and Canadiens1160)
12) Bruce Springsteen – Born in the USA
11) The Beach Boys – Good Vibrations
10) The Beatles – Hey Jude (guessed by Tilli, POP-ROMANCER)
9) James Brown – I Feel Good
8) Louis Armstrong – What a Wonderful World (guessed by all except vaz02)
7) The Bee Gees – Staying Alive
6) Billy Haley and the Comets – Rock Around the Clock
5) Aretha Franklin – R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
4) Simon and Garfunkel – Bridge Over Troubled Water (everyone but vaz02)
3) The Rolling Stones – (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (technically no one, but realistically everyone but Canadiens1160 and POP-ROMANCER
2) ??? - ???
1) ??? - ???

No one has the last two exactly right, so I'll leave it running. I will say though that both songs have been posted. I will also say I much prefer Tony Bennett's version of What a Wodnerful World.

I downloaded Learning to Live and Lost Without You the other day. Both were ok, Learning to Live was like a marathon.

If #20 isn't One, then it's gotta be Where the Streets Have No Name.
